The higher specification models, the rumors suggest, may be the first to adopt Samsung's Infinity-O monitor, a fingerprint scanner on display and a triple camera, while the so-called "budget" model will offer buyers an affordable option. first time.

Following its inauguration, the Galaxy S10 will be available for pre-order immediately, before it goes on sale March 8.
According to a report in Gizmodo, The so called & # 39; budget & # 39; Galaxy S10 will offer 128 GB of storage and retail for 699 pounds, the regular S10 will offer storage of 128 GB or 512 GB for 799 pounds and 999 pounds respectively, and the S10 Plus will offer variants of 128GB, 512GB and 1TB costs £ 899, £ 1,099 and an eye of £ 1,399.

That all confirms, however, that Samsung's trio of smartphones will use Qualcomm's 855 Snapdragon processor, ready for WiFi 6, and should mean that the S10, S10 + and S10e will support WiFi connectivity faster and more efficiently. However, you will need a WiFi 6 router to take advantage of this.
4/2/19: With just two weeks left before the official launch of the Galaxy S10, a major leak revealed the full specifications and pricing details of the schedule.
The leak, which comes courtesy of Twitter user @ ishanagarwal24 and MySmartPrice, claims that the S10 line will be made up of the Galaxy S10, S10e and S10 +, the latter of which could have a robust storage of 12GB of RAM and 1TB. This setting will cost you, however, with its price tag set at € 1,499.

One vendor told the company that the mass production of the Galaxy S10 started on January 25, but that only includes 4G models, rather than those running on 5G networks. Instead, the report states, the production of the Galaxy S10 5G variant will begin "later during the first half of 2019".
The report also shows that all S10 models will have an on-screen fingerprint sensor – discrediting previous speculation that the cheaper & # 39; S10 Lite & # 39; would have a sensor mounted on the side.
"All three S10 smartphones will house a fingerprint sensor below the screen, allowing users to identify more conveniently than ever before," the source said.
Elsewhere, the report confirms previous rumors that the S10 line will feature triple-lens cameras, pre-installed screen protectors and storage of up to 1TB.

Samsung's highest specification model S10 – the S10 Plus with 12GB of RAM and 1TB of storage – will have cost € 1599 (£ 1,400).
This corresponds almost perfectly to an earlier leak from Gizmodo UK, which claimed that the S10E would cost 699 pounds, the S10 from 799 pounds to 990 pounds, and the S10 from 899 pounds to a 1,399 pound cart.

According The investor, the two high-end models will have a fingerprint sensor based on ultrasonic display, while the entry-level model will have an optical fingerprint sensor.
"Os dois modelos topo de linha do Galaxy S virão equipados com um scanner ultrassônico de impressões digitais na tela, enquanto o outro conterá um sensor de impressão digital embaixo da tela", disse um funcionário da indústria de exibição ao site.
O sensor ultrassônico, que provavelmente será fornecido pela Qualcomm, criará uma impressão digital mapeada em 3D para digitalizar os dígitos de um usuário, tornando-a mais precisa do que os scanners tradicionais. Não é afetado por graxa, suor ou luz, de acordo com o relatório.
O sensor óptico, que será "três vezes mais barato" do que a alternativa ultra-sônica, funciona como uma câmera digital, capturando uma imagem bidimensional de uma impressão digital. Ele não é tão preciso quanto o scanner que será lançado nos dois modelos topo de linha da S10, e terá dificuldades para digitalizar os dedos se estiverem sujos, muito úmidos ou muito secos, ou se luzes externas entrarem no caminho.

A GPU, desenvolvida pelo novato da Samsung, Dr. Chien-Ping Lu, um veterano gráfico que já trabalhou na Nvidia e na MediaTek, deve aparecer pela primeira vez em um processador Samsung Exynos – um sinal de que pode surgir no décimo aniversário da empresa. S10
The company has not decided whether it will license the technology, according to the report.
20/7/18: The Samsung Galaxy S10 will have significantly smaller bezels than its S9 predecessor, according to the latest rumours.
While the Galaxy S9 was pretty much a carbon copy of the Galaxy S8 before it, despite rumours that it would boast significantly smaller bezels, it looks like Samsung has been saving these big upgrades for its 10th anniversary Galaxy S release.
According to Twitter tipster Ice Universe, the Galaxy S10's screen to body ratio will be "greatly improved" compared to the S9. There's no word on specifics, but it's likely the Samsung will eliminate the bottom bezel on the device to achieve a screen to body ratio of around 90 per cent.

