Samsung's next unpacked event is scheduled for February 20, and while the Korean electronics giant has not frankly said it will be the new Galaxy S10, the past and a lot of not-so-subtle clues to anything else as a guarantee that we will officially see the company's shiny new flagship smartphone next week.
To freshen up even more, as Samsung was a slightly dull year in 201
Models: At least three new Galaxy S10s (and maybe a few more)
One of the biggest changes for 2019 is that Samsung has expanded the Galaxy S10 series to three different models based on earlier reports: the Galaxy S10E , the standard Galaxy S10 and the big Galaxy S10 +.
The new entry is the Galaxy S10E, where the "E" is allegedly for Essential with Samsung positioning the S10E as a kind of more affordable Galaxy S10 Lite, featuring fancy extras such as rounded glass sides, an Touchscreen fingerprint readers, and triple reversing cameras for something simpler and cheaper.
Meanwhile, the S10 and S10 + will take their normal role as a medium and large option in Samsung's portfolio. And although it has not been confirmed yet, it is also referred to as the Limited Edition S10 + with a storage space and a fourth Galaxy S10 variant of the Galaxy S10X that offers top-notch and a 5G-capable modem
Design: The punched-out camera Mainstream
For years, Samsung's flagship cell phones with curved glass panels at the front and back, held together by a thin strip of aluminum, centered the S10, that does not seem to change. With the year in which the score is now firmly behind us, Samsung had come up with something new to make sure that people can still take selfies.
Sun for 2019 After Samsung tested the concept on the mid-range Galaxy A8S, Samsung also seems to be bringing its pinhole camera to the Galaxy S10. The main difference between a score and a pinhole camera is that this camera is completely surrounded by a display on all sides. This gives the phone manufacturers a little more freedom to restrict the aperture and decide where to go to the front-facing camera. Based on numerous leaked images of the Galaxy S10, Samsung appears to be the best place for its hole cam to be the top right corner of the screen.
An interesting feature of the hole-hole camera is that, according to Leaker Ice Universe You can simply activate the selfie-cam by sliding your finger over the camera and pulling down. It's a great trick, but if you're the person who worries about smearing your camera lens, you should skip this before taking a picture.
19659006] Other major enhancements to the Galaxy S10 include a triple rear view camera consisting of standard, wide-angle, and telephoto lenses and the elimination of a rear-facing fingerprint sensor. Instead, the Galaxy S10 has an in-screen fingerprint reader, as we've seen on the OnePlus 6T and others. This will allow you to unlock your device simply by touching a specific area on the display.
As with the Galaxy 10E, as it has no devices -Screen fingerprint reader To keep the price low, a side-mounted fingerprint reader is offered instead.
Specifications: Minor upgrades, larger batteries, and wireless charging with reverse function
Depending on how much you're prepared to buy a Galaxy S10 with up to 12GB of RAM and 1TB of storage space. But that's an overkill for almost everyone. In more down to earth configurations, the Galaxy S10 offers a modest safety factor over the S9 between 4 GB and 8 GB of RAM and 64 GB of storage space thanks to its new Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 processor (or Exynos 9820 processor depending on the region). also for microSD storage space).
What's more exciting are some of the smaller features that are included in the Galaxy S10, such as z Reverse Wireless Charging and the Maintaining the handy headphone output . However, these upgrades are not without compromise, as Samsung apparently dispenses with the existing on the front of the Galaxy S phone iris sensor, which goes back to the Galaxy S8.
But the most impressive thing about the new Galaxy S10 is that despite the claims of Ice Universe that the phone is less than 8mm thick, the S10 + one Function has a 4100 mAh battery, which is 15 percent larger than the S9 +'s 3,500 mAh battery. I hope all other versions of the Galaxy S10 have an equally strong battery charge.
Infinity Flex Display: What about Samsung's curvy phone?
If you've wondered what happened to Samsung's flexible phone after the company annoyed it last autumn, do not worry, because Samsung has posted a video claiming the future will develop on February 20 ,
Unfortunately not since the first Tease there was a lot of new information about the Galaxy F. Apart from Samsung, which has already confirmed that the device is over there's not much else left for the Galaxy F.
] Galaxy Buds and Galaxy Watch
What does a flexible display have in addition to a secondary "cover screen" on the outside of the device to 7.3 inches unfolds As Samsung devices unveiled, Samsung's unpacked event could pamper us with Samsung's new wireless earphones, which are being struck for the first time with the Galaxy brand name and a new Galaxy Sport, allegedly slimmer against Samsung's current flagship smartwatch.
The first comes at a critical time, as Apple has already swept the market with its own wireless earphones, so Samsung is anxious to improve the current Gear IconX buds by adding Bluetooth connectivity, 8 GB of internal storage and a housing with built-in wireless charger.
19659006] Meanwhile the Galaxy Sport is rumored to support Samsung's wearable line with a slightly cheaper Tizen-based watch. Some of the major rumors we've heard about the Galaxy Sport include renderings showing a device with no rotating bezels from Samsung, which not only looks like a bad move, but also questions the accuracy of the leaks.
Expected Price and Availability
Due to a leaked billboard in Indonesia, pre-orders for the new Galaxy S10 are expected to begin on the day after the unpacked event on February 21st. Orders will be shipped in mid-March. According to allegedly from the Netherlands the prices for S10E, S10 and S10 + start at 750 euros, 900 euros and 1,000 euros, respectively.
In other words, if you convert these numbers to US dollars, prices will feel a bit steep, with the S10E earning around $ 850 becomes. Fortunately, Gizmodo UK reported more reasonable prices for the Galaxy S10 line with the S10E starting at 670 euros. If we take this into account and adjust a bit to the Galaxy's previous starting prices in the US, I would assume that starting prices are closer to $ 750, $ 850 and $ 950 or $ 1,000 for the Galaxy S10 main trio.
As for the Galaxy S10X and the Galaxy F, the rumors are hanging in the range of $ 1,500 to $ 1,700 for the 5G-capable modem and the Galaxy F's bendable display due to the extra cost of S10X. In short: Neither of these devices will be a realistic option for a typical buyer.
But with so much information based mainly on rumors and leaks, it always remains a little surprise day. So come back to Gizmodo on February 20, where Samsung Unpacked 2019 will be live with all new Galaxy devices.
