Samsung Galaxy S10, S10 Lite and S10+: From new renders of the next flagship smartphones from Samsung, the Samsung Galaxy S10 is likely to have only a dual camera set up while the higher-end S10 or Plus variant will have all four sensors in place. Generally, the smartphone makers don’t make such marked changes in different variants of the same model. Some difference in the RAM or the storage is quite common, but this may be a departure from the trend.
Renders Show More Details
The images of the Samsung Galaxy S10 shared on Twitter by Ice Universe, usually considered very reliable, give us more details. For starters, one can see that the back panel is of glass and is curved like a trough. And besides the two sensors fixed alongside each other, you have the LED flash. The blood pressure monitor can be spotted as well. What is, however, missing in the rear panel is the physical fingerprint scanner. Does it indicate this variant of the Samsung Galaxy S10 phones will have the in-display fingerprint scanner as well? You have to consider that as a possibility going by this render.

The other clear points to emerge are the volume rocker is on the right side of the phone. The other button must be for activating Bixby, a standard Samsung has developed of late. The power button to switch off the device and switch back on is on the left side.
For whatever it is worth, this particular image shared by Ice Universe shows a case made of polyurethane material, but the window appearing on the back of this case seems larger than the size of the cameras housing unit on the phone. Apparently, this image could have come out of a case maker for the Samsung Galaxy S10 phones.
There was another update today from the leakster Evan Blass which clearly reveals the designs of the front-facing screen of all 3 models in the S10 lineup.

Will it be the Snapdragon 855 SoC for all variants?
While the debate has been on about the exact processor to be fitted by Samsung on the new phones to be launched in February/March next year, at least one aspect was confirmed a couple of days back when Samsung and Qualcomm jointly said the new Snapdragon 855 SoC will be the chipset driving the 5G variant of the new phone to be launched in March. The other three variants, the Samsung Galaxy S10, S10 Plus and S10 Lite were thought to be coming with either the Snapdragon 845 Soc or Samsung’s Exynos 9820. Now that the Snapdragon 855 SoC has been unveiled will the South Korean company fit the latest chipset or will it have different processors for the three variants as being predicted above for the cameras?
