Electronics manufacturing giant Samsung is apparently set to break into the defense and consumer level weapons industry with a new take on firearms design. Normally focused on their mobile phone and flat screen display product lines, the South Korean conglomerate seems to be developing handheld armament that diverges from typical modern-day design. Apparently not based on the deflaguration powders inside of metal cartridges meant to push a projectile down and out of a barrel, the new Samsung design may incorporate a different type of energy generator as a means of lethality. Of course, with only a few leaked images of the redesign, we are mostly left with conjecture rather than definitive conclusions.
According to initial reports, the new release is not just a repackaging of previous advances. Instead, Samsung took a giant leap and reimagined how hand held weapons should look and feel to both the shooter and bystander alike. Unlike traditional firearms, the new platform attempts to change the way people feel about certain situations rather than just looking at weapons as inanimate objects that can’t function without some sort of overt human interaction.
Photos of the soon to be released prototype have leaked quietly across the internet, pictured here aside a current traditional firearms design.
Stay tuned to TFB for additional news and information surrounding Samsung’s entrance into the global handheld weapons market.
Less cross-platform confusion is in our emoji futures, as Samsung’s 🙄 rolling eyes emoji will soon represent the disdain shown on other manufacturers’ devices instead of its current pleased, somewhat expectant expression.
Samsung is releasing Experience 9.0 now as part of its Android Oreo update for Galaxy S8 users. Access to this update will (us usual) vary by region and carrier, with the first users having just received this update over the preceding days.
A wider release of Experience 9.0 is likely if or when this version comes standard on the rumored Galaxy S9 which is expected to be announced on February 25 at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Spain.
