Samsung is widely expected to launch three models of the Galaxy S10 in February, 2019. There has been a lot of interesting reports regarding the design that Samsung is going for – from display cutout to four rear cameras. Earlier this week, the Galaxy S10+ was rendered as having four cameras on the back like the Galaxy A9 (2018). Now, we have a render of the regular Galaxy S10 (or perhaps the S10 Lite) with dual rear cameras.The render posted by tipster Ice Universe shows the back of the Galaxy S10 with a horizontal arrangement of cameras. Two sensors can be seen clearly along with an LED flash. This seems to suggest that we are looking at a “Lite” model of the Galaxy S10. This is because the regular Galaxy S10 has been rumoured to come with a triple camera system and recently this was spotted on some live images shared on Weibo. Meanwhile, the Galaxy S10+ model is said to come with four rear cameras horizontally arranged. Galaxy S10+ render with four rear camerasThe render of the Galaxy S10 and S10+ as well as the alleged live images spotted this week all seem to suggest that the upcoming flagship phones from Samsung will not sport a physical fingerprint sensor on the back. Instead, these phones will be equipped with an ultrasonic in-display fingerprint sensor, as per past reports. Alleged live image of Galaxy S10 with triple rear camerasAs for the display, all three models are expected to come with punch hole-style Infinity-O displays. The Lite and regular models will sport a tiny display cutout to house a single front cameras, while the Galaxy S10+ is rumoured to come with a pill-shaped cutout to house dual front cameras. So it seems the Galaxy S10+ will offer a total of six cameras (four on the back and two up front). Additionally, the Galaxy S10 Lite is said to come with a flat Infinity-O display while the other two models will offer curved screens.advertisementGalaxy S10+ benchmarked with Snapdragon 855 chipsetQualcomm announced its next-gen mobile flagship chipset this week, the Snapdragon 855. This will power most flagship phones in 2019 and naturally the Galaxy S10 will be one of them. This week, the Galaxy S10+ was benchmarked on AnTuTu with a SD855 chip. The results showed the Qualcomm chipset edging past the Exynos 9820 and Kirin 980 in CPU, GPU and AI performance.Of course, this does not indicate real-world performance and we can only know how the new SD855 chipset performs after a hands-on look. Consumers in India will most likely get the Exynos 9820 version of the Galaxy S10 next year.
