Samsung Galaxy S10 Release Date, Features: Leaked Photo Confirms Thinner Bezels, Camera Hole Design

From the Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9+ trailer | Photo by Samsung via YouTube

A recently leaked photo might have provided smartphone fans with the first-ever look on Samsung Galaxy S10’s design. And it already promises remarkable changes and improvements.

The image came from reputable mobile leaker and reporter Evan Blass through his Twitter page. The photo suggests Samsung Galaxy S10 will sport much thinner bezels, which are most noticeable in the top and bottom edges of the device. But the bigger surprise is in the design for the front-facing camera.

Samsung Galaxy S10’s predecessor’s S8 and S9 had quite a wider top bezel to house the selfie camera and other sensors. The upcoming device, however, ditches that setup and adopts a camera hole design placed in the top right part of the screen to house the camera, according to the leak. Meanwhile, the earpiece is pushed a little farther and almost to the top-most edge of the device.

TechCrunch also commented how the leaked photo confirmed Samsung has completely skipped the notch trend. The South Korean smartphone maker refused to add a notch on any of the premium smartphones it introduced in 2018. The Samsung Galaxy S10, which is expected to be launched this year, opted for the camera hole design instead of the notch.

Blass also revealed other details about the Samsung Galaxy S10 including its internal codename “Beyond 1.” The same TechCrunch report suggests that a “Beyond 2” smartphone is in the pipeline as well referring to the Samsung Galaxy S10+. The company is also expected to introduce a mid-range, cheaper model like Apple did with iPhone XR.

There is a chance for Samsung Galaxy S10 to be unveiled sometime within Q1 of 2019. Other details on its specs and features are still under wraps. But another leaked information claimed Samsung gave much attention to improving the upcoming smartphone’s battery.

Various leakers said Samsung Galaxy S10 will sport a graphene-based battery allowing for the device to fully recharge within a very short period -- expected to be a first in smartphone history. Blass also reported that the upcoming smartphone will adopt a technology that makes it practically a source of power for “compatible devices like handsets and watches” that support wireless charging.
