With all the rumors surrounding the Samsung Galaxy S10 relentlessly popping up on the internet lately, it's quite easy to anticipate the phone's imminent launch early next year. And it's also no longer a secret that the company's foldable smartphone dubbed the Flex will also debut in the first half of 2019 according to DJ Koh, head of Samsung's mobile business.
A new report today sheds more light on the upcoming flagship device from the South Korean tech giant. According to The Wall Street Journal, citing sources with knowledge of Samsung's plans, the company will introduce three variants of the Galaxy S10 in February of next year. The devices are said to be carrying the code names “Beyond 0,” “Beyond 1,” and “Beyond 2." Additionally, those handsets will be reportedly sporting displays with bigger dimensions: from 5.8 inches to 6.4 inches.
The three Galaxy S10 models are also said to be featuring between three and five cameras, with some of the phones expected to include a reverse wireless charging designed to let a device be used to charge another, just like Huawei's Mate 20 series.
Moreover, a fourth model of the Galaxy S10 with 5G support and code-named “Beyond X" is also reportedly in development, coinciding with a previous report. This version is supposed to be coming to the U.S. and South Korea in the spring of next year with an even bigger display: 6.7 inches. Plus, the 5G variant is expected to boast a quad-camera setup on the back of the device, just like the recently announced Galaxy A9 (2018), and a dual front camera, which will bring its total number of lenses to six.
The report remains largely unconfirmed, and it's worth pointing out that most of these details have made the rounds on the internet in recent months. But it's interesting to see how the supposed upcoming flagship models will attract consumers and help bolster Samsung's dwindling smartphone sales over the long term.
