Bloomberg's sources say the clamshell foldable phone will be revealed either later this year or early in 2020. It is also said to come with a display on the outside, but it may not necessarily stay there when the device goes official as its existence depends on how consumers will react to the Galaxy Fold.

For customers pre-booking the Galaxy S10 models, Samsung is offering the Galaxy Watch smartwatch at Rs. 9,999 or the Galaxy Buds headphones for Rs. 2,999. More specifically, it's claimed the Korean brand is trying to get rid of a crease that appears on the screen after it's been folded roughly 10,000 times. Samsung Electronics president and CEO of IT & Mobile Communications Division, DJ Koh will launch the lineup - comprising Samsung Galaxy S10, S10 Plus and S10e - at an event in New Delhi.

Samsung can now produce approximately 2.4 million foldable display a year. So much so that the smartphone maker apparently has two more foldable phones being prepped for after April's release of the super-pricey Galaxy Fold. The Galaxy S10 also handily beats both the iPhone XS Max and the Galaxy S9, according to DisplayMate's criteria. The South Korean company shipped 291.3 million phones previous year while Huawei sold 205.8 million, according to Strategy Analytics.
