What feature are you hoping to see on the Galaxy S10? Samsung is reportedly working with Mantis Vision on the venture but again, it may not happen in time for inclusion in the Galaxy S10. One of those features could be an in-display fingerprint scanner.

The Bell's sources also claimed that Samsung has already informed its suppliers to start providing components for the foldable phone - rumored to be called Galaxy X - starting November of this year. The Galaxy S9 was then given the codename "Star" because Samsung believed that the device will be star of the industry this year, though that did not pan out in the face of competition with the iPhone X.
