Samsung’s Galaxy S10 will come in three 4G versions that will compete directly against the three iPhones Apple released a few months ago. These are the Galaxy S10e (formerly known as Galaxy S10 Lite), Galaxy S10, and Galaxy S10+. All devices will have the same hardware, but the cheapest model, which is Samsung’s answer to Apple’s cheaper iPhone XR, will make a few compromises when it comes to design, fingerprint sensor tech, and cameras. We already saw press renders of the Galaxy S10e leak a few days ago, but we’ve got two huge leaks that provide an even better look at the phone’s remaining secrets.
First up, we have real-life images of the Galaxy S10e that show the phone booting up, and revealing its commercial name in the process, courtesy of SlashLeaks:
The images reveal the phone’s flat-screen design, and its single-lens punch-hole selfie camera — the Infinity-O display:
That’s where the fingerprint sensor is located, several reports said in the past few months, doubling as a power button. As you can see in the renders, that’s exactly the case.
The Galaxy S10 and Galaxy S10+, meanwhile, will feature sophisticated ultrasound in-display fingerprint sensors made by Qualcomm, reports also said, a technology that’s not available on any other smartphone.
The Galaxy S10e will be the cheapest Galaxy S10 version this year, but that means it’ll only ship in a single configuration, featuring 6GB of RAM and 128GB of built-in flash, a couple of leaks said in the past few weeks.
