Samsung managed to immediate some confusion the opposite day when a video uploaded to its personal YouTube channel (now unlisted and possibly set for deletion) talked about that the Galaxy Word 10 was constituted of stainless-steel. “Chrome steel and glass meld seamlessly to attenuate bezel,” says the video’s narrator.
The corporate by no means talked about something about switching from aluminum to metal throughout press briefings — nor was it introduced up onstage throughout this week’s Unpacked occasion. Why would Samsung improve to a brand new materials and never inform anybody?
It didn’t. The video was utterly incorrect.
Samsung has now confirmed to The Verge that the Word 10’s body is constituted of aluminum, similar to the corporate’s different flagships lately. It’s odd that such an misguided voiceover made it right into a promotional video. How was it even a part of the script? Perhaps at one level Samsung was fascinated with upgrading the Word 10 to stainless-steel a la the iPhone X and XS. However nope.
The error even made it onto Samsung’s web site, as SamMobile factors out, with the Word 10’s design web page initially studying “high-polish stainless-steel” earlier than somebody modified it to “high-polish steel.” Whoops.
This morning, Samsung reuploaded the “Galaxy Word 10 introduction video” — with no point out of stainless-steel in any respect.
