First big Galaxy S10 report may have just revealed key details

The Korean Times further noted that "In the latest evaluation of the magazine that came out on April 13, the Korean tech giant's Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus received 81 overall points each to make it the top of the list". In Apple's case, the notch serves a distinct objective - it houses all the sensors the iPhone X uses for its Face ID feature.

Since its official launch in November this device has won universal praise with its stunning edge-to-edge OLED display, upgraded camera and fast A11 Bionic processor making it the best iPhone to date.

Even if the iPhone X's notch has its share of critics, it's proven popular enough to where phone makers want to incorporate that design decision into their own models.

Samsung's current budget-oriented J-series smartphone lineup comprises the Galaxy J2, J5 and the J7, but findings from a new report suggest that the company could add the Galaxy J6 into the fray as well. The display notch allows for more useable screen space, allowing several UI elements such as the notification bar to pushed into the released space for liberating more space for usable stuff. The schematics doesn't show the physical fingerprint scanner, and the report claims that Samsung will finally integrate in-display fingerprint sensor for biometric authentication.

Apple's iPhone X intelligently introduced the 3D Face ID to market as part of their TrueDepth camera which is clearly superior to Samsung's 2D face recognition feature.

Probably the biggest letdown about the S10 though, is that the phone will likely look the exact same as the S9 and even the S8. Secondly, Samsung finally seem to have gained "courage" to do away with the 3.5mm audio jack, and use USB Type-C port and Bluetooth for audio routing. Surprisingly, there's no Bixby key seen on the render - has Samsung given up on forcing its software down user's throats? For now, we're taking this one with a pinch of salt.

While the aforementioned patent offers nothing new per se when it comes to display, there is another document that has been spotted online, which reveals a second patent filed by Samsung.
