Like the Galaxy Note9 and Galaxy S9 before it, the Galaxy S10 established or matched several smartphone display performance records during DisplayMate's extensive tests, ultimately becoming the latest flagship Galaxy device to earn the firm's highest-ever "Excellent A+" grade.
A mention of Ming-Chi Kuo's name usually means new Apple predictions.
Samsung couldn't have asked for a better fan response to the S10's Infinity O display.
According to an investor note, Kuo has increased his shipping estimates for the Galaxy S10 by 30 percent from 30 million and 35 million to between 40 million and 45 million units. "And if you drop it, the display is more susceptible to damage". Improvements in smartphone trade-in programs is also catalyzing the strong sales.
Based on the 2019 Mobile World Congress, foldable is being cemented as the future of smartphones, with Samsung and Huawei leading the pack. The outer-case acts as a reserve battery and is capable of wireless charging. According to Kuo, the spec differentiation from iPhone models is playing a major part.
Samsung's latest flagships also include a number of other features that can't be found on Apple's flagships such as the ultrasonic in-display fingerprint scanner.
The external folding device, however, will be thinner as it has no extra screen. Whereas conventional smartphone OLED panels' visuals feature roughly 12 per cent blue light, the Galaxy S10's feature just seven per cent - the lowest level in the business.
Mr Sabbagh said the UAE is the best-performing market for Samsung in the region, but he expects more growth in Oman this year. They run Samsung's new One UI skin on top of Android 9 Pie.
One thing which is sure is that Samsung is determined to push foldable designs into the mainstream. Now there are other models available with 512GB and even 1TB of storage available.
