New Information About the Samsung Galaxy S10 Leaked by Insider
The upcoming Galaxy S10 line will be unveiled soon by Samsung at their UNPACKED 2019 event. With the run-up to the event starting to gather more steam, new information about the upcoming smartphones have come to the light.
Recently, a Samsung team member got to use the final version of the Galaxy S10e, Galaxy S10 and Galaxy S10+ smartphones and was impressed. The insider was kind enough to share new information about the new Galaxy S10 lineup, which will be officially unveiled on February 20 at Samsung's UNPACKED 2019 event.
The source said that the new Galaxy S10 smartphones will be sporting a new Super AMOLED display panel with 10-bit color processing capabilities, the same type of technology that's currently being used by some streaming video providers like Netflix and YouTube. It's not immediately clear what specific features will set this new display panel apart from the current-generation Galaxy S9 and Galaxy Note9 smartphones.
The Infinity-O display features a punch-hole design that houses the front-facing 10MP camera that has advanced features like optical image stabilization, 4K-resolution video recording, and Dual Pixel autofocus capabilities. The Galaxy S10+ will be kitted with a secondary front camera for depth-sensing, which will make it capable of shooting pictures with natural bokeh effect.
The Galaxy S10 will also feature an improved version of super slow-motion video recording that is capable of recording fast subjects at 0.4-0.8s vs the current version that can capture 0.2-0.4s.
The source also confirms that the Galaxy S10 and Galaxy S10+ will have an in-display fingerprint scanner, which will also have a faster response time compared to other smartphones in the market that use the same technology. It has also been confirmed that the fingerprint scanner will not occupy the lower half of the display but will be within a certain area (no specifics were given).
The 3D touch bottom, a feature present in the current-generation Galaxy smartphones, will not be present in the new Galaxy S10 smartphones, though tapping or pressing the in-display fingerprint scanner will wake the display.
The Galaxy S10+ will have a huge 4,100mAh battery pack that can last for an entire day, plus it can also serve as a wireless power bank thanks to its new reverse wireless charging feature.
The source did not mention anything about pricing or other details about the hardware, though it's said that the Samsung Galaxy S10 and S10+ will be available in the following colorways: White, Black, and Teal, while the Vivid Blue colorway will be available only in certain markets. The Galaxy S10e is rumored to also come with a Vivid Yellow colorway. All the Galaxy S10 variants will have a shimmering metallic finish (similar to the Galaxy Note9).
Stay tuned here as we will cover everything about the new Galaxy S10 smartphones in the run-up to the UNPACKED event on February 20.
