Samsung Galaxy S10 Release Date, Specs, Features: Will the Handset Really Feature 5G Connectivity?

The Galaxy Note 9 will be released on Aug. 24 and it’s expected to be one of the best smartphones on the market this year. However, some fans are underwhelmed by how Samsung designed the new phone as it’s closely similar to the appearance of the Samsung Galaxy S9. But it seems the South Korean company is saving all of its eye-popping feature for its upcoming Samsung Galaxy S10.

Samsung’s sale has been lackluster in 2018 due to its approach in handling the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ series. This was so much so that it’s expected to be the worst-selling S generation since 2012. The company means to change all that when the Samsung Galaxy S10 is released as the phone is creating a lot of noise already months before its unveiling.

What consumers are excited about is the triple camera setup of the Samsung Galaxy S10, BGR reported. The smartphone’s snapper has been reportedly outfitted with a 12MP wide-angle camera, a 13MP telephoto camera with 3x magnification, and a 16MP super wide-angle camera, the widest field of view ever seen on a Galaxy S phone as it has a 123-degree angle.

The Samsung Galaxy S10 will also have an under-the-screen fingerprint sensor using ultrasonic technology, the first of its kind on any smartphone on the market. The company said that it opted to deviate from optical sensors as they are somewhat unreliable, something that Samsung is trying to avoid since it wants to make a good impression on worldwide consumers.

The South Korean-based firm also redesigned the display so that it has an all-screen forward display, as well as a 93 percent or higher screen-to-body ratio. However, the Samsung Galaxy S10 will not have 5G connectivity, which would’ve rivaled Wi-Fi speeds.

This information was confirmed by Samsung Mobile’s CEO DJ Koh. Speaking to the media, Koh said that the Samsung Galaxy S10 will not be the first flagship of the company to be outfitted with a 5G connectivity.

That feature will likely be given to the market’s first-ever foldable phone, the Galaxy F, although that’s still a speculation at this point. The Samsung Galaxy S10 is expected to be unveiled in the first quarter of 2019.
