Samsung Galaxy S10 5G Has Better Video Skills Than iPhone XS

Samsung Galaxy S10 5G Has Better Video Skills Than iPhone XS

Ironically, Samsung is tipped to be working on a foldable phone similar to Huawei's, despite professing its faith in the Galaxy Fold's design. The Chinese smartphone maker has caught the attention of a lot of tech fans over its Mate X foldable phone but that device has a huge price of $2,600.

Last month, Huawei revealed that its original prototype of a folding phone used the same book-style design as Samsung, but the project was killed off because it was "not good". Since it has no extra screen, it can be expected to be thinner than the Galaxy Fold. Samsung Electronics, President and CEO of IT & Mobile Communications Division, DJ Koh confirmed about the launch in a select press briefing at Galaxy S10 launch event on Wednesday. While there are plenty of great features promised by the S10 handsets, it's hard to focus on them when there's a foldable phone in the mix. There are other additions as well such as the in-screen ultrasonic fingerprint sensor and a triple camera set-up on the rear of S10+ that makes the phone feel more new, he said.

Want more jest? Lego also promises unhindered creative play as its battery never runs out.

The more intriguing note is another unsourced statement that Samsung is considering offering free screen replacements to account for a visible crease that appears on the Fold after it has been adjusted more than 10,000 times.

The Samsung executive acknowledged that the Galaxy Fold doesn't have a "perfect close" when shut, owing to concerns that the tablet screen would be damaged. The devices come with an ultra-wide-angle 16 MP lens and a 123-degree Field of View (FoV).

MWC 2019 has kicked off and it's looking like the most exciting iteration in years, in large part due to the presence of foldable phones. Samsung Galaxy S10 5G will launch first with Verizon on board, so you'll have to wait until the end of the year to experience the new speed, when Verizon 5G will reach 30 cities or so.

Teardown experts iFixit got their hands on the Samsung Galaxy S10, the bigger Galaxy S10 Plus and the more affordable Galaxy S10e, and gave all three the traditional treatment.

The case can be charged via a Qi-certified wireless charger or using the reverse charging feature on the Samsung Galaxy S10.
