Samsung Galaxy S10 Will Have a Completely Unique Design: Leak
Samsung’s upcoming flagship Samsung Galaxy S10 is shaping up to be a radically different phone compared with the S8, S9, and Note series variants.
As per a new leak, S10 might have a small hole cut out in the display for the camera.
The company has filed a patent for its Infinity-O display. The patent has been filed with the World Intellectual Property Office (WIPO). It appears to be a display with rounded corners and a small camera hole at the top left corner.
In the image, Samsung has exhibited two different models, one a little taller than the other. The screens look awfully similar to the Note 9 (Model A) and the S9 (Model B) as the former had more of a rectangular design and the latter had more rounded corners.
Popular leaker and tipster Ben Geskin also mentioned that out of the three Galaxy S10 models, the cheapest one will have the Infinity-O, camera hole display.
Flat “Infinity-O” Display
Side-mounted fingerprint sensor
4+64GB / 6+64GB / 6+128GB

Other rumored specifications of the S10 include a triple camera setup and an in-display fingerprint reader. It will most likely run the next generation Snapdragon 8150 processor with 6-8 GB RAM and 128-512 GB of internal storage.
Samsung Galaxy S10 Will Reportedly Ditch Iris Scanner to Increase Screen-to-Body Ratio
South Korea’s ET News has reiterated persistent rumors that the Samsung Galaxy S10 will skip the iris scanner. According to the report, all three models of the upcoming device will do away with the technology so as to have a better screen-to-body ratio.
As per industry insiders quoted by the report, the only biometric technology present in the Galaxy S10 lineup will be an in-display fingerprint scanner from Qualcomm, making them the first Samsung smartphones to feature the new technology.
