Samsung works on at least three variants of its flagship smartphone, the Galaxy S10. This smartphone is codenamed "Beyond" and is expected to be launched at Mobile World Congress in February next year. The Galaxy S10 marks the tenth anniversary of the Galaxy S lineup and Samsung mobile chief DJ Koh has confirmed that it will bring big changes.
One of the changes that came to the Galaxy S10 will switch back to the horizontal camera settings. After being criticized for the strange fingerprint sensor and out of range in the Galaxy S8, Samsung uses a vertical camera setting on the Galaxy S9. However, the company uses a horizontal camera layout on the Galaxy Note 9, which is reported to have helped add a larger battery. Now, report from Phonearena states that the Samsung Galaxy S10 will also display horizontal camera settings.
Leaky reports and reports originating from South Korea so far claim that the Galaxy S10 will vertically stack settings for dual or triple cameras with fingerprint sensors placed below it. Now, the decision to switch back to the horizontal camera layout resonates with rumors that Samsung is planning a larger battery capacity with the Galaxy S10 model.
Leaks so far claim that the Galaxy S10 + will have a larger 4,000 mAh battery compared to the 3.500mAh battery seen in the Galaxy S9 +. Battery capacity shows that we see a plus model that will be in the same league as the Galaxy Note 9. The report concludes that the smartphone will display three camera settings similar to the Huawei Mate 20 Pro but stacked horizontally.
Latest reports from Bloomberg claims that Samsung works on three versions of the Galaxy S10 for 2018. This smartphone is said to arrive in a cheaper version without a curved display, mid-range version with double curved edge display and display fingerprint sensor and all three premium models with support for networks mobile 5G Verizon. Only premium models are expected to get a triple camera system while the other two variants remain with a dual rear camera.

The entry-level model and mid-range model are expected to feature a 5.8-inch screen while the high-end version, which may be called the Galaxy S10 +, is expected to offer a bigger 6.44-inch screen. This particular model is rumored to offer a screen-to-body ratio of 93.4 percent and features a new Infinity-O screen that further cuts the bezel around the bezel.
This new screen technology is also rumored to only use a small hole in the screen for the front camera home. Samsung is set to launch next-generation mobile processors in Korea tomorrow and the Galaxy S10 and Galaxy S10 + will be the first devices to use this new processor. Samsung will offer this device with a Qualcomm mainstay processor in the US. They will run Android 9 Pie outside the box along with the One UI company which was announced at SDC last week.
