Retailer FTP Shop has the ceramic Galaxy S10 listed for VND 30,990,000, which translates to $1,333.

This practically confirms that Samsung will be showcasing two flagship phones at the event: the Samsung Galaxy S10 (which is rumoured to come in up to four iterations) and its folding sibling (tentatively dubbed the "Samsung Galaxy X".) In other words, this isn't an event that Samsung and Android fans are going to want to miss.

Samsung'sFebruary 20 Unpacked event in San Francisco is where the "future unfolds", said a Samsung teaser video posted on Monday. Both S10 and S10 Plus will have in-display fingerprint sensor.

It is pretty evident from the leaked renders of the Galaxy M30 that the device looks a lot like the Galaxy M20 for the most part. But we do know that Samsung has partnered with Google to work on the software to make sure apps work seamlessly whether the device is folded in a "smartphone-like" mode or opened like a tablet. The phone features the same water drop notch at the top and has a tall display. The back of the regular Galaxy S phones will be made up of glass. It also reveals the smartphone will flaunt USB Type-C port and a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor.

The same event will definitely see the premiere of the new Samsung Galaxy S10. Flipkart has already started teasing the Galaxy S10 launch with a dedicated notify-me page. That phone will also include a smaller display than any other Galaxy S10 unit, as it will ship with a 5.8-inch Super AMOLED panel, though we're still not sure if it will include a fullHD+ or QHD+ display. The price of Galaxy S10e could start at around Rs 50,000, while the bigger S10 Plus could be priced at around Rs 75,000.
