The latest Samsung flagship phone is set to be announced later this month. Read on to find out everything we know so far about the Galaxy S10.

When will the Galaxy S10 be announced?

The new handset will be unveiled at a Samsung Unpacked event on 20th February 2019 at 7pm. You can sign up for a reminder here on the Samsung website.

When will the Galaxy S10 be released?

The latest rumours suggest the Samsung Galaxy S10 will be available in stores from Friday 8th March. Not long to wait now! 

Is Galaxy S10 another name for the Galaxy X?

Nope. They’re two different handsets. The Galaxy S10 is next in line after the Galaxy S9. The Galaxy X is not part of the ‘S’ series and will be Samsung’s first foldable mobile device.

… a bit clearer than the whole ‘iPhone-X-is-actually-pronounced-iPhone-ten-but-where’s-the-iPhone-nine?’ thing.

How many versions of the Galaxy S10 will there be and how much will they cost?

Three versions of the Galaxy S10 will be available in March.

The top-of-the-range (and largest) model is the Galaxy S10+, which unsurprisingly has the best specs and also *may* be the only handset to come 5G enabled. The 1TB version will set you back a cool £1,399.

The standard Galaxy S10 is slightly smaller, and won't be far off the S10+ in terms of performance, but storage capacity only goes up to 512GB (which to be fair, is still massive). This version will cost £1000. 

The Samsung Galaxy S10e will be a stripped down version of the Galaxy S10 (similar to the approach Apple took with the iPhone Xr) and the 128GB version will cost £700.

What will it look like?

The Galaxy S10 will debut a small, ‘punch-hole’ style front-facing camera in the top corner of the display, significantly reducing the amount of screen-real-estate usually needed for a notch. Huge moves.

Samsung is also trying to push the boundaries by reducing the size of the bezel compared to previous models. More screen and less edge is always a good thing.

The full S10 devices will come in a wider range of colours at launch, including white, green, black and a (rather fetching) pale pink.

What new features will it have?

The Galaxy S10 will have a faster processor than the S9, likely to be the Exynos 9 Series 9820 – leading to better performance and, potentially, improved battery life too.

The standard S10 and S10+ will have a three-lens camera array like the Galaxy A7, which will deliver improved stills and video capture. All good news.

The S10e is likely to have a 2 camera array (though we'd expect that to still take fantastic photos).

All three devices will still have the standard 3.5mm headphone jack. Music to our ears (chortle).
