Since the Galaxy S8 came along, Samsung hasn't offered any compelling reason for consumers to opt for the smaller of the Galaxy S flagships other than easier one-handed usage. Neither the Galaxy S8 nor the Galaxy S9 match up to their Plus counterparts, with the divide between the S9 and S9+ especially wide.
Next year, the smallest Galaxy S10, dubbed the Galaxy S10 Lite, may lose out on the triple rear camera and dual front camera setups, and possibly specs such as base storage as well. But our latest information suggests it may at least come in a unique color unavailable for the other models.
No yellow for the big Galaxy S10 models
In our exclusive report about Galaxy S10 colors a few weeks back, we had revealed that the device would be available in black, white, yellow and green. We have now obtained information on color options for each of the Galaxy S10 models, including the ceramic variant that might also be the top-end variant with 5G support and six total cameras. And it seems only the S10 Lite will be offered in yellow, along with white, black, green, and blue.
Other than yellow, the other two Galaxy S10 variants (the 6.1-inch and 6.4-inch ones) will have the same paint jobs as the Lite model. And yes, some or all of these may be gradient colors, and Samsung could launch new color options a few months after the Galaxy S10 debuts, just as it does with every flagship smartphone. As for the ceramic variant of the Galaxy S10, it will come in only black and white.
Here's the info in table form:
|Galaxy S10 Lite (SM-G970x)||Yellow, white, black, green, blue|
|Galaxy S10 (SM-G973x)||White, black, green, blue|
|Galaxy S10+ (SM-G975x)||White, black, green, blue|
|Galaxy S10 Ceramic (SM-G975FC)||White, black|
Nothing is set in stone (or ceramic) just yet
As usual, we have to mention that while we trust our sources, there is always a chance some of this info may turn out to be wrong or a bit different from reality. With Samsung preparing as many as four Galaxy S10 variants, it's even more important to have the proverbial salt container handy.
From things like the number of cameras on each model to whether the Galaxy S10 Lite will have a flat screen, there's a lot that is changing with every other new leak. We are seeing more believable leaks as we move closer to 2019 and towards Samsung's Galaxy S10 launch, but there's still a chance some of our exclusive reports may not be 100 percent accurate.
