A new leak thanks to Eval Blass (below) has exposed the back of the "pearl-white" Galaxy S10 model. In addition to confirming the snow-covered color setting, the leak also shows the handset's protruding rear-mounted camera, which appears to pack three lenses along with a flash.

05/02/19: Galaxy S10 could be one of the first devices that support WiFi 6, according to FCC archives spotted by Droid-Life. The whole thing confirms that Samsung's smartphone trio will make use of the WiFi 6-clear Qualcomm's Snapdragon 855 processor, which means that S10, S10 + and S10e will offer support for faster and more efficient WiFi connectivity. However, you need to use a WiFi 6 router to take advantage of this.

04/02/19: With only two weeks to go until the official launch of the Galaxy S10, a huge leak has revealed the lineup's full specifications and pricing information.

Leakage that comes with the kindness of Twitter user @ ishanagarwal24 and MySmartPrice, claims that the S10 setup will consist of Galaxy S10, S10e and S10 + if the latter could pack a large 12GB RAM and 1TB storage. However, this configuration will cost you with its price tag attached to € 1,499.

According to the leak, S10 will be available in 6 GB + 128 GB and 8 GB + 512 GB configurations, respectively, priced at € 899 and € 1149 respectively. S10e, later called S10 low, packs 6GB RAM, 128GB storage and carries one price of € 749, depending on the leak.

The expensive 12GB + 1TB variant will apparently be offered in the & # 39; Ceramic Black & # 39; and & # 39; Ceramic White & # 39; variants.

02/01/19: An official look of the Galaxy S10 + has left little to the imagination, confirming the handset's extended hole punch and triple-lens rear camera setup. The picture (below), via 91Mobiles s "reliable source" also shows no sign of a physical fingerprint sensor, but even more concrete signs that the handset will adopt an in-display sensor.

01/31/19: The 5G variant of the Galaxy S10 will not be ready to ship on launch, Korean website investor reports.

A vendor told the company that the mass production of the Galaxy S10 began on January 25, but this includes only 4G models, rather than those running on 5G networks. Instead, the report claims that the production of the 5G Galaxy S10 variant will begin "later in the first half of 2019".

The report also shows that all S10 models have a fingerprint sensor set on the display and debut earlier speculation that the cheaper & # 39; S10 Lite & # 39; would have a side mounted sensor.

"All three S10 smartphones need to include a fingerprint sensor under the screen so users can identify more conveniently than before," the source says.

In other cases, the report reports back earlier rumors that the S10 series has three lens cameras, pre-installed screen protectors and up to 1TB storage.

01/29/19: Samsung has long been accused of copying Apple, but now it looks like it will be aware of Huawei with plans to equip Galaxy S10 with reverse wireless charging. Backing up a previous prediction from serial leaver Evan Blass, TechTastic reports that all four S10 models will offer the feature, called "Powershare", which allows users to charge other gadgets via direct back-to-back contact with smartphone.

01/23/19: Italian website Android Tutto has revealed price information for Samsung's incoming Galaxy S10 lineup. According to the website, the lowest spec model – the Galaxy S10E – will be sold at € 779 (£ 680), and comes in a single variant with 6 GB of RAM and 128 GB of storage.

The regular S10 downloads € 929 (£ 810) for the 6GB / 128GB model and € 1179 (£ 1,030) for the 8GB / 512GB variant. And the same S10 + storage configurations will cost € 1049 (£ 920) and € 1299 (£ 1135).

Samsung's highest spec S10 model – S10 Plus with 12GB of RAM and 1TB of storage – will cost an eye-catching € 1599 (£ 1,400).

This matches, almost perfectly, with a previous leak from Gizmodo UK, which claimed that the S10E would cost $ 699, S10 from $ 799 to $ 990, and S10 + from $ 99 to a purse.

01/22/19: With just a few weeks before Samsung's official disclosure, the Galaxy S10 lineup has leaked in its entirety. Series tip Evan Blass published a picture of the smartphone trio (below), which he claims will be officially known as Galaxy S10, S10 + and S10E – the latter probably a reference to Samsung's long rumors & # 39; Little & # 39; fashion.

