New details about Samsung’s 5G Galaxy device have surfaced, suggesting it could be a powerhouse of a phone.
According to a report from South Korean publication ETNews, the 5G Galaxy phone will be an ultra-premium model called the Galaxy S10 X. Further, ETNews says this represents the 10th anniversary of the Galaxy S line and two of Samsung’s alleged buzzwords for the device: “eXperience” and “eXpansion.”
However, more importantly, is the reported specs of the S10 X. ETNews says the phone will feature an in-display fingerprint scanner, an insane 1TB of storage, a massive 5,000 mAh battery and at least 10GB of RAM.
On top of that, the phone could have six cameras — two selfie cameras and a quad-camera setup on the back — plus 3D sensors on the front and back and a giant 6.7-inch Super AMOLED display.
ETNews also mentioned the inclusion of an AI “secret weapon” that allows the phone to adapt to one’s usage and automate certain software features.
The S10 X will likely accompany an S10, S10+ and S10 Lite, which will reportedly launch in South Korea on March 8th. The S10 X will come later, on March 29th.
Finally, ETNews says the regular S10 will cost between ₩800,000 and ₩900,000 KRW (between about $946 and $1,064 CAD). The S10 X, however, could cost as much as ₩1.8 million KRW (roughly $2,128 CAD).
It won’t be long until we know if the Galaxy S10 X really exists. The company has an Unpacked event in California towards the end of February, where it’s expected to launch the S10 and potentially its foldable phone.
