CES 2019: Watch the Samsung press conference live Monday at 2 p.m. PT

A more believable rumor tells of the Galaxy S10, Samsung's 10th anniversary Galaxy phone, making an early debut Feb. 20, with the Galaxy X (or Galaxy F) foldable phone arriving later, perhaps in March.

2019 may not officially start until Tuesday, Jan. 7, but the Sunday and Monday before doors open play host to some of the biggest announcements from the world’s largest consumer electronics show.

In fact, Monday, Jan. 6, is packed to the gills with at least a dozen press conferences — Samsung takes its turn at 2 p.m. PT sharp (5 p.m. ET, 10 p.m. UK). 

You can watch the complete press conference live here — as part of CNET’s all-day livestream video coverage from Las Vegas.

What to expect from Samsung at CES 2019

Samsung was one of the first brands to break away from announcing all its flagship products at CES. For example, in November, it teased its first foldable phone design at a developer conference in San Francisco, and the brand is rumored to have a separate standalone event to launch the Galaxy S10, its anticipated marquee phone for spring 2019.

However, phones are only one part of Samsung’s portfolio. TVs, laptops and appliances like refrigerators and washing machines are also part of Samsung’s electronics kingdom.

Here’s what we think we will and won’t hear at CES.

No Galaxy S10 or Galaxy X foldable phone

Every year some overexcited rumor-monger suggests that Samsung will launch a flagship phone at CES, and every year that rumor evaporates to nothing in the desert air.

A more believable rumor tells of the Galaxy S10, Samsung’s 10th anniversary Galaxy phone, making an early debut Feb. 20, with the Galaxy X (or Galaxy F) foldable phone arriving later, perhaps in March.

Whatever Samsung does announce, we’ll be on the ground catching every detail for you. More
