Samsung Galaxy S10, the upcoming premium smartphone which will mark the 10th anniversary of the Galaxy S-series, has been in the news for a while now and while the Samsung Galaxy S10 and the Samsung Galaxy S10 Lite are also expected to launch this year, the Samsung Galaxy S10 launch date seems to be have confirmed as the South Korean manufacturer will be hosting the official Galaxy Unpacked event on February 20 in San Francisco, United States.
Samsung just teased the Galaxy Unpacked event 2019 via its official Twitter handle and also shared a blog on its official website stating that everyone will be able to watch the launch event Live via the website. As mentioned above, we are expecting a total of three smartphones in the series this year which will include the conventional Samsung Galaxy S10, the Samsung Galaxy S10 Plus, and the Samsung Galaxy S10 Lite or S10 E.
A recent report states that the Samsung Galaxy S10 Lite won’t come with an in-display fingerprint scanner and might feature a side-mounted scanner. This could also mean that the Galaxy S10 E or the Galaxy S10 Lite will be more affordable in comparison to the Galaxy S10 and Galaxy S10 Plus. However, it could also turn out that said Samsung Galaxy S10 Lite is launched as the direct competitor to the iPhone XR, but with a more affordable price tag.
