Samsung Galaxy M20 front panel with'waterdrop style notch leaks online

"According to @onleaks which had shared his renders with 91Mobiles, Galaxy S10 Plus will feature a 6.4" Quad HD+ AMOLED display which is a similar size as the current Galaxy Note9. Much like the Galaxy S9 series, the Galaxy S10 family is expected to utilize the earpiece as another speaker when necessary and hence deliver a stereo audio experience which should once again be optimized by AKG, the Austrian subsidiary of Samsung-owned technology giant Harman.

From the renders, the bezels for the sides appear to be quite thick but it looks quite symmetrical on all sides. There's still no indication that the colors in question will be launching in other markets but after Huawei, LG, and several other smartphone makers saw success with gradient smartphone finishes, Samsung may be willing to start experimenting with the thereof on a global scale as well.

The back of the phone is less exciting-there's a line of three cameras along with a heart rate sensor and flash.

Another thing worth pointing out is that the Galaxy S10 Plus doesn't have a visible fingerprint scanner on the back like the Galaxy Note 9. However, the company made a silly mistake of advertising its Galaxy Note display on Twitter from the iPhone.

It was claimed the S10+ would possess a normal front sensor that would be accompanied by a wide-angle lens. It's also believed that Samsung will completely ditch its iris scanning feature and replace it with a new version of its face unlock technology. It was reported in October that Samsung is planning to ditch the headphone jack starting in fall 2019, possibly with the release of the Galaxy Note 10.

LetsGoDigital recently outed patent applications that suggested Samsung is working on a number of different design ideas for the Galaxy S10.

The new leak also shows a dedicated Bixby button sitting on the left edge of the device, immediately below a volume rocker.

MySmartPrice emphasised the added camera could force the Galaxy S10+ to arrive with a "pill-shaped display hole", rather than the single and smaller circular cutout expected on some other Galaxy S10 hardware.
