Samsung Galaxy S10 to feature triple rear-camera, Infinity-O display
Samsung is expected to launch its 10th-anniversary Galaxy S10 as early as February next year.
And now, fresh leaks suggest S10 will feature a new Infinity-O style display to offer an unprecedented screen-to-body ratio.
Here's everything we know about Galaxy S10.
Some expected features, some unexpected design changes
Few preliminary Galaxy S10 details:— Evan Blass (@evleaks) November 13, 2018
- "Punch hole" style selfie cam cutout (sounds like Infinity-O display).
- Ultrasonic, in-display FPS
- Three rear cameras (standard/wide/tele)
- One UI over Android Pie
Firstly, here are some details about Samsung's new Infinity Displays
Samsung recently unveiled a new line-up of Infinity Displays that will come to future smartphones.
Alongside the Infinity Flex display, the tech giant unveiled four new screens:
Infinity-U: A half oval cut-out similar to the Essential phone
Infinity-V: An angular V-shaped notch similar to Infinity-U
Infinity-O: A circular cut-out positioned on the left side of the phone
New Infinity: A notch-less, bezel-less display.
Galaxy S10 to sport Infinity-O style display
According to fresh leaks, Galaxy S10 will sport an Infinity-O display and not New Infinity display, considering the latter technology is still "immature".
Notably, the S10 will sport a single circular cut-out for the front camera - similar to the recently teased Galaxy A8s.
And while this design offers increased real-estate, there will be no place for Samsung's Face ID rival biometric technology.
Galaxy S10's new design won't even accommodate the iris sensor
Yes, the S10 cancels the iris sensor and the ultrasonic fingerprint is enough to replace it.— Ice universe (@UniverseIce) November 2, 2018
Galaxy S10 will sport a triple-rear camera setup
According to previous leaks and fresh tip-offs, the upcoming Galaxy flagship will feature a triple rear-camera setup.
Reportedly, the camera setup will comprise a 12MP (1.4-micron pixels) main sensor with f/1.5-f/2.4 variable aperture, OIS and Autofocus (AF).
Further, there will be a 16MP (f/1.9) wide-angle lens with 123-degrees field-of-view, and a 13MP (1-micron pixels) telephoto sensor with f/2.4 aperture, OIS and AF.
Also, we may see S10 in five colors

S10 will feature an ultra-sonic in-display fingerprint sensor
While S10 doesn't pack any 3D face scanning tech, it will come with an ultrasonic in-display fingerprint scanner. According to tipster Ice Universe, this ultrasonic sensor will be faster than optical in-display sensors and have a larger surface area (possibly upto 30% of the display).
S10 will debut Exynos 9820 and One UI
Samsung recently announced its latest mobile chipset - the Exynos 9820 which comes with an inbuilt NPU AI chip. Notably, the S10 and all its other variants will debut this chipset along with the all-new One UI that Samsung showcased at the developers conference.
