South Korea technology giant Samsung has announced its Galaxy Unpacked event that is scheduled to take place in San Francisco on February 20. Although the company has not revealed what it has up its sleeve for the event, it is quite evident that Samsung will be launching its three Galaxy S10 smartphones at Galaxy Unpacked. These will include Samsung Galaxy S10, Galaxy S10+ and a lite version of the device. The smartphone giant has also hinted that its much-talked-about foldable Galaxy F may also be launched at the event. But only time will tell if that will happen.
However, a month before its launch, Samsung Galaxy S10+ has reportedly appeared in a live photo that has been shared on Reddit by a user named hissick27. The image that has been shared confirms the prior report that claims that Samsung Galaxy S10+ will come with dual selfie cameras on the top right of its display. It can also be seen in the picture that the bezels of the smartphone are even thinner than that of Samsung Galaxy S9+.
While the poster confirmed that the smartphone in the image shared is Samsung Galaxy S10+, he removed the watermark on the screen with the device’s serial number and his employee ID. It is being said that the image looks like it has been taken on the bus which was either going to Samsung Electronics’ Suwon campus or coming back from it. It is also worth noticing that the smartphone in the picture is kept inside its pre-production case, which was probably used to hide the design until it is launched.
According to reports, the upcoming smartphone is lighter than Samsung Galaxy S9, in spite of being of the same size. We should also mention that the hole on top of the Infinity-O display of Samsung Galaxy S10+ is not noticeable in the image at all. The smartphone’s display has an ultrasonic in-display fingerprint scanner embedded in it. The on-screen selfie camera, the in-display sensor and the dual selfie cameras are the key differences that Samsung Galaxy S10+ has as compared to its predecessor.
We should also mention that the company has already used the Infinity-O display, that comes with a hole on it to house the selfie camera, in Samsung Galaxy A8s smartphone. The same technology was also seen in Honor View 20 and Huawei Nova 4.
