Samsung planning three Galaxy S10 variants, one foldable phone for 2019

Samsung's folding phone WILL go on sale next year along with a notchless Galaxy S10

According to Bloomberg, Samsung is said to be in talks with U.S. mobile retailer, Verizon Communications to unveil Galaxy S10 with a fifth-generation wireless chipset in the US. The goal is to secure support from the biggest United States carrier to popularize the technology.

According to the report, the phone will also come with an in-display fingerprint sensor (similar to the Huawei Mate20 Pro), a rear triple-camera array and a true edge-to-edge screen with nearly no bezel. Three versions of the flagship model will be launched, including an affordable version to reach a wider audience.

In addition to overhauling its line-up of premium phones, the company is also "rushing to complete development of a bendable device", that it hopes will let it compete with Chinese rivals like Huawei and Oppo. If you're thinking OnePlus or Xiaomi to be behind the innovation, you're wrong. Bloomberg delivers one more exciting detail about the phone about the primary reason why one would worry about foldable Android phones: the user experience.

The report says the S10 will feature a curved OLED display with nearly no top or bottom bezel. The standard version of the device with a code name Beyond will receive a display size of about 5.8 inches, curving on the sides of the case. The phones are also reported to have three cameras on the back with a front camera "tucked under the screen".

Samsung has had its eyes on a foldable phone for many years now.

Leak Confirms New Cheap MacBook, Mac Mini, and iMacs for October 30
The new iPad Mini is expected to feature an improved processor, a lower cost display panel and possibly a subtly updated design. The company is set to launch the new Mac computers and iPad tablets on October 30 in Brooklyn, New York.

However, engineers are reportedly toying with the idea of removing the headphone jack from the device. The Galaxy S10 series of smartphones are going to arrive with Android 9 Pie OS onboard.

The news, this time around, comes directly from Samsung, which took the stage at the 4G/5G Summit in Hong Kong together with Micron to talk about the future of mobile memory. We should have the Samsung Galaxy A9 (2018) price in India in the coming days, so stay tuned.

"Samsung and Google have been working on developing a special version of the Android operating software for the phone, whose final user interface will depend largely on which of the two designs is chosen, one person said".

To start, we're now supposed to expect not only a Galaxy S10 (codenamed "beyond") with in-display fingerprint reader, but Plus and cheaper models too. The former, having a form similar to the older flap display phones like Moto Razr, is said to be finalised. The screen quality and look may also feel like a step down for anyone who is used to glass screens. The present prototype is also more than 200 grams heavy, which could lead Samsung to shave off the battery capacity to keep it lighter. The hinge, Bloomberg says, recently passed internal durability tests, but it's still unclear whether the design could hold up in mass production.
