THE INCOMING The Samsung Galaxy S10 will contain both a selfie camera and a fingerprint scanner built into the display.
At least that is according to notorious tipster Evan Blass, who tweeted on Tuesday (down) that the Galaxy S10 will be the first with a selfie camera with "perforation holes" – with the recently plagued & # 39; Infinity O & # 39; display technology from Samsung.
Instead of the controversial notch, this display will contain a small hole in the upper left corner where the camera is placed on the front.
Little provisional Galaxy S10 details:
– "Self-punch hole" selfie cam cut-out (sounds like Infinity-O display).
– Ultrasonic in-display FPS
– Three rear camera's (standard / wide / tele)
– One user interface for Android Pie
– Evan Blass (@evleaks) November 13, 2018
If the latest predictions from Blass are about the money, the Galaxy S10 will also be the first flagship of Samsung with an in-display fingerprint scanner. This will be an ultrasonic sensor, such as the OnePlus 6T and Huawei Mate 20 Pro.
Elsewhere the tweet adds weight to previous rumors that the S10 will have a setup with a triple camera on the back and the new One & # 39; One & # 39; UI from Samsung on top of the Android Pie.
Samsung Galaxy S10 line-up, which reportedly includes standard, plus-sized and budget models, is expected to make its debut at MWC next year, with a 5G model to follow in March.
27/10/18: Samsung will launch three Galaxy S10 models next year, according to a report by Bloomberg.
Backing up previous predictions of analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, BloombergSources say that the Galaxy S10 and S10 Plus will pack a curved OLED screen with "almost no border" and a built-in fingerprint sensor. There will be no notch, the report claims, with the front camera visible and tucked under the screen.
Around the back, the S10 models will have a Huawei rival triple camera setup and at the bottom there is no 3.5 mm headphone jack.
Samsung is also planning a "cheaper" variant of the S10, according to Bloombergsources, which will not boast the curved "edge" screen that is characteristic of Samsung phones since the Galaxy Note Edge in 2014. However, it can come with a built-in fingerprint sensor "depending on the cost", add the sources.
And to back up recent rumors from Korea, the report claims that the Galaxy S10 will be the first 5G-compatible smartphone from Samsung. The company is reportedly in talks with Verizon to launch a 5G version of the Galaxy S10 to the US, although it is unclear that the model will be offered here in Blighty.
The Bloomberg report also spills the beans on Samsung's rumor with many rumors, codenamed & # 39; Winner & # 39 ;. Despite speculation that the device could be launched next month at the Samsung developer conference, the company is reportedly still deciding whether the device will expand vertically or horizontally.
The device, which has been turned over to arrive as the Galaxy X, will not contain an in-screen fingerprint scanner due to "technical problems", but will offer users an additional 4-inch display that can be used when the phone is closed.
Of course, Samsung did not comment on the rumors, but said in a statement: "We are constantly developing our smartphone portfolio to provide our customers with new and exciting innovations and experiences, and we have nothing to do with future devices. . "
12/10/18: The Galaxy S10 could be the last flagship of Samsung to keep the 3.5 mm headphone jack.
That's what he says ET News, which reports that although the Galaxy S10 will probably keep the port, Samsung is planning to remove the headphone jack on the Galaxy Note 10 or Galaxy S11. Instead, the company will depend on a combination of the USC Type-C port of the phone and a bundled main telephone dongle, according to the report.
ET News does not say why Samsung wants to get rid of the headphone jack, but speculates that the company, like other manufacturers, just wants to save space for other parts.
3/10/18: A new report has described the triple camera settings that Samsung will apply to the Galaxy S10.
According to the report, seen through SamMobile, the Galaxy S10 will have the same 12 MP f1.5 / 2.4 lens with variable diaphragm as the Galaxy S10, in addition to a "super wide angle" 16MP f / 1.9 lens with a viewing angle of 123 degrees and a 13.22 f2.4 aperture sensor.
The report notes that the wide-angle lens is not equipped with optical image stabilization and autofocus.
