The good ship Samsung has developed yet another Galaxy S10-sized leak with new images from well-known leaker Evan Blass appearing. The leaked images confirm most of what we already know with camera placement, display size and overall form factor now all but 100% confirmed. If Samsung is trying to pull a fast one on us, they're doing a damn good job of seeding images and information in order to build up the hype.
What We Already Know
Over the last three months or so, there's been a steady stream of information appearing.
The spec sheet looks impressive.
- 8-core processor Exynos 9820 CPU with a next-gen Mongoose M4 core with core clock-speed of around 3.30GHz
- 6.1-inch edge-to-edge display running at 1440 by 2960 pixels
- Three camera rear array with a combination of normal, wide-angle and zoom
There are also expectations that a 5G-enabled version, the Beyond X will be part of the range, ushering in one of the first commercially available 5G handsets on the market. And there may be a larger-screened version with a pair of front cameras although that's yet to be confirmed by a solid leak from a trusted source.
And while wireless charging is pretty common, the Galaxy S10 will also be able to act as a charger so your Qi-compatible headphones and other accessories can get juiced up from your phone. Or you can help a friend by letting them borrow some of your electrons if they're running low.

If the leaked image is accurate, it confirms that last year's notch is this year's hole. The selfie camera will be in the top right corner and appear as a small circular gap in the display. Three of the bezels are razor thin with the lower one marginally thicker.
When Can You Get One?
Samsung's usual plan is to announce the new handset just before Mobile World Congress (MWC) kicks off in late February. This year, that's the 25th of February. So, we can expect Samsung to do their big reveal around the 20th of February so they can take advantage of the news cycle through the second half the week leading up to MWC.
