Samsung’s Galaxy S9 family delivered two fantastic smartphones this year, but we’re expecting a few big upgrades for the S10 lineup. Today, a new report claims that Samsung is planning on making the screen size just a bit larger on the S10+.

Both the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S9 families included a larger counterpart in the S8+ and S9+. Both of these devices offered 6.2-inch displays compared to the smaller device’s 5.8-inch displays. That larger screen makes a big difference in the overall footprint of the device, allowing for an increased battery size and even a second camera on the S9+.
Apparently, the Galaxy S10+ will ship with a 6.44-inch display. That’s not a massively different screen size, but it could hint at Samsung making some changes. Perhaps that could include a bigger footprint to house a larger battery or even the rumored triple-camera setup. It could also point toward Samsung further slimming the bezels and giving us a larger screen as the result.
Whatever the change in screen size means for the device, it’s also notable that this would make the S10+ larger than the Note 9. Reports currently point toward that display measuring in at 6.38-inches. It’s also interesting to note that Apple is rumored to be launching a 6.4-inch iPhone this year as well.
Of course, it’s important to take this all with a grain of salt. Previous reports confidently pointed to the same 6.2-inch size, so this latest report could easily be incorrect. For now, we’ll just have to wait and see.
