Forget Samsung’s Galaxy S10 And Note 10, This Is The Smartphone To Buy
Samsung’s Galaxy S10 and Galaxy Note 10 are solid, if unremarkable upgrades, and there are some great Black Friday deals available on them. But anyone looking to a truly cutting edge Samsung smartphone needs to wait for this.
Thanks to new information from acclaimed Samsung insiders Evan Blass (aka @evleaks) and Ice Universe, we now know the Galaxy S11 will dramatically change size and sport a new design compared to its predecessor. And that’s just the start.
Blass explains that Samsung is making the Galaxy S11 range even larger with three new screen sizes: the 6.4-inch Galaxy S11, 6.7-inch Galaxy S11+ and 6.9-inch Galaxy S11 5G. This compares to screen sizes of 6.1-inches (S10), 6.4-inches (S10+) and 6.7-inches (S10 5G). Yes, Samsung’s standard S11 will have a display as large as this year’s S10+, though he does warn that Samsung may yet opt for a more conservative 6.2-inch panel.
Blass also says Samsung will offer 5G versions of all models so, presumably, the Galaxy S11 5G will need a new name (‘Max’ seems to be popular). He adds that Samsung will only use curved-edge displays next year, with the flat panel used on the Galaxy S10 Lite not being repeated. Personally, I prefer flat displays (no interface warping, more durable) but that’s just me.
