The company still appears to be determined to keep shrinking the bezels on its devices without resorting to displaying notches, a product element that’s been garnering significant traction in the smartphone industry over the course of this year.

The upcoming Galaxy Note 9 is expected to follow The Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9 Plus that both skipped screen cutouts much like the Galaxy S10 lineup, according to recent reports. At the expense of its ability to follow suit with the latest and greatest mobile advancements – three-dimensional cameras used for depth sensing and mapping, Samsung still insists with that approach. The feature was already offered to consumers by Apple’s iPhone X and Xiaomi’s Mi 8 flagships while ending up featuring display notches as a direct aftermath of including it, polarizing a vocal portion of the tech enthusiast community.
Israeli startup Mantis Vision is said to have made a collaboration with Samsung to create an entirely notchless 3D camera having the goal to commercialize it with the Galaxy S10 lineup planned to be released in early 2019, probably at the next iteration of Barcelona, Spain-based Mobile World Congress. The Galaxy S10 group is suggested to consist of three devices, one of which will mightly feature a triple-camera setup, with all of them being expected to debut with 3D cameras and in-display fingerprint readers.
