Samsung to launch these Galaxy flagship smartphones in early 2019

Thanks to several leaks and rumors, we know Samsung is gearing up to launch its 10-anniversary Galaxy S10 in early 2019.

This annual upgrade will see an all-new design with bigger screens, more cameras, and a revamped software experience.

But alongside S10, Samsung will also launch a 5G-compatible S10 and its first foldable phone.

Here's what Samsung is trying to keep secret for now.

Codenamed "Beyond X", this variant will pack a total of six cameras, a massive 6.7-inch display, a built-in 5G wireless chip, and support reverse wireless charging.

Further, the flagship will come with a significantly bigger battery to power the biggest Samsung mobile display and support the 5G modem.

Earlier, it was reported that Samsung is "in talks with Verizon Communications" to launch S10 in the US with a fifth-generation wireless chipset. This suggests S10 will support the recently announced Exynos Modem 5100, designed to deliver 2Gbps (maximum) downlink speed and support existing networks.
