Samsung accidentally leaked four different versions of the Galaxy S10
Samsung has a lot of work to do to get smartphone users excited about its flagship smartphones again, but we think the company is definitely up to the task. In fact, the turnaround might start sooner than everyone thinks. 2018 has been an uninspired year for the world’s top smartphone vendor. The company’s new Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ were met by yawns when they hit store shelves earlier this year, and they’re on track to be Samsung’s worst-selling Galaxy S phones since 2012. They’re not bad phones at all. In fact, to this day they’re still among the fastest, sleekest, and most powerful Android phones in the world. But they’re also among the most boring Android phones in the world, sporting a look that’s the same as last year’s Galaxy S8 phones and no new features that might compel people to upgrade. Then the Galaxy Note 9 followed the same model, though it added at least one new feature that people found a bit intriguing — a new S Pen with built-in Bluetooth. Of course, a neat new stylus might not be enough to get people to cough up the cash for Samsung’s most expensive flagship phone ever.
Thankfully, next year’s Samsung flagship phone lineup will be a much-needed breath of fresh air. And it all starts later this year, when Samsung plans to give the world a preview of its first smartphone to feature a foldable display. We’re as eager as anyone else to check it out, but we’re also not terribly excited about its release. Why? Because word on the street is the foldable “Galaxy F” will launch in limited supply with a price tag approaching $2,000. There’s another upcoming new Samsung smartphone we’re far more excited about, and new a new leak offers additional details about the upcoming Galaxy S10.
