An image of what's said to be Samsung's forthcoming entry-level model, the Galaxy S10E, in a shade of yellow that calls to mind the palette Apple used for its iPhone XR.

Speaking of Apple -- Samsung may have developed new wireless earbuds to compete with the AirPods, and they could debut alongside the Galaxy S10 on Feb. 20.

Galaxy S10 Plus with in-screen fingerprint scanner

The Galaxy S10 is expected to have a fingerprint sensor embedded in its display. The less expensive S10 Essential may have a different type of fingerprint scanner, however, positioned on the phone's side rather than in the display.

Triple camera array on the Galaxy S10

For months, we heard about the numerous cameras coming to the Galaxy S10 -- including up to four on the back and two more on the front, at least on the Plus model. But most of the recent images seen show three cameras on the back.

We've also seen multiple images that the Galaxy S10's rumored hole punch camera -- and an elongated version on the Galaxy S10 Plus.

This image was posted by tipster Evan Blass, who claims it's an early picture of the Samsung Galaxy S10 in the wild. If true, it's one of the first non-rendered images of the Galaxy S10 we've seen.

Infinity-O display

Samsung revealed its new "Infinity-O" display at a developer conference (seen third from the left). The design features a punch-hole style cutout for the front facing camera. Rumors say that this display may come to the Galaxy S10.

Samsung Galaxy A8S

The first phone to officially get the Infinity-O display is the Samsung Galaxy A8S (seen here). If the rumors are true, the front of the Galaxy S10 could look a lot like the Galaxy A8S.

Galaxy S10 Plus

There may also be a larger Galaxy S10 Plus model, as with previous Galaxy S generations. This plus-size variant is rumored to come with two front cameras instead of one, which would make the front of the phone look a little different, as shown here by phone tipster Ice Universe.

Phone-renderer Steve H.McFly (@OnLeaks) collaborated with 91Mobiles to create a 360-degree video of the Galaxy S10 Plus based on rumors. You can watch it here.

Galaxy S10 Lite

It's rumored that the S10 lineup may include an affordable Galaxy S10 Lite option as well. Ice Universe created this mockup to show what the Galaxy S10 Lite could look like (with no curved edges, thicker bezels, etc.).

Here's another concept render of the Galaxy S10 Lite, this time made by a case maker and shared by Ice Universe.

In-display fingerprint reader

Samsung is also rumored to put an in-display fingerprint reader on the Galaxy S10, a first for the Galaxy S line. If this is true, the back of the phone won't have a physical fingerprint reader. A render from OnLeaks depicts this on the Galaxy S10 Plus. It also shows four rear cameras.

Headphone jack?

This purported Galaxy S10 case was shared by Ice Universe. In the video you can see there's a hole for the 3.5mm headphone jack. Does that mean the Galaxy S10 will keep the jack?

Galaxy S10 mockup

This isn't a real-life picture of the S10 Plus, it's an Oppo Find X that Ice Universe altered to look like a Galaxy S10 Plus. Still, the phone looks pretty sweet.

Samsung's One UI over Android

Samsung unveiled One UI, its new smartphone user interface, in November. Samsung confirmed with CNET that this UI will come to future phones in the coming year. That would extend to the Galaxy S10, influencing the way the phone's apps and menus look. One UI runs over Android Pie (Android 9) and higher.

Galaxy S10, S9 and iPhone XS Max

Geskin also posted a comparison shot showing the potential size and design differences of the Galaxy S10 next to the Galaxy S9 and iPhone XS Max. Again, this is based solely on rumors.

Galaxy S10 and S10 Plus

Here Geskin adds Samsung's Settings menu to his S10 and S10 Plus renders. These renders show how the status bar could look next to the punch-hole camera.

Galaxy S10 with two front-facing cameras

This render by Geskin adds a little more detail to the S10 vs. iPhone XS Max comparison, including a wider opening for the Galaxy S10's two front-facing cameras, if that rumor holds water.
