Galaxy S20 dummies show how the three S20 models will compare in size

With the Galaxy S20, it’s more or less confirmed that Samsung is no longer interested in offering a compact flagship phone. The smallest of the Galaxy S20 series is expected to have a screen that’s 6.2 to 6.3 inches in size and the largest one is expected to go all the way up to 6.9 inches. But things may not be as bad as those screen sizes may suggest. The smallest Galaxy S20 will be equal in size to the Galaxy S10, according to the folks over at XDA Developers who managed to 3D print Galaxy S20 dummies based on design data received from a case maker.

As we have repeated quite often, the smaller bezels around the display on the Galaxy S20, Galaxy S20+, and Galaxy S20 Ultra would have easily allowed Samsung to keep the overall dimensions quite compact for the screen sizes. As you can see in the picture below, the Galaxy S20 with its 6.2-6.3-inch screen is not substantially bigger than the Galaxy S10 with its 6.1-inch screen. Thanks to the taller aspect ratio, it’s also not as wide as the S10 and should therefore be easier to hold. The reduced display curve should help on that front as well.

However, the most popular of the Galaxy S20 series might turn out to be the Galaxy S20+, which will be the mid-sized model. The S20+ is a bit taller than the Galaxy S10+, but it’s rather negligible considering the S20+ has a 6.7-inch screen and the S10+ has a 6.4-inch display. As for the Galaxy S20 Ultra, it’s just a tad taller than the Galaxy Note 10+ as these dummy models show, but the rounder edges should make it less unwieldy than the Note 10+, although one-handed use will naturally be a chore.

Check out the video from XDA Developers below, and let us know what you think about Samsung moving to 6-inch+ screens as standard for its 2020 flagship.

Re- the Camera – I would like to see photos that are dense enough that they can be viewed on a monitor and still be clear and sharp. I don’t care much about taking photos in extreme low light . Larger batteries – great – but you can make a 5.8″ Pro Phone .8 to 1.2 mm thicker and Professionals will LOVE the 4000 MAH battery . We don’t care about a thin phone – we want it in a pocket in a thin case – with a 12 hour heavy use battery ( some days are like that ).… Read more »

I really like the ergonomics of the S9 I have now . I am an active person and the S9 fits in my pocket almost as easily as previous Galaxy Alpha did due to the shape. At 6.2″ I am not sure if the phone with a Otterbox Symmetry (small ) or similar case will comfortably fit in front pocket or any pocket. I get that Samsung wanted to cover the large phone market but with 3 ( ! ) sizes – we would think 5.8″ then the two larger sizes . Professionals , Police , Doctors, Nurses , Active… Read more »

All ridiculously oversized. And the Ultra is a tablet.

Easy easy skip. Even if they didn’t like basic features of a real flagship like expandable storage and a headphone jack.

The screen curve is just like Note 7.. at the front it looks like flat, just like Note 7.

Interesting to see the normal s20 being narrower than the s10 and I think it’s a good thing. If it’s similar width as the s8 then I will be a comfortable phone to hold.

Questions still on why the down grade on the camera and does the tof really make a difference.

Is there any reasons for me to upgrade from my s10 with 512gb storage for this?
