Samsung is holding their next Unpacked event in San Francisco in less than a month. This is where the company is expected to unveil a working version of the Galaxy F foldable phone they revealed last year as well as the new Galaxy S10 range.

In a press release, the company says that the new devices “promise to usher in new Galaxy experiences based on 10 years of innovations.”

If the numerous S10 leaks are anything to go by, Samsung is pushing ahead with their Infinity-O display technology as well as in-display fingerprint scanners.

From Left to Right: S10E, S10 and S10+


The first credible leak comes from Evan Blass (@evleaks) shows the three devices that make up the Galaxy S10 range.

Samsung’s entry-level S10 is rumoured to be called the S10E. The handset has a rear-facing dual-camera setup, unlike the S10 and S10+ which both feature a triple-camera configuration.

All of the new handsets appear to have a 3.5mm headphone jack, which makes Samsung one of the last companies to retain this on their flagship devices.

What no-one saw coming is the rumour that Samsung is including a cryptocurrency wallet in the Galaxy S10:

if Samsung jumps onto the cryptocurrency train, it could mean a huge uptake by other handset manufacturers.

Wondering which colours the S10 family will be available in, and more importantly, how much it will cost you?

According to Android Authority, the handsets will be available in the following colours:

  • S10E – Black, White, Yellow and Green
  • S10 – Black, White and Green
  • S10+ – Black, White, Green and two special edition colours

while this is what European customers can expect to pay for the S10 family:

  • S10 Lite 6/128 GB to 779 euros (R12 105)
  • S10 6/128 GB to 929 euros (R14 435)
  • S10 8/512 GB to 1179 euros (R18 320)
  • S10 Plus 6/128 GB at 1049 euros (R16 300)
  • S10 Plus 8/512 GB to 1299 euros (R20 185)
  • S10 Plus 12/1 TB at 1599 euros (R24 845)

We’ll be live in Johannesburg with Samsung South Africa from 9pm (SAST) on 20 February for the unveiling of the Galaxy S10.
