The new Galaxy S10 will debut next month

The new Galaxy S10 will debut next month

Codenamed "Beyond 0", the Galaxy S10 Lite is expected to sport a 5.8-inch (1080x2280 pixels) display with a hole drilled in the glass to accommodate the front camera, something which Samsung calls an Infinity-O display that was showcased by the company back in November.

Funnily enough, the Galaxy S10 range of three phones is also reported to be launching at an event on Wednesday 20 February in San Francisco.

The author travelled to CES 2019 as a guest of Samsung and Dell. In 2019, Samsung will expand the Family Hub platform across more models.

The report mentions that there had been a discussion at Samsung about changing the place and timing of the Galaxy S10 launch.

CES is the first major trade show of the year. After letting slip about the Note 9 before it launched, he has now also revealed some details about Samsung's highly anticipated foldable phone - which is on track for being a world-first. It's presumed that Samsung chose to launch the Galaxy S10 early to undercut Huawei's possible launch of its first foldable smartphone at MWC. Only the top-end Galaxy S10 Plus might feature a dual-camera at the front, which also means that this addition will command a higher price.

It is presumed that Samsung could have moved forward the announcement by taking into account Huawei's possible debut of its first foldable smartphone at MWC in late February.

The interface has been completely redesigned from the ground up.

Samsung has unveiled the next generation of its Family Hub refrigerator, aiming to bring the family together in the kitchen while freeing users up to focus on what's important to them.

Previously, Samsung's best estimate was sometime in 2019, which, together with a rumor that the company hasn't even decided on a final design for the foldable phone, did not instill optimism. The phone's display cycled through a canned demo which showed off some of its functions, though it did not show its 5G capabilities in the process, which is probably why very few people were interested in it. But could there be more to look forward to than the Galaxy S10 and Galaxy S10+?
