Galaxy S10 Plus renders leak (Update: Yesterday's renders wrong, these are right)
Update, December 4, 2018 (02:25 PM ET): Turns out that the Samsung Galaxy S10 Plus renders leaked yesterday by @OnLeaks were wrong. We now have new renders from the same source. Check them out below:
The biggest difference between today’s renders and the old, incorrect renders is that there are now four cameras on the rear of the device. Yesterday’s renders had only a triple-lens setup.
Because of the addition of the extra sensor, the shapes of the flash and sensors are a little different, too. However, this isn’t that noticeable. You’ll also notice that even in these new renders, the headphone jack is still there on the bottom.

Original Article, December 3, 2018 (07:00 AM ET): We’ve had a ton of Galaxy S10 leaks in the second half of 2018, covering the camera details, model line-up and much more. But we haven’t really had a great idea of what Samsung’s flagship phones will look like.
Now, 91Mobiles and OnLeaks have delivered a ton of renders, purportedly revealing the upcoming flagship in all its glory. The new leak covers the Galaxy S10 Plus, which is expected to be larger (obviously) than the standard Galaxy S10. Aside from the images, we also get a 360 degree video (seen above) to give us a better idea of the 2019 superphone.
The leak indeed shows a triple camera setup on the rear, with all three cameras arranged horizontally. We also see a flash and what is presumably the heart-rate sensor next to the cameras.
Unlike the Galaxy Note 9 and Galaxy S9, we don’t see a rear fingerprint scanner here. There isn’t a visible scanner on the front either, because Samsung has apparently gone for an ultrasonic in-display fingerprint sensor, according to the publication. This differs from current in-display sensors on the market by using ultrasonic sound waves to verify fingerprints.
Speaking of the front, the Galaxy S10 Plus sports two selfie cameras in a display hole or camera cutout, rather than in a notch. So it indeed looks like you’re getting five cameras — if the second selfie camera isn’t actually related to facial recognition. Speaking of facial recognition, it’s believed that the new phone will ditch the iris scanner in favor of a face unlock solution.
Look at the bottom of the phone and you’ll find a speaker grille, USB Type-C port, and (yes!) a headphone jack. So it tentatively seems like Samsung isn’t jumping on this controversial trend just yet. As for other design choices, we’ve got the power and volume rocker on the right, and the Bixby key on the left. We also see a HUAWEI-style gradient color scheme on one of the models — hopefully we see more gradient color options at launch.
