Samsung will soon reveal its next smartphone during a dedicated Samsung Unpacked event. The internet is filled with rumors as many are looking forward to the official announcement.
This article pits the iPhone XS and the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S10 in a side-by-side comparison. Read below to learn more about the devices.
The iPhone XS sports a 5.8 OLED display with a generous 2436x 1125 resolution and 458 PPI while the S10 will have a larger 6.1-inch panel with a higher resolution at 1140 x2960 and 540 PPI.
Samsung is a bit more generous when it comes to internal memory. The device will offer a choice between 128GB and 6GB of RAM and 512GB coupled with 8GB of RAM. Potential iPhone XS have the option to choose between 64GB, 256GB or 512GB of internal storage space, and each size comes with 4GB of RAM.
The mighty A12 Bionic chip raised some waves when the XS was revealed, but Samsung plans to even the score. The US version will employ Qualcomm’s bleeding edge Snapdragon 855, and the international version may use the Exynos 9820 chip.
The Samsung Galaxy S10 is built with selfies lovers in mind, as it thought that the device would feature a 10MP front camera with dual-pixel autofocus, OIS( or Optical Image Stabilization) and support for 4K video recording. These specs are miles ahead when compared to the meager 7MP sensor found on the iPhone XS.
The rear camera is also quite interesting. According to most rumors, the device will employ a triple camera setup consisting of a wide-angle lens, a telephoto lens and a depth lens that will be used by an AI to create beautiful shots. The XS offers a dual lens setup with two 12MP sensors. The triple camera system is a clear winner, as the performance is almost certainly superior.
Both devices are quite impressive, but a clear analysis will become possible after the S10 is released. Until then we can only hope that it will be a worthy competitor for the iPhone XS.