This set with three cameras is, according to SamMobile, functioning on the Galaxy S10 model with the highest specifications. An "affordable" model will contain a single camera lens, while the standard Galaxy S10 reportedly has a double camera setting.
24/8/18: A slip-up by Samsung has hinted that it will launch four different versions of the Galaxy S10.
According to XML files that are hidden in the Android 9.0 update of the company, spotted XDA Developers, the four devices have passed the code name & # 39; passed 0 & # 39 ;, & # 39; passed 1 & # 39 ;, & # 39; passed 2 & # 39; and & # 39; Beyond 2 5G & # 39;
This adds weight to recent rumors that Samsung is planning to launch a 5G variant of the S10. According to online murmurs, this model will contain virtually identical specifications for the Galaxy S10 Plus (or & # 39; beyond 2 & # 39;), but will include additional sensors to enable 5G communication.
Although the leak tells us not much else about the devices, XDA notes that all four handsets will probably start with next-gen silicon from Samsung or Qualcomm (the Exynos 9820 or Snapdragon 8150), while the 5G model probably Qualcomm & # 39; s will pack. Snapdragon X50 or Samsung's own Exynos 5100 modem.
17/9/18: The Galaxy S10 can display a 19: 9 aspect ratio, depending on leaked benchmarks.
The HTML5test benchmarking tool published results from an SM-G405F with Android 9.0 Pie. Although it is unconfirmed that this model number is related to the Galaxy S10, SamMobile reports that the benchmark contains a resolution of 412 x 869 pixels, higher than the 412 x 846 pixel resolution mentioned for the Galaxy S9, suggesting that the mysterious device will join Samsung's flagship in the S series.
Although the offer does not tell us much else, these figures suggest that the Galaxy S10 can pack a larger 19: 9 screen, in contrast to the aspect ratio of 18: 5.9 on the Galaxy S9. This is supported by recent rumors that the flagship will have noticeably fewer bezels compared to its predecessor.
These leaked benchmarks come hot on the heels of DJ Koh, CEO of Samsung's mobile biz, and confirm that design changes in the Galaxy S10 will be "very significant".
Koh has suggested that the company's 10-year-old smartphone will be more than an incremental update – as the S9 was for the S8 – and that the S10 would be offered in "amazing" new colors.
10/9/18: The Galaxy S10 is said to be the "most expensive" smartphone from Samsung, thanks to the added 5G technology.
That says the Korean website The bell, which reports that Samsung will release a 5G version of the Galaxy S10 which would make the iPhone XS look cheap. The report notes that the model, which will have the same specifications as the S10 Plus, requires "four to five more antennas" than the current 4G handsets, before concluding that "the price of the series may be the most expensive".
In addition to the added 5G modules and the high-value price tag, The bell reports that the S10 model will have a display of 6.44 inches and that – along with the S10 Plus – will be the first S-series smartphone equipped with a dual camera on the front and a triple camera on the rear .
The S10 line-up, which will be unveiled at next year's CES, can be released "before and after March 5, when domestic mobile operators start 5G service," the report notes.
28/8/18: Samsung will equip all three Galaxy S10 models with an in-display fingerprint sensor, according to a report on The investor.
While previous reports had suggested that the & # 39; entry model & # 39; S10 model would miss the scanner, it is now reported that all three models are equipped with the in-screen technology.
According to The investor, the two high-end models reportedly have an ultrasonic display-based fingerprint sensor, while the entry-level model will have an optical fingerprint sensor.
"The two high-end Galaxy S models will be equipped with an ultrasonic in-screen fingerprint scanner while the other one will house an optical fingerprint sensor beneath the screen," a display industry official told the website.
The ultrasonic sensor, which is probably supplied by Qualcomm, creates a 3D map with fingerprints to scan users' figures, making them more accurate than with traditional scanners. It is not affected by fat, sweat or light, according to the report.
