Samsung is scheduled to take the covers off the Galaxy S9 at a dedicated event in Barcelona on February 25 – but that hasn’t stopped information from seeping out about the handset’s successor, the Galaxy S10, which is tipped to hit the shelves sometime in 2019.
Weibo tipster Ice Universe, who has an astonishing track record when it comes to retrieving sensitive information from within Samsung’s HQ, has revealed that the Galaxy S10 will be headlined by an all-new Infinity Display that touts an impressive screen-to-body ratio of 93% – up from the 83.6% found on the Galaxy S8.
It will also come with a refreshed Samsung-made Exynos chipset in Asia, Africa, Europe and the Middle East, and will offer support out of the box for UFS 3.0 – a standard of Univeral Flash Storage (UFS) that’s twice as fast as UFS 2.0, the storage solution found on most modern smartphones, including the iPhone X – and 5G.

In addition, Samsung is said to be betting big on 3D tech with the Galaxy S10. Ice Universe noted that the device will feature a Neural Processing Unit (NPU) that will handle all of the AI and 3D processing required for an Anomoji-like feature and facial recognition, leaving the CPU free to handle more straightforward tasks.
Seeing as the handset won’t arrive until 2019, information surrounding it is sparse – so we can’t corroborate the details the tipster has uncovered. We should hear some more chatter about the handset later in the year, however – and that’s when we’ll be able to paint a much clearer picture of what Samsung’s working on.
For now, though, let’s focus on the Galaxy S9.
