Samsung Galaxy S10 design gets hinted at in latest patent
In the filing, the company describes twelve different designs that all make use of some kind of display hole. In the majority of them, though, Samsung depicts the cut-out in the top-left corner along with varying display shapes – some have curved edges, some have rounded corners, and some are flat panels.
When it comes to which one will be used on the Galaxy S10 and S10+, it will most likely be a combination of models F and C. This would translate into a dual-edge display complete with rounded corners and a display hole in the corner. Similarly, Model A, which is an entirely flat panel with rounded edges, likely depicts the Galaxy S10 Lite’s design.
Although the rear look of the flagship lineup isn’t represented in the patent, recent rumors have pointed towards horizontal camera setups on the rear that will allow for a much larger battery – up to 4,000mAh in the Plus model. This will all be combined with the Snapdragon 8150 or Exynos 9820, depending on the region, and Android 9 Pie complete with the One UI overlay on top straight out of the box.
