Leak shows alleged Galaxy S10+ prototype, but it's not what we expected


The prospect of tech giant Samsung releasing a cryptocurrency wallet with its new Samsung Galaxy S10 has led to enormous excitement, but will it actually happen?

"I suspect Samsung knows this, which is why the Galaxy S10 otherwise comes jampacked with cutting-edge features including the world's first ultrasonic in-display fingerprint reader, up to four rear cameras, the option of 5G connectivity and a new entry-level budget model", Kelly added on Forbes.

The Samsung Galaxy S10 will be announced at an Unpacked event on February 20. No surprises there. If Gizmodo's information checks out, the standard Galaxy S10 will cost roughly $US1000 ($AU1385) - and that's for the lowest capacity model.

The Galaxy S10 Lite will reportedly have a flat 5.8-inch display and will be available with 128GB of onboard storage. At the level of the Samsung Galaxy S10 More, the price cvont even further.

It's worth noting that while this pricing may be accurate for the United Kingdom, converting the price into your own currency won't necessarily give you the cost for your own country. Moreover, the leak also revealed the United Kingdom pricing as well as the variants.

Samsung fans expect the company to give the S10 a design makeover to celebrate the 10th anniversary of its most successful smartphone lineup. While we've come to see the notch being the trend with Apple's iPhone X being the pioneer of this, with the new hole-in-the-screen design of the Galaxy A8s and the upcoming Huawei Nova 4, it tries to change things up by letting go of the notch trend. Meanwhile, it handset will be available in 6GB/8GB RAM + 128GB storage storage options.

As per the leaks, the Galaxy S10 will have a 6.1-inch screen. When you force users to adopt wireless by making them use adapters for wired headphones, they'll perceive these accessories as an inconvenience. The report claimed the name could change from Galaxy S10, but that's highly doubtful.

The leak confirms earlier rumors that Samsung will launch three variants of the Galaxy S flagship device this time - the Galaxy S10 Lite, the affordable among the three, the Galaxy S10 regular variant and the top-end Galaxy S10 Plus. The main rear camera has a 24MP sensor with F/1.7 aperture, the secondary camera is a 10MP telephoto lens with F/2.4 aperture, while the third camera has a 5MP sensor with F/2.2 aperture and provides depth of field information.

Notched displays are yesterday's trend; the next display craze involves a punch-hole that sits in the upper reaches of the screen that houses the front-facing camera. The S10 Lite, which is expected to be the most affordable out of the three, won't come with an in-display fingerprint sensor to keep costs down.
