Samsung’s Galaxy S10 and S10+ smartphones are looking to become one of the hottest smartphones, and as we’re waiting for the company to introduce the two phones, concept designs for both smartphones have surfaced online, courtesy of DBS DESIGNING YouTube channel. Now, considering we’ve seen tons of Galaxy S10 and S10+ leaks and rumors thus far, the source actually based these concept designs after that info, so the design of both phones could actually be quite close to the final, actual design of the Galaxy S10 and S10+. The video in which these designs are shown off is embedded down below, and it has a duration of a minute and a half, so feel free to take a peek.
As you can see, both phones shown here are made out of metal and glass, which are materials that Samsung is expected to use, as it did for the Galaxy S9 series, S8 series, and so on. The back side of the concept Galaxy S10 and S10+ units is not as curved as some leaks suggested (it barely sports curves on the side), while both phones sport curved displays as well. On the back of both devices, you will find Samsung’s logo, though the two phones offer different camera setups, other than that, their design is identical. This concept Galaxy S10 comes with two cameras on the back, and those cameras are horizontally-aligned, while an LED flash is located next to them, along with a heart-rate sensor. In the Galaxy S10+’s case, there are four cameras on the back, and the alignment is identical as on the Galaxy S10, but with more cameras, of course. As far as front-facing units are concerned, the Galaxy S10 comes with one, while the Galaxy S10+ sports two such cameras. Front-facing cameras on both phones are placed in the top-right corner of the display, and as you can see, these cameras are basically placed in the display, not under it, which means we’re getting display holes here, as leaks suggested.
These two concept devices basically don’t have bezels at all, not even a chin below the display, while the real-life units probably will have some bezel down there. The power / lock key is located on the right-hand side of both devices, and is in a different color to the rest of the phone. The volume up, volume down, and Bixby buttons are included on the left-hand side of the concept Galaxy S10 and S10+ units. The loudspeaker on both devices is included on the bottom, along with a Type-C USB port. These concept Galaxy S10 and S10+ devices do not have a 3.5mm headphone jack, though the real Galaxy S10 and S10+ units may sport such a port. A fingerprint scanner is not visible on either of the two devices because it’s included below the display. The source actually envisioned these two devices in a number of color variants, so you will be able to see black, gray, blue, gold, and red-colored Galaxy S10 and S10+ devices in the provided video.
Real Galaxy S10 & S10+, What To Expect
The real Samsung Galaxy S10 and S10+ will probably resemble these concept designs to a degree, though may differ a bit, as the real Galaxy S10 and S10+ are expected to have a slightly thicker “chin” on the bottom, and may even have a thin bezel at the top. On top of that, it’s possible that the curve on the back will be a bit more pronounced than on these two concept smartphones. The Galaxy S10 and S10+ will almost certainly arrive in two SoC variants, European and Indian models will be fueled by the Exynos 9820, while the US and China models will ship with the Snapdragon 855. Both devices are expected to start at 6GB of RAM, though it’s possible that Samsung will offer more than one RAM setup for both devices, even though the company doesn’t really have a habit of doing that, but we’ll see. Android 9 Pie will come pre-installed on both phones, along with Samsung’s brand new One UI Android overlay. We still do not have detail on the cameras that Samsung plans to include, but the company will look to improve in that regard compared to the Galaxy S9 series, of course. Needless to say, these two phones are amongst the most anticipated smartphones of this year, and presuming you don’t mind display camera holes, and Samsung’s new overlay, there a lot to look forward to here. Those display camera holes are a hot topic at the moment, as people are wondering if they’re an improvement over notches… to each its own, but it seems the same thing in a different package, it’s still rather distracting… but who knows, by 2020, or 2021, we may get under-the-display selfie cameras, and both notches and display holes may become a thing of the past.
