Samsung Galaxy Note 9 has not yet emerged, and the network is already full of rumors about the new smartphone Samsung — Galaxy S10. Portal PhoneArena gathered all known information.
Most likely in 2019 Samsung will introduce three version of its flagship smartphone.
The base model Galaxy S10 received the code name “Beyond 0”. Distinctive features:
- display with a diagonal of 5.8 inches;
- the fingerprint scanner on the side face;
- one primary and one selfie-Cam.
An enlarged model of the Samsung Galaxy S10, also known as “Beyond 1”:
- Infinity-display with a diagonal of 6.1 inches and rounded edges;
- built-in screen fingerprint scanner;
- one selfie camera and two lenses on its rear panel, normal and tele.
Galaxy S10+ or “Beyond 2”:
- Infinity-display with a diagonal of 6.44 inches;
- Podebrady fingerprint sensor;
- five cameras: two in front and three normal, telephoto and wide angle — on the rear panel.
Most likely, Samsung will remain true to itself, so the differences in appearance of the models Galaxy Galaxy S9 and S10 will not be significant. You may change the ratio of the area of the screen to the body of the smartphone. Samsung’s flagship 2018 already exceeds this parameter, the iPhone X.
Many Android manufacturers have found a way to disable the fingerprint scanner from the front panel under the screen or on the side. Probably, Samsung will take advantage of the developments in smartphones Sony Xperia Z5 and Vivo, and will try to move the fingerprint sensor from the rear panel.
To ensure reliability and durability, all three flagship will be protected from moisture and dust according to IP68 standard.
According to rumors, the base version of the Samsung Galaxy S10 will get the Super AMOLED screen of the standard FHD+ or QHD+ with an aspect ratio of 18:9 and a diagonal of 5.8 inches.
Older model Galaxy S10 will be equipped with the QHD+ Super AMOLED-display with a diagonal of 6.1 inches and rounded edges. Similar, but larger, and get Samsung Galaxy S10+.
Samsung Galaxy designed for the American market, and will be running the Qualcomm chipsets. Everyone else will get the brand Samsung Exynos processor.
Out of the entire range of Qualcomm preference would probably be given Snapdragon 855 that can compete with the chipset A11 Bionic performance. In a recent benchmark test it managed to score 3033 points in single-core and 10992 points in multi-core testing.
Processor Exynos 9820 is equipped with a GPU block and GPU ARM Mali module G76.
The older version of the Galaxy S10 will be released in versions with 6 and 8 GB and a basic S10 will get 4 GB and 6 GB of RAM.
Users will be able to choose the size of built-in storage: 64 GB, 128 GB or 256 GB. From disk space 512 GB, apparently, was abandoned. All three models will be equipped with slots for microSD memory cards.
Price and release date
The base version of the Galaxy S10 will cost around 600-650 dollars. The standard model with a 6.1-inch screen — starting from 749 dollars. Prices on S10+ will be located in the range from 849 to 1000 dollars. Thus, Samsung can close multiple market segments.
Perhaps the presentation of new models is traditionally scheduled for MWC 2019, which will be held from 25 to 28 February. However, there is a theory that three new Samsung Galaxy will be unveiled at a special event on 24 February 2019.
