Samsung reportedly planning five flagship phone models for early 2019

We’re rapidly approaching 2019, and that means it choose soon be time for Samsung’s yearly Galaxy S flagship launch. The train has been facing declining smartphone sales for some time now, and if the current Wall Street Journal report is to be believed, it seems Samsung’s 2019 design will be to launch a whole bunch of high-end smartphone models and let the shop decide.

The Journal‘s report claims the Galaxy S10 launch should develop sometime in February, and instead of the usual two smartphone models (one big, one small), Samsung wishes launch three variants of the Galaxy S10 at once. The report says the three examples will have “displays that range in size from 5.8 inches to 6.4 inches”—so in place of of “big” and “small,” it sounds like we’re getting “small,” “medium,” and “colossal.” After similar designs for the S8 and S9, the S10 is expected to be all new.

Additionally, the report claims Samsung devise be prepping a fourth version of the Galaxy S10 with 5G connectivity and an even brawnier screen. The device, codenamed “Beyond X,” is said to have a 6.7-inch betray and a whopping six cameras: two in the front and four in the back. The Journal didn’t say what Samsung was plotting to use all these cameras for, but we can take a guess. The two front cameras would most qualified follow the Pixel 3’s lead and include a wide-angle lens in addition to the customary selfie cam, sort of like a built-in selfie stick. For the four on the raw, Samsung recently released a phone with four rear cameras—the Galaxy A9—so it’s a reliable bet the S10 will follow the same layout. The A9’s rear-camera setup basically covers every dual camera gimmick of the past few years: you get a wide-angle lens, a telephoto lens, a plain camera, and a depth camera for bokeh effects.

This bigger, 5G-capable Galaxy S10 is proper to see a later spring release, according to the report. Samsung is currently in talks with carriers to see who can gather together a mobile 5G network by then. The first 4G devices were incredibly battery peckish, thanks to the first-generation 4G modems that existed as a separate chip, in lieu of of the SoC-integrated modems of later designs. It looks like 5G is going down a be like path for launch, with separate 5G chips. It would not surprise me to pick up that the 5G model has the biggest screen just so it can fit a bigger battery and power this priceless new modem.

High-end Samsung smartphone #5 is the mythical foldable smartphone, which Samsung guyed on stage earlier this month. A report from South Korea’s Yonhap Rumour Agency said the phone would cost $1,770 and be called the “Galaxy F,” but The Collapse Street Journal claims that “Samsung executives are debating the foldable phone’s favour,” and “Samsung Flex” and “Galaxy Flex” are two names being tossed here.

There are more S10 rumors: Evan Blass shared a few S10 tidbits earlier this month, imagining that, instead of a notch, the S10 would use a “hole punch” front camera cutout. We cognizant of Samsung is working on this style of display—it showed off the “Infinity-O” hole auger screen design at its recent developer conference, so that sounds delight in a good fit. Blass also says the device will have an ultrasonic fingerprint reader, which, again, we recognize the company is working on with Qualcomm. The Galaxy S series is usually the vanguard for the new Qualcomm break in, which, rumor has it, is called the Snapdragon 8150.

2019 definitely sounds like the year of the “more is myriad” approach from Samsung. With sales on the decline, surely one of these five fashions will be a hit in the market. Right?
