Samsung S10 to Come with 3D Sensing Camera Like iPhone X
This new report about the leak of Samsung S 10 seems to carry accurate prediction, because Namuga is not only one of Samsung‘s camera module suppliers but also directly supplies 3D-sensing modules for Intel’s RealSense AR cameras, while Mantis Vision also specialises in 3D-mapping technologies.
KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo has claimed that Android smartphone makers would take up to two and a half years to catch up with Face ID. However, Apple released the iPhone X in November-2017, and the Galaxy S10 will likely be released around March or April of 2019, approximately a period of one-and-a-half year.
It has been also rumored that the Samsung Galaxy S10 will be the first smartphone to support super-fast 5G. Weibo user ‘Ice Universe’, who has a pretty good track record in leaking sensitive Samsung tidbits, has leaked that the Galaxy S10 will be the first smartphone to support 5G. This leak seems quite accurate about S10, because Qualcomm and Samsung have recently announced a ‘strategic relationship’ agreement, which specifically mentions the “transition to 5G“.
So the Galaxy S10 users would be able to benefit from the faster internet speeds that 5G will provide. It is also rumored that Galaxy S10 will Power with Qualcomm Snapdragon 855. That will definitely bring the expected improved performance and better efficiency over Qualcomm’s current chipset.
