The Samsung Galaxy S10+ has been all over the news lately as a number of rumors and leaks surfaced, and the phone has just appeared once again, this time on Reddit. A real-life image of the phone appeared, but its design is somewhat obstructed by a security case, as it’s clearly noticeable.
A person in the comment called “ActuallyWorkOnBixby” said that the person in the picture looks like a worker who is on a bus to/from Suwon campus, and that he removed the security software that is usually included on such a device as well, software that puts a watermark and an employee device ID on the display. He also notes that it’s not easy to do that.
Now, the phone’s full design may not be shown here, and the image is a bit grainy, but it’s easy to notice that the phone’s bezels will be extremely thin, despite the fact this phone has a case on it. On top of that, two selfie cameras are included in the top-right corner of the phone, and considering that the Galaxy S10 and S10 E (aka S10 Lite) will sport only one selfie camera, this is quite probably the Galaxy S10+, or the 5G-enabled Galaxy S10+ variant which will probably be called the Galaxy S10 X.
You will notice that on-screen buttons are included here, and a recent report said that on-screen buttons will be enabled by default on the device, but users will get the option to switch to Samsung’s navigation gestures in One UI. The phone’s display sports rounded corners, which is also easily noticeable in the provided image.
Story Thus Far
Tons of rumors and leaks have been popping up in recent weeks, and things are becoming far clearer than before. If that info is to be believed, Samsung will announce four Galaxy S10-branded smartphones in 2019, three of which will probably launch on February 20, while the fourth one may arrive at a later date.
Samsung will introduce the Galaxy S10 E (aka S10 Lite), S10, S10+, and S10 X (aka 5G-enabled Galaxy S10). The Galaxy S10 E and S10 will include one camera on the front, two on the back, and will be smaller than the other two phones, not to mention that the Galaxy S10 E will include a flat display. The Galaxy S10+ will sport a curved display, at least 6GB of RAM, and five cameras overall. The Galaxy S10 X will come with a ceramic back, curved display, and six cameras overall.
All the Galaxy S10-branded smartphones will ship with the same processor, the Exynos 9820 in Europe and India, and Snapdragon 855 in the US and China. All phones will come with Android 9 Pie out of the box, and Samsung’s One UI software on top of it. All phones will look similar, but will be different in size, camera setups, and every one of them will come with a glass back, except the Galaxy S10 X.
Samsung had already scheduled its Unpacked event for the Galaxy S10, and it will be held on February 20 San Francisco. It remains to be seen if all four devices will be announced, or just the first three, without the 5G-enabled one.