The optical sensor, which is three times cheaper & # 39; is then the ultrasonic alternative, works as a digital camera and creates a two-dimensional image of a fingerprint. It is not as accurate as the scanner that is set to debut on the two high-end S10 models, and will have trouble scanning fingers if they are dirty, too wet or too dry, or if external lights get in the way to sit.
25/7/18: Samsung allegedly designed its own GPU with a "completely new design" and could make its debut in the Galaxy S10.
The news, first broken through Graphic speak and later confirmed by reliable tipster Ice Universe (down), Samsung claims that it is developing an internal GPU that provides "leading performance / watt" in simulations.
Samsung & # 39; s self-designed GPU is the first new GPU design in the industry in 10 years. The GPU has a new architecture that makes it widely usable from smartphones to supercomputer, with the best formance / watthttps: //t.co/8IugvzR9HL
– Ice universe (@UniverseIce) July 24, 2018
The GPU will be equipped with a completely new architecture that could make it work on supercomputers in all smartphones, according to an analyst who was aware of the work.
"This is really a big problem – it's the first new GPU design in 10 years," says Jon Peddie, director of Jon Peddie Research.
The Samsung GPU can "align it with Apple," added Peddie. "This design is so good that they can use it in any platform – it's a function of their ambition. If I had it, it would include everything including cockpits and supercomputers."
The GPU, developed by Samsung-newbie Dr. Chien-Ping Lu, a graphics veteran who previously worked at Nvidia and MediaTek, is expected to appear for the first time in a Samsung Exynos smartphone processor – a sign that it could turn up in the company's 10-year jubilee. S10.
The company has not decided whether it will license the technology, according to the report.
20/7/18: The Samsung Galaxy S10 will have considerably smaller bezels than its S9 predecessor, according to the latest rumors.
Although the Galaxy S9 was a decent copy of the Galaxy S8 before, despite the rumors that it would have considerably smaller bezels, it seems that Samsung has saved these big upgrades for its 10-year anniversary Galaxy S release.
According to Twitter tipster Ice Universe, the screen to body ratio of the Galaxy S10 will be "greatly improved" compared to the S9. There is no word about details, but probably the Samsung will remove the bottom panel on the device to achieve a ratio of screen and body of about 90 percent.
The screen / body ratio of the Galaxy S10 will be significantly improved.
– Ice universe (@UniverseIce) July 20, 2018
Currently, the Galaxy S9 has a screen-to-body ratio of about 84 percent.
In a follow-up tweet, Ice Universe also suggests that the S10 makes improvements to the battery department and says, "If you use the more advanced packaging technology SLP, then the battery is definitely bigger than the S9, and the Samsung president said he was hard works to solve the problem of loading speed. "
18/7/17: Qualcomm has shown an early prototype of its ultrasonic fingerprint scanner that is expected to debut on the Galaxy S10.
According to Twitter tipster Ice Universe, Samsung will be one of the first to work with Qualcomm's in-display fingerprint scanning technology. He quotes Samsung CEO Dj Koh as follows: the S10 will not use an optical solution for fingerprints, because "optical fingerprints can cause a bad user experience".
DJ Koh said that the Galaxy S10 does not use an optical solution for fingerprints, because optical fingerprints can cause a poor user experience. Otherwise, Samsung could use it two years ago. We will bring a better fingerprint experience to the screen for S10.
– Ice universe (@UniverseIce) July 16, 2018
Qualcomm & # 39; s ultrasonic technology, tested by CNET, "uses sound waves to generate a map of your fingerprint, where the pressure wave reflects on the contours of your skin."
The technology, which could mean the end of the physical home button, also offers a number of advantages over optical scanners, the report said. He can scan a finger if it is wet, has a delay of only 250 milliseconds, has a rejection rate of one percent and only measures 0.15mm, so this does not result in thick smartphones.
Qualcomm has confirmed that the technology will be released in smartphones next spring.
17/7/18: Apple guru Ming-Chi Kuo has focused his attention on Samsung and predicts that the Galaxy S10 will be available in three sizes.
