Head of Samsung Design America sees future models adjusting to users

Head of Samsung Design America sees future models adjusting to users
The head of Samsung Design America, Dennis Miloseski, spoke at a conference on Saturday night and said that future Samsung devices will benefit from the Korean manufacturer's focus on how users interact with their technology. As the form factor evolves on future Samsung devices, the emphasis will be on improving the relationship between a user and a device. Miloseski says that future devices will know where the user is and make adjustments. In that regard, Miloseski points to the front-facing camera and the way it monitors the user on the Samsung Galaxy S 4, to start or stop a video. The executive said, "It's known that [hardware] design will improve over time, but now we're thinking about 'How do you create a soul for a device?'"

Of course, the "P" word came up-plastic. Once again, Samsung has built its flagship model using plastic leaving the phone feeling a lot different than say, the HTC One which is made of unibody aluminum. Miloseski says that the design process doesn't begin with a particular material in mind. In stead of saying, "Let's make a phone out of metal," the executive says that the decision to use plastic is based on looking at different preferences and tastes and putting it all together in the final design.

The Samsung executive made it a point of saying that the Korean tech giant wants to put less glass and hardware in front of users, helping the mobile world get closer to its goal of connecting people to people.

I bet Samsung design office have a big copying machine!

i think samsung is smart the only way they can have money is copying and sell plastic toy, and they know that to sell more plastic toy is just use their money on advertise and pay some reviewer to say their product is the best and other smartphone is suck and they learn that from apple so when other manufacture use their money to do some research for new innovations and use premium materia, samsung is selling more product

When u have 'better' options available y do u even bother to comment on such a bad phone, r u insecure that ur 'premium' choice will fall short in front this one let the sales do the talkings ;-)

15. yudi.nemesis unregistered

first i know samsung selling more phone than other, cuz i rigth now i have nokia E6-00, galaxy Y, and galaxy s2 but, in may country samsung sales will say everything to sell that plastic toy, oh i'm insecure maybe because my plastic toy can't satisfied me but don't worry i will sell my plastic toy and buy premium smartphone like HTC ONE OR XPERIA ZL, or maybe i just have to wait new innvations from sony cause rumors say they will release new flagship i just follow what samsung mobile chief j.k shin say ''. Innovation is what will get consumers to buy new devices'' :-)

Please stop complaining about Samsung plasticky phone, actually all phones are made with plastic only the back cover are used different materials. If you really care about premium materials and less feature phone, don't buy Samsung phone. You have a freedom and all the choice to choose from. Typing from Galaxy S3.

plastic is ok if samsung use high quality plastic, s3 is 2012 premium device with suck plastic quality, is easy to add some feature in android device and many feature in samsung is just copycat feature and anybody can use it since is not samsung innovations oh yes we all have freedom but i just doesn't agree with what mr shin say innovations is what make consumer buy new device But aggresive marketing is what make consumer buy new device thats why samsung sell more phone

new innovations?hahahahhahahaaaaaaaa.....yours is copy of that iPhone 4 material....yours is a brick...S4 introduces gesture which reminds me of tech movies using gestures on their devices and preparation for flexible AmOled screen sony is flexible Oled which never took off because they cant do it..while sammy introduces a a mobile phone with flexible AmOled....your sonny is a H2O and dust proof which in technological term applicable to devices used on toilets,drains,vacuum cleaners etc...

copying iphone4 material so if sony use plastic it will copy samsung, stupid xperia z have innovative design it use “skeleton frame structure, omni balance, and ip ratting did iphone 4 have that? Did gesture is samsung innovations cause we talk about innovative device here just like mr j,k shin say anyother phone can have that, sony the first when it come flexible screen and you will see it in the future, but rigt now they focus on new screen tech Triluminos displays use quantum dot technology. Sony unveiled a brand new line of BRAVIA HDTVs, 4K displays, and for the first time ever, the world's first, largest (56-inch) OLED-panel 4K TV (This revolutionary 4K monster is currently the best-of-the-best in terms of light clarity, pixel count, color spectrum, and all-around display power) just want to show you what the real innovators can do and one last question did samsung have phone tthat combine beauty, durability and innovations ???

