It looks just like the Galaxy S10, but different.

We’ve seen plenty of Galaxy S10 and S10 Plus leaks, but now, Samsung’s more budget-friendly Galaxy S10E is finally making an appearance on the web thanks to new renders from WinFuture.

In the renders, we see a device that’s strikingly similar to that of the more premium Galaxy S10 and S10 Plus. However, there are some differences. For one, the S10E’s 5.8-inch screen is surrounded by much thicker bezels. They aren’t too thick or anything, but they’re definitely more pronounced than they are on the regular S10.

What’s more, the S10E also doesn’t appear to have a curved screen at either side. Samsung’s going for a flat approach here which should help drive down costs.

Also with the S10E, Samsung is including a side-mounted fingerprint reader integrated with the power button. We’ve never seen the company implement such a sensor the past, and it’s a direct departure from the S10 and S10 Plus’ in-display fingerprint scanners.

It’s also worth pointing out the S10E will only ship with two rear cameras instead of three like on the other two S10s. It still utilizes an Infinity-O hole-punch cutout for the single selfie camera, but with this device, your photography may be a bit more limited.

Finally, rumor has it the S10E will start around $859. That’s $60 more than the iPhone XR, the device’s main competition. So long as Samsung can provide a good reason to buy the S10E over the XR, I can see more people choosing this device over Apple’s.

We expect the Galaxy S10E to launch on February 20th alongside all the other S10s Samsung is readying. Stay tuned for future updates.
