While the South Korean firm has yet to confirm any speculation surrounding its upcoming devices, sources spoke with Bloomberg to confirm that the Galaxy S10 and 10 Plus will sport bezel-less curved OLED screens, while a third cheaper option will retain the traditional flat design. The attribute utilizes facial recognition technology for unlocking goal of the smartphone. He's still working on his full-length Galaxy S10 video, but the teaser below gives us plenty to be excited about while we wait.

Albeit a bummer for some, it's nearly confirmed that Samsung has even ditched it's marquee, Iris Scanner for the sake of minimising top bezels and making the way for Ultrasonic Fingerprint sensors. Samsung Galaxy A9 (2018) features a 24MP front camera with f/2.0 aperture.

"Compared to optical fingerprint sensors, the S10 ultrasonic fingerprint sensor is faster and has a larger recognition area, and 30% of the screens may be recognized", Ice Universe wrote in a tweet. Previous rumors have pointed out that Samsung is experimenting with its mid-range smartphone lineup so that the manufacturer can decide if these changes are worth getting ported to the 2019 Galaxy S10 range. Later, the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge were also launched in White colors. An exclusive twilight coloured edition of the same is mostly thought to be unveiled. It's still a 200 MB+ download, though, which is higher than the usual size of Samsung's security updates for devices launched with Android Oreo out of the box. Rumor has it the device will feature a 7.3-inch screen that folds in half like a wallet. There is an 8-megapixel selfie camera.

As ZDNet explains, Samsung's 7nm process has a 27nm fin pitch, and a 54nm gate pitch, which results in the smallest FinFET transistors reported to date. The other specs of the handset are still not known.
