Samsung Announces Galaxy S10 Event on February 20 in San Francisco, May Include Foldable Smartphone

Samsung today announced it will be hosting an event on Wednesday, February 20 at 11:00 a.m. Pacific Time at the Bill Graham Civic Auditorium in San Francisco, with the media invitation teasing new Galaxy S10 smartphones.

Samsung's event invite

The Wall Street Journal today reported that Samsung plans to announce three new Galaxy S10 models along with an all-new foldable smartphone dubbed the "Galaxy Fold" at the event, with a simultaneous keynote in London. A fourth model with 5G network support will allegedly be released later in the spring.

Rumors point towards Samsung unveiling a lower-end Galaxy S10 Lite with a 5.8-inch display, Galaxy S10 with a 6.1-inch display, and Galaxy S10+ with a 6.4-inch display. The devices are expected to be released in March as usual.

Samsung typically unveils its Galaxy S smartphones at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, which takes place February 25-28 this year. Samsung reportedly decided to move up its announcement since Chinese smartphone maker Huawei plans to introduce a competing foldable smartphone at the trade show.

Leaks suggest Galaxy S10 models will feature a so-called "hole-punch" display with a small cutout for the front camera instead of a notch. More cameras are also expected across the lineup, with up to a four-lens rear camera and dual-lens front camera expected on at least one Galaxy S10+ variant.

Galaxy smartphones are one of the biggest rivals to the iPhone, which is also expected to gain a triple-lens rear camera in 2019. Apple is unlikely to switch to a hole-punch display, however, due to the various sensors required for Face ID.

So when the Galaxy Fold is introduced at a price of $1,500 or so, will Samsung fans be upset that they "used to be able to afford the top of the line Galaxy and now Samsung has priced me out"?
The difference is samsung offfers a lot more OTHER choices than apple does. from cheap to expensive, from small to big.

No notch, no buy
Please tell us you’re joking. Anyone buying a phone BECAUSE it has that stupid notch needs to be comitted to the apple coolaid insane asylum.

Once again, if iPhone users want a similar aesthetic, I've come up with a solution:

I changed it to teasing. Is that better? Even if it's incredibly obvious, I strive to be factual with everything I write.
