Samsung’s Galaxy Note 10 might have a huge upgrade we didn’t see coming
2018 saw Samsung release three of most boring flagship smartphones we’ve seen in years, and 2019 was supposed to be a complete reversal for the world’s top smartphone vendor. So far, however, things have been mixed. Samsung started out very strong in 2019, releasing three remarkable new smartphones that make up the Galaxy S10 series. The Galaxy S9 series phones had the same design as their predecessors and no compelling new features at all, but the Galaxy S10e, Galaxy S10, and Galaxy S10+ were fresh and new, inside and out. Android fans loved Samsung’s new all-screen design and the big camera upgrade, and sales have reportedly been quite strong so far.
After knocking it out of the park with the Galaxy S10 series, Samsung completely whiffed with its new Galaxy Fold smartphone. Even if we completely disregard the fact that it was a piece of junk and the release had to be delayed while Samsung figures out how to make it less of a piece of junk, the design of Samsung’s first foldable smartphone is horrible. Both screens are surrounded by massive bezels, there’s a huge notch bitten out of the top-right corner of the main display, and you can see a big crease down the middle of the screen while you use the phone. It’s a $2,000 embarrassment.
