Gizmodo also has a thin sense of how much the device will cost; The so-called "budget model" will offer 12GB of storage and retail for $ 699, the regular S10 will offer 128GB or 512GB of storage for 799 and 999, respectively, and the S10 Plus will offer 128GB, 512GB and 1TB variants priced at £ 899, £ 1,099 and an eye-catching £ 1,399.

There is not much information about the reputation 5G variant, but Gizmodo notes that 5G services will not be available on the S10 at launch, with the source claiming that they do not arrive at "late Q2 early". [19659002] 10/12/18: An alleged prototype of the Galaxy S10 Plus has occurred offline, indicating that it could adopt a corner bracket. Posted by SlashLeaks (under), suggests that instead of a 20-esque cutout from Honor View, the flagship could adopt a chunky notch in the upper right corner to see what looks like a two- camera setup.

However, Evleaks does not agree that he wrote pictures over the weekend depicting three Galaxy S10 models with centrally placed "punch-hole" cutouts.

5/12/18: ] A mega leak with 91Mobiles and OnLeaks has given us a complete review of the Galaxy S10 Plus. Deliciously done by the flagship, showing the handset's on-screen display, quad camera layout, and Samsung's forward-facing camera cut-out, which appears to house two forward facing cameras to ease the company's enhanced face detection technology.

91Mobiles also confirm that the S10 Plus will pack a 6.4-inch double-curved edge AMOLED display, an ultrasonic fingerprint scanner similar to OnePlus 6T, and one 3.5 mm headphone jack next to the USB-C port. The handset measures 157.5 x 75.0 x 7.8 mm, according to the leakage, but will expand to 9 mm thanks to the outstanding rear camera layout.



According to a report by Hong Kong's GF Securities claiming that Samsung's incoming flagship will Be the first to pack 12GB of RAM; more than 10GB of RAM set to be filled in the McLaren edition OnePlus 6T.

Same report claims that Samsung will increase internal storage to 1TB; The kind of spec you usually find on a high-end laptop.

GF Securities does not tell us much else we do not already know but notice that the Galaxy S10 will be available in white, black, yellow and green versions, some of which will be Huawei-a-like gradients. 19659002] 30/11/18: The Galaxy S10 + has been discovered at AnTuTu, which packs Samsung's recently announced Exynos 9820 processor.

Shown earlier this month is Samsung's next generation Exynos SoC its First to come with a neuron processing engine (NPU) on board, which means that AI-centric tasks can be performed on the chip itself. The company also shouted that the processor will offer a 20 percent increase in single-core performance compared to its predecessor, and a 40 percent improvement in efficiency.

At that time, Samsung did not say when we first saw its Exyos 9820 in nature, but a new reference result from AnTuTu suggests it's going to make its debut inside the Galaxy S10.

The reference, shared by Ice Universe ( under ), is allegedly for Exynos-powered version of the Galaxy S10 + kitted-out with 6GB RAM, 128GB of storage space. The device scored a respectable 325,076 on the reference platform, like the trumpet Huawei P20 Pros score of 273,295, but failed to match iPhone XS, which tops AnTuTu's ratings with a score of 352,405.

Galaxy S10 + will probably also start with Qualcomm's Snapdragon 855 chip in certain markets and this variant could topple Apple's flagship. A device running next-generation flagship SoC has been discovered on AnTuTu with a score of 362,292.

23/11/18: Galaxy S10 can completely eliminate details and will not adopt an iPhone-style notch if a leaked screen protector is to be believed.

The screen protector was leaked in a video shared by Ice Universe ( under ), and if legitimate, show that the luminaires on Samsung Galaxy S10 will be almost nonexistent.

It will not adopt a screenshot like the majority of new Android flagships, and despite recent rumors that the S10 will be among the first to have a "hole hole" selfie camera – adopt Samsung's begun "Infinity O" technology – there are no signs of the camera hole in this latest leak.

