2019 is an odd yr for smartphones. The most anticipated fashions are not price upgrading to and the Galaxy Word 10 dangers falling into that bracket. Furthermore, Samsung simply made this worse.
In a brand new press launch, Samsung has introduced the mass manufacturing of recent LPDDR5 smartphone reminiscence which is 30% sooner and 30% extra environment friendly than something available on the market. It even goes on sale a month earlier than the Galaxy Word 10 launches. The issue? It received’t be contained in the Word 10.
The ever-reliable WinFuture reveals Samsung’s new RAM is incompatible Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 855 and 855+ chipsets (the Word 10 is predicted to make use of the previous) and is as an alternative designed for the 865 which is headed for the Galaxy S11. A smartphone already being teased as “a brand new starting” for Samsung.
And that is the issue with the Word 10’s timing. It launches in August, simply three months earlier than Qualcomm unveils its next-generation chipsets so it spends a lot of its life a step behind the Galaxy S vary which launches in February/March. It’s the identical downside which can hit Google’s Pixel 4.
In its favour, Samsung will equip the Galaxy Word 10 with dramatically sooner charging (however solely as an non-obligatory further) and a crowd-pleasing new design. The issue is Samsung can also be seeking to give the Word 10 some unenviable firsts: the primary Galaxy flagship with out a headphone jack (which the FCC sadly confirmed) and there are additionally studies it’s going to lose expandable storage.
After all, what retains Word followers coming again is the vary’s iconic S Pen, however stripping away different differentiators appears a poor resolution on Samsung’s half – particularly contemplating the eye-watering worth hike and introduction of a Plus mannequin. Hardcore followers will stick round however, at this level, I might counsel else waits for the brand new starting to start out.
