According to The Korea Herald's report, it's to release an entirely new Galaxy phone series the public wants; the foldable "Galaxy X".

A rumor from a couple of months ago revealed that Samsung could be thinking of launching the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 earlier than expected, possibly in July.

Some other officials consider it as Samsung's strategy to be unaffected by Apple's timeline for new products - the second edition of iPhone SE in June and successor of iPhone X in September - is to be launched in the second half of the year. Flexible display panels are expected to being production in November. The Galaxy X will likely be expensive to stay in line with competitors.

We have seen plenty of leaks regarding the upcoming Galaxy Note 9 and S10. As far as the pricing is concerned, we can expect the Galaxy A6 and A6+ smartphones to be priced under Rs 25,000 while the more affordable Galaxy J4 and J6 to cost under Rs 20,000.

Citing the "parts industry" as its source, the website claims that Samsung's "Beyond" codename is fitting for the firm's 10th-anniversary flagship, with the firm aiming to "go beyond" what it has already achieved in the smartphone market.

Samsung will manage to embed a fingerprint sensor into the Galaxy S10's AMOLED screen, The Bell claims, although it's unclear who will be providing the firm with the futuristic tech. There is a 16MP front camera on the A6 while the Galaxy A6+ has a 24MP selfie camera.

Samsung is speeding up the schedule for its flagship smartphones, with the Galaxy Note 9 and Galaxy S10 launch dates to be earlier than usual.
