Samsung has a hard time this year. The giant, even after ruling the smartphone industry for quite some time now is not able to turn the tables even with its scheduled-to-be-best offerings. First, the Note 9 leak confirmed that Samsung is not including its flagship offering, the finger touch in the smartphone and now leaks about Samsung Galaxy S10 has a story of its own to tell to the users. Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9+ were supposed to be one of the best offerings by the smartphone maker but the models fail to excite users.
Although Samsung managed to sell a good number of S9 models all because of exceptional camera and a few specifications that were of course at par. But the sales seems not to do the justification to the company's expectation with the device.
From Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9+, the users’ attention shifted to Galaxy Note 9 that was expected to offer something innovative for the users but these expectations didn’t meet to the users’ assumptions as Samsung decided to ditch the in-display fingerprint sensor with the model. It was actually disappointed to see Samsung taking such a decision.
Well, the users are once again hoping to get something best with the all-new yet-to- come Samsung Galaxy S10 and it seems like the smartphone maker is again providing the offering that users were looking forward to. The phone is rumored to have fingerprint sensor back on the display itself by making way for some of the design changes in the device. The leaks have also confirmed that the smartphone will display a camera that has been developed in partnership with Qualcomm. It means the device will have similar facial recognition technology as it is featured in iPhone X.

Further specifications will include a display of 5.8 inches while the big sibling i.e. Samsung S10 Plus will have a 6.3-inch display. So, the size of the device is roughly going to be the same as S9 and S9 plus.
Samsung’s current offering is infinity display design where screen takes most of the front space. In order to include the fingerprint sensor, Samsung may plan to add the touch bar at the back of the phone. Rumors also have it that there will be a built-in sensor for the fingerprint touch in the new model. The technology is most commonly referred to as FOD or “fingerprint on display”. The technology has been used a few times before by the giant and it may make its way for the Samsung Galaxy S10 also.
Well, the smartphone maker may take a complete year to make these devices available in the market for the users. Samsung’s latest releases hit the market March this year i.e. 2018 and thus the giant will take at least a year to roll out another exceptional offering for the users. So, this new offering is only going to hit the market in the year 2019 somewhere between February and March 2019. However, the dates are not announced and thus there is no official confirmation on the same.
In terms of pricing, experts are predicting it to be somewhere in between £799 for the S10 and £899 for the S10 Plus. The price is just an early estimation and thus it may fall or rise after the official phone launch.
This is all we have for now about Samsung Galaxy S10. Have a look at our list that features other upcoming releases to get every bit of information about the gadgets that are yet to hit the market.
