While Samsung’s Galaxy S9 is still on the shelves, reports are already surfacing about the S10 series. They are said to be available in three variants and sport cutting-edge features according to reports. Another interesting report that has us intrigued is Samsung’s alleged collaboration with Israeli startup, Mantis Vision. Apparently, the Korean tech behemoth is in the process of developing a ‘notch-less 3D camera’.
Well-known leakster, Ice Universe has reported an image and claimed that Samsung is aiming to develop a flagship smartphone that has absolutely no bezels. This might explain the collaboration with Mantis Vision. The design is practically just a screen. There’s no bezels or a front camera in sight. Chances are, the notch-less 3D camera probably sits under the display or maybe Samsung has managed to use the screen as a camera. This is quite an innovative approach as it would enable removal of an extra component, not to mention the issues faced while using a front camera. Should I Look at the camera or at the screen?
Samsung hasn’t exactly had the best sales with their S9 series, with year-on-year smartphone sales decreasing. The Galaxy S10 family will probably rectify this and bring Samsung back in the game. The Samsung Galaxy S10 series is expected to be unveiled at MWC 2019 (Mobile World Congress). Reports say that the S10 series will come in three variants, the S10 (Beyond 1), S10+ (Beyond 2) and the S10 Lite. The S10 and S10+ will reportedly sport in-display fingerprint scanners while the S10 Lite is expected to sport a side mounted fingerprint scanner. Another smartphone, the Samsung Galaxy X is expected to make an appearance at CES 2019 (Consumer Electronics Show). The Galaxy X is expected to be a foldable smartphone. This might be the one that Samsung plans to make a splash with. These are wild speculations, so I suggest you take this with a pinch of salt.
