Samsung is one of the biggest names in the smartphone market. The South Korean firm is best known for its Galaxy lineup of flagship phones. Samsung debuts new phones every year, with millions of units sold. However, Samsung is facing a lot of competition out there, which gives the company a driving reason to improve its products.
At this year’s Unpacked event, the South Korean firm unveiled the Galaxy Note 9 after endless leaks and rumors. The Galaxy Note 9 is expected to follow in the footsteps of the Note 8 and dominate the market. However, Samsung is not just about the Note series.
In March 2018, Samsung unveiled the Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus. Basically, the S9 is not a huge upgrade over its predecessors. However, it is still among the best Android phones you can buy right now on the market. In reality, Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus have seen a slow sales performance since the launch day. Samsung needs something to boost its smartphone sales in the coming months.
Samsung is expected to unveil the next generation Galaxy phone. Samsung has not confirmed what it will call the device. But sources say that the phone will be called Galaxy S10. We have heard a lot of reports of Samsung’s latest phone. Specifically, the S10 will feature 5G connectivity, making it one of the first phones with support for 5G capability.
Carriers in the US and the UK have been testing out the 5G network for months. However, it remains unknown when it is fully ready. Samsung confirms that the upcoming Galaxy S phone will not be the first phone with support for 5G capability. This makes sense as a wide range of smartphone brands have been working on adding 5G support to their smartphones.
Sources say that the Chinese smartphone makers like Xiaomi, Oppo, or Huawei have been testing prototypes with 5G functionality at their manufacturing facilities. And Samsung does not want to get left behind.
The Galaxy S10 is expected to make its public unveiling in March 2019. The upcoming phone is rumored to come with an under-display fingerprint scanner.
