South Korean consumer electronics company Samsung has announced that it will launch its next Galaxy S flagship on February 20th. Continuing its tradition of launching flagship phones at the beginning of every year, the Galaxy S10 will be unveiled at a special UNPACKED event in San Francisco. Unlike the previous Galaxy S9, the device will not be launched at MWC (Mobile World Congress) which is scheduled to begin five days later.
This year marks the 10th anniversary of Samsung’s Galaxy S series. The Galaxy S10 is rumored to launch in three variants – Galaxy S10, S10 Plus and S10 Lite. The S10 will feature a new ‘Infinity-O’ display with an in-display cutout for the front camera. Other device highlights include a 6.4-inch AMOLED screen, in-display fingerprint scanner and a triple rear camera module on the Plus variant. There are also rumors that the device will come with 5G connectivity.
The standard S10 and lower-end Lite model will come with toned down specs like a slightly smaller display and dual rear cameras. The S10 is expected to feature an in-display fingerprint scanner just like the Plus model, whereas the Lite variant will come with a standard fingerprint scanner.
Samsung hasn’t officially confirmed any details regarding the Galaxy S10 in its invite. The company also teased the ‘Infinity Flex’ foldable smartphone in November 2018 and could unveil the device alongside S10. With the event date and location set, the countdown begins. For the Indian audience, the UNPACKED event will be live-streamed on Samsung’s official website at 12:30am IST, on February 21st.
