Breaking: Samsung kills the notch, showcases possible Galaxy S10 display

Notch? What’s that? Samsung has been openly critical of the notch-bearing displays we see on the iPhone and every Android phone under the sun, and it looks like the company won’t change its stance next year. At the Samsung OLED Forum conference on October 18 in China, Samsung revealed its new display technology, which will have everything from a fingerprint sensor to the camera modules underneath the panel instead of requiring a notch to accommodate them.

Galaxy S10’s bezel-less display and features revealed?

Galaxy S10 display

Many patents have already hinted at the Korean giant implementing fingerprint sensors and selfie cameras under the display, and it looks like all of it could soon be seen on an actual device. And the chances of that device being the Galaxy S10 are pretty high. Again, the best part would be the fact that Samsung isn’t taking the path that other manufacturers have taken and putting a notch on its next flagship. Samsung’s new display technology will also have the ability to transmit sound, although it’s unclear if Samsung is talking about regular speakers or something like bone conduction technology for transmitting sound to the user’s ears during calls.

What Samsung’s new technology doesn’t seem to support is something like Apple’s Face ID, or 3D face scanning as it’s more generally called. While a fingerprint sensor under the display would be great to have, some might not take kindly to the lack of a 3D scanner on the Galaxy S10, especially since it can be quite a fast way of authentication. Iris sensors are still more secure, but 3D scanning can be noticeably faster and more accurate even in low-light. Of course, there’s no telling exactly what the Galaxy S10 will have and what it won’t, but we’re certainly intrigued by what Samsung Display seems to have in store for us.

That would be killer. No notch, no holes in the screen…. Perfect. Though I’m not sure if would be ready for S10…….but maybe!

Maybe that pic on ice universe a few months ago for the S10 with all screen is a possibility

Glad no notch and as long as Samsung keeps with the no-notch design then I will continue to be a customer. The notch is effing ridiculous and beyond stupid and ugly!

It’s good that samsung dont join the notch hype. And also its good on making things smooth and perfect for their S10 model. Their 10 year anniversary phone. Cant wait it any longer 😀

Some say that it is written in the article and even shown in the image.

Looking good. Now release a model with a flat display and we’re talking.

Note that I’m not saying they all should be flat, for all of you sensitive distorted-glass lovers out there 🙂

no.. i as samsung curved phone user don’t have any distortion problem.. maybe your eye have a problem.. my advice, hit your head onto the concrete wall 10 times, keep hit your head until your eye turn normal..

I agree they should provide a flat model. The edge screens have prevented me from upgrading from my beloved flat S7 the past 2 years.

When they released S6 and S6 Edge, most bought the S6 Edge from there on Samsung focused on the majority which wanted curved displays.

it was bigger screen, bigger battery, not only about the edges. Same with s7e – bigger screen, bigger battery.

Well yeah. As a rule, people are stupid and follow stupid trends and fashions. They wear crappy shoes that destroy their feet and eat junk food that turns them into diabetics and have their limbs amputated. That doesn’t mean we all want to be like that.

As far as I know there will be indeed a flat display version of the S10, even though it will be the “lite” version, since flat displays are considered cheaper and somewhat outdated. But hey, buy what you like

Yeah, we need to start making square wheels soon. Rounds ones are so boring..

3.5mm jack, SD card, 4000+ mAh battery, 6/8GB RAM plus these technologies will make the S10 the true android flagship of 2019. Note 10 as well

There are rumours going on about Note10 missing the headphone jack, I hope and pray it’s false. 😢 I got the Note8 which is still fantastic, but if they actually do this, then they’ve lost a customer.

Really? This amazing thing they’re hoping to accomplish and you’re shaming them for not having a 3D facial scanner!? You said yourself it’s less secure than iris and slower than a FPS. Honestly, you can really tell how Apple has imprinted on people that they’re the best when they’re able to sell slower, less secure tech as “the best” and people believe it!
I’ll take a slower FPS over – no FPS and 3D face scanning only –
I’m hoping they’ll at least have the Iris scanner still with the FPS.
