After introducing the world to its original Infinity Display back in March of 2017, Samsung recently announced four new panels that will soon be implemented across its range of devices. And, according to a reliable industry source, one of these could be featured on the upcoming Galaxy S10.

A concept of what Samsung's Infinity-O panel could look like

Although Samsung did unveil two notched displays the other day, it seems these will be reserved for both low-end and mid-range offerings. Instead, the brand’s upcoming flagship could use the new Infinity-O panel which adopts a small cut-out in the top-left corner that houses the front camera.

Following the revelation last month that Samsung was working on displays with cameras hidden beneath them, this news may come as a slight disappointment to many. However, the decision likely relates to the current state of the tech. After all, just as the source points out, this concept is still quite new and current implementations produce blurry images. Because of this, consumers should instead expect to see the tech in 2020, perhaps with the debut of the Galaxy S11.

Back to the Galaxy S10, the smartphone will bring quite a few other upgrades too. For one, the awkwardly-placed rear fingerprint scanner will be removed in favor of a new in-screen sensor. Furthermore, a triple-camera setup is rumored to be present on the rear of the Galaxy S10+ model, while a new processor built on the 7-nanometer process will power all models. Lastly, in the hope of capturing the attention of consumers, the smartphone line will be sold in at least six colors.

any notch is better then the one apple created. no pun intended. but i still think the s10 will not have a notch at all.

Sorry but the Pixel 3's notch makes Apples' look like a teardrop. Pixel 3 has hands down THE worst looking notch.

They always consistently fall flat on their face when it comes to design, and I don’t know why. It’s like they’re stuck in 2011

If Google can actually get their photo ai right that they showed last year where the AI removed the chain link fence in a fabricated example, possibly this same structure could be used to eliminate the blur of having the camera under the panel itself. If Samsung uses the O version in their flagships, I think it would only be for a year before they used the fourth infinity screen type they showed that didn't have a cutout at all.

I think the O cutout would look better in the middle but either way, it's better than any notch.

Not a notch and a hole is acceptable because Samsung will support it. How about their notch ads?

I agree. I loathe notches but this actually looks very nice.

What’s this?! You actually had something positive to say a non-Apple related article?

If the S10 is supposed to be a flagship phone, why wouldn't it use the new Infinity display?

It likely will. PA is just trying to get clicks writing stupid stories about nothing.

PA just want to create BS that isn't there. Samsung will use the new infinity displays for their flagships.

All I know is if Samsung does out three cameras on the smaller S10 and it has better battery life than the S9, then next year I will be team Samsung. I wanted the V40 to be that but the poor battery life and larger size was a real deal breaker for me.

Why would they? They have 4 infinity displays, including one that dies have a hole or notch. I am sure they wont destroy their flagship with one of these compromises.
