In case you're wondering how large the Samsung Galaxy S10+ will be, well, two cases for the device have surfaced, and Ice Universe actually decided to try putting them on the Galaxy S9+, Galaxy Note9, and the OPPO Find X. The source decided to do all that in a short three-minute video, and that should give you plenty of info when it comes to the size of the Galaxy S10+, presuming that the leaked cases are real, of course. As you can see in the video that is embedded down below, one black and one see-through case leaked, and it seems like both of these are your regular, third-party silicone cases, the ones you can purchase via eBay or Amazon. That being said, both cases fit well on the Galaxy S9+ in terms of size, which suggests that the Galaxy S10+ will be similar in size to the Galaxy S9+, almost identical, in fact, while its display will be larger, more on that later. The Galaxy Note9 is considerably taller than the Galaxy S9+, and it will be taller than the Galaxy S10+ as well, as the Galaxy S10+ cases don't fit the device at all. The OPPO Find X, on the other hand, managed to squeeze itself in the Galaxy S10+ case as well. Now, if you take a look at the video down below, you will notice that the ports on the Galaxy S10+ are in similar position as the ones on the Galaxy S9+, including a Type-C charging port, 3.5mm headphone jack, and a bottom-firing loudspeaker. The phone's buttons are in similar positions as well, power / lock, volume up, volume down, and Bixby buttons.

Galaxy S9+ vs Galaxy S10+ Design & Display Size

The Galaxy S9+ ships with a 6.2-inch display, while the Galaxy S10+ will include a 6.4-inch display, if rumors and leaks are accurate. Earlier today, the Galaxy S10+'s screen protector surfaced in a video, and it got measured by the source, which confirmed that we're looking at a 6.4-inch display. The Galaxy S10+ will ship with a considerably thinner set of bezels compared to the Galaxy S9+, though, which explains why the two phones will have an almost identical footprint. The Galaxy S10+ will be made out of metal and glass, just like its predecessor, but it will include one extra camera on the back, as it is expected to ship with three rear-facing cameras, compared to two on the Galaxy S9+. The phone will also include two cameras on the front, while the Galaxy S9+ shipped with "only" one selfie camera. The Galaxy S10+ will ship with Samsung's brand new Infinity-O display, and it will sport display camera holes, two of them, which could be an issue for some people, as those camera holes will be rather noticeable on the display, and you will not be able to hide them, as you can do with notches on some phones. The Galaxy S10+ will also sport a less pronounced display curve on the sides compared to the Galaxy S9+.

Rumored Galaxy S10 Variants

Rumors are claiming that Samsung plans to introduce four variants of the Galaxy S10, the Galaxy S10, S10+, S10 Lite, and the "premium" Galaxy S10 unit. The first three variants will become official at the end of February, it seems, while the "premium" unit will arrive later on, in March or April, quite probably. The Galaxy S10 Lite is rumored to arrive with 4GB of RAM, while the Galaxy S10 and S10+ will start at 6GB of RAM. The "premium" Galaxy S10 unit will not only include 12GB of RAM according to rumors, but it will also ship with a ceramic back, compared to a glass back on every other Galaxy S10 unit. On top of that, that variant of the phone is expected to support 5G, and include a 6.7-inch display, so it will basically be the only Galaxy S10 variant that will support 5G and it will also be the largest Galaxy S10 unit, presuming that the provided info is accurate. On top of everything, the "premium" Galaxy S10 is also rumored to include four cameras on the back, while it will probably ship with two front-facing cameras, just like the Galaxy S10+. This is all rumored info, and the company still did not confirm anything, but plenty of rumors repeated the same thing, while we've seen some leaks as well, so it's possible that the provided info is accurate, at least for the most part.
