Serial tech leaker, Evan Blass, has posted what he claims is the first image of the unannounced Samsung Galaxy S10, which seems to include the company’s Infinity O display it’s used in a previous model.
If it’s indeed a picture of one of the upcoming smartphones, it would make it the first big leak in the leadup to Samsung’s February announcement. Unlike Apple, which makes its announcements around September each year, Samsung tends to skew much earlier.
Posted via a tweet, the image shows an almost full-screen display with thin bezels on each side and a “hole-punch” display the company earlier coined as the Infinity O display. It’s essentially a rectangular screen disrupted by a front-facing camera in the top right corner, as opposed to the notch display popularised by Apple and now used by just about everyone else.
From what I can see, there’s a slightly larger bezel at the top containing the earpiece microphone. The bottom of the unit also has a larger bezel.

Blass reckons this will be the base model S10, but reports indicate there will also be a larger Plus model and a 5G variant. Like all leaks, we simply won’t know whether this is legit until Samsung actually makes its announcement next month.
I’d wager we’ll get some more leaks between now and then, though.Image: Evan Blass
