It will reportedly come with 5G support, six cameras (four in the rear cameras and two in the front) and a gargantuan 6.7-inch display. The company is planning to launch at least three models of the Galaxy S10. This punch-hole is said to be a cutout for the front-facing selfie camera, and is key to enabling a notchless design and ditching a traditional bezel. This seems to be a separate entity entirely to the 7.3-inch Galaxy F (or Galaxy X) that sports the foldable display Samsung recently showcased.

As for those premium Galaxy S10 models, they should feature 5.8-inch and 6.44-inch displays, respectively.

Samsung is struggling in the Chinese smartphone market, selling only 700,000 smartphones in the world's most populous country in the third quarter of this year, according to US market researcher Strategy Analytics on Monday. The report says the three models will have "displays that range in size from 5.8 inches to 6.4 inches"-so instead of "big" and "small", it sounds like we're getting "small", "medium", and "large". You can get $200 off the Galaxy S9 for Black Friday. The S10 setup will probably be similar.

Samsung has big plans for the 10-year refresh of its flagship smartphone next year, and the device maker is in discussions with Verizon about a possible exclusive agreement for distribution in the United States, according to a Wall Street Journal report. Nearly as if the number of options users have has a direct influence on which model they're apt to choose. Samsung will also be offering a LED Flip and protective covers for the handsets and we might see other accessories along with it when the device launches.

The Samsung Galaxy S8 64GB Android smartphone is down to $398.99 unlocked on Amazon.

If you're in the market for the best smartphone in India and not going the iPhone way (pretty much why you're here), there are tons of great Android options. Samsung Galaxy Note 9 in White is coming on November 23. Cross your fingers prices don't follow suit - but good luck!
