Samsung Electronics Co. said on Friday it would roll out its next flagship smartphone, the Galaxy S10, on February 20. Samsung said it will host an Unpacked event at San Francisco’s Bill Graham Civic Auditorium on February 20 to showcase the new Galaxy model, with a separate event scheduled for London, Yonhap news reported. The gathering will bring together 3,000 journalists and officials from Samsung’s global partners, it said.
Samsung’s planned rollout of the new Galaxy model is about a week earlier than usual. The tech giant has usually released its new Galaxy smartphones at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona in late February. It will also be Samsung’s first Unpacked gathering in San Francisco, close to the headquarters of arch-rival Apple.
Samsung unveiled the Galaxy S3 in London and hosted Unpacked events for the Galaxy S4 and S8 in New York. This photo provided by Samsung Electronics Co. on January 11 shows a teaser poster for Samsung’s “Unpacked” event for its upcoming flagship smartphone, the Galaxy S10.
The Galaxy S10 lineup is said to include three smartphones- Galaxy S10, S10 Plus and a Galaxy S10 Lite variant. Also, there might be the fourth variant with 5G support coming later this year. The Galaxy S10 Lite has already paid its visit to various benchmark portals including Geekbench, while we’ve seen various renders of Galaxy S10 and S10 Plus.
