The blue model might not be available immediately
According to rumors, the blue color option won’t be available at launch – at least in Europe, anyway. Instead, Samsung is expected to focus on its other colors initially before gradually expanding the availability of its upcoming blue model across the globe.
Rather interestingly, this camera design has been carried over to the Galaxy S10e too. This is quite surprising as, up until now, all leaked variants of the compact flagship have featured camera modules which matched the color of the rear panel.
Five Galaxy S10e models are seemingly on the way
While on the topic of finishes, it’s worth noting that the Galaxy S10e will eventually be available in a total of five colors. Aside from the blue variant, these will include black, white, green, and yellow.
All of these models should cost in the region of $750 in the US and will be identical on the inside. This means consumers can expect either the Snapdragon 855 or Samsung’s own Exynos 9820. The included processor will then be accompanied by 6GB of RAM and a very respectable 128GB of internal storage, according to recent rumors.
Looking at the external side of things, a flat AMOLED Infinity-O display complete with a punch-hole in the top right corner and minimal bezels is to be expected. This will be accompanied by an aluminum frame, which is home to a fingerprint scanner, and a glass rear.
Speaking of the rear, Samsung has seemingly fitted two cameras on the back. The primary sensor should boast a 12-megapixel resolution and variable aperture support for improved low-light photography. The secondary 16-megapixel camera, on the other hand, looks set to come coupled with a wide-angle lens.
Other Galaxy S10e specs include Android 9 Pie complete with the One UI overlay straight out of the box, a 3.5mm headphone jack, and potentially a 3,000mAh battery.
The Galaxy S10 won’t be available in yellow
Moving over to the regular Galaxy S10, this will be available in a total of four color options once all have been released – blue, white, black, and green. Much like the Galaxy S10e, all will be identical inside thanks to the presence of Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 855 or Samsung’s Exynos 9820.
With this particular offering, though, consumers will be able to choose one of two variants. The first ships with a 6/128GB configuration, much like the Galaxy S10e, while the most expensive option offers a considerable 8GB of RAM and 512GB of storage.
This smartphone also gains a third camera on the rear in the form of a 13-megapixel sensor complete with a telephoto lens. A larger 3,300mAh battery is to be expected too.
Samsung’s Galaxy S10+ should arrive in blue too
Completing Samsung’s flagship series will be the Galaxy S10+, as previously leaked. This model hasn’t been pictured in blue yet but multiple industry insiders have confirmed that such a variant is on the way.
The Galaxy S10 series will be announced on February 20th. Consumers should be available to pre-order the models immediately after the Unpacked event and shipments are slated to begin on March 8th in most global markets.
