[RUMOUR] Changing the ‘S’ moniker

The hype train started even before the launch of Galaxy S9! Tech24 claims out of the blue that S9 would be the last series to carry the ‘S’ moniker. Citing “a source from Korea”, the news suggested Samsung will choose ‘X’ instead to glorify the 10th anniversary of this iconic series of phones.

Publications like PhoneArena or SamMobile covered it quickly, but ultimately debunked it after finding the lack of proper citation.

Sunday, 4th


Eminent leaker Ice Universe / @UniverseIce set the benchmark high enough by speculating some of the key specs of the upcoming S10 series.

Updated Exynos SoC with dedicated neural processing unit (NPU) for AI support, UFS 3.0 memory, LPDDR5 RAM, a whopping screen-to-body ratio of 93% and a larger ‘L’ shaped battery can be expected. 5G compatible baseband and next-gen Infinity Display should be the cherry on top.

[NEWS][SPECULATION] Abandoning iris scanner in favour of in-display fingerprint and 3D sensor

The Bell finds out by asking the industry insiders that Samsung already stopped ordering the iris scanner module from its vendors. On the other hand, Qualcomm’s Fingerprint On Display (FOD) tech is on the verge of being commercialized.

Regarding the previously speculated 3D sensing tech, Mantis Vision of Israel and Samsung Electronics Institute of Technology are developing the algorithm required for the sensor. As a consequence, upcoming Galaxy S10 will probably ditch the iris scanner in favour of FoD and 3D sensor.

Monday, 25th

[NEWS] Three different camera configs, three different variants

etnews comes up with a detailed report about the possible variants of  Galaxy S10. For the first time since original Galaxy S, Samsung will opt for three different configs, primarily based on camera setup.

Ice Universe seconds the report, which talks about the following configs:

Wednesday, 27th

[OFFICIAL INFO][SPECULATION] ISOCELL Plus tech for enhanced colour accuracy and sharpness

Samsung introduces a new tech, dubbed as ISOCELL Plus, which allows CMOS image sensors to capture more light, significantly increasing light sensitivity and color fidelity.

According to the Korean giant, it offers up to a 15-percent enhancement in light sensitivity.Using ISOCELL Plus, it is possible to use smaller-sized pixels inside image sensors without any loss in performance.

The megapixel race is revived, as this tech also supports super-resolution cameras with over 20 megapixels. Without any doubt, this is going to be a key aspect of the S10 family.

[NEWS] Largest Galaxy so far – 6.44 inches, entry level model, augmented reality (AR) sensor, new camera configs

On the same day, The Bell tells us about the size of the largest S10 variant. If the sources are true, then it’s going to be the largest Galaxy phone with a whopping 6.44 inches screen diagonal. In fact, Galaxy Note 9 makes a red face with ‘only’ 6.38 inches screen.

Interestingly, there will be an entry-level model as well (probably the ‘beyond0’ one). It is atypically flat-shaped and has a size of around 5.0 inches. The second model’s camera config jumps from 2 to 3.

The presence of FoD is almost confirmed, but the 3D camera is still not mature enough. It will probably be shifted towards back as an augmented reality accessory.

[NEWS][SPECULATION] Side fingerprint scanner on entry-level variant, more confirmations about codenames

The Bell continues to publish excellent series of articles on S10, and now we are certain about the naming scheme of the 3 variants of the upcoming flagship. From ‘beyond0’ / ‘Beyond 0’ to ‘beyond3’ / ‘Beyond 3’, we gonna get an entry level model, a regular one and a gigantic ‘Plus’ variant.

Another fascinating turn of events – the entry-level model will probably sport a side fingerprint scanner located at the right edge of the user’s thumb. Along with The Bell, prominent Samsung leaker Ice Universe mentions it as well.

[CONCEPT] Dual and Triple rear camera

AllAboutSamsung is trying to come up with a concept picture of the rear camera setup of the S10 variants. Based on a tip from an unknown tipster, their concept shows a main variable-aperture camera (f1.5 / f2.4) with 12 MP and another with super wide angle (123°) and 16 MP at f1.9 on ‘beyond0’ & ‘beyond1’.

The ‘Plus’ variant AKA ‘beyond2’ carries a main camera with 12 MP and f1.5 / f2.4, a super wide angle camera with 16 MP and f1.9 and a telephoto camera with 13 MP and f2.4. The wide angle module however lacks OIS & autofocus.

[SPECULATION] No custom GPU for S10 yet

Debunking own speculation about the introduction of custom GPU inside upcoming Exynos 9820, Ice Universe now says (now deleted, screenshot attached) the SoC will get the graphics horsepower from ARM’s Mali-G76.

