- A new leak has given us our best look yet at the Samsung Galaxy S10 Plus.
- The leak shows off the phone from every angle, confirming the presence of five cameras.
- The renders also reveal that Samsung isn’t dropping the headphone jack just yet.
We’ve had a ton of Galaxy S10 leaks in the second half of 2018, covering the camera details, model line-up and much more. But we haven’t really had a great idea of what Samsung’s flagship phones will look like.
Now, 91Mobiles and OnLeaks have delivered a ton of renders, purportedly revealing the upcoming flagship in all its glory. The new leak covers the Galaxy S10 Plus, which is expected to be larger (obviously) than the standard Galaxy S10. Aside from the images, we also get a 360 degree video (seen above) to give us a better idea of the 2019 superphone.
The leak indeed shows a triple camera setup on the rear, with all three cameras arranged horizontally. We also see a flash and what is presumably the heart-rate sensor next to the cameras.
Unlike the Galaxy Note 9 and Galaxy S9, we don’t see a rear fingerprint scanner here. There isn’t a visible scanner on the front either, because Samsung has apparently gone for an ultrasonic in-display fingerprint sensor, according to the publication. This differs from current in-display sensors on the market by using ultrasonic sound waves to verify fingerprints.
Samsung unveils Exynos 9820 with 8nm process and 8K video recording
Samsung has unveiled its new flagship system-on-chip, the Exynos 9820 (also called the Exynos 9 Series 9820). Samsung announced the new chip in a press release earlier today and it’s expected to power some variants …
Speaking of the front, the Galaxy S10 Plus sports two selfie cameras in a display hole or camera cutout, rather than in a notch. So it indeed looks like you’re getting five cameras — if the second selfie camera isn’t actually related to facial recognition. Speaking of facial recognition, it’s believed that the new phone will ditch the iris scanner in favor of a face unlock solution.
Look at the bottom of the phone and you’ll find a speaker grille, USB Type-C port, and (yes!) a headphone jack. So it tentatively seems like Samsung isn’t jumping on this controversial trend just yet. As for other design choices, we’ve got the power and volume rocker on the right, and the Bixby key on the left. We also see a Huawei-style gradient color scheme on one of the models — hopefully we see more gradient color options at launch.
