Here's everything we know about Galaxy S10.

According to the Bloomberg report, which agrees with previous leaks and reports, Samsung will offer three variants of its upcoming 10th-anniversary edition flagship.

Firstly, there's a Galaxy S10+ (codenamed Beyond 2) which will succeed the Samsung Galaxy 9+ and pack high-tech stuff.

Then, you have Galaxy S10 (codenamed Beyond) and lastly, a new cheaper flagship variant (codenamed Beyond 0) with trimmed down specs.

Galaxy S10 will be Samsung's first 5G smartphone

Bloomberg reports Samsung is "in talks with Verizon Communications Inc. to launch its Galaxy S10 in the US with a fifth-generation wireless chipset." This means S10 will support the recently announced Exynos Modem 5100, designed to deliver 2Gbps (maximum) downlink speed and support existing networks.

Samsung Galaxy S10: A new design awaits all

Bloomberg, citing people familiar with the matter, reports the standard S10 and S10+ will feature a notch-free curved OLED screen with "almost no bezel at the top and bottom" - a design Apple envisioned for its iPhone X.

Further, the S10 will feature triple rear cameras while the front camera will be "visible and tucked under the screen", according to Bloomberg.

Samsung has already confirmed an in-display fingerprint sensor

Samsung has embedded an all-new fingerprint sensor under the display of its upcoming flagship. Notably, the S10 and S10+ will feature this in-display fingerprint sensor. However, the cheaper S10 model, that won't feature S10's dual-curve "edge" screen, will get a side-mounted fingerprint reader.
