While rumors of Samsung's new Galaxy S-series smartphones launching in January are circulating the industry on an annual basis and are nearly always wrong, the latest report on the matter provides more reasoning about the alleged development than such claims usually do.
Previous reports that the Galaxy S10 would include a notch like the iPhone X have, thankfully, seemingly been put to rest by this new report. The RED Hydrongen One follows as the company has confirmed the reasons for its delay.
Assuming Samsung sticks with its traditional release cadence, the Galaxy S10 will likely arrive in the first quarter of 2019.
All this and more after the break. We should see more Galaxy Note 9 rumors at this time of year, but that's not the case.
There's new information about Samsung's foldable phone project.

This resulted in Kurdish forces redirecting their resources from combating ISIS to bolstering fellow Kurds in Afrin. Deir Ezzor Military Council head Ahmed Abu Khawla told AFP there was a "shared operations room with Iraqi forces".
However, industry sources said Samsung may be advancing the debut of the Galaxy S10. Oath plans to announce its latest agreement with Samsung in NY on Tuesday, as the firm gears up to outline its strategy for the year to media buyers.
Going by this timeline, Samsung will be taking advantage of CES 2019 (holding in January) to announce the next flagship in the Galaxy S series.
According to The Bell, the Galaxy S10 will measure in at 5.8 inches, while big sibling the Galaxy S10 Plus will get a 6.3-inch display, so the duo will be roughly the same size as the S9 and S9 Plus. That might not be the case next year if the foldable smartphone is to be launched in Barcelona. The manufacturer wants to leave some room for consumers to digest the Samsung Galaxy S10 and have room left over for dessert.
The report notes that a foldable Galaxy phone was shown privately to partners at CES this year. In terms of design, it will be an in-folding smartphone and sport three 3.5-inch OLED displays; Two of these will be inside, while one will be on the outside. The third OLED screen is on the outside of the phone, allowing the user to interact with the handset when it's folded closed.
Samsung might just work with multiple firms in order to handle the mass production of sensors. Samsung has high hopes from the foldable phone and thinks it's going to be a victor, hence the codename change.
