The phone will run a special version of Android developed by Samsung and Google. The user interface is expected to heavily depend on which of the two of designs the company finalise. The Korean giant is reportedly working on a foldable smartphone, a 5G-enabled smartphone and cheaper version of its flagship model for 2019.
It will be a while before official specifications are released for the S10, but today's report indicated that Samsung could reveal details about its long-rumored foldable phone in the foreseeable future.
Samsung Galaxy J6 features a 5.6-inch HD+ Super AMOLED display with 18:5:9 aspect ratio. For reference, the iPhone XS Max clocks in at 208 grams, and the S9+ weighs 189 grams. Samsung might have to cut down on the battery's size because of this. This has been recently seen in many high-end Chinese phones. There are also some concerns around mass production. Since the notch houses just the camera, it will allow Samsung to make a small notch on the top with all the other sensors embedded inside the frame of the device.
The Samsung Developer Conference, happening next month in San Francisco, could be the big debut for the long-awaited product. For this reason, Samsung probably won't be able to show a physical model of the foldable phone in November; instead, a "conceptual" image will be presented. The report also states that it features an in-display fingerprint scanner and an under display front-facing camera as well.

He said the acquisition would give Red Hat greater scale and resources to increase the impact of open source software. The company will be paying through cash and debt, as opposed to share exchange, but did not specify the proportions.
As for the Bloomberg report, it doesn't say exactly who the sources are, but does say that the information comes from "people familiar with the matter", so there's a fair chance that at least some of it is accurate. The Galaxy S10 and S10+ will have curved edge displays with nearly no bezel on top or bottom, triple cameras on their backsides, with front cameras being embedded underneath the front glass.
Samsung is said to be testing multiple Galaxy S10 prototypes and there's no telling if a version with no dedicated headphone jack will make it to market this year.
Far less uncertain are Samsung's plans about the S10, which the report claims will have a 5.8-inch OLED screen curved on both sides - just like all recent Galaxy S phones - almost no bezel on top and bottom, and round-shaped corners. Bloomberg also reported Friday that the Korean giant is "in talks with Verizon to launch its Galaxy S10 in the USA with a fifth-generation wireless chipset".
Now, Samsung wants to build a next-generation Galaxy smartphone prototype that will not possess a 3.5mm audio port. The S10 will likely be the only high-end smartphone with it to come out in the first half of 2019.
