Samsung Galaxy S10 might follow on the footsteps of Apple iPhone XR and arrive in multiple color options next year. According to tipster OnLeaks, Samsung’s flagship smartphone will arrive in six finishes this year: Black, Grey, Blue, Red, Green and Yellow. In a tweet, OnLeaks claims that the Korean company has locked these six colors for the flagship device and they will also sport gradient finish similar to one offered by Huawei.

If rumors are anything to go by, Samsung is working on at least four models of Galaxy S10, that could debut at Mobile World Congress next year. A recent teardown of the framework from the leaked version of Samsung Experience based on Android Pie revealed that there will be four devices with one offering 5G support. The Galaxy S10 is believed to be codenamed beyond and the four models are internally referred to as “beyond 0”, “beyond 1”, “beyond 2” and “beyond 2 5G”.

The numbers following the codename beyond are acting as an indicator to what to expect from these models. The model codenamed “beyond 0” is expected to be the entry-level model with 5.8-inch OLED display. The model codenamed “beyond 1” could be a mid option while the model codenamed “beyond 2” could be the top-end version, varying between 4G and 5G connectivity option.

As in the past, the Galaxy S10 will be offered with Qualcomm processors in the US while rest of the market will get models powered by its Exynos chipset. The entry-level model is expected to feature a 5.8-inch display and single rear camera and is widely seen as Samsung’s challenger to Pixel 3 and iPhone XR.

The mid-option is also expected to feature a 5.8-inch display but offer dual rear camera setup. The high-end version is likely to sport a 6.44-inch display and feature triple rear camera setup with a telephoto lens and ultra wide-angle lens. There are reports of the base model offering a side-mounted fingerprint sensor and the premium version offering an in-display fingerprint sensor.

Samsung is also working on new display solution including one where the front camera can be drilled right into the glass panel and depth camera could be concealed behind the display. The Galaxy S10 marks tenth year of Samsung’s Galaxy S lineup and the Korean company is expected to make it a huge upgrade.
