Samsung Galaxy S10 and Galaxy S10+ smartphones have been making headlines for months now. And the latest report talks about the 5G variant of the smartphone. According to Korea-based publication ETNews, Samsung‘s first 5G-enabled smartphone will be called Galaxy S10 X. It is worth noticing that ‘X’ in the name of the device reportedly stands for 10, since the Galaxy lineup turns ten this year. However, that’s not all that it denotes. It also stands for ‘experience’ and ‘expand’, according to the report.
Samsung Galaxy S10 X will be launched in late March in South Korea and will be unveiled only after other Galaxy S10 variants are launched. The report also says that the ‘fully-loaded’ model will cost between KRW 1.6 million to KRW 1.8 million ($1,425-$1,600).
Contrary to other reports, it has also been said that there will not be a separate Unpacked event at the MWC, which could mean that the 5G variant of the device will be launched on February 20 along with other Galaxy S10 models and the foldable phone. However, we don’t think this piece of information is true considering that Samsung has already announced the Unpacked event for February 20 and there is no other word about the 5G variant being launched on the said date.
It has previously been reported that Samsung Galaxy S10 X will come with a 6.7-inch display that will have an ultrasonic fingerprint scanner embedded on it. The smartphone will reportedly come with a quadruple camera setup on its back panel, much like Samsung Galaxy A9 (2018). Samsung Galaxy S10 X is expected to house a 5,000mAh battery and will reportedly come with more than 10GB of RAM and 1TB of storage. However, it is worth noticing that there is a possibility that 1TB storage means 512GB of internal storage and 512GB of microSD card capacity.
On an unrelated note, the company also hinted yesterday that it may launch its foldable phone Galaxy F along with the three Samsung Galaxy S10 variants on February 20. Samsung has placed two Galaxy Unpacked event banners at Place de la Concorde in Paris. The banners said ‘Unfolding the future’, which can be taken as a direct hint that the company will be seen launching the foldable phone along with other Galaxy S10 models at the event.
