We’re just under two months away from Samsung’s likely announcement of the Galaxy S10, and the phone’s first big leak has just arrived. Serial gadget leaker Evan Blass posted a photo on Twitter of what he says is one model of the upcoming phone.
The photo shows a phone with a nearly full-screen design, disrupted only by a camera cutout in the top-right corner and thin bezels around each edge. There’s just the slightest additional thickness for a chin on the bottom.
Blass indicates that this will be the standard version of the Galaxy S10. There’s also expected to be a cheaper model, a larger Plus model, and a 5G model. Samsung typically announces its Galaxy S phones at the end of February.
Samsung has avoided the notch trend that’s spread to basically every other smartphone in the past year. But the company recently unveiled a series of next-generation screen designs that start to include some small interruptions.
The one we’re seeing here, on the leaked S10, is from a model Samsung calls the Infinity-O display, which we’ve already seen one other phone make use of. Its use here will make the S10 Samsung’s first flagship phone to include any kind of screen interruption, instead of building the tech into the bezel above the display.
