Galaxy S10 design reportedly finalized: Infinity Display, 3D camera, under-glass scanner


Besides the alleged peace talks between the two Koreas, decades in the making, the biggest news out of the local media today is the eventual Galaxy S10 design finalization, a decade in the making. If you have been waiting for some grand anniversary overhaul of the Galaxy S-line body, however, you might be in for a disappointment. The Galaxy S10 will seemingly have... wait for it... Infinity Display design.

The insiders even tip the expected screen sizes for the Galaxy S10 and S10 Plus to be 5.8" and 6.3", or, slightly larger than the 5.77" and 6.22" panels of the S9 and S9+, yet it's not clear if they aren't simply rounding things up. The report does say that the phones will be slightly larger - 0.03" and 0.08", respectively - than their predecessors, so a tad bigger panels aren't out of the question, yet it's not specified if they are talking length or width here.

The body, however, may undertake at least one more or less drastic redesign, and it is the removal of a fingerprint scanner, moving it under the screen. There are a few such phones out there already, so it's not out of the question that Samsung may have cracked the in-display finger reading code. Samsung is allegedly working on ironing out the under-screen biometric kinks with Qualcomm and Synaptics in the US, as well as Aegis Tech in Taiwan as supplier.

The other exciting new development that Samsung may be adding for the Galaxy S10 to make it stand out as an anniversary member of the Galaxy S-line, is tipped again to be a 3D-sensing camera kit, developed in partnership with the Israelis from Mantis Vision, and aided by local camera component maker Woodgate. If you are curious what Mantis Vision will bring to the table that Apple's TrueDepth camera might not, look no further than the video above, and dream for some of these options to make their way into the Galaxy S10 and S10 Plus.
