Anniversary of any successful product deserves to be celebrated, and even more so if it happens to be a 10th anniversary. Last year, Apple celebrated a decade of its remarkable iPhone as the company brought out the trendsetting (once again) iPhone X. This year, it is Samsung’s turn to bring out the crackers and make some noise as it prepares to celebrate the 10th birthday of its Galaxy S series of smartphones.
Without a surprise, Samsung is hot on the development of its next-gen Galaxy S10 smartphone. The latest information is that there will be three variants of the upcoming high-end handset, instead of two, and they are being developed under the codename Beyond (or perhaps Space).
These variants are currently known as Beyond 0, Beyond 1 and Beyond 2. Clearly, 0 is going to be cheapest version, 1 will lie in the middle, while the 2 will be the most expensive and the most tech-laden variant.
What More Do We Know About The Three Upcoming Galaxy S10 Variants?
The allegedly codenamed Beyond 0 will come with a 5.8-inch display which shall remain flat (or straight) at the edges. It will not be a curvy infinity display. That treatment will be given to the Beyond 1 which will have the same 5.8-inch screen but it will be the infinity display. Lastly, the Beyond 2 will have the infinity display as well but we are not yet certain about its dimensions. However, we would assume it to have at least 6.2-inch display given that this is the dimension of the Galaxy S9+’s screen.
Secondly, the most interesting aspect of Beyond 2 comes in the form of in-screen fingerprint sensor and the incorporation of triple camera setup at the back. Of course, neither of the two has been confirmed by Samsung, but it is a good guess nevertheless. Given that it’s the 10th anniversary of the Galaxy S series, the South Korean company will want to do something radically different.
It is heavily speculated that the most expensive Galaxy S10 variant will come with the screen integrated fingerprint sensor as well as three cameras at the back. Also, it is said that the camera setup, and the functionality, will be different from what we have seen in the Huawei P20 Pro. It is understood that Samsung is working on its own camera sensor for the same.
Having three variants of its next-gen flagship phones could prove to be a good idea for Samsung since it will give more options to consumers to choose from.
