The wait is over —  almost. Samsung has released invitations to its Galaxy Unpacked February 20 (21st in the Philippines) event, which will officially launch its anniversary Galaxy S10 lineup.

A plethora of rumors and leaks suggest the company is going to announce three premium smartphones. There’s the Samsung Galaxy S10 and Galaxy S10+ with curved designs and under-display fingerprint readers and the flat-screened Samsung Galaxy S10 E with a physical fingerprint sensor. All three phones are expected to arrive with a selfie camera built into the screen, though the lineup-topping Galaxy S10+ will reportedly sport two front-facing cameras instead of one, as seen in the main image above.

Reports also claim the Galaxy S10 will get a 6.1-inch Super AMOLED, while the Plus model will increase the screen size to 6.4 inches. The Galaxy S10 E might be 5.8 inches, albeit with equally small bezels surrounding the display. On the inside, Samsung’s 8nm, 8K-capable Exynos 9820 processor is set to power the Galaxy S10 lineup.

The Samsung Galaxy Unpacked event will be held on February 20. That’s at 3 a.m. on February 21 in the Philippines

The next Galaxy Unpacked event is scheduled to take place in San Francisco, but you can follow the livestream at home from Samsung’s website and social channels. It also sees the Korean electronics manufacturer breaking with tradition by launching the Samsung Galaxy S10, Galaxy S10+, and Galaxy S10 E ahead of the annual Mobile World Congress conference in Barcelona, Spain.

It’s been said this year’s Unpacked affair matters more than the company’s previous showings. Samsung remains the world’s No. 1 smartphone vendor. However, that might change if Huawei — now the world’s second-largest vendor, having dropped Apple to third place — continues to do extraordinarily well in China and Europe, its recent dominance fueled by the Huawei P20 and Mate 20 phones.

Here’s hoping that Samsung is doing a lot to counter the impression that it’s not the industry’s leading innovator anymore.
