UPDATE: Samsung confirmed the foldable smartphone that could arrive this year at the Samsung Developers conference in November. A report from the Wall Street Journal claimed that Samsung could release a folding phone as early as the beginning of 2019. When expanded, the device would have a 7-inch screen, which makes it roughly the size of a small tablet.
Gutcheck: Looks like Samsung is working on stealing some of the thunder from the upcoming iPhone X and Google Pixel 3 announcements at the end of 2018. Apple is reportedly also rolling around the idea of a folding iPhone, which would compete with Samsung’s redefined flip phone.
Samsung’s Galaxy S10 phone will have three sizes and a fingerprint reader in the display
If you want a typical, non-folding Samsung phone, a report spotted by Business Insider says the upcoming Galaxy S10 will have three versions, inclduing 5.8-inch, 6.1-inch, and 6.4-inch displays. The report also claims that the larger models will have an ultrasonic fingerprint reader integrated into the display.
Gutcheck: It’s still early to speculate about the Galaxy S10 since it won’t debut until next year, but these rumors seem reasonable when considering the Galaxy S trajectory. The in-display fingerprint reader also makes sense as a differentiator from the iPhone, since Apple isn’t likely to release a phone with that feature.
