Samsung has announced that it will host its next Unpacked event in San Francisco on Feb. 20. And with that, the countdown to the Galaxy S10 begins in earnest.
As the world's largest phone manufacturer, Samsung has a great deal riding on the 10th edition of its flagship Galaxy S series. And based on the rumors, it may well live up to the hype. A chorus of analysts, pundits and leakers are painting a picture of a Galaxy S10 jam-packed with potentially extraordinary features, including an ultrasonic fingerprint sensor, the company's own take on Face ID and an Infinity-O display. If the stories are accurate, Samsung could have a hit -- and secure its place at the top of the smartphone heap.

And China's Huawei, which ousted Apple to take the No. 2 slot, is putting increasing pressure on Samsung. Despite its own problems -- which include growing hostility from governments in the US and around the world -- Huawei continues to drive sales on the strength of innovative products such as the Mate 20 Pro.
Adding to the drama is a pair of emerging technologies that promise to alter the smartphone landscape in the near term. Samsung is battling LG, Huawei and others to be the first to market with a foldable phone. And every phone-maker is racing to produce phones that can support the next generation of cellular technology, called 5G. We expect to see examples of both this year.
