New leak may show some of the first live Galaxy S10+ photos the world has ever seen Christmas Day brings us more Galaxy S10 leaks, which shouldn't come as much of a surprise considering how much new info we've been learning on a daily basis lately. First up, we’ve got images that feature alleged Galaxy S10+ screen protectors created by an accessory company using information from Samsung’s factories that is believed to be accurate. We saw the same screen protectors in previous leaks, but this time a well-known leaker says they’re a perfect representation of what to expect from the Galaxy S10+ when it’s unveiled in two months.

Samsung's rumored Galaxy Sport watch might ditch the rotating bezel

Samsung isn't done refreshing its smartwatches just because the Galaxy Watch is on shelves, although its next update might be contentious. A 91mobilessource claims to have an image of the Galaxy Sport (just a tentative name), and its most telling change is what isn't there -- namely, the rotating bezel you've seen on Samsung wristwear for years. It's not clear how you'd control the watch beyond the touchscreen and the usual buttons, although this doesn't rule out a tweaked on-screen interface or capacitive touch on the case.

If the rendered image is accurate, you will get a slicker device in return for the change in control scheme. The watch would be sleeker and posher-looking (though still very much a fitness watch), with a brushed-metal finish and a matching silicone strap. It's likely to have familiar innards, including GPS, a heart rate sensor and NFC for Samsung Pay.

Yep, that rotating bezel we loved so much on the Samsung Galaxy Watch could be omitted, if the renders are accurate. That would mean it would need to cut costs, and the complex rotating bezel mechanism seems like an obvious sacrifice. Whatever the reason, if the leaked release date is true

You might not have to wait long to see the Galaxy Sport. The FCC and other regulators have already cleared the device, and Samsung is poised to hold its first Unpacked event of the year on February 20th. There's a real possibility you can pick up this fitness watch alongside a Galaxy S10 as winter comes to a close.