In a report seen through Business insiderKuo says he expects the Galaxy S10 to be available in 5.8-inch, 6.1-inch and 6.4-inch models – almost identical to the sizes that Kuo expects to receive from the 2018 iPhones from Apple.
By adding weight to recent rumors, Kuo expects the larger two S10 models to include fingerprint sensors on the display, and the smaller model with a fingerprint sensor on the side.
Kuo adds that Samsung will "aggressively" promote fingerprint scanning on the screen – probably because it is a feature that Apple does not intend to include on its inbound iPhones.
Kuo predicts that Samsung could ship 40 million Galaxy S10 phones next year, usually the two larger models – undoubtedly the Galaxy S10 and S10 Plus. Samsung could also ship 14 million to 16 million Galaxy Note 10 phones next year, the report said.
10/7/18: Samsung Galaxy S10 Plus arrives with five (five!) camera & # 39; s, The bell reports.
Samsung reportedly plans three Galaxy S10 models for 2019, with previous rumors about the highest specs of the Galaxy S10 Plus featuring a P20 Pro rival triple-lens rear camera similar to Apple's incoming iPhone X Plus .
Korean website The Bell is now reporting that the S9 Plus successor will also have a dual-camera setup on its front, likely to enable face-scanning technology similar to Apple's Face ID. Earlier rumors claimed that Samsung's easy-to-use iris scanner will be replaced with a 3D-detecting camera in next year's S10 line-up.
The report also includes some more information about the rumored setup of the triple lens of the S10 Plus, which reportedly would include a wide-angle lens, a telephoto lens and a new 16MP, 120-degree ultra-wide-angle lens.
However, the standard Galaxy S10 (codename & # 39; Beyond 1 & # 39;) and entry-level (& # 39; Beyond 0 & # 39;) models are not expected to provide such high-end camera login data. The S10 offers the same tri-camera setup on the back, but only one in the front, according to the report, while & # 39; Beyond 0 & # 39; reportedly comes with a standard two camera's – one at the front and one at the back.
9/7/18: Samsung is planning to develop a "budget" version of the Galaxy S10 which, according to him, will not include a built-in fingerprint scanner The bell.
Add weight to previous rumors (down), the Korean website reports that Samsung is developing three variants of the Galaxy S10, code-named & # 39; Beyond 0 & # 39 ;, & # 39; Beyond 1 & # 39; and & # 39; Beyond 2 & # 39;
The bell states that the last two high-end devices will be with built-in fingerprint sensors, Beyond 0 is the first "entry-level model" in the S-series from Samsung.
According to the report, this model does not have a built-in fingerprint scanner and instead has a sensor on the side similar to the one on the Moto Z3 Play and on previous Sony devices. If this is legitimate, this is the first time that Samsung occupies such a position for a fingerprint sensor, with The bell note that it probably lies along the right edge of the user's thumb.
The decision to exclude an in-display fingerprint sensor in the Beyond 0 variant has been reportedly made, not surprising, to save costs.
The FPS technology on the S10 series, supplied by chipmaker Qualcomm, costs, according to the report $ 15 per module, seven times more expensive than the $ 2 module currently on the flagships of Samsung.
26/6/18: Samsung plans to release three new Galaxy S10 devices next year, according to the Korean website ET News.
The report, which calls for "multiple representatives of the industry participating in the development of the next Galaxy S series", claims that Samsung is planning to follow in the footsteps of Apple, reportedly later this year three new devices will launch.
The first device, codenamed & # 39; Beyond 0 & # 39 ;, will reportedly have a screen of 5.8 inches and a camera setup for a single lens, similar to the current Galaxy S9. This is complemented by the Beyond 1 & # 39 ;, which will also have a screen of 5.8 inches, but will have an enhanced dual camera setting.
The & # 39; Beyond 2 & # 39 ;, ET News claims, will pack a bigger screen of 6.2 and will probably arrive as the Galaxy S10 Plus. It will also have a triple lens camera as seen on the Huawei P20 Pro, if the report is to be believed.
