A first-looks render of Samsung’s unreleased Galaxy S10 has appeared online, courtesy of leakster @OnLeaks. The render shows that the 2019 flagship will have a large punch-hole cutout on the front and a total of six cameras.
The full render shows a shape similar to this year’s Galaxy S9. There are subtle differences; the top and bottom bezels are thinner due to the displacement of the selfie camera and according to @OnLeaks, the 3.5mm jack will remain. The screen is said to be a 6.4-inch AMOLED display, similar to the one on the Galaxy S9 Plus.
The front-facing camera comprises two sensors and are now situated at the top-right corner, in a punch-hole cutout. We may consider this as an Infinity-O display, based on the range of new Infinity displays Samsung announced recently. The camera module on the front is a dual-sensor module, with the second sensor possibly being a depth sensor or a wide-angle lens. Put in there specifically for better Wefie shots.
Other rumored features includes an in-screen fingerprint scanner, which could be the one from Qualcomm announced recently. Samsung is also ditching the iris-scanner, as evident with the removal of the cameras from the front bezel.
So… Let me start all over again… Now THIS IS (still) your very first and early look at the #Samsung #GalaxyS10 Plus! (updated official looking 5K renders + 360° video) on behalf of @91mobiles -> https://t.co/oED66jddR2 Cheers! ? pic.twitter.com/WSybUEuElf

Meanwhile at the back, it seems that Samsung has taken some design ideas from the Galaxy A9. From the render, the Galaxy S10 also seems set to feature four cameras. Although, it is unknown if the camera arrangement will be similar to the Galaxy A9 or if it will sport a completely new layout.
Do note that the early renders seen in the video is based on early information gathered so far, so nothing here is final until it is announced and should be taken with a pinch of salt. However, the Samsung Galaxy S10 is expected to be launched sometime next January. Until then, we’ll just have to wait with bated breathe for any official announcement.
