Samsung's 2019 flagships are certified by the FCC

Samsung's 2019 flagships are certified by the FCC
On February 20th, Samsung will unveil its 2019 flagship phones during the Samsung Unpacked event. The phones are expected to be released on March 8th. With that in mind, all three handsets were recently certified by the FCC (via Droid-Life). The models approved by the agency include the SM-G970U, SM-G973U, and SM-G975U. In order, these are the "lite" Samsung Galaxy S10E, the Samsung Galaxy S10 and the Samsung Galaxy S10+.

The documentation reveals where the FCC sticker will be located on these models (see image above the article) and confirms that these phones will come with Bluetooth LE, NFC, and MST. The latter is the Magnetic Secure Transmission platform that allows Samsung Pay to work in stores not equipped with NFC point-of-sale checkout technology.

According to the data, Samsung's 2019 flagships will support Wi-Fi6 (802.11ax). The latest Wi-Fi technology will consume less battery power and offer faster speeds. And a chart included in the FCC documentation shows that Samsung's 2019 flagships will support all of the major 4G LTE bands used by the big four major U.S. carriers. As if there was a doubt.

Late updates, no SD 855 for most of the world, no ufs 3.0 and ddr5 ram. I'll wait for the pixel 4, it will have an SD 855, stock ui with much better performance, fastest updates and 3 year update support, will probably have ufs 3.0, maybe ddr5 ram as well, hopefully, if google nails the pixel this time its gonna be the best and most exciting flagship phone of the year, of course the price will be a problem tho, but they always give discounts so its best to wait for one and buy it then.

There won't be ufs 3 or ddr5 until 2020 Ufs won't enter mass production for a while . LpDdr5 spec as far as I know isnt even finalized

One plus 7 already was spotted with ufs 3.0 a while ago, ufs 3.0 will enter mass production soon but not in time for the s10 which is why it won't have it sadly.

Good thing you have choices. Feel free to buy any of those devices that barely sell but will supposedly have much better specs

And some other phone launched later than OnePlus xx will be better!

After 3 years of updates the Pixel 4 might have the feature set of the S10.

Hopefully, you will get the device of your choice and feel good about it. Pixel 4, DDR5 RAM, UFS 3.0, fastest updates and 3 year update support!

Imagine if the pixel will have those specs and if google actually nails the design and the software this time, the pixel 4 has potential to be the best phone of 2019 by far.

Imagination has no end. It's good to live the reality. When there is so much uncertainty, why can't we look forward to what Samsung has in store now? It's granted devices that follow will trump it or try their best. The price a flagship commands is already under scrutiny (which even you are not comfortable with) but it's just humorous to see comment about a future Pixel (still far away from release) in a soon to be launched Samsung article. What should one do at the Pixel 4 launch? Samsung or OnePlus or xyz will trump it? Please decide appropriately.
