Testing of Samsung's next flagship smartphone, the Galaxy S10 is in progress and someone working in the factory where the new device is being made has snapped a few sneaky shots and shared them with the world. The front camera hole in the screen could be a lone 24-MP selfie camera. Pre-orders in China have begun ahead of a release just before Christmas, but there's no word on pricing and availability in the USA or Europe just yet - we'll bring you more on that when we find out. This selfie camera has an aperture of f/2.0. The smartphone company had announced the coming of the Galaxy A8s - the first phone with Infinity-O display - at the company's Developers Conference last month.

The Galaxy A8s uses an expansive 6.4-inch Full HD+ display. The smartphone comes with a 3,400mAh battery and while Samsung has taken jibes at Apple for removing the headphone jack, the Galaxy A8s too skips the feature - in fact, it is the first Samsung phone to do so. On the software side, it runs on the Android 8.1 Oreo out-of-the-box with Samsung's homebred UI skin loaded on top.

Samsung is actually rumored to announce more than two Galaxy S10 smartphones in 2019, and Evan Blass, a well-known tipster, has just shared some Galaxy S10 sketches via Twitter. There's also no place for a fingerprint scanner.

The camera at the back has a 24MP+10MP+5MP combination.

The phone supports 6GB or 8GB of RAM and features 128GB of storage.

-The Galaxy A8s comes with a glossy finish body with Aluminum frame, which gives the phone a premium touch.

All of the A8 designs further strongly suggest that Samsung might have a surprise up its sleeve when it unveils 10-anniversary Galaxy S10s. As of now, there's no information whether or not the phone will come to India.
