Samsung Foldable smartphone shown off behind closed doors at CES

Samsung Foldable smartphone shown off behind closed doors at CES

We're expecting to see three 4G versions of the Galaxy S10 at the event-a lite, medium, and pro version-but maybe not the 5G phone Verizon demonstrated at Qualcomm's Snapdragon Technology Summit last month. The capacity is expected to deliver the same endurance as the Galaxy S9, but because the handset will feature more efficient components such as an SLP boards and the Exynos 9820, we can expect slightly better battery timing.

The past few years have seen Samsung announce the new Galaxy S handset at MWC, so getting it out five days early is a odd change in pace.

Digital Trends got a hold of Samsung's director of Product Strategy and Marketing, Suzanne de Silva, at CES, and she told them the foldable phone is coming in the first half of 2019.

The new Samsung Galaxy Sport smartwatch will be launched at the same, 20 February event, as the new Galaxy S10 smartphones. The Mobile World Congress 2019 begins February 28th in Barcelona so you can do the math.

Samsung didn't discuss 5G much at CES 2019, but the company did quietly show off a 5G prototype smartphone for folks to see at its booth, according to reports.

Earlier than Samsung's announcement in November, China's display start-up Royole unexpectedly unveiled a 7.8-inch foldable Android smartphone called "FlexPai" with a starting price of $1,318. In an industry first, a new iTunes Movies and TV Shows app will debut only on Samsung Smart TVs in more than 100 countries. Fortunately, it seems that Samsung itself has confirmed the design of at least the Galaxy S10 and its punch-hole screen, though, of course, it has tried to remove evidence of such.
