As of now, it may be safe to conclude that the company will go on with the 3.5mm jack as far as the three main Galaxy S10 variants are concerned.
This information comes from a Gizmodo report, based on an unnamed but known source from "a major tech retailer". The feature will be called Powershare, which will allow the device to charge other devices wirelessly. However, it looks like fans would be getting answers sooner than later because Samsung is aiming to introduce the new Galaxy S series at the CES trade show in January and release them shortly after.
This year's current flagship device, the Samsung Galaxy S9, was revealed at MWC on February 25. There will be three devices: a 5.8-inch Galaxy S10 Lite with a flat display, a 6.1-inch Galaxy S10 with curved Super AMOLED screen, and a larger Galaxy S10 Plus with 6.4-inch Super AMOLED display. Last but not least, there is one more variant of Samsung Galaxy S10 Plus which will come with 1 TB of storage and will retail at £1399.
Samsung's blockchain aspirations should be taken with a generous amount of skepticism, as cryptocurrency website Cointelgraph reports that a Samsung representative declined comment on the report, calling it "rumour and speculation".
As we suspected, there'll be no iris scanner on the S10: no news on updated facial recognition, though. The Galaxy S10 will have a screen size of 6.1-inch, and, the Galaxy S10+ will have a screen size of 6.4-inch. The most premium variant is tipped to sport an ultrasonic fingerprint sensor, while the cheapest variant may mount it on the side edges.
The latest debut by Samsung, the Galaxy A8s is the new phone which features the much talked about Infinity-O display. On the back, a previous leak suggested that there will be a three-camera array, featuring a wide angle and telephoto lens, but this is not confirmed. It will only have a storage option of 128GB. Adnan Farooqui, the senior executive editor at SamMobile, was quoted as saying that "after hearing about the trademarks for Samsung's blockchain and cryptocurrency software, we made a decision to dig around a little deeper".
