South Korean tech behemoth Samsung is expected to unveil its flagship smartphone, the Samsung Galaxy S10, in the first half of 2019. Now, while this sounds business as usual for the company, the pressure is as high as ever as the handset coincides with the firm's 10th-anniversary celebration of the iconic Galaxy S lineup. As it goes, all eyes are now fixated on this next premium iteration.
These tech onlookers won't have to worry as Samsung is clearly on all fours, throwing in all the latest and cutting-edge features on the Samsung Galaxy S10. Latest reports indicate that the upcoming smartphone will be introduced in three variations: the Samsung Galaxy S10 Standard Edition, the Samsung Galaxy S10, and the Samsung Galaxy S10+. In addition, Samsung plans to introduce the series as the company's first 5G network.
Codenamed as "Beyond," the Samsung Galaxy S10 lives up to its epithet. Accordingly, the next flagship series will go bigger and larger by the inch. Samsung intends to launch the lineup in three screen sizes: 5.8 inches, 6.2 inches, and 6.44 inches. It is speculated that the 5.8-inch variant will come with a traditional, straight-screen display while the 6.2-inch and the 6.44-inch variants are expected to sport Samsung's classic full-view curved-screen design.
The three variants of the Samsung Galaxy S10 are all speculated to be powered by the world's first Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 chipset. At their photography front, the three versions will also vary. Notably, the 6.4-inch variant will come bearing an all-new three-camera setup. One of these cameras should come with an ultra-wide lens, with a 12-megapixel and 13MP sensor in tow.
The security feature of the Samsung Galaxy S10 is also expected to get some modifications. It's rumored that the 5.8-inch version will come with Sony-like fingerprint placement, which will be mounted right on its side. The 6.2-inch and the 6.44-inch variants, on the other hand, are likely to sport a 3D face recognition technology along with an ultrasonic fingerprint technology.
All the three models of the Samsung Galaxy S10 are expected to debut at the World Mobile Congress in 2019.
