A few hours later, another tipster who goes by Ice Universe posted an image showing transparent back covers of the Galaxy S10, S10 Lite and S10+ along their screen sizes and battery capacity. The Lite model will house a 3,100mAh battery, while the regular Galaxy S10 will get a 3,500mAh capacity and the Plus-sized version will house a large 4,000mAh battery like last year’s Galaxy Note 9.
Additionally, while the Galaxy S10 Lite and the regular S10 are expect to come with a single front camera, the Plus model is to come with dual front-facing cameras, so we expect to see a pill-shaped cut out on the display to accommodate two sensors. A render (as shown above) by a concept designer Ben Geskin shows how the display hole on the S10+ will look different to the other two variants.
