SK Telecom Completes Network Test of Samsung's 5G Smartphone

Samsung's smartphone division is making all-out efforts to make the Galaxy S10 series a success after posting 10.1 trillion won in operating profit past year due to lower-than-expected sales of the Galaxy S9 series. For actions requiring strong security, Samsung recommends using the new in-display Ultrasonic Fingerprint that unlocks only with your physical fingerprint. The Galaxy S10, however, is exciting and new in every way.

There are reports online claiming face unlock on the new Samsung Galaxy S10 isn't working as securely as expected, with news of handsets unlocking after scanning a face of someone other than the owner. XDA developers found that the "davinci5G" was mentioned in the source code of the Galaxy S10 kernel.

Samsung Galaxy A9 (2018) - the South Korean electronics giant's first smartphone with quad rear cameras - is finally getting some software upgrade love and bidding adieu to Android Oreo.

The global version of the Samsung Galaxy Note9 received the One UI update based on Android 9.0 Pie in January and February and just this month, the carrier-locked version got the OTA update too.

You can probably see where we're going with this. Rest assured, we'll definitely let you know more about the phone when more information about it becomes available.

I expect that to hold although a 5G version of the Galaxy Note 10 to be closer to $2000 with a fully specced version, with 1TB of storage, 5G and 12GB of memory to give $3000 a nudge.

Samsung also advises users to "keep in mind that Face recognition might not recognize you if there are major changes to your appearance, such as heavy makeup, facial hair changes, or glasses".
