Olixar's Galaxy S10 Case Leak Gives Us Best Look Yet At Samsung's Flagship Phone
It will probably still be several weeks until Samsung officially announces its Galaxy S10 series, which could consist of three separate handsets. Leaks and rumors have been commonplace leading up to the launch. However, a case maker may have provided the best reveal yet of what all three Galaxy S10 smartphones will look like.
Olixar, a maker of "premium smartphone and tablet accessories from cases to pocket sized selfie poles" (according to the company's own description), has already made available a range of Galaxy S10 cases for pre-order. These consist of hard shell cases (ArmourDillo), flexible gel cases (FlexiShield and Ultra-Thin)), and bumper cases (NovaShield).

The folks at GSMArena spotted cases for the 5.8-inch Galaxy S10 Lite, 6.1-inch Galaxy S10, and 6.4-inch Galaxy S10 Plus, though at the time of this writing, we're only seeing cases for the standard Galaxy S10.
In any event, Olixar's images seemingly confirm the rumored punch-hole design for the front camera, with the Galaxy S10 Plus wielding dual front cameras. They also show triple camera arrangements on the rears of the Galaxy S10 Lite and Galaxy S10, and a quad camera setup on the rear of the Galaxy S10 Plus.
For the most part, these are consistent with previous leaks. It looks as though on the triple camera setups that there will be a main shooter in the middle, flanked by a telephoto lens and an ultra-wide angle lens. On the Galaxy S10 Plus, the fourth camera lens is probably a depth sensing camera, assuming the leak is accurate.
The cases themselves are not the interesting thing here, though for anyone wondering, they range in price from $5.49 to $10.99. We should also mention that the case renders could be placeholders by Olixar based on the many leaks and rumors to date. In other words, take the images with a grain of salt.
