The Galaxy S10 will be Samsung's tenth anniversary of the Galaxy S series and, unlike the iPhone X, the flagship will not see a major redesign over the previous models for the milestone.
According to a new report by Korean publication The Bell,
the Samsung Galaxy S10 and S10+ are going to feature an Infinity display just like the Galaxy S9 and the S8 before it. It seems Samsung isn't planning on any major redesign for the Galaxy S10 when it comes to the physical appearance of the device. The device will, however, see the long-rumored fingerprint sensor under the display and also what is being called “3D sensing camera modules.” Samsung has also reportedly finalized the Galaxy S10 and S10+ display specifications as 5.8-inches and 6.3-inches, respectively.

It was long rumored that the Samsung Galaxy S10 could see a radical redesign to feature a foldable display but Samsung mobile division CEO DJ Koh has quashed any chance of that for the S10. The CEO has made it clear that the foldable phone isn't a gimmick and will only be launched when the company is confident of delivering the best user experience. Samsung isn't a stranger when it comes to pulling technology that isn't ready as it did with the fingerprint sensor under the display that was pinned for the Galaxy S9 since the technology wasn't seen fit for release.
Any issues Samsung had with the technology to embed a fingerprint sensor under the display seem to have been ironed out. The report continues to suggest that the Galaxy S10 will be moving the sensor from the back of the device to within the display panel. However, there doesn't seem to be any hard evidence that supports that the technology is ready and instead could simply be a continuation of the rumor we saw for the S9.
is also suggesting that Samsung will feature a 3D sensing camera in cooperation with Israeli startup Mantis Vision, with the camera module supplier mentioned as either Woodgate or Namuga, or both. Naturally, a camera with optimized 3D sensing technology would enhance facial recognition security and make the animated emojis live on. Mantis Vision could also be using the 3D capabilities for some more advanced features such as 360-shooting made possible by its technology
While the report speculates on features that have previously been suggested for the Galaxy S10, it doesn't seem to reinforce it with solid evidence and instead is assumptions based on predicted moves for Samsung. The Bell
is usually pretty spot on with the rumors surrounding unreleased Samsung devices but with such a long time before the Galaxy S10 is expected, there is plenty of time for more information to be uncovered. For now, we're taking this one with a pinch of salt.
