Galaxy S10 design changes will be ‘very significant,’ says CEO

The Galaxy S10 will be Samsung’s 10th anniversary flagship and given that the Galaxy S9 was a minor upgrade, fans are hoping for substantial improvements on the company’s next flagship smartphone. DJ Koh, CEO of Samsung’s mobile division, has said that the Galaxy S10 design changes will be “very significant.”

This remark came during a talk with Chinese media earlier in the week. Koh didn’t go into the specifics of these changes and was likely referring to the overall design of the upcoming flagship when compared with the Galaxy S9 which was an incremental update over the Galaxy S8.

Galaxy S10 design changes

Samsung isn’t expected to do anything out of the box with this device, in that the Galaxy S10 won’t be its much-awaited foldable smartphone. It will look very much like a Galaxy S-series flagship but may have an increased screen-to-body ratio and perhaps a slimmer profile.

The Galaxy S10 is also expected to be Samsung’s first smartphone with a triple-camera system. Of the three models that the company might announce, two are believed to feature a triple-camera system at the back. That in itself would add a new design element to the Galaxy S series.

Koh also mentioned that the Galaxy S10 will be offered in “amazing” colors so it’s possible that the company may be cooking up a new color option for the device. Reports suggest that a new green color option may be offered. Samsung hasn’t made a green flagship ever since it offered the Galaxy S6 edge in Emerald Green back in 2015. There’s also a possibility that Samsung could offer gradient color options with its next flagship.

We still have a ways to go before the Galaxy S10 becomes due. Samsung is expected to unveil the device early next year. We will certainly be hearing a lot more rumors about this device before then.

So say hello to notch and goodbye to 3.5 mm headphone jack

Smaller profile would be nice but keep the 5.8 size screen.

Just give me a nice 1 handed friendly S10 with the following size 144 x 68.1 x 8 mm and with these specs min 6gb ram, 128 internal storage, triple camera on the back, front camera at 12mp with ois, dual speakers and better software updates.

If they do that then they can have my money!!

So that’s it, Samsung’s “significant new design” amounts to some different cosmetics? Oh dear!

Contanto que não tenha o tumor (notch), tudo bem…

Colour-wise I’d love to see Samsung do gradients but in a more subtle manner, using black. For example, instead of a red phone, have the phone with a gradient between bright blood red and black or bright emerald green and black. I think it’d look awesome. As for the design of the phone, as long as they don’t make them even bigger and don’t add a f*cking notch, I’ll be fine. I personally would like to see one of the phones (the normal S10) return to a nearly bezelless 5″ at 16:9. I think 18:9 screens have proved themselves useless… Read more »

a few big games and apps have changed to fit the 18:9 – Facebook, snapchat etc. all have.
but also Star Wars Heroes has adapted to fit more on the 18:9 screen – an example of the game I play. I am sure there are others too.

None of the video content apps has – YouTube, Netflix etc. Instagram hasn’t either. And no content creator has – everyone still produces content in 16:9.
There’s no reason to keep insisting on an aspect ratio that never really made any sense when no one adopts it.

Most Netflix originals are 2:1, not 16:19.
