A new Samsung Galaxy S10 leak has revealed that the Samsung Galaxy S10 launch date will be February 20 and the Samsung Galaxy S10 release date will be March 18.
These dates were leaked by a source who spoke to Gizmodo UK and the dates fall in line with previous rumors that revealed that Samsung would reveal its new flagship during or before MWC2019.
The good thing about the new leak is that it lays out pricing and specs. The leak also affirms previous rumors of three Samsung Galaxy S10 “Beyond” phones (the Samsung’s internal name for the handset series, which is assumed to be called Samsung Galaxy S10).
There will be the standard version, Plus version and a cheaper version with a flat screen. (non-curved), which is rumored to be called Samsung Galaxy S10 Lite.
According to the new rumor, the phone will come with the “Infinity-O” hole for its front-facing camera which will be placed in one corner, lending more credence to its heavily-rumored design feature.
It is also thought that Galaxy S10 will be able to wirelessly charge other devices with its new feature called Powershare. This is something only Huawei Mate 20 Pro is currently capable of doing.
According to the latest leak, Samsung Galaxy S10 will sport an in-screen fingerprint scanner people have been clamoring for all these while. We still have no word whether it will use facial recognition or not.
Specs and sizes
According to the leak source, the screen sizes for the three S10 handsets will be a 6.1-inch for the S10, 5.8-inch screen for the S10 Lite and a 6.4-inch screen for the S10 Plus.
The leaker listed the storage sizes and prices for each of the three Samsung Galaxy S10 models as follow:
- The standard S10 (curved screen) will come with 128GB or 512GB of storage and cost £799 & £999, respectively.
- The 5.8-inch Galaxy S10 Lite will come with 128GB of storage and cost £669.
- The Galaxy S10 Plus will come with 128GB, 512GB or 1TB and cost £899, £1,099 and £1,399, respectively.
Of course, we could calculate that in other countries currencies but we can’t be certain the conversion will still hold by the time the smartphones are out.
The leak did not detail RAM or the processor the S10 would run, but it is almost certain that the S10 Plus will run the yet-to-be-released Snapdragon 855.
Conclusively, the big question for smartphones in 2019 is 5G. The leak source tells Gizmodo UK that the S10 will not support 5G at launch, but will arrive late in the second quarter of the year.
