Samsung's radical Infinity-O design on Galaxy S10+ confirmed
So far, several leaks and renders have tipped the Infinity-O (in-screen camera hole) design that we are likely to see on the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S10 flagships. However, nothing was certain until now. In the latest development, reputed tipster Ice Universe has leaked the image of a Galaxy S10+ screen protector, claiming that it is the final design. Here's our first look at S10+.

The Galaxy S10+ screen protector posted by Ice Universe confirms the presence of an Infinity-O design. The pill-shaped camera module also shows room for two sensors. Further, the screen protector is curved on two sides and all the bezels have been pushed to extreme boundaries. This means Galaxy S10+ will offer a tall aspect ratio of 19:9 or more and an unprecedented screen-to-body ratio.

The Galaxy S10 and S10+ variants will feature 6.11-inch and 6.44-inch Super AMOLED Infinity-O displays with curved edges, QHD+ resolution and 19:9 aspect ratio, respectively. The S10 Lite will feature a flat 5.75-inch Infinity-O display with 18.5:9 aspect ratio, QHD resolution and a rear-mounted or in-display fingerprint scanner (optical). In comparison, the premium S10 and S10+ models will pack an ultrasonic in-display fingerprint sensor.
The Galaxy S10 and S10+ variants will sport a triple rear-camera setup - something we've heard previously as well. However, up front, the larger model will sport a dual-camera layout housed in a pill-shaped display hole whereas the standard S10 will get a single selfie snapper. Further, the S10 Lite variant will pack a dual rear-camera setup and a single front camera.

Lastly, Gizmodo UK previously claimed that S10 will offer Powershare - a reverse wireless charging feature (similar to Huawei Mate 20 Pro).
The Galaxy S10 Lite will come with 128GB storage and cost £669 (Rs. 60,710). The S10 will be offered in 128GB and 512GB storage options at £799 (Rs. 75,510) and £999 (Rs. 90,655), respectively.
