Samsung Galaxy S10 and Galaxy S10+ live images leak in crystal clear quality

Samsung Galaxy S10 and Galaxy S10+ live images leak in crystal clear quality
The floodgates are officially open, and Samsung’s highly anticipated Galaxy S10 lineup has been leaking like crazy over the past couple of weeks. Technically, the leaks started a long time ago, of course, but following several rounds of computer-generated renderings and illustrations, we finally get to check out the Galaxy S10 and S10+ in the flesh, revealing quirky stuff like blockchain storage support.

The latest real-world depiction of Samsung’s next flagship design comes from German blog AllAboutSamsung in the form of a handful of live pics showcasing seemingly advanced Galaxy S10 and Galaxy S10+ prototypes from different angles.

If you’ve been following the news, you probably won’t be shocked to see two new “Infinity Display” implementations with screen cutouts for a single front-facing camera on the “regular” S10 and a dual selfie setup as far as the plus-sized variant is concerned.

These relatively large holes, shaped as a circle and horizontal capsule respectively, are positioned in the top right corner of the two ultra-high-end devices instead of the top left placement of the Galaxy A8s “hole-punch” camera.


Speaking of cameras, while AllAboutSamsung has no new information on the specifications of the rear-facing imaging sensors, it’s interesting (although certainly not surprising) to see the Galaxy S10 and S10+ share triple lens arrangements. Keep in mind that the Galaxy S9 featured a single rear shooter, whereas the S9+ doubled down on the photographic equipment. Of course, this time around, there’s also a Lite or E version expected to come with a downgraded dual rear snapper situation.

Although drilling holes into the screens of the S10 and S10 Plus allowed Samsung to essentially eliminate the top bezel, a small but noticeable “chin” is still there at the bottom of both phones, looking significantly thicker than what various renders led us to expect. 

Otherwise, these two are pretty much what all tipsters and leakers said they would be. Namely, sleek giants with a whole lot of screen real estate in tow, clean-looking glass back covers, headphone jacks (thank God!), USB Type-C ports, and... what looks like unpolished software, with boot logos bound to change on commercial-ready units.

The OCD in me wants the top and bottom bezel exactly the same. Ughh.

It could partly be an optical illusion. The pictures here are taken at an angle that could be making the bottom bezel appear larger in contrast with the top than it really is. So while the bottom bezel may ultimately be larger than the top, it might be much closer than what's shown here...

I also don't like the rear camera module. I was never a fan of Samsung's rear sides but this one is greater offender than the S8 and S9.

Well its a good thing you be looking at the screen 99 percent of the time

I'm a designer, it's my job and now instinctive response to care about the entire object.

I too, am a designer - but the camera module actually looks quite fine on this one. I wouldn't say its a creative solution by any means, but at least its cohesive with the rest of the phone (shape).

You mean you'll be looking at 99% of the screen since at least 1 percent is taken up by THAT GIANT HOLE! :)

I guess we’ll get used to it overtime. But it just looks really stupid, especially with notification tray icons lined up next to it

Both looks Good! Lets hope the new Samsung new UI replacing the touchwiz will deliver! In this moment in time i think were already moved on from the headphone jack. Anyways good job Samsung! Looks good!

Touchwizz has been replaced since Galaxy S6 or S7 era, we on Samsung Experience at the moment. It's already very smooth hopefully One UI is good even though the new icons look like a child has designed them.

Good thing One UI on my s9+ is snappy. It sometimes surprises me.

S10+ is looking super weird with that dual display hole

Still there is chin. What would be the reason to buy this expensive beast. People won't be wowed by displays anymore, or updated spec.

Chin is not a problem. The real (and unique) problem in design of S10 are the holes in screen. Not cool.

If initial renders are to be believed, this chin is as much thick as iPhone XS, just that iPhone XS has evenly matched bezels all around & this one has very thin bezels at 3 sides & a chin at the bottom, so it is more prominent to look at.

Apple can round out the bezels and make them symmetrical because the side and top bezels are noticeably thicker than what most Android phones have.

Apple are forced to have that 4mm bezel all round, the thick stainless steel frame runs under the screen edge so they can't have a bezeless phone. They are forced into the bezel, it's not a design choice.

Every phone has a chin. The top and bottom bezel is the same size as the iphone x.

A beast with amazing design. When I watch videos on my phone 100% of the time I turn my phone counter clock wise to landscape mode. This would put the camera cutout in the upper left of the screen. When I get this beast I'll start turning my phone clockwise so that the cutout is in the bottom right instead. It will be less of a distraction from the viewing experience in my opinion.

Apex 2019 destroyed S10. Unbelievable design.

But that one is not coming anytime soon. I can make 100 renders like that. Still an awesome design though

It will be presented on MWC.

I love it, even though its bezeless, it still recognisable as a Samsung's phone thx to the curves screen. Still not a fan of the pill cut out but I'll get over it.

We have been watching this for several months already, but we have not seen any camera sample yet. This is more important.
