  1. A user took to a South Korean website, to post images of his Galaxy S10 5G model that allegedly ignited and exploded. Based on a rough translation, the user took his damaged phone to the service centre but was denied an exchange or a refund for his damaged phone. These images below clearly show how much damage the Galaxy S10 sustained from the fire. © Naver When the device caught fire in his hand, the user threw away the smartphone which resulted in further damage on the phone, according to the forum post. This is not the first time a Samsung Galaxy smartphone has suffered an issue where it would explode. Three years ago, the Galaxy Note 7 suffered a similar fate due to a faulty battery or due to packing the battery with no extra room. Samsung has commented on this incident with a statement: © Naver "We conducted various tests, including X-rays, on the product. The analysis confirmed that there were strong marks of stamping. The strong shock damaged the battery, causing the fire. There are no defects in the product.” It is worthy to note that this may have been caused due to the user's error as there is evidence of physical damage. There is no way to verify whether the user is telling the truth or whether it was caused because of prior physical damage. Source: naver.com
  2. The Galaxy S10, S10 Plus and S10e are now finally available to buy in India and we had called it one of the best flagship smartphones in our review. The smartphone has an updated design, however, there are some nifty features that make the S10 one of the most dependable flagship smartphones in 2019. It has a phenomenal camera, supports reverse wireless charging and has one of the most beautiful screens on a smartphone ever. We've been using the smartphone for a few weeks and here are some of our favourite features on the Galaxy S10 that make it stand out from the crowd. The Dynamic Display Is Awesome © MensXP/Akshay Bhalla We all know Samsung makes some of the best displays out there and even Apple uses their display tech on the flagship iPhones. The Galaxy S10 has a dynamic AMOLED display that has been voted as the best screen on a smartphone by DisplayMate. You can read all about Samsung's display here. The Galaxy S10 and S10 Plus have 6.1 and 6.4-inch AMOLED screens respectively and support HDR10+ content for users who like to consume videos. The dynamic range of the screen is exceptional and makes viewing images/content an awesome experience. Massive Storage Options © Samsung No longer will you have to worry about deleting your favourite images, videos or applications. Samsung now offers the Galaxy S10 smartphones in various storage options, one of them having 1TB of internal storage. What's cool is that the Galaxy S10 also supports storage expansion of up to 512 GB as it has microSDXC support. If you want to know more about Samsung and how the company has managed to support high storage options, you can read all about it here. Awesome Primary Cameras © MensXP/Akshay Bhalla The Samsung Galaxy S10 and S10 Plus come with a triple primary camera setup that consists of an optically stabilised 12-megapixel main sensor with a dual aperture that can switch between f/1.5 for night shots and f/2.4 for the day. The second sensor is an ultra-wide 16-megapixel f/2.2 sensor that lets you capture more field of view and lastly a stabilised 12-megapixel telephoto sensor. It comes with awesome portrait effects such as colour spin, colour point and others in the 'Live Focus' mode. The wide-angle sensor is also a dream to work with as it has a field of view of 77Ë. When it comes to video, the Galaxy S10/S10 Plus can capture 4K UD videos with the selfie camera, a perfect feature for video bloggers. It also uses the Ultra Wide sensor and software to give your steady videos similar to action cameras like GoPro. The Galaxy S10 can also record videos with Dynamic Tone Mapping for accurate colours and also supports richer colour contrast of HDR10+ in recordings. PowerShare © Samsung The Galaxy S10/S10 Plus now supports reverse wireless charging similar to what we've already seen on the Huawei Mate 20 Pro. It can charge other smartphones and even the Galaxy Buds. One has to simply put any Qi-compatible device and the S10 will do the rest.
