The Samsung Galaxy S10 is shaping up to be a “very significant” 10th-anniversary phone. We already know it will feature an all-new design, ’ultrasonic’ in-display reader, triple rear cameras, gradient colors, 5G and a new budget-friendly version. And now Samsung itself had bragged about arguably its most crowd-pleasing feature…
Picked up by popular UK tech site T3, Samsung Mobile US has displayed a quite remarkable level of confidence by choosing to publicly attack Google and, in doing so, give away its own plans for the Galaxy S10.
The attack was prompted by a tweet from the official @MadeByGoogle Twitter account formally announcing the new Pixel 3 and Pixel 3XL and inviting user feedback. To which the official Samsung Mobile US account mocked the larger model’s controversial notch replying: “You could land a plane on it”.
With Samsung due to announce the Galaxy S10 in just three months, this comment makes it 100% clear that the company has no plans to copy almost all of Apple’s rivals by releasing its phone with a notch.
Yes, Samsung has mocked the notch before, but the timing is crucial. The company previously ran a campaign after the iPhone X launch and plans can change drastically in a year. Just ask Google who mocked Apple for removing the headphone jack, before removing it from the Pixel 2XL the following year.
But Samsung would not make such a boast just a few months before a handset as important as the Galaxy S10, if it planned to copy Apple.
Moreover, during the last year, Samsung has shown it is a master of deliberate leaks and slips. The company has repeatedly ‘accidentally’ dropped details about upcoming phones via official channels and used this to build interest. And to this end, there’s more good news.
Samsung Mobile US went on to brag that, unlike the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL, its Galaxy phones offer expandable storage. So that all-but-guarantees this feature will continue on the Galaxy S10 as well.
