[CNET] Samsung Unpacked 2019 Event features several new devices coming soon...







Quote:
Galaxy Fold
With its new 7.3-inch Infinity Flex display, a 7nm processor, Samsung's new fast solid-state storage and seamless flow between folded and expanded views, the Galaxy Fold breaks new ground. At $1,980, that applies to its pricing, too...

Galaxy S10 models and accessories
There weren't a lot of details left unleaked about the phones or accessories, but now we get to see them in action....
Source

As a huge Samsung fanboy (admittedly) I must say that I have several serious qualms with the Galaxy Fold device despite its obvious "Wow Factor"...
Spoiler!


Overall, this was actually quite a good event for Samsung. The S10 lineup looks really good (if unsurprising due to the leaks), the new Samsung Smartwatch also looks like an earnest attempt to flesh out their ecosystem, and the new Galaxy Buds can be wirelessly charged by the S10 itself and could rival the Airpods in performance at a lower price...

If you put bezeless screens on both front and back, I don't think there will be any areas to put the screws for various components to hold inside.

S10 looks pretty nice. Might even make me switch from iPhone 8.
10e’s fingerprint scanner position is S8 level of bad if not worse though. Using phone with left hand makes it unreachable even with index finger with those body dimensions.

S10 really nice device, but I have problems with non symmetric designs, I could not think about using such screen :-(.
Too bad they didn't go with the slider design- much better IMO and more fun to use.

I have to admit I am quite impressed with the S10 lineup, but like others have said the holes in the screen are pretty bothersome to look at.
I hope the reverse wireless charging thing catches on with other phone makers.

I think for the fold if you are going to cough up $2k+ for it after tax, the outer screen cannot be that ugly. Feels like a beta product. Also disappointed that they did not integrate the on-screen fingerprint scanner and instead chose to opt for the cheap standard power button scanner that most budget phones can even have. If they had both of these things and a smaller notch for the larger screen, it might have been worth considering for the ridiculous asking price.

What I do not get is the Galaxy S9 was $720 while this cheap Galaxy S10E is more expensive at $750. This is just Samsung pulling an Apple.

I've been asking for a folding smart phone for years now, but I personally want it to just have one half as a dedicated chicklet keyboard so I can use it as a mini laptop. I've never been able to type as fast on a smart phone as I could on my old sliding keyboard phone circa 2008.

Am I the only one that wants this??

You mean like Nokia 9000 series? It was badass for it's time, looks like Samsung just made a worse version of it.
