Samsung Galaxy S10
The Samsung galaxy S10 has released very few information regarding its software, but has confirmed other very important features.
Such features include the sensor and camera positioning. The Samsung sensor is set in a horizontal position contrary to the Samsung S9 which had a vertical position. Another fact is the addition of up to three lenses in the camera. The S10+ is told to have 3 cameras, but the S10 is only told to have 2, making the S10+ seem more appealing. In addition, one of the most reliable features on the Samsung S10 is the screen fingerprint which means that the fingerprint will not be dependent on a button, but rather on the screen itself. It is said that even if the screen is wet it does still work perfectly. The face ID is confirmed to continue and the Bixby assistant as well. The S10 has added 3 models to it, the S10, the S10+ and the S10 Lite. The S10 Lite being the smallest model, the S10 the medium one, and the S10+ the largest.
The S10 device will also have a much higher resistance screen display and has already been tested by the U.S. Department of defence. The tests consisted of throwing the phone from a height of 1.2 meters until it broke, resulting in up to 26 successful tries. It was too tested in extreme temperatures of -32 degrees Celsius, also proving to function perfectly with no damage to its sides, edges, or front.
IPhone Xs, Xs Max and Xr.
This year apple has created 3 new phones: iPhone Xs, iPhone Xs Max and iPhone Xr.
The iPhone Xs is esthetically similar to the iPhone X; however, they have added the new color gold. It has a super retina with OLED which allows it to deliver “Vivid brightness, True blacks and high dynamic range of content” according to Apple. The iPhone Xs Max is similar to the Xs, but nevertheless, has the largest display Apple has ever made on an iPhone. The company states it has the most durable glass ever developed for a smartphone.
Now, its Face ID recognition is also even faster than in the iPhone X. The camera takes 12MP pictures and contains more capable sensors, allowing the smartphones to get various amounts of light in different intensities. Also, portrait mode is on the back and front camera, and you can adjust the depth of field. Additionally, you can record 4K videos with extended dynamic range on stereo, meaning that it catches sound from 2 microphones instead of 1.
The IPhone Xr integrates the same technologies as the IPhone Xs/Max. It is similar to the the IPhone 8 but has a display similar to the IPhone Xs. Apple says that it has the most advanced LCD in a smartphone and is the most colour accurate in the industry. The new design allows the display to extend into the corners of the IPhone. The new camera allows the phone to recognise people, map subject and the depth of the image. There are also six different colors you can choose from: White, Black, Yellow, Blue, Coral and (PRODUCT)REDTM.
