Samsung has also embedded a fingerprint scanner under the display of the S10.

Not just that, but the different price tags that the four versions of Galaxy S10 will make it possible for Samsung fans from all corners of the world to afford to buy a powerful smartphone. They report that the standard version of the Galaxy S10 is codenamed "Beyond".

As far as the other specs are concerned, the Samsung Galaxy A9 has a 6.3-inch full-HD+ Super AMOLED display with minimal bezels. It will roughly be of the same size as this year 5.8-inch S9 model.

Leaks about Samsung's hottest new phones are heating up, with the latest in-depth report revealing a number of details about the Galaxy S10 and "Winner", the codename for the brand's foldable device.

There's no actual date for the Android 9 beta yet, but it is thought to be coming to supporting Samsung devices in early 2019: "Android 9 Pie update is expected to roll out to Samsung Galaxy phones early next year", the company confirmed earlier this week. Reports say that the company is testing the prototypes without the 3.5 mm headphone jack.

Bloomberg said Samsung's foldable phone is now being developed under a secretive codename called 'Winner, ' which is line with previous reports that made the same claim.

As for the Bloomberg report, it doesn't say exactly who the sources are, but does say that the information comes from "people familiar with the matter", so there's a fair chance that at least some of it is accurate.

Samsung has for years talked about introducing a foldable phone. The S10 will likely be the only high-end smartphone with it to come out in the first half of 2019.

The firm is mulling over two prototypes - one of which is longer horizontally, while the other is longer vertically - with designers preferring the portrait model, as it's easier for users to hold than a landscape design. "The display opens 'with a snap" like the Motorola Razr used to, but 'with a smoother feel.' The screen is coated with a film that makes it seem a bit plasticky, which has Samsung concerned because it may not be as glossy as consumers expect. The hinge has recently passed internal tests of folding more than 200,000 times and a small screen will be added to the hinge part to display alarms and messages. This particular model is also tipped to miss out on in-display fingerprint sensor in order to cut down on costs.

There's no reasoning in the report for why Samsung is planning to drop the technology, but it's likely to free up more space for either a larger battery or some new features on the handset.
