Rumours circulating around says Samsung is bringing a low-cost version of the Galaxy S10. And a leak from WinFuture suggests that the images of an unknown phone is the Samsung Galaxy S10E. The supposed Galaxy S10E is the cheaper and 5.8-inch version of the S10, which is going to launch on February 20.
The Galaxy S10E is also having thicker bezels and dual cameras. It may also have a smaller battery as compared to the predicted specs of the other S10’s.
Supposedly, the price of the phone will start from around $859 (about ₵4300), which is really not low-cost.
An obvious difference on the S10E is the phone’s screen. Unlike the presumed appearance of the S10 line, and the S9 which appears to have screen that curve at the edges, the S10E seems to have a rather normal screen, going all flat across the surface.
Its thick bezels gives it the resemblance of the iPhone XR. The camera on the front side is a hole-punch camera that it, the camera is cut-out on the screen.
The Galaxy S10E is expected to come with a fingerprint sensor. But rather than having the fingerprint scanner on the screen or at the back of the phone, the sensor is said to be on the side. This is really odd since most of the phone industry have stopped using the side fingerprint sensor.
Initially, we reported that the Samsung will bring only 3 version of the Galaxy S10. But it seems to be 4 now with the addition of the newly rumoured one. There is the original S10, the S10 Plus, an S10 variant that supports 5G and then this newly rumoured one – the S10E.
We expect the first 3 models of the S10 to come with 3 cameras on the rear side. Their fingerprint scanners are in-display. They are going to be launched on February 20 in San Francisco.
