With just over a month to go before Samsung finally unveils its Galaxy S10 smartphone , rumours are unsurprisingly circulating about the device.

While Samsung usually launches its Galaxy smartphones at Mobile World Congress, the tech giant is changing things up this year.

Instead, the smartphone will be unveiled at an event in London next month.

Here’s everything you need to know about the Samsung Galaxy S10, including release date and all the biggest rumours.

Release date

Last week, Samsung finally revealed when the Galaxy S10 would be revealed.

The firm tweeted that its Unpacked event will take place in San Francisco on February 20, with a syndicated launch in London.

The event will begin at 19:00 and Mirror Online will be at the London event, covering it live.

It’s unclear how soon the smartphones will be available to buy after launch, but it’s likely to be a couple of weeks.

If you want to be first in line, Carphone Warehouse have already opened up their Samsung S10 pre-registration page, with all sign-ups in with the chance to win a £1,000 Currys PC World giftcard.


Rumours suggest that Samsung will launch three smartphones.

The main release is expected to be the Galaxy S10, while we could also see a larger version called the Galaxy S10+, and a more basic option dubbed the Galaxy S10 Lite.

A report by Gizmodo suggests that the new smartphones will be slightly pricier than last year’s options.

The Galaxy S10 is expected to cost £799 (128GB) or £999 (512GB), while the Galaxy S10+ is expected to be priced at £899 (128GB), £1099 (512GB) or £1399 for the huge 1TB option.

Thankfully, there’s also expected to be a cheaper option available. The Galaxy S10 Lite is predicted to cost £669 (128GB).


Several images have leaked online, showing the alleged Samsung Galaxy S10, S10+ and S10 Lite.

Experts predict that the S10 will have a 6.1-inch display, the S10+ a 6.4-inch display and the S10 Lite a 5.8-inch display.

The images suggest that the smartphones will feature more expansive all-screen designs, with a ‘hole-punch’ front-facing camera embedded in the top-right side of the screen.

Meanwhile on the back of the smartphones there’s expected to be three cameras.

Unlike previous models, which organised the cameras vertically, leaked images indicate that the cameras in the Galaxy S10 will have a horizontal orientation.


Last year, Samsung let it slip that the Galaxy S10 will come in five colour options.

These are black, silver, pink, blue and mint green.

Key Specs

Many key specifications for the smartphones have also been leaked online.

This includes an in-screen fingerprint scanner, alongside an improved 3D face scanner. If true, this would give users more options on how to unlock their smartphone.

In terms of camera, we’re expecting a triple-lens rear camera, made up of 12MP, 13MP and 16MP lenses. The front camera is expected to be dual-lens.

Rumours about the batteries also suggest that the Galaxy S10 phones will have an enormous battery life.

The standard S10 is rumoured to have a 3,500mAH battery, while the S10 could be 3,1000mAh battery.

In terms of power, experts predict the S10 will have either an Exynos 9820 or Snapdragon 855 chipset, offering better power efficiency and performance.
