Samsung introduced five new phones today at a big show at the Bill Graham Civic Auditorium in San Francisco (in addition to the gimmicky Galaxy Fold): S10 (6.1 "), S10 Plus (6.4 "), S10E (5.8") and S10 5G (a quick 6.7 ") – and Galaxy Fold.[…]
Samsung adheres to guns on a few fronts: fingerprints instead of face recognition and good old-fashioned headphone jacks on each model. And while they didn't spend much time showing the system software, their interaction model seemed to be still home-based rather than gesture-based.[…]
I'm not sure about the S10E, but the larger S10 models not only support wireless charging for input, but they can also act as chargers for other devices, such as wireless headphones, a Samsung watch or another phone.[…]
Second, Samsung has built Instagram in the system Camera app as
Using the new Galaxy phones (short), Samsung Apple triples the camera with 7 months, 5G and behind 3D with 1.5 years and screen design with ~ 1.5 – 2.5 years. But their software / services feel 1-2 years behind.
Under unveiling, Samsung Fold's versatility emphasized being able to transform from a regular smartphone to a tablet, just by opening it. But this device – and others like it – are bad phones, and worse tablets. Every shot of the closed phone seems to ask for it to unfold; the display looks narrow, uncomfortable and cramped. It works far better in its tablet-like configuration, but at best it is a diet version of a tablet.
People do not see the big picture here: Samsung is proving that a device with a folding screen can be mass produced. Yes, it's clunky. No, it won't be a big product first. But this is a big step forward.
Should we just take it for granted that an actual collapsible phone exists and will send next month? It could be a medium good product, but sacred shit was the dream thing when I was a child. It wasn't even CGI to fake it right.
