Samsung Galaxy S10 Special Edition rumored to have 6 cameras and 5G
The Samsung Galaxy S10 is shaping up to be the company’s biggest phone release in years. This will mark the 10th anniversary of the flagship, and Samsung seems to be pulling out all the stops. We’ve been hearing about 4 different models, 5G support, in-display fingerprint scanner, under-screen camera, and more. According to The Wall Street Journal, much of this information is true, and it may be even more exciting than anticipated.
The WSJ confirms the company is preparing three main versions of the Galaxy S10 with screen sizes ranging from 5.8 to 6.4-inches. The three main models are said to launch in February, while a fourth 5G model is scheduled for later in the Spring. The 5G model will have a larger 6.7-inch display and six total cameras (two in front, four in back).
When we last wrote about the rumored camera setup on the Galaxy S10+, it was said to have two in front and only three in back. Two of the rear cameras would be the same as the Galaxy S9+, with the third being a 120-degree wide-angle lens. The WSJ only says the four cameras promise “richer photos and better spatial perception.” We expect the dual front cameras to be a typical standard and wide-angle setup. Another feature being discussed is “reverse” wireless charging, which allows the phone to charger other devices wirelessly. Huawei currently has this on the Mate 20 Pro.
The report goes on to say that Samsung will indeed announce the 5G model at an event in February. The release date, however, will be dependant on 5G support from carriers. Verizon, AT&T, and T-Mobile are all working on 5G support, and phone makers including OnePlus, Xiaomi, and Motorola are vying to be the first to market. Along with all this Galaxy S10 talk, Samsung is expected to show off their foldable phone next year. 2019 is set to be a huge year for the South Korean company.
