Here's when Samsung's foldable phone & 5G Galaxy S10 are expected to launch
The first quarter of 2019 is going to be a busy one for Samsung. The company is gearing up to launch several intriguing high-end gadgets, including its first foldable smartphone and a Galaxy S10 lineup that will include a model with 5G capabilities.
So far, there's no official information about the release dates for these devices. However, if this new report from Korea is to be believed, they will happen rather soon. According to sources of Yonhap and The Korea Herald, Samsung will launch the foldable Galaxy F and Galaxy S10 series in March of 2019, shortly after their official announcements at next year's MWC Barcelona.
The tech giant has a history of releasing its Galaxy S smartphones in the first quarter of a given year, and Sammie has officially stated that we should expect the Galaxy F before July of 2019. Thus, although speculative, the estimations in this report do seem believable.
Samsung is going produce at least 1 million units of its foldable phone during 2019. Sources indicate that the device retail for about $1,800, which will likely limit sales. For comparison, the 512GB Note 9, which is the company's most expensive model to date, sells for $1,250. Despite the hefty price tag, rumor has it that the first Galaxy F won't feature 5G connectivity.
A lot of new changes are also supposedly coming to the more "traditional" Galaxy S10 series. The new lineup is said to feature a design with virtually no bezels, a fingerprint scanner and front-facing cameras under the display, and three cameras on the back.