  3. The Galaxy S10 and S10 Plus are two solid smartphones that have incredible displays. Samsung's new flagship sports its 'Infinity-O' display and it has finally been tested by the experts at DisplayMate. The Galaxy S10 and S10 Plus have 6.1 and 6.4-inch AMOLED screens respectively and support HDR10+ content for users who like to consume videos. © MensXP/Akshay Bhalla OLED displays have come a long way in terms of advancement and are now the staple display choice for premium flagship phones. Initially, it had a weird start due to technical issues such as pixel layout problems and colour representation, however, Samsung has perfected the technology to make it the number AMOLED manufacturer in the world. Hence, it's natural that Samsung would use their best display on its latest device. Galaxy S10/S10 Plus has earned the highest grade from DisplayMate i.e. an A+. The experts go on to say that the Galaxy S10's display "matches or sets over a dozen new smartphone display performance records", including a "high brightness mode that is up to 17% brighter (1,215 nits) than the Galaxy S9.” © MensXP/Akshay Bhalla DisplayMate's reviewer Dr Raymond M. Soneira called Samsung's OLED "the most colour accurate display we have ever measured”. He goes on to explain that the device was able to produce lifelike colours. The smartphone performed well even in the colour accuracy department as he describes it as "visually indistinguishable from perfect, and almost certainly considerably better than your existing smartphone, living room HDTV, tablet, laptop, and computer monitor.” © MensXP/Akshay Bhalla DisplayMate also details that the Galaxy S10 has also improved upon other salient features such as better viewing angles, display power efficiency and blue light spectrum. DisplayMate is considered the world's leading authority on testing screen quality and you can read the entire report here. The website may look like something straight from the 90s, however, be rest assured that DisplayMate is a trusted source for everything related to screens. To get to know a more detailed analysis of the Galaxy S10 Plus, you can read our review here. Source: DisplayMate
  4. Samsung's new Galaxy S series flagship phones, as we all know, carry a hefty price tag. In India, you'll be shelling out as much as INR 1,17,900 for a top of the line variant of the Galaxy S10 Plus. The base variant of the Galaxy S10 Plus, on the other hand, is priced at INR 73,900. But just how much does it cost Samsung to make a unit of this phone? Turns out, not much. © YouTube The folks over at Tech Insights investigated a Korean Exynos-powered base variant of the Galaxy S10 Plus and estimated that it would cost Samsung only $420 (~INR 30,000) to manufacture a unit. The $420 price tag, in case you are wondering, is around 42-per cent of the phone's retail price tag of $999. If you take a closer look at the material cost break-up, the phone's 6.4-inch Super AMOLED panel is the most expensive component of the phone, costing as much as $86.50. Samsung is spending around $80 for the chipset and modems, whereas the S10 Plus' camera and memory come in at around $50 each. You can find the detailed component breakdown below - © Tech Insights The $420 price tag represents an increase of around $40 over last year's Galaxy S9 Plus (64GB). The display cost of the Galaxy S10 Plus is up by just $9 over the last year's variant despite having a punch-hole. Interestingly, the new Exynos 9820 processor actually costs $9 less to produce than the Exynos 9810 that powered the Galaxy S9 Plus. It would be interesting to see how much the Snapdragon 855 SoC variant of the Galaxy S10 Plus would cost though. It is, however, worth pointing out that the component prices mentioned above are only estimates, and there could be a lot of other factors that would affect the retail price. There are a ton of other things like marketing cost, R&D, shipping, and more that needs to be considered as well. But overall, it is safe to say that the manufacturing cost of the Galaxy S10 Plus is on par with other Samsung flagships. Source: Tech Insights
  5. Every year, Samsung starts off the year with a bang when it comes to flagship Android smartphones and the Galaxy S10 Plus is no exception. It's the ambitious attempt by Samsung to sway customers towards their products and the Galaxy S10 Plus is one of those devices. Last year, Samsung brought incremental upgrades to the Galaxy S9/S9 Plus from its predecessor which left many of their fans unimpressed. However, the Galaxy S10 Plus is a whole different story as it boasts quite a few upgrades in almost category. The Galaxy S10 Plus has a new 6.-4inch type of screen called the 'Infinity-O display', has a total of five cameras and the world's first ultrasonic fingerprint sensor. Unlike the U.S./Chinese version, the Indian unit is powered by Samsung's own Exynos 9820 chipset and is coupled with various RAM configurations. It comes in three stunning “prism” colours and starts from Rs 73,900 for the 8GB RAM/128GB internal storage variant. We've been using this variant for a few weeks and here's our review to determine whether it's worth the price tag: Design & Display Android smartphones are known to be bold and adventurous when it comes to experimentation and the end result is almost always awesome. Android smartphone companies are trying to experiment with displays to deliver an all-screen phone with various design innovations. Samsung chose to implement its 'Infinity-O' display that offers almost an edge-to-edge screen experience. The S10 Plus almost has zero bezels with the exception of a narrow chin. The dual-selfie camera hole on the display has been carved out using lasers giving it a flush look and achieving a near edge-to-edge display experience at the same time. Having said that, when you first use the Galaxy S10 Plus for watching video content, the holes are a bit distracting until you get used to it. This was true when we reviewed the Honor View 20 and it remains the same as Samsung's offering. However, if you want to hide the holes, you can always implement clever wallpapers like the ones we've mentioned here. The Galaxy S10 Plus is also not a small smartphone that can be used by one hand. It measures 6.2 x 2.91 x 0.3 and needs to be operated with two hands unless you have long fingers. The Galaxy S10 Plus also has a slight curve in the design which can result in accidental touches. © MensXP/Akshay Bhalla We've been using the Prism White variant of the Galaxy S10 Plus and it is one of the most beautiful colours we've seen on a smartphone. It changes colour whenever the smartphone catches the light and gives off a very regal vibe when viewed from afar. The Galaxy S10 Plus also comes in a ceramic finish (it's more expensive) which feels more durable than the all-glass design. © MensXP/Akshay Bhalla In terms of display quality, the Galaxy S10 Plus has a quad HD+ Dynamic AMOLED display which has been termed as the best display on a smartphone yet. It has a wider colour gamut and