Samsung Galaxy S10 and Galaxy S10+ will be the next big smartphone to launch in the flagship segment. At the ongoing Qualcomm Snapdragon Summit, US wireless carrier AT&T confirmed that it will have two 5G enabled smartphones from Samsung early next year. The announcement did hint at the launch of Galaxy S10 and Galaxy S10+ at Mobile World Congress in February 2019.
The Galaxy S10 and Galaxy S10+ are no surprise and they have leaked multiple times in the past few weeks. There are reports that Samsung is working on a total of five models under the Galaxy S10 branding codenamed “Beyond” and will be a radical from Samsung’s current flagship lineup. Since the Galaxy S10 marks 10-year anniversary for Samsug’s flagship Galaxy S lineup, its mobile president DJ Koh has predicted that these smartphones will show how it plans to reshape the smartphone industry.

Samsung Galaxy S10+ was recently leaked in the form of renders which revealed its rumored quad camera setup. The leak also shows dual in-screen camera at the front of the device. Now, we have another leak pertaining to a Galaxy S10+ that only has a dual rear camera setup.
In the past, Samsung has used different camera setup to distinguish between its smartphones. So, it is likely that we are looking at Galaxy S10+ coming out in two variants: one with quad rear camera setup and another one with dual rear camera setup. The model with dual rear camera setup will be cheaper than the variant with single rear camera setup.
The leaks so far claim that there will be a 5.8-inch model, likely to be called the Galaxy S10, will come in two forms: a flat display design and a curved model. The Galaxy S10+ could arrive in 6.2-inch and 6.44-inch display sizes with the larger display model offering 5G connectivity and a total of six cameras. The base model is expected to come with a side-mounted fingerprint sensor while the premium model will include Qualcomm-designed in-display fingerprint sensor.

Alongside this leaked image of the Galaxy S10+, the smartphone has also stopped by benchmark to reveal the guts of Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 under the hood. The benchmark suggests that Snapdragon 855 inside the Galaxy S10+ will be faster than Kirin 980 powering Mate 20 Pro and Exynos 9820 likely to be used on Galaxy S10 models in Asian markets.
