Decidedly, the trend for 2019 smartphones is clearly the holes in the screen to integrate the front camera. While Honor has already started to teaser its View 20 and Huawei has introduced its Nova 4, Samsung is not left behind. The Korean manufacturer has indeed presented last week its Galaxy A8s and its next high-end, the Galaxy S10, should take the same idea.
A smaller hole on the Samsung Galaxy S10
Note that the hole in the Galaxy A8s screen is much larger than that of Honor and Huawei smartphones already presented, with more than 6mm in diameter against 4.5mm for the Chinese brands. However, for the Samsung Galaxy S10, the Korean manufacturer should offer a smaller hole. In any case, this is what seems to indicate a photo of the screen protecter posted on Twitter by the leaker Ice Universe. Compared to that of the Galaxy A8s, the hole is less disturbing, like those found on the Honor View 20 and Huawei Nova 4.

The Samsung Galaxy S10 should be announced early next year. The latest rumors indicate a presentation for February 20 , just before the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona.
It is said that the company will present four variants of the brand’s new phones, among them a possible Galaxy S10 powered by 5G technology.
