Pity there won't be a S10 Plus model with flat screen. Curved screens are gimmick only and makes it much harder to apply screen protector/tempered glass protector.
I hope this is not the final version. The pixel 3 XL has less bezel around the top of the screen, and what is showed in this, is a lot more. Also, I don’t actually get how no one is getting the same bottom bezel as the iPhone X/XS/XS Max. I dream about the S10 with a same bezel as the Huawei Mate 20 ( No-Pro), who has less bezel than everyone and is using actually a f*cking IPS panel. Is this is the S10, there is no potencial reason to buy this thing. No more chin!
Anonymous, 03 Jan 2019what does it do differently to my S7 edge? (which is still snappy as anything)be smart enough and figure it out instead of asking others .. lol
Peteraven, 03 Jan 2019Hope that's not s10 lite. What is a chin? Btw The chin is the bottom bezel.
notch or punch hole display is stupid design. it just adding cost for no benefit. only for users, it also have bad effect to company revenue. just see how apple's revenue and stock price get notched.
punch hole my foot, it looks even worse with that top bezel. You wonder whats going on in that designing room of samsung. S9 was a failure. This one will be a bigger failure. S8 still rules in this design and you don't need to change it. All the other manufacturers are going with the S8 design with SD 710 and 845 at 50% lower the price + stock android. Samsung is losing it big time. Watch out for Huawei, Asus, Motorola, Nokia and even Blackberry. Not to mention Oneplus. Xiaomi is bottling it with their ridiculous software as well. 2019 will be the start of cheap phone galore.

Still looks like an ancient relic compared to Samsungs flexible phone. a
I think I will stick to Galaxy S9 for a while, I cant stand this punch hole thing and S9 looks waaaay better than this !!!
Anonymous, 03 Jan 2019you cant be serious.. i have the s9+ and its beautiful .. I hate these new punch holesyeah, maybe your 9+ is the best design yet. My wife has a S8, and now, im thinking just keep it. the ole, tear drop, chin thing arent good design elements, and lets face it, if people like us are on here bitching about a chin and hole, might be best to keep what we have, and your might be the best of last designs
stupid samsung designers made it worse again, cmon t least make it symmetrical.., most oppo phones already removed top bezels
I like chins, I dislike curved edges. Samsung is going the right way. Sadly, I wish they would make the phones a touch shorter, rather than the screen taller.
maybe they could have just remove the chin bezels and keep the top part bezels like the S9 for the camera and the scanner
xreactx, 03 Jan 2019Xiaomi Mi Mix 3 and Honor Magic 2 did it better with the slider mechanism.Yet they failed to make it "better" when they did not include a headphone port.
So instead of a waterdrop notch that would fit inside a standard notification area they put a hole in the display that will require a double height notification area like the Essential phone. On top of that they put it in a corner where the battery icon should be and made the phone unsymmetrical aka ugly...
Does samsung not have a single competent designer in the long chain of people that had to approve this?
