The smartphone is said to be under development and internally being referred with the codename “Beyond”.

It’s not even been three months since Samsung unveiled its Galaxy S9 series of smartphones at the Mobile World Congress 2018 and now rumours of the company’s next year flagship, the Galaxy S10 have started circulating on the internet. It’s too early for any information to be considered reliable, but this new reveal comes via The Bell, as per which the company is developing the next Galaxy S flagship smartphone under the codename “Beyond”. Samsung does assign an internal moniker to devices that are in development, for example, the Samsung Galaxy S8 was codenamed “Dream”, whereas the Galaxy S9 was codenamed “Star”. 

As per another recent report from The Bell, the Galaxy S10 could continue with the Infinity Display design, which debuted with the Galaxy S8 smartphones and is said to feature an in-display fingerprint scanner, which is reportedly being developed by Qualcomm and Synaptic in the US and by Aegis Tech in Taiwan. The technology was previously seen on the Vivo Apex smartphone. Additionally, it is also tipped to feature 3D depth sensing capabilities on the front, rear, or both the camera modules, which is said to be under production in partnership with the firms Mantis Vision and Woodgate. The former is an Israeli camera solution company while the latter is a Korean camera module maker.

It’s still not known for sure, but it’s rumoured that the Samsung Galaxy Note 9, which will be launched later this year, could also come with an in-display fingerprint sensor. A previous report also tipped that the smartphone is being developed under the codename “Crown” sports the model number SM-N960U. It is speculated to be powered by the company’s Exynos 9810 in global markets and ship with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 in other regions.

The Samsung Galaxy Note 9 is speculated to feature a 6.4-inch Super AMOLED display with an 18.5:9 display aspect ratio, which is just 0.2-inch larger than the Galaxy S9+. It was also spotted on Geekbench and the listing suggests that it could feature 6GB RAM, which is again same as the Galaxy S9+. It will most likely launch running on Android 8.1 Oreo and is reported to pack a larger 4,000mAh battery. As mentioned above, the phone was rumoured to feature an in-display fingerprint sensor, but KGI analyst, Ming-Chi Kuo recently said that this won’t be the case and the phone will skip on it. So we will have to wait until it is officially announced to find this out.

The Galaxy Note 9 was spotted running on the Snapdragon 845 SoC in the Geekbench listing and in single-core and multi-core performance, the device scores 2190 and 8806, respectively. The scores are more or less in line with the Galaxy S9+ running on Snapdragon 845, which scored 2,390 in single-core test and 8,420 in multi-core test. However, in our tests, the Samsung Galaxy S9+ powered by the Exynos 9810 SoC scored higher numbers of 3769 and 8938 for single-core and multi-core performance respectively.
