Samsung to release a flat display model of Galaxy S10 [RUMOR]

According to recent speculations by Android Pure, Samsung may be gearing up to release a flat display variant for the Galaxy S10 as opposed to its trademark Edge display with curved sides that marked their debut with the Galaxy S7 Edge.

Samsung Galaxy S10 features:

The flat phone, according to the site rumors, will be a 5.8-inch model unit out of the three S10 variants that Samsung is preparing to compete with the iPhone, iPhone XS Max, iPhone XS and iPhone XR.

The site allegedly makes the claim that the model number is SM-G970 and the display will have a screen ratio of 18.5:9. The display might even work as an ear-piece they claim.

The other two models reportedly leaked, will be the SM-G973 — with a 5.8 edge display — and the SM-G975 — with a 6.4–inch edge display. Not to mention it will finally introduce the long anticipated Fingerprint On Display technology in the new releases.

A flat display release is finally good news for users unsatisfied with the previous curved displays launched.

The Samsung Galaxy S10 may be a more affordable model or it could also be a potential fourth model. Opting for a flat display will most certainly allow the company to reduce the price point of the upcoming device. Though that still remains to be seen as yet, since no reveal about price point of the phones has been made. However, we can also expect it to only have a single camera at the back and not have the display-based fingerprint sensor.

The leaked details for the Samsung Experience 10 interface, show it to be tailored to the curved Edge display. It uses a curved corner card design that engulfs fully around the display edges. We’ll have to wait to see how the UI is adapted to a potentially flat phone.

The Galaxy S10 models with triple advanced cameras are apparently in the works for Samsung which probably means that the Qualcomm’s in-display fingerprint sensor will feature on all phone variants. They are also being rumored to be released ahead of the planned schedule.

The Galaxy S10 phone display specs were only just finalized by Samsung in April so much of this is indeed just speculation at this point.

Samsung Galaxy S10 release date:

These new Samsung Galaxy Android smartphones may launch during the Mobile World Congress 2019 (MWC 2019) or perhaps even earlier. And yes, we’re definitely expecting them to be announced after the Galaxy X is ‘Unveiled’.
