Another day, another leak, and this time we have the real-world pictures of Samsung’s upcoming flagship Galaxy S10 series.
This leak comes from the German site AllAboutSamsung which managed to grab the stills from different angles, giving a good overview of how the smartphones will look. But we need to keep in mind that these are “prototype” images and things could change at the launch.
Anyway, the design is more or less what we already expected. Like you have the Infinity-O (Hole-punch) display on the Galaxy S10 (left) with a cutout for a single camera. Galaxy S10+ (right) has dual cameras on the front inside and a cut out which looks more like a ‘pill’ than an ‘O’.
When every other company was running after Apple’s notch, Samsung was the one who stayed back, and now it has done a great job with its near edge-to-edge displays.
The bottom part of both the phones features the speaker grill, a USB-C port, and thanks to Samsung it is still trying to preserve the good old headphone jack.
One the back side, both the phones have a triple camera setup along with LED flash and heart rate sensor. Here one rumor that has been going around is that the biggest variant of the S10 series, codenamed Beyond X (not in the picture), is going to have a quad-camera setup with 5G connectivity. Yes, 2019 is going to be the year of 5G phones.
Regarding the specs, there is no concrete information available. But it’s expected that S10 could have a Snapdragon 855 variant alongside an Exynos 9820 variant, possibly with LPDDR5 RAM and Qualcomm’s Ultrasonic fingerprint sensor on board. Also, there have been reports of Samsung adding a cryptocurrency wallet to Galaxy S10, so it’ll be interesting to see it in action.
