What Processor will the Samsung Galaxy S10 have?
Samsung is expected to have first dips on Qualcomm’s latest Processor at the the time. The Samsung Galaxy S10 will be equipped with th Snapdragon 855 CPU in the US markets while it’ll have a yet to be identified Exynos CPU in Europe. Samsung is also estimated to finally give a RAM upgrade to it’s flagship taking it up to 6GB of ram.
What will the Samsung Galaxy S10 price be?
The Samsung Galaxy S10 is expecting come in at about £659 / $755 / AU$1300. This is an educated estimate based on the previous Galaxy S prices and the trend of slightly increasing the price of flagships that is being seen lately. We don’t expect it to reach iPhone X prices.
When will the Samsung Galaxy S10 be released?
The Galaxy S10 release date is estimated to be on April 2019. Even though we expect the Galaxy S9 to be released on March 2018 we firmly believe Samsung will stick to April for the Galaxy S10 going back to what is it’s most used release month for the S Series flagship. The reasoning behind this is that Qualcomm will not have enough time to perfect its Snapdragon 855 chip and pressuring will not do any good.
Will Samsung Glaxy S10 have a fingerprint scanner?
Android 8.0 and above require devices to have a fingerprint scanner for security reasons and this does not seem to be something that will change soon. The recent patent that has surfaced from Samsung showing a fingerprint sensor embedded beneath the front glass feeds towards our positive conclusion that yes it will have a fingerprint scanner. It will also have a 3D sesnor front camera though for face recognition.
