Invitation samsung galaxy unpacked 2019

Samsung has  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. 

It was reported on The Wall Street 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.
