The market is paying attention to foldable phones and 5G smartphones as a wild card to recover Samsung Electronics' poor performance. It doesn't feel quite like Android on a $1,000 Galaxy Note 9, but it's much closer than entry-level Android phones were just a few short years ago. What this new UI will be called is not known at the moment; however, it has been tipped to us that the phone is now being tested with firmware version F900USQU0ARJ5 in the United States.
This latest revelation provides a very strong indication that Samsung's flagship device will be the first major smartphone to come without any kind of bezel around its screen, with its face buttons hidden underneath. Even though the official announcement is still a way off, we already have a good idea what to expect in the S10.
"Demand for ultra-small, high-resolution image sensors are growing as smartphones evolve to deliver new and more exciting camera experiences for users", said Ben K. Hur, Vice President, System LSI marketing, Samsung Electronics. Chinese phone makers are have also begun to push the envelope instead of simply copying everything Apple does, and we've seen some interesting new designs as a result. But there is one thing which you might hate about it. This trend has shaped the screen thin bezel that we now own. We've heard way less about that, but it's something to keep an eye out for. Because it's absolutely ridiculous.
Another tweet confirms that this ultrasonic tech will be exclusive to Samsung devices, this means rest of the devices coming in 2019 with an in-display fingerprint sensor will have to stick with the inferior optical ones. No notch, no pop-up camera, nothing. There's also a dual camera on the back.
