One of the most anticipated smartphones of next year is undoubtedly the Samsung Galaxy S10. Next year will mark the launch of the tenth generation Galaxy S series smartphone from the South Korean manufacturer. The successor to the Galaxy S9 is expected to bring in several improvements, especially in in the camera and display departments. Many rumors point to changes in its selfie camera sensor being inside a hole in the display.
Yesterday, Samsung took the wraps off the processor that will power the new Samsung Galaxy S10 at a dedicated conference. Now online tipsters Ice Universe (@UniverseIce) and Roland Quandt (@rquandt) claim that there could be as many as three Galaxy S10 models launching next year. These models are likely to be called Samsung Galaxy S10, Galaxy S10+, and the Galaxy S10 Lite.
These three devices are said to carry model numbers SM-G970F, SM-G973F, and SM-G975F. As for the variants limited to the US market, they are codenamed G970U, G973U, and G975U. This again confirms that the upcoming smartphones will be powered by either the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon or Exynos 9820 processor depending upon the region.
Also, Samsung has their own Communcation Processor with 5G-NR in the works. Part of "Shannon" line and it'll probably end up in the Exynos-based #GalaxyS10, so inhouse solution seems to be preferred to QC SDX50. (kinda doubt they'd be able to combine Exynos 9820 w/ a QC 5G modem) https://t.co/eRpBaL3FPK

Samsung Galaxy S10 Lite is widely rumored to flaunt an “Infinity O” display with a cut-out for the camera sensor on the screen. The Galaxy S10 Lite is expected to feature up to 6GB RAM, up to 128GB storage, and is likely to be priced between $650-750 (approximately Rs 45,000-55,000). The Galaxy S10+ model, on the other hand, is rumored to debut with 5G network capability, and triple rear-camera setup.
There are still a few months left until the announcement of the smartphones, scheduled to happen during Mobile World Congress 2019, which will be in late February of next year. Until then, there is still time for various leaks and rumors, mainly on its specifications and visual characteristics.
