Samsung is gearing up to launch the Galaxy S10 series next year, but even as we are months away from the launch, new rumors about these upcoming devices keep popping up. In the latest leak, benchmarks of the Galaxy S10 powered by the newly announced Snapdragon 855 chipset have surfaced on the internet.
Earlier, renders of the Galaxy S10+ surfaced courtesy @Onleaks, showing off a quad-camera setup on the back along with a dual camera setup on the front. Interestingly enough, the front cameras will be housed in a capsule-style notch on the front, making it the first Samsung flagship to feature the (dreaded) notch.
Now, the Galaxy S10 renders have also been revealed, giving us a glimpse into the next generation of Samsung flagships. According to the renders, the Galaxy S10 is set to sport a dual camera setup on the back. Further, reports also suggest that Samsung could opt for an in-display fingerprint solution with the Galaxy S10 series, which would be another first for Samsung.
Samsung is also going to launch Snapdragon variants of its Galaxy S10 range, using the newly announced Snapdragon 855 chipset. Note that the Galaxy S10 Snapdragon variant will launch in a select few markets only. As far as India is concerned, we might get the Exynos 9820 variant instead.
In the benchmarks, it can be observed that the Snapdragon 855 chipset barely beats the Exynos 9820 and Huawei’s Kirin 980, which might come as a surprise to some, especially given that Kirin 980 is not a new chipset. With that being said, it might not mean much when you consider that even mid-range smartphones are fast and smooth enough these days.
Samsung is expected to launch three variants in the Galaxy S10 series - the standard Galaxy S10, the Galaxy S10+ and a new Galaxy S10 Lite variant which might be slightly less feature-packed when compared to the standard S10 and S10+.