Thus S10 will not come with Samsung’s own GPU yet, but Mali-G76 will provide 25% higher maximum performance compared to Exynos 9810’s Mali-G72.

On the same day, Business Insider reveals a report by TF International Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo. Kuo is an avid Apple analyst, and when comes to accurate speculation it’s child play for him.

His report supports many of the previous rumours and leaks, such as three variants of S10, their screen sizes, side fingerprint sensor on the cheapest model etc. What it emphasizes is the usage of ultrasonic fingerprint sensor, which syncs with the other news that surfaced today.

Friday, 20th

[NEWS] Possible unification of S Plus and Note lineups

Now this is a big bomb to drop. According to The Bell, we’ll possibly get the news of merging the bigger ‘Plus’ variant of S family with the Note series of phones. Apart from the S Pen, keeping up two separate lineups sounds redundant.

[LEAK] Launch, pricing (UK), reverse charging and more!

“A source at a major tech retailer” has approached Gizmodo UK and reveals couple of stunning details about the ‘beyond’ family of phones.

Excluding the already verified list of info, we stumble on the first one – S10 will launch at a Samsung Unpacked event before MWC 2019, on the 20th of February. The phone will be available for preorder from that date, and will then be released on Friday, 8th March.

The phone will support wireless reverse charging, dubbed as ‘Powershare’.

[LEAK][SPECULATION] References of ultra-wide camera of S10

Galaxy A9 (2018) comes with an ultra-wide camera and it features ‘Ultra wide lens correction’ in Gallery which is nothing but eliminating the distorted portions by cropping. SamMobile reports that similar feature is live on Camera options under Android Pie beta for Galaxy S9 and Note 9 lineup.

Thanks to the shared codebase, it’s not hard to speculate that the same will present on S10 as well.

Friday, 14th

[LEAK] Model number of the 5G variant now finds evidences of the existence of two fascinating Samsung phones. The model number SM-G977U indicates a model for USA and SM-G977N indicates a South Korean model.

SamMobile leaks more precious information on the colour availability, and looks like yellow is going to be exclusive to the cheapest Lite model.

Ice Universe wants to give us a lecture on system architecture :P, while WikiChips talks about Exynos M4 and related patches to LLVM.

[LEAK][RUMOUR] S10 lineup may not feature UFS 3.0 or LPDDR5

Ice Universe cites poor benchmark results:

We already know that LPDDR5 is pushed back to 2020, thanks to Micron. On the other hand, Exynos 9820 and Snapdragon 855 platforms officially support upto LPDDR4X.

[LEAK] Hints about more AI, Intelligent Vision Sensor, clocked down LPDDR5

Posted as a response to the above tweet of Ice Universe, dylan522p’s tweet reveals couple of new aspects.

[NEWS] The 5G variant will be called Galaxy S10 X, scheduled release date, pricing and more!

[LEAK][RUMOUR] Samsung will be Qualcomm’s first major customer for its newest gen ultrasonic fingerprint readers

This comes as a derivative of another news about how Google is reevaluating the secureness of the current optical fingerprint sensors.

[LEAK] China Compulsory Certificate (CCC) listing confirms model numbers of S10 and S10+, reveals charging specs too is able to spot China’s CCC/3C listing of couple of new Samsung phones. The model numbers match with the purported S10 and S10+.

The included EP-TA200 charger will support 9V/1.67A and 5V/2A charging rates. The specs sound similar to existing Adaptive Fast Charging by Samsung, which is based on Quick Charge 2.0.

Probably we will not see a QC 4+ charger, as rumoured earlier. The absence of the E/Lite variant in the certification may indicate the base model isn’t heading towards China.

[LEAK][RUMOUR] Another case maker hints about S10 E variant

Azuri joins the bandwagon and publishes new listing of cases and screen protectors for S10 family.

While there are some confusions with the published renders (especially the number of cameras), it does mention the ‘E’ variant instead of ‘Lite’ for the base mode.

BTW, the 3.5 mm jack is there, as confirmed by the renders.

Wednesday, 16th

[LEAK] Snapdragon variant of S10+ shows up in Geekbench

An interesting Geekbench listing is live & the model in it is SM-G975U, presumably S10+.

This is the Snapdragon 855 powered model, which should be headed for USA, Latin America and China only. The benchmark only shows 6 GB of RAM, which could me a miscalculation or proof of existence of another model besides the previously rumoured 8 and 10 GB RAM variants.

[LEAK][RUMOUR] In-display ultrasonic fingerprint of S10 family may be incompatible with certain screen protectors

Military grade case maker ArmadilloTek reports that their Vanguard series of protectors may not feature a screen protector unit.

