Samsung traces the ten years of the series, listing the main innovations introduced from 2010 to 2018, pending the launch of the new Galaxy S10.
Samsung is preparing for the launch of the Galaxy S10. The next 20 February will be announced at least three models (Galaxy S10e, S10, and S10 +) that will represent the “tenth chapter” of a story started in 2010. The Korean manufacturer took the opportunity to list the innovations introduced with the popular series of smartphones.
Before bringing the famous Android smartphones to market, Samsung had already developed several technologies, including the LCD display for mobile devices in 2002 and the 10-megapixel camera with the B600 cell phone of 2006. The Galaxy S (2010) is the first smartphone with Super AMOLED screen (4 inches) that offered high levels of contrast and greater color fidelity compared to the competitors of the time. The Galaxy SII (2011) is instead the first in the series with a dual-core processor. The main novelty of the Galaxy SIII (2012) is the support for multitasking, thanks to which you can run two apps at the same time.
The Galaxy S4 (2013) is the first model in the series with full HD screen and smart features for interaction with smartwatches. The Galaxy S5 (2014) is the first with IP67 certification, so it could withstand a meter of water for 30 minutes. With the Galaxy S6 (2015) the famous “dual edge” screen has been introduced with curved sides (Edge and Edge + variants). With the Galaxy S7 (2016), the first Dual Pixel autofocus camera has arrived.
The Galaxy S8 (2017) is the first smartphone in the series with Infinity Display. Samsung has reduced the thickness of the frames and adopted the new aspect ratio 18.5: 9. Finally, the main novelty of the Galaxy S9 (2018) is the rear camera with a variable aperture (f / 1.5-2.4).
With the Galaxy, S10 will be introduced the Infinity-O screen with a hole in correspondence of the front camera. The manufacturer should also announce a 5G version which, however, will only be marketed in some countries, probably the United States and South Korea. During the Unpacked 2019 event on February 20, Samsung’s first folding smartphone will also be shown.
