Samsung Galaxy s10 is rumored to launch soon

Gizmodo UK stated that Samsung might reveal the Galaxy S10 on February 20 and go on sale on March 8. This is based on information from an unnamed source at a well-known tech retailer.

The speculated launch date, which is on a Wednesday, would precede the annual Mobile World Congress (MWC) trade show in Barcelona, Spain. March 8, a Friday, is a common day for phone releases. While the rumor doesn’t provide specific details about the location of the Unpacked event, New York or Barcelona appear to be the most likely choices for these dates.

The Galaxy S10 could potentially be available in variations such as the S10 Lite and S10 Plus models.

The Galaxy S10, possibly referred to as “Beyond 1,” is expected to be a standard model similar in size to the current Galaxy S9. It will feature thinner bezels and a 6.1-inch screen, with just one front-facing camera and without support for 5G technology.

The Galaxy S10 Plus, potentially called “Beyond X” or “Beyond 2,” resembles the current Galaxy S9 Plus. It features the largest screen, possibly around 6.4 inches, and stands as the only model equipped with four rear cameras, two front-facing cameras, and support for 5G technology. Anticipate a larger battery and a higher price tag for this variant

Rumor, The headphone jack on the S10 is still present at this point.

Before dismissing the headphone jack as a guaranteed feature, it’s worth mentioning that Samsung’s Galaxy A8S does not include one.

However, it does sport a screen that is anticipated to make its way to the Galaxy S10 (as detailed below). Back in October, a report from the Korean outlet ET News suggested that Samsung might eliminate the headphone jack in either the Galaxy Note 10 or Galaxy S11.

At present, it seems that the headphone jack remains unaffected. A case that has been associated with the Galaxy S10 features a port for a standard 3.5-millimeter headphone jack. This prompted the well-known leaker Ice Universe to share a brief video showcasing the clear plastic case.

However, it’s important to note that there’s no way to confirm the accuracy of the case’s design as we lack information about the case manufacturer and the source of their information. Additionally, one can observe a wide horizontal opening on the back, which suggests the potential placement of multiple cameras.

Will the Galaxy S10 ultimately have a 3D “Face ID” and do away with the iris scanner?

galaxy s10

Rumors now imply that Samsung might be taking a different tack with the Galaxy S10. There are rumors that the upcoming phone will use a technology that could potentially rival Apple’s Face ID in place of the iris scanner. Sense ID 3D Face Authentication, a distinct face-mapping technology supported by Qualcomm’s most recent chip, is sufficiently safe for mobile payments. Samsung may use this new sensor to develop its version of Face ID.

Having a depth-mapping selfie camera could make it possible to create more effective augmented reality (AR) effects and applications, in addition to offering safe face unlocking. It may, for instance, enhance the AR Emoji, which was viewed as less successful than Apple’s Memoji and failed to receive as much positive response.

In conclusion, the Galaxy S9 missed out on the chance to use cutting-edge face-mapping technology for unlocking when it was first released. However, there are now indications that Samsung might be thinking of taking a more complex approach with the Galaxy S10, utilizing Qualcomm’s Sense ID 3D Face Authentication for enhanced security and virtual-reality capabilities.

The Galaxy S10 Plus has a total of six cameras.

A report claims that the Galaxy S10 will likely have four rear cameras; the larger Plus model will likely have two front-facing cameras, while the normal Galaxy S10 will probably just have one.

Increased zoom, improved detail capture (particularly if one back camera is monochrome), and the capacity to generate depth maps for portrait mode (the “bokeh effect”) and augmented reality (AR) applications are just a few benefits of having dual rear cameras.

The October launch of Samsung’s Galaxy A9, a smartphone featuring four rear cameras, in Asian regions lends credence to this claim. Samsung probably tested the software and camera design on the Galaxy A9 before making improvements to the much-awaited Galaxy S10.

It’s important to note that there are some differences in the speculations, though, since consistent Twitter leaker Evan Blass claims that the Galaxy S10 will really have three rear cameras rather than four.

These are all rumors and news reports. We will provide you with updated information once the official launch occurs
