    Samsung will be pulling out all the stops for the Galaxy S10. We hear that it's going to offer one of the models with a ceramic back in Black and White colors. Samsung is reportedly working on four different models of the Galaxy S10 – its 10th Anniversary flagship smartphone.

    The SM-G970x will be the entry-level option with a 5.8-inch display and single rear camera. It may not have an in-display fingerprint sensor. In our recent exclusive about the Galaxy S10, we mentioned that it would be available in Black, White, Yellow and Green colors.

    The SM-G973 and SM-G975 will be the two premium options with 5.8-inch and 6.44-inch displays with a dual and triple rear camera, respectively. They're the ones that will be offered with gradient colors.

    Another model of the Galaxy S10 that Samsung is reportedly preparing would be an absolute beast. It will feature a 6.7-inch display, a quad rear and dual front camera with 5G support. It will certainly be the top-of-the-line model possibly 512GB of internal storage. The SM-G975FC model of the Galaxy S10 may also be the one to feature a ceramic back in Black and White colors.

    Samsung will be a bit late to the ceramic party. Xiaomi has been using it on some smartphones since 2016. The Essential Phone is another device with a ceramic back. This material offers a more premium look and feel. The internationally recognized Mohs scale of mineral hardness places it slightly lower than diamond and sapphire. This means that no mineral can scratch the ceramic back except for diamond and sapphire. The microcrystal zirconium oxide ceramic material certainly befits a premium smartphone.

    It's still early days so things could change before everything is finalized. The Galaxy S10 is due to be launched in February next year. Its 5G-capable model may not arrive until March.
