Alleged Samsung Galaxy S10 5G Version Prototype Leaked in a New Video

A video showing an alleged Galaxy S10 5G version prototype has surfaced online. The device was used by SK Telecom to officially launch its 5G service in South Korea.


Earlier this month, a rumor claimed a variant of the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S10 flagship smartphone might feature a humongous 6.7-inch sized display and 5G support. An alleged video of the Galaxy S10 5G variant has now surfaced online. Chinese leakster Ice Universe claims the device seen in the video is one of the many prototypes of the Galaxy S10 5G version that Samsung is testing internally. While the Galaxy S10 is expected to be launched at the Mobile World Congress 2019 in Barcelona, the 5G version is tipped to be launched later in Spring.

Alleged Galaxy S10 5G Prototype Surfaces in Hands-On Video

The video showing the Galaxy S10 5G prototype was taken during an event in South Korea, where SK Telecom CEO, Park Jung-Ho made a 5G video call using the operator’s 5G network control center in Bundang-gu to a staff manager at the company’s office in central Seoul. As you can see in the video below, the prototype Galaxy S10 appears to have a thicker bezel at the top than what we would expect from a 2019 flagship smartphone. The chin at the bottom is also on the thicker side when compared to the latest Android flagship smartphones. Even though the device may well be a Galaxy S10 prototype, the final version of the smartphone will in all likelihood not look anything like it. As suggested by the latest reports, Galaxy S10 is expected to feature an Infinity-O Display with an in-display selfie camera. Since the Galaxy S10 will not have a notch and the selfie camera will be an in-display one, it is expected to have a significantly improved screen-to-body ratio compared to the current Galaxy S9 models.

What to Expect from the Galaxy S10 5G Version

According to a recent report published by Wall Street Journal, Samsung will be launching four Galaxy S10 models next year. Three Galaxy S10 models are expected to be introduced at the Mobile World Congress 2019 in Barcelona, while the fourth model with 5G connectivity will be making its debut later in Spring. Another recent report shed some more light on the 5G version of the Galaxy S10, claiming that the smartphone will come equipped with a massive 12GB of RAM and 1TB of onboard storage. Since Samsung’s latest flagship smartphones do come with a microSD card slot for further expansion, we expect the Galaxy S10 5G version to support further storage expansion as well. In the camera department, the Galaxy S10 5G version is tipped to come with a total of six cameras. Similar to the Galaxy A9 (2018), the smartphone will reportedly feature a quad-camera setup on the back and dual selfie cameras on the front.

All Galaxy S10 models are expected to be powered by Samsung’s next-generation Exynos 9820 SoC in most international markets, while the US and Chinese variants will likely run on a Snapdragon 8150 chipset under the hood. The top-end 5G version is expected to include an in-display fingerprint sensor as well, although some rumors claim otherwise. Another key feature of the Galaxy S10 series is expected to be reverse wireless charging support. In terms of color options, the Galaxy S10 is said to be available in Black, White, Yellow, and Green color options. A model with a ceramic build is rumored to be launched as well.
