The Samsung Galaxy S9 received a lukewarm response from the market because it did not have a compelling selling point to it. The bigger Galaxy S9 Plus features a dual rear camera system and 6GB of RAM, but the standard Galaxy S9 only had a single rear camera and 4GB of RAM. With mid-rangers offering flagship-level features, it is easy to see why the Galaxy S9 was a tough sell.
The story doesn’t end here. The Galaxy S9 did not even have a big battery, and Samsung said that the battery capacity would have been further reduced from 3,000mAh to accommodate a dual camera system on the back. And now it seems that the entry-level Galaxy S10 would follow in the footsteps of its predecessor. If rumors are anything to go by, the phone will have a single rear camera and lower internal storage than the other two variants.
Galaxy S10 Base Variant Expected to Ship With a 5.8-Inch Screen and a Single Primary Camera
Earlier rumors had suggested that the base variant of the Galaxy S10 that goes by the model number SM-G970x will have just 64GB of storage, but it was rebuffed by another report that said that Samsung will offer a 128GB variant of the entry-level model. There is no word on whether there would be a 256GB variant of the phone. The other two models, SM-G973x and SM-G975x, will apparently also have 128GB of onboard memory.
While most rumors suggest that the cheapest Galaxy S10 would have just one camera on the back, a sketchy rumor doing rounds on the internet says that the phone will have a dual camera system on the back as well as the front. For now, nothing is certain except for one thing; without a massive specifications upgrade, the Galaxy S10 would have a hard time competing with other high-end phones.
However, the presence of the Exynos 9820, which is said to come with its dedicated NPU should make a lot of difference for users when it comes to battery conservation, improved images, video and more. Samsung pretty much wants to compete with the iPhone XR, so let us see what sort of improvements the cheapest Galaxy S10 can bring to the table.
