It's not often that we make the recommendation to readers that they take the opportunity to buy our favorite new smartphone. And make no mistake about it, Samsung Galaxy Note 9 is by far our favorite new smartphone. In fact, it will probably be our favorite Android phone in 2018 when everything is said and done, because nothing set to be released in the coming months looks better. Yes, it includes the upcoming Google Pixel 3 XL, since we are having trouble getting past the massive notch that does not even improve enhanced 3D Face Detection. The "clean" Android experience is great and we're sure that Google's Pixel 3 line will be very good, but a new leak indicates that Samsung is working hard to exploit Project Treble and launch Android updates faster. Faster updates are really the only reason to buy a Pixel over a Galaxy phone, and the gap seems to be constriction.
But unfortunately, we actually think that smart Samsung fans will jump over Galaxy Note 9. There are so many reasons that it's a wonderful phone, but there are also a number of important reasons not to buy it and they are about a new Samsung smartphone that will be debuting in the coming months. That's right, we're talking about the Galaxy S1
Samsung Galaxy S10 is set to be the most exciting smartphone Samsung has released this year. In fact, it may end up being the most exciting smartphone Samsung has released, period. Samsung launched three new flagship smartphones in 2018 and to be honest they are all boring and uninspired. They are great phones, but they reuse last year's design, and they are definitely just iterative upgrades compared to their predecessors. The Galaxy S10, on the other hand, is set to be a massive upgrade, and in this post we will cover five reasons why you should consider jumping over Galaxy Note 9 and waiting for next year's Galaxy S10, Galaxy S10 + and "Galaxy S10 Lite . "
The design is the biggest question about Samsung's upcoming new Galaxy S10 series, but we have heard nothing but good news so far.
The Galaxy S10 is expected primarily to have no other minor design update like the Galaxy S9. We have heard that the phone will have a design that is the next step in the development of Samsung's Infinity display. It will still have curved edges on the right and left side as well as on the back. The biggest difference should be significantly smaller frames above and below the screen. We have also heard that the Galaxy S10 can be even thinner than S9 and Note 9.
Long story shortly, the Galaxy S10 series apparently will take everything well with Galaxy S9's design and make it even better.
New Fingerprint Sensor
The central fingerprint sensor on the back of Galaxy Note 9 has a better location than it was on Galaxy Note 8, which had the sensor on the side of the camera lenses. It's still on the back of the phone though, which means that users still turn their fingers around their backs when they search for it. Fortunately, the days of lubricating oil from the hands over the back of the phone and the camera lenses are almost over.
Samsung Galaxy S10 line will contain new ultrasonic fingerprint sensors embedded in the displays. This means that users will be able to unlock their phones, open secure apps, and approve payments just by touching a finger to a particular area of the screen.
Triple Camera Camera
Samsung Galaxy Note 9 has a great camera. It's easy among the best cameras we've ever tested on a smartphone. But it's still not as good as the camera on the Huawei P20 Pro, which is the first big-name flagship phone to have a triple lens camera setup. Next year, however, Samsung comes to Huawei with a triple lens camera on two of its three new Galaxy S10 models.
The largest Galaxy S10 and the larger Galaxy S10 + will eventually have Samsung's new triple camera layout on the back, and leaks from trusted sources have described each of the three sensors. It is apparently a new 12 megapixel wide-angle sensor and a 12 megapixel optical zoom and portrait mode image sensor plus a third 16 megapixel ultrasound sensor to capture even more data. The results will undoubtedly be the most impressive images ever broken with a Galaxy smartphone and we can not wait.
Galaxy Note 9 is one of the fastest and most powerful smartphones on the market right now, but it still does not measure up to last year's iPhone when it comes to power. So next month when Apple releases new iPhone models with next-generation 7nm A12 chipset, they will leave Note 9 in dust.
Next year, the Galaxy S10 and Galaxy S10 + will also have the next generation of 7nm chips that are more powerful and more efficient than all we've seen before in a Galaxy phone. The versions sold in the US and China will use Qualcomm's upcoming new Snapdragon processor, while the version sold elsewhere will execute a new Exynos chip. Both new chipsets will deliver performance we've never seen before in an Android phone.
Last but not least, the Galaxy S10 will offer options that we just do not have with Galaxy Note 9.  If you want a Note 9, you can either get a very big, very expensive version or a really big really really animal version. Meanwhile, the Galaxy S10 comes in three different sizes to a wide range of price points. The listing level "Galaxy S10 Lite" will probably be priced in line with other upper midrange, and then the Galaxy S10 will probably cost about as much as the Galaxy S9. People looking for larger screens can choose the Galaxy S10 +, which will round off Samsung's new range in high end.
