On the 3rd of January, Evan Blass released the first leak about the latest Samsung Galaxy S10. The working title of this first leaked device was known as ‘Beyond 1’ (S10); further he leaked about ‘Beyond 2’ (S10 Plus) along with S10E.
The most interesting unofficial leak till date, was about the hole-punch camera, the headphone jack and the USB-C port.
According to All About Samsung, the upcoming Samsung flagship will have tiny bezels, front-facing cameras that poke through the display, a USB-C port and a headphone jack. Read on to know more.
What are the 3 variants of Samsung Galaxy S10 –
The leak mentioned by All About Samsung sort of meshes with the past leaks. Basically, there could be three variations of the phone: the S10, S10+ and a new version called the S10E.
As you can see on the photo, the new devices don’t have a notch. They feature a hole-punch front/selfie camera instead. If you’re looking for the fingerprint sensor, Samsung could choose to embed it in the screen.
It’s been reported that Samsung will position the S10 as the main model, with the S10+ being the large-screen model (and the only with dual-front facing cameras). The S10E will likely be a less expensive version and could even have an LCD screen instead of an OLED screen. Here are the specifications/details –
On the front, the Galaxy S10, in contrast to the Galaxy S10 + has only a front camera, but with both devices in the display instead of above it in the upper frame. Both devices come with a USB Type-C port and luckily with a 3.5mm jack plug to listen to music.
On the back of this time are three cameras, which are arranged side by side. We did not get any further information on the specifications here – it is quite possible that it will stay with the specs published in July 2018.
Incidentally, the boot logo will probably change – the above devices are two prototypes.

The unanswered questions –
Most of the phone’s details have leaked out, but a few questions remain. Will the phone have a fingerprint reader embedded into the screen? Will the phones have improved facial recognition to compete more directly with Apple’s Face ID? And lastly, will Samsung jack up the prices in line with the latest iPhone prices?
But the good news is, we have almost a month before Samsung unveils the new device/devices at an event in San Francisco; i.e. on the 20th of February, 2019. Hence, with all the sources available, we could probably get some more leaks which could answer the above questions. For now, we could only wait.
