Samsung Galaxy S10 Lite will have the smallest 5.8-inch display. The phone is codenamed Beyond 0 and will come with model number SM-G970F. Up next is the standard Galaxy S10 variant with model number SM-G973F and code name Beyond 1. It will feature a 6.1-inch screen. Both the phones will have a single front camera. Samsung Galaxy S10+ with model number SM-G975F will sport the largest 6.4-inch display and it is code named Beyond 2.
Samsung is largely expected to launch three variants of the Galaxy S10 next year. Renders for all the three variants has now leaked online, along with leaks of the protective film and a separate render of the Galaxy S10 Lite as well. The Samsung Galaxy S10 Lite is expected to be the cheapest variant of all, and the Galaxy S10+ is expected to be the most premium. All the three variants will sport the Infinity-O type display with the hole for selfie camera design. The Samsung Galaxy S10+ is expected to sport dual front cameras, whereas the other two to sport single cut outs up front.
Olixar has already started selling protective cases and covers of the Samsung Galaxy S10. The MobileFun listings suggest that all the three variants will look the same up front – with the Galaxy S10 Lite sporting a 5.8-inch display, the Galaxy S10 sporting a 6.1-inch display, and the Galaxy S10+ sporting a 6.4-inch display. This listing was spotted by SamMobile first.
The first two variants are seen to sport a triple camera setup at the back, while the Galaxy S10+ variant is seen to sport quad cameras at the back. There’s no rear fingerprint scanner in sight, so it’s either mounted on the side or underneath the display. The most premium variant is tipped to sport an ultrasonic fingerprint sensor, while the cheapest variant may mount it on the side edges.
A separate leak, courtesy tipster Ice Universe, of the protective film confirms the front of the Galaxy S10 Lite. It reiterates the Infinity-O type display design, lending more weight to recent rumours. He has also published a concept render showing off the same front of the Galaxy S10 Lite as the Olixar listings.
Samsung Galaxy S10 will ship with the company’s new Infinity O display with in-display camera hole for front camera sensors. Both Galaxy S10 Lite and Galaxy S10 will have a single hole on top of the screen at the center to include the front camera sensor. Samsung Galaxy S10+ will have two holes, which translates in to two front cameras. The biggest variant will reportedly have a total of sixcameras – four at the back and two on the front.
The tipster also notes that the Samsung Galaxy S10 Lite will sport a 5.8-inch 2K+ Super AMOLED display with 18.5:9 aspect ratio, the Samsung Galaxy S10 will sport a 6.1-inch 2K+ Super AMOLED display with 19:9 aspect ratio, and the Samsung Galaxy S10+ will sport a 6.4-inch 2K+ Super AMOLED display with 19:9 aspect ratio.
Apart from the regular models, Samsung is currently in the news for developing a 10th-anniversary Galaxy S10 model that is codenamed “Beyond X” and is speculated to have 5G support as well as a total of six cameras. The new flagship is expected to arrive early next year.
Samsung Galaxy S10+ could offer a screen-to-body ratio of more than 90 per cent. Rumours suggest that it could come with up to 1TB internal storage. While the phone could run the Exynos 9820 processor in India, it is expected to retail in the US with Snapdragon 855, that was launched recently. The Snapdragon 855 processor is also 5G-ready and Samsung is partnering with Verizon to launch its 5G-ready Galaxy S10+ in the first half of 2019.
Based on what we know so far, the Galaxy S10 Lite will not come with an in-display fingerprint sensor. Instead, Samsung will be opting for a side-mounted fingerprint sensor. The Galaxy S10 Lite is also said to come with a dual camera system on the back and a 3.5mm headphone jack. A newer tweet by Ice Universe claims that the Galaxy S10 Lite, S10 and S10+ will come with 5.8-inch, 6.1-inch and 6.4-inch displays, respectively.
