Although the availability dates for the Samsung Galaxy S10e, Samsung Galaxy S10, or Samsung Galaxy S10+ arenโ€™t included in this page, Samsung Philippinesโ€™ pre-order page reveals the availability date of the rumored Limited Edition Samsung Galaxy S10+โ€”March 15, 2019. Itโ€™s possible the Limited Edition model will launch earlier or later in other markets, but Samsung tends to launch their smartphones globally so we donโ€™t expect the date to differ too much between regions. This model is said to have a ceramic back, 1TB of internal storage, and 12GB of RAM. Samsung recently announced theyโ€™re making 1TB UFS chips for mobile devices, so we expect to see this new chip in the Limited Edition model. 12GB of RAM sounds absurd for a mobile device, but it could come in handy if you plan on running Linux on DeX. 


 If you look closely at the renders, you can actually see that theyโ€™re outlines of the devices. These match the leaked renders of each device perfectly. Option D is the Galaxy S10e as you can see the indent for the side-mounted fingerprint scanner. Option C is the Galaxy S10 with the power button thatโ€™s mounted pretty high up on the side. Options B and A are both Galaxy S10+ models, though the Limited Edition has more bells and whistles. All 4 of these devices will pack either the Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 or Exynos 9820, reverse wireless charging support, and Android Pie-based One UI. While the availability dates for the non-Limited Edition models arenโ€™t confirmed, you can expect these devices to launch in early March. Current rumors point to availability on Friday, March 8th, but all 4 devices could very well launch on March 15th, 2019. As for pricing, the Samsung Philippines site doesnโ€™t show any retail prices but the rumored prices for the devices are $750 USD for the Galaxy S10e, $900 for the Galaxy S10, $1,000 for the Galaxy S10+, and $1,500 for the Limited Edition Galaxy S10+. The 5G model is rumored to come later. All of this information will be officially announced at Samsung Unpacked on February 20th, 2019.
