So far, the rumor mill has revealed the design of the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S10+, Galaxy S10, and Galaxy S10 E through renders and leaked photos. Now, smartphone accessory retailer named MobileFun has shared a short hands-on video of the Galaxy S10+ to reveal its appearance in real.

The leaked hands-on video reveals that the Galaxy S10+ is a tall device that fits comfortably in users’ hand. There is a screen protector with two cutouts are placed over the display of the phone. The first one is a pill-shaped cutout at the top-right corner for the dual front-facing cameras.

There is a bigger round-shaped cutout at the bottom portion of the screen for the ultrasonic in-display fingerprint scanner. This indicates that the Galaxy S10’s screen protector will also have similar cutouts for the front-facing camera and in-screen fingerprint reader. Some early rumors had claimed that the screen fingerprint sensor may not work with general screen protectors.

There is a possibility that it could just be a plastic film that comes on the Galaxy S10 and Galaxy S10+ out of the box to highlight the front camera and in-display fingerprint sensor. The above video also reveals that the AMOLED display of the Galaxy S10+ is curved towards the left and right edges. The side bezels are almost absent while the upper and lower bezels are quite thin.
