Next year's affordable Galaxy S10 to come with 64GB of base storage
by Peter Kostadinov / Oct 24, 2018, 2:39 AM
Word on the street is Samsung is going to follow into Apple's footsteps and not only ditch the headphone jack from the Galaxy S10, but also release three different versions of its next flagship wares. The third Galaacy will be a toned-down device devoid of the premium features that are expected to bre present on the S10 and S10 Plus, all for cost-cutting measures.
all three of Samsung's 2019 flagship phones, including the affordable so-called 'Lite' one, which will most likely be rolling under the SM-G970x model number. The latest hearsay claims that the base storage of that one will be pegged at 64GB, which is an adequate starting tier for most phones theses days anyways.Now, we already seem to know a lot about
Also, we have no reasons to believe the microSD card slot will be removed, so data hoarders that jump on that one will likely have their options for memory expansion nonetheless. However,the rumor mill has it that the other two Galaxies, known as SM-G973x and SM-G975x, will arrive with as a whole lot of 128GB of native storage from the get-go, following right into the Galaxy Note 9's footsteps. It's yet unlcear if they'd also come with 512GB of storage.
Aside from amping up the base storage itself, the next generation of the Galaxy family is tipped to arrive with triple-camera setups and ultrasonic in-display fingerprint scanners. However, the affordable Galaxy is most certainly keeping a single camera and a rear-positioned fingerprint scanner for cost-cutting reasons - think of it as Samsung's upcoming iPhone XR.
Traditionally, we expect Samsung to announce its next flagsiphs sometime before next year's MWC trade show in Barcelona, Spain, which is set to take place February 25-28.

I'm sorry single camera on the light is pathetic. People choose the phone because of the size, giving the smaller phone much less specs is pathetic, I hate companies that do that.

I agree that it's a shame there aren't more small phones with good specs, but this isn't being positioned as a small phone, it's being positioned as a cheaper phone that happens to be smaller (probably because that saves money). Anyway, the S9 only has a single lens camera and so does the Pixel 3 range. If it's good enough then the lack of extra lenses shouldn't hold it back much.

So a 350€ Samsung Galaxy A7 comes with 128 Gb of storage, and a 600+ € Samsung Galaxy S10lite will only have 64Gb of storage? This is so wrong! If Samsung does this, then shame on them

XS cost $999 for 64GB, so? A7 and S10 specs are different, you can't just compare it.. And at least Samsung's phones have microSD slot.

Do not compare the capability of Samsung consumer to apple consumers. Apple is the only iOS. And when you say that Samsung have micro sd, that’s for now. That’s the same quite people said many years ago about replaceable batteries.

Samsung designs and manufactures SD and micro SD cards. The last flagship phone, Galaxy S6 and Note 5, without micro SD received massive backlashes especially sale wise. The company will not repeat the same mistake.

"Word on the street is Samsung is going to follow into Apple's footsteps and ... release three different versions of its next flagship forerunners" I guess we are ignoring all the years Samsung released a 3rd lite version going back to s5 if not earlier. Not to mention a third active version.

Exactly Samsung has had 3 S models for a few years. This site is SOOOOO forgetful. They will say anything to make it look like Apple did something first and others copied. When in in this case Apple copied.

At least the design looks good no notch, no chin, good.