Currently, the Galaxy S9 has a screen-to-body ratio of around 84 per cent.
In a follow-up tweet, Ice Universe also suggests that the S10 will offer improvements in the battery department, saying: "If you use the more sophisticated packaging technology SLP, then the battery is definitely bigger than the S9, and the Samsung president said that he is working hard to solve the charging speed problem."
18/7/17: Qualcomm has shown off an early prototype of its ultrasonic fingerprint scanner that's expected to debut on the Galaxy S10.
According to Twitter tipster Ice Universe, Samsung will be among the first to work with Qualcomm's in-display fingerprint scanning technology. He quotes Samsung CEO Dj Koh as saying that the S10 won't adopt an optical fingerprinting solution because "optical fingerprinting can cause a bad user experience."
DJ Koh said that the Galaxy S10 does not use an optical fingerprinting solution because optical fingerprinting can cause a bad user experience. Otherwise, Samsung could adopt it two years ago. We will bring a better screen fingerprinting experience for S10.

Qualcomm's ultrasonic tech, tested by CNET, "uses sound waves to generate a map of your fingerprint, with the wave of pressure bouncing off the contours of your skin."
The technology, which could spell the end of the physical home button, also offers a number of advantages over optical scanners, the report notes. It can scan a finger if it's wet, has a lag time of just 250 milliseconds, boasts a one per cent rejection rate and is measures in at just 0.15mm, so it won't result in chunky smartphones.
Qualcomm has confirmed that the tech will start showing up in smartphones next spring.
17/7/18: Apple guru Ming-Chi Kuo has turned his attention for Samsung and is predicting that the Galaxy S10 will come in three sizes.
In a report seen by Business Insider, Kuo says he expects the Galaxy S10 to be made available in 5.8in, 6.1in and 6.4in models – almost identical to the sizes that Kuo expects Apple's 2018 iPhones to come in.
Adding weight to recent rumours, Kuo expects the larger two S10 models to include in-display fingerprint sensors, and the smaller model to include a fingerprint sensor on the side.
Kuo adds that Samsung will "aggressively" promote the on-screen fingerprint scanning – likely because it's a feature Apple's not planning to include on its incoming iPhones.
Kuo predicts Samsung could ship 40 million Galaxy S10 phones next year, mostly the two larger models – no doubt the Galaxy S10 and S10 Plus. Samsung could also ship 14 million to 16 million Galaxy Note 10 phones next year, according to the report.
10/7/18: Samsung's Galaxy S10 Plus will arrive kitted out with five (five!) cameras, The Bell reports.
Samsung is reportedly planning three Galaxy S10 models for 2019, with earlier rumours claiming the highest-spec Galaxy S10 Plus will include a P20 Pro-rivalling triple-lens rear camera setup, much like Apple's incoming iPhone X Plus.
Korean website The Bell is now reporting that the S9 Plus successor will also feature a dual-camera setup on its front, likely to enable face-scanning tech similar to Apple's Face ID. Earlier rumours claimed Samsung's easily-fooled iris scanner will be replaced by a 3D-sensing camera on next year's S10 lineup.
The report also has some more information on the S10 Plus' rumoured triple-lens setup, which will allegedly comprise a wide-angle lens, a telephoto lens, and a new 16MP, 120-degree ultra wide-angle lens.
The standard Galaxy S10 (codenamed 'Beyond 1') and entry-level ('Beyond 0') models aren't expected to offer such high-end camera credentials, though. The S10 will offer the same tri-camera setup on the back but only one on the front, according to the report, while 'Beyond 0' will reportedly come with a standard two cameras – one on the front and one on the back.
9/7/18: Samsung is planning a 'budget' version of Galaxy S10 that won't feature an in-display fingerprint scanner, according to The Bell.
Adding weight to earlier rumours (below), the Korean website reports that Samsung is developing three variants of the Galaxy S10, codenamed 'Beyond 0', 'Beyond 1' and 'Beyond 2'.
The Bell states that while the latter two will be high-end devices that will feature screen-embedded fingerprint sensors, Beyond 0 will the first "entry-level" device in Samsung's S series lineup.
This model won't feature an in-display fingerprint scanner, according to the report, and will instead feature a side-mounted sensor similar to that seen on Moto Z3 Play and past Sony devices. If legit, this will be the first time that Samsung adopts such positioning for a fingerprint sensor, with The Bell noting that it's likely to be located along on the right edge of the user's thumb.
The decision to exclude an in-display fingerprint sensor on the Beyond 0 variant has been reportedly made, unsurprisingly, to cut costs.
