Samsung’s Galaxy S10 is still likely months away, but rumors about the phone just keep on coming.
The latest among them comes courtesy of Gizmodo UK, which says a source at a “major tech retailer” gave them the exact launch date, release date, storage and screen sizes and even prices in the UK for all variants of the phone.
According to the report, the Galaxy S10 will be announced on February 20, a week before the start of Mobile World Congress 2019. That’s also when the pre-orders will start, with the release date being March 8.
The phone will come in three screen basic variants, with three screen sizes: The S10 Lite will have a 5.8-inch screen, the S10 will have a 6.1-inch screen, and the S10+ will have a 6.4-inch screen. Note that leaker Evan Blass published the exact same screen sizes and variants a few days ago. Also note that these names aren’t set in stone yet; Samsung internally calls the device “Beyond.”
The most important bits from the new report are UK prices and storage sizes. The Galaxy S10 Lite will come with 128GB storage, with the price of £669. The S10 variant with 128GB of storage will cost £799, while the version with 512GB of storage will cost £999.
Finally, the biggest and most powerful device in this bunch, the S10+, will start at £899 for the 128GB version, £1099 for the 512GB version, and an astonishing £1,399 for the version with 1TB of storage.
These prices would look horrendous if converted into U.S. dollars, but prices in the UK for Samsung phones are typically higher than the prices in the U.S.
Gizmodo’s report has a few more details about the phone(s). The S10 won’t support 5G at launch, but support for the technology might arrive by mid-2019. It also confirmed earlier reports that all of the phones will have Samsung’s new Infinity-O, punch-hole display, as well as an in-display ultrasonic fingerprint scanner.
