What (we think) we know about the Samsung Galaxy S10 – TechCrunch


The Galaxy S10 can be revealed at an occasion in San Francisco on February 20. This a lot we all know for positive. Samsung despatched out invitations for the occasion sporting a large quantity just a few weeks again. It’s clear the corporate’s seeking to get out forward of what must be a reasonably action-packed Cellular World Congress this 12 months. 

We all know, too, that the occasion can be event for the corporate to speak up its forthcoming foldable. Samsung instructed up as a lot throughout its final developer convention — and for good measure, the invite additionally sported a big crease down the center. The S10, nonetheless, will nearly actually be the true star of the present.

And in typical Samsung style, the brand new flagship has been leaking out like loopy since late final 12 months. By now, it appears, we’ve seen handset from each conceivable angle. So right here’s what we all know — or, what we predict we all know, at the very least.

For starters, Samsung is skipping the notch altogether, leaping straight from skinny prime bezel to pinhole cutout — what the corporate referred to as its “Infinity O” show. It’s kind of the identical because the one discovered on the not too long ago revealed Galaxy A9 Professional. The S10+, in the meantime, will function an rectangular model of gap punch, seemingly in an effort to embrace a second front-facing digicam.

Curiously, there are believed to be three S10 fashions set to be introduced on the 20th. You’ve bought your normal S10 (6.1-inch), the S10 Plus (6.Four-inch) and a funds model (5.Eight-inch), which can be one thing akin to Samsung’s tackle the iPhone XR. Amongst different issues, the product could also be devoid of the curved screens which have turn into a mainstay for the Galaxy line.

With Samsung’s Notice woes nicely within the rearview mirror, the corporate is reportedly amping as much as as soon as once more increase the battery life, with the S10 sporting a three,100mAh and the Plus carrying a whopping Four,100mAh. Large if true.

Much less shocking is the inclusion of the Snapdragon 855 — that’s going to energy virtually each non-iPhone flagship this 12 months. Ditto for Android Pie. 5G is way much less sure, nonetheless. Whereas it’s true that Samsung has already introduced that not one however two handset will arrive from the corporate sporting the next-gen mobile tech, we are able to’t say for positive whether or not the S10 can be amongst them.

That stated, rumors a couple of Galaxy S10 X sporting the tech aren’t out of the true of chance. That appears extra doubtless than Samsung shoehorning it into the bottom mannequin. In any case, 5G gained’t be hitting a saturation level this 12 months. That would deliver the variety of S10 fashions as much as 4. 

Equally, rumors across the headphone jack are far and wide. The newest photographs, nonetheless, appear to verify that Samsung’s staying placed on that one, steadfastly remaining one of many final flagships to sport the as soon as ubiquitous port.
