Galaxy S10 release date, price and specs: Samsung schedules Unpacked event for 20 February

THE GALAXY S10 looks set to be Samsung's most interesting smartphone yet, with talk of 5G support, an in-display fingerprint scanner and a ludicrous quad-camera setup.

PriceAccording to a report at Gizmodo,the so-called 'budget'Galaxy S10 will offer 12GB storage and retailfor £699, the regular S10 will offer 128GB or 512GB storage for £799 and £999, respectively, and the S10 Plus will offer 128GB, 512GB and 1TB variants priced at £899, £1,099 and an eye-watering £1,399.

The firmwill skip MWC and instead be holding events in both London and San Francisco, and while it's keeping tight-lipped on what we can expect, but promises to show off 'devices that will 'usher in new Galaxy experiences based on 10 years of innovations.'

So says notorious tipster Even Blass, who tweeted that Samsung's incoming flagship will allow users 'to wirelessly charge other compatible devices like handsets and watches' by placing them on the handset's chassis.

The leak confirms that the handset, which is expected to be the cheapest in the S10 lineup, will sport a near bezel-free display, complete with a small cutout for the front-facing camera, making use of Samsung's 'Infinity-O' display.

The image also reveals that the S10 Lite's volume rockers are situated on the left edge of the device and the USB Type-C port sits on the bottom edge, alongside the speaker grille and the 3.5mm audio jack.

The device wasspotted by Twitter user inss0317andfirst reported by WCCFtech, which asserts that the leaked image (below) shows off the S10 with its barely-there top and bottom bezels and its in-screen camera located in the top right corner.

Three models - the regular S10, a Plus model and a cheaper 'flat'' model - will launch ahead of next year's Mobile World Congress at an Unpacked event on 20 February, according to the report.

the so-called 'budget' modelwill offer 12GB storage and retailfor £699, the regular S10 will offer 128GB or 512GB storage for £799 and £999, respectively, and the S10 Plus will offer 128GB, 512GB and 1TB variants priced at £899, £1,099 and an eye-watering £1,399.

There's not much info on the rumoured 5G variant, but Gizmodo notes that 5G services won't be available on the S10 at launch, with its source claiming that they won't arrive until 'late Q2 at the earliest.'

Posted by SlashLeaks(below),the image suggests that rather than an Honor View 20-esque cutout, the flagship could adopt a chunky notch in the top right corner to house what looks like a dual camera setup.

Leaked renders of the flagship show off the handset's near bezel-less screen, quad camera setup and Samsung's front-facing camera cutout, which looks set to house two front-facing cameras to facilitate the firm's improved face recognition technology.

91Mobiles also ‘confirms' that the S10 Plus will pack a 6.4-inch dual-curved edge AMOLED display, an ultrasonic in-screen fingerprint scanner similar to that seen on the OnePlus 6T, and a 3.5mm headphone jack alongside its USB-C port.

The firm also boasted that the processor will offer a 20 per cent boost in single-core performance compared to its predecessor, and a 40 per cent improvement in power efficiency.

The device scored a respectable 325,076 on the benchmarking platform, trumping the Huawei P20 Pro's score of 273,295 but failing to match the iPhone XS, whichtops AnTuTu's rankings with a score of 352,405.

It won't adopt a screen cutout like the majority of new Android flagships, and despite recent rumours that the S10 would be among the first tofeature a 'punch hole' selfie camera - adopting Samsung's recently-teased 'Infinity O' display technology - there's no sign of the camera hole in this latest leak.

The newspaper, citing 'people familiar with the matter', reports that Samsung is planning to launch four variants of the Galaxy S10, including a 6.7in model - codenamed Beyond X - that will support 5G and pack six cameras;

The other three Galaxy S10 models won't be quite so ridiculously-specced, as the WSJ reports that they'll offer screens between 5in and 5.4in, and will offer between three and five cameras.However, thehandsets might add a reverse wireless charging feature that would allow the handsets to wirelessly juice other devices,similar to Huawei's Mate 20 Pro.

At least that's according to notorious tipster Evan Blass, who tweeted on Tuesday (below) that the Galaxy S10 will be the first to feature a 'punch hole' selfie camera - adopting Samsung's recently-teased 'Infinity O' display technology.

