The Samsung Galaxy Unpacked event is almost here and the event draws us even closer to the launch of the flagship Galaxy S10 lineup. As always a number of leaks have picked up momentum and updates are coming in daily.
The latest leaks concerning the Samsung Galaxy S10 cover from the memory details to its imaging hardware, also mentioning the 5G variant and Samsung’s foldable smartphone.
Samsung Galaxy S10 RAM And Storage
A couple of leaks also suggest that the Galaxy S10 Lite will be launched as the Galaxy S10 E and will have 4GB of RAM coupled with 128GB of inbuilt storage, while the regular Galaxy S10 model will come have 6GB of RAM alongside 128GB or 256GB of inbuilt storage. The larger Galaxy S10+ will have different variants that will come with 6GB or 8GB of RAM ticking alongside 128GB, 256GB or 512GB of storage.
Also Samsung’s 5G-enabled Galaxy S10 model will come with either 8GB or 12GB of RAM combined with 1TB of inbuilt storage.
Yes 1 Terabyte of storage, you didn’t misread that line
There will also be models with 256GB and 512GB of inbuilt storage.
Samsung Galaxy S10 Camera
The Galaxy S10-series smartphones will come with an ultra-wide 16-megapixel sensor with a f/1.9 aperture and 123-degrees field of view, but without OIS and autofocus support. It will be come with a rear 12-megapixel sensor with a 78-degree field of view and a variable aperture. Lastly, the Galaxy S10+ will exclusively come equipped with a rear 13-megapixel telephoto lens (F2.4 and 45-degree field of view) that will have extra support for OIS and auto focus mechanism.
There is also a Bright Night mode and a portrait lighting effect, which is mentioned is simply described by Samsung as ‘Stage Lighting’. I believe this is Samsung’s response to the ‘Night Sight’ feature for enhancing low-light photography on Google’s Pixel smartphones. Additionally, the location of the LED flash and the heart rate sensor will also be moved away from their normal position as seen on the previous generation of Samsung flagship smartphones.
The Galaxy S10’s LED flash will be placed on the left side while the heart rate sensor has just been pushed to the right side.
Samsung Galaxy S10 Hardware
Coming to the Galaxy S10’s hardware, Galaxy S10 will come with 5 cut outs and its speaker grill design will still remain similar to the one found on the Galaxy Note 9.
However, the power button on the Galaxy S10+ is has been moved a little bit higher above the dedicated Bixby button, while the placement remains pretty much the same on the smaller Galaxy S10 and Galaxy S10 E which is really similar to the one you would see on the Galaxy S9.
Also, the Galaxy S10 series will come with a new set of AKG-branded earbuds inside the box that will have a different colour and will come with a brand new redesigned logo. Also, the Samsung Galaxy S10 will boot One UI, however, it will have a navigation bar by default instead of the expected gesture-based navigation.
Extra details about the new Samsung foldable smartphone, which was on public display at the CES 2019 have also surfaced online. According to the leak, Samsung’s first foldable smartphone will come with 12GB of RAM , coupled with 512GB or 1TB of inbuilt storage. Also note that Samsung showed off a 5G phone prototype at the CES 2019 and has plans of launching the device in the first half of 2019.
The new Galaxy S10 leaks seem quite extensive, however, I would strongly advice that you take this information cautiously and take it with a pinch of salt
