Samsung Electronics has recently changed its Galaxy S10 series product specs and decided to increase the screen size of the Galaxy S10+, from 6.3 inches to 6.44, surpassing the upcoming Note 9, local news outlet The Bell reported.
The latest move came out as a counter to Apple's big screen iPhone variant with a display size of 6.46-inch later this year. This model is also the largest iPhone ever.
In particular, Apple has announced that it has set the highest price for the 6.46-inch model parts-to-cast (order quantity) to about 45 million units. It means that the 6.46-inch model is the standard product.
The size of the Galaxy S10+ panel is about the same as the iPhone's 6.46-inch model, just 0.02 inches apart. Samsung Electronics is willing to take the initiative in the big screen market.
“The modified specs are not final and Samsung is still considering different options,” said an industry source, adding that “everything will be all set and ready by August.”
The Galaxy S-Series '+' models known for their extras specs and larger screen sizes, Galaxy Note 9, which will be released in early August, is also 6.38 inches smaller than Galaxy S10+.
The Galaxy Note 9 should be unveiled during the second week of August at “Unpacked” event taking place in New York City, according to multiple reports, with August 9 being one likely launch date for the Note 9.
While the S10 is supposed to be unveiled at CES 2019, which is scheduled to take place in Las Vegas in early January – and release it by the end of February, a month following its official announcement.
