Samsung is all set to launch its Galaxy S10 series on February 20. The Galaxy 10 series is expected to arrive in three versions: Galaxy S10, Galaxy S10 Plus and Galaxy S10e. The Galaxy S10e (not S10E) will be the most affordable and is being referred to as Samsung’s answer to the iPhone Xr.
Though the South Korean giant is yet to announce the smartphone, many reports suggest it to come with a flat display instead of a curved one. But luckily we don’t have to guess anymore as a coupled of leaked photos of the Galaxy S10e surfaced online today.
The leaked photos of the Galaxy S10e reveal that it will sport an Infinity-O notch at the top right corner that houses the selfie camera. One of the images shows a ruler placed close to the hole showing its diameter roughly measure 0.5 cm (5 mm) which is pretty big.
The punched out hole looks invisible at black backgrounds but looks very distinguishable on while and bright backgrounds. Samsung is being clever to include black lockscreen wallpapers in their marketing photos which do a great job in hiding it.
The Galaxy S10e will feature a 5.8 inch display and have a side-mounted fingerprint sensor which will help to keep the cost in control. The leaked photos didn’t show the sensor but another photo posted by tipster Roland Quant of Winfuture.de shows that the scanner will be embedded in the power button. The button is placed a little higher than normal which may be uncomfortable to some users.

Other specs of the handset are yet to be confirmed but the Galaxy S10 and the Galaxy S10 Plus is expected to be powred by Qualcomm Snapdragon/Exynos 9820 and have a triple camera setup in the rear. They will also come with an in-screen fingerprint sensor that uses ultrasonic waves. The Galaxy S10 series launches in just a few weeks and we will be covering more from the launch event.
