Samsung Galaxy S10 release date and pricing revealed after huge leak

It was confirmed that a leaked Galaxy S10 case sample has a left hole for a 3.5mm earphone jack. It is unknown if Samsung will also release accessories that take advantage of this functionality, though we wouldn't be too surprised if they did. As per the report, the Galaxy S10 codnamed "Beyond" will be unveiled ahead of Mobile World Congress 2019 on February 20 at Samsung's Galaxy Unpacked event.

The Seoul-based tech conglomerate said in private correspondence with CoinTelegraph the claims that it bakes a cryptocurrency product to be integrated into its Galaxy S10 are simply unfounded. In the United Kingdom, the smartphone is said to go on pre-orders on the same date with shipments starting from March 8.

The Samsung Galaxy S10 leaks just keep coming - and this one could be the biggest of all.

It's worth noting that while this pricing may be accurate for the United Kingdom, converting the price into your own currency won't necessarily give you the cost for your own country.

Although Samsung's current S8 and S9 phones feature a unique curved Infinity display they both have bezels at the top and bottom. The report also mentions that Samsung will give the Galaxy S10 a feature called PowerShare that'll let you wirelessly charge another device. Notably, the Plus-sized variant is said to offer dual selfie cameras, so expect a wider display hole. The same report also gives the United Kingdom pricing of all three models. This time it seems like the + variant of S10 will feature not only three cameras on the back but also two on the front. In other words, the entry-level Galaxy S10 could cost $799, the entry-level Galaxy S10 Plus could cost $899, and so on. Adnan Farooqui, the senior executive editor at SamMobile, was quoted as saying that "after hearing about the trademarks for Samsung's blockchain and cryptocurrency software, we made a decision to dig around a little deeper".

At the back there are three cameras: A 24Mp main sensor with a large f/1.7 aperture, a 10Mp telephoto lens at f/2.4 opening and a third 5Mp sensor used for depth sensing. This confirms the previous reports which highlighted the deficiency of the iris scanner on the Galaxy S10. This would be the cheapest variant out of the lot and much cheaper than some of the competition as well.
