Taiwanese smartphone maker Samsung announced this week that it will be unveiling its next flagship device, Galaxy S10+, on February 20. Reports and rumours about the smartphone have been surfacing online for months now. And now, according to the latest report, Samsung Galaxy S10+ will house a 4,000mAh battery and its body will be 7.8mm thick. This information has been leaked by tipster Ice Universe.
Most previous reports have said that Samsung is set to launch three smartphones in its Galaxy S10 series – the Galaxy S10, the Galaxy S10+ and Galaxy S10 Lite. Sometime after the launch, two 5G variants of the smartphone series will also be launched. Ice Universe had previously also said that the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S10, Samsung Galaxy S10+, and Samsung Galaxy S10 Lite will pack a 3,500mAh, a 4,000mAh and 3,100mAh battery respectively. In the latest tweet, the tipster has claimed, “The Galaxy S10+ has a 7.8mm thick body and a 4000mAh battery.”

It has also been revealed that all the three variants of the flagship series will be powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 processor or Exynos 9820 SoC, depending on the country. However, it is worth noticing that Samsung may not call the ‘Lite’ version of its flagship smartphone as ‘Samsung Galaxy S10 Lite’ but instead will market it as ‘Samsung Galaxy S10 E.’
Samsung Galaxy S10 E is said to sport a flat display but will share most of the specifications of the Galaxy S10 smartphone otherwise. All the smartphones in Samsung’s flagship series are expected to feature thin bezels, even on their top and bottom. It has also been reported that they will come with in-display front cameras, much like Samsung Galaxy A8s. Samsung calls this type of a screen as Infinity O display.
Other rumours about Samsung Galaxy S10 E suggest that the smartphone will come with dual rear cameras, with one being a telephoto lens and the other being an ultra-wide angle lens. On the other hand, Samsung Galaxy S10 is rumoured to come with a triple rear camera setup, whereas Galaxy S10+ will come with quad cameras with a TOF (Time of Flight) 3D camera.
