It’s just a week before the launch of the new Samsung Galaxy models .
We already wrote about the future features of the Galaxy S10 smartphones, but those were rumors. Here is the official confirmation of the three key features of smartphones that will compete with the iPhone in 2019:
1. Fingerprint scanner built into the screen
Korean unit Samsung has published several short videos, the first of which can be guessed by the presence of a fingerprint scanner embedded directly into the screen.
Yes, we guessed it for several months.
Another thing is interesting: the “ultrasound” technology is mentioned, which hints at Samsung using a faster and more accurate fingerprint recognition method than its competitors OPPO and Vivo.
2. The smartphone will be able to charge other gadgets wirelessly.
The second short video hints that the Galaxy S10 smartphones can work as a wireless charging for other gadgets.
It is not too clear why this chip is needed. Perhaps the presentation will show new accessories, such as smart watches or a new generation of wireless headphones that can be charged just by putting it in one pocket with a smartphone.
3. Front camera with stabilization and shooting in 4K
The third video is as simple and clear as possible: even though the hands are shaking, the video is smooth and clear. It will be possible to shoot yourself in motion without shaking and trembling, which no doubt will be delighted by various bloggers.
Bonus: documentary proof of technical characteristics
Almost added this news, as a new information appeared: an anonymous GSMarena website detailed the characteristics of the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S10, Galaxy S10 + and Galaxy S10e.
Western colleagues warn that it may be a fake. Nevertheless, it is interesting to see how Samsung engineers will delight us.
The most interesting thing in published documents is cameras.
Galaxy S10 and Galaxy S10 + will be equipped with a triple camera :
◾️ tele-lens with a viewing angle of 45 degrees, 12 megapixel resolution, f / 2.4 focal length
◾️ conventional lens with a viewing angle of 77 degrees, a resolution of 12 megapixels, focal length f / 1.5
◾️ ultra-wide lens with a viewing angle of 123 degrees, a resolution of 16 megapixels, focal length f / 2.2
As for the Galaxy S10e, it will be equipped with a dual camera module , with conventional and ultra-wide lenses.
Among other interesting features is the mention of the screen brightness level of 800 nits. Improved screen brightness indicates a comfortable looking image in bright sunlight.
It remains quite a bit to see everything with my own eyes: the presentation of the new Samsung Galaxy S10 will take place on February 20, 2019 in the Bill Graham Civic Auditorium, New York.
We will be there, and tell you about the new ones. First, do not miss.
