Samsung’s upcoming Galaxy S10 is shaping up to be a radically different phone compared with the S8 and S9.
The phone has been in the rumor mill for months, and now we’ve heard that the S10 might have a small hole cut out in the display for the camera.
The company has filed a patent for its Infinity-O display, which was initially showed off at the Samsung Developer Conference earlier this month. It appears to be a display with rounded corners and a small camera hole at the top left corner.
The patent has been filed with the World Intellectual Property Office (WIPO).
In the image, Samsung has exhibited two different models, one a little taller than the other. The screens look awfully similar to the Note 9 (Model A) and the S9 (Model B) as the former had more of a rectangular design and the latter had more rounded corners.
There are other Models in the patent that have the glass in different designs with the camera cutout being in a different position. If Samsung goes with any one of those designs, it’ll still be unique in the smartphone industry as a whole, as this hasn’t been done before.
We’re nearing the end of 2018 so it’s safe to say that Samsung may have finalized the design for the upcoming Galaxy S10.
Popular leaker and tipster Ben Geskin also mentioned that out of the three Galaxy S10 models, the cheapest one will have the Infinity-O, camera hole display.
Flat “Infinity-O” Display

Other rumored specifications of the S10 include a triple camera setup and an in-display fingerprint reader. It will most likely run the next generation Snapdragon 8150 processor with 6-8 GB RAM and 128-512 GB of internal storage.
We’ll update you as soon as we hear more about the Samsung Galaxy S10 in the future.
