Samsung Galaxy S10 Rumors
Samsung Galaxy S10 rumors are starting to pickup as push deeper into 2019.
According to Korean site The Bell, a publication that has a decent track record with Samsung rumored, the Galaxy S10 is codenamed “Beyond.” This information has been backed up by a well-known leaker in China.
The Galaxy S8 was known as “Dream” while the Galaxy S9 project was codenamed “Star” internally. The Galaxy Note 9 is reportedly known as “Crown.”
Thanks to internal testing, we also know the Galaxy S10 model numbers ahead of time. According to a report, two Galaxy S10 models are known as the SM-G970F and SM-G975F. Another rumored Galaxy S10 model is known as SM-G973F.
Several Galaxy S10 models have been certified by the FCC in the United States and the devices are reportedly in mass production ahead of their debut in late February. And now that plans are firming up we’re seeing a ton of hardware and software rumors trickle out.
Reports point to enhanced cameras, a new processor, tons of storage and RAM, faster wireless charging, an improved fingerprint sensor, and large Infinity Displays with some notable upgrades. We’re also expecting 5G support for major cellular networks in the United States.
The Galaxy S10 release is still a few days away, but the upcoming flagship should be on your radar if you’re looking for a new device. That doesn’t necessarily mean you should wait for the Galaxy S10 to arrive though.
While some of you might want to hold out for Samsung’s upcoming announcements, others are better off buying another device before the next Galaxy S flagship arrives on shelves.
In this guide we’ll take you through some reasons to wait for the Samsung Galaxy S10 and some reasons why you might want to pass.
Wait Because the Galaxy S10 Launch is Close
If you aren't in a rush, wait.
At this point it looks like most Galaxy S10 models will launch in early 2019.
Samsung's confirmed a launch on February 20th in San Francisco and it's there that we expect to learn all about Samsung's plans for this year's Galaxy.
The company's partners are starting to tease the Galaxy S10 launch and they're offering signups for those interesting in buying Samsung's new flagship.
A report from another site claims Samsung will launch the device in India on March 16th with a release coming a little bit later on March 15th.
The company is going to offer a free pair of Galaxy Buds to those who pre-order a Galaxy S10 model. The pre-order period will supposedly extend from February 20th to March 7th.
If you don't need a new smartphone today, and you're interested in Samsung's Next Big Thing (and a free pair of Galaxy Buds), hang around until February/March.
And if you're really interested, think about RSVPing to try the device, in person, on February 20th. You'll need a Samsung account to reserve your spot.
