Samsung Galaxy S10 to feature a cut-out selfie camera within the screen

We’re probably a few months and a festive season from the launch of the Samsung Galaxy S10, but trust serial leaker Evan Blass to out some juicy information.

The Venturebeat writer took to Twitter to divulge some S10 details.

Firstly, Blass suggests the phone will feature a “punch hole” selfie camera up front. This isn’t a notch in the traditional sense, but rather a hole within the screen itself that houses the camera.

Additionally the phone is also set to join the likes of the Vivo X21 and Huawei Mate 20 Pro in boasting an underscreen fingerpring reader.

And like the latter, the Galaxy S10 is set to feature three cameras at the rear — a telephoto, a wide angle and a standard lens.

Finally, Samsung’s One UI — which it paraded at its recent developers conference on its Galaxy F prototype — will get its first mainstream run on a smartphone.

Samsung traditionally launches its Galaxy devices near Mobile World Congress between February and March, so expect a good more details to follow before then.
