Samsung seems to be matching Apple's iPhone XS Max and budget XR models by releasing a larger "Plus" version and a cheaper one that will come sans the dual-curve edge screen or a fingerprint sensor, the report states.
A fresh leak that has surfaced from Weibo reveals that Samsung Galaxy S10 and Huawei P30 flagship phones will be launching in March 2019. The company is in talks with Verizon Communications to launch the Galaxy S10 in the US market. While the highest RAM configuration will be reserved for the high-end variant, the Galaxy S10 X is expected to boast 8GB RAM.
"We're continually evolving our smartphone portfolio to provide our customers with new and exciting innovations and experiences". While Samsung has been far away from the notch culture, the company might add a notch to their upcoming devices. "Please stay tuned", Samsung said in a statement.
A report from the Wall Street Journal in July said Samsung is developing a device, codenamed 'Winner, ' here the screen can be folded in half like a wallet. Samsung apparently hasn't finalized the design but has narrowed it down to to models: "one longer horizontally and the other vertically when unfolded, while both open from side and side". The phone will also have an under-the-display fingerprint sensor, and three cameras on the rear.
It would also have a four-inch screen on the outside so that users can check their messages and notifications without having to flip it open. But if the above tidbit is correct, it means Samsung hasn't decided on the most basic and fundamental design trait of the foldable phone. As per the report, the display is coated with a film that is basically used in photography. The company is struggling to figure out technical problems that may arise during mass production including possibility of this foldable display cracking into dried paper.
Samsung has tested the phone's folding mechanism more than 200,000 times, meaning it has passed the threshold for durability, according to Bloomberg. Samsung and Google have been working together to develop a special version of Android for this phone.
The final interface will depend on which of the final two prototypes Samsung chooses.
