Leaked Galaxy S10 Images Shows off a Notch-Free Design With a Hole-Punch Camera

By Tom Pritchard on at

We've already seen and heard a fair bit about the Samsung Galaxy S10, including images that seem to show off a phone with two front-facing cameras surrounded by a notch. Well the good news is that a brand new image has leaked, and there isn't a notch in sight. Instead Samsung is, as expected, punching a hole in the screen for the camera - much like the newly revealed Galaxy A8.

This images comes from Evan Blass, who is probably the unofficial king of smartphone leakers these days, featuring what's officially called the 'Infinity O' display.

This is the 'Beyond 1', which according to previous leaks is supposed to be the bog-standard S10 complete with the curved Edge display. Meanwhile there's also supposed to be the Beyond 2, which is the S10 Plus, and the Beyond 0 which is presumably the cheaper, flat-screened model we talked about before Christmas. Plus there are 5G devices coming later on in the year, though it's unclear whether they'll hit the UK anytime soon.

The phone looks pretty much as expected. The Infinity O display means the forehead has been trimmed down quite a lot compared to the Galaxy S9, but there's still a bit of a chin at the bottom. But at least it's not as big as the one on the Pixel 3 XL, right? Blass also reiterates what we reported about the phone being able to wirelessly charge other devices - just like Huawei's Mate 20 Pro. So that's going to be a big feature in future, and maybe Apple will do something to make up for the fact AirPower seems to be pure vaporware.

We don't have long to wait and see if this picture is legit, and whether any of the rumours and leaks we've heard about the S10 are true. The phone is expected to be officially announced close to MWC, which kicks off at the end of next month. More as we have it. [Evan Blass via The Verge]
