Samsung is expected to host an event on Wednesday, February 20 to officially launch the Galaxy S10 variants. As time goes by, loyal Samsung fans are getting more information about the devices. Just in, another leak has been circulating online as a fresh set of hands-on images have essentially confirmed the use of an in-display fingerprint sensor on the Galaxy S10. Apart from that, the set of images give us new looks at the hardware and confirm further details.
The series of leaked images of Samsung S10 has been posted by SaudiAndroid on Twitter (via SamMobile). The publication shares four new hands-on images of the Galaxy S10 and S10+ confirm a lot of previous leaks and reports. One of the images of Samsung S10 gives fans the first look at how the in-display fingerprint sensor will be implemented. In the previous leaks, Samsung is said to adopt an ultrasonic fingerprint sensor on its upcoming device.
With the recent leaks, it only confirms that an in-display sensor is being used. The leaked images of Samsung S10 gives fans another nice look at the size of the hole-punch display cutout on both the S10+ and the S10. It also shows the back of each device, in which apparently reveal that both variants have three cameras mounted horizontally, and there are the "Prism Black" and "Prism White" color variants. Apparently, there's no fingerprint sensor on the back of the Galaxy S10 unlike what we see on S9.
Recently, the known tipster, Evan Blass posted images of S10 revealing the same three-camera layout, but with slightly different coloring. The image shows that the variant seems to have a gold accent for the metal. Roland Quandt of WinFuture has also recently posted a fresh set of Galaxy S10 renders. This batch of images show the S10 and S10+ from different angles in high quality, and the variants sport the Prism Black and Ceramic Black versions of the device.
Quandt's leaked images of Samsung S10 variants support the rumors that 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.
