Does anyone hope for smaller bezel and under screen fingerprint sensor on the next years flagship? I know I do or at least completely remove the bottom bezel because it has no use or purpose and please samsung don't put a notch dont try and compete with other companys with that dumb "feature" or "design" it's the worst looking thing on a smartphone.
Update: A new leak details the possible specs of the Samsung Galaxy S10's rumored triple-lens camera. Plus, Samsung itself has suggested that the S10 won't have a notch.
The Samsung Galaxy S10 has the potential to be the most exciting phone of 2019, as after the incremental upgrade that was the Samsung Galaxy S9 the South Korean firm is poised for a major overhaul.
The Samsung Galaxy S9 and Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus are strong, but not 5 stars strong, and we’re going to need to see some big changes for the brand to stay on top, especially in the face of fiercer competition from the likes of Apple and Huawei.
We don’t know much about the Galaxy S10 yet, but we are starting to hear a number of rumors, all of which you’ll find below.
And below that you’ll find a wish list of the main things we want - nay, need - from the phone, including an in-screen fingerprint scanner and a fresh design.
The good news is that if early rumors are to be believed we might get at least one of those things.
Cut to the chase What is it? Samsung's next main flagship What will it cost? It's sure to be very expensive When is it out? Probably early 2019 Samsung Galaxy S10 release date and price The Samsung Galaxy S10 launch date is is likely to be in early 2019. More specifically we'll probably see it at MWC 2019, which takes place from February 25-28.
Not only does a leaker claim we'll see it then, but Samsung announced the Galaxy S9 range at MWC 2018, so the 2019 show is the most likely release date.
Samsung doesn’t always announce its Galaxy S flagships there, but recent models have all been announced in the first few months of the year, so we’d be surprised if we don’t see the Samsung Galaxy S10 by the end of March 2019.
Though it could arrive earlier, as we might see it in January at CES 2019 if one rumor is to be believed. That takes place from January 8-11, but that feels too early for such as major announcement, so we'd take this particular Galaxy S10 leak with a fair pinch of salt.
Of course, whenever it is announced you might not be able to buy it straight away.
When it does go on sale it’s sure to cost a lot. There aren’t any Samsung Galaxy S10 price rumors yet, but the Galaxy S9 launched at $719.99 / £739 / AU$1,199, while the Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus went on sale for $840 / £869 / AU$1,349.
We’d expect the Galaxy S10 range will cost at least that much when it does arrive.
Samsung Galaxy S10 design and display Hottest leaks:
Three different screen sizes A bezel-free design A 19:9 aspect ratio and 1440 x 3040 resolution According to Samsung's mobile business chief, DJ Koh, the Samsung Galaxy S10 will have some "very significant" design changes and come in some "amazing" colors.
He didn't get more specific than that, ثبت نام ارشد فراگیر پیام نور but a benchmark for a mystery Samsung phone which could be the S10 points to a 19:9 aspect ratio, which would make it taller than the 18.5:9 Galaxy S9.
Along with that the benchmark suggests a resolution of 1440 x 3040, which would be a slight boost, and there's every chance that to achieve those things Samsung would slim the bezels, fitting a larger, sharper screen into the same size body.
One thing the Galaxy S10 probably won't have though, is a notch, because, as noted by T3, Samsung has taken to Twitter to criticize the notch on the Google Pixel 3 XL, so presumably it won't be going down that route for its next flagship.
We've also seen a photo, possibly showing a prototype of the Samsung Galaxy S10 (though notably the source didn't refer to it by name but did say "this may be a design beyond", and 'Beyond' is believed to be the codename of the Galaxy S10).
The image, which you can see below, shows a handset with a curved screen and almost no bezel on any edge. There seems to be less bezel in fact than we've seen on any other phone, suggesting the front-facing camera may either pop up or be built into the screen.
You can't see much else, but in addition to the power and volume buttons it looks like the Bixby button is making a return - if this photo really is showing the S10 and if nothing changes in the design before launch, which are two big ifs, especially as reputable leaker @OnLeaks has poured cold water on the image, claiming it's fake.
When it comes to the screen though it’s worth noting that there’s sure to be more than one size. In fact, this time around there might be three.
One of these, apparently codenamed 'Beyond 0', is said to have a 5.8-inch screen which might be flat.
That would be the most basic model, but there's also said to be 'Beyond 1', which apparently has a 5.8-inch curved screen, and 'Beyond 2', with a 6.2-inch curved screen.
There’s also said to be differences in the three models’ fingerprint scanners and cameras, which we’ll get to in the relevant sections below.