21/11/18: Samsung is prepping a variant of the Galaxy S10 with 5G support and six cameras, according to Wall Street Journal .

The newspaper, quoting "people familiar with the case", reports that Samsung plans to launch four variants of the Galaxy S10, including a 6.7in model – the code name Beyond X – that will support 5G and pack six cameras; two front and four around the back.

Emphasizes rumors of an MWC disclosure, WSJ notes that Samsung will uncover this model in mid February, but notes that the release will depend on the availability of 5G networks. It is unclear whether the model handset will make it Blighty, though; The report notes that Samsung is in talks with AT & T, T-Mobile and South Korean networks.

The other three Galaxy S10 models will not be as ridiculous as WSJ reports that they will offer screens between 5in and 5.4in and will offer between three and five cameras. However, the handsets can add a reverse wireless charging feature that allows the phones to wirelessly console other devices, similar to Huawei's Mate 20 Pro .

WSJ also has some info on Samsung's barely-bumped Galaxy F & # 39; smartphone, as it claims could start as "Galaxy Flex".

13/11/18: The incoming Samsung Galaxy S10 will contain both a selfie camera and fingerprint scanner built into the display.

At least, according to infamous tipster Evan Blass, who tweeted on Tuesday ( during ), the Galaxy S10 will be the first to have a "hole hole" selfie camera – adopt Samsung's beginner & # 39; Infinity O & # 39; display technology.

Instead of controversial notches, this screen will contain a small hole in the upper left corner that houses the camera in front.

If Blass's latest predictions are on the money, the Galaxy S10 will also be the first Samsung flagship that has a fingerprint scanner on display. This will be an ultrasound sensor, as found on OnePlus 6T and Huawei Mate 20 Pro.

In other places, the tweet adds to rumors that S10 will feature a rear-view triple camera setup and Samsung's new "One" UI served on top of Android Pie.

Samsung Galaxy S10 Series, which will include standard , plus size and budget models, are expected to launch their MWC debut next year, with a 5G model that follows in March.

27/10/18: Samsung will launch three Galaxy S10 models next year, according to a report on Bloomberg .

Backing up previous predictions by analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, Bloomberg sources say that the Galaxy S10 and S10 Plus will pack curved OLED display with "almost no bezel "and a built-in fingerprint sensor. There will be nothing, says the report, with the front camera visible and tucked under the screen.

Around the back, the S10 models will pack a Huawei-rivaling triple camera layout, and at the bottom it will not work a 3.5 mm headphone jack

Samsung also plans a "cheaper" variant of the S10, according to Bloomberg its sources that will not boast the curved edge that has been a hallmark of Samsung's phones since the Galaxy Note Edge in 2014. However, a fingerprint sensor may appear on the display "depending on the cost," adds the sources.

And on the basis of recent rumors from Korea, the report claims that the Galaxy S10 will be Samsung's first 5G compatible smartphone. The company is allegedly in talks with Verizon to launch a 5G version of the Galaxy S10 to the United States, but it is unclear that the model will be offered here in Blighty.

The report Bloomberg also wipes the prayers on Samsung's long-famed folding smartphone, the code name "Winner & # 39;". Despite speculation that the device can start at Samsung's Developer Conference next month, the company is still considering whether the device will move vertically or horizontally.

The device, tipped to appear like the Galaxy X, will not have a fingerprint scanner on the screen due to "technical difficulties |" but will provide users with an additional 4-digit screen that can be used when the phone is closed.

Samsung obviously did not mention the rumors, but said in a statement: "We are constantly developing our smartphone portfolio to give our customers new and exciting innovations and experiences. At this time, we have nothing to share about future devices. Please keep tuned. "

12/10/18: Galaxy S10 may be the latest Samsung flagship to keep the 3.5mm headphone jack.

