T3 looked at the price differences of the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9 Plus in the U.S. and United Kingdom and applied the math to the rumored S10 prices. No surprises there. If Gizmodo's information checks out, the standard Galaxy S10 will cost roughly $US1000 ($AU1385) - and that's for the lowest capacity model.

The Samsung Galaxy S10 family of phones will likely be revealed at a February 24th, 2019 event.

Earlier today we reported on a massive Galaxy S10 price and spec leak that was given to Gizmodo by a verified 'major tech retailer'.

In the bull market of 2017, many projects raised hundreds of millions of dollars, and one - Sirin Labs - claims to have raised almost $158 million in an initial coin offering (ICO) to create mobile phones with native cryptocurrency support to compete against the behemoths of the mobile phone market.

As for the Plus model, it will have some truly insane storage options for customers to mull over; it will start at £899 for a 128GB model. The 512GB model will cost £1,099. Finally, a 1TB model will be priced at £1,399.

Samsung is apparently working to make the Galaxy S10 everything to everybody, as reports indicate that Samsung is planning a huge version of the Galaxy S10 featuring six cameras, 5G support, and a monster 6.7-inch display. If so, we've got some good news for you, because we may now know the date on which Samsung will officially announce its next flagship smartphone. There will also be an ultrasonic fingerprint scanner, which is much more secure than the regular 2D optical scanner.

So, as we can see, there'll be a total of three phones, the Samsung Galaxy S10 Lite, Galaxy S10 and Galaxy S10 Plus, with memory configurations going from 128GB to 1TB - yes, one terabyte!

Olixar, a maker of "premium smartphone and tablet accessories from cases to pocket sized selfie poles" (according to the company's own description), has already made available a range of Galaxy S10 cases for pre-order. Both the latter phones will feature three rear-facing cameras.

Apparently, that report was nothing more than "rumor and speculation", at least according to Cointelegraph, who cited a "private correspondence" from Samsung themselves.
