What to expect from the next Galaxy

If you’d like a better idea of what Samsung might have in store for us, here’s what the rest of the tech press predicts. Remember, these are just rumours at the moment. And as you’ll see, not everyone agrees with each other – especially when it comes to camera numbers.

What is the release date of the next Galaxy?

“Samsung is not expected to deviate from its traditional MWC Unpacked event in 2019. The new Galaxy will likely be announced the day before the show begins, putting its release date at Sunday 24 February 2019.” Tech Advisor

What kind of display will the next Galaxy have?

“One rumour, from leaker Ice Universe, suggests that Samsung will up the resolution this time around, potentially pushing past the QHD+.” Stuff TV

How many cameras will the next Galaxy have?

“These rumours of extra cameras are also seemingly backed up by phone industry analysts. KBI Securities’ Kim Dong-won says that Samsung plans to reinvigorate its business by adding a triple lens camera to the new Galaxy.” T3

“A report in early October seems to confirm that Samsung will be offering triple rear cameras. But why stop with just three rear lenses? The Bell reports that Samsung might add a second front lens, all the better for supporting Portrait Mode effects on selfies. That would give the phone five cameras in total.” Tom’s Guide

“Samsung's reportedly planning at least one version of the device with six cameras.” Pocket-lint

What will the next Galaxy look like?

“According to Samsung's mobile business chief, DJ Koh, the next Galaxy will have some ‘very significant’ design changes and come in some ‘amazing’ colours. One leak from OnLeaks suggests those colours may be Black, Grey, Blue, Red, Green and Yellow.” Tech Radar

“The new Galaxy phone is expected to have a screen-to-body ratio of 93%, which is significantly higher than the S9’s 83.6%.” Tech Advisor

“It'll supposedly have ‘almost no bezel’ on the top and bottom of the phone. The front camera is also said to be ‘tucked’ underneath the display, which could mean that Samsung found a way to hide the front-facing selfie cameras and sensors underneath the display, thus eliminating the need for a notch.” Business Insider UK
