Samsung will unveil the Galaxy S10 next month (likely on February 20) and it will be a family of devices that goes beyond the usual vanilla and plus models. There’s going to be a lite version as well, plus later in the year Samsung will introduce its first 5G flagships.

The Samsung Galaxy S10 Lite will be its first S-series phone in a while to feature a flat screen. Also, it will not be an Infinity-O screen, but a more traditional design instead, according to the info compiled by TechTastic.

There will be two mostly identical 5G models. The Beyond X (Galaxy 10 5G) will launch globally, the Beyond Bolt (Galaxy S10 Bolt) will be a Verizon-exclusive (and will feature a larger battery, though exact numbers are unknown at this point).

Here’s a quick overview of the five different models:

Such a waste. Xiaomi Huawei and Lenovo Z5 pro GT will outbeat any Samsung all the way. Nokia 9 as well. Noone wants to pay 2000 for a 5G phone.
