Galaxy S10, main features
As of right now, it appears that there will be four Galaxy S10 models: three so called normal smartphones and a forth model, called Beyond X.
The first three will have screens with dimensions ranging from 5.8 inch, to 6.4 inch. There will also be three to five cameras.
S10 5G will feature a 6.7 inch screen and five cameras, including the two selfie cameras.
Samsung won’t be putting a notch on Galaxy S10. Instead, the new smartphone will feature a hole in the upper right corner of the screen to accommodate the two frontal cameras.

The same version could also be the first to offer 1 TB of internal storage.
A new graphic interface for the Galaxy S10
Galaxy S10 will be the first Samsung smartphone to feature the interface called One UI.
One UI has tow basic principles. The first one is make more use of the dark colors so that the OLED screens will use less power.
The second principle is to bring the main features of an app closer to user’s fingers so that more buttons are reachable with one hand.
It remains to be seen if Samsung will achieve it’s goals and if other that their own apps will borrow this principles.
S10 will be the first Samsung smartphone with a fingerprint sensor integrated in the screen. It will be supersonic sensor.
