Samsung is about to take one of its most ambitious product launches yet. The Galaxy S10 Unpacked event, set to take place on Wednesday, is set to cover a staggering number of new devices, some of which could take the smartphone in a bold new direction. The company will be offering a livestream so users can follow the news at home as it occurs.
The Korean technology firm is predicted to potentially unveil five new smartphones. The first is the Samsung Galaxy S10, expected to offer a 6.1-inch OLED screen with three cameras, a hole cutout instead of a notch, a headphone jack, and a fingerprint scanner. All this is powered by a Snapdragon 855. Like all the other flagships expected to be unveiled, the S10 is set to pack 128GB of memory as standard with the option to expand to 1TB with a microSD cars.
Samsung is also planning some larger versions for big screen fans. The Samsung Galaxy S10 Plus may offer a 6.4-inch screen, two front-facing cameras, four rear cameras, and a giant 4,000 mAh battery. A more extreme device, the Samsung Galaxy S10 X, could offer the first 5G connectivity alongside a 6.7-inch display, 5,000 mAh battery and 10GB of RAM alongside the six-camera setup from the Plus model. Those that prefer smaller devices may prefer the S10e, expected to offer a 5.8-inch screen. Perhaps Samsung’s most exciting launch could be the Galaxy F, a foldable phone speculated for launch after Samsung released a teaser video. The company previously teased its foldable device in November of last year, with the promise of a phone that folds out into a tablet-sized device.
The firm is also expected to unveil new wearables. After inadvertently leaking its own devices in an Android app, fans are now expecting the launch of a Galaxy Watch Active with a 40mm case, and a Galaxy Fit and Galaxy Fit e offering Fitbit-like designs. These are expected to improve on last year’s lineup, which launched in August 2018 with a focus on rugged design, by offering an even slimmer bezel that draws attention to the screen. Samsung is also expected to unveil its Galaxy Buds, priced around $169, that could offer competition against AirPods.
