The Samsung Galaxy S10 is due to be unveiled officially on 20 February 2019. But it seems that a few people have taken a very clear peek behind the curtains. So much so that, barring any sudden changes, there may not be anything new left for Samsung to officially reveal.
In a series of tweets by XDA’s Max Weinbach (@mweinbachXDA), it looks like there will be four variations of the phone. Aside from the standard Galaxy S10 and the Galaxy S10+, there will be a Galaxy S10 Lite, as well as a Galaxy S10+ 5G. Because there are four variations of the phone, the spec combination can get pretty confusing as well.
This down is more rumors than facts I know but I think its accurate:
Ultra Wide: 16MP, F1.9, 123 degrees, no auto focus or OIS
Normal: 12MP, F1.5/2.4, 78 degrees, auto focus and OIS
Telephoto (S10+ only): 13MP, F2.4, 45 degrees, auto focus and OIShttps://t.co/FgfoGhKP3W

To start, there are apparently two variants to the rear camera setup. One involves a 12MP f/1.5-2.4 dual aperture sensor with autofocus and OIS, going with a 123-degree ultra-wide 16MP f/1.9 sensor. Another variant, reportedly only available on the S10+ and S10+ 5G, comes with a third sensor – a telephoto 13MP lens with autofocus and OIS as well.
And then there’s the memory and storage configurations. The S10 Lite supposedly sports 4GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage. The S10 itself has 6GB of RAM, with a choice between 128GB and 256GB of internal storage. The S10+ is where it gets a little messy, with either 6GB or 8GB of RAM, and three choices of storage options – 128GB, 256GB and 512GB. Going to the extreme end of things is the S10+ 5G, supposedly with 12GB of RAM and 1TB of internal storage.
S10 Lite: 128GB
S10+ 5G: 256GB/512GB/1TB
Folding phone (not 100% sure): 512GB/1TB

Weinbach himself says that all this came from three different sources, and that this is a “true grain of salt moment.” In the end, it’s probably best to wait for the Galaxy Unpacked event coming at the end of February. Assuming these spec figures are accurate, it would also cost quite a lot, especially for the top-of-the-line model.
