Samsung Suddenly 'Confirms' Radical Galaxy S10


Yes, you should start getting excited about the Galaxy S10. Why? Because not only have leaks told us to expect an all-new design, ’ultrasonic’ in-display reader, fast updates and a true Face ID rival, now Samsung itself has confirmed this 10th-anniversary phone will be much more than a normal upgrade… 

The comments (picked up by SamMobile), come from none other than Samsung Mobile division CEO DJ Koh. Speaking to Chinese media this week, he boasted that design changes to the Galaxy S10 design will be “very significant”. And he promised a crowd-pleasing upgrade as well.

When pushed for specific details Koh declined, but his statement not only means Samsung has officially confirmed the device for the first time. It also lends considerable credence to multiple reports that Samsung will cut away almost all bezels from the phone and dramatically increase its size.

Furthermore, Koh did give away one extra titbit revealing the Galaxy S10 will be released in “amazing” colours. Given Samsung has been criticised for a) not being more adventurous with its phone finishes, and b) staggering the release of its more interesting finishes until months after launch, it seems the company has now taken this onboard.

The context to Koh’s statement is also important.

Koh was speaking in China, and Chinese brand Huawei has recently received a lot of praise for the gradient colour scheme on its P20 Pro, I suspect this means we can expect similar gradient finishes for the Galaxy S10. After all, the P20 Pro also has a well-received triple camera and supply chain leaks have all but confirmed a Galaxy S10 triple camera too.

And let us not forget, one of Samsung’s biggest strengths over the last 10 years has been the company’s ability not only to innovate itself but to recognise the popular innovations of others and bring them to market quickly.

Consequently, the Galaxy S10 is shaping up to be a veritable wishlist of fan’s biggest hopes with the only downside being the eye-watering price of the top model. And I wonder where Samsung got that idea
