This is because the Galaxy S10 Plus will feature an in-display fingerprint scanner.

MySmartPrice emphasised the added camera could force the Galaxy S10+ to arrive with a "pill-shaped display hole", rather than the single and smaller circular cutout expected on some other Galaxy S10 hardware.

Samsung is working on at least four different variants of the Galaxy S10 - a 5.8-inch S10, 6.2-inch S10+ and a new budget model - all of which will have only one front-facing camera.

The announcement by the companies may point to a 5G-capable Galaxy S10 that would be exclusive to Verizon.

Not much is known about the Galaxy S10 but there are many reliable leaks to go on. What's missing from the back is a conventional fingerprint reader which Samsung is now said to have moved beneath the display of its next Android flagship. There's still no indication that the colors in question will be launching in other markets but after Huawei, LG, and several other smartphone makers saw success with gradient smartphone finishes, Samsung may be willing to start experimenting with the thereof on a global scale as well.

Samsung is looking to get a first-mover advantage in 5G smartphones, with rival Apple reportedly planning to sit out of the game until 2020. There's no information on the pricing and availability details for the Huawei Nova 4 just yet, so stay tuned for more updates.
