The end of the year is upon us, and while that means a lot to many people, for the tech and mobile industry, it means the beginning of two months of nonstop marketing and hype. Of course this also includes the next non-foldable flagship from Samsung, which may have been completely leaked, but not yet at the pixel 3 level. Nevertheless, you can catch up on more and more details, including a new gimmick, to draw attention to the odd camera openings of the smartphone.
We've seen many renderings of the Galaxy S10, as well as cases and screen protectors that give us an idea of what Samsung's flagship will look like next year. Few, however, give us a better overview of their sizes compared to this year's titleholders. Suffice to say that they will be bigger than ever.
According to the Ice Universe the Galaxy S10 has a screen diagonal of 6.11 inches, while the Galaxy S10 + will reach 6.44 inches. Compared to the 5.8-inch Galaxy S9 and the 6.2-inch Galaxy S9 +, this is a considerable size difference. The Galaxy Note 10 will be even bigger, ranging from 6.4 inches to 6.75. The Galaxy S10 Lite may offer a deferment with a 5.75-inch screen.
That does not mean that the phones themselves will be bigger. This enlargement of the screen size will be possible as the upper panels are removed, which is made possible by the rather controversial section "Infinity-O". To really highlight this somewhat undesirable feature, the Galaxy S10 will, under certain circumstances, have a halo effect around the gap.
This has already been used in the Galaxy A8s and lights when the camera is used. It is nothing more than a visual gimmick, though it can also show users where to use the front camera. However, if you have such an awkward hole in the corner of the display, it's really hard to miss.