[LEAK][RUMOUR] S10+ spotted in wild

Credit to the guys over Slashleaks, we now probably have another real life sighting of Galaxy S10+ (because of the gigantic size).

Originally leaked through LG Mobile User Cafe / a reddit user, the region of the sighting is probably South Korea.

While the display cutouts are allegedly in their proper position, the UI seems much older than current One UI. May be a prototype running pre-production build?

[LEAK] Traces of the firmware of South Korean Galaxy S10 X discovered

SamFirmware, the sister wing of SamMobile locates the breadcrumbs of the firmware of the 5G variant of S10.

The current software version in testing is G977NKSU0ASA6, which is probably intended for South Korea. As for availability, only USA and South Korea should receive the 5G model.

Saturday, 19th

[LEAK][RUMOUR] #10YearChallenge, larger battery, faster charging, ceramic back

Samsung joins the bandwagon of #10YearChallenge, and their video may hint us about a larger battery or faster charging coming with S10.

On another tweet, Ice Universe talks about the rumored ceramic back version of S10+. Allegedly the highest config of S10+ with 12 GB RAM and 1 TB internal memory will get this treatment.

This ceramic has a special process that is not only scratch resistant but also resistant to falling, but the weight will increase.

People are already speculating about it being the most slipperiest phone ?

[LEAK] Benchmark of International Galaxy S10

Courtesy to MySmartPrice, the Geekbench page of Exynos powered Galaxy S10 is now publicly known.

The International variant of S10 family should be powered by Samsung’s in-house Exynos platform. The benchmark talks about the regular S10 (SM-G973) with 6 GB RAM.

Two rear cameras for the base model (E/Lite) and 3 for both the regular and Plus.

Although the information is more applicable in Italy, thus EU, but it certainly indicates about the hefty price tags. The S10+ will vary from €1049 to €1599, depending on memory configs.

The 6.1 inches regular S10 should come with €929 to €1179, as the internal storage and RAM varies. The cheapest S10, which is called ‘Lite’ here should be priced €779.

On the other hand, while they do mention two special variations of S10+, they are not ceramic.

[LEAK][RUMOUR] AI enhanced game play engine

Spotted by, a recent trademark filed by Samsung reveals an interesting expression – “Neuro Game Booster“.

Flaunting about the AI capabilities of the SoCs (Exynos 9820/Snapdragon 855) can be one of the reasons behind the trademark. While Galaxy Note 9 features some AI enhancement on mobile gaming, Samsung may want to set the level one step higher with Galaxy S10.

[NEWS] ISOCELL Slim 3T2 sensor is here

Samsung announces new 20 MP ISOCELL Slim 3T2 sensor. Being the smallest image sensor in the industry at just 5.1 mm diagonal, this one is specifically designed for using with display cutouts.

[LEAK][RUMOUR] S10+ leaks again

With two display holes for selfie cameras, here we go again:

Wednesday, 23rd

[LEAK] Another live image of S10 surfaces, with references of cryptocurrency wallet

This one comes from Gregory Blake / @GregiPfister89. Apart from the single display hole (indicating its a regular S10), this leak supports SamMobile’s previous claim about Samsung bundling blockchain support inside Galaxy S10.

The wallet is called ‘Samsung Blockchain KeyStore’ in the pics and Ethereum is the only supported currency, which will likely to extend further.

[LEAK] Evidence of reverse wireless charging support

While there are multiple claims in past about S10’s reverse wireless charging, another new leak is here to boost it further.

Reported by, a picture of a purported presentation controller showing multiple features of S10 lineup is here.

The first four buttons are designated for an introductory video, the cinematic display, the in-display fingerprint scanner and the triple rear camera, respectively. The last one is quite interesting, as it is indicating reverse wireless charging support.

[LEAK] Comparison with Galaxy A8s

Ice Universe compares the Galaxy A8s side by side with the yesterday’s leaked picture of Galaxy S10.

[RUMOUR] Battery details, thickness of Galaxy S10+

Ice Universe gives us hints about the thickness of the Plus variant. Compared to S9’s 8.5 mm, S10+ should be much thinner at 7.8 mm, while boasting a 4100 mAh battery.

[LEAK][RUMOUR] Another battery capacity details via certification authority

Brazil’s Anatel (The National Telecommunications Agency) is kind enough to give us battery capacity details of the whole S10 lineup.

Slashleaks spots it quickly but we have some doubts on the listing. The minimal capacity is shown as 3000 mAh for all S10 models which clearly contradicts with previous leaks.

S10 E/Lite probably sports a 3100 mAh (typical capacity) battery, which is only inline with this leak.

