GalaxyClub claims that this device is not as far ahead in the developmental cycle as the other three rumored Galaxy S10 smartphones. To recap., Samsung is rumored to launch three Galaxy S smartphones next year; an entry-level Galaxy S10 Lite, the Galaxy S10 and the Galaxy S10+.

Qualcomm centered its 2018 tech summit in Huawei earlier this month around 5G, despite the Snapdragon 855 being unable to directly support the technology. Samsung too has demoed 5G on what just might be a Galaxy S10 prototype.

Additionally, the information viewed by GalaxyClub suggests that the smartphone might be limited to the US and South Korea. The reason for this is that the publication has only seenthe  SM-G977U (American) and SM-G977N (South Korean) variants. This report is interesting given a recent alleged pricing leak for next year’s Galaxy S10 lineup. Samsung’s highest-end Galaxy S10+ will reportedly cost more than $1500, and if the company launches a fourth gadget with 5G, then expect this price tag to increase.

The Korean tech giant is also rumored to equip the Galaxy S10 and Galaxy S10+ with FOD (Finger-On-Display) fingerprint sensors. Additionally, the Galaxy S10+ is also rumored to feature an ultra-wide angle rear camera sensor, and the S10 Lite will allegedly come in no less than five color variants. Of course, not that it needs saying, but keep the salt shaker at hand when evaluating this information.
