Samsung Galaxy S10 will look better than the Huawei P20, DJ Koh suggests

Will also launch in green

As far as smartphone design goes, this year has elicited only groans and sighs. Most companies have sadly evolved into one standard so far — the notch. With a bunch more notched phones coming up, we won’t see a new design innovation for a while.

Thankfully, a few stalwart brands have remained vigilant against the rising tide of monotony. Among these, Samsung has established its own identity amidst the mire. First and foremost, the Korean brand has continuously refused the vapid trends that Apple has introduced — notches and audio jack removals, to be specific.

Maintaining this position, Samsung already has tricks up its sleeve for next year’s batch of Galaxy phones.

In a recent statement to the Chinese media, Samsung CEO DJ Koh has announced significant changes to their phone’s looks in 2019. Further, he confirms that a new color will launch next year.

Following Samsung’s release schedule, this development is hardly a surprise. The company usually releases defining design upgrades every other year. The last major upgrade belonged to the Galaxy S8. With that, the next upgrade should happen next year.

However, the bigger surprise lies with the media who attended Samsung’s conference. For one, renowned leaker Ice Universe has added information about Koh’s statement.

First, the account claims that Samsung’s major upgrades are “more beautiful than the gradient.” By now, we all know the gradient’s most headstrong proponent — the Huawei P20 series. Currently, the series belongs to this year’s top tier of most beautiful smartphones. In itself, this statement is a bold claim.

Secondly, Ice Universe also names Samsung’s “new color.” Besides the traditional colors, Samsung will also release a green variant. Now, for astute observers, green isn’t exactly a new color for Samsung. Years ago, Samsung released a limited-edition Emerald Green variant for the Galaxy S6 Edge. If anything, this is the first time that green will make it to the main lineup.

This early into the game, details on Samsung’s new phones remain rudimentary, at best. Stay tuned for more details as they roll out!

Samsung Galaxy S10 Hands-On

Does it live up to the hype?

Infinity-O Display, five cameras, in-display fingerprint reader, next-generation wireless charging: these four features define Samsung’s new Galaxy S10.

When you take its features apart like this, it makes it seem like what we have is yet another underwhelming phone with no new groundbreaking feature. But to look at the S10 that way does the phone an injustice. It’s one that needs to be taken as a whole, not a sum of its parts.