[LEAK][RUMOUR] Live images of prototype S10 and S10+

Courtesy to, another set of live images are now leaked.

According to them, the devices are prototypes. Thus couple of shown features like the boot logo, wallpapers or even the bezels may change with the final release.

In a press release, Samsung highlights the features of the incoming Exynos 9820 platform.

The chipset is built on 8 nm LPP process, which is much power efficient than last year’s 10 nm LPP process. The dedicated NPU and it’s AI capabilities are specifically mentioned.

Samsung made this platform to handle up to 5 camera modules, which is a clear indicator of Galaxy S10’s rumoured multi-camera setup. The International 5G variant of S10 will sport the same SoC, and the supporting modem should be Exynos Modem 5100.

Saturday, 26th

[LEAK] New wireless charger for Galaxy S10

Droid Shout people are able locate FCC certification of another new wireless charger from Samsung that may be bundled with upcoming S10 family.

The new charger comes with the model number of EP-P5200, which is clearly one step beyond of the existing EP-P5100. The new charger is rated at 12V 2.1A (~15W) input, which is higher than EP-P5100 (9V 1.67A) and almost similar to Samsung’s fast wireless charger duo (EP-N6100).

Sunday, 27th

[LEAK][RUMOUR] Another live image of S10+

S10+ with two front cameras is spotted again on Weibo. Android Pie’s recent app switcher is on the screen, which again indicates S10 runs One UI on top of Android 9.

[LEAK][RUMOUR] Base model of S10 won’t be labeled as ‘Lite’

The naming convention of the upcoming S10 models is still a mystery. Especially with the base 5.8 inches variant is the king of controversies on this matter.

Now a leak is surfaced and it is from an anonymous source close to some Samsung rep. The tipster reached to GSMArena and if the claims are true, then the representative had access to working prototypes.

First of all, the cheapest (as well as smallest) Galaxy won’t be called ‘Lite’. Possibly the rumoured ‘E’ moniker is also cancelled. Rather the phone will just be the smallest Galaxy S10 with same internal specs as the other models – that’s all folks!

The premium version of S10+ should carry 12 GB RAM and 1 TB internal storage though, which is inline with previous speculations.

[RUMOUR] Samsung may reuse ‘The Game Changer’ tagline for S10

Samsung used the tagline ‘A Game Changer’ with last year’s Galaxy Note 9.

Now you are advised to take this with a little grain of salt, as someone claims they may reuse the same phrase for S10 for Italian/European markets.

[LEAK][RUMOUR] Updated Anatel listing reveals revised battery capacity

The Anatel certification agency has updated their listing for S10 lineup and Nashville Chatter spots them.

[OFFICIAL INFO] This is the day!

No more speculation, no more leak – Galaxy S10 is now official!

The official live stream of the Galaxy Unpacked 2019 event can be seen here:

To be humble, this time we have got too many prior leaks that make the event quite numb. Not entirely though, as Samsung shows us the first folding phone AKA Samsung Fold as well as the monstrous 5G variant of Galaxy S10.

As speculated earlier, there are 3 major variants of the regular LTE Galaxy S10. All of them feature a 19:9 Dynamic AMOLED screen with punch hole/’Infinity-O’ display which is HDR10+ capable which is first of its kind.

S10e has a 5.8 inch flat screen, whereas regular S10 (6.1 inch) and S10+ (6.4 inch) opt for curved QHD+ screens. Depending on your region, you will get either Exynos 9820 or Snapdragon 855 SoC based powerhouse, with 6/8/12 GB of LPDDR4X RAM and 128/256/512/1024 GB of internal storage. A microSD slot supporting upto 512 GB is also there.

Samsung works hard on the camera segment, and the last few speculations match with the actual implementation. A capable combination of telephoto (except S10e), wide-angle and ultra Wide trio with AI enhancements make S10 the camera beast of this year.

The 3.5 mm headphone jack remains. Samsung bumps the battery capacity up to 4100 mAh on the S10+ variant. Unfortunately the Korean OEM sticks to age old Samsung Adaptive Fast Charging of traditional wired charging, but puts upgraded 12 W Fast Wireless Charging 2.0 and Wireless Power Share (reverse charging) techs.

The 5G variant is way more large – 6.7 inch! Most of the specs are similar to S10+, with the addition of 4500 mAh battery, quad rear cameras and 25 W Super Fast Charging.

The phones run Android 9 Pie with Samsung’s own One UI. The 5G variant will be Verizon exclusive before wider availability.

Regarding pricing, Galaxy S10e will be available for $749, while the regular S10 will be $899. The Galaxy S10+ will be $999, but we don’t know anything about the pricing of the 5G model.
