Galaxy S10 Exynos, Snapdragon variants won’t be created equal

For whatever business and legal reasons, Samsung has long made two variants of its flagship devices.

Samsung W2019 clamshell Android phone just keeps on flipping

Given how heavily the still non-existent Samsung FOD was leaked before never happening, it might take quite a while before it takes flesh, if at all.
