Samsung unveils Galaxy S10 5G and Galaxy Fold along with Galaxy S10 family

Samsung has unveiled a foldable smartphone – the Galaxy Fold – alongside a 5G Galaxy S10 handset and three other Galaxy S10 mobiles.

South Korean technology giant Samsung launched the tenth edition of flagship Galaxy S Series smartphones at its “Galaxy Unpacked Event” in San Francisco.

The company launched three variants of Galaxy S smartphone – Galaxy S10, Galaxy S10+ and Galaxy S10e.

Alongside the S10 Flagships Samsung also unveiled its first flagship 5G phone as part of its Galaxy S10 lineup and a folding smartphone – Samsung Fold.

Samsung’s first 5G phone : Galaxy S10 5G

Samsung-Galaxy-S10-5G-Verizon

The S10 5G model will be the first mainstream device to run on super-fast 5G wireless networks later this year.

The device could give Samsung a big head start in early 5G markets. Apple isn’t expected to have a 5G phone until the last quarter of 2020.

Samsung says the 5G phone will have “hyper fast speeds” and “forever change the way we consume content,” such as downloading movies at ultra-quick speeds.

But the 5G network is still in its early stages, which may limit how much you can do with the device. Analysts say full-scale coverage, like we currently have with 4G, is still years away.

With a 6.7-inch, 505ppi AMOLED Infinity-O display, it’s the largest of the Galaxy S10 lineup. It includes a quartet of rear cameras. It has the same telephoto, wide-angle and ultra wide lenses as the S10 and S10+, as well as one for 3D depth sensing. You’ll be able to add background blur to your videos in real-time with all those lenses. On the other side, there’s a front-facing camera, along with a 3D depth sensing lens. The S10 5G has 8 GB of RAM and an eight-core processor, while a fingerprint scanner is built into the display.

The battery has a larger capacity than the other S10s too — 4,500mAh compared with 4,100mAh in the S10+ and the S10’s 3,400mAh. The handset also supports super-fast, 25W charging, and lets you wirelessly charge a second device by placing it against the phone. Like its siblings, the S10 5G supports WiFi 6.

Galaxy Fold : A foldable phone that morphs into a tablet

Galaxy-Fold

Samsung unveiled the Galaxy Fold, a phone that bends into a tablet. When its folded, the phone has a 4.6 inch display. Once it’s opened, it boasts a 7.3 inch screen.It has two batteries, one on each side of the device, and six cameras.

When using an app like Google Maps on the smaller screen, you can open it up to see a bigger more detailed version of the map.

The device lets you multi-task on the bigger screen. Users can do things like text friends, search for something on Google and watch a YouTube video simultaneously.

The Fold will go on sale in just over two months time, earlier than many expected.

Available on April 26 for a starting price of an eye-popping $1,980, the newest Galaxy features a 4.6-inch display when closed and a 7.3-inch display when opened.

The Galaxy Fold will be offered in four color options: black, green, silver and blue.

The device packs six cameras – three on the back, two on the inside and one on the front, as well as 512 GB of storage and 12 GB of RAM. The Galaxy Fold will come packed with a 4,380 mAh battery.

A 4G version of the Galaxy Fold is set to go on sale on April 26 and will start at $1,980 (£1,515). A more expensive 5G edition was also promised. Samsung described it as being a “luxury” item.
