Samsung’s quarterly year reports have shown that Galaxy S9 didn’t sell as many units as expected. This doesn’t mean that Galaxy S9 was a flop, just that it didn’t live to the expectations of Samsung and this is why the South Korean based tech giant is already looking towards “the next big thing”. Samsung CEO DJ Kohkept dropped hints throughout multiple interviews that Galaxy S10 will change the way people think about the “ideal smartphone” and numerous leaks have shown that Samsung is indeed dreaming big.
Samsung is one of the biggest names in the tech industry and therefore, it should come as no surprise that all tech forums are speculating about what kind of unique features and powerful hardware performances Galaxy S10 will bring to the tablet. With that said, we rounded up the most reliable Galaxy S10 leaks and rumors in order to paint a picture of what the next-generation Samsung flagship smartphone is going to look like.
Triple Camera Setup
The first thing that we are going to start with is the fact that Galaxy S10 is expected to feature a triple camera setup. LG was the first company to introduce this feature and it looks like Samsung wants to do the same. Adding three cameras to Galaxy S10 will definitely give the smartphone an advantage over its competitors since Samsung can use super wide and telephoto lenses to give fans multiple options when they snap pictures. While the information about Galaxy S10’s triple camera setup might be limited, it’s still an important feature that makes Galaxy S10 way better than the current Galaxy S9.
In-Display Fingerprint Scanner
Back in 2017, it seemed like Apple and Samsung were racing to see which one manages to implement an in-display fingerprint scanner. Both companies failed to do this because they came to the conclusion that this technology is not safe and that it can cause lots of problems.
Well, it seems like Samsung might have developed a special display for Galaxy S10 that will ship with an embedded fingerprint scanner. This is a nice feature to have because it will make it possible for Galaxy S10 owners to unlock their smartphones with their fingers instead of having to look directly at the selfie camera like iPhone XS owners need to do.
Hardware Power (CPU, GPU, and RAM)
Rumor has it that Galaxy S10 will be powered by an Exynos processor that features eight cores which clock at 2.7GHz. The mobile processor is also going to be bundled with a Mali-G72 MP18 graphics processing unit that ships alongside 6GB of RAM. These are all cutting-edge hardware specs, but this was to be expected since Galaxy S10 will represent the best smartphone that Samsung has to offer in 2019.
Expected Price Tag
As we previously mentioned, Galaxy S10 will hold the title of being a flagship smartphone. This means that Samsung is going to charge a premium for Galaxy S10, but just how much? Most high-end smartphones are priced around the $1,000 milestone, but we think that Samsung might decide to price Galaxy S10 at $900 so that the smartphone will be cheaper than what Apple has to offer.
From what the leaks and rumors have had to show us, Galaxy S10 is shaping up to be a powerful smartphone. Galaxy S10 will ship with all the latest hardware parts available on the market and they will be paired with unique features such as the in-display fingerprint scanner. Therefore, Galaxy S10 will definitely be a success and it will do better on the market than Galaxy S9 did.
