Samsung Galaxy S10 Mobile Phone – Preview – Latest Technology News
Samsung Galaxy S10 Mobile Phone – Preview – Latest Technology News – This New device from Samsung is rumored to sink Apple’s Iphones with the latest ground breaking new Tech.
So now lets dive deeper into Samsung Galaxy S10 specs, release date, and other details, which have been officially confirmed by Samsung executives.
Samsung Galaxy S10 – 3 Versions
A Reliable source said in a Weibo post that Samsung was preparing to launch three models of Galaxy S10. There will be a 6.4-inch model, a 6.1-inch version, and a smaller 5.8-inch variant. They are code-named Beyond 0, Beyond 1, and Beyond 2. The 5.8-inch Beyond 0 would be an affordable model with trimmed down specs to take on phones from Huawei and OnePlus.
The Beyond 1 and Beyond 2 will be direct successors to Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus. The Galaxy S10 and S10 Plus would get the ultrasonic fingerprint solution, but the smallest model is said to feature a side-mounted fingerprint reader similar to Moto Z3 Play. If it happens, it will be the first time Samsung would use a side-mounted fingerprint scanner on the Galaxy S series. The Bell points out that the cost of ultrasonic sensors could be $15 per unit, much higher than the Galaxy S9 rear-mounted fingerprint sensor’s $2 per unit.
Samsung Galaxy S10 will support 5G technology
A recent report from Business Korea indicates that the Galaxy S10 could be Samsung’s first phone to support 5G connectivity. Telecom carriers in Samsung’s home country are preparing to roll out 5G services by March 2019, and Samsung will be ready to take advantage of this new technology.
Qualcomm’s SVP Durga Prasad Malladi recently said in an interview the first phones with 5G support will launch within a year. Samsung and Qualcomm have been long-time partners, and Qualcomm’s 5G chips will certainly find their way into Samsung’s phones. The Korean company wouldn’t want a mid-range or low-end phone to be its first handset with 5G support. We expect the Galaxy S10 to be Samsung’s first phone with 5G technology. The 5G buzz will help Samsung sell more Galaxy S10 units.
Samsung Galaxy S10 Plus will get a triple camera
Samsung will try to catch up with Huawei’s P20 Pro by adding a triple camera system to the Galaxy S10 Plus next year, according to KB Securities analyst Kim Dong-won. The P20 Pro is the leader in smartphone photography right now, leaving Galaxy S9 Plus, iPhone X, and Google Pixel 2 far behind.
The Samsung Galaxy S10 Plus will feature a regular 12MP main lens with variable apertures, a 16-megapixel 120-degree ultra wide-angle lens with f/1.9 aperture, and a 13MP telephoto lens on the back that supports up to 3x optical zoom. The phone is also said to have dual cameras on the front, which could allow users to take portrait selfies. The rear cameras will be arranged horizontally with the main sensor in the middle, the super wide-angle lens on the right, and telephoto lens on the left.
The regular Galaxy S10 as well as the 5.8-inch Beyond 0 will both have dual cameras on the back. It would consist of a 12MP main lens with variable apertures and a 16MP ultra wide-angle lens with a fixed f/1.9 aperture.
Samsung Galaxy S10 with ultrasonic fingerprint sensor
Samsung is finally going to ditch the rear-mounted fingerprint reader with the next year’s Galaxy S10 flagship. The company’s R&D team has been trying to integrate the fingerprint sensor under the display for years. Speaking at an event in Wuhan, China, Samsung’s mobile business head DJ Koh told media that the company would not bring optical fingerprint solution to the Galaxy S10 because it does not deliver a good user experience.
Ultrasonic sensors have a distinct advantage over their optical counterparts in that the former would work even when the screen is dirty. With ultrasonic sensors, the entire display could act as a fingerprint sensor. They emit ultrasonic pulses to capture your fingerprint. According to Korean site The Bell, Qualcomm will supply the ultrasonic sensors for the Galaxy S10
Samsung Galaxy S10 – design and display?
Samsung Galaxy S10 there is more to them than just screen size. According to The Bell, the Korean electronics giant has finalized the Galaxy S10 design. Fortunately, the new phones will not have the much-maligned display notch. Instead, Samsung will dramatically reduce the top and bottom bezels to increase the screen space.
According to Ice Universe, the Galaxy S10 will have a screen-to-body ratio of 94%, much higher than the Galaxy S9’s 83%. It means the Super AMOLED Infinity display will cover almost entire front panel. Samsung has to keep the top bezel until it manages to incorporate the ear speaker, front camera, and other sensors under the OLED display. The upcoming phones will have an 18.5:9 aspect ratio, the same as the current Galaxy S9.
Samsung will also enhance the screen resolution with the next year’s model. Ice Universe said in a recent tweet that the Samsung Galaxy S10 would have a screen resolution of more than 600ppi.
Samsung Galaxy S10 – 3D sensing modules
The current Galaxy S9 comes with an iris scanner and facial recognition. The phone combines data from both of them to unlock the device. But Samsung still doesn’t consider them secure enough for financial transactions. That’s why it has kept the rear-mounted fingerprint sensor until now. The rumor mill claims Samsung could add a 3D depth-sensing module to the Samsung Galaxy S10 to take on Apple’s Face ID.
The Korean company is working with Israel-based Mantis Vision to integrate 3D sensing modules into its future smartphones. Besides enabling advanced facial recognition, the 3D sensors could also be used for augmented reality and 3D content recording.
Samsung Galaxy S10 – Hardware specs
Ice Universe recently posted on Chinese microblogging site Weibo that the Galaxy S10 would pack at least 6GB LPDDR5 RAM and 64GB of base storage. The smaller 5.8 Beyond 0 could get only 4GB RAM while the 6.4-inch Galaxy S10 Plus could offer up to 8GB RAM.
The phone will be powered by Qualcomm’s upcoming Snapdragon 855 or Samsung’s in-house Exynos 9820 chips depending on the market. Both the chips would be produced using the 7nm manufacturing process, meaning they would be faster and more energy efficient than their respective predecessors.
The Snapdragon variant will likely be sold in the US and China, while the Exynos model will be sold in international markets. The processors will also be tuned to handle artificial intelligence-related tasks. The phones should retain the 3.5mm headphone jack and the microSD card slot.
Samsung Galaxy S10- Price & release date
We expect the Galaxy S10 and S10 Plus to be more expensive than their respective predecessors. The new technologies such as ultrasonic fingerprint sensor, 3D sensing modules, triple cameras on the back, dual selfies cameras, and others will push up the cost of production, which Samsung will eventually pass on to consumers.
The 5.8-inch Beyond 0 model could have a more affordable price tag considering it would lack the triple camera, ultrasonic fingerprint, and a few other features. It will likely compete against devices such as OnePlus 6, so we expect it to cost between $500 and $600.
As for the release date, Samsung refreshes the Galaxy S series around the Mobile World Congress (MWC). There have been speculations that Samsung could introduce the Galaxy S10 earlier than usual, probably at Consumer Electronics Show in January, to accommodate the upcoming foldable phone. But Ice Universe reported recently that the Galaxy S10 will be unveiled at the MWC and the foldable device will debut at the CES.Source valuewalk.
