Samsung is gearing up to launch its next batch of flagship smartphones — Samsung Galaxy S10 series. Ahead of the launch of Galaxy S10 early next year, we have started getting information related to the phone, including specs and features.
During its Samsung Developers Conference, the company unveiled its experimental notch designs — Infinity-U, Infinity-V, and Infinity-O. Now, a patent application for a smartphone design reveals what the company is planning for the Infinity-O type design.
The patent application for the Infinity-O design shows a punch-hole type cutout for the phone’s front-facing camera placed in the top-left corner. As per the reports, this could be the design for the upcoming Samsung flagship, the Galaxy S10.
The patent submission shows several images and diagrams proposed for the design of Galaxy S10, with different notch designs. However, it seems that the design with the Infinity-O display is the focus of the South Korean giant.
In the diagrams, the Galaxy S10 is showcased in various shapes and form factors, including phones with curved and flat displays as well as squared and rounded corners. At this point in time, the confirmed design for the Galaxy S10 is not yet, but we now know what to expect from Samsung going forward.
The Samsung Galaxy S10 is expected to come in three variants, carrying model numbers SM-G970F, SM-G973F & SM-G975F. Two of them will feature a 5.8-inch display while the third one will be the successor of the Galaxy S9 Plus.
The Galaxy S10 will have three cameras on the rear just like the Galaxy A7 (2018) however, the sensors will be different. The S10 will have a standard + wide + telephoto setup, the same arrangement that Huawei adopted for the P20 Pro.
The Galaxy S10 Lite, on the other hand, is expected to come with flat display and side-mounted fingerprint sensor. The S10 lineup will adopt the newly introduced Samsung One UI based on Android 9 Pie operating system.
While the launch date is not yet confirmed, reports indicate that Samsung could launch the Galaxy S10 series in February during the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, with sales starting from early March.
