Samsung might launch two more versions of the Galaxy S10 than the usual update to its Galaxy S series.
Usually, Samsung announces a standard new S phone, and a slightly bigger S Plus version. This has been the case with the S9 and S9 Plus, S8 and S8 Plus, and so on. But it could launch as many as four versions of the S10.
It’s thought the usual S10 and S10 Plus versions will arrive alongside a more wallet-friendly model designed to compete with the iPhone XR. A fourth model could be compatible with 5G networks for superfast internet access.
Samsung has registered three models of S10 with China’s Ministry of Industry and Information Technology (MIIT), the country’s telecoms regulator. These have the model numbers SM-G9700, SM-G9730 and SM-G9750.
The S9 and S9 Plus bore the model numbers SG-9600 and SG-9650, respectively. So it’s safe to assume these refer to their successors.
Samsung previously revealed that the S10 will have a “very significant” revamp to the phone’s design. This being the 10th anniversary of the Galaxy S series, we’re expecting big things when the phone is announced early next year.
