Galaxy S 10 is the trending upcoming smartphone in 2019. The Samsung Galaxy 9 is one of the best smartphones of 2018, but tech being the beast it is, we are already looking ahead to next year’s Galaxy S10. Here’s everything we know so far, including the Galaxy S10’s rumoured specs, release date and price, plus all the latest Galaxy S10 news, leaks and images.
The launch of the Galaxy Note 9 this autumn, Samsung’s next flagship smartphone launch will be the Galaxy S10 in Feb 2019. And while it might seem to be light years away, the S10 rumours are already flooding in.
The latest report, courtesy of Korean site The Bell, claims that the S10 won’t feature an iris-scanner. Instead, it’s said to feature a face-recognising 3D-sensing camera and an in-display fingerprint sensor.
Samsung galaxy S 10 release date and price:
The Samsung Galaxy S10 is likely to launch in early 2019. More specifically we all probably see it at MWC 2019, which takes place from February 25-28
Not only does a leaker claim we all see it then, but Samsung announced the Galaxy S9 range at MWC 2018, so the 2019 show is the most likely release date.
Samsung does not always announce its Galaxy S flagships there, but recent models have all been announced in the first few months of the year, so we had be surprised if we do not see the Samsung Galaxy S 10 by the end of March 2019.
It could arrive earlier, as we might see it in January at CES 2019 if one rumour is to be believed. That means takes place from January 8-11.
whenever it is announced you might not be able to buy it straight away.
When it does go on sale it is sure to cost a lot. There are not any price rumors yet but the Galaxy S9 launched at $719.99 / £739 / AU$1,199, while the Samsung Galaxy S9 Pluswent on sale for $840 / £869 / AU$1,349, so we had expect the Galaxy S 10 range will cost at least that much.

What we want to see in Samsung Galaxy S 10?
As good as the Samsung Galaxy S9 is, it is also rather too similar to the Samsung Galaxy S8, so we hope Samsung changes things up for the S10. Here is what we want to see.
1. A new design
Samsun Galaxy S9 looks almost identical to the Galaxy S8, so it is high time we got a new design from the South Korean company.
Whether that means a notch, a new material or even a foldable phone we all leave to Samsung, but we want to see something new.
3. An in-screen fingerprint scanner
In-screen fingerprint scanners have been rumored for various Samsung phones and the Galaxy S 10 is no exception, but now that other companies have launched commercially available handsets with them we might finally see Samsung roll one out.
Having a scanner in the screen means it does not need to take up space on the front or be awkwardly placed on the back, plus it looks high-tech enough to make owners of other phones very jealous.
This too has been rumored for the Galaxy S 10, so there is a very real chance it will be happen.
4. More vibrant photos
The overall quality of photos taken by the Samsung Galaxy S9 is very high, some lack vibrancy and a few are also more washed out than we had have expected or liked. This is especially true when there is background light, so we had like the Samsung Galaxy S 10 to be able to cope with this better.
6. Better battery life
Battery life is one thing that does not improve with each new phone generation. In fact, sometimes it gets worse. In the case of the Samsung Galaxy S9 and Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus you are only really looking at a day of life.
And that might generally be okay for anyone who does not mind plugging their phone in every night, it’s worth remembering that the battery will start to wear out over time, so a day of life when you buy the phone means less than a day a year or two on.
As such we really want to see improvements to the battery in the Galaxy S 10, whether that’s through a larger unit than the frankly small 3,000mAh one in the Galaxy S9, or just through more efficient hardware and software.
What about the Samsung Galaxy S10’s screen?
Samsung Galaxy S9 still has the best screen on the market today, and we have a hunch that Samsung will aim to keep that crown for as long as it can.
One rumour, from the aforementioned Ice Universe, suggests that Samsung will up the resolution this time around, potentially pushing past the QHD+ if the Galaxy S9 models. The leaker suggests a pixels-per-inch count of 600+ for the handsets, while the S9 currently sits at 570ppi and the S9+ comes in at 530ppi.
Bumping up to 4K resolution would provide a vastly higher ppi count, but would also not suck up loads more power from the battery. Perhaps Samsung will shoot for something in the middle for its next Super AMOLED wonder.
