Latest News - / Samsung - Posts


Thanks to famous tech YouTuber MKBHD, we now have a video that shows the Galaxy S10 and S10+ in their full glory (well, as close to it as a model can show anyway!). The models in question are from one of the casemakers and is likely quite a dependable representation of the upcoming Galaxy S10 and S10+. Not that the reveal date is too far away at the moment mind you (February 25), but even then, these are always interesting to watch. We have included the video in the post, so do take a look at it yourself before deciding if the boxy phones are really what Samsung is going to unveil in little more than three weeks.

The controversy regarding the 3.5mm jack is not going to go away anytime soon and while a lot of companies have decided to let it go, Samsung is not one of those manufacturers fortunately. Staying true to their promise about keeping hold of the good old 3.5mm headphone jack, the Galaxy S10 is going to have one as well. Although a prototype had earlier shown up that showed the S10 not having one, multiple casemakers have now confirmed beyond doubt that the upcoming S10 smartphones will indeed sport a headphone jack. This is good news really because if you think about it, it would practically make no sense to exclude it from any phone. In case you are not in agreement with that point of view, then let us refute two of the most popular arguments against the headphone jack.


A Headphone Jack Doesn't Allow for a Bigger Battery - Most smartphones with the biggest batteries available in the market today come equipped with a headphone jack, thus negating that argument. In fact, even the Note 9 sports a 4,000mAh battery, in addition to sporting the headphone jack proudly.


The 3.5mm Jack is Obsolete - A technology can only be considered obsolete when something better is able to replace it completely. An example of that would be how Android replaced Symbian because it was better in every way. Removing the headphone jack on the other hand, poses a number of problems and they can be summed up as follows.


·        There aren't enough good quality USB Type-C headphones out there at the moment

·        People have high-quality wired headphones at home that would lose compatibility with their smartphones if the jack was removed

·        Wired sound is more reliable and better in quality

·        Wired headsets do not require charging

·        You can't use USB Type-C headphones while the device is connected to a PC or being charged


If you need more convincing, then you are probably too biased to realize the truth and in that case, feel free to buy an iPhone!

galaxy-s10-plus-leadked


The Galaxy S10 series is about to be unveiled in less than three weeks' time in San Francisco, at an exclusive Samsung event on the 20th of February, so isn't it about time that we got a look at the actual handset via leaks? Well, there has certainly been a few, but compared to the last few years, the number of live images have been surprisingly low. Nonetheless, the renders have left little to imagination and today's render seems to be one of the most accurate depictions of the upcoming S10+ with a 6.4" display that we have seen so far.


Take a look at the image and let us know what you think about this leak, or if you are of the opinion that Samsung has something more interesting up its sleeves? Personally, I think this image by 91Mobiles have far too big bezels, in comparison to what we have seen so far, but that in itself is probably the reason why this is likely what we will see in the upcoming Galaxy S10 series of smartphones!

DxOMark did not test selfie cameras before, but in line with the changing times, they have now started doing it. Their first test protocol for selfie cams have interestingly enough, put the Galaxy Note 9's selfie camera ahead of almost every other smartphone available in the market right now, which was a pleasant surprise. If you are wondering why it was a surprise, then that's because there isn't anything too special about the single front camera of the device on paper to be honest! It's just a 8-mp, 1/3.6-inch sensor. Perhaps the autofocus is the differentiating factor here, we are not really sure.


DxOMark gave the Note 9 a whopping 92, putting it ahead of even the Apple iPhone XS Max (82) and Samsung's own Galaxy S9+ (81). Interestingly enough, the Xiaomi Mi Mix 3 stands second in rank with 84 points, ahead of Apple's exorbitantly pricy flagship smartphones. The only phone which has managed to match the Note 9's selfie cam in terms of performance is the Google Pixel 3, which also scored 92.

galaxy-S10-price


There's hardly a month or so in between now and the Galaxy S10's unveiling at the MWC 2019 in Barcelona next month and surprisingly enough, we have actually not seen enough Galaxy S10 leaks, like we had seen in 2017 and 2018, during the respective launching of the S8 and S9 series. However, thanks to a report brought to light by SamMobile, we now have some information regarding how the S10 series will be priced. Not that is anything concrete or absolute at the moment, but this is what we have at the moment!


·        Galaxy S10 Lite (E): 779 euro/$879


·        Galaxy S10 (6GB/128GB): 929 euro/$1,050


·        Galaxy S10 (8GB/512GB): 1179 euro/$1,340


·        Galaxy S10+ (6GB/128GB): 1049 euro/$1,200


·        Galaxy S10+ (8GB/512GB): 1299 euro/$1480


·        Galaxy S10 X:  1599 euro/$1,799


As you can see, it's going to be an expensive buy this year, if you want any of Samsung's S10 series of smartphones, and even more so if you want the rumored Galaxy 10 X. The pricing details and the multiple models almost makes me wish that Samsung kept things simpler like they used to. After all, it makes little sense spending $879 on a smartphone that will always be considered as a "budget" smartphone in the premium category!
