How much the Galaxy S10 is going to cost is still up in the air, but an alleged leak may have already revealed the pricing details of Samsung's 2019 flagship.
Galaxy S10's Pricing Leaks
Cutting straight to the chase, Italian website TuttoAndroid claims to have obtained pricing details of the Galaxy S10 for the Italian market. If these turn out to be true, then these could be what the European region can expect from Samsung. By the same token, they give a good idea of how the handsets will be priced in the US market as well.
Here's a breakdown of the Galaxy S10's prices:
• Galaxy S10 Lite with 6 GB of RAM and 128 GB of storage: €779 (roughly $885)
• Galaxy S10 with 6 GB of RAM and 128 GB of storage: €929 ($1,056)
• Galaxy S10 with 8 GB of RAM and 512 GB of storage: €1,179 ($1,340)
• Galaxy S10 Plus with 6 GB of RAM and 128 GB of storage: €1,049 ($1,192)
• Galaxy S10 Plus with 8 GB of RAM and 512 GB of storage: €1,299 ($1,477)
• Galaxy S10 Plus with 12 GB of RAM and 1 TB of storage: €1,599 ($1,818)
According to the website, all the models will come in black, white, and green. The Lite variant has an additional option in yellow. Interestingly, it points out that there are two special versions of the Plus model, but despite recent rumors, there's no word on a ceramic build.
The Galaxy S10 should hit the shelves in Italy on March 8, if the info here is accurate.
Beyond The Prices
The post corroborates other rumors circulating online. For starters, the Galaxy S10 Lite will measure at 5.8 inches and be the only one to have a flat screen. On the other hand, the Galaxy S10 and Galaxy S10 Plus will sport 6.1- and 6.4-inch curved displays, respectively.
The Galaxy S10 Plus is said to boast a pair of cameras on the front, while the Galaxy S10 Lite and standard Galaxy S10 will both have just one. Purportedly, the Lite version will have only two rear cameras, unlike its more expensive siblings that have three. It won't have an under-display fingerprint reader as well, which doesn't come as much of a surprise since it's the budget-friendly option, after all.
Despite how convincing and consistent these rumors are turning out to be, it's still recommended to take them with a grain of salt — that is, until Samsung officially unveils them at its Unpacked event on Feb. 20.
