The Samsung Galaxy S10 launch date has officially been announced. The device will debut at Samsung Galaxy UNPACKED 2019 in San Francisco, on February 20th.
We are not surprised that the phone will be announced ahead of the MWC 2019 tech show. The Galaxy S10 will be the first flagship phone from the South Korean electronics giant, to ship with the company’s new custom Android skin, OneUI.
We have seen from many Galaxy S10 leaked pictures, that the device will flaunt a notch-less design and ditches the iris scanner. Instead, the phone will be equipped with an in-screen selfie camera, thanks to the Infinity-O display. That’s not the only tech in the screen, because the Galaxy S10 packs an ultrasonic in-display fingerprint scanner, faster than the conventional optical sensors.
Rumour has it that the Galaxy S10 will not have a headphone jack, but we can’t say for sure yet. Samsung will release three versions of the Galaxy S10, a Galaxy S10 Lite which has a 5.8-inch flat screen display, a Galaxy S10 E aka the Edge 6.1-inch display variant, and a Galaxy S10 Plus with a bigger display at 6.4-inches.
All three Galaxy S10 variants will be powered by a Samsung Exynos 9820 processor (Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 in the US). The S10 will be backed by a 3100mAh battery, the S10 E by a 3,500 mAh battery, while the S10 Plus will come with a 4000 mAh battery. Storage wise the variants could feature 128GB and up to 512GB.
The Galaxy S10 prices reportedly start at £799 (Rs. 72,000 or $1000) for the regular variant, while the Galaxy S10 Edge could cost £999 (Rs. 90,000 or $1260), and the Galaxy S10 Plus could start at £899 (Rs. 81,000 or $1100), and up to£1399 (Rs. 1,26,000 or $1800) for the highest storage variant.
We only have to wait for the Galaxy S10 launch date, which is just over a month away from now, to see if the leaks were accurate. In the meantime, stay tuned to AndroidPure for more information about the most anticipated phone of the year.
