Check out this Samsung Galaxy S10 plus concept teaser video it's purely fan based material but it's still pretty cool.

Consisting of four cameras on the rear of the device, which would see the Galaxy S10+ go one better than the likes of the three camera-toting Huawei P20 Pro, and in inclusion of a 7nm processor and 5G connectivity is also a teaser but though as we now know from the new Exynos reveal they might not be all so accurate. We’ve come to the conclusion that whatever 2019 brings, Samsung are on top of their game this year with the Galaxy S10 releases and we have all got something to look forward to in the future.