The official image showing cases from accessory manufacturer Speck seems to confirm the phone's & # 39; & # 39; Infinity-O & # 39; screens, with S10 and S10E sporting a single hole, and S10 Plus a larger, elongated cutout for the housing its dual forward-facing cameras.

01/21/19: We have already seen the Snapdragon-powered S10 + crop on Geekbench (below), and now Samsung's UK-bound Exynos-powered Galaxy S10 has spoken.

The handset runs Samsung's home-run Exynos 9820 SoC paired with 6GB of RAM, and it's a similar story to before. Although it exceeds the Snapdragon 855 variant with a score of 4382 compared to a score of 3413, both are not connected to the single-core performance of the A12 Bionic-powered iPhone XS line, which rises to a score of 4797.

06/01/19: The Galaxy S10 + has made an early appearance on Geekbench prior to its disclosure on February 20th. The handset, which contains the model number SM-G975U, will pair a Snapdragon 855 SoC with 6 GB of RAM, according to the list, contradicting earlier rumors that the smartphone could transmit with as much as 10 GB or 12 GB of RAM. Or it could be that only the lowest spec base model was given an early test.

The alleged Galaxy S10 Plus earned a single core score of 3,413 – falling slightly below Samsung's own Samsung Exynos 9810, and a multi-core score of 10,256, which trumps Huaweis Kirin 980 CPU. The tested handset was probably a device with non-final testing, so we wouldn't read too much in those numbers yet.

Posted by SlashLeaks (below), The image suggests that the flagship instead of a 20-esque cutout from Honor View could adopt a chunky notch in the upper right corner to house what resembles a dual camera setup.

05/12/18: A mega-leak courtesy of 91Mobiles and OnLeaks has given us a full review of the Galaxy S10 Plus. The leakage of the flagship show from the handset's close-up display, quad camera setup and Samsung's forward-facing camera cutout, which appears to accommodate two cameras facing forward to facilitate the company's enhanced face recognition technology.

91Mobiles also confirms that the S10 Plus will pack a 6.4-inch dual-swing AMOLED monitor, an on-screen ultrasonic fingerprint scanner similar to that seen on OnePlus 6T and a 3.5mm headphone jack with its USB-C port. The handset is measured at 157.5 x 75.0 x 7.8 mm according to leakage but will result in 9 mm thanks to its protruding rear camera setup.

At least one variant of the Samsung Galaxy S10 could pack a whopping 12 GB of RAM.

It is according to a report from Hong Kong GF Securities, Claiming that Samsung's incoming flagship will be the first to pack 12 GB of RAM; more than 10 GB of RAM set to be loaded into the McLaren Edition OnePlus 6T.

The 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 notes that the Galaxy S10 will be available in white, black, yellow and green versions, some of which will be Huawei-a-like gradients.

30/11/18: Galaxy S10 + has been spotted on AnTuTu, which packs Samsung's recently announced Exynos 9820 processor.

Shown-off earlier this month, Samsung's next-generation Exynos SoC is the first to come with a neuroprocessor (NPU) on board, meaning that AI-centric tasks can be performed on the chip itself. The company also boasted that the processor will offer a 20 percent boost 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 wanted to see its Exyos 9820 in the wild, but a new benchmark result from AnTuTu suggests that it will make its debut inside the Galaxy S10.

The reference, shared by Ice Universe (below), allegedly for the Exynos-powered version of Galaxy S10 + kitted-out with 6GB of RAM, 128GB of storage. The device scored a respectable 325,076 on the benchmarking platform, trumping the Huawei P20 Pro's score of 273,295, but failing to match the iPhone XS, which tops the AnTuTu's rankings with a score of 352,405.

Galaxy S10 + will probably also start with Qualcomm's Snapdragon 855 chip in some markets, and this variant may overturn Apple's flagship. A device running the next flagship SoC has been viewed on AnTuTu with a score of 362,292.

23/11/18: Galaxy S10 could remove wraps completely and will not adopt an iPhone style notch if a leaked screen protector is to be believed.

The screen protector was leaked into a video shared by Ice Universe (below), and if legit, show that the crews of the Samsung Galaxy S10 will be almost non-existent.

