New renders of Samsung Galaxy S10 Plus appear online

Before you get excited the event might have included a sneak peek at Samsung's upcoming Galaxy S10, we should say that this probably wasn't the case, considering the number of cameras broadcasting the event.

A small chin will still be present on the Galaxy S10+ which will stick with Samsung's Edge Display and deliver yet another display panel that curves alongside its long edges, as per the same source and previous claims from other industry insiders.

The big question is whether the 5G upgrade will matter in the smartphone market.

The Galaxy S10 Plus will have hole on its display for dual front-facing cameras. It is equipped with a Type-C interface, retains a 3.5mm headphone jack, and has a dedicated Bixby button.

Trump says next meeting with North Korea's Kim likely in early 2019
When asked Saturday if he would ever host Kim in the United States, Trump replied: "At some point, yeah". He said he would deliver the message if Kim visits Seoul this year.

In terms of hardware, you can expect Samsung to feature a newer Snapdragon 8150 processor for the USA market, while the rest of the world including Malaysia will be getting their Exynos 9820 chip.

With the addition of the hole in the display, it looks like Samsung has managed to give the Galaxy S10 Plus a almost bezel-less look without including a notch. Other novelties include One UI, a brand-new Android implementation from Samsung that's meant to replace Samsung Experience 9.5 (which itself succeeded TouchWiz several years back). Last month, Verizon claimed a "world first" when it completed data transmission to a smartphone on a commercial, standards-based 5G network using a Motorola Device and Samsung's 5G New Radio (NR) kit.

Next year will usher in the 5G smartphone era, and the latest device maker to tip its hand is Samsung: the company has announced plans with Verizon to release a flagship 5G smartphone in the first half of 2019.

5G mobile networks are already active in Samsung's home turf of South Korea.
