Galaxy S10 price and release date, 5G variant name possibly revealed

There haven’t been a lot of reports about the Galaxy S10 price and release date so far. One has surfaced from Korea today and is shining light on the pricing and availability details. It does offer some additional information about the different models that Samsung will be releasing.

As we have already discussed in our what to expect from the Galaxy S10 post, three different models of the flagship will be available. They include the 5.8-inch Galaxy S10 Lite, 6.1-inch Galaxy S10 and the 6.4-inch Galaxy S10+. There’s also going to be a 6.7-inch model with 5G. It’s reportedly going to be called the Galaxy S10 X.

Over 10GB of RAM on the Galaxy S10 X?

The Galaxy S10 X is the beast of a device that was previously referred to as the Beyond X. It will feature a 6.7-inch Infinity-O display, a rear quad camera and a front dual camera system. The report mentions that it may also feature 1TB of internal storage and over 10GB of RAM.

It’s also going to be Samsung’s first smartphone with 5G support. No other Galaxy S10 model will have a 5G modem. The Galaxy S10 X will reportedly be released on March 29 for more than 1.8 million won or $1,600. It will only be available in markets where 5G networks have gone live, obviously.

Sales could start on March 8 for non-5G models

As far as the other models are concerned, all three are said to be released on March 8. That’s 16 days after the Galaxy S10 is unveiled on February 20 in San Francisco. Some of you may remember that the Galaxy S9 hit stores around 18 days after it was announced. Prices for the entry-level Galaxy S10 Lite will start at 900,000 won or $800 going up to 1.6 million won or $1,430 for the Galaxy S10+.

The report mentions something that hasn’t been talked about before in relation to the Galaxy S10. The devices may have a “life pattern” mode. It’s described as AI-based automation of the handset’s features. The AI would pick up on the user’s habits and adapt its functionalities to suit each individual user. Samsung has been investing heavily in artificial intelligence so it wouldn’t be surprising to see some sort of AI solution on the Galaxy S10.

None of this information has been officially confirmed by Samsung so do take it with a grain of salt. Not that it doesn’t seem plausible on paper. The 5G Galaxy S10 was always going to be expensive. Given that Samsung doesn’t take more than a couple of weeks to release flagships after they’re announced, the release dates make sense too.

10GB RAM – WTF ??? This is getting ridiculous! Is the OS that crappy that it would need 10GB of RAM? Does it have some new version of ‘super computing DEX’? Can it pop corn? Can it ,shhhh, j*rk me off ? Let’s not forget that this is a device that will spend most of the time – wait for it – in your pocket or on a table top! IMHO, it’s unnecessary specs like this that drive up the cost of these devices in the first place. 4K, 8K encoding/decoding and super slow mo can be handled by a… Read more »

£1100 for a Samsung S10?????
it was £800 last year for S9 – what could possible explain £300 increase

$1430, that’s €1250 for an S10 plus?? As opposed to €900 for an S9 plus? There is something seriously wrong there. No way will the price increase by €350 for the 10+ model. Maybe that’s the 5G phone. There is no way the price of the S10 plus will be more than a thousand dollars.

S10E, S10, S10+, S10X (ten ten?) SERIOUSLY! I cannot still be the only one that thinks this naming is ugly! And no matter what the S10s will be, I’m going back to the Note series this year. I cannot imagine for a second that Samsung has heavily optimised 4 flagship devices! The S series already isn’t on par with the Note, and they have the same processors! Note10, waiting for you!

Note 10 is going to be the same crap, and yes this fragmentation is stupid, in fact the Note should pretty much be part of the same Galaxy line.
