Pictures of real Samsung Galaxy S10, S10+ reveal all their design secrets


There’s been no shortage of Samsung Galaxy S10 and Galaxy SD10+ leaks over the past few weeks, but this is the first time that we’ve seen photos of what the final design of the two phones. Renders and blurry images have given us a good idea of what the two smartphones would look like, but this new collection of photos leaves no room for the imagination, revealing every last secret of the final design Samsung will be going with.

As you might expect the hole punch cutout in the displays on both phones are the most notable design changes when compared the Galaxy S9 variants from last year. The larger Samsung Galaxy S10+ features a double-wide cutout in its display in the top right corner which allows for its dual front-facing cameras to capture images without any obstruction. The regular Galaxy S10 has a hole punch cutout in the same corner, but since the phone only has a single camera up front, the hole punch cutout resembles that of the Honor View 20.

You’ll likely also notice that the curved edges of the display are a bit more subtle than they’ve been in the past. Every year, Samsung appears to be reducing the curve radius. They’ve likely realized that a display that curves over the edge of the phone isn’t as useful as they initially thought.

The frames on both devices appear to be metal with a glass back panel as we’ve seen on previous Samsung Galaxy devices. The photos show that both the Samsung Galaxy S10 and S10+ will have a triple camera module on the back which is flanked by an LED flash and the usual heart rate sensor that Samsung has been including on its flagship smartphone for years.

Noticeably missing on the back panel is the fingerprint sensor. The Samsung Galaxy S10 and its larger sibling are rumored to be the first devices to market with Qualcomm’s in-display, ultrasonic fingerprint sensor which should be a lot faster and more accurate than the in-display sensors we’ve seen on devices like the OnePlus 6T. And lastly, the Samsung Galaxy S10 and the S10+ are shown to have a 3.5mm headphone jack on the bottom edge, right next to the USB-C charging port and bottom speaker grill.

Needless to say, there’s a lot to be excited about with the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S10 smartphones. Samsung is expected to unveil its 2019 lineup at a launch event scheduled for February 20, but we’re sure that we’ll see at least another dozen leaks regarding new features, pricing and the official retail launch date between now and then.
