In a move that probably won't even surprise anyone these days, alleged press renders of the Samsung Galaxy S10 phones have surfaced, showing the handset's complete design.
These latest ones are the clearest, most official-looking images of the handset released thus far, and they reveal details that line up with previous leaks about the phone's design.
Particularly notable about the Galaxy S10 Plus render is its display, which features an elongated punch hole cutout on the upper right corner. This should perhaps come as no shock, as most people have already seen this type of design on previous leaks. On the rear panel, there's a wide strip containing what appears to be a triple-camera system — speculated to contain a wide-angle, telephoto, and standard lens — a flash module, and all sorts of sensors typically found on Samsung phones.
Where's The Fingerprint Sensor?
However, there's one thing missing: a fingerprint sensor. This suggests a number of things. First possibility: The Galaxy S10 lineup could have an in-display fingerprint sensor instead. Second possibility: The Galaxy S10 could have a facial recognition system as fast and accurate as Face ID on iPhone X. Third possibility: These renders aren't real and the Galaxy S10 would actually still have a traditional fingerprint sensor.
If the first possibility is correct, it'll be a first for Samsung, although it wouldn't be the first in the overall industry. That honor belongs to Vivo. In any case, the feature will most likely be a welcome change among Samsung customers.
Galaxy S10 Rumors
The Galaxy S10 Plus is rumored to have a 6.4-inch display, similar to the Galaxy Note 9. Rumors say other sizes will be available, including a 5.8-inch variant and a much larger 6.7-inch model, which is rumored to be a 5G-capable device with a six cameras.
Speculation points to a Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 processor for all the models, 6 GB of RAM, and possibly up to 1 TB of storage. Previous leaks have also shown that Samsung is keeping the headphone jack, in addition to the physical Bixby key off to the side that many users find annoying and then end up remapping to trigger a different action instead.