The Fingerprint on Display (FOD) tech on the S10 series, set to be supplied by chipmaker Qualcomm, costs $15 per module, according to the report – seven times more expensive than the $2 module currently found on Samsung's flagship phones.
26/6/18: Samsung might be planning to release three new Galaxy S10 devices next year, according to Korean website ET News.
The report, which cites "multiple industry officials participating in the development of the next Galaxy S series", claims that Samsung is planning to follow in the footsteps of Apple, which will also allegedly launch three new devices later this year.
The first device, codenamed 'Beyond 0', will reportedly feature a 5.8in screen and a single-lens camera setup, much like the current Galaxy S9. This will be joined by the ‘Beyond 1', which will also feature a 5.8in screen but will sport an upgraded dual camera setup.
The 'Beyond 2', ET News claims, will pack a larger 6.2in screen, and likely will arrive as the Galaxy S10 Plus. It'll also sport a triple-lens camera similar to that seen on the Huawei P20 Pro if the report is to be believed.
ET News doesn't have much else to say about the trio of incoming S10 models, but notes that Samsung is not yet ready to launch its first foldable smartphone – the Galaxy X – and is "rushing to develop it". According to recent rumours, it'll arrive at next year's MWC, with the S10 set to launch a month earlier at CES.
25/6/18: Samsung's Galaxy S10 will reportedly ditch the iris scanner in favour of an Apple-style 'Face ID' sensor.
So says a report from South Korean website The Bell, which has heard from unnamed sources that the Galaxy S10 will adopt a 3D-sensing camera on its front that will replace the current, easily-fooled iris scanner.
This won't be the only form of authentication on the device, as the report claims Samsung will also equip the S10 with an in-display fingerprint sensor. This, The Bell claims, is being developed by Qualcomm, Synaptics and the Taiwanese Institute of Technology, although the report notes that Samsung might "revise its strategy" should the tech not be ready in time for the smartphone's rumoured January launch.
The report doesn't give much else away, but does note that – like the firm's previous releases – there will be two variants: the 58in Galaxy S10 and 6.3in Galaxy S10 Plus.
21/6/18: An alleged prototype of the Samsung Galaxy S10 shows that the flagship could adopt an iPhone X-schooling all-screen design.
An image of the prototype was posted to Twitter by notorious tipster Ice Universe (below). While he doesn't specifically mention the Galaxy S10, his use of the word 'beyond' – believed to be the codename for Samsung's upcoming flagship – all but gives it away.
This may be a design beyond. pic.twitter.com/lViQUsW1Jv
— Ice universe (@UniverseIce) June 20, 2018
The hands-on picture shows that, if legit, the Galaxy S10 could adopt a full-screen design similar to that seen on the Oppo Find X – which would give it a 93 per cent-ish screen-to-body ratio, up from the 83.6 per cent ratio found on the Galaxy S8 and S9.
Like the Oppo Find X, there's no sign of a front-facing camera – or indeed any sensors – on the front of the device, suggesting that Samsung could be next in line to adopt a pop-up front-facing camera rather than an iPhone X-style notch. Earlier this month, we heard that Samsung might avoid adopting an display cutout by equipping the S10 with futuristic, sound-emitting display tech.
Before you get your hopes up, though we find it hard to believe that the so-called ‘prototype' shows gives a legitimate picture of the Samsung's 2018 flagship given that the launch of the flagship is at least six months away.
According to recent rumours (below), the Galaxy S10 is likely to make its first official appearance at next year's CES in Las Vegas.
14/6/18: Samsung will avoid sticking a notch on next year's Galaxy S10 by adopting to futuristic, sound-emitting display tech, says ETNews.
The Korean publication report that Samsung, along with LG, is gearing up to debut 'sound-emitting displays' on its smartphones starting next year, having previously shown off prototypes of the technology at the SID expo last month.
This display tech will allow sound through to be emitted through a phone's screen, removing the need for a front-facing earpiece and, in turn, an iPhone X-style display cutout. This means that Samsung, if it was to adopt a pop-up selfie camera like the recently-announced Vivo Nex, could push the screen on the S10 all the way to the top edge of the device.
16/5/18: Samsung is reportedly planning to equip next year's Galaxy S10 with a ridiculously-sharp display that'll blow the iPhone X out of the water.
According to Twitter tipster Ice Universe, the Galaxy S10's screen resolution is going to exceed 600ppi – trumping the iPhone X's 458ppi and the Galaxy S9's 570ppi screen.
