UPDATE: YouTube link embedded below the article.
One of Samsung’s most important press conferences of the year is upon us, it will commence at 11AM PST / 2PM EST / 8PM CET, and the company will live stream the event. During this press conference, the company will announce its Galaxy S10 series of devices, while the company’s foldable smartphone may also make an appearance, even though Samsung probably will not fully announce it.
This press conference would extremely important for the company either way, but this is actually the tenth anniversary of the Galaxy S lineup, so it’s a really big deal for Samsung. If you’re interested in tuning in, Samsung is providing us with a number of ways to do that. Samsung is giving you an option to tune in via its official website, Facebook, or Twitter. Visit Samsung Newsroom, Samsung.com or Samsung Mobile Press when the event commences. Alternatively, you can navigate to Samsung Newsroom or Samsung Global’s Facebook page, and if you prefer Twitter, head over to the Galaxy Unpacked’s Twitter page. All the links provided by Samsung are included in this paragraph.
There is a chance that the event will be live streamed via one of the company’s official YouTube channels, but Samsung did not mention anything regarding that in its press release. In any case, if a live stream pops up on YouTube in the meantime, we’ll embed it down below, if not, you’ll be able to follow what’s going on with ease via one of the sources we’ve mentioned in the previous paragraph.
What Will Samsung Announce?
Samsung will announce its Galaxy S10 series of devices during this event, the Galaxy S10e, S10, and S10+. On top of that, we will probably see some wearables at the event as well, including the Galaxy Watch Active and Galaxy Buds, while the company’s wireless charger for the Galaxy S10 series of devices will also be announced, at least according to rumors. On top of all that, the company will probably at least tease its foldable smartphone, as it probably will not be fully announced today, as Samsung probably don’t want the Galaxy S10 series to conflict with its foldable smartphone launch and vice versa.
The Galaxy S10e, S10, and S10+ have been leaking for weeks now, so many of you probably already have a good idea as to what to expect. All three devices will be made out of metal and glass, with the exception of the Ceramic Galaxy S10+, which will sport a ceramic backplate. The Galaxy S10 and S10+ will sport curved QHD+ displays, and in-display fingerprint scanners, while the Galaxy S10e will include a flat fullHD+ display, and a side-facing fingerprint scanner. The Galaxy S10e will be the smallest, and most affordable Galaxy S10-branded phone, and yet it will ship with the same flagship SoC (Exynos 9820 / Snapdragon 855) as all the other Galaxy S10 smartphones.
All three devices will arrive with Android 9 Pie out of the box, and Samsung’s brand new, one-hand friendly “One UI” layout will be included on top of Android. If you’d like to know more about the Galaxy S10 series before the event starts today, feel free to check out our Galaxy S10 preview.
