Did Samsung low-key hint that the Galaxy S10 will be available in green and pink?
Yesterday at the first day of Samsung's SDC'18 developers summit, the South Korean giant not only unveiled the new OneUI user interface, but also gave us a sneak peek at its intriguing foldable phone, which should come out in the... near future.

Well, aside from these two major news that were produced at the very first day of the conference, we might have been given a low-key third one, which is really corresponding with certain rumors. In particular, Samsung might have given us a big teaser about the Galaxy S10's color options., and yes, it seems the flagships might come in green and pink.

How did we come to this conclusion? While Samsung's Senior Designer of UX, Jee Won Lee, was walking us all through the various new UX elements and features of OneUI, she revealed that OneUI will be capable of automatically matching the appearance of the UI theme with the color of the device. While saying that, a presentation slide showcasing five different UX themes appeared, representing five similarly-colored Samsung devices - white, green, dark grey, blue, and pink. You can see this yourselves in the video right below.


So, what is this telling us? Given that there is no contemporary Samsung flagship that's available in green or pink at the moment, it's highly likely that Samsung is low-key preparing us for the new colors that are to come. Of course, the more memorable of you will remember that the Galaxy S6 edge from back in the day was available in emerald green, while the Galaxy S8 series was the last one to sport a pink version. At the moment, you can have the Galaxy S9/S9+ in black, gold, purple, and blue, with the gold color being limited to the unlocked version of the phone.; meanwhile, the Note 9 is available in black, blue, silver, and purple.

Of course, these could very well be simply design mockups that won't represent the actual color schemes of the Galaxy S10 family, but it's totally not outlandish to assume that Samsung could have openly spilled some beans here. Given the recent trends to come up with more colorful and vibrant devices, the Galaxy S10 could be a pleasing breath of fresh air.

Just buy decent headphones or use the dongle. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ If you can afford a flagship smartphone then buying good wireless (you know it's 2018, right?) headphones shouldn't be a problem. I'm sick of the complains about the lack of headphone jack. Just move on, it's boring.

Some people just have a preference for a headphone jack. Headphone jacks still prove to have higher audio quality than bluetooth headphones. Also, the dongles are easy to lose. I would lose and the find my dongle on numerous occasions which have been constant wastes of time. Complaints about the headphone jack are warranted because there is still a market for them. As a consumer, the only thing to get what you want are through complaints.

Also have fun with the tangled headphone wires, so comfortable.

I mean, it's better to have an option and something to fall back to. Instead of nothing. I personally, use bluetooth headphones but there are times where the battery goes flat and I use the good ol wired headphones.

are you even aware that more than 90% of phones being made now, still have a headphone jack. Also, has the headphone Jack been replaced with a better solution? Nope. Sure wires headphones sound ok, but the ones you can also plug in that are wireless sound better plugged into the jack. Also when you use the Jack, you dont have to have the headphones charged tonise them. It's amazing how so many people come to tech sites and post uttered crap, when they dont know Jack about tech to begin it. If you prefer wireless options, use them an be happy. You dont have to make it seem something else is worse.

Headphone jack still remains useful. For example, plug headphone as antenna and use radio FM app to listen emergency news in remote area with no Internet access. Case done on Galaxy S9 Plus equipped with FM chipset also found on some smartphones. Good luck doing what with wireless headphones.

What I found funny is that spokesperson presenting the fodable phone revealed and placed in his pocket really quick. It still looks beta!

Because it is. They said it if you had watch the presentation It was a prototype or it could have been the real thing inside of a special case to prevent damage in case it was deop. This isnt rocketscience dude

Pink has typically been reserved for South Korea, going by previous pink phones Samsung has released. US will get white, dark gray, and blue.

No. White phone look terrible at this size now. I use to live white phones too. But the last white one I had was the Note 4 and it was just ugly to me in that color. Especially with all the sensor holes on the front.
