Galaxy S10 trio to bring "very significant" design changes according to CEO

Samsung Galaxy S9
Finally, after reports and rumors have been claiming for quite some time now that the Galaxy S10 series would introduce some major design changes to Samsung’s smartphone design language, the CEO of Samsung Mobile has confirmed that this is indeed the case.
Speaking to Chinese media earlier this week, the head of the company stated that the upcoming flagship series would bring “very significant” changes. This was made in reference to the smartphone’s overall design if compared to the current Galaxy S9 line and Galaxy Note 9. Unfortunately, the executive failed to detail what kind of changes can be expected.
On a separate design note, the CEO has revealed that there will be very “amazing” colors on offer when it comes to the Galaxy S10. This backs up recent rumors of a new color scheme that would be capable of rivaling Huawei’s gradient offerings. Moreover, it also coincides with new information that claims Samsung is now considering a whopping nine colors for its next flagships, one of which is the fan-favorite Emerald Green which was last seen back in 2015 on the Galaxy S6 Edge.
In regards to what can be expected feature-wise from the Galaxy S10 series, the largest of the three expected smartphones will ship with a total of five cameras (three on the rear and two up front). The other two, on the other hand, are expected to stick to a singular sensor up front and just two on the rear. Internally, however, all three will be powered by the same Exynos 9820 processor.
Presently, the Galaxy S10 trio is expected to make its official debut at MWC 2019 in February. If this is accurate, sales should commence towards the middle of March. In terms of prices, the Galaxy S10 and S10+ will likely be aimed as direct competitors to the iPhone XS and XS Max. Separately, the cheaper Galaxy S10 model could rival Apple’s new iPhone XR.

Umm no. Samsung has a whole campaign making fun of the notch. That dude with the haircut ring a bell? And don't even bring Google up with the headphone jack fiasco. Samsung is a different ballgame when it comes to advertising.

Not exactly and I'm NO fan of apple. Remember the wall hugging apple users charging their phone in that samsuung commercial? It made fun of sealed batteries. Now, Samsung has sealed batteries. That burns me too, bc I'm a huge fan of removable batteries

While I do agree with you, they used to make fun of Apple and their sealed in batteries with a cleaver galaxy S5 ad, calling iPhone users wall huggers in airports and what not. And take a look at the newer Samsung models. I do give Sammy some credit for including a fast charger out of the box, but companies will shift if they deem it more profitable. I hope to god that I will never see the day when Sammy drops the 3.5mm headphone jack and adds a notch, but when that day comes, I won't be too surprised.

If a Note doesn’t sell as well, or outsell the iPhone...in their eyes, it didn’t sell well. The Note is a niche device, practically in its own realm. It’ll sell well, based on how it always sold. It’ll never sell as much as the iPhone, or Galaxy S, and it’s not intended to. It’s not a mainstream device like the other two are. What it is, is the baddest, and best(est) phone on the market. That fact isn’t even remotely intelligently disputable.

The Note 9 is not a niche phone. It sells better than most Andrioid flagships. Samsung has their own expectation when it comes to Note sales. For example they expected the Note 8 to beat the Note 5 in sales and it did beat it. Now they are expecting the Note 9 to beat the Note 8 in sales. It does that and a success in terms of sales. A successful model for most companies means beating the total sales of the model it directly replaces. For example will the iphone xs beat the iphone x in sales? Who knows, odds ar against it.

And what should Samsung do when asked about it's upcoming flagship? Pretend it doesn't exist so apple fans don't feel triggered? At the end of the day the S10 has to compete with the boring iphone x update of this year.

This years iphones are really got a weak upgrade. Their's design, processor (it's geekbench score almost same, i dont know antutu and 3dmark scores), front and rear cameras, displays are not enough to compete s10 series.
