Samsung Has a 6.7-inch Galaxy S10 With 5G and 7 Cameras

Posted on February 20, 2019 by Mehedi Hassan in Android, Hardware with 13 Comments

Samsung already launched the new Galaxy Fold, the Galaxy S10 and the S10+, the Galaxy S10e. Not enough? Meet the Galaxy S10 5G.

The company is making a gigantic version of the Galaxy S10 with a huge 6.7-inch display compared to the regular S10+’s 6.4-inch display. The device also comes with a 4,500mAh battery compared to the S10 Plus’ 4,500mAh battery. And to make sure that doesn’t take ages to charge up, you will get 25W Super Fast Charging that will allow you to charge the device quickly. Like the regular S10 models, you will also be able to use Wireless PowerShare, or reverse wireless charging, to charge other devices using the S10 5G.

But more importantly, the main feature of the S10 5G is the 5G connectivity, of course. “With Galaxy S10 5G, consumers on a 5G network can download a full season of a TV show in minutes, play graphics-rich cloud games with virtually no lag, enjoy enhanced VR and AR experiences and stay in touch with friends and family via real-time 4K video calls,” Samsung said.

The device also comes with two additional cameras for 3D-image capturing, allowing for features like Video Live Focus and Quick Measure. That means the S10 comes with a total of 7 cameras (3 on the front, 4 on the back).

Internally, you are getting the Snapdragon 855, up to 7GB of RAM, and up to 256GB of storage. It does not come with expandable microSD storage, or the option to get 12GB RAM or 1TGB of storage that you get on the S10 Plus, however.

Samsung is yet to officially announce the pricing and availability of the device.

    Why is everyone hell-bent on making ridiculously large phones? I can't carry these things around, much less use them one-handed. This is just frustrating. I have a Surface Pro for use when I need a large screen.

      Yep! and 17 different chargers to juggle on top of 17 different devices and a bag that weighs 75 lbs versus 1 device, 1 charger, and 1 lb? I am pretty sure that the idea here is convenience and ease of use. No juggling 17 devices! That being said, I do believe that the price tag is insane and wouldn't buy one until the price nears $1,000. In a few years, the pricing on this new category of phones will drop a lot. :)

      I still miss the NOKIA Lumia 1520. Well not actually, but the difference in phone width/resolution between the 1520 and the S9+ has made a VERY steep learning curve for typing on the latter.


      Anyway, I love big phones with big screens. Then again, I also carry it in my jacket pocket or fanny pack as I hate putting things in my pants pockets. Now if we could just get Manufacturers to bring back slide-out physical keyboards...

    5G radiation is a health hazard. When is the tech news media going to focus on this problem now that hand sets are arriving? The liability issues from this for companies like Samsung could be bigger than Asbestos. Now that’s a story worth writing!

    This is just getting silly. Even razor manufacturers have given up on the blade count approach.

    Why would a phone be packed with 12gb of RAM?

    Are you running Photoshop or what?!

      Since there is no Photoshop for Blandroid yet (Adobe is though contemplating developing for the hapless Blandroid platform after it reviews the success with their initial currently-in-development iØS port), the only compelling reason is for the next generation of p0rn – in 8k and 4k VR.


      It may appear my comment is ridiculous, however all technological advances are abused in ways the developers, engineers, visionaries had never anticipated.


      The WWW is a great example of the rife abuse that takes place, not too mention the diseased state of both Fakebook and Instagratification.


      However should a Surface Foldable™ be eventually released, 12 GB of RAM would be greatly appreciated.

    Typo with the battery stuff?
