Samsung might ditch circular design for next Galaxy Watch models

Samsung might ditch circular design for next Galaxy Watch models

Thankfully, one trend Samsung has avoided is the "notch". "While foldable display makes senses for phones now, it is of very little goal on smartwatches and fitness bands currently", said Harksang Kim, senior vice president and head of mobile visual R&D, Samsung Electronics. The Galaxy S10 could have a tiny hole like what was teased earlier for the Galaxy A8s. Given that Samsung has invested heavily on the rotating circular bezel design it would be interesting to see whether the company launches an Apple Watch-like square Galaxy Watch in future.

A contributor at XDA Developers who goes by the Twitter handle Max Weinbach shows the latest images that come with the Galaxy Note 9 Android 9 Pie update. The back of the device is showcased here with the dual camera set up along with the LED flash and the fingerprint sensor placed below them.


The ultrasonic under-display fingerprint sensor will apparently be from Qualcomm. Do you think it in deed is the Galaxy S10. As per a report by Ice Universe, "The S10 cancels the iris sensor", "the ultrasonic fingerprint [sensor] is enough to replace it". Samsung Galaxy A9 (2018) features a 24MP front camera with f/2.0 aperture. Max at SamsungMobile.News says that he doesn't believe we'll see all-screen smartphones surface until 2020, but Samsung's work on it right now means that the technology could arrive sooner rather than later. Neither the Galaxy S8 or Galaxy S9 had true white color options, opting instead for shades of silver, which was also true for the (recalled) Galaxy Note 7, and the Galaxy Note 8 never even had that to choose from, unless you count the Olympic edition of the phone. Video recording and voice recognition will also get a boost from the new processor.
