The front camera was embedded in the Amoled-matrix, using the technology of infinity-O, the fingerprint scanner was hidden under it, the conversational speaker was transferred to the junction of the screen and the top face. Thus, the display of the Samsung Galaxy S10 occupies almost 90% of the front panel - simply beauty.
