Galaxy S10+ screen protector almost perfectly fits a Galaxy Note 7

Remember the Galaxy Note 7? The last of Samsung’s flagship smartphones with the traditional home button and big bezels met an unfortunate early demise, and the company moved on to the Galaxy S8 and introduced us to the Infinity display, which threw away most of that bezel and the home button for a higher screen-to-body ratio.

Come next year, Samsung will bring us the Galaxy S10 with even smaller bezels, and an image from Weibo shows just how much screen the Galaxy S10+ may offer in dimensions barely larger than the Galaxy Note 7.

The Galaxy S10+ is expected to have a 6.44-inch display, nearly 0.8 inches larger than the 5.7-inch display on the Galaxy Note 7. Sure, these new Infinity displays aren’t as wide as the traditional displays from before the bezel-less era, but the compromise is worth it when you consider the extra screen estate consumers are now getting.

Of course, whether everyone is going to like the extra screen estate enough to not be bothered by that camera cutout on the corner is something only time will tell. Those cutouts will reduce the actual usable display area in practice, although that still won’t take away from the fact that the Galaxy S10 will offer a larger viewing area thanks to the tiny bezels.

Someone still have original Note 7 ?

It is looking more and more likely we’ll end up with an S and Note release at the same time with IFA (or MWC depending on how they play it) being held for their foldable phones

There’s no leaks about Note 10

Just one I have heard and that’s a 6.75″ screen. It’s probably a bit early though for reliable leaks.

This also shows us the size of the black bars you’ll constantly see on your phone because absolutely NO CONTENT is in those weird aspect ratios. Everything remained and will remain in 16:9. But OEMs just ran out of actually useful ideas so here we are: oversized phones, holes and useless screen ratios. At this point I’m just hoping for the smartphone market crash and paradigm shift that everyone keeps predicting so that the phones can actually go back to being normal. This insanity of “thinner, lighter, bigger!” has already went way overboard. Wow,you have such big screen to body… Read more »

You obviously don’t have a subscription to Netflix on your phone. Everything is in edge to edge wide screen format. Look at most new pop videos on YouTube and they’re all in wide screen to fit the Note9, S9, S8 etc. 16:9 is dead. You’re not keeping up with the times my friend!! I’m not pro bezelless by the way. I think a small bezel does make way more sense but as far as wide screen aspect is concerned that’s already the present and definitely the future.

I do have a Netflix subscription…for my 4K TV. Which is where I watch films and series, not on a phone. That’s just silly.
And no, most of the content is NOT in 19:9. It’s normally 21:9 or 16:9.

Hands up everyone who has Netflix on their S8, S9 or Note9 who sees 90% of all content in perfect wide screen on their phone. Idiot.

Yes, of course nearly everything is in full screen mode with no black bars on Netflix for almost every series and every new movie. I cannot understand this mans problem. everyone is even voting down his comments! He is what we would call an albern in Germany….a simpleton!! LOL

All my Netflix and Amazon movies are in wide screen. It uses the full aspect of my S9 plus and looks great! It’s my first wide screen phone and much better than my old 16:9 LG I had before. Also the new music videos on Youtube are coming in wide screen. I think that the 16:9 is now old and will soon disappear as creators are making the videos in wide screen .

“16:9 is now old and will soon disappear as creators are making the videos in wide screen .”

Except they’re not. Films are filmed in 21:9 and YouTube videos in 16:9.
Try again.

My friend, why are you not accepting the truth? You don’t have a wide screen phone . I will post a link to a G+ site showing photos , taken with my S9 plus of a Note9 showing some popular series and a movie. They are all playing in full wide screen on the Note9. You will see the evidence , hopefully the moderators will allow my next post to you. . You see how many people are disagreeing with you. You need to see the evidence and be educated.

You shouldn’t bother. This guy is like the people who believe that the earth is flat. No matter how much evidence you show them, they still don’t believe it. But at least you are trying to educate him. I hope your post is allowed. I have found other photos too on web of Netflix playing in full screen, but he probably was afraid to look. Hopefully he will see your link and come back and admit he’s wrong as everyone who has the Netflix app on their S8 or later phone knows. I feel a little bit sorry for people… Read more »

You might be right . Some people are too stubborn. Hopefully he can see the link with the evidence that I have posted. As you say, he probably still wont believe it even if his own eyes see it.

