We already know how the Samsung Galaxy S10 and S10+ will look like from the leaks before. There have been a few alleged Samsung Galaxy S10, and S10+ leaked in renders already. Now, we have a new render showing the device encased in a transparent case. The alleged leaked render shows the design of the smartphone. For example, we see a large screen with extremely thin edges and a hole for the front camera.
Samsung Galaxy S10 design
The render is published by Forbes and shows the Samsung Galaxy S10 in a case. The most striking part of the phone is the large screen, which has much thinner edges than the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S9 and almost completely front-filling. A small bezel can be seen at the bottom, while the front camera has been placed into a ‘hole’ in the upper right corner.
A triple camera module resides at the back which probably sports a regular lens, a telephoto lens, and a wide-angle lens. The fingerprint scanner is missing here, as it is reportedly packed under the screen. We have already seen under-the-display fingerprint readers on devices such as OnePlus 6T, Huawei Mate 20 Pro, and Vivo Nex but the fingerprint on the Samsung Galaxy S10 is an ultrasonic one.
Ultrasonic Sensor and specifications
It is a 3D Sonic Sensor, which makes a scan of your finger on the basis of sound waves. This makes the scanner work even if your finger is wet or slanted on the screen. The fingerprint scanner is expected to work a lot faster and more accurately than the optical scanners that are now mainly used. Here is our explainer article how the optical fingerprint scanner differs from the ultrasonic fingerprint scanner.
Most specifications of the Galaxy S10 are also known. The device has a 6.1-inch screen, while the S10 Plus has a 6.4-inch display. Under the hood is probably the Exynos 9820 chip along with 6 GB of RAM and 128 GB of storage space. The S10 runs Android 9.0 (Pie) out of the box with Samsung’s new OneUI interface.
Samsung is expected to present its new flagships in February, during the Mobile World Congress 2019 (25 – 28 February). The official release may then follow a month later.
