Latest leaks from Gizmodo reveal some interesting insight about the upcoming flagship from Samsung. Ever since Samsung introduced new displays at its developer’s conference back in November there has been a lot of speculation and hype around Samsung’s upcoming Galaxy S10, it is expected to be Samsung’s first flagship which will feature the infinity O display.

According to the leaks, there will be a total of three S10 models which will come with the Infinity-O design, the regular S10, S10 Plus and the new flat screen S10 Lite. According to the leaks, S10 Plus will be the most expensive phone and will cross the $1000 mark, while the S10 Lite will be the so-called more budget-friendly phone.

  • The S10 Lite will have a 5.8-inch screen and 128GB of storage for £669 ($846).
  • The standard S10 will have a 6.1-inch screen, shipping with either 128GB or 512GB of storage for £799 and £999, respectively ($1011 and $1264).
  • The S10 Plus will have a 6.4-inch screen and the choice of 128GB, 512GB, or 1TB of storage, costing £899, £1,099 and £1,399 ($1137, $1391, and $1770).

One reason behind these shocking prices could be the fact that, since the market is maturing, people are now less inclined towards buying a new phone, in order to cover that loss, Samsung is now increasing the average price per unit of its upcoming flagships, so that it can cover up the loss for the fewer units sold. Apple has already started implementing on this strategy, as it was evident from the fact that the cheapest iPhone released this year was iPhone XR which costs $750 compared to last year’s iPhone 8 which cost $699.

Launch date

According to Gizmodo, Galaxy S10 will be launched on February 20, 2019, a bit earlier if you compare it to last year’s S9 launch which was released on February 25, 2019.
