Samsung Galaxy S10 (SM-G9730) and S10+ (SM-G9750) have received approval from China’s 3C (China Compulsory Certificate) body.
Samsung has already confirmed that it will be debuting the Galaxy S10 series on February 20 through Unpacked event in San Francisco, U.S. Since 3C is one of the prerequisite approvals for smartphones to go official in China, it appears that the South Korean company could be gearing up to launch the Galaxy S10 and S10 Plus smartphones in China.

Recent reports have revealed that the SM-G973 and SM-G975 are the respective model numbers of the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S10 and Galaxy S10 Plus smartphones. Hence, it can be assumed that the SM-G9730 model number that has surfaced through the 3C certification seems to belong to the Galaxy S10 whereas the SM-G9750 model number may belong to the Galaxy S10+.
The EP-TA200 charger that will come along with the S10 and S10 Plus will carry support for 9V/1.67A and 5V/2V charging rates. It is the very same charger that was made available with flagship phones such as Galaxy Note 9, Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ and several other Samsung phones and tablets including Samsung Galaxy A8s, A8 Star, A9, S8 Lite, Note 8, Tab S3 and Tab S4.

The Galaxy S10 series also includes an entry-level model called Galaxy S10 E (also referred to as Galaxy S10 Lite in rumors). Since the Galaxy S10 E has not received approval from 3C authority yet, it appears that the handset may either arrive later or may not launch in China. Rumors have also revealed that the Galaxy S10 series will also include a phone called Galaxy S10 X which is nothing but a 5G-ready version of the S10 that may come with better specs than the Galaxy S10 Plus.
