A number of new details surrounding next year’s Samsung Galaxy S10 have emerged via a user on Weibo. Although the Galaxy S9 line is yet to be officially revealed, it appears it’s never too early to speculate about future devices as a user on Chinese social network Weibo has made clear. The user has listed a number of supposed specs, which are reserved for Samsung’s tenth-generation Galaxy S flagship.

As expected with any Galaxy flagship, the device is listed as featuring a high-end custom CPU, likely Exynos-branded, alongside a custom GPU and a dedicated neural processing unit, putting it on par with Huawei’s latest devices. All of this will allegedly be accompanied by an unspecified amount of LPDDR5 RAM. In addition to this, new UFS 3.0 memory is said to be expected, more than doubling the speed of data transfers versus the current generation, while also consuming less power. In fact, the Galaxy S10 is also said to incorporate a larger battery that will adopt a new “L” shape to further increase the overall battery life. Another significant upgrade will be support for 5G networks, which are expected to be available to consumers sometime next year. In terms of the design, the Galaxy S10 is said to take the current bezel-less trend to the next level, reaching an impressive 93-percent screen-to-body ratio. Speaking of the display, it’s also mentioned the inclusion of an in-display fingerprint sensor, while the panel itself will be once again be AMOLED. Other important features will include a big focus on 3D features such as face scanning, and advanced AI.

It’s still early to begin speculating about Samsung’s 2019 Galaxy S devices, but it will certainly be interesting to see what the final device looks like both outside and in this time next year. For now, though, the focus of most leaks and rumors is on the Samsung Galaxy S9 lineup which has been confirmed to debut at MWC in Barcelona. Overall, the lineup is expected to feature a similar design to last year’s Galaxy S8 series, albeit with a relocated fingerprint sensor, while the internals are set to be upgraded significantly, with a large focus being put on the camera.
