Possible Galaxy S10 series storage configurations emerge in new leak

Samsung Galaxy S10 and S10+ concept renders
After months of speculation, the storage configurations of Samsung’s entire Galaxy S10 lineup may have just been revealed by Max Weinbach, who cites multiple industry sources.
Commencing with the cheapest model of all, it appears as though the Galaxy S10E will be available in just one configuration. Nevertheless, it improves upon the base Galaxy S9 model by bringing 128GB of expandable storage and 4GB of RAM to the table.
Moving over to the regular Galaxy S10, its configurations will be mostly on par with last year’s Galaxy S9+ by including 6GB of RAM and giving consumers the option of either 128GB or 256GB of internal storage. The previous 64GB base model has, however, been scrapped entirely.
These exact configurations are also carried over to the larger Galaxy S10+. But in order to compete with the current-gen Galaxy Note 9, a variant with 8GB of RAM and 512GB of storage should be available to purchase.
Completing Samsung’s lineup will be the 5G Galaxy S10 model. Details about this smartphone remain pretty scarce at the minute but according to this particular leak, it’ll arrive in three configurations: 8/256GB, 8/512GB, and a top-of-the-line 1TB variant complete with 12GB of RAM.
On a side note, Samsung’s foldable smartphone also looks set to ship with 12GB of RAM and either 512GB or 1TB of internal storage.
It’s worth noting that, despite the likelihood of these configurations, the industry sources cited are yet to confirm the setups in their entirety. Because of this, the leak currently stands as a rumor and should be taken with a grain of salt.

- Camera 12 MP / 10 MP front

A cheaper 64GB would have been great, most business people do not need even 32GB of storage.

Is 8gb ram enough to get rid of lagginess? I’ve seen many androids tend to lag after a few months.

Nope that’s inherent to Android especially with Samsung’s Touchwiz on them. All the extra RAM means is that more apps will be in the background causing lag.

With One UI it may change, It defs looks cleaner and lighter then Samsung's current experience skin. Just gotta wait for long-term reviews with the final release software. And lol, people still holding onto the TouchWiz argument never tried an S8, I would say it improved over the previous software. Samsung is dedicated to improving their software every year.

My s8 is almost 2 years old, no lag and still performs as fast and fluid as the day I got it. Bare in mind I don't have 100d or apps installed and still around 40gb left of storage (64gb model + sd card)

Yeah, haters say samsung lags. lol. Say that to my blazing fast galaxy note 5. official rom (bought straight from samsung store - no carrier bloat) and nova launcher with tweaks for faster ui speed which grandmas and grandpas can also make. My next device is 99.9% the note 10. Samsung earned it. They deserve my money after a great experience (and still great) of note 5.

I had note edge, that phone doesn't lag instead it shut down every time I play asphalt 7, gangstars rio Eisenhorn xenos or any heavy games and some times it just shut down without any reason and not solved by any software update.

Bad news for the S10 lite if true. 4gb will be ok this year but will not be future proof (3 years is what I try to use my phone's for).

Just 4GB RAM on S10 E is shame

Just like what Apple does with the xr. It's meant for light users. If you want a beast, pay a little extra and get the higher ones

Lol that's funny, the difference is that the xr doesnt need more than 3gb of ram and won't lag, but Samsung phones tend to become laggy and require more ram, 6gb should be minimum, 4gb isn't enough, I was thinking about buying the s10 e but now I'll just wait for the one plus 7 or some other phone.

Samsung cam be a bit stingey with the ram allocations if this leak is true. Lite model should have 6gb the edge and edge plus 8gb, and 10gb for the special variants. They seem to have an obsession with 4gb for ram.

Omg. I think I should just get a Chinese phone. That 5G model is unlikely to come to my country and at the same time, Samsaung isn’t improving much the S10+ which I’m planning to get. I don’t want a phone that’s 2nd to best after spending my best
