The Samsung Galaxy S10 is the star of another leak yet again, but this time around, it's making the headlines along with the company's new truly wireless earphones aptly called Galaxy Buds.
At this point, everybody's already gotten a good idea of what the upcoming flagship could look like, and that goes for just about every expected variant, including the budget model. Now the new set of leaks shows more than the design, as it more or less confirms the under-display fingerprint reader and shows off the handset reverse charging the aforementioned earbuds wirelessly.
First Look At The Galaxy Buds
This early peek at the Galaxy Buds comes from Roland Quandt of WinFuture, and it's in the form of a promotional ad. It shows the earphones in their presumably wireless charging case sitting on top of the Galaxy S10, where the green light indicators are a dead giveaway of the reverse charging feature.

Speaking of which, reverse charging was just a rumor before. Until any official announcement, it technically still is one, but from what can be gathered, it seems to be the real deal.
On an interesting note, the Galaxy Buds appear to sport the same design as the Gear IconX (2018), and it looks like Samsung is gradually labeling all its products with its Galaxy branding.
Galaxy S10 In-Screen Fingerprint Sensor
The Galaxy S10 has long been rumored to have an in-display fingerprint reader, and this leak with live images of the smartphone posted by SaudiAndroid on Twitter reaffirms it (via SamMobile). It's already been taken down at the time of this writing, though.
At any rate, it shows the front and back of the Galaxy S10 and Galaxy S10 Plus in "Prism White" and "Prism Black." The dual front-camera setup on the Plus variant is also confirmed here, as well as the triple camera configuration on the back in a horizontal layout.
This lines up with a previous leak from Evan Blass, who posted renders of the Galaxy S10E (the alleged budget model), Galaxy S10, and Galaxy S10 Plus in January.
Regarding the back of the devices, Quandt also uploaded a side-by-side image of the Ceramic Black and Prism Black options, giving a good look at the difference between the two. Now this aligns with the rumor that the top-of-the-line model of the handset will come equipped with a ceramic back cover.
The Galaxy S10 is set to be unveiled on Feb. 20 at Samsung's Unpacked Event, where the Galaxy Buds are also rumored to make their debut.
