For most people, the Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9+ were a disappointment. Not that they are bad phones, but the fact that they don’t serve as a big upgrade over last year’s S8 and S8+, makes them a little unexciting. For that purpose, a lot of people are looking forward to the phone’s successor, the Galaxy S10. Samsung will be celebrating it’s 10-year anniversary in the flagship S series, which leads us to believe that the S10 will be a revolutionary smartphone.

Rumors around the device have already started surfacing. Only yesterday, we reported about a rumor stating that the S10 will be Samsung’s first smartphone to feature an in-display fingerprint senor. Now, a leak by Ice Universe claims that next year’s Galaxy S10 screen will feature the highest resolution ever seen on a Samsung smartphone. Ice Universe mentioned in a tweet saying, “Rumored that a shade fortitude of a Galaxy S10 will surpass 600PPI,”.

There was no information mentioned, so there could be multiple outcomes to the tweet. To give you an idea, the screen on S9+ carries a WQHD+ (2,960 x 1,440) resolution and a pixel density of 570 ppi. According to the tweet, the S10 could feature the same resolution of the S9+, but with a smaller screen. This could help bump the pixel density to just about 600 ppi. Alternately, the Galaxy S10 could feature a bigger screen with 4K resolution. However, that would push the pixel density way over 600 ppi.

Nothing can be confirmed yet, but we can say that Ice Universe’s track record with rumors in the past, has been good. Going by that, we think it’s okay to be optimistic about the S10 carrying the best Samsung screen ever.
