New information keeps leaking out about Samsung’s new Galaxy S10 phone.
The latest leak comes for the XDA Developer blog, which noticed something very interesting hidden inside the Android 9.0 update from Samsung: We may be looking at a total of four different models of the Samsung Galaxy S10.
Earlier this summer, we shared the rumors from analyst Ming-Chi Kuo’s report concerning three possible versions of the S10. XDA’s findings point to an additional, previously unreported version of the phone.
Here’s what we’re possibly looking at thanks to the the XML files that were found by XDA:
beyond0 – Beyond is known to be Samsung’s codename for the Galaxy S10. The assumption is this will be the lowest priced S10 with lower-end specs.
beyond1: The main version of Samsung’s main Galaxy S10 which is said to have a 5.8-inch AMOLED display
beyond2: A bigger version of the new phone, the Galaxy S10+ model is said to have a 6.44-inch screen
beyond25g: The fourth, previously unreported phone. It’s believed to be Samsung’s first Galaxy phone that supports 5G.
It must be stressed that the number of phone variants are just rumors at this point. However, the evidence does supply proof that the phone exists.
This combined with our earlier report today on a Samsung phone with possibly 3 to 4 rear cameras on way should keep consumers salivating for more details. And after the disappointing sales of the Galaxy S9, Samsung can certainly use the excitement surrounding their next generation of smartphones.
Samsung sent out invites a few days ago for “A Galaxy Event” coming up on October 11 boasting about “4x fun” in very large text. Could that be a reference to this new information concerning four possible Galaxy S10 models?
It looks like we’ll all find out what Samsung has in store for us on October 11.
