Samsung Galaxy S10+ spotted in the wild

Samsung Galaxy S10+ spotted in the wild

A user on Reddit has posted an image of what appears to be a Samsung Galaxy S10+ being used in public, presumably by a Samsung employee. 

The phone is in a case so it's hard to tell what it looks like, but you can easily see a distinct pill-shaped camera cut-out in the top right of the screen.

Another user in the thread, who claims to be a Samsung employee working on Bixby, confirmed that the phone shown is the S10+. His comments are now deleted but here's what he said:

This is the 10+. Look like a worker on bus to/from Suwon campus. He has the security case on (flip cover, folded corner on left), but he removed the security software that puts watermark/employee+deviceId on screen. Lot of trouble for that.

The same user also said that the phone seems lighter than the Note9 while being around the same size, and that they don't notice the camera hole at all when using the device. He also said that facial recognition is typically faster than the in-screen fingerprint scanner, especially as the latter can apparently be hard to find, as the interface doesn’t always guide you to the right spot. Finally, they also said that the S10+ does not have an iris scanner, which would confirm previous rumors.

The Galaxy S10+ is scheduled to be unveiled on 20th February at an Unpacked event in San Francisco.
