Til now we have witnessed some significant Samsung S10 leaks that have given away some key features of the phone. From the confirmation of headphone jack to triple-cam setup on S10 and S10+. We have also had confirmation of dual front cameras embedded into the display of S10+ variant of the phone. However, no one had anticipated the most advanced and feature intensive variant of the S10 lineup. Samsung Galaxy S10 Beyond X is allegedly the top of the line variant of the S10 lineup and the only Samsung phone to support 5G connectivity.

Following the chain of events, the only confirmed models of the Samsung S10 lineup until now have been: SM-G970 (Galaxy S10 Lite), SM-G973 (Galaxy S10) and SM-G975 (Galaxy S10 Plus). However, there were some rumors here and there regarding this mysterious variant of the S10 lineup which no one had sufficient reason to believe yet a few articles did pop up on the internet albeit without sufficient evidence.
Now finally, we have more reason to believe that such a model does exist, and for now, it is being referred to as Samsung Galaxy S10 Beyond X. Following is a tweet by the credible Twitter handle of IceUniverse, who has mentioned the display size and the 5G feature of the phone in a tweet. At 6.7 inch, this will be Samsung biggest phone display till date.
Beyond X is Samsung's first 5G mobile phone. It uses a 6.7-inch screen and will be available in South Korea and the United States. It adds a ToF sensor to the front and rear. This is the top version of the Galaxy S10. The 5G LOGO is very cool.

He has also mentioned a 5G logo, however, the tweet has no image attached to it and maybe he will update it in some time. The Tweet also mentions TOF sensors which stand for “Time of Flight”. Apparently, a TOF sensor is used to measure distance by calculating the time it takes for a light signal to travel to and back from an intended target. We are yet to find out what role this feature would play in the smartphone’s photography functionality.
According to another source, the model name for Samsung Galaxy S10 Beyond X is going to be SM-G977. However, this has yet to be confirmed by Samsung. As for availability, the only two regions that are confirmed for now are South Korea and North America. There is no mention of a European or Asian release of the phone right now.
