Photos of the anticipated cheaper model of the Samsung Galaxy S10 have also been leaked on Weibo. The device is booted up, and the words Samsung Galaxy S10e are seen flashing on the screen, tipping its name. This suggests that the variant will be called the Samsung Galaxy S10e and not Samsung Galaxy S10 Lite or Samsung Galaxy S10E. The photos also show how the screen will look with the Infinity-O Display and the selfie camera placed inside a cut-out on the top right edge of the screen.
Separately, NBTC certification agency has also certified the SM-G970F/DS, SM-G973F/DS, and SM-G975F/DS models and is calling it the Samsung Galaxy S10e, Samsung Galaxy S10, and Samsung Galaxy S10+ respectively. This further cements the moniker for the cheapest variant, finally putting an end to all the confusion. These listings were first spotted by MySmartPrice.
There’s also a separate report from Chinese media new.qq.com that suggests that the Samsung Galaxy S10e will have same front and back camera specs as the Samsung Galaxy Note 9. However, Samsung is said to upgrade its computational photography algorithms on the Galaxy S10e. The report also states that the two premium variants will come with front camera support for 4K video and optical image stabilisation (OIS).
The Samsung Galaxy S10 and Samsung Galaxy S10+ are also tipped to sport a triple camera setup, and the report suggests that the specs will be – one 12-megapixel main sensor, another 16-megapixel wide-angle sensor, and a last 13-megapixel telephoto sensor. At the back, the two phones will support GoPro-like electronic image stabilisation (EIS).
The Samsung Galaxy S10e is expected to sport a 5.8-inch display, a dual rear camera setup, and a side-mounted fingerprint scanner. The vanilla Samsung Galaxy S10 variant is expected to sport a 6.1-inch display and the Galaxy S10+ is expected to sport a large 6.4-inch display respectively. It’s only a matter of few days before Samsung reveals all the official details, and we’ll be at the event offering detailed coverage. Stay tuned.
