A China-based tipster, Ice Universe, has just shared a rather interesting new photo which may represent the Samsung Galaxy S10 prototype. Having said that, the source did not specifically mention this is the Galaxy S10, but many people seem to think it is, and and considering that the company will probably look to improve upon the Galaxy S9's design next year, it may as well be. A third physical key on the right is yet another hint that this may be the Galaxy S10, but we'll talk about that in a minute. The Galaxy S8 and S9 have a really similar design, and as most of you know, Samsung usually does a significant redesign of its flagship Galaxy S line every two years, so the Galaxy S10 is expected to represent a significant step forward.
In any case, if you take a look at the provided image, you will see a phone which has basically no bezel around it, and it sports a curved display on the sides, which represents yet another hint that this may be a prototype of the Galaxy S10. If this phone becomes a reality, it will definitely have the highest screen-to-body ratio out there. The power / lock key is included on the right-hand side of the phone, while the device's volume up and down buttons are included on the left, along with another physical key below them, and we're presuming that's Samsung's dedicated Bixby key. OPPO actually came up with a rather interesting design, and have released a phone with the highest screen-to-body ratio yesterday, the OPPO Find X. The device that leaked today, however, will have a significantly higher screen-to-body ratio if it ever becomes a reality, and it will also bring forth some interesting, innovative tech, as it needs to utilize a number of sensors, an earpiece and a front-facing camera without adding any bezel to the device.
The Samsung Galaxy S10 is expected to arrive in the first quarter of next year, as Samsung will probably announce it at the Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2019 in Barcelona, so we still have a long way to go before the phone arrives. The Galaxy S10 is expected to ship with Samsung's next-gen Exynos SoC which has not been announced yet, and another variant with Qualcomm's next-gen flagship is also expected, as was the case with the Galaxy S9 lineup. The device will utilize at least 6GB of RAM, and Samsung is once again expected to introduce two different models, the Galaxy S10 and S10 Plus will probably become a reality next year.