So says ] ET News ] reporting that while the Galaxy S10 is likely to hold the gate, Samsung plans to remove the headphone jack on either Galaxy Note 10 or Galaxy S11. Instead, the company will rely on a combination of the phone's USC Type C port and a bundled headphone dongle, according to the report

ET News does not say why Samsung wants to get rid of the headphone jack, but wonder, like other manufacturers, the company will only save space for other parts.

3/10/18: A A new report has described the triple camera layout that Samsung will push on the Galaxy S10.

According to the report set by SamMobile Galaxy S10 will have the same 12MP f1.5 / 2.4 variable aperture as the Galaxy S10, alongside a "super wide angle" 16MP f / 1.9-l realize with 123-degree field of view and a 13MP f2.4 aperture.

The report notes that the wide-angle lens does not have optical image stabilization and autofocus.

This triple camera setup seems to work on the highest specific Galaxy S10 model, according to SamMobile. A "reasonable" model will contain a single camera lens, while the standard Galaxy S10 will have a dual camera layout.

24/8/18: Samsung's slip-up has suggested launching four different versions of the Galaxy S10.

According to XML files hidden in the company's Android 9.0 update, XDA Developers discovered the four devices are the code name "# 39;" above & # 39 ;, & # 39; beyond 1 & # 39 ;, & # 39; beyond 2 & # 39; and & # 39; beyond 2 5G & # 39 ;.

This emphasizes recent rumors that Samsung plans to launch a 5G variant of the S10. According to online mumbles, this model will pack almost identical specifications to the Galaxy S10 Plus (or "beyond 2"), but will contain multiple sensors to facilitate 5G commands.

While the leak does not tell us much about the devices, XDA notes that all four handsets are likely to start with the next Samsung or Qualcomm silicon (Exynos 9820 or Snapdragon 8150) while the 5G model is likely to pack either Qualcomms Snapdragon X50 or Samsung's own Exynos 5100 modem.

17/9/18: The Galaxy S10 can pack a 19: 9 aspect ratio according to leaked references.

HTML5test benchmarking tool published results from an SM-G405F running Android 9.0 Pai. Although it is not confirmed that this model number related to the Galaxy S10, SamMobile reports that the reference shows a resolution of 412 x 869 pixels, higher than the 412 x 846 pixel resolution listed for the Galaxy S9, indicating Mystical device will be with Samsung's S-Series flagship.

Although the listing does not tell us much, these figures suggest that the Galaxy S10 can pack a higher 19: 9 screen, unlike 18: 5.9 aspect ratio of the Galaxy S9. This is supported by recent rumors that the flagship will boast noticeably reduced furnishings relative to its predecessor.

These leaked reference marks come warm on the heels of DJ Koh, CEO of Samsung's mobile biz, and confirm that design changes to the Galaxy S10 will be "very significant".

Talking about Chinese media, Koh suggested that the company's 10th anniversary smartphone will be more than an incremental update – when the S9 was for S8 – the S10 puts itself in "amazing" new colors.

10/9/18: The Galaxy S10 will eventually be Samsung's "most expensive" smartphone yet, thanks to its 5G technology.

Thus, the Korean website The Bell The Bell ] reports that Samsung will release a 5G version of the Galaxy S10 that can make the iPhone XS look cheap. The report notes that the model, which will have the same specifications as the S10 Plus, will require "four to five more antennas" than the current 4G phones before concluding that "the price of the series may be the most expensive."

In addition to the additional 5G module and the high-end price tag, The Bell reports that the S10 model will have a 6.44in display and will together with the S10 Plus – the first S Series The smartphone arrives equipped with a dual camera on the front and a triple camera at the back.

The S10 Series, which was revealed next year's CES, could be released "before and after March 5, when domestic mobile operators launch the 5G service"

28/8/18: Samsung will equip all three Galaxy S10 models with a fingerprint sensor on the display, according to a report on Investor .

While previous reports had suggested that the "entry level" S10 model would miss the scanner, it is now reported that all three models will contain screen technology.