dynamic tone mapping that enhances colours and brightness. The Galaxy S10 Plus also has a brightness level of 624 nits, highest on any smartphone yet. For reference, the iPhone XS Max has a brightness level of 603 nits. The display itself is one of the best you can find on a smartphone to watch video content on Netflix or Amazon Prime. It supports HDR10+ playback which is probably the highest quality you can get in videos when it comes to dynamic range. The Galaxy S10 Plus also has stereo speakers which are powerful enough to accentuate the experience further as it is powerful, clear and loud. The speakers have rich audio and a robust sound overall. Performance Our Galaxy S10 Plus unit is powered by Samsung's Exynos 9820 chipset and is coupled with 6GB of RAM. Having said that, the Exynos 9820 chipset is not as fast as Qualcomm's Snapdragon 855 chipset which you can find on a U.S. version of the smartphone. The Snapdragon 855 chipset is based on TSMC's 7nm process, whereas the Exynos 9820 is based on an 8nm LPP FinFET process. Regardless, the Exynos 9820 processor works like a beast and showed some impressive results in benchmark scores. © MensXP/Akshay Bhalla We also played games like Asphalt 9 and PUBG Mobile to check it's overall gaming performance. The Galaxy S10 Plus was able to run both games in the highest settings without any drops in FPS. Having said that, we did see the Galaxy S10 Plus overheat a bit right under the camera module at the back. On Geekbench 4, which measures overall performance, the S10 Plus turned in a multi-core score of 10,146, which beats the OnePlus 6T (8,972) and Pixel 3 (7,316). © MensXP/Akshay Bhalla Even though the graphics are at par with other Android flagship devices, the Exynos version of the Galaxy S10 Plus underperformed when it comes to GPU benchmark scores. It managed to score 4265 on 3DMark Sling Shot Extreme score (OpenGL ES 3.1 test). In fact, the iPhone XS, Pixel 3 and the OnePlus 6T pulled ahead in this department. Battery Life When it comes to battery life of the Galaxy S10 Plus, the performance was slightly above average as it could not last longer than a full day of charge. Sometimes, the Galaxy S10 Plus would not even survive the full day depending on our usage. Keep in mind, we were testing an Exynos version and the battery life performance may differ for a Qualcomm version. We used the Galaxy S10 Plus for navigation, mild gaming, 4G LTE web browsing, music/video streaming and reading comic books. We had almost 4 hours 30 minutes of screen on time and the smartphone could last only a day and then some. This is with light usage which was not impressive considering the Galaxy S10 Plus has a 4,100 mAh battery. You can always switch the display to Full HD+ in order to conserve more battery life however QHD+ is so much better for watching videos which obviously sacrificed battery life. © MensXP/Akshay Bhalla The Galaxy S10 Plus also has reverse charging if you want to charge any of your accessories or even second wireless charging supported smartphone. It's called 'PowerShare' and it turns the back of the S10 Plus into a charging mat. The PowerShare feature works great to charge accessories like a smartwatch and the great part is that the smartphone automatically disables the feature once your battery level falls to 30 per cent. Biometrics © MensXP/Akshay Bhalla This is the first time Samsung has included an in-display fingerprint sensor on a smartphone and it works a little different from what you may have seen before. It is embedded right into the screen and is fast to set up. You simply have to hold your finger in the specific area of the screen and it unlocks quite fast. Sure, it isn't as fast as a traditional fingering sensor, however, it does work when we need it to. It comes in handy in dark environments as the facial recognition on the Galaxy S10 Plus isn't as accurate. Having said that, during the day when facial recognition works, it is quite fast and you won't end up using the fingerprint scanner anyway. In terms of accuracy, there were a few instances when fingerprints weren't being read however overall the ultra-sonic sensor was consistent and accurate when scanning thumbs. Camera © MensXP/Akshay Bhalla The Galaxy S10 Plus has a triple-camera setup at the back and dual selfie camera at the front. The rear setup has an optically stabilised 12-megapixel main sensor with a dual aperture that can switch between f/1.5 for night shots and f/2.4 for the day. The second sensor is an ultra-wide 16-megapixel f/2.2 sensor that lets you capture more field of view and lastly a stabilised 12-megapixel telephoto sensor. The wide-angle camera lens works similar to what we have seen on the Huawei Mate 20 Pro and other Samsung phones. You can zoom out and capture a wider field of view and somewhat get a fish-eye effect. It's a great lens to use, especially if you like to capture a lot of landscapes and environments. Having said that, the ultra-wide lens did give off some grain in low-light which is manageable by editing the images in third-party software. The portrait mode is known as “Live Focus” is also a dream to work with as it accurately blurs the background on objects and even pets. In fact, our favourite lighting option in 'Live Focus' mode is the “Colour Point” mode which basically turns the background into monochrome. The triple camera also does a great job of utilising HDR which you can see in one of our samples below. It was able to capture the blue sky and the definition of the clouds accurately. Having said that, we would have loved to see a dedicated night mode similar to what we see on the Pixel 3 and even budget Android phones like the Redmi Note 7 Pro. © MensXP/Akshay Bhalla The front cameras also feature dual-lens setup which basically lets you take normal or wide-angle selfies. You can even use the same portrait mode effect like “Colour Point” while using the selfie camera. It does a great job at blurring the background and is at par with other flagship smartphones. Here are a few camera samples that you can review below: View this post on Instagram Pictures shot using the #GalaxyS10Plus. I was quite satisfied with the picture quality, especially the "Colour Point" feature in the portrait mode. Wide-angle also does a decent job. #Technology #GalaxyS10 #tech #Gadgets #Smartphones #techie #samsung A post shared by Akshay Bhalla (@editorinchief) on Mar 4, 2019 at 8:45am PST The Final Say If you are looking for a powerful Android smartphone that can tick almost every box, the Galaxy S10 Plus is a great purchase you can consider. It has one of the best screens on a smartphone and takes some awesome pictures. It even supports HDR10+ content which is a plus if you like to watch movies on-the-go. Having said that, we did find the Galaxy S10 Plus lacking in the battery life department which we are sure can be fixed in a future OTA update. Overall, the Galaxy S10 Plus is very familiar to what we've seen before but at the same time makes huge leaps with various new features.
