The firm is mulling over leaving the headphone jack out of the S10 and S10 Plus, which would be in line with rivals like Apple. Samsung has reportedly embedded a fingerprint sensor under the display of Galaxy S10 and has overcome the challenge of mass-producing such a device.
The company is in talks with Verizon to launch the flagship in the USA with a 5G capable chipset, according to the report.
There's no reasoning in the report for why Samsung is planning to drop the technology, but it's likely to free up more space for either a larger battery or some new features on the handset. The model could replace Samsung's existing Galaxy A lineup altogether as it hopes to win consumers with the pull of Galaxy S branding.
The rumor mill has gone a bit quiet as of late regarding Samsung and the company's next flagship smartphone, but we may be getting back into the groove of things.
We expect those to be the equivalent of the Samsung Galaxy S10 and Galaxy S10 Plus, as well as a cheaper version. "Please stay tuned", Samsung said in a statement.
Lastly, the report suggests that the much anticipated foldable-screen device is codenamed as "Winner", which has been in under development for years and will most likely show up at the event, said the report.

Samsung is debating between two prototypes with one that is horizontally long and the other which is vertically longer when unfolded. The company's designers are reportedly leaning toward the taller portrait model so it's easier to hold in one hand.
The device would take after the once-popular Motorola Razr, featuring a screen that opens with a snap.
This new report states that Samsung won't be including a in-display fingerprint reader due to technological constraints and that the handset's display will be "coated with a film" rather than glass.
It would also have a four-inch screen on the outside so that users can check their messages and notifications without having to flip it open. The former idea makes more sense, though a lot depends on how far and strong the concept of bendable phone will endure. The company is struggling to figure out technical problems that may arise during mass production including possibility of this foldable display cracking into dried paper.
Samsung's 2013 concept video shows a phone that's very similar to the one described in Bloomberg's report.
