“Samsung Galaxy S10 leaked live image shows the smartphone will have evenly thick bezels on all sides, and a small cutout for the selfie camera and sensors”
The Samsung Galaxy S10 is among the most hotly anticipated smartphones in the market today, with the launch expected at MWC 2019. Now, a new live image of the smartphone has been leaked online, showing us how Samsung aims to bypass the unsightly notch but still achieve thin bezels around the sides. This new leak shows the Galaxy S10 will have a hole in the display to house the front camera and the sensors, giving the smartphone bezels that are consistently thin on the sides.
Concept designer Ben Geskin on Twitter posted a live image of the Galaxy S10 front panel with a tall display with a small cutout towards the top. The bezels on all sides, including the chin, are of even width and the display curves along the sides like it does on current generation’s two Galaxy S9 models. Three hardware buttons — for Bixby, power, and volume rocker — can be seen in the image as well.
However, it remains to be seen how Samsung aims to tackle the issue of a black hole appearing on one side while watching videos. That would be an ugly miss for an otherwise premium smartphone. It should be noted that this is likely the middle variant of the Galaxy S10 range as the rumour mill suggests the base model will not have curved sides.
A few days ago, Geskin had tweeted a concept render of the Galaxy S10 that looks rather close to the new leaked live image. The concept image showed the upcoming model as a cross between the Galaxy S9 and the iPhone XS Max. However, the curved edges of the live image leaked today seem a little more pronounced than the one in the concept render.
The Samsung Galaxy S10 will be the next big flagship smartphone that the company is working on. The brand has officially promised an industry-leading screen-to-body ratio for the handset, while leaks suggest it will come with as much as 12GB of RAM and two display sizes.
