First Samsung Galaxy S10+ hands-on video reveals awkward screen protector cutout


Ladies and gentleman, we give you the Samsung Galaxy S10+. After months of leaks, rumors, and speculation, the first hand-on video of the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S10+ has hit the web. While we’d like to say that the video gives us an amazing in-depth look at the phone’s hardware and software, it’s really not much more than someone showing off the front of the phone with the lock screen lit up for a few seconds.

What’s interesting is that the Samsung Galaxy S10+ shown in the video is sporting screen protector which has cutouts for the double-wide hole-punch cutout for the front-facing camera, but also a second one for the phone’s in-display ultrasonic fingerprint sensor. We’ve heard rumors that the ultrasonic fingerprint sensor in Samsung’s new phones may not play nice with third-party screen protectors, but we didn’t expect to see a cutout in the middle of the display.

Talk about awkward.

We know that there’s a huge market for screen protectors these days since people want to protect their investments, but we’re not exactly sure who would want to buy one with such an obnoxious blemish and slap it on a smartphone that costs more than $1,000.

If you’re planning on buying the Samsung Galaxy S10 or the S10+, would you consider buying a screen protector with a cutout right in the middle?
