Samsung Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9 + phones can be the company's most boring flagship updates ever. They are just Galaxy S8 phones with slightly better specifications, and we all know that only Apple can get away with it. Now, the S9 and S9 + are expected to be the company's worst selling Galaxy S phones since 2012, and it's unclear how much the new Galaxy Note 9 will help Samsung's mobile business. After all, it's basically just last year's model with better specifications, even though it has a new stylus and a larger battery. But it's not good that the note 9 has already been forgotten, but the technology is only pressed three weeks after the release.
Apple's new iPhone XS and iPhone XR models were just announced and there is also good competition out there from Android phone makers. Even more competition will be coming soon, with Google's Pixel 3 setup and OnePlus 6T to launch. Things do not look good on Samsung's advanced phone line in 201
So far, everything we've heard about the Galaxy S10 has been amazing great news. Samsung is said to update its Infinity Display design with less hardware (do not worry, Android fans, there will be no hack) and the phone will be packed with next-generation components like a 7-nanometer chipset, faster RAM, faster flash storage and more.
An ultrasonic fingerprint sensor will be embedded underneath the screen so users do not have to fumble around the back of the phone anymore. It will free up space on the back of the phone for a brand new triple-lens rear camera that will eventually get to both the Galaxy S10 and Galaxy S10 + versions of the phone. The larger model is also said to pack a dual-lens selfie camera around the front.
Returning to the screen, the Galaxy S10 screen is expected to be even better than the Super AMOLED Panels Samsung used on this year's flagship, which is already the best in the class. The Galaxy S10 is expected to have a 5.8-inch Super AMOLED display, just like iPhone X and iPhone XS, while the larger Galaxy S10 + is said to get a 6.44-inch Super AMOLED screen that is about as big as the on the iPhone XS Max. If that's true, it would be the biggest screen Samsung ever used on a flagship smartphone, but smaller decorations should keep the overall size about the same as this year's Galaxy S flagship.
On top of all, we have some better news to share … kind of. Top Samsung insider Ice Universe is known to publish accurate information about unencrypted devices on Twitter and the Chinese microblogging network Weibo. On Thursday afternoon, he went to Twitter to discuss another touch of information about the upcoming Galaxy S10.
Smartphones with gradient colors are all the rage right now. The trend started with Huawei's P20 Pro as far as commonly available phones are running, and other vendors have been quick to jump on the bandwagon. It includes Samsung, which recently started selling a phone with a gradient in China. In response to a survey asking if the company should offer more phones with color ranges, Ice Universe said that the company has something even better in the store.
"The Galaxy S10 will have a very beautiful color scheme that is more beautiful than gradient," he said. It does not give us much to continue, but Ice Universe is quite good at subtle hints when he has big inside info that he can not share. The Galaxy S10 could be announced as early as in CES 2019 at the beginning of January, but we're sure the phone will leak long before then, so we can see what crazy color Samsung has planned.