It will not adopt a screen cut as the majority of new Android flagships, and despite recent rumors that S10 would be among the first to provide a "hole-hole" selfie camera – adopt Samsung's recently teased & # 39; Infinity O & # 39; display technology – There is no sign 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, referring to "people familiar with the case," reports that Samsung is planning to launch four variants of the Galaxy S10, including a 6.7-inch model – codenamed Beyond X – that will support 5G and pack six cameras; two at the front and four at the back.

Adding rumors of an MWC disclosure, WSJ notes that Samsung will unveil this model in mid-February, but notes that its release depends on the availability of 5G networks. It is unclear whether the model handset will turn it into Blighty, though; the report notes that Samsung is negotiating with AT&T, T-Mobile and South Korean networks.

The other three Galaxy S10 models won't be so ridiculously speculated 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 handsets to wirelessly juice other devices similar Huawei's Mate 20 Pro.

WSJ also has some information about Samsung's barely-afflicted foldable & # 39; Galaxy F & # 39; smartphone that it claims could start as "Galaxy Flex".

13/11/18: The incoming one The Samsung Galaxy S10 has both a selfie camera and a fingerprint scanner embedded in its screen.

At least, according to the notorious tipster Evan Blass, who tweeted on Tuesday (below) that the Galaxy S10 will be the first to be a "holehole" selfie camera – adopt Samsung's recently teased & # 39; Infinity O & # 39; display technology.

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

If Blass's latest predictions are on the money, the Galaxy S10 will also be the first Samsung flagship to have a fingerprint scanner in the display. This will be an ultrasonic sensor available on OnePlus 6T and Huawei Mate 20 Pro.

Elsewhere, the tweet adds weight to previous rumors that S10 will have a triple camera setup on the back and Samsung's new & # 39; One & # 39; UI served on Android Pie.

Samsung's Galaxy S10 lineup – which supposedly includes standard, plus size and budget models – is expected to make its debut at MWC next year, with a 5G model following 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, Bloombergs sources say that the Galaxy S10 and S10 Plus will pack the curved OLED screen with "almost no bezel" and an embedded fingerprint sensor. There will be nothing the report claims, with the front camera visible and hidden under the screen.

Around the back, the S10 models pack a Huawei-level triple camera setup, and at the bottom there will be no 3.5mm headphone jack.

Samsung is also planning a "cheaper" variant of S10, according to Bloombergs sources that do not boast the curvy & # 39; screen that has been a hallmark of Samsung phones since the Galaxy Note Edge in 2014. However, a fingerprint sensor may appear in the display "depending on the cost" , the sources add.

And, based on the latest rumors from Korea, the report claims that the Galaxy S10 becomes Samsung's first 5G-compatible smartphone. The company is allegedly in negotiations with Verizon to launch a 5G version of the Galaxy S10 to the US, although it is unclear, the model will be offered here in Blighty.

The Bloomberg The report also wastes the prayers on Samsung's long rumored foldable smartphone, the code name & # 39; Winner & # 39 ;. In spite of speculation that the device could start at Samsung's developer conference next month, the company still does not assess whether the device will fold vertically or horizontally.

The device, which is tipped to arrive as Galaxy X, will not have a fingerprint scanner on the screen because of "technical difficulties | but will offer users an additional 4-inch screen that can be used when the phone is closed.

Of course, Samsung did not notice 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 present, we have nothing to share about future devices. Please keep tuned."

12/10/18: Galaxy S10 could be the last Samsung flagship to maintain the 3.5mm headphone jack.

Then says ET Newsreporting that while the Galaxy S10 is likely to hold the port, Samsung plans to remove the headphone jack from either the Galaxy Note 10 or Galaxy S11. Instead, the company will rely on a combination of the phone's USC Type-C port and a tied headphone dongle, according to the report.

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

03/10/18: A new report has described the triple camera setup that Samsung will push on the Galaxy S10.

According to the report, it is seen SamMobile, the Galaxy S10 will have the same 12MP f1.5 / 2.4 variable aperture lens as the Galaxy S10, along with a 16MP f / 1.9 super wide angle lens and a 123 degree field of view and a 13MP f2.4 aperture sensor.

