The phones were supposedly going to feature class-leading screen-to-body ratios that climbed well into the 90% range, bringing them as close as possible to the "all-screen" design that smartphone vendors have been chasing for more than a year now.
So there might not be a Samsung Galaxy S10, but right now we wouldn't count on that. With the release of the S9 just around the corner, Samsung is planning a major re-brand for the following model. Speaking of which, the latter seems to have inspired Samsung to up the price of its new flagship device, with a report out of the United Kingdom suggesting it will cost £100 more than the S8 did at its launch, and that an equivalent price hike can also be expected in the US. It's too early to comment on how it will or won't work, but we'll keep you updated as soon as we get any news about it. That's £100 more than the S8's United Kingdom launch price.
In addition to being faster than the previous generation, the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9 Plus are expected to introduce improved cameras, with the Galaxy S9 getting a single 12-megapixel shooter and the Galaxy S9 Plus getting dual 12-megapixel shooters.
Samsung is scheduled to take the covers off the Galaxy S9 at a dedicated event in Barcelona on February 25 - but that hasn't stopped information from seeping out about the handset's predecessor, the Galaxy S10, which is tipped to hit the shelves sometime in 2019. We even went as far as to call the new S9 and S9+ boring. The company's C-series in Galaxy lineup devices target premium mid-range markets, prices nearly near to the "so-called" flagship killer smartphones.
