Samsung has been capturing a huge share of the market with its iconic Galaxy S series of smartphones for a very long time. 2019 will mark the 10th year anniversary for the series and perhaps Samsung is looking to make it memorable. Unfortunately, the only things known about the upcoming device are all in the form of leaks. The company hasn’t confirmed anything and rightly so since the device is still a few months away from being unveiled. A new leak has surfaced and this one points to a possible date for its unveiling. Rumour has it that the Galaxy S10 may be unveiled at World Mobile Congress 2019 (MWC 2019).
Samsung Galaxy S10 Rumoured To Be Unveiled At MWC 2019
Korean media news has hinted that the first appearance which the Galaxy S10 will make will be at MWC 2019 which is expected to take place on the 25th and 26th of February. This isn’t really uncommon considering the fact that Samsung has launched its Galaxy S7 and S8 smartphones at MWCs. MWC has always been known as a platform which has seen the rise of numerous memorable smartphones. Perhaps the upcoming Galaxy S10 could meet with a similar fate.
The Samsung Galaxy S10 bears the codename ‘Beyond’ and is rumoured to be launched in three different variants. In all likelihood, Samsung is looking to make it big with its Galaxy S10 just as Apple did with the release of its iPhone X. February 2019 seems like the perfect time for Samsung to get back on its high horse and rider its way to the top of the smartphone market. The company will definitely steal the spotlight given the timing of its unveiling. This way it would have avoided the craze over the OnePlus 6T and the Google Pixel 3 smartphones.
Samsung Galaxy S10 Rumoured To Arrive In Three Variants
The Samsung Galaxy S10 may feature one of the most sought-after features of smartphones in 2018, an in-display fingerprint sensor. It isn’t surprising that Samsung will include this given the fact that its devices like the OnePlus 6T also have the same. While all three models will basically differ in terms of memory and storage configurations, they are all likely to be powered by the same SoC. The Galaxy S10 will be driven by the Exynos 9820 SoC which is rumoured to have a dedicated NPU integrated into it. This NPU will be the second gen NPU and will most likely result in performance improvements over the previous generation.
Speaking of different variants. The base model is likely to sport a 5.8-inch straight screen and is similar to what Apple did with its iPhone XR. The base variant will have a single rear camera and side-mounted fingerprint sensor. Its bigger brother is speculated to have a 5.8-inch curved screen with a triple-rear camera setup. This model will also feature an in-display fingerprint sensor. The last of the lot and the one which ranks at the top of the three models will most likely be the Galaxy S10 Plus. The device is definitely going to have the largest screen with its size being 6.4-inches. Rumour has it that this variant will be 5G enabled.
These are all based on rumours and should be taken with a grain of salt. However, if these leaks are to be believed, the Galaxy S10 is definitely shaping up to be one promising smartphone!
