Galaxy S10 case renders seemingly confirm three variants and hardware features
Every year Samsung releases a new generation of Galaxy S smartphones and every year they leak out early. While we’ve already seen a good number of photos appear online, Evan Blass has now shared case renders of the South Korean company’s entire Galaxy S10 lineup.
The below renders reportedly show the Galaxy S10E (previously known as the Lite version), S10, and S10 Plus.

If you turn the contrast up on the renders, you can spot a number of additional features. First, it’s quite clear that the Galaxy S10E and S10 each sport a single hole punch camera sensor while the S10 Plus includes a dual-camera setup.
Second, the Galaxy S10 and S10 Plus feature three cameras around back while the S10E only has two. Thanks to a previous leak, it’s rumored that the three rear sensors will include a 12MP primary camera with an f/1.5 to f/2.4 variable aperture, a 16MP wide-angle sensor, and a 13MP camera with a telephoto lens. We’re not sure what two sensors will be available on the S10E.
Third, while the Galaxy S10 and S10 Plus will likely include an in-display fingerprint sensor in addition to face unlocking technology, the cheaper S10E model will not. Instead, it appears as though Samsung is going to add a side-mounted fingerprint sensor that doubles as the power button.
Lastly, thanks to the case being clear, we can see that all three phones should include a 3.5mm headphone jack, USB-C port, and a bottom-facing speaker. Additionally, there had some talk that Samsung might use a sound-emitting screen similar to the Vivo Nex phone, but the renders do appear to show a minuscule cutout for an earpiece at the top of the display.
Based on previous leaks, it’s believed that the Galaxy S10E will have a 5.8-inch display, the S10 will have a 6.1-inch screen, and the S10 Plus will be the largest at 6.4-inches. It’s also rumored that the class on the two larger models will be curved on the side like with previous Samsung handsets while the S10E will be flat, but it’s hard to tell if that’s exactly true in these renders.
One thing to note here is that case renders aren’t always the most reliable. Occasionally, the accessory manufacturers like to sprinkle on additional details that won’t be seen when the handset is released. But as these images look realistic and they were leaked by Blass, we find them trustworthy.
