SEOUL – South Korean tech giant Samsung is expected to launch a trio of new Galaxy S10 smartphones next year.

The trio S10 includes 5.8-inch, 6.44-inch curved and 5.8-inch flat display smartphones.

According to a reliable leakster, Evan Blass, the upcoming Galaxy S10 will have a ‘punch hole-style selfie camera cut-out’, which sounds like the new Infinity-O notch.

Infinity-O is a small hole in the top-left corner features a selfie camera, the new design will replace the conventional notch.

Moreover, Blass also said that the new cutout design is not a regular notch and users will not be able to hide cutouts in the notification bar.

More specifications include an ultrasonic in-display fingerprint scanner, three cameras – standard, wide and telephoto, and Samsung’s One UI on top with Android 9 Pie.

Infinity-O is among three notch designs that the company had presented at its developer conference last week.

These all roll-outs seem like reasonable and even logical advancements for Samsung’s flagship for the first half of 2019.
