Screen protectors hint at minimal display curve for the Galaxy S10

Amid reports that at least one Galaxy S10 model may have a flat display, these screen protectors for the Galaxy S10 and Galaxy S10+ suggest that Samsung may have gone with a minimal display curve this time around.

These screen protectors are from Olixar, the same accessory manufacturer that has previously released renders of its Galaxy S10 cases. Mobile Fun has posted a video online comparing these screen protectors with the ones released by Olixar for the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+.

Galaxy S10 display curve might not be as pronounced

The dimensions are in line with reports about the next flagship’s display sizes. The Galaxy S10 and Galaxy S10+ are expected to feature 6.1-inch and 6.4-inch displays. These protectors have been cut to the same size.

The gains in screen real estate are quite evident when compared with the protectors for the Galaxy S9. It seems like Samsung has been able to achieve significantly slim bezels which is something that many fans will appreciate. This will be made possible by the Infinity-O display. It eliminates the need for a front camera notch by placing it inside a cutout in the display itself.

Samsung completely shifted its flagship lineup to curved displays with the Galaxy S8. Both the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S9 have displays with rather pronounced curves on both edges. It may switch things up a bit with the Galaxy S10 if recent reports are any indication. It may offer a flat display with the entry-level model of the Galaxy S10. These screen protectors show that while the Galaxy S10 and Galaxy S10+ displays will be curved, they will be noticeably less so compared to previous models.

Could this lead to a return to fully flat displays on future Samsung flagships with a high screen-to-body ratio? It’s also possible that these protectors don’t tell the entire story, they’re not a Samsung-made part after all. What do you think, though? Do let us know in the comments below.
