    Samsung distributor claims Galaxy S10 Edge name, pre-installed screen protectors

    Some interesting information has surfaced today regarding the Galaxy S10 from an official Samsung distributor. We have already told you that the Galaxy S10 accessories will include the case and cover options that we get for its flagship smartphones every year.

    It may be kicking things up a notch next year by pre-installing screen protectors on all three models of the Galaxy S10. Speaking of models, Samsung is said to revive the “Edge” branding as one model will be called the Galaxy S10 Edge.

    Galaxy S10 Lite's flat display may necessitate return of the “Edge”

    Many of you will be aware that Samsung stopped using the “Edge” branding with the Galaxy S8. The first models with its Infinity Display were called the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+. It has kept the same branding for the Galaxy S9 series as well.

    Samsung is now gearing up to launch three models of the Galaxy S10. Previous reports have said that the three models will be called the Galaxy S10 Lite, Galaxy S10 and Galaxy S10+. Retailer MobileFun hears from its official Samsung distributor that the Galaxy S10 – the model with a 6.1-inch display – will actually be called the Galaxy S10 Edge.

    It seems odd to use the Edge branding for the model which has long been expected to be called the Galaxy S10. It would be a direct successor to the Galaxy S9 after all. Samsung used this branding in the past to differentiate between models with flat and curved displays. Given reports that the Galaxy S10 Lite might have a flat display, perhaps it wants to reiterate that point by calling the next model in this lineup the Galaxy S10 Edge.

    The distributor also mentions that all three models of the Galaxy S10 will come with a screen protector installed out of the box. This is something that Chinese smartphone manufacturers like Huawei have long done. It would be appreciated by many customers as screen protectors are often the first accessories that customers purchase for their expensive flagship phones.

    The list of official accessories shared by the retailer mentions the LED View Cover, Silicone Cover, Protective Standing Cover, Leather Cover and Clear View Cover. The color options for these accessories include Berry Pink, Yellow and Green, the new color options that have already been highlighted in earlier reports. We exclusively reported last week that the Galaxy S10 Lite may be the only model to come in Yellow.

    The name of the device won't really matter much to most customers as long as it meets their expectations from what will be Samsung's 10th Anniversary Galaxy S flagship. It goes without saying that this isn't set in stone yet. No further evidence has surfaced to support this Galaxy S10 Edge theory even if it sounds plausible on paper.

    However, would you appreciate if Samsung does ship the models with a screen protector pre-installed? Share your thoughts with us in the comments section.
