The 5G Galaxy S10 is reportedly named Galaxy S10 X, and will cost twice the S10 Lite price


Its official, Samsung mobile will be unwrapping the Galaxy S10 range of smartphones on February 20, at about 11 a.m. at its 2019 Unpacked event in San Francisco’s Bill Graham Civic Auditorium. The launch date was well predicted beforehand, and it appears all other leaks are shaping out to be in the right direction.

While Samsung is expected to unveil the  three models of the Galaxy S10 ‘(The Galaxy S10, a smaller Galaxy S10 E, and a super-sized Galaxy S10 Plus), a fourth 5G ready model is also rumored to be in the works, and while that model hasn’t received a fair share of leaks, today’s report beams more light on the device.

As per the latest report, the 4th model of the S10 range is tipped to arrive as the Galaxy S10 X and will arrive as Samsung’s first with 5G network support. The device will first go on sale in Korea later in March before heading to other 5G ready markets.

Now, to what is most important, ETNews reports that the Samsung Galaxy S10 X 5G-ready variant aside from packing some quirky hardware will come at a huge cost that almost doubles that of the Galaxy S10 Lite. The Korean publication says you will be able to buy the Galaxy S10 x within the price range of 1.6 million won ($1,424) to 1.8 million won ($1,602), which is about twice the reported asking price of the Galaxy S10 E which is tipped to sell between 800,000 won ($712) and 900,000 won ($801).

Aside from its 5G’ capability, the device is tipped to come fitted with a total of six cameras — four rear and two in front, while it will flaunt a large 6.7-inch Super AMOLED display coupled with a befitting 5,000mAh battery, 10GB of RAM and 1TB of storage.
