Verizon, Samsung to release 5G smartphones in US in 2019

Galaxy S10 is expected to be shown off by Samsung at the start of next year and rumours are already heating up about the dramatic changes it could make to the product line both aesthetically and internally.

The device is nearly definitely going to feature an all-new display that does away with the need to have a notch or bar to house the front camera. This is because the Galaxy S10 Plus will feature an in-display fingerprint scanner. Samsung could be ditching face unlock as there's physically no room to house the required parts for the feature. Much like the Galaxy S9 series, the Galaxy S10 family is expected to utilize the earpiece as another speaker when necessary and hence deliver a stereo audio experience which should once again be optimized by AKG, the Austrian subsidiary of Samsung-owned technology giant Harman.

Now that we know exactly what the Samsung Galaxy A8s, Huawei Nova 4, and Lenovo Z5s will look like in terms of punch-holes, which one are you most excited about?

However, more recently it has been speculated a fourth version of the Galaxy S10 could be in the works that possesses 5G capabilities.

But the two front cameras will not be enough to support 3D facial recognition like the one used on the iPhone X series. What's unchanged compared to older rumors is the suggestion that Samsung is doing away with a traditional top bezel design and will instead be situating its next front-facing camera inside of a cutout that's not a traditional notch but is literally surrounded by the phone's display from all sides.

This means the S10 will feature an in-display fingerprint sensor and interestingly, according to BGR, the company has been working on a more sophisticated form of the tech. It's now being rumored that Samsung will be using an ultrasonic scanner instead of optical. Does not having face unlock a deal-breaker for you? Share your views with us in the comments.
