The Samsung Galaxy S10 to debut on the 20th of February

Share

Today's report from South Korea provides several details for the Galaxy S10 X, a device that's rumored to be Samsung's first gadget with 5G internet support. Both the Galaxy S10 and S10 Plus will purportedly sport an in-screen ultrasonic fingerprint scanner to unlock the handset and authenticate contactless payments, while the Galaxy S10 Lite will have a fingerprint sensor embedded on the side of the phone.

The Samsung Galaxy S10 X is said to have a 6.7” display (with an in-display FP reader), four cameras on the back, two on the front and a 5,000mAh battery.

Pricing for the lowest S10 model will reportedly sit somewhere between 800,000 won (~$712) and 900,000 won (~$801), while the Galaxy S10 X could reach as high as 1.8 million won, which converts to around $1,603. Oof.

We still don't have a ton of experience with this design, but Kellen and I recently spent time with an Honor phone that features it and I can say, it's not the worst thing ever.

If the report from the outlet is accurate, it means the most premium Galaxy S10 model could offer great battery life that could challenge all of its 2019 rivals.

Catching their mistake, Samsung replaced the picture of the phone to a more generic one 3 days later. The Korean major is evidently considering names including "Fold", "Galaxy Fold" and "Galaxy F". Actually, Samsung's One UI running on top of Android 9 Pie, to be exact.

By now, news has already gotten out about Samsung's next Unpacked event on Febuary 20th, where we're expecting to see all three version of the new S10 (S10 Lite, S10, and S10 Plus).

Samsung has already confirmed that they are introducing its 10th anniversary Galaxy S Series smartphone ahead of MWC 2019, which is scheduled to commence from February 25 in Barcelona. Ultra-sonic tech differs from optical fingerprint readers in a pretty big way. Announcements that may include foldable phones from other companies, if rumours and speculation are to be believed. Much like the Pixel's Night Sight, Samsung intends to launch a competing feature, apparently called Bright Night, able to snap what should be awesome shots in low light conditions without the need for a flash.

Ice Universe, a well-renowned leaker, has also given its insights on Samsung's unpacked release.
