The unveiling of the Samsung Galaxy 10 is expected to take place during the first half of 2019. We are observing more and more leaks around the device as we get closer to the launch, day by day. The South Korean news outlet The Bell published a report according to which the Galaxy S10 will also come with a 5G version and we expect it to come around the 5th of March in 2019.
This report mentioned that only the Samsung Galaxy S10 Plus, which got the codename Beyond 2, will come with the 5G antenna system included. If we listen to what the rumors have to say, it seems that the Galaxy S10 Plus will be the most expensive phone in the Galaxy S10 line of products.
Only after the Galaxy S10 series is officially released we would start seeing the first of the Galaxy S10 Plus 5G variant. The report also tells us that the model won’t be mass-produced at first, only about 2 million units is expected. Besides the Plus model with 5G technology, Samsung will deliver Beyond 1 (Samsung Galaxy S10) and the entry-level Beyond 0 (Samsung Galaxy S10 Mini).
Samsung Galaxy S10 Display
The current news tells us that the next Samsung Galaxy series won’t drift too far from the established ‘Infinity Display’ design with curved edges. The specs of the Galaxy S10 Plus have also surfaced and they appear to be impressive. Apparently, it will feature a five camera sensor system, a 5.8 AMOLED display and it will also include a 3D sensing camera technology.
Another thing we expect for the higher end products of the Samsung Galaxy S10 line is the introduction of an ultrasonic display-based fingerprint sensor. The Samsung Galaxy S10 Mini, on the other hand, could come with a downgraded optical fingerprint sensor.
Thanks to the company’s new performance core, the customized Mongoose M4, as reported by the tipster Ice Universe, the Galaxy S9 successor will definitely be faster. This tipster has also leaked an image on Twitter that shows a smartphone boasting a design with almost no bezels and people started speculating that it is the very Galaxy S10 itself.
People reached this conclusion after they read the tweet’s description which said: “This may be a design beyond”. The hints of the photo are that we might see no top or bottom bezel with this handset. The revamped design will be a first for Samsung and there are rumors that place Samsung on working on an earpiece introduction inside the display in order to reduce bezels and expand the Galaxy S10’s footprint of the screen.
As we previously said, the S10 is expected to feature a total of five cameras. The Galaxy S9 Plus’s successor will apparently take inspiration from Huawei P20’s Pro-like trip-camera unit. This system consists of different types of lenses, specifically a wide-angle lens, 16 MP ultra wide-angle lens and a telephoto lens as well.
Another innovation will apparently be represented by Samsung’s decision to get rid of the iris scanner. Instead, it could opt for a kind of solution that is also considered by Apple (Face ID technology) which makes up for the five camera system in the Galaxy S10.
Also coming from The Bell, it seems that the Galaxy S10 design was finalized. The upcoming Galaxy S family will exceed the previous generation in terms of size. We expect that the Infinity Display will be continued and the 3D sensing camera module is believed that it will be placed on the front.
As we said, Samsung opted for the Beyond naming system to be introduced as codenames for its upcoming mobile devices. Beyond 1 and Beyond 2 will represent the higher-end products, which will sport an in-display fingerprint scanner, while the Beyond 0 will be the accessible option from the bunch.
Let’s take it back to the photo leaked by Ice Universe. Besides the lack of presence of the top and bottom bezels, we also see no trace of a front-facing camera. Samsung Galaxy S10’s body ration could exceed Oppo Find X’s 93.8 percentage. On the side of the phone, we can see a dedicated Bixby button, alongside the power and volume keys. As with any other leak, this one must also be taken with a grain of salt.
