Samsung to Launch a Killer Smartphone Cheaper than the Galaxy S10

Over the last couple of years, Samsung has announced the latest Galaxy Note device during July or August with the actual release following a few weeks later.

The Galaxy S10 features an in-screen ultrasonic fingerprint sensor, however, which can be used instead of facial recognition to authenticate the user's identity.

Visitors to SKT's ICT experience center at its Seoul headquarters can check out Samsung's Galaxy S10 5G and LG's V50 ThinQ 5G, and experience downloading 4K UHD streaming and virtual reality content on the devices starting Thursday, the firm said.

To put those numbers into perspective, Samsung sold 19.2 million Galaxy S9 series phones in the first half of 2018, and around 35 million for the entire year. Not only is it the brand's first flagship of this year, it's also the first series to offer a model with 5G connectivity support. Those of you who are into large displays on phones, will be able to get a 6.7-inch curved Dynamic AMOLED display on the Galaxy S10 5G, once the device becomes available.

This, as you can see, is interesting because of two reasons.

Samsung has recently launched the Galaxy S10, which is the company's best of the best right now, but it looks like the plan for the company is to have a total of six different flagships on the market. In fact, AT&T is trying so hard that it's going as far as updating phones with a fake "5G E" icon to mislead customers and make them believe they're connecting to a next-generation network.

I expect that to hold although a 5G version of the Galaxy Note 10 to be closer to $2000 with a fully specced version, with 1TB of storage, 5G and 12GB of memory to give $3000 a nudge.

Hints of a 5G-capable Galaxy Note 10 was first discovered in a kernel source code. Rest assured, we'll definitely let you know more about the phone when more information about it becomes available. We'll keep you updated on the latest.
