Alleged Samsung Galaxy S10+ prototype spotted in testing at factory

Samsung Galaxy S10+ render based on CAD files
With almost three months still to go until its official announcement and just days after the smartphone leaked out in a 360-degree render video, what appears to be a prototype of the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S10+ has been spotted in testing at one of the company’s factories.
5G demo phone that Samsung showed off earlier this week, the prototype in question sports a rather odd-looking notch in the corner of the display. This time around, though, it actually houses two front-facing cameras. Additionally, this prototype sports significantly thinner bezels above and below the display that are likely indicative of the final size. When it comes to the side ones, though, these aren’t representative of the finished look. After all, Samsung is once again expected to use a curved edge panel.
Photos of the prototype’s rear unfortunately weren’t published online. But considering this particular unit is having its cameras tested, a quadruple-camera setup that is aligned horizontally is likely included.
The Samsung Galaxy S10+ should make its first official appearance in late February at MWC 2019. The smartphone is set to feature a 6.4-inch AMOLED display that is accompanied by one of two processors depending on the region – either Samsung’s own Exynos 9820 or Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 855. Regardless of this, 6GB of RAM is to be expected as well as 128GB of internal storage. Android 9 Pie complete with the One UI overlay will also come pre-installed while, in the battery department, a 4,000mAh cell is rumored.

Sure to be an amazing device (Samsung kills it every year sans Note 7), but I'm waiting on the Note 10. As good as the S10 will be, the Note 10 will be that much better.

not with that ugly side notch , super disappointing if true. wats the difference between this notch and a normal notch ? samsung just backtracking as usual, trying to differentiate its notch for marketing purposes. this is bad.

The side notch looks awful. I don't get it why Samsung are leaving their iconic design, even as a Mate 20 Pro owner, I still love the symmetrical design found on recent Samsung phones, they stand out in a market full of notched smartphones.

The screen wont wrap around the cut outs, its going to be a rectangular peice of the screen missing to the side, worse than the iphone notch

Very ugly! And no matter what they do, they can’t sell well flagships nowadays.
