Samsung is set to unveil the Galaxy S10 and S10 Plus at an event on February 20th in San Francisco, and now, we’re getting a real-life look at the phones thanks to newly leaked images.
The first round of leaks comes from Ben Geskin on Twitter who shared the following photos. According to the pictures, the S10 will essentially feature what we’ve been expecting for months: skinny bezels surrounding the screen, a hole-punch selfie camera, and a curvy design. Interesting, it looks like the S10 will come with some type of crypotcurrency wallet pre-installed or available through Samsung’s app store. We should have more info on this when the device is actually unveiled.
The second batch of leaks is much more revealing as we get a glimpse at both phones on the front and back. Via AllAboutSamsung, these Galaxy S10 images reveal both the standard S10 and S10 Plus. We can see both phones have slim bezels around their screens with slightly-thicker chins at the bottom. They also come with hole-punch displays, with the S10 opting for one selfie camera and the S10 Plus gaining two.
On the back, the devices come with three rear cameras, likely offering different focal lengths similar to the LG V40 and Huawei Mate 20 Pro. On the bottom, there’s a speaker grille, USB-C port, and headphone jack (!). There’s also a slightly-tweaked boot-up screen for the new Galaxies. Previously, when you turned on a Samsung phone, it would display the device’s full name (e.g. “Samsung Galaxy Note 9”). Now, though, it just says “Samsung Galaxy.” It’s a small change, but it’s one that I noticed right away.
We’re expecting the Galaxy S10 and S10 Plus to come with Snapdragon 855 processors, in-display fingerprint readers, Android Pie with Samsung’s One UI, and pretty large screens at 6.1-inches for the standard S10 and 6.4-inches for the S10 Plus. Not included in today’s leaks is a rumored “S10E” or S10 “Lite” which is said to be cheaper and offer a 5.8-inch display alongside similar internal specs.
With less than a month to go, we’ll likely still see a few more S10 leaks before Samsung makes the devices official.
