While Samsung is attempting to subtly tease its next-generation Galaxy S smartphone ahead of its launch next month, XDA Developers contributor Max Weinbach has unleashed a slew of never-before-seen details about the Galaxy S10. The good money is on Samsung releasing a whopping four smartphones at its Unpacked event on February 20, and now we might know a little more about the mysterious 5G model. Looking at Samsung's previous track record, it looks like the Galaxy S10 series will end up hitting the retail stores in early March.

Pricing for the lowest S10 model will reportedly sit somewhere between 800,000 won (~$712) and 900,000 won (~$801), while the Galaxy S10 X could reach as high as 1.8 million won, which converts to around $1,603. Oof. A new report says the feature will be coming to its Galaxy A-series too. The device was a prototype to showcase Samsung's Infinity Flex display technology and it worked rather slickly thanks to Samsung's new One UI which helps apps and interfaces respond to the fold/unfold actions. Once again, the S10 Lite is not expected to receive an in-display ultrasonic fingerprint sensor, opting instead for a side-mounted, conventional one.

Meanwhile, the Samsung Galaxy S10 Plus will purportedly boast an additional 13MP f/2.4 telephoto lens with OIS and a 45-degree field of view.

Want to know how much a Galaxy S10 will cost you? Interestingly, this is not what we've heard from other previously reliable tipsters, with UniverseIce claiming only the Galaxy S10 Lite will have a dual-camera set-up, leaving everything else with three lenses.
