Samsung has always committed themselves to include health tracking features in their flagships smartphones. Though they get unnoticed most of the time or not valued enough, it got a good amount of attention with the current flagship, Samsung Galaxy S9 and Samsung Health application. Samsung is said to have planned big for the 10th iteration of their flagship series and has some new features to showcase in the Samsung Galaxy S10 event scheduled for Q1 2019. We will see an overview of them before briefing on the health features.
Samsung Galaxy S10 features and specifications from rumors
This year Samsung is possibly expanding their line up by introducing a cheaper addition to their Samsung Galaxy S10 series. That means we are about to see 3 differently special-ed Samsung Galaxy S10s in 2019.
A while back Samsung officially confirmed their latest generation smartphones too won’t have a notch unlike every other brand following the infamous trend sheepishly. This is another ardent decision by Samsung to stay away from the not-so-good-looking notch trend which consoles a lot of notch haters.
Some notable market analysts initially suggested Samsung working on an in-display fingerprint tech and later made a note that Samsung is saving it for the big event, Samsung Galaxy S10. Samsung Galaxy Note 9 is due to release in the upcoming months but that is not gonna get the ultrasonic fingerprint scanner beneath the display.
Samsung is up-ing their camera game too. Something enormous, 5 cameras in total. A triple rear the camera including a variable aperture optics and a wide angle set-up accompanied by the dual front-facing cameras to bring the crisp and clear portrait ability to selfies too.
Apart from these, we expect a Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 or Exynos 9820 to power the Samsung Galaxy S10 with 4 or 6 Gb of memory. The batteries must range across 3000 to 4000 mAh across various models
Samsung Galaxy S10 health features and applications
The second largest smartphone company in the world has stayed put on certain things when there is not many other noticing or appreciating them. One such thing is the health and fitness tracking features that they have been including for a while now. Not many other smartphones have an emphasis on health tracking features especially after every brand started to manufacture their own fitness bands. No doubt Samsung too has a sound line-up of smartwatches and fitness tracking bands, but they haven’t denied those features on their flagship Galaxy S series smartphones and we expect the same for the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S10 too.
Samsung has a dedicated application of their own to showcase all their health features. The “Samsung Health” app does the steps tracking from the inbuilt pedometer which uses the motion sensor to find the steps walked and uses the flash setup to read heart rate and gives you a complete health tracking information from steps, distance, calories, and heart rate.
With the addition of a few newbie features for the Samsung Galaxy S10, we strongly think they would choose to lose out on the health features.
