Upcoming Samsung Galaxy S10+ would come with 5G in 2019!

Apparently, Samsung plans to launch its flagship phone 2019, the Samsung Galaxy S10+, in 4G and 5G versions separately; a measure designed to keep prices low for customers who do not have near 5G network access.

According to the South Korean publication The Bell, only the larger version of the S10 will include a 5G option; and the company will produce "a small number of 5G models" due to the incipient state of 5G networks.

As Samsung normally launches new Galaxy S-series phones at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona in February and then launches them in March, the company faces the challenge of presenting products from the beginning for a wireless network standard that will still be in the stages of launch 2019. Rivals are expected to show their first 5G phones at CES in early January; and Bell ensures that Samsung will break with tradition and announce the Galaxy S10 series there.

It remains to be seen if that is the real plan. Samsung said last month that its first 5G phone will not be the Galaxy S10; leaving open the possibility that a new 5G device will be released at CES in January; followed by the standard development of the Mobile World Congress of the Galaxy S10 series in February. There is a precedent for this ambiguity; originally it was expected that the Galaxy S9 debuted at CES 2018, but became official in Barcelona a month later.

The launch decisions of the Samsung 2019 phone are affected by competitive pressures, including its desire to always be "the first" with important technological innovations.

Upcoming Samsung Galaxy S10+ will carry a Qualcomm Snapdragon processor

It is clear at this stage that almost all of the first 5G phones will be powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon chips, which dozens of companies have been actively testing during 2018. Qualcomm recently said that 5G devices with their Snapdragon chips will probably be widely available by April 2019; and although Samsung could use its own Exynos 5G components ready to launch products before then; the demand will probably be limited to the first users in specific geographies, a small but nontrivial market.

To meet the global demand of around 40 million units per year for the Galaxy S series, Samsung will present several versions of the S10; including a basic Galaxy S10, a regular S10 and a regular S10 Plus, all with 4G LTE support. Only the S10 Plus will be offered with the option of a 5G system, which will have a higher price and will require four to five additional antennas. The company apparently expects to sell 2 million 5G phones in 2019; although it is not clear if that number is only for the Galaxy S10 Plus or includes other models.

The battery will last longer

As the 5G chips and antennas come in "millimeter wave" and "sub-6 GHz" variants, they may or may not consume additional space inside the housing of a phone; It is also unclear if the 5G version of the S10 Plus will be larger, will have a greater impact battery life; or commitment to 5G dual-mode compatibility to add new functionality.

Rival Huawei, which developed its own 5G chipset, expects 5G chips to absorb power and require substantial heat sinks. Samsung may be designing the S10 Plus chassis specifically with all 5G components in mind; leaving the 4G version with additional space in it that could be filled by a battery.

In addition to its 4G and 5G options, the Galaxy S10 Plus is expected to have a screen of approximately 6.5 inches; as well as Samsung's latest camera and processor technology. It will compete directly with Apple's 6.5-inch version of the iPhone Xs; that yesterday it received the name of iPhone Xs Max; and that almost certainly will not include a 5G option.
