Since the notched display and the bezel-less design are now the dominant trends in the smartphone world, many hope for the foldable handsets to become the next big thing in one or two years. However, those who were waiting for a foldable Galaxy S10/X will probably be disappointed, because Samsung's next-gen flagship is apparently going to feature an Infinity display just like the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S9 lineups.
According to the South Korean website The Bell, the Galaxy S10 and Galaxy S10+ will also pack a fingerprint reader mounted under the display, as well as "3D sensing camera modules" that might improve the existing facial recognition capabilities of Samsung's flagships. More than just better biometric authentication, the 3D camera might also come with 360-degree image and video capture.
In addition to the above, it is also said that the Infinity display used for the anniversary Galaxy flagships has a size of 5.8 inches for the S10 and 6.3 inches for the S10+.
Obviously, none of these details has been confirmed by the tech giant based in South Korea so far, and since there are a few good months left until the first official bits of information show up, we might as well talk a bit about what you wish to receive as a "Samsung Galaxy X Anniversary Edition" or something like that.
Should Samsung turn its flagship mobile device into a wearable bracelet, or maybe make it small enough to be implanted? In the end, if they decide to drop the idea of a foldable phone, it would be interesting to see Samsung jump to a whole new technology or even returning to one that was never able to get the recognition it deserved, for example the curved design that LG used for the G Flex and the G Flex 2?
