Newly leaked Galaxy S10 protective film has no hole for the front camera

As we move closer to the Galaxy S10 launch in February 2019, more and more leaks keep springing up. Last week, a purported Galaxy S10 Lite protective film showed up revealing a flat Infinity-O display and symmetrical bezels.

Now a new leak has surfaced online showing more purported protective films for the three Galaxy S10 models, the regular S10, the S10+ and the S10 Lite. Samsung also has a fourth S10 model with six cameras and 5G support.

The Galaxy S10 Lite could feature the smallest chin

The latest Galaxy S10 leak also reiterates what we have been seeing all the while. The bezels on the S10+ and the regular S10 are not symmetrical with the chin being slightly wider than the other three sides. The S10 Lite, meanwhile, has symmetrical bezels on all the four sides. And it has the smallest chin among the three.

As has been reported earlier, the S10 Lite display is flat while the other two models feature a curved display. But contrary to some previous leaks, none of the three have a cut-out for the front camera. All three models will reportedly feature an Infinity-O display, which has a hole in the panel itself for the front camera, eliminating the need for a notch.

It doesn’t mean there won’t be an Infinity-O display even if the films don’t have a cutout for the camera. Their provenance isn’t known and such components often don’t tell the entire story about an upcoming device. An earlier leak suggests that the display hole on the Galaxy S10 might be smaller than it is on the Galaxy A8s. The Galaxy S10 Lite and Galaxy S10 will have a single front camera while the Galaxy S10+ will pack a dual front camera.

Samsung is expected to unveil the Galaxy S10 at MWC 2019 in February.