The device, tipped to arrive as the Galaxy X, won't feature an in-screen fingerprint scanner due to 'technical difficulties|, but will offer users' an extra 4in display that can be used when the phone is closed.

Samsung, naturally, didn't remark on the rumours, instead saying in a statement: 'We're continually evolving our smartphone portfolio to provide our customers with new and exciting innovations and experiences.

As per the report, seen by SamMobile, the Galaxy S10 will feature the same 12MPf1.5/2.4 variable aperture lens as the Galaxy S10, alongside a 'super wide-angle' 16MP f/1.9 lens with a 123-degree field of view and a 13MP f2.4 aperture sensor.

According to XML files hidden inside the firm's Android 9.0 update, spotted XDA-Developers, the four devices are codenamed 'beyond 0', 'beyond 1', 'beyond 2', and 'beyond 2 5G'.

While the leak doesn't tell us much else about the devices, XDA notes that all four handsets will likely launch with next-gen silicon from Samsung or Qualcomm (the Exynos 9820 or Snapdragon 8150), while the 5G model likely will pack either Qualcomm's Snapdragon X50 or Samsung's own Exynos 5100 modem.

While it's unconfirmed that this model number related to the Galaxy S10, SamMobile reports that the benchmark lists a resolution of412 x 869 pixels, higher than the 412 x 846-pixel resolution listed for the Galaxy S9, suggesting the mysterious device will join Samsung's flagship S-Series lineup.

The report notes that the model, which will feature the same specs as the S10 Plus, will require 'four to five more antennas' than current 4G handsets, before concluding that 'price of the series can be the most expensive.'

Besides its added 5G modules and high-end price-tag, The Bell reports that the S10 model will feature a 6.44in display and will be - along with the S10 Plus - the first S-series smartphone to arrive equipped with a dual camera on the front and a triple camera on the rear.

'The two high-end Galaxy S models will come fitted with an ultrasonic in-screen fingerprint scanner while the other one will house an optical fingerprint sensor beneath the screen,' an official from the display industry toldthe website.

Theoptical sensor, which will be 'three times cheaper' than the ultrasonic alternative, works like a digital camera, capturing a two-dimensional image of a fingerprint.It's not as accurate as the scanner set to debut on the two high-end S10 models, and will struggle to scan fingers if they're dirty, too wet or too dry, or if external lights get in the way.

While the Galaxy S9 was pretty much a carbon copy of the Galaxy S8 before it, despite rumours that it would boast significantly smaller bezels, it looks like Samsung has been saving these big upgrades for its 10th anniversary Galaxy S release.

In a follow-up tweet, Ice Universe also suggests that the S10 will offer improvements in the battery department, saying: 'If you use the more sophisticated packaging technology SLP, then the battery is definitely bigger than the S9, and the Samsung president said that he is working hard to solve the charging speed problem.'

It can scan a finger if it's wet, has a lag time of just 250 milliseconds, boasts a one per cent rejection rate and ismeasures in at just 0.15mm, so it won't result in chunky smartphones.

Adding weight to recent rumours, Kuo expects the larger two S10 models to include in-display fingerprint sensors, and the smaller model to include a fingerprint sensor on the side.

Samsung is reportedly planning three Galaxy S10 models for 2019, with earlier rumours claiming the highest-spec Galaxy S10 Plus will include a P20 Pro-rivalling triple-lens rear camera setup, much likeApple's incoming iPhone X Plus.

The report also has some more information on the S10 Plus' rumoured triple-lens setup, which will allegedly comprise a wide-angle lens,a telephoto lens, anda new 16MP, 120-degree ultra wide-angle lens.

This model won't feature an in-display fingerprint scanner, according to the report, and will instead feature a side-mounted sensor similar to that seen onMoto Z3 Playand past Sony devices.If legit, this will be the first time that Samsung adoptssuch positioning for a fingerprint sensor, with The Bell noting that it's likely to be located along on the right edge of the user's thumb.

The Fingerprint on Display (FOD) tech on the S10 series, set to be supplied by chipmaker Qualcomm, costs $15 per module, according to the report - seven times more expensive than the $2 module currently found on Samsung's flagship phones.

The report, which cites 'multiple industry officials participating in the development of the next Galaxy S series', claims that Samsung is planning to follow in the footsteps of Apple, which will also allegedly launch three new devices later this year.

