Samsung gave us our first look at the Galaxy S10 5G at a closed-door press briefing yesterday, and boy - is this thing a whole lot of phone. It's the size of a Galaxy Note 9, but slightly thinner and lighter (shockingly), and sports a unique, shimmery silver finish that I quite like. It also has a 5G logo on the back, because of course it does, and... that's about all I can tell you about it as an experience, because Samsung wasn't letting anyone power it on.
But I think we can still say a lot about this phone, even screen-unseen. Read More
Galaxy Unpacked is almost upon us, but if the leaks don't stop, there won't be much left to unpack at the event tomorrow. While renders and hands-on images of the S10 family have been popping up for a few weeks, we now have an official Samsung television commercial that aired a day early in Norway, showing us the Galaxy S10+ in its entirety.

Samsung will host its Unpacked event in San Francisco in a few days, on February 20, to unveil its new flagships. The Korean brand is expected to celebrate the 10th anniversary of its Galaxy S lineup by announcing not one, but several devices. There have been many rumors about these phones since December, and while the wait is almost over, we wanted to give you a summary of what to anticipate next week. Read More
You'd have to be living under a rock not to know what the Galaxy S10 is going to look like at this point. A very big rock. In the 359th GS10 leak so far this year, we get a look at the Ceramic white phone next to the Prism White model. Read More
Samsung will unveil its new flagships on February 20, and the brand seems to acknowledge we already know almost everything about these devices, so much as to let you pre-order them now. The manufacturer has put up a page to let you reserve the "next Galaxy," on which it explicitly says it "know[s] you know what is coming soon," without sharing any details on the handsets themselves, besides the previously published teaser of a potential folding phone.
It is customary for the Korean company to offer savings for people who pre-order its newest handsets and this year is no exception: The reservation process in the US lets you benefit from a $50 credit on accessories for your new Galaxy and allows you to trade in your old phone for an additional discount of up to $550.

Pre-orders for the Samsung Galaxy S10 are set to open up on February 21, with sales not starting until March 8. For those wanting to get some hands-on time with the new devices but don't want to wait until March, Samsung is holding an event at its 837 store in NYC during the Unpacked livestream.
Members of the public will be able to demo the Galaxy S10 at Samsung 837 as soon as the device is officially announced, but you'll need to RSVP to ensure you get a spot. Read More
Given that the Galaxy S10 event is only two weeks away now, it's no surprise that we're seeing more and more leaked images of the phone. Most of the photos are getting a bit repetitive, but something in WinFuture's latest post caught our eye: the Galaxy Buds wirelessly charging from a Galaxy S10+. Read More
All three upcoming devices in the Galaxy S lineup have stopped by the FCC as we approach the February 20 Unpacked event. Before a device is released in the United States, Samsung needs to obtain certification through the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), and typically the reports are made public before the launch of the device. At this point, the certification is a mere formality as we've seen pretty much all there is to discover about the S10 series, including some up close and personal leaks. Nevertheless, some rumored features can be confirmed. Read More
Previous leaks of the Galaxy S10 and S10+ have been somewhat underwhelming. While the S9 and S9+ have minimal bezels and a full 18:9 display, Samsung's upcoming flagships will still have roughly the same size bezels... but with a camera hole at the top right of the screen. WinFuture and 91mobiles have published press images of both phones, and it looks like Samsung is already trying to hide the camera hole. Read More
With increasing capabilities such as 4K video recording, better processing power, and faster download speeds, smartphones are beginning to require more storage space. A few years ago, it was customary for a phone's base version to offer 8GB of internal memory. This figure has evolved over the years, with last year's Galaxy S9 offering a minimum of 64GB, and powerhouses such as the Note 9 having up to 512GB of internal space.
Samsung just revealed it's doubling this number, by announcing the mass production of a 1TB embedded Universal Flash Storage chip. The news comes in less than a month before the Korean manufacturer unveils its new flagship handsets, strongly suggesting a variant of the Galaxy S10 will feature it, as previous rumors had hinted at.
