As the biggest rival to Apple, Samsung is in plans to flaunt its rumored new foldable smartphone along with a 5G-ready smartphone in the upcoming year with its official Galaxy S10 launch. The company’s insiders reveal these plans to Bloomberg.
Samsung notably releases two Galaxy S line-up phones every year; this has been the norm ever since the launch of the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge. However, the report from the Bloomberg states that the upcoming Galaxy S10 lineup would consist of three phones, these include – the regular 5.8-inch Galaxy S10 with the usual dual curved screen but with triple cameras on the rear. The report also states that it features an in-display fingerprint scanner and an under display front-facing camera as well. Further, there would also be a larger variant (similar to Apple iPhone XS and XS Max) but in a larger screen real estate.
The report also reveals that there’s an entry-level budget Galaxy S10 which doesn’t sport curved display but features a flat AMOLED display and most likely comes with a side-mounted fingerprint sensor. However, the camera set up on the cheaper variant is still unknown.
Lastly, the report suggests that the much anticipated foldable-screen device is codenamed as “Winner,” which has been in under development for years and will most likely show up at the event, said the report. The Korean tech giant is reportedly still in discussion about finalizing the two foldable screen prototypes, which are currently under development. Since its a foldable phone with a bendable display, it most certainly doesn’t hold an on-screen fingerprint sensor said the report.
Even though the report says the foldable phone might appear with the upcoming Galaxy phones launch next year, which would be a revolutionary leap from the world’s largest smartphone maker, there’s a hindrance as the report also stated that Samsung would be ditching the 3.5mm headphone jack as well.
