SAMSUNG GALAXY S10

Samsung Galaxy S10’s 5G credentials come from reports detailing how Qualcomm and the South Korean maker have recently announced a ‘strategic relationship’ agreement, which specifically mentions the “transition to 5G”.

A transition to 5G for the S10 would make perfect sense for the flagship, and add to its list of features that will have Apple worried.

A 5G connection on the S10 would allow users simply incredible download and upload speeds,

while also opening the gateway to play AAA games via streaming services like PS Now, as well as stream high-fidelity 4K movies.

With the S10 slated for launch at Mobile World Congress 2019, which takes place at the end of February,

it would also cement Samsung’s position at the fore of the 5G charge, leaving many of its rivals playing catch up.

If we were to make a call, though, we would expect only the “Beyond 1” and “Beyond 2” models to have a 5G connection,

not the entry level “Beyond 0” model.

Still, the idea of holding a 5G-equipped smartphone as early as February next year,

if not earlier (see Sony’s 5G phone below) is a mouth-watering proposition.

Latest Galaxy S10 Leaks and Rumors (Sept. 28 2018)

  • A new leak suggests that the Galaxy S10 will come in “no less than nine” new color gradients.

Samsung mobile chief DJ Koh also said at a speaking engagement that the Galaxy S10 would offer “amazing” colors.

  • Yet more rumors suggest there could be as many as three models of the Galaxy S10 at 5.8- and 6.4-inch sizes,

and one of them may employ a flat display.

  • Samsung may be making a special version of the Galaxy S10 with 5G capability. But this would not be the standard model.

Galaxy S10 release date

It’s too soon to predict the exact release date for the Galaxy S10,

but if history is any guide, Samsung will likely stick to a similar timetable in 2019 as in other years.

That means you should expect to see the new handset announced at next year’s Mobile World Congress show,

which gets underway Feb. 25. If Samsung follows a similar pattern for the S10 as did for the S9, the new phone would hit shelves by the middle of March 2019.

However, it’s possible that the S10 won’t be the first premium phone Samsung introduces next year.

Serial leaker Ice Universe says that Samsung could unveil its foldable Galaxy X phone at CES 2019 in January.

Under this scenario, the S10 would still be in line to debut at Mobile World Congress the following month.

In-display fingerprint sensor

While Samsung missed its opportunity to become the first phone maker offering in-display fingerprint scanning technology,

that highly-anticipated feature will finally make its way to the Galaxy S10, according to reports.

ETNews has linked the Galaxy S10 to in-display fingerprint recognition. According to the site, the sensor will be provided by Qualcomm,

and represents the third generation of the company’s ultrasonic technology.

That last detail is critical, because D.J. Koh reportedly has expressed that optical sensors offer a “bad user experience”compared to their ultrasonic counterparts.

However, it’s possible that one version of the S10 released in 2019 may not have an embedded fingerprint sensor.

A report from SamMobile suggests that one model might move the fingerprint reader to the side of the phone.

Not much is known about the feature yet, but it’s believed that the Mantis Vision technology will be able to compete on the same level as the Face ID feature on the iPhone X.

A 3D face scanner

Samsung has been criticized for not developing a 3D face scanner to compete with the Face ID in Apple’s iPhone X.

But a report from The Investor says that Samsung has partnered with 3D camera firm Mantis Vision to finally get a 3D scanner into the Galaxy S10.

Triple cameras in tow

Huawei’s P20 Pro introduced us to the concept of three rear cameras this year, with the extra lens helping produce better shots in low-light.

Samsung reportedly is eyeing a triple-lens setup for its next Galaxy phone, with KB Securities analyst Kim Dong-won publishing a research note that says the S10 will have three cameras on the rear, SAMSUNG GALAXY S10 DETAILS SUDDENLY LEAK – FIRST 5G PHONES COMING IN 2019

(Apple is reportedly looking at adding the feature to its phones, possibly as soon as this fall to get the jump on the S10.)

But why stop with just three rear lenses? The Bell reports that Samsung might add a second front lens to the Galaxy S10,

all the better for supporting Portrait Mode effects on selfies. That would give the S10 five cameras in total. For what it’s worth,

LG is also rumored to be going with a five-camera design for its upcoming LG V40 later this year.

Improved AR Emoji

AR Emoji were one of the more hyped features of the Galaxy S9 range, but they were also one of the least impressive aspects of these phones.

There are a few reasons for this. Beyond their inherently gimmicky nature it can also be hard to create one that looks like you,

and when recording a video of yourself using the emoji, the camera’s facial recognition isn’t powerful enough to do it justice.

While AR Emoji will probably never be an essential feature, SAMSUNG GALAXY S10 DETAILS SUDDENLY LEAK – FIRST 5G PHONES COMING IN 2019

if Samsung’s going to keep using them we’d like to see them at least rival Apple’s Animoji next time around.

An analyst reckons Samsung is considering a triple-lens camera for the Samsung Galaxy S10, along with a 3D sensor for augmented reality content.

Analyst chatter isn’t always that reliable, but it would make sense if Samsung wants to compete with the Huawei P20 Pro and the rumored triple-lens iPhone.

It’s also a rumor that we’ve now heard again, with a source claiming that while the most basic model of the Galaxy S10 might have just a single-lens camera

and the middle model might have a dual-lens one, the biggest (and most expensive) version of the Samsung Galaxy S10 would have a triple-lens camera.
