The Galaxy S10 is shaping up to be an interesting device, with a constant stream of leaks trying their best to guess how the smartphone is going to turn out. The latest bunch have claimed that the Plus variant will sport an unusual pill-shaped selfie camera hole at the top-right corner of the screen. The regular one might get a single hole.
You can see this in action in the render above, shared courtesy 91mobiles and OnLeaks. The latter thinks the Galaxy S10+ is going to carry an astonishing 4 cameras at the back instead of the expected 3, all arranged in a horizontal line. The module might include a depth, wide-angle, telephoto, and standard lens.
The dual snappers at the front are the most unique piece of the puzzle. Samsung has already announced this type of “Infinity-O” display, so there’s a very real chance this is what the smartphone will end up looking like. We’re not sure how the One UI will deal with this massive intrusion.

Even third-party apps will probably have a tough time handling this unusual design, as will photos and videos. The conventional notch style at least allows for the status bar to divide itself neatly in two. This pill-shaped hole looks like it’ll cut into the status bar and the content below.
Surprisingly, it looks like the 3.5mm headphone jack is here to stay, despite rumors to the contrary. The bezels look thinner than ever before and the curves still slope at the sides. The Galaxy S10+ is almost certainly going to have an in-display fingerprint scanner based on ultrasonic technology. Iris scanning is likely out and may be replaced by facial recognition.
Twitter tipster Ice Universe has also posted some intriguing leaks about the Samsung phone. One apparently depicts protective films for the Galaxy S10+ with holes for the selfie cameras. The other is probably a photoshopped version of the Galaxy S9+ with an Infinity-O design.
