2018’s Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus are still in our minds, and people are getting their hands on one worldwide. But, the rumor mill has already turned to its successor named Samsung Galaxy S10 in Australia alongside Samsung Galaxy S10 Plus. The rumored smartphone is expected to be landed on shelves somewhere in between the first quarter of 2019 and will start its journey against Apple iPhone X and Google Pixel 3.
For now, an official launch of S10 is almost 3 months away, but a plethora of analysts have already started to speculate on what Samsung’s S10 flagship will be like – and all this came a bunch of weeks before Samsung released a super-powerful smartphone called Samsung Galaxy Note 9. We have rounded up everything we have heard so far and will update as soon as more information comes to light.
What Have We Heard?
Keeping Samsung’s all old devices in mind, Samsung Galaxy S10 is expected to arrive in 2 different options to choose from – in terms of onboard memory and RAM, of course. However, an analyst Mr. Ming-Chi Kuo has claimed that there will be 3 options that users will be able to buy of Galaxy S10. The handsets will have screen sizes of 5.8-inches, 6.1-inches, and 6.4-inches.
Another note made by Kuo is that the 2 more substantial models of Samsung will sport a fingerprint scanner embedded into their screens. The base variant will have a side-mounted fingerprint scanner whereas an upper variant will boast an on-screen fingerprint scanner.
Both options are entirely different from its predecessor (S9), putting its fingerprint scanner on the backside of the handset. Mr. Kuo further says, Samsung will aggressively promote S10’s on-screen fingerprint scanner – especially as it’s something Apple still lacks in their models. According to reports of 2017, Apple decided to add such feature in iPhone X but suddenly decided to go with Face ID.
How Many Cameras Are There?
Different Chinese and other brands have spent 2018, showing off how much cameras a brand can cram into their devices. Apple and Samsung initially offered 2 rear camera. Later, Huawei put 3 cameras outback of its Huawei P20 Pro and now Samsung is planning to fit five cameras on Galaxy S10.
Based on a report from “The Bell,” Samsung is adding a total of 3 cameras on the back and 2 on the front. This configuration will seemingly see the same 12MP dual-lens setup of S9+ joined by a 16MP Ultra-wide-angle lens. It’s been rumored that an additional 6th camera will also appear out front for improved selfies.
It’s believed that 5G Technology won’t be available for an audience until sometime in 2020, which makes Samsung putting that Technology on a smartphone in early 2019 quite a surprise. We should take it as a pinch of salt now as reign on our 5G expectations for another year.
How Much Will Galaxy S10 Cost?
Samsung Galaxy S10 Price in Australia won’t be less than the launched price of Samsung Galaxy S9. However, it the reports of a smaller 5.8-inches model are accurate, it won’t leave a dent in your wallet then. As far as a larger model price is concerned, it’s expected to set users back around AU$900-1200 with the most amount of onboard memory.
