Samsung is gearing up for the next big launch with the new Samsung Galaxy S10. Earlier we saw various rumors and leaks which claim that the new Samsung Galaxy S10 will sport new Infinity-O display. Now we have a few more leaks which claim that Samsung will use Antenna and Camera parts which are made by Chinese OEM.
As per the source, Samsung is planning to reduce the overall manufacturing cost for the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S10 by using some of the parts of the device from Chinese suppliers. Samsung has now decided to move from local Antenna supplier Amotech to the Chinese supplier to reduce the cost.
The source also reveals that the Samsung Galaxy S10 will use the camera module made by Sunny who has previously supplied modules for Samsung Galaxy S9 prototypes and was given the order to make the camera modules for the recently launched Samsung Galaxy Note 9. As per the source, Samsung thinks that Chinese supplier is providing better quality under low prices so why to pay more for the standard OEM.