According to Investor the two high-end models will have an ultrasound display-based fingerprint sensor, while the entry level model will get an optical fingerprint sensor.

"The two high-end Galaxy S models come equipped with an ultrasonic fingerprint scanner, while the other will house an optical fingerprint sensor under the screen," an official from the display industry said.

The ultrasound sensor, which is likely to be delivered by Qualcomm, will create 3D mapped fingerprints to scan a user's digit, making it more accurate than traditional scanners. It is not affected by fat, sweat or light, according to the report.

The optical sensor, which will be "three times cheaper" than the ultrasound option, acts as a digital camera captures a two-dimensional image of a fingerprint. It's not as accurate as the scanner is set to debut on the two high-end S10 models, and will fight to scan your fingers if they are dirty, too wet or too dry, or if external lights get lost.

25/7/18: Samsung has allegedly designed its own GPU that will execute a "brand new design" and could make its debut in the Galaxy S10.

The news, first destroyed by Graphic Speak and later confirmed by reliable tipster Ice Universe ( under ), claims that Samsung is developing an internal GPU that delivers "Lead Performance / Watt" in simulations.

GPU wants sports a whole new architecture that could make it work on all smartphones for supercomputers, according to an analyst informed about the work.

This is really a big deal – it's the first new 10-year GPU design, says Jon Peddie, Rector of Jon Peddie Research.

Samsung GPU could "put it in line with Apple," added Peddie. "This design is so good, they can distribute it on all platforms – it's a function of their ambition. If I owned it, it would be all, including cockpits and supercomputers."

The GPU, developed by Samsung's novice Dr. Chien-Ping Lu, a graphics veteran who previously worked with Nvidia and MediaTek, is expected to first appear in a Samsung Exynos smartphone processor – a sign that it could crumble in the company's 10th anniversary Galaxy S10.

The company has not decided whether it will license the technology, according to the report.

20/7/18: The Samsung Galaxy S10 will have significantly less objections than its S9 predecessor, according to recent rumors.

While the Galaxy S9 was quite a carbon copy of the Galaxy S8 before it, despite rumors that it would boast significantly less objections, it seems that Samsung has saved these major upgrades for its 10th anniversary Galaxy S release .

According to Twitter Tipster Ice Universe, the Galaxy S10's body shape display will be "greatly enhanced" compared with S9. There is no word of detail, but Samsung is likely to eliminate the lower part of the device to achieve a ratio of screen and body of around 90 percent.

Currently, the Galaxy S9 has a screen-to-body ratio of around 84 percent.

In a follow-up tweet, Ice Universe also suggests that the S10 will offer improvements in the battery department, saying: "If you use the more sophisticated packaging technology SLP, then the battery is definitely bigger than S9 and Samsung's president said he is working hard for to solve the cargo speed problem. "

18/7/17: Qualcomm has shown an early prototype of its ultrasonic fingerprint scanner that is expected to debut on the Galaxy S10.

According to Twitter tipster Ice Universe, Samsung will be among the first to work with Qualcomm's in-fingerprint scanning technology. He says that Samsung's CEO Dj Koh says the S10 will not adopt an optical fingerprint resolution because "optical fingerprints can lead to poor user experience."

Qualcomm ultrasound technology, tested by CNET "uses sound waves to generate a map of fingerprints, with the wave of pressure jumping off the contours on the skin yours. "

The technology, which spells the end of the physical home button, also provides a number of advantages over optical scanners, reports the report. It can scan a finger if it's wet, has a delay of only 250 milliseconds, boasts a percentage of rejection speed and is only 0.15mm in size, so it will not result in clumsy smartphones.

Qualcomm has confirmed that technology will start appearing in smartphones next spring.

17/7/18: Apple Guru Ming-Chi Kuo has woken his attention to Samsung and predicts that the Galaxy S10 comes in three sizes.

