Forget Galaxy S10 Lite, it’s Galaxy S10eInitially, tipsters used the Galaxy S10 Lite moniker for the most affordable smartphone from the upcoming trio of Galaxy S10 devices. Now, the ‘Galaxy S10e’ name has been confirmed as all the three smartphones have been certified by Thailand’s NBTC certification agency. The listing certified the phones with model numbers SM-G970F/DS, the SM-G973F/DS and the SM-G975F/DS. These correspond to the Galaxy S10e, Galaxy S10 and Galaxy S10+ models respectively.
A few images have also been leaked showing a dual camera setup on the Galaxy S10e. In one of the images, a phone with flat screen and punch-hole camera is seen displaying Galaxy S10e on the boot screen. Another image in the lot is seen having Samsung’s new OneUI which is built atop Android 9. The third image shows the phone kept against another phone with a notch that looks like an iPhone XR. In our rumour roundup recently, we mentioned that the Galaxy S10e seems to be Samsung’s iPhone XR counterpart.
Galaxy S10 and Galaxy S10+ in-display fingerprint sensorA Twitter user named SaudiAndroid had posted images of the Samsung Galaxy S10 and Galaxy S10+ showing off in-display fingerprint sensors. When we checked the link, the images were already removed, however, media outlets seemed to have already saved the images. One of these images show a phone with a locked-screen having an in-display fingerprint sensor at the bottom half of the device.
It has been widely reported that Samsung is adopting an ultrasonic fingerprint sensor on two of its upcoming devices. The images circulating on the internet show the Galaxy S10 and the plus variant in ‘Prism Black’ and ‘Prism White’ colours respectively. The Galaxy S10+ is seen having a in-display fingerprint sensor, and it has been reported that the Galaxy S10 will also have the same tech. Both the devices are also seen having a triple-camera setup on the back.
