Samsung Electronics is expected to bring a huge technological upgrade to its 10th anniversary flagship phones next year, including 5G network support, bigger screens and up to six cameras, according to a news report on Tuesday.
According to the Wall Street Journal, the Korean tech giant’s flagship Galaxy S10 smartphone will come in three versions while a top-end model codenamed “Beyond X”, similar to Apple’s 10th anniversary iPhone X, would feature six cameras between the front and back, and a 6.7-inch display, which would be larger than the Galaxy Note.
The Galaxy Note 9 launched recently has a 6.4-inch display. It is also slightly larger than the Galaxy S9 Plus. The displays of the other two Galaxy S10 models are rumored to be in 5.8 inches and 6.4 inches, respectively.
The top-end Galaxy S10 is also said to offer a total of six cameras (two front-facing and four rear) and support for next-generation 5G networks. It would be Samsung’s first premium smartphone with four rear cameras. The other two models are expected to have a triple camera setup.
Earlier, Bloomberg reported Samsung is in talks with U.S. Verizon regarding the release of the Galaxy S10 to support the 5G communication chipset.
