Earlier this week, a report surfaced online disclosing the price of the Samsung Galaxy S10 trio in the UK. The source also revealed the possibility of Samsung implementing a reverse wireless charger like the one on Huawei Mate 20 Pro and now an independent source confirms it to be true.
The new leak claims that the reverse wireless charging will feature on all the three variants of Galaxy S10, including the Lite version. The technology will be called “Powershare” but we are not so sure about its usability. The standard wireless charging is pretty slow and charging another smartphone with your smartphone will be even less effective. However, its still early to comment on it and the South Korean may have a better solution than Huawei’s Mate Pro reverse charging or it could be just another marketing gimmick.
The Samsung Galaxy S10 will be available in three variants: a regular version, a Plus version and a flat variant. It is expected to come with a Infinity-O display with a cut-out notch containing the selfie camera. The device is also touted to come with a new in-screen fingerprint scanner that uses ultrasound to read the ridges in the finger in 3D but the iris scanner is likely to be shelved.
The Lite variant of the smartphone featuring a 5.8 inch display will have 128GB storage and priced at £669. The regular curved variant of the S10 with 6.1 inch display will be offered in 128GB and 512GB RAM and will cost £799 and £999 respectively. The third model is offered in a 128GB, 512GB and 1TB storage variant costing £899, £1099 and £1399 respectively. The 1TB storage variant may be the rumoured 5G supported 6.7 inch model with six cameras considering the high price tag. From previous reports, the device will be available in 4GB, 6GB, 8GB and 12GB RAM and sport triple camera setup at the rear.
Samsung will be unveiling the Galaxy S10 series ahead of the Mobile World Congress on February 20. It will be available for pre-order from that day and will go on sale from March 8.
