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.

It’s mainly cheap screen protectors that cover the camera and other sensors. An extra layer of glass no matter how thin and clear it is will still cause some image and colour distortion. Like taking a photo through a window. This one looks like a screen protector for the Oppo Find X or more likely the Vivo or other phone with a pop up camera. Not saying it is, but it definitely looks like it.

Lite = best design and worst specs.

The S10 is looking to be similar size as the s9 or 8 which is a good sign and the chin on the bottom of the “premium” models does look thicker than the lite.

The lite is definitely looking to be an exciting model if the specs are same as the premium models minus the 3 camera on the back and fsp under the screen. Thus making it a difficult decision to pick between the lite and normal S10 as I do prefer a more compact phone and the lite is shaping to be same size as an iPhone 8.

Most likely it will be an S10 plus with the 5g chip added. It won’t need a different screen protector.

You are right there, but it’s mainly cheap screen protectors that are like that.
