The device with the outward folding design was originally competing with the Fold to be the first to debut before Samsung chose to go with the inward folding approach. Then again, the price for memory has been declining over the past few months, allowing Samsung to double the amount of storage it offers on its phones. As with most flagship smartphone launches, a full device teardown of the device has gradually turned into an essential ritual along with the usual unboxing, reviews, and comparisons.

Since it's too early to determine the most practical foldable form factor, Samsung is said to be working on more foldable models.
Samsung is well aware that its first foldable smartphone, the Galaxy Fold, is a luxury niche product. The Mate X has an enormous eight-inch show (higher than the Galaxy Fold) and folds outwards to turn out to be a 6.6-inch smartphone. The device could have an extra screen on the outside but Samsung will decide on this depending on customers' reaction with the Galaxy Fold. That said, you'll also be able to charge other devices when the phone is plugged in, essentially turning the S10 into a wireless charging mat.
In the meantime, the company is trying to flawless the Galaxy Fold's bendy display. According to Bloomberg's sources, Samsung is considering offering a free screen replacement as one possible solution to the issue - as it is retailing for just under US$2,000, we certainly hope so.
For one, Samsung's most high powered phone, the S10 Plus, is more expensive than any Galaxy S phone yet, starting at $999 and going up to $1,599 in the U.S.
South Korean sales for the Samsung Galaxy S10 series have arrived and the situation doesn't look great for Samsung.
