Samsung Galaxy S10 and S10 Plus rumors: What we know so far

Samsung launched the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+, their flagship phones, hardly a month ago. The company has already moved on to the next phone in the series. The next flagship phone, Galaxy S10 and Galaxy S10+, from the South Korean giant reportedly had its design finalised recently. It is going to be the tenth flagship phone in the series. And as is usual with Samsung, when there is a new flagship phone on the way, the company pulls out all the stops. And that would happen with the S10 and S10+ too!

As per reports from company’s home country, the Samsung Galaxy S10 will get the same Infinity Display just like its predecessors. In a way, this is a disappointment for those who were expecting some even more fancy, extravagant re-designing to commemorate the anniversary. So, no foldable display and no notched display for S10 or S10+.

Rumors are that the Galaxy S10 phones would be slightly larger than the Galaxy S9, aiming at 5.8 inches for S10 and 6.3 inches for S10+. It’s also expected that Samsung will further reduce the chin size of the phones to offer larger display and a higher screen-to-body ratio.

Apart from that, the Samsung Galaxy S10 is likely to have an under-display fingerprint sensor, developed by Qualcomm and Synaptics in the US, according to latest leaks from Korea. The phone is likely to feature a front-facing, 3D sensing camera to improve security of face lock and AR Emoji with the help from Israeli Mantis Vision and Korean Camera Modula maker Woodgate.

Samsung has been dropping hints about under-display fingerprint sensor for a long time, but it is not an easy task to achieve for any company. Only China-based Vivo has ever been able to use this technology in their newest smartphone. Korean reports Samsung is currently working to develop the technology.

At the Mobile World Congress 2018, the Samsung mobile chief hinted that the naming scheme of upcoming phones might be altered, but reports claim the next flagship phone is likely to retain the eminent Galaxy name.

Reports claim the production of the Infinity Display panels is likely to begin in November 2018. The 10th installment of Galaxy phones is expected to be launched in early 2019.
