There have already been tons and tons of leaks about Samsung Galaxy S10’s design and features. But there was little clarity on its pricing, storage options, accessories, and availability. Now fresh leaks have revealed the Galaxy S10 price, storage, and a bunch of other details.
Samsung fans expect the company to give the S10 a design makeover to celebrate the 10th anniversary of its most successful smartphone lineup. The Korean company is not going to disappoint them, if leaks are to be believed.
Galaxy S10 to debut on February 20
A verified source familiar with Samsung’s plans told Gizmodo UK that the company would launch three different variants of Galaxy S10 on February 20 next year, a few days before the Mobile World Congress (MWC) kicks off in Barcelona. Samsung has traditionally unveiled new Galaxy S handsets a day before the MWC event. The next year’s MWC will be held between February 25-28.
According to Gizmodo UK, pre-orders will go live on February 20 itself. The phones will go on sale on March 8th, 2019. By comparison, this year’s Galaxy S9 was unveiled on February 25th and went on sale on March 16th.
As previous leaks have indicated, Samsung is developing the new flagship under the codename Beyond. There will be three devices: a 5.8-inch Galaxy S10 Lite with a flat display, a 6.1-inch Galaxy S10 with curved Super AMOLED screen, and a larger Galaxy S10 Plus with 6.4-inch Super AMOLED display.
Galaxy S10 price in the UK
Talking about the Galaxy S10 price, the source revealed that the Galaxy S10 Lite is going to cost £699 ($881). The flat-screen phone will be available with 128GB storage.
The regular Galaxy S10 price will be £799 ($1,007) for the 128GB version and £999 ($1,260) for the 512GB variant.
The 6.4-inch Galaxy S10 Plus will be available in 128GB, 512GB, and 1TB internal storage. The 128GB version would cost £899 ($1,134), the 512GB model will set you back by £1,099 ($1,386), while the 1TB variant is going to cost a staggering £1,399 ($1,765).
All the prices above are for the UK market. These prices are unlikely to be converted to the USD. Instead, Samsung could transfer them over in the US. For instance, the Galaxy S10 Lite could start at $699, the Galaxy S10 price could start at $799 while the Galaxy S10 Plus could cost $899 for the base model.
Samsung and other smartphone vendors have been bumping up the prices of their flagship models to boost their revenues as sales growth has slowed in recent years. The Korean company is introducing the lower-specced Galaxy S10 Lite to compete with the likes of OnePlus 6T and Xiaomi’s Pocophone.
Rumored Galaxy S10 specs
According to the rumor mill, Samsung was also working on a fourth variant with six cameras and 5G technology. It’s unclear whether that variant will find its way onto the store shelves.
