Samsung has begun Galaxy S10 mass production
Date: 31 January 2019
On the 25th of January Samsung began mass production of its Galaxy S10 flagship. An insider speaking to The Investor states that all three of the Galaxy S10 models will sport in-display fingerprint readers. The 6.1” and 6.4” phones will use a Qualcomm-developed ultrasonic reader while the 5.8” one will use an optical reader.
The medium-sized and large Galaxy S10 will feature curved screens and they will be shipped with pre-installed screen protectors. This is rather helpful on Samsung's part, as protectors for curved screens are rather expensive and quite tricky to put on.
Mass production of the 5G-enabled Galaxy S10 X and the foldable Galaxy will begin later and will be done at Samsung’s Gumi plant. The source doubted that the foldable phone will be relatively successful, mainly because of its high price.
The 4G trio of Galaxy S10 phones will be debuted on February 20 (less than a week before the start of the MWC 2019) and the foldable phone will join them on stage as will the 5G model. However, it will be a while before those will be available in the market while the 4G models are expected as soon as March 9.
