At today's glitzy Unpacked event in San Francisco, Samsung unveiled a raft of new products, some of which are mostly aspirational for the time being. One device the company will hope to sell a boatload of in the coming months is the Galaxy S10e, a new cheaper variant in the popular series. It's a departure from the norm for Samsung, and a response to growing consumer unrest at the rising price of high-end flagship phones. It also serves to counter Apple's more affordable iPhone XR, obvious from the identical $749 starting price and variety of bright colors being made available. Read More
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
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
The design of the Galaxy S10e is no secret thanks to press renders showing a very similar looking device to the S10 and S10+. It is expected to be a more affordable option to its siblings while offering a similar experience with an edge-to-edge display, despite marginally larger bezels.
A new image has surfaced that offers an up close and personal look at the display cutout that will be used to house the front-facing camera. Like the hole-punch or not, this is the approach Samsung has settled on for its 2019 answer to the notch. That is until it puts the camera in the S Pen or uses the under-panel sensor it previously demoed to eliminate any front-facing camera. 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
