More details are coming out around Samsung’s family of Galaxy S10 devices. With the attention is now on the S10 Plus the latest information give us the clearest idea yet of the upcoming South Korean flagship.

The S10 Plus is the third of four handsets, lying just behind the powerful Galaxy S10 Ultra (which is expected to be the ‘specs monster’ with multiple cameras and potentially 5G connectivity), just ahead of the standard Galaxy S10, and well ahead of the entry-level S10 model. The Plus likely denotes a larger screen size (much as it does with the S9 and S9 Plus).

The latest leaked details confirm the 6.4 inch screen, a 1440×3040 resolution display, and up to five cameras (two selfie cameras and three on the read). We also have the dimensions of the handset, according to reports at SamMobile:

The Galaxy S10+ dimensions are said to be 157.5 x 75.0 x 7.8mm compared to 157.7 x 73.8 x 8.5mm of the Galaxy S9+. Some reports suggest that Samsung will ship its new Infinity-O display with all models of the Galaxy S10. The Infinity-O display has a hole in the active display area for the front camera. It’s a way of ditching the notch in this seemingly neverending race to stretch the display as much as possible.

Since the Galaxy S10+ is expected to have a dual front camera, it would obviously have a larger hole in the display. The other two variants may only have a single front camera so they will require a smaller hole.

All of these details back up the notion that the Galaxy S10 Plus, the ‘large’ version of the standard S10 handset is going to feel physically close to the Galaxy Note 9. It may not come with an embedded holder for the S-Pen, but I’m intrigued to know if the BlueTooth enabled stylus will work with the S10 Plus (or any of the S10 handsets).

Questions were asked about the Galaxy Note 9 before it was launched and if it would be the last of Samsung’s ‘phablet’ handsets. If the S10 Plus can deliver the same experience, and the Note 9 sales do not pick up, there’s every chance that the S10 Plus will become the de facto ‘big handset’ in Samsung’s porfolio and will be pushed towards enterprise customers.

That will leave the Galaxy S10 Ultra as the consumer handset with the ridiculous spec sheet, the regular S10 as the base model, and the S10 Lite as an entry level to bring up Samsung’s average revenue per user of its leading smartphones.

Samsung is expected to announce the Galaxy S10 family early in 2019.