In a report of ] Business Insider Kuo says he expects the Galaxy S10 to be available in 5.8in, 6.1in and 6.4in models – almost identical to those sizes Kuo expects Apple's 2018 iPhones coming into.

Emphasizing Recent Rumors, Kuo expects the two major S10 models to include fingerprint sensors on the display, and the smaller model includes fingerprint sensors on the page.

Kuo adds that Samsung will "aggressively" promote fingerprint scanning on the screen – probably because it's a feature that Apple does not plan to include on its incoming iPhones.

Kuo anticipates Samsung to send 40 million Galaxy S10 phones next year, mostly the two major models – no doubt the Galaxy S10 and S10 Plus. Samsung can also send 14 million to 16 million Galaxy Note 10 phones next year, according to the report.

10/7/18: Samsung's Galaxy S10 Plus will be equipped with five ( five! ) cameras, The Bell reports.

Samsung plans to plan three Galaxy S10 models in 2019, with earlier rumors that the highest specification Galaxy S10 Plus will include a P20 Pro-rivaling triple lens rear camera layout, like Apple's incoming iPhone X Plus.

Korean website The Bell now reports that the S9 Plus sequel also wants a dual-camera setup on the front, probably to enable face scanning technology like Apple's face ID. Earlier rumors claimed that Samsung's light-faded iris scanner will be replaced by a 3D sensing camera on next year's S10 setup.

The report also contains some more information about the S10 Plus rumored triple lens setup, which allegedly includes a wide-angle lens, a telephoto lens and a new 16WW, 120-degree ultra wide-angle lens.

The models Galaxy S10 (Code Name & # 39; Beyond 1 & # 39;) and Input Level (& # 39; Beyond 0 & # 39;) models are not expected to offer such high-end camera credentials, though. The S10 will offer the same tri-camera setup on the backside, but only one on the front, according to the report, while & # 39; Beyond 0 & # 39; comes with a standard two cameras – one on the front and one at the back.

9/7/18: Samsung is planning a "budget" version of the Galaxy S10 that will not contain a fingerprint scanner in display, according to The Bell .

Emphasize previous rumors ( during ), the Korean website reports that Samsung is developing three variants of the Galaxy S10, the code name "Beyond 0 & # 39; Beyond 1 & # 39; Beyond 1 & # 39; ; and & # 39; Beyond 2 & # 39 ;. [19659002] The Bell states that while the latter two will be high end devices that will contain screen-based fingerprint sensors, Beyond 0 will be the first entry level device in Samsung's S Series. [19659002] This model will not contain a fingerprint scanner in the display, according to the report, and instead will show a side mounted sensor similar to the Moto Z3 Play and past Sony devices. If legitimate, this will be the first time Samsung adopts such a position for a fingerprint sensor, with The Bell notes that it is probably located along the right edge of the user's thumb.

The decision To exclude a fingerprint sensor on the display of the variant In addition to 0, it has been surprisingly made to reduce costs.

The S10 Series Fingerprint on Display, supplied by the chipmaker Qualcomm, costs $ 15 per module, according to the report – seven times more expensive than the $ 2 module currently featured on Samsung's flagship phones.

26/6/18: Samsung may plan to release three new Galaxy S10 devices next year, according to the Korean website ET News.

The report, citing "several industry departments involved in the development of the next Galaxy S Series", claims that Samsung plans to follow Apple's footsteps, which will also launch three new devices later this year.

The first device, the code name "Beyond 0 & # 39;" will allegedly have a 5.8-inch screen and a lens camera setup, just like the current Galaxy S9. This will be merged with "Beyond 1", which also wants a 5.8-inch screen, but the sport will upgrade two camera layouts.

Claims & # 39; Beyond 2 & # 39 ;, ET News will pack a larger 6.2in ​​screen, and probably come as the Galaxy S10 Plus. It will also play a triple camera similar to what has been seen on the Huawei P20 Pro if the report is to be believed.

