The Galaxy S10 series might be a few months away from its official unveiling but its alleged UK pricing has leaked online. As per Gizmodo UK, the base variant of the Galaxy S10 — dubbed Galaxy S10 Lite — will have 128GB of storage space and start from £669 in the UK.

It will come with a flat OLED screen and a dual-camera setup at the rear. The bigger Galaxy S10 will come with a 6.1-inch curved OLED display and it will be available in 128GB and 512GB storage variants. It will carry a retail price tag of £799 and £999, respectively. It will come with a triple camera set up at the rear which will include a telephoto lens and a wide-angle lens.

Finally, there is the flagship Galaxy S10+ featuring a 6.4-inch curved OLED panel. It will be available in three variants: 128GB, 512GB, and 1TB. The base 128GB variant will start from £899, with the 512GB and 1TB version coming in at £1,099 and £1,399, respectively.

The Galaxy S10 Lite will come with a regular fingerprint scanner, while the S10 and S10+ will make use of an in-display ultrasonic fingerprint sensor from Qualcomm.

As for the unveiling date, Samsung does not intend on unveiling its flagship devices at MWC 2019. Instead, it will be holding an Unpacked event on February 20th, with the device going up for pre-order soon after. It is then expected to hit the retail stores — at least in the UK — from March 8.

The source also confirms that Samsung will be using an Infinity-O display with a punch-hole camera cutout instead of a regular notch. There’s no word on whether Samsung intends to retain the headphone jack or not.

As for the special 5G edition of the Galaxy S10, it will launch sometime in late Q2 in selected European markets.

Our Take

The Galaxy S10 is still nearly three months away from its official launch so it is better to take these reports with a pinch of salt. While these prices and details sound plausible, they are not really new and basically reiterate what we have heard so far from other sources.
