Samsung Galaxy S10 leaks and rumors have suggested that the company’s 2019 flagship smartphone would feature a punch-hold display cut out for its single or dual-sensor front-facing camera, but a leaked image of a Galaxy S10 prototype seems to buck those rumors by flaunting a corner notch. If you think this setup is a bit odd, we’d have to agree. The corner notch in the image makes the Samsung Galaxy S10 look more like the awkward HTC U Ultra than a flagship device slated for 2019.
While we certainly wouldn’t put it past Samsung to experiment with a design like this, there’s absolutely no way that the device shown in the image will represent the final design of the Samsung Galaxy S10. As you can tell, the device in question is clearly a prototype which is being tested. It likely features all the components that will be in the Galaxy S10 at launch, but the body of the phone is simply a body shell with a generic glass panel over the display. The display will certainly feature the punch-hold cutouts we’ve been hearing so much about lately — don’t you worry. There are no leaks which show the actual display, but we do have an image of what the glass screen protectors for the phone will look like.
