Samsung Galaxy S – THE EVOLUTION

February 16, 2020


Samsung managed to become the world’s biggest
smartphone brand thanks to a variety of smartphones they release every year. But their flagship the “Galaxy S” lineup remains
the most popular and the most well known. The Galaxy S series has always been Android’s
main iPhone competitor, and it has been that way ever since the very first Galaxy S device
launched back in 2010. With the Galaxy S20 being their latest S series
phone, let’s take a look at how the Galaxy S series has evolved over the years. The original Galaxy S was announced in 2010,
and it was an instant success with the company selling over 25 million units of the handset. It had a 4 inch display which was considered
large at that time. 512GB RAM, 8GB of base storage, Android 2.1
eclair out of the box and 1500mAh battery. Although Samsung had made smartphones before
the Galaxy S, this was a true push for a higher-end device and the global reputation that had
eluded what is now the world’s top smartphone brand. The Galaxy S2 was quite a success for Samsung
with over 40 million units having been sold in the end. It had a large 4.3″ AMOLED display, and a
rather capable camera for the time with an 8-megapixel main sensor. It provided an improvement in build quality
over the Galaxy S, even though the phone was still made out of polycarbonate. By this time, it was already clear the Galaxy
S series was Android’s flagship series. Samsung managed to sell an impressive 70 million
Galaxy S3 units. The S3 saw a considerable bump in display
size over the Galaxy S2. It featured a 4.8-inch HD Super AMOLED display,
1GB of RAM and 2100mAh battery. The S3 looked a lot more different from the
previous two devices, it was rounder and had a thinner home button and was one of the best
looking phones at that time. The Galaxy S4 resembled the Galaxy S3 quite
a lot although its bezels were thinner. It had a 5″ FHD display, 13MP camera, 2600mAh,
IR blaster and more. Samsung sold 80 million units of the Galaxy
S4 making it the most selling Android-powered mobile phone of all time. The Galaxy S5 also had a similar polycarbonate
design, The overall design had changed so little that it was actually quite easy to
confuse the Galaxy S5 with the previous version. A lot of people didn’t like the back texture,
it was kinda trypophobic in nature. It was also the very first Galaxy S-branded
phone to offer a fingerprint scanner. The sales didn’t increase this time and Samsung
sold 40% less S5’s than what they anticipated. The Galaxy S6 changed things. It was many firsts, Samsung launched two Galaxy
S handsets at the same time, S6 and S6 Edge. The latter had curved displays on both sides. Also, Samsung went with a glass black and
metal frame for the first time bringing premiumness to the S series. It was wireless charging too. Also, they went with QHD+ displays for the
first time. But there were some controversial decisions
as well. Namely, removable batteries were gone and
it had no microSD card slot. Samsung never declared the sales numbers but
reports suggest they sold around 45 million units in total. After receiving a lot of criticism Samsung
brought back MicroSD expansion on the S7 and S7 Edge. They both looked similar to the previous iteration
but the design was fine-tuned and the edge variant had a massive 5.5″ display. The sales were pretty good with over 60 million
units sold units worldwide. The S8 and S8+ saw arguably the biggest change. Samsung kinda mainstreamed the whole bezel-less
trend, the home button was gone, the fingerprint scanner was moved to the back. The display size went over 6″ for the first
time. Samsung never declared any official sales
figures but S8 and S8+ were branded a huge success for the company. The S9 and S9+ looked almost identical to
the S8 but the S9+ had a dual camera with a physical variable aperture. They sold over 45 million units of these handsets
but did not sell as well as the Galaxy S8 previously did. With the S10 Samsung launched 4 devices right
out of the bat. They offered quite substantial upgrades both
in design as well as features. Samsung went with the edge to edge display
with a punch hole selfie camera. They also featured the world’s first in-display
ultrasonic fingerprint scanner, a rather large display and it was also the first time the
price went over $1000. The Galaxy S20 is their latest S series phone. Samsung directly jumped from 10 to 20 to better
aling the name with the new decade. The camera is the main focal point this year. It’s the first time Samsung is offering such
a substantial camera upgrade in almost 4 years. 108MP camera on the Ultra variant, 8K recording,
5000mAh battery, 100X zoom camera, a 6.9″ display and more. There are three variants this year and they
will carry the legacy forward of the most popular series in the Android market, the
Galaxy S series of phones. Please consider subscribing for all the latest
tech news and as always I’ll see you tomorrow…Peace out!

    By now, if it's still not clear, new phones of S series is NOT cheap. You can either say that Samsung makes cheap good phone, or expensive best phones. Now is the generation of mid range phones, not everybody buys flagship phones nowadays. Many people just buy a year old flagship phone.

    Remember when every1 laughed at Apple, because they made it impossible to remove the battery?
    Samsung followed with the S6 and its standard today.
    Remember when everyone laughed at the IPhone 7 without headphone jack?
    It's now a flagship standard and the s20 (even the almighty ultra) won't have it.
    Remember when every1 laughed about that stupid oversized camera module design of the I phone 11?
    Well….
