New Galaxy S10 leak brings the exciting news we’ve been waiting for
Not to keep beating a dead horse, but we have every indication that Samsung’s flagship Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ smartphones have been quite disappointing thus far. The phones themselves are fantastic, as anyone who has one will confirm. We also sang them high praise in our in-depth Galaxy S9 review. The design is sleek, albeit familiar, but the performance is outstanding and the camera is one of the best we’ve ever seen. Samsung has undoubtedly sold plenty of Galaxy S9 and S9+ phones since they were released, but sales seemingly haven’t lived up to the company’s expectations or to analysts’ expectations. We’ve seen numerous reports that sales have been disappointing so far, but all the evidence we needed to see was the fact that major wireless carriers in the United States slashed Galaxy S9 and S9+ prices just one month after the phones were released. Ouch.
Attention had initially turned to the Galaxy Note 9 expected to launch this coming August in the hopes that it might have some exciting new features to offer. Sadly, those hopes may have been extinguished last week. The Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ feature designs that are nearly identical to their predecessors, and the Note 9 is expected to follow suit. Some reports suggested the phone might include at least one novel new feature to compensate for its familiar design, but then we learned last week from a solid source that won’t be the case. It’s certainly disappointing for Samsung fans, but we have some good news: A new report suggests the hotly anticipated new Galaxy S10 will include the exciting new feature everyone has been waiting for.