Why do people think apple is so origonal the first iphone actually looks like it coppied design off of a couple htc designs but what it did do different is what should already been done and that was the capasitive touch screen designed to use your finger instead of a stylus. Besides that all smartphones a looking the sam in a way. Wich is the smallest amount of phone with the biggest screen space. They are destined to look the same kinda like a computer or laptop wich all look the same.so basically they all copy based on what we as consumers want.

Just look at the dimensions of S4.the numbers are exactly the same as S3. It is even a bit smaller than htc one. So for me S4 design is perfect because Samsung use 5inches screen on 4.8 inches phone :)

9. yudi.nemesis unregistered

have you ever look XPERIA ZL XPERIA ZL 131.6 x 69.3 x 9.8 mm S4 136.6 x 69.8 x 7.9 mm XPERIA ZL maybe not thiner but have more better screen ratio, new design with premium material thats what i call perfect design S4 just another plastic toy from crapsung with copycat feature but don't worry many people will buy that plastic toy because they are SMART COMPANY WITH MILLION STUPID FANBOY just like you :-)

17. yudi.nemesis unregistered

haha screen i know what how xperia z screen look like because i've seen it its not perfect but good enough i don't mind if don't like xperia z/zl screen but you just stupid if say sony screen quality i will teach you some history lesson so you can know what sony can do with their screen technology 1. Sony CLIÉ PEG-VZ90 was released in 2004, being the first PDA to feature an OLED screen 2. In October 2007, Sony amazed the world when they announced the XEL-1 TV, the world's first OLED TV. 3.Taking 2007's .3mm prototype Sony's made a new one just 80μm-thick. That's about ten times the size of a red blood cell, or just a tiny bit thinner than a single hair. The whole OLED measures 4.1-inches in size, and has a 432 x 240 resolution and a contrast ratio of under 1,000:1. It's another world first, boasting that it's the first time an OLED panel can still stream video while being rolled up (around a cylinder with a 4mm radius) and stretched 4. at Display 2007 Expo. Now, Sony has taken wraps off a new 2.5-inch OLED screen, which it claims to be the world's first flexible, full-color organic electroluminescent display (OLED) built on organic thin-film transistor (TFT) technology. sony full color oled 48 The novel OLED screen is just 0.3mm thick and is made of a glass substrate that allows the users to bend the screen. The flexible full-color display boasts a resolution of 169x120 and weighs a mere 1.5 grams there you go it's just small part of sony innovations just to show you that who the real innovator and who copycat

Lol what do I do with that history? Even sony have fans?? So strange!!! What is xperia? Never heard of it. Is that some kind of phone that has mediocre screen and camera with no multi windows, no air gestures, eye scroll, smart stay/rotate etc

9.8 mm is fatty. Sorry. Totally defeats the purpose of being compact. Just look at the brick Nokia Lumia 920, it's shorter than the HTC 8x but it is HUGE because it is a fatty. The GS4 is svelte and SLICK.

18. yudi.nemesis unregistered

OMG just another stupid fanboy even with 9,8 mm xperia zl still more compact than S3 NOKIA LUMIA 920 10,7 mm with 185g yes is fatty but still feel good in the hand that because nokia use premium plastic and have built in optical image stabilization another innvations sorry i just love innovator so much

s3 is 8.6,,,ok kindly beat the S# first before you compare your Gay phonbe to S4....ever watch ironman?see how tony uses gesture to use his devices....i think s4 were heading to that direction while yours has no innovation at all....the built?grow up...apple innovate that first...but on features and power...s4 all the way....its about brain not beauty.

65. yudi.nemesis unregistered

Can you find white magic on other phone?? Those all feature is just copycat S4 is well rounded phone but not innovative device like mr shin say
