They quote Suzanne de Silva, Samsung's director of Product Strategy and Marketing, that the phone is set to be released in the first half of 2019.

While the Galaxy S10 and the Galaxy S10 Plus are a shoo-in, it's less clear if we'll get to see the fabled folding device Samsung's been working on for the better half of a decade.

Samsung confirmed this morning that it will announce the Galaxy S10 on February 20. This year, it did the same thing at CES 2019.

As for what improvements the Galaxy S10 might offer, Samsung is expected to embrace the new trend of hole-punch displays. Samsung is also expected to release another version of the Galaxy S10 Lite powered by the company's in-house Exynos 9820 SoC which was announced back in November past year.

The PC Version of The Division 2 Will be Bypassing Steam
Epic introduced the Epic Games Store in early December , positioning it as a direct competitor to Valve's Steam. As reported by Polygon , the semi-exclusive deal will begin in March with the launch of The Division 2 .

However, there reportedly has been a discussion about changing the place and timing of the Unpacked event to mark the 10th anniversary of the Galaxy phone this year.

Bixby isn't just being pushed into vehicles, CES 2019 has revealed that in 2019 Samsung will expand Bixby into many areas including health products, AI speakers, mobile devices, smart TVs, and their new Family Hub. This will bring down the cost as much as possible for the base model. "Because it is the first foldable phone by Samsung, we are thinking more about offering some powerful contents for better user experiences that can be earned only from the foldable phone", an official said. The Herald notes that the phone's release schedule hasn't been confirmed.

A different report from The Wall Street Journal also offers the same date and location for the Galaxy S10 press conference. The centerpiece of Samsungs AI vision is Bixby, which in a short amount of time has leapfrogged from a simple voice assistant to a truly intelligent interface capable of more conversational interaction and simplified control of hundreds of devices. Now, the interesting thing is, this prototype has a notch in the top-right corner, which is something the final unit nearly certainly will not have, as it will be a part of the Galaxy S10 lineup, more on that later.
