Samsung is pulling out the big Galaxy guns ahead of Mobile World Congress 2019 to ensure the Galaxy S10 is seen as the ‘top dog’ in the smartphone world.
While the sales will bias towards the standard S10 and S10 Lite, the specs and critical acclaim will be the target for the Galaxy S10 X.
While 5G connectivity will be the headline feature, Samsung’s S10 X is going to push the boundaries of what it means to be a flagship smartphone in the current form factor (Samsung is expected to reveal a folding Galaxy to push the design envelope as part of the S10 family). That means lots of memory, lots of battery power, and lots of storage. SamMobile reports:
The 5G model has been rumored to have some killer specs, such as a 6.7-inch display, up to four rear cameras, and a 5,000 mAh battery, all of which will put it a notch (no pun intended) above even the Galaxy S10+. And since Samsung is already offering mainstream flagships and even the latest mid-range device with 128GB of storage, 256GB of base storage for the 5G Galaxy S10 would make sense.
This also means the Galaxy S10 X could have a minimum of 8GB of RAM, although that’s not something we can confirm at the moment.
What that will do to the price remains to be seen but all of these specifications are not going to be in budget handsets for a while. More
