Samsung Galaxy S10 could frustrate Huawei management by taking a huge Mate 20 Pro feature


Galaxy S10 rumours have been heating up in recent weeks with many predicting the device will present a huge divergence from its predecessors both aesthetically and internally.

The Samsung flagship is expected to debut at the start of next year.

The South Korean tech giant typically unveils the next-generation of its S-line of devices at Mobile World Congress (MWC), an annual technology show taking place in Barcelona, in February.

A recent report from Bloomberg, that cited people familiar with the firm’s product plans, insisted the Galaxy S10 will break from recent Samsung tradition by releasing in three models.
The first two are presumed to be standard and Plus models while the third was said to be a more affordable version of the flagship.
It was added the hardware is expected to forgo some premium features in order to lower its price tag.

One notable difference between the cheaper S10 and the “standard” model was claimed to be in regard to its display.

The regular S10 was said to feature a signature Samsung OLED panel with curved edges, however the more affordable flagship was touted to come with a flat screen instead.

The code-names for each of the devices is understood to be “Beyond 0”, “Beyond 1” and “Beyond 2” respectively.

But more recently the Wall Street Journal declared a “top secret” fourth version of the Galaxy S10 will debut and has the code-name “Beyond X”.

The outlet suggested the fourth variant will be the most premium version of the flagship.

Such a device will come with a colossal 6.7-inch display, six cameras and be equipped to support 5G network speeds, it was claimed.

But most importantly the Journal stated this version of the device will arrive with wireless reverse charging, meaning the Galaxy S10 will be able to power other devices that are placed on its rear panel.

The Huawei Mate 20 Pro released last month and was capable of performing such a function.

While the feature is certainly more of a party trick than something users would take advantage of on a regular basis, it remains one of the Mate 20 Pro’s most unique tools.

However, if the latest report from the Wall Street Journal is correct, it appears the Mate 20 Pro will not have the feature exclusively for long.

Samsung is expected to lift the lid on its Galaxy S10 flagship in February.
