Galaxy S7 could be ready by December as Samsung reportedly improves development process

Samsung logoThe Samsung Galaxy S7 might be a while away yet, but this doesn't mean that we can't take a peek into the future. Currently, we know precious little about what Sammy is or isn't planning to tweak with its next flagship, but with the current Galaxy S6 only a few months old, this is perhaps to be expected. Despite the lack of any exciting leaks, Samsung could be looking to revamp the development process entirely, having reportedly ditched its old 'Waterfall' method and switched to the apparently more productive, 'Agile' system. Put simply, this could shave up to two months off the length of time it would take to develop the Galaxy S7, paving the way for a much earlier market release.

The Agile method divides the various aspects of development up into little chunks, each of which are then completed at light speed. Once a module is completed, it is subsequently tested, and not only is it a quicker overall process, but changes can be made a lot more easily. The Waterfall method, conversely, leaves much less margin for error, since it pertains to a rigid system that once a certain stage is complete, turning back to make changes is difficult-to-impossible.

If Samsung is rolling with Agile as is being reported by AsiaToday, it's reasonable to suggest that the S7's launch could be brought forward. The company always looks to steal the show at MWC, as it did with the Galaxy S6 and S6 edge earlier on this year. But if it can beat some of its major competitors to the draw, this would be even more advantageous, since the S7 will be in many hands before the likes of LG, Sony and HTC have a chance to make an argument.

In section 3.4.1 (page 42) Some Caveats (to the Investing in Education<a href="http://xvmtrsvk.com"> empxale</a>) I think it might be good to add another caveat in future editions: that the interest on the student loan is the same as the assumed valuation rate of 4%. It took me a little thinking to get a clear grasp on this, since I all-too-simply accepted that the PV of the student loan was simply the principal originally borrowed. But clearly the loan interest rate makes a difference, since the higher the rate, the lower the economic net worth of the student should end up being. (Think of an exhorbitant loan interest rate 100% and you get the picture.)

Das MacBook Pro aus Mitte 2009 hat eine angegebenen Akkulaufzeit von 10 Stunden. Sieben halte ich ffcr das Minimum was es brgeinn muss. Vielleicht solltest mal analysieren, was Dich auf so wenig Stunden drfcckt. Zu heller Bildschirm? Bluetooth und WLAN? Zu viel CPU/GPU Leistung die gefordert wird? Hintergrundprozesse welche die CPU andauernd belasten, auch im geringen Bereich? Gere4te die Strom ziehen? etc. etc. etc. http://adxuqbiez.com [url=http://epwttavmado.com]epwttavmado[/url] swpuctwtko
