Our First Look at the Samsung Galaxy S10

Posted on January 3, 2019 by Mehedi Hassan in Android, Hardware with 7 Comments

Samsung’s next-gen Galaxy devices aren’t far from launch. The company is expected to introduce its new Galaxy devices, possibly called the Galaxy S10, sometime around MWC next month. Previous rumours suggest that the company could release three different variants of the Galaxy S10, codenamed “Beyond 0”, “Beyond 1”, and “Beyond 2”.

Evan Blass today leaked a picture of the upcoming Galaxy S10 “Beyond 1”, showing the device’s front. The leaked picture is censored heavily, and the device itself is within a case, so it does not look that great.

We can, however, see one of the main features of the upcoming the Galaxy S10: the Infinity-O notch on the right for the camera. Samsung already announced three different notch sizes — Infinity-V, Infinity-U, and Infinity-O last year, and the Beyond 1 will feature the Infinity-O notch design.

Blass later added that the Galaxy S10 will also have a “reverse wireless charging” feature which would allow the handset to automatically charge other devices like watches and other phones. That will be a very welcome feature, especially if you happen to have a smartwatch or even wireless earbuds that can be charged wirelessly (like the AirPods).

    Look, someone broke the screen already.

    I wonder where the status bar is. Maybe they are trying to hide a tall status bar that includes the whole lens area.

    It's early, but judging from the leaks, I'm sorry but I just don't see much to get excited about. I think I was more excited for the S8 since it was a major revision of the Samsung design language. This just seems more of the same, now with a punch-hole. Yay? They better not go overboard with the pricing either.
