When it comes to flagship Android phones, Samsung could be better defined as a perfectionist. Their flagship devices are extremely well rounded as they don’t skimp on anything, like headphone jacks, wireless charging or an IP Rating. Their OLED displays remain unmatched as they manufacture them in-house. So naturally, when a new Galaxy S series launch is just around the corner there’s a ton of hype from the Tech community around the world. So for fans of Samsung devices, we have exciting news.

According to a recent tweet from longtime community leaker, @Ice Universe, this was found in Android Pie’s new beta version for the dark mode. There’s a custom layout for an unreleased phone in the infographic. This might be the actual design of the upcoming S10 as previous leaks did suggest a bezeless display.
A lot of companies have these designs on some menus which don’t end up being anything, but with Samsung it’s different. The Galaxy S7 beta actually teased the design for the S8, consequently in S8 design cues for the S9 were found. So it can be said with some certainty, what you are looking at, might as well be the upcoming Galaxy S10.
If this does end up being the design for the S10, then Samsung will see a ton of praise coming from enthusiasts. There’s no obnoxious notch or big bezels, the design seems to be very minimalistic. This is in-line with Samsung’s design philosophy which focuses on functionality over everything else.
Samsung’s flagships have this prominent curve on the sides, but it’s not evident from the picture above. The Galaxy S10 will certainly have a curved display as it makes the experience so much better.
The only thing that hold back these phones is TouchWiz, which is a heavy reskin from Samsung on top of the Android OS. Samsung should design something along the lines of Hydrogen OS from OnePlus, which is so much faster and closer to stock Android. But whatever the Galaxy S10 turns out to be, we are sure Samsung will deliver a great phone like every year.
