What to expect

From cameras and fingerprint sensors integrated into the screen to 5G network support, the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S10 line looks set to significantly disrupt the status quo in the smartphone space.

When will the Samsung Galaxy S10 come out? Launching on 20 February 2019, expected to be available in early to mid-March 2019.
What's new about the Samsung Galaxy S10? In-screen fingerprint sensor and front camera, 5G support, additional low-cost model to join the S10 and S10+
How much will the Samsung Galaxy S10 cost? $1,000 – $1,500+

After playing it relatively safe with the Galaxy S9, Samsung seems to be swinging for the fences with the groundbreaking design of the Galaxy S10.

Alongside Apple, Samsung is arguably the biggest name in the smartphone business. Its Galaxy S handsets go toe-to-toe with the latest iPhones, outperforming practically all other Android smartphones in terms of both popularity and features.

Like Apple, Samsung iterates on its Galaxy S line each and every year. Sleeker designs, improved performance and even-steeper price tags are typically the order of the day, but for the Galaxy S10 line, Samsung appears to have loftier ambitions in mind.

Design

  • More screen space thanks to an under-screen fingerprint sensor and front-facing camera
  • Front fingerprint sensor may create issues for screen protectors
  • Goodbye notch, hello "holes"
  • New cheaper model will not feature an Infinity display
  • 5G model may feature an even larger display

Camera

  • Triple-array camera for the S10+
  • 3D camera for facial recognition
  • ToF sensors on top-end 5G model

Performance

  • Snapdragon 855 or Exynos 9820 promises enhanced performance in AI tasks
  • 5G connectivity may be an option

Battery life

  • 3,400mah rumoured
  • Reverse wireless charging
  • Wireless charging all but certain, but how fast?

Early outlook

  • Exciting features and a broader range of handsets bode very well for the Samsung Galaxy S10

Pricing and availability

  • The Samsung Galaxy S10 will debut on 20 February 2019
  • Pricing will likely hover around $1,000 for the new cheaper model, $1,200+ for the standard Galaxy S10 and $1,500+ for the Samsung Galaxy S10+

So when will we see the Samsung Galaxy S10 debut?

It was at first rumoured to appear at CES 2019, but that didn't happen. Instead, Samsung has now announced a launch for the Galaxy S10 to take place on 20 February 2019 in San Francisco, a week before Mobile World Congress 2019. That's one way to grab all the headlines for yourself, we guess.

Samsung will also show off -- or at least tease -- its foldable phone, the Galaxy F (or possibly Galaxy X) at the Galaxy S10 launch, although it's not expected to make that phone available until much later this year.

Samsung doesn't tend to wait all that long between launches of its prime Galaxy S phones and actual retail availability, so we'd expect to see the Galaxy S10 family arrive in Australia in mid-to-late March 2019.
