Arriving in model numbers of SM-G970U, SM-G973U, and SM-G975U, the Galaxy S10 will have three versions a source told Gizmodo. Aside from the regular version, there will also be a Plus version and a flat version.
These three versions include support for the 802.11ax WiFi or the WiFi 6. This new Wi-Fi standard offers better WiFi experience since it is easier on battery life and it offers faster speeds and more efficient network, according to Droid Life.

On November 13, 2018, Evan Blass took to Twitter to reveal that the Galaxy S10 will be ultrasonic. It will read the ridges of a finger in 3D using ultrasound waves, which is much more secure than the 2D picture gathered by an optical scanner by bouncing light off the finger.
With a feature they’re calling Powershare, the Galaxy S10 will be able to wirelessly charge other devices. This is similar to that of the Huawei Mate 20 Pro.
Called the Infinity O display, the hole-punch design featured in the Galaxy A8 will also be featured in the Galaxy S10. A hole in the front of the screen contains the selfie camera.
