So far, we’ve seen leaked renders (and even real-life photos) of the Samsung Galaxy S10 and Galaxy S10 Plus, but we’ve yet to see anything for the cheaper variant. Today, we get our first look at what appears to be the Samsung Galaxy S10e, via press renders leaked by Roland Quandt over at WinFuture.
The Samsung Galaxy S10e will likely be a little smaller than the vanilla S10 and S10 Plus. It will also likely feature cheaper build materials and might even be missing some functionality present on the other two devices. However, the Galaxy S10e is expected to be less expensive than the S10 and S10 Plus.
Samsung Galaxy S10: All the rumors in one place (Updated February 1)
In 2019, Samsung will launch its follow up to the Galaxy S9 …
From the renders below, we can see that the S10e will likely feature a flat display panel with larger bezels than the S10 and S10 Plus. We can also see it will have a single selfie camera (in a hole-punch cutout) and a dual camera setup on the rear.
Check out the renders below:
You can see that there are three colors with this leak. However, we expect more colors to come when the Galaxy S10e releases, particularly a yellow variant.
You’ll also notice that there is no fingerprint scanner on the back. While we expect the Galaxy S10 and S10 Plus to feature an ultrasonic in-display fingerprint scanner, the Galaxy S10e above will likely feature a side-mounted fingerprint sensor instead, built into the power button. You can also see what we assume is the Bixby button under the volume rocker.
Luckily, the render suggests the S10e will have a headphone port, which is certainly good news for many Android fans out there.
What do you think? Is the Samsung Galaxy S10e on your radar, or will you pass on this and go for the more expensive versions (or something else)? Let us know in the comments!