The hands-on picture shows that, if legit, the Galaxy S10 could adopt a full-screen design similar to that seen on the Oppo Find X - which would give it a 93 per cent-ish screen-to-body ratio, up from the 83.6 per cent ratio found on the Galaxy S8 and S9.

Like theOppo Find X, there's no sign of a front-facing camera - or indeed any sensors - on the front of the device, suggesting that Samsung could be next in line to adopt a pop-up front-facing camera rather than an iPhone X-style notch.

Before you get your hopes up, though we find it hard to believe that the so-called ‘prototype' shows gives a legitimate picture of the Samsung's 2018 flagship given that the launch of the flagship is at least six months away.

As well as a souped-up screen resolution, the Galaxy S10 is also expected to feature a screen to body ratio of 93 per cent - improving on the Galaxy S9's 83.6 per cent ratio.

Further, it's looking, it's looking increasingly likely that the Galaxy S10 will the first Samsung's phone to feature an in-screen fingerprint readerafter Ice Universe tweetedthat theultrasonic tech won't make it to the Samsung Galaxy Note 9.

Citing the 'parts industry' as its source, the website claims that Samsung's 'Beyond' codename is fitting for the firm's 10th-anniversary flagship, with the firm aiming to 'go beyond' what it has already achieved in the smartphone market.

So says Korean website The Bell, which claims that Samsung's 10th-anniversaryGalaxy S series phones will arrive early next year equipped with an in-display fingerprint scanner and a 3D sensing camera, similar to that found on the iPhone X.

6 Test Automation Predictions for 2019

In 2018, the evolution of continuous delivery/DevOps accelerated the enterprise’s adoption of automation and software testing tools and processes.

In past years, open-source products have been trending, primarily because companies prefer freemium options to better meet their customization needs.

As an example, computer vision technologies, such as OCR and KeyPoint, help identify user interface elements when traditional automation tools are unable to recognize UI elements at the object level.

JavaScript is already the most downloaded language for new application development project frameworks, and test automation choices will continue to follow that adoption curve.

For large automation projects that produce thousands of test results every day, having a dashboard and reporting solution in place is essential for analyzing and managing results.

These tools work well with standard and primitive data, such as test case status, but they are not comprehensive enough to effectively report automation-specific errors, such as script issue or application changes.

In 2019, we’ll see a host of small utilities built around WebDriver to improve the Selenium experience across the test automation cycle for test management, test design, page objects repository, autonomous test execution, test result management, and more.

For this reason, we predict PWA will gradually take over mobile native apps because it’s much easier for developers to deliver great and consistent user experience across devices.

In order to succeed, Cypress and other Selenium-free automation offerings will need a larger ecosystem of supportive third-party tools (critical for large projects and large-scale adoption) — and we will see these begin to emerge in 2019.

2 Fast-Growing AI Stocks to Buy in 2019

From self-driving cars to interactions with virtual assistants and simple searches on the internet, you can be assured that there's an AI algorithm working in the background to come up with the best results.

It is well-known that NVIDIA is driving innovation in self-driving cars and Microsoft in the cloud, but a few smaller companies are using AI as a springboard for their growth and investors could benefit from taking a look.

XLNX data by YCharts NVIDIA has been making waves in AI thanks to its graphics cards, which are considered best suited for training AI models as they can process huge sets of data thanks to the presence of hundreds of cores.

But Xilinx's field-programmable gate arrays (FPGAs) -- chips that can be reprogrammed for specific tasks after manufacturing -- are considered ideal for the real-world deployment of AI models because of their flexibility and low power consumption.

Developers can reprogram Xilinx's FPGAs to deploy or fine-tune AI applications, making these chips ideal for the inferencing phase that requires fewer data center resources as compared to the training phase.

That's one of the reasons the FPGA market is expected to clock robust growth in the coming years, hitting revenue of $12.1 billion by 2024, as compared to $6.9 billion in 2016, according to one estimate.

Xilinx's chips played an important role in Alibaba's 'Singles Day' shopping event in November last year, providing more than 45 billion personalized shopping recommendations to consumers based on their histories.

This is a lucrative market to be in, as demand for intelligent networks is expected to increase at a compound annual growth rate of 28% through 2024, according to Zion Market Research.

The company's revenue increased nearly 21% year over year during the last reported quarter, a trend that should continue in the long run thanks to emerging technologies such as artificial intelligence.
