The Samsung smartphone series that we’ve been waiting for even before the launch of the Galaxy Note 9 is reportedly arriving at the Mobile World Congress in February 2019, still three months from now. But today may just be our lucky day: Assuming the images and video that have surfaced online are for real, then we already have a good look at the most premium of them all.
The Samsung Galaxy S10 Plus — which will supposedly be joined by the regular Galaxy S10 and the Galaxy S10 Lite in Barcelona, Spain — stars in 360-degree renders posted by well-known serial leaker Steve H. McFly, or @OnLeaks, as he’s known on Twitter.
The images and video below show a device with six cameras in total: four on the back and two on the front. The rear camera system — which is rumored to include standard, telephoto, and wide-angle lenses — is placed horizontally, just like the one on the latest Note. There’s no rear-mounted fingerprint sensor because apparently, the Galaxy S10 Plus’ fingerprint reader is built into the screen, and it’s ultrasonic.

The front is interesting because we can see an in-screen dual-camera setup. A Samsung phone that’s confirmed to come with a camera hole in the display — what the Korean company calls Infinity-O — is the Galaxy A8s, which will be launched on December 10, ahead of the Huawei Nova 4‘s December 12 unveiling.
The Samsung Galaxy S10 Plus’ screen is said to be a dual-curved-edge one and measures 6.4 inches. The upper and lower bezels are so thin; we guess the front panel boasts a screen-to-body ratio higher than 90 percent. The current title-holder of the highest ratio is the OPPO Find X at 93.4 percent.
Interestingly, the smartphone retains the 3.5mm headphone jack, which is flanked by a USB Type-C port and a speaker grille. You can also see the device’s volume and power keys, Bixby button, and SIM tray.
The top-end version of Samsung’s 10th-anniversary lineup is expected to come with either a Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 or Exynos 9820 chipset paired with up to 12GB of RAM. It could be available in a variant with 1TB of internal storage. And the Android 9 Pie OS will be layered with the company’s new One UI.
