Each new Samsung Galaxy model causes a buzz among fans, and after a short time, the new model is at the top of the lists of the best smartphones. So far, there is no reason to doubt that the same principle will work with the Galaxy S10 model. Moreover, serious competition from Apple and Huawei makes you think about what changes the company will make to the concept of an already almost perfect smartphone.
Most likely, the new smartphone will be announced in early 2019. It is even more likely that the new smartphone will be presented to the public at MWC 2019 in February. This is what numerous sources say, based on the experience of previous smartphones. This is exactly what happened with the S8 and S9 models. But even if the company chooses a different time and place, most likely, according to tradition, the smartphone will be announced before March 2019. At the same time, the price, apparently, will be slightly higher than that of previous models.
Design is that part of the Samsung Galaxy that hasn’t changed in a relatively long time. Therefore, we can assume that in this regard, the smartphone will change its appearance a little. For example, some sources report that new body colors will appear in the lineup: black, gray, blue, red, yellow and green.
Other sources report on the size and resolution of the smartphone, suggesting that the aspect ratio will be 19:9, that is, the Galaxy S10 will be longer than the previous model. The resolution will be 1440x3040, which is also more than on the Galaxy S9 model.
In order to achieve this resolution and fit such a display into the same body, Samsung will have to reduce the bezels or even get rid of them completely.
What most likely should not be expected from Samsung is the “bangs”. The company was very critical of this decision on the Google Pixel 3 XL, so no one expects such an innovation for Samsung.
But the company may well get rid of the frames, especially if you believe the promo image of the Galaxy A8S.
Biometric data protection
With the incredibly sophisticated Face ID system introduced by Apple, Samsung has long needed a worthy alternative. Therefore, judging by the speculation, the Galaxy S10 will use a Qualcomm ultrasound scanner, which will be built into the display. Rumors are only confirmed by the fact that Qualcomm is developing a third-generation ultrasound scanner. It has not been announced yet, but if it appears before the announcement of the smartphone, it will most likely appear on it.
A 3D scanner, similar in principle to Face ID, may be used to scan the face. If you think about it, such changes were expected from earlier smartphone models. What’s more, the new type of fingerprint scanner is said to be placed on more expensive models, while the base one will get a regular optical scanner.
By the way, a speaker can also be placed on the display, since according to rumors, the company is already developing developments that allow such a scenario.
Analysts say that Samsung may equip the new smartphone model with a triple camera and, if that was not enough, it will get an additional 3D matrix for AR content. At the same time, the base model can get a single camera, and the average one can get a double one.
As for the most advanced triple camera, experts say that it will consist of a 12MP and 16MP wide-angle camera and a 13MP telephoto lens.
The 12-megapixel lens is rumored to be f/1.5 to f/2.4, exactly the same specs as the camera on the Samsung Galaxy S9. The 16-megapixel lens will have an f/1.9 aperture and a 123-degree field of view. The 13MP aperture will get f/2.4 aperture. There is no confirmation of this information yet, but all the characteristics sound quite convincing.
Many also believe that the front camera can become double in the new model. Thus, as many as five cameras will be placed on one smartphone. But this will not be done in order to improve the quality of the selfie, but in order to use the smartphone unlock system using face recognition.
New leaks have revealed that the Galaxy S10 will be powered by a Snapdragon 855 processor, smaller but much more powerful than the Snapdragon 845.
In terms of RAM, the new Samsung model is said to require at least 8GB of RAM. Some sources even lean towards the possibility of using 12GB of memory on a more powerful smartphone model.
Such a device will also need a lot of built-in memory, so the assumptions boil down to the fact that even the base model will have 128GB of memory in order to store information and download applications.
The most interesting point was overgrown with a lot of assumptions, many of which rely on the path that other manufacturers have taken. For example, many believe that the model, being the tenth, is more likely to be called Samsung Galaxy X instead of Galaxy S10, especially since the head of Samsung’s mobile devices department argued that the company was not sure whether to keep S in the device numbering.
It is difficult to say what name the new smartphone will eventually receive, but most likely, something completely new awaits us.
What users want to see
According to users, the Samsung Galaxy smartphone is very good, but still requires a number of improvements. One of the most common requirements is a larger battery. On average, the smartphone is able to work without additional recharging during the day, but users would like to be able to play games more often and use the smartphone to watch videos without worrying about the spent charge. Now the volume is 3000mAh, and I would like to increase this number.
In terms of design, users tend to expect a bezel-less look for a smartphone as the rest of the companies definitely follow this trend and add their own details to the new type of design, while the Galaxy sticks to the classic look of the series. They want to improve the quality of photos, and AR emoji, and much more, despite the fact that, in general, the smartphone has practically no serious shortcomings.
In the meantime, we can only hope that soon we will find out exactly which path Samsung will take and how everyone’s favorite smartphone will change in 2019.