  6. The Samsung Galaxy S10E was announced two days ago in San Francisco and its time for the smartphone to debut in India.

  7. We've already seen a ton of leaks in the last few weeks about the Galaxy S10 and the wait is finally coming to an end. Samsung has announced the launch of S10 today at its Unpacked event in San Francisco. This year's launch is extremely important for the company since the S-series was launched exactly 10 years ago. In the last decade, the S-lineup has played a pivotal role in making Samsung one of the largest smartphone makers in the world. The series has successfully defeated LG, HTC, Sony, and even Google's offerings in the past. To make things even more interesting, Samsung has launched three variants of the phone instead of the usual duo. The S10 is available in three options: the S10e, S10, and S10+. The S10e is being targeted as a slightly cheaper variant of the flagship and it incorporates a majority of the elder sibling's offerings. The S10 is the main flagbearer and lastly, the S10+ has a few more power features along with a larger display. The flagship smartphone Galaxy S10 has a 6.1-inch AMOLED display with a punch-hole front camera that Samsung calls Infinity-O. The proximity and ambient light sensor are now located behind the display. Instead of Samsung Experience UI, the new S10 ships with a new skin called One UI. It is built around focus blocks and has segregated viewing to provide more productivity options and use maximum area of the display. Under the hood is an Exynos 9820 (Snapdragon 855 in the US) processor, coupled along with 8GB RAM and 128GB internal storage. At the rear is a triple camera setup consisting of a 16-megapixel ultra-wide lens, 12-megapixel dual aperture sensor with optical image stabilization, and a 12-megapixel telephoto camera. On the front is a single "dual-pixel" sensor that is located inside the display punch-hole. The software is capable of recognising 30 scenes and adjusts the capturing settings accordingly. For authentication, Samsung is now relying on an in-display fingerprint scanner as well as face unlock. Backing these internals is a 3400mAh battery and the company has added a host of new charging features. This includes wireless PowerShare that can reverse charge another device. In simpler words, the phone can be used as a portable power bank to wirelessly charge compatible accessories like Galaxy Watch and Galaxy Buds. It'll be available in Prism White and Prism Black. Coming to the S10e, it houses the same processor as the S10 along with 6GB RAM and a slightly smaller 5.8-inch AMOLED display. Even the battery has been reduced down to 3100mAh and it doesn't get the 12-megapixel telephoto lens on the rear. The S10e will be available in Prism White colour only. The S10+, on the other hand, gets a 6.4-inch AMOLED display and has a dual camera set up on the front in a wider punch-hole. Even the battery has been boosted to 4100mAh and will be available in an additional Prism Green colour. It shares the same processor, but gets two variants in memory: 8GB+128GB and 12GB+1TB (yes, 1 T!). The 1TB storage variant is available in Ceramic Black colour option. Samsung has also announced the availability of Galaxy Ecosystem, and it consists of Galaxy Buds, Wireless Combo Charge power bank, and Wireless Charger Duo (charger). The brand is also partnering with Marvel and selling "Galaxy Friends" covers that have a design of Iron Man, Spiderman, Captain America, and the Avengers. Galaxy S10, Galaxy S10+ and Galaxy S10e will be available in Prism White, Prism Black, Prism Blue and Flamingo Pink. Galaxy S10+ will also be available in two premium Ceramic models: Ceramic Black and Ceramic White. Preorders for the Galaxy S10, Galaxy S10+ and Galaxy S10e begin tomorrow, February 21, 2019. Pricing starts at $899.99 for Galaxy S10, $999.00 for Galaxy S10+ and $749.99 for Galaxy S10e. India pricing and availability will be known soon.

