UPDATE: New information from the Wall Street Journal claim that there will be four variants of the upcoming Galaxy S10, one of which includes a 6.7-inch “Beyond X” with full 5G support, two cameras in the front, and four cameras in the back, for a grand total six cameras.
It speculated Samsung will reveal this information officially in mid-February and that its release would also mark the rollout of 5G networks. The other three variants of the S10 would have displays ranging from 5.8 inches to 6.4 inches with three to five cameras between them. Although the designs are not final, it’s also rumored the handheld will be able to wirelessly charge other phones, similar to Huawei’s Mate 20 Pro.

Responsible for previous Samsung leaks in the past, SamMobile has reportedly leaked that three Galaxy S10 models will debut all featuring in-display fingerprint functionality. The Samsung-focused site also revealed a new low-budget model will be among them, and as such, all three of the phones won’t be equal.
The superior Galaxy S10 and S10+ will utilize ultrasonic display-based sensors, leaving the entry-level model to employ an optical sensor. However, a new report out of South Korea today claims that it will actually be present on all three Galaxy S10 variants, with the lower-end model using an optical fingerprint sensor. With this in mind, Samsung’s upcoming Galaxy smartphone is slated to be the first handset with ultrasonic sensor capabilities.
