For the first time, live images of the Samsung Galaxy S10 and S10 Plus have surfaced, revealing two visually stunning flagships. Notable features include a triple rear camera setup on the two phones, dual selfie shooters on the S10+, and a headphone jack on both. An in-display fingerprint reader is also alluded to.

Samsung is set to unveil its S10 phones on February 20. The devices are some of the most anticipated in recent history, and we’ve received all sorts of renders and leaks about them. For the first time, though, authentic-looking live images of the phones have surfaced, giving us the most vivid view so far of the S10 and S10+. 

The images confirmed most of the details we’ve heard so far. For one, both phones will sport Samsung’s Infinity-O display, which is another term for the punch-hole. Unlike the Honor View 20, however, the hole will be located at the top right corner.

Going by the images, the hole isn’t particularly small. At least, not smaller than what we’ve seen from competitors. The S10 has a circular punch hole that, like the View 20’s, isn’t symmetrical with the display curve. A bit off-putting, we’d say. 

The S10+ has a punch-hole that looks somewhat like a pill. The S10+ sports two selfie cameras—as opposed to the S10’s one—and the two camera punch holes overlap to give that pill shape. Like with the S10, it isn’t symmetrical with the display borders, but it does look better. Of course, that shape comes with the disadvantage of pushing the network status bar icons inwards, which looks a bit crappy.

At the back of the devices are a triple rear camera setup, aligned horizontally. Right next to those are what appear to be LED flashes. There is no fingerprint reader on the back, meaning that we could be getting an in-display fingerprint reader as the rumors said.

Going down to the bottom of the device: There's a speaker grille present. Like the S9 phones, we expect the S10 duo to feature stereo speakers. The second speakers will likely be at the top of the phone. There’s a USB Type-C port next to that, and just after that is, yes, a 3.5mm headphone jack. Rejoice, audiophiles.

There were rumors that the jack could be missing on the S10 but it’s good to see those finally put to bed. Hopefully, the Note 10 still keeps the jack.