ET News has nothing much to say about the trio of incoming S10 models, but notes that Samsung is not yet ready to launch its first foldable smartphone – Galaxy X – and is "rushing to develop it ". According to recent rumors, it comes to next year's MWC, with the S10 set to launch a month earlier on CES.

25/6/18: Samsung Galaxy S10 will allegedly dike the iris scanner for an Apple-style Face ID & # 39; sensor.

According to a report from the South Korean website The Bell who has heard from independent sources, the Galaxy S10 will adopt a 3D sensing camera on the cover that replaces the current, easily fooled iris scanner.

This will not be the only form of authentication on the device, as the report claims that Samsung will also equip the S10 with a fingerprint sensor on the display. This, The Bell claims, is being developed by Qualcomm, Synaptics and Taiwan's technology institute, although the report shows that Samsung can "revise its strategy" if technology is not ready in time for the smartphone's rumors January launch.

The report does not give much else but notes that – like the company's previous releases – there are two variants: 58in Galaxy S10 and 6.3in Galaxy S10 Plus.

21/6/18: An alleged prototype of the Samsung Galaxy S10 shows that the flagship could adopt an iPhone X school lock on the whole screen.

A prototype image was posted on Twitter by the infamous tipster Ice Universe ( under ). While not specifically mentioning the Galaxy S10, his use of the word "beyond" – assumed to be the code name for Samsung's forthcoming flagship – all but gives away.

The practical picture shows that the Galaxy S10, if legitimate, could adopt a full screen design that looks like on Oppo Find X – which would give it a 93 percent ratio of monitor and body, up from the 83.6 percent ratio of the Galaxy S8 and S9.

Like Oppo Find X, there are no signs of a camera facing forward – or some sensors – on the front of the device, which indicates that Samsung could be next in line to receive a popup camera in front of an iPhone X-style notch. Earlier this month, we heard that Samsung could avoid adopting a screen clip by equipping S10 with futuristic, sound-display display technology.

Before you get the hope, we find it hard to believe that the so-called prototypes show a legitimate image of the Samsung 2018 flagship given that the launch of the flagship is at least six months away. 19659002] According to recent rumors ( during ), the Galaxy S10 will probably make its first official appearance on next year's CES in Las Vegas.

14/6/18: Samsung will avoid signing into next year's Galaxy S10 by adopting futuristic, sound-display display technology, says ETNews .

Den koreanske publikasjonen rapporterer at Samsung, sammen med LG, klarer seg til å debutere "lydavgivende skjermer" på sine smarttelefoner som starter neste år, etter å ha tidligere vist prototyper av teknologien på SID-eksponeringen i forrige måned.

This display tech will allow sound through to be emitted through a phone's screen, removing the need for a front-facing earpiece and, in turn, an iPhone X-style display cutout. This means that Samsung, if it was to adopt a pop-up selfie camera like the recently-announced Vivo Nex, could push the screen on the S10 all the way to the top edge of the device.

16/5/18: Samsung is reportedly planning to equip next year's Galaxy S10 with a ridiculously-sharp display that'll blow the iPhone X out of the water.

According to Twitter tipster Ice Universe, the Galaxy S10's screen resolution is going to exceed 600ppi – trumping the iPhone X's 458ppi and the Galaxy S9's 570ppi screen.

It remains to be seen the display will match the eye-popping brightness of the Sony Xperia XZ Premium, though, which packs a 5.8in 3840×2160 4K screen with a pixel density of 760ppi.

As well as a souped-up screen resolution, the Galaxy S10 is also expected to feature a screen to body ratio of 93 per cent – improving on the Galaxy S9's 83.6 per cent ratio. 

Further, it's looking, it's looking increasingly likely that the Galaxy S10 will the first Samsung's phone to feature an in-screen fingerprint reader after Ice Universe tweeted that the ultrasonic tech won't make it to the Samsung Galaxy Note 9. 