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 special Galaxy S10 model, according to SamMobile. An "affordable" model will be equipped with a single camera lens, while the standard Galaxy S10 boasts a dual camera setup.

08/24/18: A slip-up by Samsung has suggested that it will launch four different versions of the Galaxy S10.

According to XML files stored inside the company's Android 9.0 update, spotted XDA-Developers, the four units are the code name & # 39; in addition to 0 & # 39 ;, & # 39; in addition to 1 & # 39 ;, & # 39; in addition to 2 & # 39; and & # 39; beyond 2 5G & # 39 ;.

This adds weight to the latest rumors that Samsung is planning to launch a 5G variant of S10. According to online murmurs, this model will pack almost identical specs to the Galaxy S10 Plus (or & # 39; beyond 2 & # 39;), but will have additional sensors to facilitate 5G comms.

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

09/17/18: The Galaxy S10 was able to pack a 19: 9 format view according to leaked benchmarks.

HTML5test benchmarking tool released results of an SM-G405F running Android 9.0 Pie. Although it is unconfirmed that this model number related to the Galaxy S10, SamMobile reports that the benchmark shows a resolution of 412 x 869 pixels, higher than the 412 x 846 pixel resolution specified for the Galaxy S9, suggesting that the mysterious device will join the Samsung flagship S series lineup.

While the listing does not tell us much else, these figures suggest that the Galaxy S10 could pack a higher 19: 9 display as opposed to the 18: 5.9 aspect ratio of the Galaxy S9. This is supported by recent rumors that the flagship will boast noticeably reduced crews over its predecessor.

These leaked benchmarks are warmly on the heels of DJ Koh, CEO of Samsung's mobile biz, confirming that design changes to the Galaxy S10 will be "very important".

In connection with Chinese media, Koh suggested that the company's 10th anniversary smartphone would be more than an incremental update – as S9 was for S8 – added S10 will be offered in "amazing" new colors.

09/10/18: The Galaxy S10 is said to be Samsung's "most expensive" smartphone yet, thanks to its added 5G tech.

Then say Korean website O'clockwho 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 S10 Plus, requires "four to five more antennas" than the current 4G handsets before concluding that "the price of the series may be the most expensive".

In addition to its added 5G modules and high-end price tag, O'clock reports that the S10 model has a 6.44-inch screen and will work with S10 Plus – the first S-series smartphone to come up with a dual camera on the front and a triple camera on the back.

The S10 series, which was unveiled at next year's CES, could be released "before and after March 5, when domestic mobile operators launch 5G service," the report notes.

08/28/18: Samsung will provide 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 have built-in technology.

According to investor, the two high-end models will supposedly have an ultrasonic display-based fingerprint sensor, while the entry-level model will have an optical fingerprint sensor.

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

The ultrasonic sensor, which is likely to be supplied by Qualcomm, will create 3D mapped fingerprints to scan a user's digits, 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 & # 39; than the ultrasound option, acts as a digital camera that captures a two-dimensional image of a fingerprint. It is not as precise as the scanner is set to debut on the two high-end S10 models and will struggle to scan fingers if they are dirty, too wet or too dry, or if external light gets in the way.

07/25/18: Samsung, by itself, prepares its own GPU, which will perform a "brand new design" and be able to make its debut in the Galaxy S10.

The news, first broken off Graphic speech and later confirmed by reliable tipster Ice Universe (below) claims that Samsung develops an internal GPU that delivers "leading performance / watt" in simulations.

The GPU will track a whole new architecture that could make it work in all smartphones for supercomputers, according to an analyst oriented to the work.

"This is really a big deal – it's the first new GPU design for 10 years," said Jon Peddie, director of Jon Peddie Research.

The Samsung GPU could "put it on an equal footing with Apple," added Peddie. "Dette design er så godt, de kunne installere det på alle platforme – det er en funktion af deres ambition. Hvis jeg ejede det, ville det være i alt inklusive cockpits og supercomputere."

