Samsung’s 5G-Ready S10 ‘X’ Sounds Like a Powerhouse That Will Wreck Your Wallet

So far, news has already been received about Samsung’s next unpacked event on February 20, where we expect to see the three versions of the new S10 (S10 Lite, S10 and S10 Plus). But now, a new ETNews report from the South Korean store suggests that the 5G compatible variant of the Samsung S10 will wear a really far hardware.

Nicknamed as Galaxy S10 X, ETNews says that Samsung’s first 5G phone will go on sale officially in Korea in late March (shortly after the standard S10 models are shipped earlier that month) for between 1.6 million and 1.8 million won (around $ 1,425 to $ 1,600).

Now that it’s a bit of serious money for any phone, but if you take a look at some of the alleged specs of the Galaxy S10 X, that price of $ 1,500 might not be completely extravagant.

Overcoming the rumored S10 + of the three rear cameras, the S10 X will supposedly come with four cameras on the back along with two on the front, a large 6.7-inch AMOLED screen, 10 GB of RAM along with 1 TB of storage and 5,000 mAh battery. As for its chip set, it seems that the S10 X will come with an Exynos 5100 processor in Korea, although if Samsung’s previous Galaxy phones are a clue, that Exynos chip will probably be exchanged for a Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 when the S10 XA arrives the EU

ETNews also says that like the rest of the Galaxy S10 family, the S10 X will feature something called “life mode mode” that attempts to control and automate certain parts of the phone using AI to monitor typical usage patterns. That could mean something like automatically closing some applications that the S10 does not think it will need in the future or adjusting performance to favor the CPU or GPU, which sounds similar to the smart tuning that Huawei has been doing with their phones for a while. Couple of years. .

In short, the components of the S10 X are read as a wish list for today’s smartphone fanatics. It has a large and powerful hardware with a huge battery and most of the cameras we’ve seen on a smartphone so far (unless Nokia outperforms the S10 in the market). And even with the increased battery consumption of any activity related to 5G, the S10 X can offer a pretty ridiculous battery life.

After the lackluster sales of the Galaxy S9, it seems that Samsung has more to prove in 2019 than ever before, and among the four new S10 models, including the S10 X and its next flexible phone, Samsung could have what it needs to inject some emotion. on their phones.