ET News does not have much else to say about the three incoming S10 models, but notes that Samsung is not yet ready to launch its first foldable smartphone – the Galaxy X – and "rushes to develop it". According to recent rumors, it will arrive at MWC next year, with the S10 being launched at CES a month earlier.
25/6/18: The Galaxy S10 from Samsung will reportedly replace the iris scanner with a "Face ID" sensor in Apple style.
That says a report from the South Korean website The bell, who has heard from unnamed sources that the Galaxy S10 will use a front 3D sensor that will replace the current, easy to deceive iris scanner.
This will not be the only form of authentication on the device, as the report claims that Samsung will also provide the S10 with an in-display fingerprint sensor. This one, The bell claims, is being developed by Qualcomm, Synaptics and the Taiwan Institute of Technology, although the report notes that Samsung might review its strategy if the technology were not ready in time for the January smart launch of the smartphone.
The report does not give away much else, but notes that – just like the previous releases of the company – there will be two variants: the 58in Galaxy S10 and 6.3in Galaxy S10 Plus.
21/6/18: An alleged prototype of the Samsung Galaxy S10 shows that the flagship could adopt an iPhone X-schooling full-screen design.
An image of the prototype was posted on Twitter by the infamous tipster Ice Universe (down). Although he does not specifically mention the Galaxy S10, his use of the word & # 39; beyond & # 39; – Probably the code name for the upcoming flagship of Samsung – everything but road.
This can be a design that goes further. pic.twitter.com/lViQUsW1Jv
– Ice universe (@UniverseIce) June 20, 2018
The practice photo shows that the Galaxy S10, if legitimate, could have a full-screen design similar to that of the Oppo Find X – giving it a 93% ratio on screen to body, from the ratio of 83, 6 percent found on the Galaxy S8 and S9.
Like the Oppo Find X there is no sign of a front camera – or even sensors – on the front of the device, suggesting that Samsung might be the next in line to put a pop-up camera on the front use instead of an iPhone X-style notch. Earlier this month we heard that Samsung might not use a display cutout by equipping the S10 with futuristic, sound-emitting display technology.
Before you express your expectations, we find it hard to believe that the so-called & # 39; prototypes & # 39; to give a legitimate image of Samsung's flagship 2018, since the launch of the flagship takes at least six months.
According to recent rumors (down), the Galaxy S10 will probably officially appear for the first time at next year's CES in Las Vegas.
14/6/18: Samsung will prevent the Galaxy S10 from sticking next year by taking over on futuristic, sound-emitting display technology, says ETNews.
The Korean publication reports that Samsung, together with LG, will start the next year with the debut of & # 39; sound emission screens & # 39; on her smartphones, after showing prototypes of technology at the SID expo last month.
With this display technology, the sound can be transmitted via the screen of a telephone, making the necessity of a facing earpiece and, in turn, a display cut-out in the form of an iPhone X-style becomes superfluous. This means that if Samsung uses a pop-up selfie camera such as the recently announced Vivo Nex, it would be able to push the screen on the S10 all the way to the top of the device.
16/5/18: Samsung is reportedly planning to equip the Galaxy S10 from next year with a ridiculously sharp screen that will blow the iPhone X out of the water.
According to Twitter tipster Ice Universe, the screen resolution of the Galaxy S10 will outperform the 600Pi trumps of the 458ppi of the iPhone X and the 570ppi screen of the Galaxy S9.
It was rumored that the screen resolution of the Galaxy S10 would exceed 600PPI
– Ice universe (@UniverseIce) May 14, 2018
It remains to be seen that the screen matches the dazzling brightness of the Sony Xperia XZ Premium, which packs a 5.8 inch 3840×2160 4K screen with a pixel density of 760ppi.
In addition to a staged screen resolution, the Galaxy S10 is also expected to have a screen-to-body ratio of 93 percent – which benefits the 83.5 percent of the Galaxy S9.