  9. Seems like Samsung Galaxy S10 will keep leaking more details about its capabilities every week and we couldn't be more happy about it. In fact, a major new leaked image today shows off Samsung's new phone with a feature that will get smartphone and audio fans excited. © OnLeaks_Twitter This leaked image shows off the Galaxy S10 in a charging case which also has the new Samsung Galaxy Buds sitting on its back. Basically, the charging case of the earbuds is being charged by the smartphone as the Galaxy S10 is now almost confirmed to support reverse wireless charging. The only other smartphone that has this feature is the Huawei Mate 20 Pro and it works like a charm. It's probably the smartest incorporation of reverse wireless charging we've seen as it solves the problem of charging your earbuds when on the move. The reverse charging feature can, of course, be used to charge other smartphones. However, this is probably the most logical and obvious incorporation we've seen. © Twitter Of course, this information is based on a leaked image and can only be confirmed when Samsung makes it official at its Unpacked event later this month. A previous leak also suggests that the Samsung Galaxy S10 will have support for an in-display fingerprint sensor and you can read about its details here. We know almost everything about the Samsung Galaxy S10 and you can read our roundup about the smartphone here Main Image for representation purposes only*
  10. The Samsung Galaxy S10 launch is scheduled for February 20th 2019 and we pretty much know everything about the phone right now. There have been numerous CAD leaks, along with reports on the alleged specifications. But thanks to MKBHD, we're getting a first-hand look at a dummy S10 model that is used by the case or cover makers to closely work with. There are going to be three variants of the S10 this year, the flagship S10, the S10+, and a slightly cheaper S10e. Samsung has been launching two variants of the S-series flagship for quite some time, and now the company wants to lure buyers with a slightly cheaper option that carries flagship enough feature, at a lighter price. Considering the success of the iPhone XR, the S10e seems to be a safe bet right now. We hope it won't cannibalise sales of the elder sibling, just like the cheaper iPhone did. The S10 will have a 6.1-inch display with a 3500mAh battery, while the S10+ shall sport a 6.44-inch display with a 4000mAh battery. The S10e is reported to have a slightly smaller 5.8-inch screen, and maybe even a smaller battery. © YouTube/MKBHD The phone has a signature Samsung design, consisting of metal and glass. The glass back is obviously a fingerprint magnet, and the front is strikingly similar to the previous iterations. The bezels are ultra slim, and the chin has been slightly cut down as well. On the left is a secondary utility button, basically a dedicated button for Bixby smart assistant. The first thing you'll notice about the S10 and S10+ is its camera array. Both sport triple lens setup on the rear, while the S10 has a single front camera. The S10+ gets a dual camera setup on the front, and all the front sensors are housed in a punch-hole design. We've already seen this technology in action with the A8s, and Samsung likes to call it the Infinity-O display. © YouTube/MKBHD The physical fingerprint sensor is no-where to be seen and we're assuming it'll be now located under the display. We've already seen this technology in action with the multiple phones like the Vivo NEX and OnePlus 6T. Lastly, the headphone jack is located on the bottom, and Samsung isn't yet forcing us to move on. This shall be the 10th anniversary of the S-series smartphones, and to make things even more interesting, Samsung could launch an S10+ variant with 1TB of internal storage. However, these are just pre-launch rumours and reports, and we'd ask you to take 'em with a pinch of salt since the final product could definitely vary.
  11. Following the first leak of the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S10 a few weeks ago, more images have surfaced of the flagship and details about the phone are slowly getting clearer. We're just a month away from the launch but now high-quality photos of the device have popped up online, thanks to the German blog AllAboutSamsung. We've seen numerous render leaks and the prototypes come very close to them. The bezels have been snipped even further and there are radical changes on the back as well as the front. Samsung was the only mainstream brand to not embrace the notch last year and it intends to continue the same for its flagship. © AllAboutSamsung Instead of a notch, Samsung is embedding a punch-hole camera on the front. The “Infinity-O” hole-punch display, as they're officially called, first showed up in Samsung's A8 phones, which were only released in China. What we are looking at here are the prototypes for the 6.1-inch Samsung Galaxy S10 and 6.4-inch Galaxy S10+ having a different punch-hole cut-out. The S10+ has a dual front-facing camera setup, while the S10 has a singular module. The back of the phone has a huge camera arrangement, with three lenses and LED flash and Samsung's typical PPG heart rate sensor. It's surprising that even the smaller S10 has three cameras, given that the S9+ has two cameras compared to the S9's single camera. It's possible Samsung could go with a dual camera setup on the S10 Lite variant. © AllAboutSamsung Lastly, the bottom of the phone has a USB-C charging port along with a 3.5mm headphone jack. This'll make Samsung among the few who still find space to house the ancient port and many users out there are going to be extremely happy about it. For now, we've seen the ceramic black and ceramic white colour options and rumours suggest we'll be seeing more options at launch. A few reports earlier in the week also mentioned the new phones will come with a Samsung Blockchain Keystore app. Ethereum has been listed as a supported cryptocurrency and it will have support for Bitcoin, Ethereum-derived token ERC20 and Bitcoin Cash as well at launch. © Twitter / VenyaGeskin1 The Galaxy S10 line will be unveiled in San Francisco on February 20th, which is less than a month away. There have also been leaks suggesting the price of the phones and Samsung is trying its level best to keep them consistent with last year's offerings. What are your thoughts on the initial design of the phone?
