Samsung’s Galaxy S10 has been thoroughly leaked at this point, but there are still a few mysteries left to be solved. A new report attempts to answser lingering questions about the lineup’s price, launch date, and storage specs.
A source at a major tech retailer told Gizmodo UK that the Galaxy S10 series is going to get launched on February 20, 5 days before the MWC 2019 kicks off. The handsets are apparently set to go up for pre-orders on the same day and hit shelves on March 8.
The tipster claims there will be 3 different options to choose from – a flat Galaxy S10 Lite, a curved Galaxy S10, and a curved Galaxy S10+. Each will have a hole punched in the display’s top-right corner to house the selfie camera, officially dubbed an Infinity-O design.
Interestingly, the report confirms something which has been whispered about till now. Samsung is going to allow the Galaxy S10 to wirelessly charge other phones through a feature called Powershare. The brand is also going to debut its ultrasonic in-display fingerprint scanner with the flagship lineup, although the Galaxy S10 Lite may grab a side-mounted sensor instead.
Samsung Galaxy S10 Price
As for size, the Galaxy S10 Lite, Galaxy S10, and Galaxy S10+ might measure 5.8-inch, 6.1-inch, and 6.4-inch, respectively. The first is apparently set to be priced at £669 (roughly $846 or Rs 60674) for 128GB of storage. This is notably £70 cheaper than the Galaxy S9, making it a solid option for those who want to spend less money and avoid a curved screen.
The standard Galaxy S10 could go for £799 (approx $1011 or Rs 72496) for its 128GB of ROM option and £999 (around $1264 or Rs 90644) for its 512GB of ROM iteration. The premium Galaxy S10+ may crank things up to £899 (approx $1138 or Rs 90638) for the 128GB version, £1099 (about $1390 or Rs 99711) for the 512GB model, and an eye-watering £1399 (roughly $1770 or Rs 126930) for the 1TB variant.
That last one could be the 5G Galaxy S10 which is expected to grab 6 cameras and a 6.7-inch screen. This fourth option might come out later than the others at some point in Q2 2019.
