Samsung just celebrated their 10 year anniversary for the Galaxy S series by launching 5 new Galaxy Phones. The Galaxy S10E, the Galaxy S10, the Galaxy S10 Plus, the Galaxy S10 5G, and the Galaxy Fold

GALAXY S10 : BASE MODEL ($900)

The Galaxy S10 has a 6.1-inch display, which according to Samsung is the first display to earn an HDR10+ certification, which is nothing but Samsung’s version of Dolby Vision.

You also get 3 rear cameras, a 16-megapixel ultrawide camera with fixed focus, the main 12-megapixel wide-angle lens with OIS, and a 12-megapixel telephoto lens with the ability to achieve 2x optical zoom. The front camera is a 10-megapixel sensor with dual aperture.

The Galaxy S10 would be available in 128GB or 512GB storage variants coupled with 8GB RAM and 512GB expandable storage. It will come with a 3400 mAh battery capacity with Gorilla Glass 6 on the front and Gorilla glass 5 on the back.

GALAXY S10+ : 1TB MONSTROSITY ($1000)

The Galaxy S10+ comes with a 6.4-inch screen and a 4100 mAh battery for just a $100 more. The S10+ will have the same camera set up on the back as seen in the S10, but we also see a second front camera, an 8-megapixel sensor that would enable depth-mode for users to take portrait selfies along with the original 10-megapixel camera.

The S10+ comes in 128GB & 512GB storage variants. We also see a new 1TB variant with 12GB RAM, if you’re into that sort of things.

GALAXY S10E : VALUE FOR MONEY? ($750)

The Galaxy S10E comes with a small 5.8-inch display and a Snapdragon 855 processor. Comes with only 2 rear cameras, a wide and an ultrawide sensor. There is only one camera in the front of the phone and that is a 10-megapixel shooter just like the one seen on the Galaxy S10.

You also don’t have the curved displays on this phone or the In-Display fingerprint scanner which is present in the other S10 devices but Samsung didn’t want you to get bored with the conventional fingerprint scanner in the back thing and went with a new fingerprint scanner on the side of the device which is embedded in the power button.

It comes with a 3100 mAh battery, a 128GB storage and 6GB RAM variant or a 256GB storage variant with 8GB RAM. Samsung decided to go with a budget variant of the Galaxy device this year probably because Apple decided to launch its iPhone XR (budget iPhone at $750) last year.

GALAXY S10 5G : COMING SOON (PRICE TBA)

This Galaxy S10 device would feature a 6.7-inch display with 2 cameras on the front and 4 cameras on the back. This 5G model comes with a fourth camera having a 3D depth-sensor for all the fun fancy photo stuff with AR etc.

It comes with a 4500 mAh battery with 256GB of storage and 8GB of RAM. What might be a bummer to some people is that Samsung decided to ditch the microSD card slot.

GALAXY FOLD : FLEXIN’ IT HARD ($1980)

The Galaxy Fold, as the name clearly suggests comes with a foldable display with a 4.6-inch display when folded and a 7.3-inch display when not which Samsung has names the INFINITY FLEX DISPLAY. It is a small phone that fits easily in the palm of your hands when folded and gets as big as a tablet when not.

Samsung is going with 512GB of Universal Flash Storage 3.0 to get faster speeds alongside a 7nm Qualcomm octa-core processor coupled with 12GB RAM.

This new Galaxy device comes with 2 batteries, yes 2 different batteries which are separated by the fold but together in the OS giving the Galaxy Fold a humongous 4380 mAh battery.

Samsung created a hinge mechanism with various interlocking gears alongside a sturdy and solid backbone which allows the device to fold easily from phone to tablet mode.

It has a 16-megapixel ultrawide camera, a 12-megapixel wide-angle camera and a 12-megapixel telephoto camera on the back of the phone. The apps change seamlessly into the tablet mode from the phone mode with the help of a feature they like to call “App Continuity” wherein apps like WhatsApp, Google Maps all are optimized to transition smoothly. Samsung has been working with Google to see to it that Android 9.0 Pie is easily supported on this display.

Tesla Will Be Fine Without CEO Elon Musk, Says Shareholder

According to one of Tesla’s largest shareholder, Elon Musk would be fine if the Securities and Exchange Commision (SEC) decided to oust Musk as CEO of Tesla.

James Anderson, Baillie Gifford Global Equities head, in an interview said that


“We wouldn’t be against him having a different role, I don’t think he needs to be CEO”

James Anderson

James Anderson claimed that the current CEO Musk should consider taking the role of “Chief Ideologue”

Anderson’s firm has roughly 7.7 percent stake in the firm making it worth over $3.5 Billion. The only bigger shareholder after him is Musk himself with 20 percent stake.

Last week, the Securities and Exchange Commission asked that Musk should be held in contempt of court for a tweet musk sent about the Tesla production numbers which were allegedly misleading.

Following that, Musk was asked to explain himself to the Court by a federal Judge till March 11.

This all goes back to when Musk tweeted about having secured the required funding to take Tesla private whereas in reality, there was no such funding.

Following that, the SEC had musk step down from the post as chairman but allowed him to remain as the CEO of the company, and that all the Tesla related “tweets” he send out would be approved by the company’s lawyers.

Following the announcement of their new Tesla Model 3 for just $35000, the shares continue to slide and were down 3 percent this Tuesday and since last Thursday’s price cut, it has fallen more than 14 percent.

Analysts Brian Johnson and Steven Hempel said in their research notes that


Much of the bull narrative has rested on Tesla being the next Apple, selling high-volume EVs . . . at high gross margins, in part aided by a unique branded retail presence — a narrative we see as undermined by the recent price cuts”
