Samsung Galaxy S10 family is all set to reveal their new smartphones, before which, in a purported leaked render, they have shown off the smartphones wrapped in transparent cases. The leak showed most of the features of the much-anticipated Samsung phones which are set to be shown at the Galaxy Unpacked event, that is scheduled for February 20. The render basically shows the normal Galaxy S10 model, along with the Galaxy S10E aka Galaxy S10 Lite and the Galaxy S10+. During the development, the normal Galaxy S10 with model number SM-G973N has been seen on the Geekbench website. The model looks like it will come powered with an Exynos 9820 SoC, instead of the Snapdragon 855 SoC, and will be available for North America-bound variants.
With respect to the Samsung Galaxy S10 leaks and rumors, on Saturday, tipster Evan Blass posted a press render on his Twitter account that goes by the name @evleaks. The render showed that the Galaxy S10 family was encased in transparent cases. Blass went on to say that the models which had been showcased in the render were that of the Galaxy S10E aka Galaxy S10 Lite, Galaxy S10, and Galaxy S10+.

The Galaxy S10E, which was initially rumored to be known as the Galaxy S10 Lite, in the render looks like it will have a dual rear camera set up along with an LED flash and a heart-rate sensor. On the other hand, the regular Galaxy S10 model and the Galaxy S10+ might come with a triple rear camera set up along and the same LED flash and heart-rate sensor modules.
One of the notable differences from the existing Galaxy S9-series models is the lack of a rear fingerprint sensor on the Galaxy S10 and Galaxy S10+ models. It is likely that Samsung will opt for an in-display fingerprint sensor instead of a traditional fingerprint sensor on the rear. The Galaxy S10E, however, seems to have a side-mounted fingerprint sensor.
The leaked renders showed that it will have a punch-hole display panel which Samsung calls as the Infinity-O Display. But the Galaxy S10E and Galaxy S10 look like they will sport a single front shooter, and the Plus variant was seen with a dual selfie camera. A cutout was also seen which can be related to 3.5mm headphone jack.
The Galaxy S10 variant that comes with model number SM-G973N has also been listed on Geekbench. The benchmark site showed the new model carrying an Exynos 9820 SoC, that will be the successor of the existing Exynos 9810SoC. The listing showed the presence of 8GB of RAM for the Galaxy S10 variant. In addition to this, it also highlighted a single-core score of 4,382 and a multi-core score of 9,570.
Earlier during this week, the Geekbench listing showed a Galaxy S10+ on the Web. That was prominently for the handset with model number SM-G975U which comes with a Snapdragon 855 SoC. It indicated that the smartphone will get a 3,413 in single-core performance and 10,256 in multi-core performance.
Notably, it isn’t fair to judge the actual performance merely from the unconfirmed benchmark scores available on the Geekbench database since these may be coming from the early prototypes. Samsung could add software-side optimisations before the formal launch to boost the performance of the Galaxy S10 models.
It looks like Samsung will showcase its first foldable phone, the Galaxy F as well as the first 5G phone, which is the Galaxy S10 X during the event.
