Samsung unveils new camera sensors as though right on cue for the Galaxy S10

So, why the past few years have all been about notched displays thanks to the iPhone X - 2019 could be all about the foldable smartphone.

So far, the company hasn't decided what the final product would look like, but are working on more than one prototype. And removing the headphone jack might result in loss of customers for Samsung as many people around the world also didn't like this move by Apple. The camera setup also includes AI (artificial intelligence) capabilities.

Expected specifications of Samsung Galaxy S10 and Galaxy S10+. If the rumors are accurate, we should expect a pretty significant overhaul in the Galaxy S10 line-up that could see the adoption of new technologies, next-gen specs, and a futuristic design. That report could not confirm whether the "F" stands for foldable, but it's the name that makes the most sense for Samsung's foldable flagship.

According to earlier leaks, closed users will be available in 4 inches display, which is enough to perform basic functions without opening the smartphone, such as mail and messaging.

Samsung may follow in the footsteps of Vivo and Huawei to incorporate an in-screen fingerprint scanner, something which would make sense if the full-screen rumours are true. Rumors have it that the Galaxy F may carry an inbuilt storage of 512 GB. However, the screen would be protected at all times and the device would be thinner and cheaper to produce. The South Korean company's first foldable phone is expected to get showcased behind closed doors for select audience including investors. But while those details can't be confirmed right now, we do have an indication of what Samsung may call the phone's screen. Two things. First, this Samsung phone is powered by Android Go. The small space between them will prevent damage from drops. The two displays will be connected by a hinge with a gear to avoid damages by folding slowly. Let's just hope they don't push the price ceiling to $2,000 for a phone...

Samsung says that production of these sensors will start fourth quarter this year.
