Samsung will inevitably release the long-anticipated Galaxy S10 next year, so naturally, there's huge hype for the handset as early as now. So many rumors have come out regarding this phone, but details such as release date and pricing have been nebulous.
Until now, that is. New leaks are suggesting that Samsung is going to launch its next flagship on Feb. 20. No word yet on what the phone is going to look like, but practically, all rumors point to a new kind of display — the Infinity-O, as Samsung likes to call it, which trades the highly contested notch for a "punch hole" design. The Galaxy A8s, which debuted recently in China, is the first to have such a display.
New Samsung Galaxy S10 Rumors
The newest round of Galaxy S10 rumors come from Gizmodo UK, citing "sources." The report says there'll be a Samsung Unpacked even on Feb. 20 that will mark the release of the handset, which is highly plausible since Samsung has used that event for product unveilings many times in the past.
Interestingly, that's a week ahead of next year's Mobile World Congress, where a lot of major unveilings also occur. In any case, the rumored date falls neatly into Samsung's release pattern — the Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus were announced Feb. 25.
After that Samsung Unpacked event, Samsung will apparently release the handset on March 8, according to the report.
Samsung Galaxy S10 Pricing
Gizmodo also dishes on the potential pricing for the forthcoming lineup. In the UK, the 5.8-inch "flat" Galaxy S10 will cost £669 and come with 128 GB of storage. That's about $845 when converted. The standard Galaxy S10, meanwhile, will be available in 128 GB and 512 GB options at £799 and £999, respectively. Exactly what differentiates the "flat" model from the standard ones remain unclear, but it could refer to a non-curved variant, as in the plain Galaxy S7.
Samsung Galaxy S10 Storage Options
As with previous iterations, there will also be a Galaxy S10 Plus, which will allegedly come in 128 GB for £899 and 512 GB for £1,099. That's not all, however. Apparently, there'll also be a 1 TB variant that'll cost £1,399. If true, it's going to be the most expensive phone Samsung has ever produced thus far and also one with the most storage.
Of course, everything mentioned above are still rumors, so take them with a grain of salt. In any case, make sure to check back with Tech Times as we learn more.
