Samsung will be unveiling its next-generation Galaxy lineup of flagship smartphones at the company’s Unpacked event to be held at San Francisco on February 20. If all the rumors are to be believed, the company will be launching a trio of smartphones dubbed the Galaxy S10, S10+, and S10E. While the S10 and S10+ are expected to be successors to the S9 and S9+, the S10E might be the firm’s base level offering.
A lot of images showing the purported devices off, either being used publicly, in the production line or through CAD renders have provided a lot of hints at what the phones might look like. Today, another leak from 91mobiles adds to the long list of leaks, reportedly giving us the first official render of the top-tier S10+.
The renders add credence to the rumors of the larger S10+ variant sporting a larger Infinity-O punch-hole style display that houses dual front-facing cameras. The rear of the device is seen sporting a triple camera setup, placed horizontally, accompanied by the flash and the optical heart rate sensor. The absence of a capacitive fingerprint sensor at the back hints that the device will indeed sport an in-display fingerprint sensor of the ultrasonic kind for biometric authentication, as previously rumored. However, the slimmed bezels along with the display that extends further to the edges may result in the removal of the iris scanner that does duty on the earlier generation flagships.
As for specs, the S10+ is rumored to sport a 6.4-inch AMOLED Infinity display with a 2K resolution. The phone is expected to be powered by either a Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 or an Exynos 9820 chipset, depending on the market, coupled with at least 6GB of RAM and the possibility of up to a terabyte of on-device storage. According to the renders, it looks like the handset is also expected to be offered in a new ‘Prism White’ gradient color. Earlier leaks also hint at more gradient colors for the device. The new color is reminiscent of what Huawei offers with the P20 and Mate 20 range.
Rumors and leaks may not always be accurate, and as the official unveil of the next-generation Galaxy devices isn’t too far from now, we are closer than ever to learn the official specs of the devices. Neowin will be at the Unpacked event, bringing all the news that Samsung has to offer, along with possible a first-look at the devices. Keep an eye on our Unpacked coverage on February 20.
