Yesterday we got early looks at the Samsung Galaxy S10 and Galaxy S10+, and now it's the Galaxy S10E's time in the leak spotlight.
Several press renders of the Samsung Galaxy S10E have been leaked by WinFuture, showing a device that looks similar to the Galaxy S10 but has a few subtle differences. For instance, the S10E screen is completely flat, while the displays on the S10 and S10+ are curved at the edges. The bezels surrounding the S10E's display are also a bit larger than those on the S10 and S10+.
The display on the Galaxy S10E is also smaller than the screens on the S10 and S10+. The Galaxy S10E has a 5.8-inch display, while the S10 has a 6.1-inch screen and the S10+ has a 6.4-inch display. And while the S10 and S10+ both have in-display fingerprint sensors, the S10E does not, instead coming with a fingerprint reader that's built into the power button on the right side of the device.
Around back, the Galaxy S10E only has two cameras, while the Galaxy S10 and Galaxy S10+ both have triple rear camera setups. Today's report also mentions that the battery in the Galaxy S10E is smaller than the batteries powering its siblings, coming in at 3100mAh while the S10 and S10+'s are 3400mAh and 4100mAh, respectively.
Samsung has been offering Galaxy S and Galaxy S+ variants for the past couple of years, but this year it looks like the Galaxy S line will be expanding to add a "Lite" Galaxy S10E model. We don't yet know how much it'll cost, but it'll presumably be a bit cheaper than the standard Galaxy S10 model. And with flagship smartphones seemingly getting pricier each year and the Galaxy S10's screen size getting bigger this year, a more affordable Galaxy S10E with a 5.8-inch display could be welcome.
