Samsung Galaxy S10 To Launch In Three Variants Along With A Foldable Phone
According to a report, Samsung is preparing to launch it’s line-up of flagship phones next year. The Korean giant is planning to launch three models of the Galaxy S10. This will be its first 5G capable phone to challenge its rivals in the Chinese market. The company is in talks with Verizon Communications to launch the Galaxy S10 in the U.S. market. As per the source, the device is still under production and will sport a fifth generation wireless chipset. Samsung aims to secure the support of one of the biggest U.S. carriers to popularise the technology. Fifth generation chips will be designed to transfer data faster than the fourth generation chips in use now. The company will also be launching a foldable smartphone.

Samsung has also embedded a fingerprint scanner under the display of the S10. Three versions of the flagship model will be launched, including an affordable version to reach a wider audience. The S10 and S10 plus are said to include curved OLED screens with small bezels. This has been recently seen in many high-end Chinese phones. The phones are also reported to have three cameras on the back with a front camera “tucked under the screen”. Reports say that the company is testing the prototypes without the 3.5 mm headphone jack. This might point towards the end of a dedicated headphone jack in flagship Samsung phones.
There is no proper indication about the specifications for the phone. Some rumours say that the one variant might also be available with 12 GB of RAM. The device will also ship with the Android Pie OS. Not much has been revealed about the device as of now.
Samsung’s Foldable Phone
Samsung’s foldable phone which has been under development for years is codenamed “Winner”. The prototype weighs over 200 grams because of it’s large screens and the bendable display would not include an in-display fingerprint scanner. The hinge of the smartphone has recently passed the internal tests. It will have a threshold of 200,000 folds. Samsung and Google have been working together to develop a special version of Android for this phone.
