Samsung Galaxy S10: Not a day passes without new points being raised on the proposed release of Samsung’s next set of smartphones in the Galaxy series. One variant of the Samsung Galaxy S10, expected to be a special 10th-anniversary edition, has excited the industry observers no end.
However, this particular 5G variant of Galaxy S10 has not been showing up in any of the certification sites while its counterparts have been certified. This has now happened not just once but twice in a span of a month. First, it was the Chinese certification site (MIIT) and now it’s the Russian certification site Rosaccredit.
Samsung May Still be on Course
Based on information from reliable sources, we know that the South Korean company has decided to split the launch of the Samsung Galaxy S10 flagships into two events. One, to be held in February 2019 will have 3 devices, the standard 5.8 inch Galaxy S10 with a higher RAM and storage to the Galaxy S10 Lite with the same display size and a Galaxy S10 Plus with a 6.2-inch display. Now the fourth variant which will be called the same Samsung Galaxy S10 5G but with a different suffix like X (a la iPhone X) to signify the 10th anniversary will be released a month later, in March 2019. No wonder this phone has not been included in the list of phones certified by China’s MIIT.
What We Know About the Samsung Galaxy S10 5G Phone
As mentioned, Samsung may yet be on course with the release of the 5G enabled version of the Galaxy S10 with some unprecedented specifications and designs. The display size is expected to be 6.7 inches and the RAM 12 GB. There is a slight confusion on whether the internal storage could be 512 GB or 1 TB. The real talking point, as already reported earlier is the absence of the notch in the display screen. This is the factor that is delaying the release of this variant by about a month. It involves a special technology to embed the front camera and make it deliver the same performance when housed inside a notch.
But the delay suits Samsung very well. It might hold a separate 10th-anniversary gala to announce this phone and not allow this extraordinary phone to be drowned in the noise created by the other 3 variants. Samsung has dumped certain devices before, but it is doubtful if it will take such risks with this one.
