The Samsung Galaxy S10 rumors and leaks are constantly coming in, and the latest leak actually shows off both the Galaxy S10 and S10+ in live photos. If you take a look at the gallery down below, you will be able to see both devices in fairly clear images, from both the front and the back, so there's very little to hide when it comes to the design of these two smartphones. These images come from Twitter, and there's a good chance they're legit.
As you can see, in the provided images, the only difference between these two phones in terms of the design lies on the front, in their front-facing cameras. The Galaxy S10 includes a single camera in the top-right corner of its display, while the Galaxy S10+ comes with two selfie cameras which are placed in the same spot. Both devices sport three cameras on the back, and those three cameras will be completely identical on both phones.
Now, if you take a look at the picture that shows the front side of the Galaxy S10+, you will be able to see the fingerprint scanning icon on the lock screen, which is more or less a confirmation that the phone will include an in-display fingerprint scanner, even though that was quite obvious thus far. Both the Galaxy S10 and S10+ will include an in-display fingerprint scanner, while the Galaxy S10e will be the only Galaxy S10-branded phone not to include such a sensor, it will ship with a side-facing fingerprint scanner.
The Prism Black Galaxy S10 is shown in the provided images, while the Pearl White Galaxy S10+ accompanies it. Both phones are made out of metal and glass, and both sport curved displays. The Galaxy S10 will include, according to rumors, a 6.1-inch QHD+ Super AMOLED, curved display, while the Galaxy S10+ will ship with a 6.4-inch QHD+ Super AMOLED, curved display.
If you take a closer look at the provided images, you will be able to notice that a power / lock key is located on the right-hand side of both phones, while the Bixby, volume up, and volume down buttons are included on the left. Both phones include a really thin "chin" below the display, and both come with Samsung's branding on the back.
One interesting thing about the design of these phones is the position of the power / lock key, as it's placed high-up on both phones, for the Galaxy S10 it makes more sense as it's a bit smaller than the S10+, but it just seems to be placed too high on the Galaxy S10+… at least it seems like it based on these, and all the other images that leaked, but we'll see what will it feel like once the two devices become official.
Early launch gets the worm
Samsung had scheduled its Unpacked event for February 20 in San Francisco, and it's pretty obvious that the Galaxy S10 series will be announced at the event, hence debuting even earlier in the year than most of its predecessors did. Samsung is planning to announce the Galaxy S10e, S10, and S10+ handsets there, and a top-of-the-line variant of the Galaxy S10+ will include a ceramic backplate, 5G support, and more RAM than all the other Galaxy S10 models, as it is rumored to ship with 12GB of RAM.
The Galaxy S10e will be the most affordable variant of the Galaxy S10, and it will be the only Galaxy S10-branded device to ship with a flat display, two rear-facing cameras, and a side-facing fingerprint scanner. The Galaxy S10e will also have the smallest display out of the bunch, as it will include a 5.8-inch fullHD+ or QHD+ panel.
