As 5G is the future of connectivity, Samsung has been racing to get its first 5G-ready device into the market.

Rumors suggest the first 5G device from the company will be a variant of its Galaxy S10, but it is not clear if this is the same unit.

It was sitting in a protective cover inside a transparent box, hiding all the key details.

Still, the punch hole camera was spotted

Venture Beat shared photographs of the device, revealing Bixby and volume rockers on the left and power button on the right side.

The unit looked pretty thin and even seemed to have a punch hole camera in the upper right corner.

Notably, this falls in line with the rumors suggesting that one Galaxy S10 model will come with a punch hole camera design.
