Samsung Galaxy S10 may drop the headphone jack

Samsung's folding phone WILL go on sale next year along with a notchless Galaxy S10 Samsung planning three Galaxy S10 variants, one foldable phone for 2019

Citing people familiar with the matter, the publication adds that the South Korean company is already in talks with Verizon to launch its Galaxy S10 in the USA with a 5G wireless chipset, that will allow Samsung to secure support from the biggest US carrier in promoting the new wireless technology standard.

Far less uncertain are Samsung's plans about the S10, which the report claims will have a 5.8-inch OLED screen curved on both sides - just like all recent Galaxy S phones - almost no bezel on top and bottom, and round-shaped corners. That, according to Bloomberg, will allow Samsung to make bezels even smaller, fitting a similar 5.8-inch display to the Galaxy S9 into a smaller body. While there really wasn't any new information to be found in Bloomberg's report, it's always nice to see more confirmation of the details surrounding the hotly anticipated Galaxy S10 and the upcoming new Galaxy F flagship phone with a foldable OLED display.

The cheaper version of the Galaxy S10 will lack the dual-curved edge display design that was first seen on the Galaxy Note Edge in 2014. Bloomberg reports that Samsung is debating between two prototypes ahead of final release: one that is horizontally longer and the other vertically longer when unfolded. The bendable display, however, does not have an embedded fingerprint sensor due to technical difficulties.

The foldable-screen device is codenamed "Winner" and has been under development for years, the people said. Last month, CEO DJ Koh told ZDNet sister site CNET that consumers would use the foldable device as a tablet with multitasking capability and then fold it into a more portable phone.

Israel pummels Gaza with airstrikes through night in response to rocket attack
On Friday, the IDF targeted three Hamas military posts in northern Gaza, part of the buildup to the escalation of the evening. The sides have fought three wars since Hamas seized control of Gaza in 2007.

The device would take after the once-popular Motorola Razr, featuring a screen that opens with a snap.

Apart from engineering difficulties, Samsung is also addressing software issues by closely working with Google.

The hinge for this folding phone has already passed internal tests of folding more than 2,00,000 times but there are still questions related to its yield rate in mass production. Samsung may not be able to launch it commercially until the second quarter, another person said.

The entry-level Samsung Galaxy S10 may come with just 4GB of RAM and the Galaxy S10 Plus might ship with 6GB of memory. This will be its first 5G capable phone to challenge its rivals in the Chinese market.