GPU'en, udviklet af Samsungs nybegynder Dr. Chien-Ping Lu, en grafikveteran, der tidligere har arbejdet hos Nvidia og MediaTek, forventes først at blive vist i en Samsung Exynos smartphone processor – et tegn på, at det kunne optræde i firmaets 10-årsdag Galaxy S10.

Virksomheden har ikke besluttet, om det vil godkende teknologien, ifølge rapporten.

20/7/18: The Samsung Galaxy S10 will have significantly smaller bezels than its S9 predecessor, according to the latest rumours.

While the Galaxy S9 was pretty much a carbon copy of the Galaxy S8 before it, despite rumours that it would boast significantly smaller bezels, it looks like Samsung has been saving these big upgrades for its 10th anniversary Galaxy S release.

According to Twitter tipster Ice Universe, the Galaxy S10's screen to body ratio will be "greatly improved" compared to the S9. There's no word on specifics, but it's likely the Samsung will eliminate the bottom bezel on the device to achieve a screen to body ratio of around 90 per cent.

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

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 the S9, and the Samsung president said that he is working hard to solve the charging speed problem."

18/7/17: Qualcomm has shown off an early prototype of its ultrasonic fingerprint scanner that's 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-display fingerprint scanning technology. He quotes Samsung CEO Dj Koh as saying that the S10 won't adopt an optical fingerprinting solution because "optical fingerprinting can cause a bad user experience."

Qualcomm's ultrasonic tech, tested by CNET, "uses sound waves to generate a map of your fingerprint, with the wave of pressure bouncing off the contours of your skin."

The technology, which could spell the end of the physical home button, also offers a number of advantages over optical scanners, the report notes. It can scan a finger if it's wet, has a lag time of just 250 milliseconds, boasts a one per cent rejection rate and is measures in at just 0.15mm, so it won't result in chunky smartphones.

Qualcomm has confirmed that the tech will start showing up in smartphones next spring.

17/7/18: Apple guru Ming-Chi Kuo has turned his attention for Samsung and is predicting that the Galaxy S10 will come in three sizes.

In a report seen by Business Insider, Kuo says he expects the Galaxy S10 to be made available in 5.8in, 6.1in and 6.4in models – almost identical to the sizes that Kuo expects Apple's 2018 iPhones to come in.

Adding weight to recent rumours, Kuo expects the larger two S10 models to include in-display fingerprint sensors, and the smaller model to include a fingerprint sensor on the side.

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

Kuo predicts Samsung could ship 40 million Galaxy S10 phones next year, mostly the two larger models – no doubt the Galaxy S10 and S10 Plus. Samsung could also ship 14 million to 16 million Galaxy Note 10 phones next year, according to the report.

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

Samsung is reportedly planning three Galaxy S10 models for 2019, with earlier rumours claiming the highest-spec Galaxy S10 Plus will include a P20 Pro-rivalling triple-lens rear camera setup, much like Apple's incoming iPhone X Plus.

Korean website The Bell is now reporting that the S9 Plus successor will also feature a dual-camera setup on its front, likely to enable face-scanning tech similar to Apple's Face ID. Earlier rumours claimed Samsung's easily-fooled iris scanner will be replaced by a 3D-sensing camera on next year's S10 lineup.

The report also has some more information on the S10 Plus' rumoured triple-lens setup, which will allegedly comprise a wide-angle lens, a telephoto lens, and a new 16MP, 120-degree ultra wide-angle lens.

The standard Galaxy S10 (codenamed 'Beyond 1') and entry-level ('Beyond 0') models aren't expected to offer such high-end camera credentials, though. The S10 will offer the same tri-camera setup on the back but only one on the front, according to the report, while  'Beyond 0' will reportedly come with a standard two cameras – one on the front and one on the back.

9/7/18: Samsung is planning a 'budget' version of Galaxy S10 that won't feature an in-display fingerprint scanner, according to The Bell.

Adding weight to earlier rumours (under), the Korean website reports that Samsung is developing three variants of the Galaxy S10, codenamed 'Beyond 0', 'Beyond 1' and 'Beyond 2'.

