Live images of Galaxy S10, S10+ confirm major design changes
Samsung's Galaxy S10 lineup is set to launch on February 20. So far, several leaks and renders have given away details about the design and specifications of the upcoming flagships. And now, for the first time, live images of the Galaxy S10 and Galaxy S10+ have been leaked, which confirm major design changes introduced by the Korean tech giant. Here's a sneak peek.
Up front, both the S10 and S10+ feature bezel-less, curved Infinity-O displays with a single front camera on the former and a pill-shaped dual camera on the latter. Further, both phones have a horizontally-stacked triple rear camera, USB Type-C port, and a headphone jack. However, a physical fingerprint scanner is missing on both flagships, suggesting previous speculations of an in-screen fingerprint sensor are correct.
As seen in the leaked images, the S10 seems to have a marginally thicker bottom bezel than the Galaxy S10+. Hence, we expect the Plus model to offer a slightly higher screen to body ratio than the regular S10. Moreover, an earlier leak claimed that both phones will come in black, white, yellow and green colors with a gradient finish on some options.
According to previous reports and rumors, the Galaxy S10 and S10+ variants will feature 6.11-inch and 6.44-inch Super AMOLED Infinity-O displays with curved edges, QHD+ resolution and 19:9 aspect ratio, respectively. Another variant, S10 Lite will feature a flat 5.75-inch Infinity-O display with 18.5:9 aspect ratio, QHD resolution, and rear-or side-mounted fingerprint sensor or possibly an optical in-display fingerprint sensor.
Samsung's upcoming flagships will be powered by the latest mobile chipsets available. Hence, depending on markets, all Galaxy S10 models should come with Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 or Exynos 9820. Moreover, the S10-series will also debut the recently announced Android Pie-based One UI. And, Gizmodo UK previously claimed that S10 will offer Powershare - a reverse wireless charging feature (similar to Huawei Mate 20 Pro).
According to reputed tipster @IceUniverse, the top-end Galaxy S10+ will pack a 4,000mAh battery. The Galaxy S10 is said to come with a 3,500mAh battery while Galaxy S10 Lite will be backed by a 3,100mAh battery.
The Galaxy S10 Lite will come with 128GB storage and cost £669 (Rs. 60,710). The S10 will be offered in 128GB and 512GB storage options at £799 (Rs. 75,510) and £999 (Rs. 90,655), respectively. The S10 Plus will arrive in 128GB, 512GB and 1TB storage options and they will retail at £899 (Rs. 81,580), £1,099 (Rs. 99,730), and £1,399 (Rs. 1,26,956), respectively.
The S10-series will be unveiled at a Samsung Unpacked event on February 20 - just five days ahead of the Mobile World Congress 2019 event. Moreover, all variants will reportedly be available for pre-orders after the event, and will go on sale starting March 8.