  12. The Galaxy S10+ is expected to launch soon. However, we've previously seen various leaks and renders that suggested its design. It was rumoured to have a large Infinity-O display with a wide cutout for front-facing cameras. The cut out was in the shape of a pill that suggested it would sport a dual front-facing camera setup. It seems like the rumours may have been true all along as it was spotted in the wild and we finally have a real-life image. © Slashleaks The image was posted on Slashleaks where the alleged smartphone was being used in a bus. The image is not as sharp as we would like it but it still gives away quite a few details. We can see on the top right corner of the screen where the pill-shaped dual camera setup is present. The bezels have also been reduced considerably as we can see the display covers most of the front. © Twitter/VenyaGeskin1 We've already seen a punch-hole design on the Honor View 20; however, it would be interesting to see if Samsung's front-facing camera actually works in the favour of the user. It could be a bit more intrusive. However, we can only know that once we use the device for ourselves. Previous rumours have suggested that the Galaxy S10 and S10 E will have a similar punch-hole camera setup as renders have shown a smaller cutout. The Galaxy S10+ is also said to have a 4,000 mAh battery just like the Galaxy Note 9. © Twitter/Evan Blass The launch date for these phones have already been confirmed and will launch on February 20th in San Francisco. The company has decided to skip the Mobile World Conference and it is unlikely that we will see any other major announcements from the South Korean giant that week. It's not the first time Samsung has skipped the conference, as in 2017, Samsung unveiled the Galaxy S8 at a separate event in March. The smartphones are also rumoured to have an in-display fingerprint sensor and a headphone jack. If you want to know more about the upcoming smartphones you can always check out our previous coverage here. Samsung is also expected to launch the first 5G phone alongside the Galaxy S10 and is expected to have souped-up specifications as well. You can read all about Samsung's 5G phone here.
  13. 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. © Twitter 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. © Twitter 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. © Twitter 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.
  14. Samsung is all set to launch its next flagship smartphone that will likely be called the Galaxy S10. It will debut a week ahead of MWC on February 20th. The invites for the 'Unpacked' event have been sent out to media and it will take place at the Bill Graham Civic Auditorium in San Francisco. © Samsung The company has decided to skip the Mobile World Conference and it is unlikely that we will see any other major announcements from the South Korean giant that week. It's not the first time Samsung has skipped the conference, as in 2017, Samsung unveiled the Galaxy S8 at a separate event in March. © Twitter/Even Blass It has been long rumoured that Samsung will launch three variants of the Galaxy S10 i,e, the S10, S10 Plus and S10 Lite/E. Previous rumours have suggested that either all or some of these devices will come with Samsung's Infinity-O display, better known as the punch-hole display. The display will basically have a very small circular cutout that will house the front-facing camera. It will be at the top of the screen and looks similar to a punch hole on a paper. We can also see a clue about the new display in the invite, where the middle bezel is extremely thin and will be all around the phone. © Twitter/Venya Geskin1 Additional information from leaks suggests that Samsung may add a third camera to the back of the Galaxy S10 Plus and may sport a wide-angle lens just like the LGv40 and Huawei Mate 20 Pro. Of course, since these are all based on leaks, we can only be sure once Samsung makes it official at the February launch event. What Else Can We Expect? Samsung has already confirmed that it's working on a foldable smartphone and there's a good chance that we may see it unveiled at the “Galaxy Unpacked” event. It has already been confirmed by Samsung that the foldable smartphone will launch in the first half of 2019. We could also hear about the Galaxy Home smart speaker that is powered by Samsung's Bixby digital assistant. The smart speaker was unveiled at the Galaxy Note 9 launch however we haven't heard anything about it ever since.
  15. In the past few years, we've seen Samsung launch its S-series flagship phones on the sidelines of MWC (Mobile World Congress), but this could change in 2019. As per a new report, the Galaxy S10 will be announced on February 20, a few days ahead of the popular trade show. We expect the S10 to launch in three models, a regular Galaxy S10, Galaxy S10 Lite and Galaxy S10 Plus. According to the Gizmodo report, Samsung will launch the phones on February 20 and confirm its immediate availability for pre-orders, while sales are slated to begin from March 8. © Reuters Citing the source as a "major tech retailer", Gizmodo has also revealed the price of all the three options of the Galaxy S10. The S10 Lite is said to have a 5.8-inch flat display along with 128GB onboard storage and will be priced at GBP 669 (Rs 60,500). The primary variant or the "regular" S10 is expected to have a 6.1-inch display and the 128GB option will be priced at GBP 799 (Rs 72,000). A 512GB option will also be available and will retail for GBP 999 (Rs 90,000). A case manufacturer's expectations for the Galaxy S10 lineup: pic.twitter.com/lrExjvalcb — Evan Blass (@evleaks) December 8, 2018 Samsung has been launching a "plus" variant for two years now, and the S10+ with 128GB will be marked at GBP 899 (Rs 81,000) while the 512GB option will be marked at GBP 1,099 (Rs 99,000). The report also says that Samsung will be launching an S10+ variant with 1TB of internal storage and it will be priced at GBP 1,399 (Rs 1,27,000). Being the 10th anniversary of the S-series, the 1TB S10+ version is rumoured to have a massive 6.7-inch display along with six cameras. The report also further iterates that Samsung will not launch the 5G variant of Galaxy S10 before the second quarter of 2019. © Onleaks / 91Mobiles For now, the leak doesn't delve into the RAM and processor details, but we are fairly confident the USA variant will sport the recently announced Snapdragon 855 chipset. A recent leak by @evleaks suggests the three phones will feature a punch-hole style front camera and an even better edge-to-edge display. If true, Samsung will be the only mainstream phone maker to completely skip the notch trend. Another report by 91Mobiles says the S10 Plus will pack a 6.4-inch dual-curved edge AMOLED display along with an ultrasonic in-screen fingerprint scanner. Source: Gizmodo