Further, it looks like, it seems increasingly likely that the Galaxy S10 will provide the first Samsung phone with an in-screen fingerprint reader after Ice Universe has tweeted that the ultrasonic technology will not reach the Samsung Galaxy Note 9.
"It is almost certain that Note9 does not have a FOD [Fingerprint-reader On Display]", read the tweet.
4/5/18: Rumors claim that Samsung will launch its Galaxy S10 flagship in January 2018, with plans to launch its long-awaited foldable smartphone at MWC in February.
Korean newspaper The bell, of course, reports that the Samsung Galaxy S10 will probably see an official unveiling at CES in January, with the "purchase of parts" starting in October.
Although this is not the first time we have heard that Samsung could launch its next flagship smartphone earlier than planned, this rumor has more meat. The bell claims that the launch of the S10 has been pushed forward to make way for its fat & # 39; Galaxy X & # 39; smartphone with an old rumor.
Reportedly, in November Samsung asked suppliers to supply a component for the smartphone, with plans to unveil the device on MWC.
The so-called Galaxy X will have a "collapsible structure", notes The Bell, consisting of three 3.5-inch OLED panels. The front of the product will reportedly be equipped with two 3.5-inch panels to create a 7-inch screen, with an additional 3.5-inch display at the rear.
3/5/18: Samsung Galaxy S10 is codenamed "Beyond" and according to the Korean news broadcast will be the first with a built-in fingerprint sensor The bell.
Referring to the "parts industry" as a source, the website claims that Samsung & # 39; s & # 39; Beyond & # 39; code-name fits the 10-year flagship of the company, with the set goal of & # 39; to go further than what it has already achieved on the smartphone market.
To do so, the Galaxy S10 will be the first Samsung smartphone equipped with fingerprint technology on the display (FOD), according to the report, which notes that the company has tried to introduce the feature since the Galaxy S8, but failed due to "technical problems".
Samsung will succeed in integrating a fingerprint sensor into the AMOLED screen of the Galaxy S10, The bell claims, although it is unclear who will provide the company with futuristic technology.
It is currently unknown whether the Galaxy S10 will also have an iPhone X-a-like 3D detection technology on the front.
"Unlike FPS, partners in the 3D detection module do not detect mass production movements," said an official official in the electronics industry.
18/4/18: The Galaxy S9 is perhaps only a few weeks old, but Samsung has reportedly completed the design of the Galaxy S10 next year.
That says the Korean website The bell, which claims that Samsung's tenth anniversary Galaxy S-series phones will arrive early next year, equipped with an in-display fingerprint scanner and a 3D detection camera, similar to those on the iPhone X.
The fingerprint sensor on the device's screen, according to the report, is currently being developed by Qualcomm and Synaptics in the US, and Aegis Tech in Taiwan. The Galaxy S10 and S10 + will probably be the first Samsung smartphones equipped with the technology, with recent reports indicating that the Galaxy Note 9, in spite of previous rumors, probably will not carry the function.
The rumors 3D detection module of the Galaxy S10 is being developed by camera firm & # 39; s Mantis Vision and Woodgate, The bell notes. Further details about this feature remain vague, but it will probably provide the iPhone X style face unlock feature, improving the current, and somewhat matt, iris scanning solution.
Elsewhere, the Korean report speculates that the Galaxy S10 will have the foldable AMOLED screen we have heard so much about, and instead claims that Samsung will stick to the same curved Infinity screens found on the S9 and S9 + from this year.
The screens would be even bigger, with the S10 and S10 Plus tipped to have 5.8in and 6.3in panels respectively, 0.03in and 0.08in bigger than their predecessors.
That's all The bell but in a previous report it was claimed that – somewhat surprising – the Galaxy S10 and S10 + are powered by the so far unannounced Exynos 9820 SoC from Samsung, which is expected to debut in the Galaxy Note 9.
The Exynos variants of Samsung are usually released in Europe, with Qualcomm's next-gen Snapdragon 855 processor set for the US-bound version.
Samsung has of course not responded to the rumors. μ
