5G smartphones are around the corner even though 5G networks are a rare sight at the moment.
OnePlus hinted at a 5G smartphone but it will be costlier thanks to the new technology. Samsung is the other company looking to beat OnePlus to the punch and may launch its first 5G smartphone alongside the Galaxy S10. In fact, it will be one of the three models that will be announced next month.
Having said that, Korean websites have reported that the device will be called the Galaxy S10 X and that Samsung is going to throw everything at the upcoming device.
It's obvious that the 5G functionally adds to the cost of the smartphone, however, it's the other specs that are getting us excited.
Basically, whatever you have heard about the Galaxy S10, multiply it by tenfold.
The 5G smartphone is also expected to be called the Galaxy S10 X is rumoured to have at least 10 GB of RAM or even 12 GB of RAM.
In terms of storage, the smartphone is expected to have 1TB storage and that's without a microSD. In terms of cameras, the Galaxy S10 X is expected to have a quad camera setup and will be backed by two selfie cameras.
The smartphone in question is also expected to have a larger battery than ever before i.e. 5,000 mAh battery.
In terms of display, the smartphone will sport a 6.7-inch Super AMOLED screen and will have an in-display fingerprint sensor.
All of these specifications are expected to drive up the price and will probably cost a bomb.
However, Samsung will be launching other models across different price tiers with the Galaxy S10 Lite, Galaxy S10, and Galaxy S10+. These devices are expected to cost anywhere from $715 (Rs 50,689) to $1,400 (Rs 99,000).
As for the launch dates, Samsung will announce these smartphones on February 20th and the launch will follow shortly after. The 4G devices are expected to go on sale by March 8th while the exclusive 5G Galaxy S10 X will launch on March 29.
