Leaks and reports regarding the Samsung Galaxy S10 series of smartphones are pouring in from all quarters. In one latest leak, tipster Evan Blass has shared an image on his twitter handle claiming that the phone in the image is the Samsung Galaxy S10 device with code name “Beyond 1”. The image shows a smartphone with curved display and a thin top bezel, chin. There is a punch-hole in the display (Infinity-O display) to incorporate a selfie camera.
In a follow-up tweet, Blass also claims that this model has a “one cool feature” that he hasn't heard being mentioned in any of the previous reports or leaks. He says that the phone could have an ability to wirelessly charge other compatible devices like handsets and watches that have wireless charging support. We have already seen this feature in the recently-launched Huawei Mate 20 Pro.
In another related news, a Dutch technology news platform claims that Samsung could launch five Galaxy S10 models. Till now, all the reports have claimed that Samsung would launch four device - three during the MWC in February and one later in the year, which is expected to support 5G connectivity. TechTastic claims that instead of one 5G supported variant, the South Korean giant could launch two models.
In its description of the two 5G models, the news portal names one variant as the Samsung Galaxy S10 5G and calls other as the Samsung Galaxy S10 Bolt. As seen in the table above (via GSMArena), there is no distinguishable feature or hardware between the two. There could be a difference in the RAM or charging capability but nothing concrete is known. The one thing which is seen common in all the devices is the Qualcomm Snapdragon 855/Exynos 9820 processor.