  16. Pictures of the upcoming Galaxy S10 have been leaked on social media yesterday and it includes some details about its design. These pictures cannot be verified as the final design of the Galaxy S10 but it does give us a closer look at the final product. © SlashGear From the pictures it can be assumed we are seeing the larger Galaxy S10+ and from what we can gather it has a triple camera setup. Previous leaks have suggested that the base model i.e. Galaxy S10 will have a dual camera set up while the larger brother is expected to have a triple camera setup. The images leaked show the back of the rumoured Galaxy S10+. Both devices are somewhat unique as there is a noticeable difference in the lens size. This is indicative of the fact that either Samsung is working on multiple variants or the Galaxy S10 or the final design has not been decided yet. © Weibo An image from other sources i.e. a certain å¨-Mr强 from Weibo was sent to website SlashGear. This image may depict the accurate final design of the Galaxy S10 as it is in line with CAD drawings. There have been quite some changes in the design and renderings over the past week based on CAD drawings which makes it harder to pinpoint the leaks accuracy. © SlashGear The release date for the next Galaxy device by Samsung is set for March 2018. Samsung is also planning a massive event for Mobile World Congress 2019 and is usually the time when Samsung hosts the big Unpacked event. There's a high chance Samsung will reveal most of their smartphones of the year and Galaxy S10 is expected to be amongst the smartphone revealed. For now, we can only take these leaks with a grain of salt as the final product will only be confirmed closer to the event. Source: SlashGear
  17. It seems like Samsung is going all out with its upcoming Galaxy S10 with features that would outshine quite a few flagship smartphones. The Galaxy S9 looked like a small upgrade from its predecessor however it seems like Samsung is turning up the heat with the S10 this time. © Twitter According to Wall Street Journal, Samsung is preparing to launch four different models of the Galaxy S10, out of which one will have a massive 6.7-inch screen, have support for 5G and also pack six cameras. The six cameras will include a quad setup at the back and two selfie sensors in the front. Samsung has already launched the Samsung A9 in India yesterday that has a similar setup however the Galaxy S10 is reported to have even better sensors. © Twitter The other three smartphones from the lineup are expected to be smaller and have a screen size ranging from 5.8 inches to 6.4 inches. These models will also have different camera setups as some are expected to have three to five cameras in total. It is also being reported that the new Galaxy S10 device will incorporate reverse wireless charging similar to Huawei's Mate 20 Pro. In previous rumours we've covered that Samsung may not have a notch and instead have something entirely different. The Galaxy S10 is also expected to have chips dedicated for AI functionality and high-resolution cameras. Samsung is trying to experiment and push the envelope with their new smartphones especially since the Galaxy S9 and Note 9 are considered to have incremental upgrades. 5G support on smartphones is the next big step in communication and Qualcomm's new 8150 chipsets will be all about the new capabilities. The Snapdragon 8150 chipset will have the X50 5G modem with is already being utilised by companies such as OnePlus, Xiaomi and LG for 2019 smartphones. Source: Wall Street Journal
  18. Samsung's next flagship smartphone is expected to launch in a few months however that does not keep details from leaking. According to a report from Korea, the Galaxy S10 is expected to have a design that every manufacturer will strive to achieve. © Twitter/VenyaGeskin1 The Galaxy S10 is expected to have one of the most beautiful screens on a smartphone ever as Samsung has already teased the Infinity-O Display. It's basically a screen that will zero bezels and a tiny dot/hole at the top centre that will house the selfie camera. Korean website, TheElec claims that the screen will have a zero-bezel OLED panel and will have two holes that will have the camera and an infrared sensor. Other sensors, that are generally in the notch or top bezels, will be under the screen to give the smartphone a uniform look. The report adds that Samsung is using diode-pumped solid-state (DPSS) lasers to drill holes in displays. Samsung is also busy creating a new user interface that would accommodate these holes. UI tweaks will include displaying information on the left and right side of the hole such as single strength, carrier name, battery percentage and more. © Twitter The report also adds that Apple may adopt a similar screen for future iPhones as Samsung manufactures OLED panels for the Cupertino giant. It's not confirmed whether Apple would drop the notch design as the company uses Face ID and 3D facial recognition for unlocking the smartphone and use other features like Animoji. It's unlikely that Apple will opt for a screen design similar to the Galaxy S10 as the notch have an array of components essential for Facial recognition. Source: TheElec
