There’s no letup in the flow of news relating to the Samsung Galaxy S10 smartphones to be released early next year. Some reports had earlier held that there will be 4 and not 3 variants released, including the 5G-enabled device with 12GB RAM. Possibly, the later reports are not looking very seriously at the 5G variant and only the other 3 are under discussion. A couple of more details have surfaced now and thrown light on the display and the battery in the Samsung phones.
Front Camera Beneath the Display
As earlier reported, Samsung appears to have avoided the notch on the front screen and might place the selfie camera under the display screen but it can be seen through the surface. The immediate result of this is that the available real estate on the display to 93.4%. To place this in perspective, the screen to body ratio in the predecessor Galaxy S9 is 83.6%. When the bezel-free display was first launched by Samsung a couple of years ago, it went to town with the feature. It may do so with the Galaxy S10 once again next year.
More Clarity on Processor and Battery
With regard to the processor to be fitted on the next flagships from Samsung, the sense was that the company may choose the Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 SoC, at least with the limited objective of showing a difference with the SD 845 SoC, already available on many devices in the market. But the latest reports would give an indication that it might be the Qualcomm Snapdragon 815 SoC or an in-house Exynos 9820. This has been a regular practice with the processor being different for different geographical regions.
And when it comes to the battery too, the prediction is that Samsung will choose a powerful 4,000 mAh battery up from the 3,500 mAh that one saw in the Samsung Galaxy S9+. On the colors the phone is to be released in, there is now a confirmation that it will be only six, Yellow, Green, Red, Blue, Gray and Black.
One may see more such changes and suggestions coming through in the run-up to the final release or at least an official leak of some kind.
