TeD, 06 Feb 2019Big hole and big bezel for a 750 euro flagship...Huawei must be laughing hardNervous laughter
At first i thought it is a fake phone or a dummy, but after looking at redish bloody display I can say it is a Samsung phone.
Seems like the "E" stands for Extra large status bar enforced by the big, poorly placed camera hole. I don't really care about a phone being ugly or pretty, but eating up so much usable screen real estate to decrease bezel size seems counterproductive. Still, this remains the only viable option to replace my S7, as Samsung is the only company making a phone that I can use one-handed, has top specs (although this model falls so short of the other S10 models, that it cannot be called a flagship) and will likely get root & custom kernels & ROMs. If I get this phone, I'll be happy it's not as expensive as its siblings, although I would pay extra to get the triple camera, more storage & RAM, under screen fingerprint reader, etc. in this form factor.
Kangal, 06 Feb 2019Nope.
It's around 8mm's diameter, or roughly 3mm in radius plus 1mm extra radius for bezel of... moreNo idea where you learned how to measure or read a ruler...
The bottom of the camera hole is at about the 8mm mark on the ruler, and the top of the hole is at about the 2.5mm mark - and definitely not at the 0 mark. So its at about 5mm, and no where near your 8mm diameter claim. All the same I think it's a big punch hole - Huawei dod a much better job with theirs.
Same with the bezels - top is no where near your 8mm's nor even the 5mm you mention. Top and sides are the same width and closer to 4mm or just under. Yes, the chin is bigger, though not going to try and guess it without a ruler next to it.
Okay, what the hell? Firstly, why is it 5 mm? OLED is supposed to allow you to make it smaller than 4 mm. Second, what's with that chin? It's as big as the S9's. I don't think this is real or maybe this is an older prototype. There's no way they're that idiotic
Manhurt, 06 Feb 2019The fp scanner is same height of camera. Who put their finger on fp scanner like that?If you hold your phone in your right hand facing towards you, you'll find your thumv will be in this position. On my Samsung S7, this is where the screen turn on/off button is. So it actually makes sense for the fingerprint reader to be here.
wow all these chinese fans are here commenting sh**t, no matter how much you guys talk, people will still buy it including me, fu***ng trolls,haters.
Especially with that chin and awkward FP placement.
Hope s10 would be good looking.
But i think i would rock my s9 for more two years.
abigfanoftechs, 06 Feb 2019It's a small phone.It is still too high, especially for left-handed users.
On a different note, why people still calling "leak" and not "news" or "update" ? leak is when there's unintended information for which the company wouldn't like it to happen....
99% of all the "leaks" today are free commercials for the product
Nzi97, 06 Feb 2019No one want to point out that the fp scanner, is to damm highIt's a small phone.
I absolutely hate the new status bar icons..
Also, can't they make a Plus version without the stupid selfie camera? I'd buy it!
Selfies are for girls and fb sheeps..
The fp scanner is same height of camera. Who put their finger on fp scanner like that?
Looks like a freaking huge dead pixel. Why not just put the camera behind the speaker grill in some way? Theres holes in, would be a thicker phone but if the main reason is a good placement for the camera front camera, hide it, not just put a dot in a useful area of the screen.
The fingerprint scanner / power button combo location does make sense since you hit it with thumb finger, it shouldn't be easily reached
The last Oracle, 06 Feb 2019"Rough measure suggests the selfie camera diameter in the display is 10mm."
More like 5mm, ... moreNope.
It's around 8mm's diameter, or roughly 3mm in radius plus 1mm extra radius for bezel of the camera (total 4mm radius).
In addition, the side bezels are pretty large at ~5mm's wide. While the top and bottom bezels are small at ~8mm's wide. This means they aren't equal, so it doesn't look that well, pretty poor design decision if you ask... anyone.
I think this sets a precedence. I'm pretty certain the mid-range S10, high-end S10, and note-end S10 will have the same quirks.
