A new reports surfaced over the Internet suggests that Samsung Electronics could release the Galaxy S10 and Galaxy S10 Plus in January 2019, while the new Galaxy X foldable smartphone lineup will be launched in February of the same year. However, a notoriously reliable leakster claims that it’s actually the other way around.
The Samsung Galaxy S10 and the Galaxy S10 Plus is indeed to release in February during the 2019 Mobile World Congress (MWC), while the Galaxy X will be announced in January during the The International Consumer Electronics Show (CES), according to Ice Universe (@UniverseIce). If the latest intelligent report is to be believed, then it means that the South Korean technology giant’s new foldable smartphone will be available in the wild sometime in February 2019.
Samsung Electronics is widely anticipated to only produce around 300,000 and 500,000 units of the Galaxy X foldable smartphone. This is a way for the South Korean OEM to determine the marketability of the impending mobile handset.
What’s more fascinating about this new report is that the Korean technology firm seems to be keeping its usual annual release cycle schedule for its Galaxy S series next year. The Galaxy S10 and its larger sibling will be made public at MWC 2019, like the current Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus flagships, as pointed out by other publication. This may mean that the OEM isn’t too concerned regarding the disappointing sales of this year’s Galaxy S lineup. It was initially believed that the company would opt for a January launch for the Galaxy S10 and Galaxy S10 Plus, so that it could make up for the slothful sales of the Galaxy S9 lineup.
The Samsung Galaxy S10 is speculated to ship in three models: a 5.8-inch variant with the traditional “flat” screen display and a read-facing single-lens camera, a 5.8-inch model with a curved Super AMOLED display and dual-lens shooter, and a higher end 6.3-inch model that will have three camera sensors. It was also purportedly reported that Samsung Electronics could actually enlarge the size of the 6.3-inch model to 6.44-inch as a countermeasure for Apple’s rumored 6.46-inch iPhone X Plus.
This would also be the first time ever that the Korean mobile phone maker to introduce three models of its latest Galaxy S lineup. It’s practical that this is part of Samsung’s new master plan to boost its Galaxy S series sales in 2019. As of late, there’s no enough definite intelligence yet on how these three forthcoming smartphones will differ in terms of their respective specs.
Android fans are still anticipating for the launch of the Galaxy Note 9 later this year. The company has already threw out invites for the Samsung Unpacked launch event in New York City on August 9. It’s widely expected that the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 will be launched during the said press event. The oversized mobile device has already passed through the FCC and it’s been confirmed that the S Pen stylus will be equipped with operations thanks to its Bluetooth support.
