(Pocket-lint) - Samsung announced the ten-year anniversary range of the Galaxy S smartphone at its Unpacked event on 20 February in San Francisco. The Galaxy S10e, the Galaxy S10 and the Galaxy S10+ were all confirmed, but there was a fourth device mentioned too - the Galaxy S10 5G.
Rumours had previously suggested that fourth device would be called the Samsung Galaxy X but we have received confirmation that the Galaxy X is the Galaxy S10 5G, and that's what it will be called going forward.
Daniel Benjamin, Head of Product Planning and Pricing at Samsung, confirmed the redundancy of the Galaxy X name in an interview with Pocket-lint at the Galaxy S10 briefing. We were also told at the briefing that the Galaxy S10 5G would be available to consumers "early summer" this year.
The Samsung Galaxy S10 5G features a 6.7-inch Quad HD+ Dynamic AMOLED display with a 19:9 aspect ratio and an ultrasonic fingerprint sensor beneath the screen. Like the other S10 devices, it's all screen on the front with a punch hole camera in the top right. The S10 5G device features a 3D depth sensor on the front and rear though, meaning it has a quad camera on its rear compared to the triple camera on the S10 and S10+.
Under its hood, the Galaxy S10 5G will feature an octa-core 8nm processor coupled with 8GB of RAM and 256GB of storage, expandable up to 512GB via microSD. There is also a huge 4500mAh battery on board which not only supports wireless charging but reverse charging too. The Galaxy S10 5G of course offers 5G capabilities too.
Currently, there is no word on pricing or an exact date for availability. You can see what it will look like in our Galaxy S10 5G preview though.
