Samsung Galaxy S10 photo leak shows off hole-punch screen
The Samsung Galaxy S10 is one of the most hotly anticipated smartphones of 2019, and today we’re getting our first look at the device in the wild.
A photo that shows the front of the Samsung Galaxy S10 has surfaced, and while all of the apps on the screen have been blurred, we can still get a lot of interesting info from the image. There’s a hole-punch for the front camera in the upper corner of the screen, and we can see both a chin at the bottom of the display and what looks to be a slim forehead as well.

This Galaxy S10 is codenamed Beyond 1, according to Evan Blass. Past rumors have suggested that Samsung is prepping three versions of the Galaxy S10, codenamed Beyond 0, Beyond 1, and Beyond 2, which include a “Lite” version of the S10 as well as the standard and Plus versions. A 5G model is also in the works, and it may be the one hinted at by T-Mobile recently.
Blass also suggests that the Galaxy S10 will include the ability to wirelessly charge other compatible phones and smartwatches.
Samsung managed to resist the notch display trend of 2018, but it looks like the company will be jumping on the hole-punch bandwagon that we expect to see in 2019. At least with this hole-punch design, the cutout is off in the upper corner and not right in the middle of the top of the screen.
As for when Samsung might officially announce the Galaxy S10, recent rumors have suggested that a late February announcement could be coming.
