It seems like the Samsung Galaxy S10 is yet again making headlines as new reports emerge. According to a new leak that has appeared on Weibo, the Samsung Galaxy S10 is said to come in four variants as opposed to the three we reported earlier. What’s interesting is that each of the four variants tops each another off for their RAM capacity.
The new four variants said to be a part of the S10 family are the Samsung Galaxy S10, S10 Plus, S10 X and S10 X 5G. As horrendous they sound, each one is in some way or form above one another.
The report sourced from Weibo suggests that Samsung is planning to top off the Galaxy S10 X 5G with up to 12GB RAM. In addition to that, the Galaxy S10 Lite is nowhere to be seen as initial rumors suggested. The Samsung Galaxy S10, S10 Plus, S10 X and S10 X 5G are said to come with 4GB, 6GB, 8GB, and 12GB LPDDR4X RAM, respectively, and would launch in March 2019.
Given that Xiaomi has become the first brand to tip off 5G capabilities with the Xiaomi Mi MiX 3 and has also become the first brand to feature 10GB RAM in 2018, 2019 would surely be the time for brands like Samsung and OnePlus to follow suit as they launch their fleet of devices, namely, the Galaxy S10 and the OnePlus 7.
Given that the Galaxy S10 would undoubtedly be the biggest launch from the Korean company to date, there’s a ton of expectation Samsung has to beat in order to keep itself on top of the Android market for more than a while as Huawei closes in with their P30 shortly after. With the announcement of 5G and 12GB of RAM, Samsung would certainly be on track to deliver on the promises and expectations the tech community is thrilled to uncover. Furthermore, given that Samsung has teased new display tech, that’s inevitably going to power the S10 range of devices, we’re expecting Samsung to power a bezel-free display without a horrid notch.
Considering that a ton of leaks from Weibo aren’t completely true, there are a few things that bug us. First, if Samsung were to launch the Galaxy S10, S10 Plus, S10 X and S10 X 5G, Samsung would most probably stay away from naming them as the above rumors suggest as these names are definitely a mouthful and aren’t as pleasing as the usual names Samsung often uses. In addition to that, given that Xiaomi has beat everyone to the 5G race (sort of), it would be an utter mess if Samsung would fail to deliver at least basic 5G capabilities on the Galaxy S10 Plus and S10 X months after Xiaomi introduces it, not to mention the measly 4GB RAM on the S10.
