Samsung's Galaxy S phones are usually announced in the first quarter of the year, so we're still several months away from the discovery. We already have some idea of what the device will look like, thanks to the OnLeaks render at 91mobiles.
91mobiles identifies this device as the "Galaxy S10 Plus," and it's in good agreement with earlier rumors about the S10. On the back there are a whopping four cameras (supposedly a wide-angle lens, a telephoto lens, a main camera and a depth camera for bokeh effects) and two cameras on the front. The front design is dramatically slimmer compared to the Galaxy S9, and Samsung is using a new "punch" design for the front camera. A camera aperture should not have a major functional difference compared to a camera lens. It will be a dead area of the screen, and while you might just have the area above the camera as dead space, Samsung turns its display technology and surrounds the camera with pixels. Again, there is a lot of confirmation: Samsung has previously announced this "Infinity-O" display technology.
Having a hole on the screen is something new for an Android device, but in the software it most likely works just like a camera. Android extends the status bar around the display hole so that apps have a normal, uninterrupted rectangular area to play while only the system treats the awkward display form above. With these Galaxy S10 renderings, it looks like the status bar needs to be twice as big as normal to surround the display hole.
It also looks like there's a heart rate sensor at the bottom of the back camera bar, but fingerprint reader hardware is nowhere to be seen. It is also expected that the S10 will have a fingerprint scanner for the screen: an invisible in-screen sensor from Qualcomm. In fact, this week Qualcomm has introduced the "3D Ultrasonic Sensor", its ultrasonic fingerprint component. We already saw the OnePlus 6T with an optical fingerprint reader on the screen, but it only made a 2D image of your fingerprint. Qualcomm's ultrasonic sensor can image the ridges and valleys of your finger in 3D, so it should be safer. With the switch to an in-screen reader, Samsung lays the iris scanning technology, the company debuted in 2016 with the Galaxy Note 7.
Another thing that was hinted at in these renderings: Samsung holds the headphone jack! The universally compatible 3.5mm jack is located on the bottom of the phone, along with a USB-C port and a speaker. This makes it one of the few flagships (possibly together with LG) to hold the headphone jack around. It looks like there's a Bixby button, too.
Samsung is said to have three different S10 sizes plus a 5G version and a switch to folding devices. It is said that Samsung should launch five flagship models for early 2019]
