Say goodbye to the ‘notch’ and hello to Infinity-O, the Galaxy S10 SM-G973U 128GB Smartphone from Samsung features the nearly bezel-less, all-screen Infinity-O display. To help push the screen from edge-to-edge, Samsung laser-cut a hole in the front corner of the display to accommodate the 10MP dual-pixel wide-angle selfie camera. The screen itself is a large 6.1″ QHD Dynamic AMOLED Infinity Display. It’s also certified to support HDR10+ for a cinematic experience and is designed to produce brilliant and realistic images.
The curved, Infinity-O display also houses impressive mobile security with a built-in ultrasonic fingerprint reader. Simply touch the screen and soundwaves scan your fingerprint to unlock your phone nearly instantly. By utilizing soundwaves instead of optics, it reads the 3D ridges and contours of your finger. Plus, the ultrasonic tech means it will work when wet.
On the reverse of the S10, you’ll find Samsung’s pro-grade triple-camera array. It includes 16MP ultra-wide, 12MP dual-pixel wide-angle, and 12MP 2x telephoto cameras. With a lens for almost every situation, Samsung added AI to make sure they give you the best results possible.

Both front and back cameras can capture at 4K UHD quality, with the rear array adding support for HDR10+ recording.
