We are quite close to the launch of the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 phablet. But that isn’t stopping the leaks around next year’s Galaxy S10 flagship smartphone. Analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, known for his accurate leaks on Apple products, has now revealed some interesting tidbits about the Samsung Galaxy S10.

Kuo says that next year’s Samsung Galaxy S10 will be launched in three sizes – 5.8-inch, 6.1-inch, and 6.4-inch. This is in line with previous reports, which too have hinted at multiple Galaxy S10 variants. Incidentally, these are similar to the sizes Apple’s 2018 iPhones are expected to launch in. Having similar sizes will help Samsung take on Apple’s iPhones one-on-one.

Kuo further reveals the larger of the two Galaxy S10 variants will boast an in-display fingerprint sensor – a first for Samsung. This too isn’t the first time we have come across such a rumor. But the analyst reveals that the smallest Galaxy S10 model won’t get this feature. Instead, it will have to settle for a physical fingerprint sensor placed on the side, Business Insider reports. Kuo also says that Samsung will be focusing on the in-display feature when advertising how the Galaxy S10 is better than the iPhones.

Previous leaks have revealed that the top-end Galaxy S10 model could have as many as five cameras on board. These would include a Huawei P20 Pro-like triple camera setup at the back, and dual cameras up front. The less expensive variants would also get the triple-camera setup at the back, but only a single camera up front.

Another leak revealed that the Galaxy S10 would be powered by an Exynos 9820 octa-core SoC. Interestingly, the chipset is expected to be paired with ARM’s MALI-G76 GPU. This GPU, announced in May, promises 30 percent performance improvements and 30 percent energy efficiency over its predecessor.
