If reports are anything to go by, Samsung is all set to host an event of February 20th to launch the Galaxy 10 which is a bit overpriced I guess. Interestingly, Samsung has been teasing the interested with leaks to help viewers learn more about the device and what it beholds. And keeping up with the teasing trend, today, a fresh set of hands-on images have essentially confirmed the use of an in-display fingerprint sensor on the Galaxy S10, as well as giving us new looks at the hardware while other leaks confirm further details.
First posted by SaudiAndroid on Twitter four new hands-on images of the Galaxy S10 and S10+ confirm a lot of previous leaks and reports. First and foremost, one of these images gives us our first look at how the in-display fingerprint sensor will be implemented and how it is going to work. It’s been widely known that Samsung has gone for an ultrasonic fingerprint sensor on its upcoming device, and this image confirms that an in-display sensor is being used. Unsurprisingly, it seems to work a lot like other devices using the tech and that too in a budget price segment.
Further, the hole punch display is hat everyone is talking about and the images spilling the beans give us a glimpse into the size of the hole-punch display cutout on both the S10+ and the S10, as well as seeing the back of each device. Both have three cameras mounted horizontally, and we can see the “Prism Black” and “Prism White” color variants here as well, and for obvious reasons, there’s no fingerprint sensor on the back of the Galaxy S10 as was found on the S9.
These leaks also align closely with a recent image posted by Evan Blass. There, we see the same three-camera layout, but with slightly different coloring. The device pictured there seems to have a gold accent for the metal. Whether or not that means we’re looking at a special variant remains to be seen, but personally I quite enjoy the color combination.
Also, the Galaxy S10 will apparently support reverse wireless charging, and the use case Samsung shows in a promo banner is for the company’s new Galaxy Buds. Also rumored to arrive at the Unpacked event, these new resembles Gear IconX which were launched last year. However, the Galaxy Buds are expected to get a branding upgrade and a wireless charging case. Excited?
