Samsung Galaxy S10 preview: Everything we know so far

UPDATED: See clear new renders of all three GS10 models!

After last year's bold reinvention of the Samsung Galaxy S8, this year's Galaxy S9 didn't have quite the same impact. It's still one of the best phones you can buy today, but it's tougher to get excited about a super-expensive smartphone that feels... samey.

But surely the Galaxy S10 will go big again. Not only does it mark the "tick" part of the Apple-esque tick-tock release cycle that Samsung's followed the last few years, but it's also the big #10 for the brand. And we saw what Apple did with the iPhone X to mark its own legacy.

It's early still, but the rumours are already flying about what to expect from the Samsung Galaxy S10. If you're an eager Samsung fan, here's what you need to know so far.

How much power will the Samsung Galaxy S10 pack?

Samsung's in-house Exynos chips, used in India and elsewhere, have consistently led the Android pack in recent years, with the top-end Qualcomm Snapdragon chips (used in the U.S.) have been pretty close.

We'll see a new Exynos chip for 2019, of course, packing even more power than before. It's called the Exynos 8920, and it can handle AI processing needs up to seven times faster than the Exynos 8910.

Qualcomm's new chip, meanwhile, is called the Snapdragon 855. Like the Exynos 8920, it's built for 5G connectivity, and it claims to provide 3x the AI speed than the Snapdragon 845. These are just specs on paper for now; we'll have to see how they compare in real-world usage, but we're sure both will be super speedy.
