There could be as many as five Galaxy S10 models: lite, vanilla, plus and two 5G ones
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:
|Samsung Galaxy||S10 Lite||S10||S10+||S10 5G||S10 Bolt|
|Screen||5.8" (flat)||6.1" (curved)||6.44" (curved)||6.7" (curved)||6.7" (curved)|
|Chipset||Snapdragon 855 / Exynos 9820|
|Fingerprint reader||Side-mounted||UD, ultrasonic|
The Samsung Galaxy S10, S10+ and S10 Lite are expected to go on pre-order just days after they are unveiled. The first units are should hit stores and ship out to consumers on March 8 (just over two weeks after the Samsung Unpacked event).

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.
