Samsung to unveil Galaxy S10 successor in February

MANILA -- Samsung said it would unveil the 11th iteration of its Galaxy S line of premium smartphones on Feb. 11, earlier than the previous year, as it fights off competition in a saturated market

It is not immediately clear whether the successor to 2019's Galaxy S10 will be called the S11. The world's largest smartphone maker could reboot the name to Galaxy S20 to mark the start of a new decade, according to some tech blogs.

The next flagship is expected to improve upon the S10+ and Note 10+ which had triple lenses on the rear and large, bright screens that wrap around the sides. Samsung might also unveil the successor to the Galaxy Fold, one that unfolds like a clam shell rather than a book.

Last year's S10 line came in 3 variants, instead of 3, including the S10e with a smaller screen.

The South Korean tech giant did not reveal much about the new phones in announcements posted on its official Twitter and Facebook pages.

Samsung will unwrap the new phone ahead of Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, where its rivals are expected to show off their smartphone offerings for the first half.
