Samsung’s coming Galaxy S10 is expected to be a major update of its line of flagship phones. According to a new report from The Wall Street Journal its 10th anniversary for its main smartphone will have three versions of the usual Galaxy S10 and a super powerful “Beyond X” model that would contain a 6.7-inch display, six cameras and support for 5G.
The three S10 models are expected to extend in size from 5.8 inches (the current size of S9) to 6.4 inches (slightly larger than S9 Plus) and have between three and five cameras between front and back, depending on the model.
The company is also considering adding a reverse charge feature that allows the S1
0 models to share the battery life with other devices, like another phone or pair of headphones, similar to Huawei’s Mate 20 Pro.
The model “Beyond X” is said to offer a massive 6.7-inch screen (Galaxy Note 9 has a 6.4-inch screen), a total of six cameras two forward and four rear) and support for next generation 5G network. “Beyond X” sounds a lot like Apple’s 10th anniversary iPhone X, at least conceptually. It’s a drastic update that drives design and technology throughout the assortment further into the future, rather than just iterating a previous design.
With all the different screen sizes and form factors in games, it is also possible that the S10 and Beyond X phones may contain some of the new screen displays that Samsung was in trouble at their developer conference earlier in November.
According to WSJ all four phones can be announced as early as an event in mid February. The three S10 models are expected to come on the market first and the “Beyond X” model is intended to come whenever carriers have 5G service to support it, which is expected to be once this spring.
This is all but the folding phone that Samsung has already plagued for release sometime next year, like the WSJ notes can be called “Galaxy Flex”, although there is less information about when that phone comes to be released.
