Samsung Galaxy Unpacked press conference: What will be launched?
Samsung has left little to the imagination with the invite to the event, with a huge 10 across the middle. It's the 10th anniversary year of the Galaxy so there's a double celebration with the expected launch of the Samsung Galaxy S10. But there might be a number of different models.
Samsung Galaxy S10 & S10+
The Samsung Galaxy S10 is likely to be the focus of the event and it is likely to appear in two different sizes as in previous years. The specification of the devices will likely be pretty similar - with Qualcomm Snapdragon or Exynos hardware depending on the region - AMOLED displays in 5.8 or 6.1-inch sizes and three cameras on the rear.
Samsung Galaxy S10 X
There's also a rumour that there's going to a supercharged version of the S10, called the Samsung Galaxy S10 X. It's suggested that this handset - codenamed Beyond X - will be the 5G version of this phone, set for launch in the US and Korea initially, and it will be a premium version, with four cameras, a larger 6.7-inch display and a huge bump to internal specs, with 10GB RAM and 1TB of storage. The price is expected to match.
Samsung Galaxy E
There are rumours that Samsung will be launching a budget version of the S10, called the Samsung Galaxy E - or "lite" in some rumours. This might not be coming to all regions and we're not certain whether Samsung will add it to the Unpacked roster.
Samsung Galaxy Pulse
There's also he suggestion that Samsung will be updating the Gear Sport with a model called the Galaxy Pulse. This will be a new Tizen-based wearable, but with a full roster of phones - and Mobile World Congress soon after unpacked - we might not see this device launch at the 20 February event.
Samsung Galaxy F
We're also expecting to see Samsung's folding phone announced at some point. This was showcased at the 2018 Samsung Developer Conference, but again, it's difficult to say whether Samsung will launch it at Unpacked or save it for MWC.
