As we know already, the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S10 will be launched in three different versions, but according to a new report, a fourth model is also in the works with stunning specifications.
The Wall Street Journal writes that in addition to a base Galaxy S10 and two premium siblings, Samsung is developing what is being described as a “top-secret” version codenamed Beyond X.
This particular S10 will support 5G and will come with an even larger screen than the top-of-the-range premium model. It could measure 6.7 inches, according to the report, and it is expected to use Infinity O screens with the front-facing camera embedded into the glass.
Furthermore, Samsung could use a total of six different cameras on this high-end Galaxy S10, four on the back and two on the front.
While the purpose of these cameras isn’t yet known, the cited source says they should offer “richer photos and better spatial perception.” There’s no word on whether Samsung wants to offer 3D sensing cameras for facial recognition like Apple does on the new iPhones, but the company is expected to bet big on AR with this model.
Launch expected in spring 2019
The largest Samsung Galaxy S10 will use a dual-camera configuration on the back and a single camera on the front, previous reports have indicated. It may come with a 6.4-inch screen.
While the Galaxy S10 lineup comprising the three models is scheduled to go live in February, the 5G-enabled version is more likely to arrive later next year, though Samsung is still aiming for a spring release. It will be released in the United States and South Korea, but other markets could get it too depending on 5G network availability.
An announcement could also be made in February, and Samsung is currently working with the largest carriers in the two countries on 5G network support, but discussions are still under way and a decision hasn’t been made.
