Possible Galaxy S10 benchmark hints at 19:9 display aspect ratio

Hot on the heels of Samsung’s mobile division CEO confirming “significant” design changes for the Galaxy S10, what could be the first benchmark for the tenth-anniversary flagship has popped up online. Interestingly, the benchmark suggests that part of those significant design changes could be a display with a 19:9 aspect ratio. Current Samsung flagships with Infinity displays use the 18.5:9 aspect ratio.

Smaller bezels, or just higher screen resolution?

The benchmark in question is HTML5test, which has published results of an SM-G405F running Android 9.0 Pie. Yes, that model number doesn’t seem correct for a Galaxy S flagship. But Samsung has a history of testing its flagships with fake model numbers ahead of release, and SM-G4xx has often been used for Galaxy S phones. And for the SM-G405F, the benchmark lists a resolution ofย 412 x 869 pixels, slightly higher than the 412 x 846-pixel resolution listed for the Galaxy S9. It’s a clear hint that the Galaxy S10 display could be taller and points at a slightly increased aspect ratio of 19:9.

The higher aspect ratio also supports rumors of notably reduced bezels on Samsung’s upcoming flagship. However, a notch is unlikely to be present on any of the Galaxy S10 models. Well, at least if we go by how Samsung continues to make fun of the notch on competing devices. Nothing can be said for certain at this point, but with the first possible Galaxy S10 benchmark now online, we should see an influx of such appearances as the weeks go by.

That’s definitely a notch. On a previous news post I said in the comments that it was just a matter of time until they felt the pressure to jump on the notch bandwagon and everybody went on to dislike my comment. Well guess what, joke’s on you people, you know who you are.

I can see it being that ratio if they kept the s9 size but increase the screen to 6.1

Though much rather have 5.8 in screen and smaller phone
