The S10 was incredible. Here’s what Samsung’s doing to improve for 2020.
Samsung’s Galaxy S series is always one of the most anticipated smartphone releases year after year. Following a modest upgrade with the S9 series, 2019’s Galaxy S10 lineup shook things up with an all-new Infinity-O design for the display, triple rear cameras, and even a third “budget” model.

The Galaxy S8 was delayed a few years ago because of the Note 7’s battery recall, and the Galaxy S10 preceded the trade show by a couple of weeks last year so Samsung could be the world’s first major smartphone maker to unveil a foldable handset. A report a few days ago said that Samsung has settled on February 18th for the Galaxy S11 Unpacked event, claiming that the next-gen Samsung foldable would also be unveiled at the show — that’s [...]