  19. Batteries and Samsung have become a long-running joke due to the Note 7 debacle. While the iPhone price and kidney jokes get more and more relevant each year, the Note 7 explosion joke has become lame now. And it's because the brand has consistently managed to prove that Note 7 was a one-off incident, and it has learned its lesson. Just within two years of the Note 7, Samsung released a beefier Note 9 with 4000mAh battery and made it clear that the past is no longer relevant to judge the company and its products. Now, the brand intends to take another step forward and venture into graphene batteries. © iFixit According to a report by Sammobile, Samsung has completed its research and development of graphene batteries and is now gearing up to introduce the new technology next year. Rumours speculate that the Galaxy S10 could be the first phone to boast of graphene batteries. Though, Samsung Mobile head DJ Koh has promised “very significant” changes to the phone's design. However, SamMobile suggests that the company might bring graphene batteries first to mid-range smartphones. © PhoneArena Reports claim that the company's Advanced Institute of Technology completed the development of its first-generation graphene batteries and will start mass-producing them next year. The same institute had confirmed last year that 'graphene ball material' will be able to increase 45 per cent of charge as compared to the lithium-ion batteries. The material is also able to provide much better health retention and charges five times faster than a standard battery. These also take up lesser space, giving the OEM more room for additional features. © Wikimedia Graphene is a single layer of carbon atoms and is the thinnest compound ever known to man. It is also the best conductor of heat and electricity at room temperature. Even though it has a multitude of applications in every industry, the material hasn't really picked up because of the expensive and complex production process. Conventional Li-ion batteries can also be enhanced by the introduction of graphene to the battery's anode and capitalizing on the material's conductivity. Rumours are circulating that Tesla is working on a car graphene battery as well, drastically improving the efficiency of electric vehicles. Source: SamMobile
  20. Samsung smartphones are known to get leaked well before its official launch and sometimes the leak comes accidentally from the South-Korean company. The next flagship to launch for Samsung is the 10th anniversary Galaxy S10 and some details about the smartphone has surfaced online. © Twitter The upcoming device is expected to have an all-new design, an unconventional triple camera setup and a new 'ultrasonic' in-display reader. It's also rumoured that Samsung is working on a proper Face ID alternative and will probably incorporate it on the Galaxy S10. The leak was spotted by reliable leaker Ice Universe, where he came across a benchmarking test for the Galaxy S10 and it seems like the leak comes straight from Samsung. The test revealed details that give us a clearer picture about the new smartphone. According to the test, the Galaxy S10 has a new 19:9 aspect ratio with a resolution of 3,040 x 1,440 pixels. To put things into perspective, the Galaxy S9 has an 18.5:9 aspect ratio. Reports suggest that Samsung will not be making the phone any bigger than its predecessor but rather make the screen taller by removing top and bottom bezels. © MensXP We know that Samsung tries to hide their Galaxy S model by using different code names. For example, Samsung uses names such as 'SM-G4x5' to hide smartphones from the general public before launch. This particular Galaxy S10 leak had a similar code name and was referenced as 'SM-G405F' in the benchmark tests. There's a good chance that this leak comes directly from Samsung, albeit accidentally. © Twitter Of course, since this is just a leak based on a benchmark test, it should be treated with a grain of salt. Leaks generally turn out to be true especially when they are based on a benchmark test. However, one never knows that this might be a prototype device by Samsung that may never see day of light. We'll know more about the Samsung Galaxy S10 near its official launch and that seems a bit far away as of now. Source: Forbes
  21. While there are already a lot of phones out there sporting 8GB RAM, Samsung is now taking the competition to another level by introducing industry's first 10-nanometer 8GB LPDDR5 DRAM. Samsung's components business has been thriving in the past few years and the company has increased its focus on research and development. Not just RAM, but its Exynos processors have often surpassed Qualcomm's latest chipsets in terms of speed. Last year, the company also started production of high-capacity eUFS enabled 512GB flash storage for mobile phones. © Samsung While DDR5 RAM is now pretty common in high-end laptops and machines, the LP in LPDDR5 stands for low-power and is meant for mobile computing devices like a smartphone that has a very small supply of voltage available. Coming back to the new unveiling, LPDDR5 will have the peak data transfer speed of 6.4 Mb/s, which is 1.5X faster than the speed of existing LPDDR4 that goes into phones like the Galaxy S9 and OnePlus 6. © Samsung The new RAM chip is also more power efficient, Samsung says it has doubled the number of memory subdivisions within a DRAM cell from 8 to 16, churning out faster performance and lower power consumption. "Based on its industry-leading bandwidth and power efficiency, the LPDDR5 will be able to power AI and machine learning applications, and will be UHD-compatible for mobile devices worldwide," a Samsung spokesperson said. © Samsung Samsung is offering the new LPDDR5 in two variants: a version with a 6,400 megabits per second (Mbps) data rate at 1.1 volts, and a 5,500 Mbps version at 1.05 volts. Almost all high-end phones, mobile devices, and even portable PCs these days use LPDDR4X or even just LPDDR4. Samsung has also highlighted the point that LPDDR5 RAM is 1.5 times faster than the current chipsets available out there. © MensXP In fact, Samsung has also developed higher-capacity standard DDR5 chips without low-power features, as well as even faster GDDR6 chips for graphics cards. Currently, the S9 houses 4GB of RAM (LPDDR4) and going by the current trend, we won't be surprised to see the S10 house a humungous 8GB RAM chip along with 5G-ready capabilities. As of now, the RAM modules have been tested at a prototype stage and will be mass produced at its Pyeongtaek factory in South Korea.
