We are just days away from Samsung's massive Samsung Galaxy S10 event on February 20th, and we feel like it will be one of the biggest phone ads Samsung has ever made. Fortunately, since we live in a world where there are so many leaks and manufacturers are not even trying to keep the secret, we already know a lot about Samsung's new phones.
So, if you can not wait for the official announcement of February 20th, here is all we know so far:
The S10 and S10 Plus
Samsung's product line will remain unchanged from the past few years: a standard S10 model and a larger S10 Plus, this time with 6.1-inch and 6.3-inch screens, respectively. And thanks to a complete technical sheet of GSMArenawe also know all the details of both phones:
Both phones should be equipped with Samsung's new Infinity O perforated screen, which avoids the notched design of most 2018 models for a front-facing camera directly through the screen. (The cut-out on the Plus is a bit wider because it contains two cameras.) The S10 and S10 Plus screens will both have AMOLED Gorilla Glass 6 panels at a resolution of 3040 x 1440 QHD +, the main difference ranging from Screen size at the S10 Plus. with an additional front camera (and therefore a larger hole punch).
Leakage of photos of AllAboutSamsung and official makes of WinFuture Indicate that, aside from the reworked front camera system, the overall design of the S10 and S10 Plus should be quite similar to last year's S9 – Samsung retains the upper and lower curved frames as well as the sides inclined 3D glass, as well as a dedicated Bixby button, a USB-C charging port and a 3.5mm headphone jack.
Things get a little more interesting at the back: the fingerprint sensor, which would have been built directly on the front screen, has disappeared, and the new system is a three camera system (for models S10 and S10 Plus, unlike the S9 range). which offered different camera systems on the S9 and S9 Plus models). The three cameras are divided into a 12-megapixel (f / 2.4) telephoto lens, a 12-megapixel (f / 1.5) wide-angle lens, and an ultra-wide 16 megapixel (f / 2.2) lens. – expect that Samsung will also focus a lot on what these lenses can do during the announcement.
Samsung should also change the specifications of the S10 range: the new phones would benefit from the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 processor or the Samsung Exynos 9820 chipset, depending on the region. according to WinFuture, the S10 will offer a 128GB model with 6GB of RAM and a 512GB / 8GB version, while the S10 Plus will offer a third maximum capacity version with 1TB of storage and 12GB of RAM. The other major difference between the two phones is the size of the battery: the S10 has a battery of 3100 mAh, while the S10 Plus offers a larger cell of 4100 mAh.
Finally, there are rumors of a new inverted wireless charging feature that will allow you to charge an accessory (like the already leaked Galaxy Buds) directly from the S10 or S10 Plus, wirelessly needed.
The rumor has been strangely quiet as far as pricing is concerned, although this depends largely on some operators, but we know the approximate release date: Samsung is already allowing customers to book phones by March 8th.
The cheaper S10e could take on the iPhone XR
In addition to the standard S10 models, a new, cheaper S10e variant – which will be a little duller than its brighter siblings – has also been the focus of a leak.
The S10e is less flashy than the classic S10: its 2280 x 1080 (5.8-inch) screen, with a smaller and lower resolution (although still with a punched camera), does not have the curved sides of its top counterparts of range. There is apparently no ultrasonic fingerprint reader: instead, users will need to access a fingerprint reader located on the side of the device. The rear camera is also downgraded, offering a two-camera system instead of the flashy three-lens configuration on larger phones.
It is said that Samsung offers the same internal equipment on the smaller S10e – it's not because you have a cheaper phone than a cheaper phone than you buy a lower one. By WinFuture, expect the same Snapdragon 855 processor, with a pair of storage models of 6GB RAM / 128GB and 8GB RAM / 256GB.
The biggest question for the S10e is unfortunately the major detail that has not filtered yet: how much will it cost compared to the full-fledged S10.
Galaxy S10 X?
There are also rumors that Samsung may release another variant of the S10 equipped with 5G technology. SamMobile reports will be called the Galaxy S10 X. The details on the S10 X are much thinner, although an early rumor of The Wall Street Journal In November, Samsung claimed that Samsung was working on a large 5G phone called "Beyond X", which would offer a large 6.7-inch screen (for comparison, the Galaxy Note 9 has a 6.4-inch screen), a total of six cameras (two facing forward and four back) and support for 5G. SamMobile also claims that the S10 X will offer a 5000 mAh battery and a minimum of 256 GB of storage by default.
Assuming all these features are real, the Galaxy S10 X could steal the show from its more ordinary cousins. This is of course if Samsung has no more surprises in store.
Enter the folding phone
Surprises as a real revealer for his folding phone, for which the company built a hype and teasing for months. There are even fewer details circulating here than for the S10 X, but since Samsung had already planned a rough prototype of the device in November, we know a little bit.
Assuming things have not changed dramatically since then, the folding phone goes from a 4.58-inch chocolate bar form factor to a 7.3-inch tablet screen, which Samsung calls its Infinity Flex display. The phone – which would be called the Galaxy F – will probably not be cheap, with rumors that Samsung would ruminate a price of nearly $ 1,800 in November, although this issue was not yet final.
Hopefully Samsung will decide to shed a little more light on the situation by taking a proper look at the folding phone during the event.
Samsung also announces a series of new accessories at the event, which we know since Samsung has filtered them all through its own Galaxy Wearable app. There is a new Galaxy Watch Active smart watch and a pair of Galaxy Fit and Galaxy Fit e trackers. The most interesting accessory could be the Galaxy Buds, which looks like Samsung's latest attempts to provide a response to the popular AirPod Apple. We will likely have more concrete details on all these products during the event.