"It is almost certain that Note9 has no FOD [Fingerprint-reader On Display]", read the tweet. 

4/5/18: Rumours claim Samsung will launch its Galaxy S10 flagship in January 2018, with plans to launch its long-awaited foldable smartphone at MWC in February. 

Korean newspaper The Bellnaturally, reports that the Samsung Galaxy S10 is likely to see an official unveiling at CES in January, with the "procurement of parts" to begin in October.

While this isn't the first time we've heard that Samsung might launch its next flagship smartphone ahead of schedule, this rumour has a bit more meat. The Bell claims that the S10's launch has been pushed forward to make room for its long-rumoured foldable 'Galaxy X' smartphone.

Samsung has reportedly asked suppliers to start supplying component for the smartphone this November, with plans to unveil the handset at MWC. 

The so-called Galaxy X will feature a"fold-in structure", The Bell notes, comprising three 3.5in OLED panels. The front of the product will reportedly be equipped with two 3.5in panels to create a 7in screen, with an additional 3.5in display on the rear. 

3/5/18: Samsung's Galaxy S10 is codenamed "Beyond" and will be the first to feature a screen-embedded fingerprint sensor, according to Korean news outlet The Bell

Citing the "parts industry" as its source, the website claims that Samsung's 'Beyond' codename is fitting for the firm's 10th-anniversary flagship, with the firm aiming to "go beyond" what it has already achieved in the smartphone market. 

To do that, the Galaxy S10 will be the first Samsung smartphone to be kitted out with Fingerprint on Display (FOD) tech, according to the report, which notes that the firm has attempted to introduce the feature since the Galaxy S8 but failed due to "technical difficulties".

Samsung will manage to embed a fingerprint sensor into the Galaxy S10's AMOLED screen, The Bell claims, although it's unclear who will be providing the firm with the futuristic tech.  

It is not currently known if the Galaxy S10 will also feature iPhone X-a-like 3D sensing technology on the front. 

"Unlike FOD, partners in the 3D sensing module are not detecting mass-production movements," one electronics industry official said.

18/4/18: The Galaxy S9 may be just weeks-old, but Samsung has reportedly finalised the design of next year's Galaxy S10.

So says Korean website The Bellwhich claims that Samsung's 10th-anniversary Galaxy S series phones will arrive early next year equipped with an in-display fingerprint scanner and a 3D sensing camera, similar to that found on the iPhone X.

The handset's under-screen fingerprint sensor, the report claims, is currently being developed by Qualcomm and Synaptics in the US, and Aegis Tech in Taiwan. The Galaxy S10 and S10+ will likely be the first Samsung smartphones to come equipped with the tech, with recent reports noting that, despite earlier rumours, the Galaxy Note 9 is unlikely to carry the feature.  

The Galaxy S10's rumoured 3D-sensing module is being developed by camera firms Mantis Vision and Woodgate, The Bell notes. Further details about this feature remain vague, but it likely will offer iPhone X-style face-unlock functionality, improving on Samsung's current, and somewhat lacklustre iris-scanning solution. 

Elsewhere, the Korean report debunks speculation that the Galaxy S10 will feature the foldable AMOLED screen that we've heard so much about, and instead claims that Samsung will stick to same curved Infinity displays found on this year's S9 and S9+. 

The screens are allegedly getting bigger, though, with the S10 and S10 Plus tipped to feature 5.8in and 6.3in panels, respectively, 0.03in and 0.08in larger than their predecessors.

That's all The Bell has to give, but an earlier report claimed that – somewhat unsurprisingly – the Galaxy S10 and S10+ will be powered by Samsung's as-yet-unannounced Exynos 9820 SoC, that's expected to debut inside the Galaxy Note 9. 

Samsung's Exynos variants are typically released in Europe, with Qualcomm's next-gen Snapdragon 855 processor set to power its US-bound version. 

Samsung, naturally, hasn't commented on the rumours. µ
