Samsung Galaxy S10 will be released on February 20, 2019 also in Lite and Plus. Let’s find out the latest news on models, availability, prices and features of the new top of the range.
It’s official: the Samsung Galaxy S10 will be presented on Wednesday, February 20, a few days before the MWC 2019 to be held from 25 to 28 February.
The new Galaxy S10 will be one of the most exciting smartphones of 2019. And we are not surprised: the Galaxy S9 and S9+ have received a warm welcome, so as to be called the best smartphone of 2018 for the display, even exceeding the iPhone X. The successor of the lucky Galaxy S8, however, despite some improvements and attractive novelties (photographic “reimagined”, even more borderless design, fingerprint sensor in a more comfortable position, dual camera and support to animoji), will be easily eclipsed by the next top of range arriving in a few months.
Below we have collected all the news about release date, price, features and news of Samsung Galaxy S10, but immediately remove a doubt. The successor to the S9 will not be a foldable smartphone. True, Samsung has announced its Infinity Flex Display and is ready for profound changes. The ultra-flexible flexible display, however, at the moment is only a concept, and it is very unlikely that we will see it mounted on a device before 2020.
The rumors, however, suggest the release of a phone in 3 versions ( S10, S10 Lite and S10 Plus ), with a larger screen, much more expensive than the predecessors and with the camera sensor cut out in the display (goodbye to the notch?), Characterized from a look completely without frames and without notch. The launch is getting closer and closer, so it’s time to figure out when the Samsung Galaxy S10 comes out, how much it will cost and what will be its characteristics with which it will differentiate itself from the competition.
Samsung Galaxy S10: release date and price
Samsung’s next flagship will be launched on February 20, 2019, and not during the opening conference of the Mobile World Conference 2019. The next Samsung Unpacked Event will be held in San Francisco.
According to the rumors from Korea, the sale in stores should start immediately after the presentation or at the latest by March 8th. This date would be in line with the tradition of Samsung, which presented the Galaxy S9 on February 25, 2018, released the Galaxy S8 on April 21, 2017 and, going even further back in time, released the Galaxy S7 on March 12, 2016.
As for the price, it will certainly be very high. According to rumors, this time Samsung has produced 3 models of 5.8″, 6.1″ and 6.4″ with price ranges ranging from 700 to $ 1,350 depending on the cut and version chosen. According to rumors, on this front seems to have taken the same road Apple with iPhone XR: the Galaxy S10 Lite, the cheapest model, will be as powerful as the most expensive models. The S10+, on the other hand, could have the most advanced features of Note 9.
But the surprises of Samsung for 2019 do not end here: for the end of the year another top class is expected (the new Note 10 ?), Which according to rumors will be the first 5G smartphone of the Korean house.
Samsung Galaxy S10: display, design and camera
The well-known leaker Ice Universe has posted a picture of a borderless smartphone that some believe may be a prototype of the Galaxy S10. The picture shows a telephone with a large borderless display, without a notch, without keys and extremely clean design.
For months now, rumor has it that Samsung is working on a fingerprint reader under the ultrasonic screen, and perhaps has found a way to really enter it. If it is confirmed officially, the one leaked online could be one of the most exciting technological advances in the mobile sector in recent years.
The Samsung Galaxy S10 would in fact be the first true smartphone with a full-screen display. It is not excluded that for the new Samsung S10 can create an extraordinary display, a Super AMOLED 4K.
A design similar to that of the Galaxy Note, but with a big news: the dual front camera cut out on the screen. On the other hand, the camera on the back will be triple and placed horizontally. The S10 should have a 3.5mm headphone port, a glass back shell and be available in new colors: silver, green, black, light blue and pink. The rumors agree that the Galaxy S10 will not have the notch, thus differentiating itself from the other top of the range Android and iPhone; will have a flat Infinity-O display that precisely eliminates the notch of the front camera in favor of a real hole in the screen.
According to the head of the Bell The Bell Galaxy S10 will have the 3D detection camera, technology similar to Apple’s FaceID. S9 and S9 Plus instead rely on a less secure 2D recognition system, combined with the iris scanner. This facial recognition solution can not currently be used to authenticate access to Samsung Pay or its Secure Folder function.
Processor and performance
And under the body? Most likely the Galaxy S10 will be powered by Exynos 9820, octa-core chipset built on 8nm CPU. This translates into a reduction in energy consumption and a better performance offer. This version of the processor also has an integrated neural processing unit that allows you to perform operations related to artificial intelligence up to 7 times faster than 9810.
Also the RAM could have a big update because Samsung has announced that it has developed a 10nm processor-based 8GB RAM. A report has also been released that even speaks of a 12GB RAM, but a forecast that seems excessive. As for storage space, we can expect a minimum storage capacity of 128GB, so models available in the 128GB, 256GB and 512GB cuts.
Some South Korean sources claim that the high-end S10 will have two front and three rear cameras (a 12MP wide-angle lens, a 16MP super wide-angle lens and a 13MP telephoto lens), but this is the high-end model. The middle one will have dual cameras both forward and back.
As for the 5G connectivity, we know that Samsung will join the list of companies that promise to launch 5G smartphone in 2019 (such as OnePlus and Motorola) but we do not know if it will do with the Galaxy S10 or (more likely) with the next Note in output in autumn 2019.
