Galaxy S10 E without in-display fingerprint reader

We already know that Samsung plans to unveil three new S series phones this year, and until now we thought that the devices would be named Galaxy S10, Galaxy S10+ and Galaxy S10 Lite. As the launch date is approaching, we're getting more and more rumors leaking out, and the last one suggests that the cheapest phone of the bunch will most likely be named Galaxy S10 E. Also, the same leak shows this phone will come without an in-display fingerprint scanner, most likely to reduce production costs and make the product cheaper.

Hopefully this measure will reduce the price to an affordable level, and not in the way as Apple has done with their XR which was still way too expensive. Still, the S10 E's main competitor is exactly the XR, so on that ground it can be assumed that the price will be similar. We also know that this version will much cheaper than the S10 and the S10+.


Specs-wise, the S10 E will have a 5.8" display, it will have a bezel-less look without a notch. The selfie camera will be placed inside the Infinity-O display.
