Galaxy S10 will be unveiled by Samsung on February 20 at an Unpacked event in San Francisco.

The firm sent out invitations to media during the week and issued a poster for the showcase that showed the number 10, all but confirming the name of its new handset.

Galaxy S10 has been rumoured to arrive in at least three models, a move that would mark a huge divergence from recent Samsung tradition.

While the firm has typically unveiled standard and Plus models of its S-line of handsets in recent years, it seems the Galaxy S10 may also be available in a cheaper variety.

Such a device is expected to forgo some premium features in exchange for its more appealing price point.

With that said, all three versions of the device are expected to come with all-screen designs and a hole-punch style notch for each’s respective front-facing cameras.

And the trio are also expected to come pre-installed with Android 9 Pie running on top of Samsung’s new One UI software skin.

Gizmodo recently revealed the supposed pricing models for each Galaxy S10 model and suggested the cheapest version of the hardware, referred to as the Galaxy S10 Lite and S10 E, could start at £669.

The full list read:

• Galaxy S10 Lite, 128GB – £669

• Galaxy S10, 128GB – £799

• Galaxy S10, 512GB – £999

• Galaxy S10+, 128GB – £899

• Galaxy S10+, 512GB – £1,099

• Galaxy S10+, 1TB – £1,399

More recently renowned leaker Ice Universe has seemingly outed the battery capacities for each device.

The Twitter user recently posted an image of three cases that are presumed to be for the Galaxy S10 Lite, Galaxy S10 and Galaxy S10 Plus respectively.

Numbers were present at the bottom of each that seemingly discussed the mAh capacity of each pack.

They were:

• Galaxy S10 Lite – 3,100mAh

• Galaxy S10 – 3,500mAh

• Galaxy S10 Plus – 4,000mAh

However, it has also been rumoured a fourth version of the Galaxy S10 is in the works that possesses a 6.7-inch display, six cameras and can deliver 5G network speeds, according to the Wall Street Journal.

The outlet also declared the device in question will have the ability to wirelessly charge other devices that sit on its rear, similar to the functionality currently offered by the Huawei Mate 20 Pro.

And a new report from Galaxy Club has declared the 5G-capable S10 could come with a humungous 5,000mAh battery.

The size of such a pack is extremely rare on smartphones with the 7.2-inch Huawei Mate 20 X being one of the few other devices to tout the specification.

If the report from the outlet is accurate, it means the most premium Galaxy S10 model could offer great battery life that could challenge all of its 2019 rivals.

However, the publication insisted the 5G S10 will only launch in the US and South Korea.

This means the UK may miss out on the model capable of delivering superior network speeds.

However, such a claim has not been confirmed by Samsung itself.

Instead the South Korean OEM will surely discuss everything about its new flagship models on February 20.

Express.co.uk will be covering the exhibition live.