Rumored that the screen resolution of the Galaxy S10 will exceed 600PPI
— Ice universe (@UniverseIce) May 14, 2018
It remains to be seen the display will match the eye-popping brightness of the Sony Xperia XZ Premium, though, which packs a 5.8in 3840×2160 4K screen with a pixel density of 760ppi.
As well as a souped-up screen resolution, the Galaxy S10 is also expected to feature a screen to body ratio of 93 per cent – improving on the Galaxy S9's 83.6 per cent ratio.
Further, it's looking, it's looking increasingly likely that the Galaxy S10 will the first Samsung's phone to feature an in-screen fingerprint reader after Ice Universe tweeted that the ultrasonic tech won't make it to the Samsung Galaxy Note 9.
"It is almost certain that Note9 has no FOD [Fingerprint-reader On Display]", read the tweet.
4/5/18: Rumours claim Samsung will launch its Galaxy S10 flagship in January 2018, with plans to launch its long-awaited foldable smartphone at MWC in February.
Korean newspaper The Bell, naturally, reports that the Samsung Galaxy S10 is likely to see an official unveiling at CES in January, with the "procurement of parts" to begin in October.
While this isn't the first time we've heard that Samsung might launch its next flagship smartphone ahead of schedule, this rumour has a bit more meat. The Bell claims that the S10's launch has been pushed forward to make room for its long-rumoured foldable 'Galaxy X' smartphone.
Samsung has reportedly asked suppliers to start supplying component for the smartphone this November, with plans to unveil the handset at MWC.
The so-called Galaxy X will feature a"fold-in structure", The Bell notes, comprising three 3.5in OLED panels. The front of the product will reportedly be equipped with two 3.5in panels to create a 7in screen, with an additional 3.5in display on the rear.
3/5/18: Samsung's Galaxy S10 is codenamed "Beyond" and will be the first to feature a screen-embedded fingerprint sensor, according to Korean news outlet The Bell.
Citing the "parts industry" as its source, the website claims that Samsung's 'Beyond' codename is fitting for the firm's 10th-anniversary flagship, with the firm aiming to "go beyond" what it has already achieved in the smartphone market.
To do that, the Galaxy S10 will be the first Samsung smartphone to be kitted out with Fingerprint on Display (FOD) tech, according to the report, which notes that the firm has attempted to introduce the feature since the Galaxy S8 but failed due to "technical difficulties".
Samsung will manage to embed a fingerprint sensor into the Galaxy S10's AMOLED screen, The Bell claims, although it's unclear who will be providing the firm with the futuristic tech.
It is not currently known if the Galaxy S10 will also feature iPhone X-a-like 3D sensing technology on the front.
"Unlike FOD, partners in the 3D sensing module are not detecting mass-production movements," one electronics industry official said.
18/4/18: The Galaxy S9 may be just weeks-old, but Samsung has reportedly finalised the design of next year's Galaxy S10.
So says Korean website The Bell, which claims that Samsung's 10th-anniversary Galaxy S series phones will arrive early next year equipped with an in-display fingerprint scanner and a 3D sensing camera, similar to that found on the iPhone X.
The handset's under-screen fingerprint sensor, the report claims, is currently being developed by Qualcomm and Synaptics in the US, and Aegis Tech in Taiwan. The Galaxy S10 and S10+ will likely be the first Samsung smartphones to come equipped with the tech, with recent reports noting that, despite earlier rumours, the Galaxy Note 9 is unlikely to carry the feature.
The Galaxy S10's rumoured 3D-sensing module is being developed by camera firms Mantis Vision and Woodgate, The Bell notes. Further details about this feature remain vague, but it likely will offer iPhone X-style face-unlock functionality, improving on Samsung's current, and somewhat lacklustre iris-scanning solution.
Elsewhere, the Korean report debunks speculation that the Galaxy S10 will feature the foldable AMOLED screen that we've heard so much about, and instead claims that Samsung will stick to same curved Infinity displays found on this year's S9 and S9+.
The screens are allegedly getting bigger, though, with the S10 and S10 Plus tipped to feature 5.8in and 6.3in panels, respectively, 0.03in and 0.08in larger than their predecessors.
That's all The Bell has to give, but an earlier report claimed that – somewhat unsurprisingly – the Galaxy S10 and S10+ will be powered by Samsung's as-yet-unannounced Exynos 9820 SoC, that's expected to debut inside the Galaxy Note 9.
Samsung's Exynos variants are typically released in Europe, with Qualcomm's next-gen Snapdragon 855 processor set to power its US-bound version.
Samsung, naturally, hasn't commented on the rumours. µ
