Samsung Galaxy S10 Plus: It is becoming increasingly certain that the new Samsung Galaxy S10 Plus will be fitted with a dual sensor setup in the front for taking selfies. The immediate question would then be – what kind of a modification can be expected in the Infinity O design with the tiny hole on the screen? The answer might lie in the rumored images of the phone now circulating online.
One Normal and One Wide-Angled Lens
In order to make the clicking of group selfies, there is the need to have a wide-angled lens to support the regular one. The size of the wide-angled lens would be larger than the regular one. The challenge for Samsung with the avowed objective of keeping the notch out and limiting the ultrasonic sensor to the special 5G edition of the Samsung Galaxy S10, 10th-anniversary edition, can, therefore, be appreciated. The only options are depicted in the image here; either have an elliptical hole to have the cameras placed horizontally or have 2 separate holes, one bigger and one smaller.
But sometimes the size of the dual camera is not the same, the separate cameras are bigger and the other one is smaller, and it is better to put them together. pic.twitter.com/vScNdKZcVE

Some new renders have appeared which do confirm that the Samsung Galaxy S10 Plus will have 3 cameras placed horizontally next to each other in the rear and 2 in the front, again alongside horizontally. The phone’s dimensions have been revealed to be 157.5 mm x 75.0 mm x 7.8 mm. There appears to be some certainty of the fingerprint sensor to unlock the phone placed beneath the display surface. The earlier sense was that the facial ID unlocking feature will not be featured in these phones, particularly the iris scanner, there is a possibility there might be a tweaked facial ID, but this needs to be confirmed.
The Headphone Jack May Go
The other strong rumor about the Samsung Galaxy S10 phones is with regard to the 3.5mm audio jack. Many modern top-end smartphones have done away with the jack leaving the users to rely on Bluetooth speakers and wireless headsets and earbuds to listen to music or even for making hands-free voice calls. The only clarity now missing is if this would hold good for all the Galaxy S10 models or just the special 5G enabled version only. According to a popular leakster, the Galaxy S10 5G phone might skip the 3.5mm jack. It helps the designers of the smartphones to fit in a larger battery desperately needed in these phones with a 6.7-inch display screen and other power consuming features.
Lastly, there is certainty on Samsung using its Exynos 9820 SoC at least for many key markets, whether it will be the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 or the still be released 8150 SoC for markets like the US is still not clear. As of now, just take a look at the image renders of the upcoming magnificent Galaxy S10 Plus device.
