Over the past few weeks, we have seen multiple press renders of the Galaxy S10, giving us a glimpse at the design language of the upcoming flagship. Recently, another press render has appeared online and it shows the Galaxy S10+ in ceramic black, which many believe will the top-end model with a different finish.
German site WinFuture has leaked a press render which it claims to that of the ceramic black Galaxy S10+. In the picture (above), it’s being compared to the regular Prism black finish. While the differences are minimalistic, there’s a certain aura around the exclusive ceramic back cover.
Ceramic material on a smartphone isn’t a new phenomenon. Xiaomi, Essential, and OnePlus have all used the special ceramic material on their smartphones. Ceramic should make the Galaxy S10+ scratch resistant but also enhance the look and feel of the flagship phone.
It’s being said that the Galaxy S10+ ceramic variant will be limited to certain markets owing to its high price. Many believe the top-end variant of the Galaxy S10 could be priced 1500 Euro and $1700 in Europe and the US, respectively. Also, this variant would come only come with 12GB RAM and 1TB of internal storage.
