Display wars still on: Galaxy Note 10 tipped for bigger screen than iPhone XS Max

Galaxy Note 9

  • Speculation suggests the Samsung Galaxy Note 10 will have a 6.66-inch display.
  • This would be larger than any previous Galaxy Note or Galaxy S series device.
  • It would also mean the Note series would once again have a larger display than the biggest iPhone.

Samsung is opting for a 6.66-inch display on next year’s Samsung Galaxy Note 10, according to a recent report from The BellThis would not only be the largest size display on a Galaxy Note or Galaxy S series device, but would also be larger than the display on the iPhone XS Max.

While the Note lineup has historically had a larger display than the biggest iPhone, the screen on the iPhone XS Max (6.5 inches) is slightly bigger than the one on the Galaxy Note 9 (6.4-inches), though the iPhone does have a notch.

The Bell‘s article does not state how a display of this size will affect the overall size of the Galaxy Note 10. As the device’s bezels will likely continue to decrease in size, it may not result in the phone’s dimensions being that different.

The Bell acknowledges that it is still early in the phone’s development cycle. However, it says that since the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 disaster, the company has extended the amount of time it spends developing phones from six months to one year (a decision that could explain this).

The article also quotes an industry insider as saying that while it is possible the phone’s specs will change over the next year, it is unusual for the display size of a phone to change after it has been decided.

This isn’t the first rumor we have heard about the Galaxy Note 10. Back in September, it was said that Samsung has reportedly given the phone the codename DaVinci. Meanwhile, just last week we heard that Samsung is considering removing the headphone jack from the device.
