An image that would seem official reveals some details of the Galaxy S10 E, the low cost that Samsung will present in late February. Doubts about the unlock
It would be three smartphones that Samsung will launch from February, one of which will be a new entry level that will be called Galaxy S10 E and with an affordable price. In short, no Galaxy S10 Lite as had been rumored so far, but the specifications of the low cost smartphone Samsung would seem confirmed.
The other two smartphones will be called Samsung Galaxy S10 and Samsung Galaxy S10 +. To reveal it is the blog SamMobile that cites as a source a Chinese supplier of Samsung that would have received a smartphone Samsung Galaxy E to test the protection of the display. A source, however, who wants to remain anonymous.
Features Galaxy S10 E
According to the supplier, moreover, this cheap Galaxy will not have a fingerprint reader integrated into the display, which will have a size of 5.8 inches against the 6.1 inches of the Galaxy S10 and the 6.4 inches of the Galaxy S10 +. Previously, there had been speculation that the Galaxy S10 Lite/E would have a fingerprint reader located at the back, but the renders circulated so far do not show fingerprint sensors at the back of the three future smartphones.
The Galaxy S10 E will also have a different and lower-performing camera. The Galaxy S10 E's display will also be flat and not curved like its bigger brothers, but it will still be an Infinity-O screen. This means, however, that it will not have an iris reader and the simultaneous lack of a fingerprint reader leaves more than one doubt about the possible methods of unlocking this entry level terminal from Samsung. On this precise technical aspect, therefore, any information could be denied or confirmed.
When will the Galaxy S10 be presented?
As far as we know at the moment, the Galaxy S10 family should be made official by Samsung during a specific event in San Francisco before the end of February, when the Mobile World Congress 2019 in Barcelona will be held instead. A variant of the Galaxy S10 is also expected to feature 5G connectivity and a 5,000 mAh battery instead of the regular 3,500 mAh one. The Galaxy S10 E, on the other hand, is expected to mount a 3,100 mAh battery and will not be available in a 5G version.
From a leak coming from the Geekbench benchmark platform, which smartphone manufacturers use to test the performance of their devices, news emerges instead that the Galaxy S10 will feature a Snapdragon 855 processor and 6GB of RAM in the U.S. version, while in Europe it will be sold with an Exynos 9820 processor, similar in performance and specifications.
