Samsung Galaxy S10 is the company's tenth anniversary edition flagship smartphone and reports coming in now suggest that four variants of the smartphone will be unveiled sometime next year. New developments have now surfaced that claim that at least one of the variants of the Galaxy S10 will sport a ceramic back instead of the usual glass in the current generation. Instead of gradient options, the ceramic variant of the Galaxy S10 will arrive in just two Black and White colour options. Much like glass, ceramic also offers support for wireless charging but is much stronger on the Moh's scale of mineral hardness.
The company's next flagship smartphone is largely expected to launch in four variants. The entry-level SM-G970x will sport a 5.8-inch display panel and a modest single rear camera, much like the current Galaxy S9. The SM-G973 and SM-G975 will be the two premium options in the Galaxy S10, sporting 5.8-inch and 6.44-inch displays, respectively. While the SM-G973 will sport a dual rear camera setup, the SM-G975 will reportedly get three cameras at the back.
Next, the top of the line SM-G975FC is expected to come with features such as a 6.7-inch display, a quad camera setup at the back, dual selfie cameras, and 5G support. It is this variant that will sport a ceramic back, instead of one made of glass, as per a report by SamMobile. The Galaxy S10 is due for launch in February next year, however, the 5G-capable model might not be released until March next year dependent on telecom carriers supporting the cellular technology.
A report from earlier this week suggested that Samsung will employ M9 display panels that will sport diode pumped solid state (DPSS) laser-drilled holes to fit in the selfie camera and the infrared sensor. This will allow Samsung to offer a bezel-less look without having to compromise with a thick top border or a display notch.
