How to Watch Samsung Galaxy S10 Launch Live Stream

How to Watch Samsung Galaxy S10 Launch Live Stream

Samsung was widely expected to announce the S10 series at MWC 2019 in Barcelona as it did for the predecessor S9 series.

That surprising piece of news comes via Korean news site The Korea Herald.

Samsung plans to release its first commercially available 5G phone this year and based on rumors, it will be a Galaxy S10 variant powered by Qualcomm's Snapdragon 855 processor. So we're expecting big things for 2019 if the company wants to reverse the trend.

A Samsung tweet, accompanied by a teaser video, confirms a Galaxy Unpacked event for this date. This will also be the only Galaxy S10 device to sport a flat display, and is rumored to ship with a side-facing fingerprint scanner. As past year showed, Huawei has become Samsung's main rival in the Android market.

Unconfirmed reports suggest prices will start around £669 for the basic model with a 5.8-inch screen and 128GB of storage.

"2019 is Samsung Electronics 50th anniversary and, for the last five decades, we've been committed to bringing meaningful innovations to consumers everywhere", says HS Kim, president and CEO of the consumer electronics division of Samsung Electronics. One of these people, "a high level executive from a customer of Samsung", revealed a few details including that the phone will not show any crease after being bent shut - the one shown off at CES DID leave a crease but apparently this will be fixed in the final version. Unlike the Galaxy S10, the foldable phone will see a limited release.

Sources told The Korea Herald that the 10th edition of Galaxy S phones will be unveiled in the U.S. city - home to world's most innovative tech firms -- one week ahead of the Mobile World Congress 2019 that kicks off in Barcelona, Spain on February 28.

The design of the invite leaves no doubt that Samsung will launch the tenth edition of its flagship phone on February 20. Now, the interesting thing is, this prototype has a notch in the top-right corner, which is something the final unit nearly certainly will not have, as it will be a part of the Galaxy S10 lineup, more on that later.
