Samsung Galaxy S10 concept render

After a steady stream of Galaxy S10 leaks that started back in November, today serial tipster Evan Blass has published a photo of what is allegedly the regular Galaxy S10 in the wild.

Coinciding perfectly with previous reports, the smartphone pictured boasts Samsung’s Infinity-O display that was announced back in November. The panel gains this particular name from the circular display hole that sits in the top-right corner and is home to the selfie camera.

Looking at the smartphone’s bezels, Samsung has made some significant improvements over the Galaxy S9 series. The upper one, for starters, appears to be roughly half the size, while the side bezels appear to be slightly thinner too. The chin has also seen quite a bit of a reduction but is unfortunately still a bit thicker than the upper portion.

Moving away from the display, the image confirms the presence of a volume rocker and dedicated Bixby button that will presumably be paired with a power key on the opposite side of the frame. Unfortunately, there are no images of the smartphone’s rear but according to recent information, a triple-camera setup aligned horizontally will be included. 

Evan Blass didn’t provide any specs alongside the live photo of Samsung’s next flagship but he did, however, confirm that the device will support reverse wireless charging. This feature was first seen on the Huawei Mate 20 Pro last October and means that owners will be able to charge other devices and wearables with the phone.

The Galaxy S10 is set to go official in late February alongside the Galaxy S10+ and Galaxy S10 Lite. Sales of these three smartphones should commence in early March. But eventually, the flagships will be accompanied by an even larger model complete with 5G support.

With the edges left and right it looks fragile and the edges are not practical. From my S8, I remember that there was some annoying color shifting at the edges as well when watching content on the phone. If Samsung has the courage to drop the edges and go with a slim bezel like top and bottom bezels, I think this phone would be killer.

I dont have problems with the edge at all. Have s6 edge and recent just upgrade to s9 never crack the screen. I found 97% the one had crack screen is the one use the phone nake it. Matter of fact, I love the edge bc it’s help better reduce footprint and over all feel just make the phone complete.

I use my phones naked and never had an issue. Take care of your devices and you don't have to worry about breaking them.

Same here, used my Note 9 for 4 months now without any guard or case but just got one applied yesterday just to be sure not to ruin its beautiful display. But it can survive without it as well just need to take care.

I will keep my S8 until the screen won't get a hole, cut or a notch.

Depends where the hole is, on a screen? you are weird if you like it. ;) I mean the S8 or S9 is perfect already with perfect screen, i don't think it's worth it to ruin it only for slightly smaller bezels. Just different preference, mate.

I truly hope they don't f up the Note 10. Hopefully they use that new infinity screen.

Looks like it is a planned leaks by Samsung themself to build up hype...i mean marketing strategy.

The more I'm seeing this. The more it makes sense to me. IMHO we as humans tend to always look left and each time I pick up my phone the top right side isn't what I see first. Maybe samsung is on to something here. I can't wait for this device.

That explains the position of radio signal bars, battery percentage, time, and most of the icons.

It seems like Samsung is taking a page out of Google’s playbook, and slowly getting us used to the hole by the constant leaks (like what Google did for the Pixel 3).

The top and bottom bezels are a bit disappoting from what we've been seeing in renders

Samsung Over curves the screen, its hard to read the display the left & right with reflections.
