Huge Samsung Galaxy S10 leak confirms 'hole-punch' camera, no notch and three lenses - but will one be 48MP?

This is the big Samsung Galaxy S10 camera phone news we have been waiting for. A massive leak of information seemingly confirms details of what we are going to see on the Samsung Galaxy S10 with regards to cameras and beyond. 

UPDATE: The Samsung Galaxy S10 has been revealed at the Galaxy Unpacked launch. You can read all about it in our Hands on: Samsung Galaxy S10 camera review

According to new information by Gizmodo UK, the phone is set to have the hole-punch display - that was revealed on the Samsung Galaxy A8s - and will follow in the footsteps of the Huawei Mate 20 Pro and have three lenses on its rear. 

While three lenses have indeed been confirmed, according to the report, what these lenses will be has not. Earlier leaks have suggested that they will be standard, wide and tele but there's still no news as to whether one of them will use a 48MP sensor. 

Given, the Honor Play 20 has one and Xiaomi has been teasing its own 48MP camera, there will be certainly be disappointment from Samsung fans if this isn't the case. 

The confirmation of the hole-punch selfie camera is a significant one, however. The Infinity-O display was only shown off earlier this week and its inclusion means that this will be a phone with no notch. 

Three S10 models

If that wasn't enough, it seems that earlier leaks of three different variants of the S10 are indeed true. There is set to be a: 5.8-inch, 6.1-inch and 6.4-inch screen. 

The 6.1-inch screen version will have up 512GB worth of storage but if you want more then the Samsung Galaxy S10 Plus will have up to 1TB of storage! 

If you want this phone, though, it will be one of the most expensive on the market with a reported price of £1399.

The Samsung Galaxy S10 release date is also closer than we initially thought. Samsung usually tie the launch of its premium handsets around Mobile World Congress in Barcelona - which happens beginning of March. The Samsung Galaxy S10 looks to be announced 20 February and on sale 8 March.  

The Samsung Galaxy S9 is riding high in our best camera phone list, so we have high hopes that the S10's imaging capabilities.
