Samsung is rumored to have a lower-cost model of the Galaxy S10 within the works, and it appears to be like like pictures of that cellphone have simply leaked. WinFuture printed a sequence of pictures this morning displaying off a cellphone they imagine might be referred to as the Galaxy S10E — a 5.8-inch model with thicker bezels, twin cameras, and a smaller battery.
The cellphone is meant to promote for round $859. That’s not at all “low value,” but it surely’s in the identical ballpark because the iPhone XR, which begins at $749. The 2 telephones even appear to share loads in widespread: they’re lower-end variations of flagship gadgets that look largely the identical, simply with some slight visible and technical downgrades.
Just like the iPhone XR, one large distinction on the S10E seems to be the display screen. Slightly than having a display screen that curves on the edges just like the S9 (and, presumably, the remainder of the S10 line), it seems to have a standard display screen that simply goes flat throughout the floor of the cellphone. It additionally has thicker bezels, which just about give it a resemblance to the XR, too. It does preserve the hole-punch digicam, although.
One different quirk of the S10E: it’s anticipated to have a aspect fingerprint sensor somewhat than a rear or under-display one. That’d be uncommon for Samsung, which doesn’t typically use aspect sensors. Many of the cellphone business has additionally moved away from them.
Samsung is meant to have 4 variations of the Galaxy S10 within the works. Along with this low-end mannequin, there’s imagined to be the S10, S10 Plus, and a model that helps 5G. These fashions are anticipated to have three rear cameras and in-display fingerprint sensors. They need to be introduced later this month.