The Bell states that while the latter two will be high-end devices that will feature screen-embedded fingerprint sensors, Beyond 0 will the first "entry-level" device in Samsung's S series lineup.

This model won't feature an in-display fingerprint scanner, according to the report, and will instead feature a side-mounted sensor similar to that seen on Moto Z3 Play and past Sony devices. If legit, this will be the first time that Samsung adopts such positioning for a fingerprint sensor, with The Bell noting that it's likely to be located along on the right edge of the user's thumb.

The decision to exclude an in-display fingerprint sensor on the Beyond 0 variant has been reportedly made, unsurprisingly, to cut costs.

The Fingerprint on Display (FOD) tech on the S10 series, set to be supplied by chipmaker Qualcomm, costs $15 per module, according to the report – seven times more expensive than the $2 module currently found on Samsung's flagship phones.

26/6/18: Samsung might be planning to release three new Galaxy S10 devices next year, according to Korean website ET News.

The report, which cites "multiple industry officials participating in the development of the next Galaxy S series", claims that Samsung is planning to follow in the footsteps of Apple, which will also allegedly launch three new devices later this year.

The first device, codenamed 'Beyond 0', will reportedly feature a 5.8in screen and a single-lens camera setup, much like the current Galaxy S9. This will be joined by the ‘Beyond 1', which will also feature a 5.8in screen but will sport an upgraded dual camera setup.

The 'Beyond 2', ET News claims, will pack a larger 6.2in screen,  and likely will arrive as the Galaxy S10 Plus. It'll also sport a triple-lens camera similar to that seen on the Huawei P20 Pro if the report is to be believed.

ET News doesn't have much else to say about the trio of incoming S10 models, but notes that Samsung is not yet ready to launch its first foldable smartphone – the Galaxy X – and is "rushing to develop it". According to recent rumours, it'll arrive at next year's MWC, with the S10 set to launch a month earlier at CES.

25/6/18: Samsung's Galaxy S10 will reportedly ditch the iris scanner in favour of an Apple-style 'Face ID' sensor.

So says a report from South Korean website The Bell, which has heard from unnamed sources that the Galaxy S10 will adopt a 3D-sensing camera on its front that will replace the current, easily-fooled iris scanner.

This won't be the only form of authentication on the device, as the report claims Samsung will also equip the S10 with an in-display fingerprint sensor. This, The Bell claims, is being developed by Qualcomm, Synaptics and the Taiwanese Institute of Technology, although the report notes that Samsung might "revise its strategy" should the tech not be ready in time for the smartphone's rumoured January launch.

The report doesn't give much else away, but does note that – like the firm's previous releases – there will be two variants: the 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-schooling all-screen design.

An image of the prototype was posted to Twitter by notorious tipster Ice Universe (under). While he doesn't specifically mention the Galaxy S10, his use of the word 'beyond' – believed to be the codename for Samsung's upcoming flagship – all but gives it away.

The hands-on picture shows that, if legit, the Galaxy S10 could adopt a full-screen design similar to that seen on the Oppo Find X – which would give it a 93 per cent-ish screen-to-body ratio, up from the 83.6 per cent ratio found on the Galaxy S8 and S9.

Like the Oppo Find X, there's no sign of a front-facing camera – or indeed any sensors – on the front of the device, suggesting that Samsung could be next in line to adopt a pop-up front-facing camera rather than an iPhone X-style notch. Earlier this month, we heard that Samsung might avoid adopting an display cutout by equipping the S10 with futuristic, sound-emitting display tech.

Before you get your hopes up, though we find it hard to believe that the so-called ‘prototype' shows gives a legitimate picture of the Samsung's 2018 flagship given that the launch of the flagship is at least six months away.

According to recent rumours (under), the Galaxy S10 is likely to make its first official appearance at next year's CES in Las Vegas.

14/6/18: Samsung will avoid sticking a notch on next year's Galaxy S10 by adopting to futuristic, sound-emitting display tech, says ETNews.

The Korean publication report that Samsung, along with LG, is gearing up to debut 'sound-emitting displays' on its smartphones starting next year, having previously shown off prototypes of the technology at the SID expo last month.

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 Bell, naturally, 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 Bell, which 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