Smart phones are all about the screen and the camera.

I am one for thinner and lighter but do draw a line on the size being around the same size as the s9 in length and height but the depth can definitely be slimmer.

As for full day charge, not that bothered as I tend to make sure my phone is charged before I leave the house or office so that I have the safe sanity that I have a working phone.

If you use the phone as the micro-computer it actually is, the battery will not last you a long day. I have wireless chargers everywhere so I’m constantly charging the phone, but my point remains: they’re focusing on the wrong things. Smartphones are about portability and usability. The moment you make the phone unusable with one hand and a nuisance to carry, it stops making sense to have it instead of a laptop or 2-in-1. To me, for example, carrying around a phone like the S9 – which can’t be used with one hand without hand gymnastics – became so… Read more »

Dude, I tottaly disagree with what you said. As years and years pass, Phones can’t be like they used to. We all need to deal with it and move on. It’s a new era. It’s not like it used to be before where phones had big bezels and people used to find it fine. Ik, I tottaly understand you, I’m also not a fan of almost bezelless phones, but we gotta move, it’s 2019. And that thing about Aspect ratios, many just started producing 19:9 (or whatever aspect ratios the S9, Note 9,and S10 will have). The problem is that… Read more »

“Big bezels” hold up a minute, the Note7 had very thin bezels, probably the thinnest bezels samsung has ever implemented on a smartphone compared to the screen size. The big bezels you are talking about count way less than the lateral bezels because of the way our hands keep a smartphone in portrait mode. Upper and lower bezels can be even useful to hold the phone in landscape mode; so i think that saying *only* that the Note7 had big bezels is technically wrong. All this full-screen no-bezels hype often gets overrated and doesn’t take into account ergonomy (aka science)

I was looking at the pictures of the Note7. The bezels on the top and the bottom are quite big. I definitely prefer the small bezels on my S9 plus and on the older S8. But I don’t think I would like to have no bezels or a notch or hole. I want a screen with no interruption, but you are right, we need some small bezel to hold on to without covering the screen. It’s not sensible to have no bezel whatsoever.

True, we should have at least some bezel..

Wow the phones are getting way to big for non note models…

But it’s impressive to see high screen to body ratio

My choice is still the regular S10 if it’s similar size as the s8

” So there’s eight Note devices Samsung won’t sell next year.”

Boo hoo!

Wow… That’s really showing the difference!

That’s an excellent comparison.. I felt sad having to return my Note7 and returning the replacement was even worse. The difference in screen size is impressive but a hole in the display is not for me. Our company has used every Note up to Note9 but we won’t be going for Note10 if it has a hole. There is just no excuse for it. We will definitely be waiting for the Note11 when hopefully they will have hidden the camera underneath the display. So there’s eight Note devices Samsung won’t sell next year.

Is it for aesthetic reasons or other that you don’t like it and does everyone you work with feel the same? I’m not liking the hole so much either, but it’s better than the notch. I won’t be upgrading my S9 plus until S11 anyway as I upgrade every two years.

Biransahin

That’s a good question Gunter. I’m not fond of the hole but the reason is a practical one for us. We use the whole surface of the screen to view and annotate engineering schematics and pipeline routes. We use both AutoCad and our own design calculations and drawing apps which works only in full screen mode. So the area around the hole may contain measurement data or may need to be able to be changed and with a hole it’s not possible. So we have agreed as a company (we are a partnership) not to go for it if it… Read more »

LOL! Yes, some people are what do they say in English, fanboys I think. They don’t like any critical statements! Thanks for the full explanation. I fully understand what you mean now. It is more a practical issue for your business.

Haha! I’m also a fanboy! I really think Samsung products are top class. Even our laptops and our wall monitor for presentations are Samsung! Which by the way, being able to change PowerPoint slides with the Spen is also very useful. But I should have explained my reason better in my first comment. I’m sure it will be a magnificent device as always, but just not for us. I think holes and notches will have a very short life before disappearing again. I think in 2020 there will be no hole on the Samsung screen.
