Samsung is expected to launch three Galaxy S10 models next year, either at CES 2019 in January or at MWC 2018 in February. Out of the three, the base model will likely be a compact variant with 5.8-inch display, and feature a single rear camera among other features. With the Galaxy Note 9, Samsung upgraded the base storage variant from 64GB to 128GB, and according to a report on SamMobile, the same may not happen with the entry-level variant of Galaxy S10 model.
The report further claims that there will be a 128GB model too, but there is no word on whether or not Samsung will offer a 256GB variant, like the Galaxy S9. There is no word on the amount of RAM that the smartphone will pack. It is likely that Samsung may keep the RAM intact at 4GB, or may go and upgrade it to 6GB. There is also some conflict with the earlier report which hinted that the entry-level model will come with dual front and rear cameras. Ultimately what Samsung decides to go with remains to be seen, till then, take this information with a grain of salt.

Based on details that we have come across so far, the second Galaxy S10 model will come with 6.4-inch display and dual cameras at the back. The third will be a premium ‘Galaxy S10 Plus’ model with triple cameras at the back. Out of the three, one will be a 12-megapixel sensor with dual aperture lens, the other will be a 13-megapixel sensor with telephoto lens, and the third will be a 16-megapixel sensor with ultra-wide angle lens with field of view of 123 degrees.
Samsung is also expected to add an in-display fingerprint scanner on the premium models along with advanced 3D face recognition feature. Recently, Samsung also showcased an in-display front camera tech that would help the company to add an even bigger screen while retaining the same form factor. Lastly, there are also rumors that Samsung may switch from Lithium-Ion based batteries to graphene batteries which will allow for 45 percent more capacity, while also making them charge five times faster.
