Galaxy S10 tipped to have a side-mounted fingerprint reader, super wide angle lens

06 July 2018
Don't panic, only one of the Galaxy S10 versions will sport the side-mounted fingerprint.

I am guessing that there is a bit of confusion wrt things.
The 10th Anniversary of the s Series will have 3 phones. One S10 and S10 Plus. The 3rd Phone will be the Samsung X, the Foldable Phablet-Tablet Hybrid. I don't think there will be 3 S Series phones.

Also, I am in agreement with Samsung users about the technology and innovation being more of consolidation and regularization, rather than being very drastic and path-breaking.

It's not that Samsung is not ahead of the pack. It's nust that it keeps to keep the distance between itself and the other wolves more.

Especially since it does excel in the Memory, Screen and SoC Departments.

I hope it's Collaboration with ARM in the 7nm and 5nm chip fabrication process yields some industry leading results and that it uses it to increase its lead over the market.

I was hoping that Samsung reimage the multi-cam setup with all super fast readout cameras (Sensors with DRAM), and maybe have a 5 camera setup that ABSOLUTELY pushes the HDR and Low Light Capabilities of Smartphone cameras (along with 10-bit HEIF photos).

If it's not the top phone, it's a really low end phone. Look at all the mini versions of the Samsung flagships. And then look at the Sony compact of the flagships. Sony doesn't ruin the quality or hardware, just because you choose the compact model. Every other brand screws you on hardware, just because you want a little bit smaller model. If there will be a flat screen s10, then be aware that it will be a phone far from the edged version, when it comes to the hardware.

$620/$650?

If yes, then would the downgrade of the S10 Mini from the base S10 make sense to most buyers in a bid to save $100, keeping in mind that Android users are big on features? I don't think so. But either of us may be right and we'd know for sure next year.

A wide angle camera is the best thing that can happen. I would like so see more manufacturers picking up the trend.

As for why curved edges sell the best, it's because the look of it is amazing, as I said before. Looks should be in par with the phone, and Samsung has always been good at that

Did somebody mentioned flat screen?

Side-mounted fingerprint reader? INNOVATON! Samsung is really the leader not a follower.

Flat screen please

Meaning if the S7E outsold the S7 with only a few differences, it is virtually impossible that the S10 outsells its curved sibs with far more features axed. That's my point.

Scram, 07 Jul 2018Everyone started with flat screen. So, what's your point? The... moreS7 and s7 edge was only the battery and screen size in difference. The rest of the hw was identical. And the only brand who knows how to make a compact/mini/light phone is Sony. The rest of the brands are just screwing up the hw. Just like Sammy will do with the flat s10.
