Samsung Electronics will equip one of the models "anniversary" of the flagshipGalaxy S10 triple camera, as Huawei P20 Pro. With the S9 widely having been panned as an incremental improvement over the S8, the stakes for the S10 are much higher, and Samsung's top brass simply has to be aware of this fact.
Despite this, Samsung's 2018 goal of 350 million smartphone shipments is more ambitious than previous years.
According to The Korea Herald, analysts assert Samsung's annual goal is "far-fetched", citing lower-than-expected Galaxy S9 sales and reduced performance in China. Beyond 3 is where Samsung's putting all the marbles, with things like a larger screen and triple camera system on the back. The same thing is happening right now for the Galaxy Note 9, and frankly, I'm getting pretty exhausted of writing up the same thing year after year.
Samsung likes to add new color options to its flagship models when sales drop off. Some rumors have suggested that the Galaxy Note 9 will be similar to the Galaxy Note 8, with just a little design change and the expected specs upgrade, but nothing too drastic. According to a recent report, Samsung will hold its "Unpacked" event in NY on August 9, which is around two weeks in advance of when Samsung usually launches the Galaxy Note smartphone.
