The past few months have seen countless leaks and speculations regarding Samsung’s upcoming Galaxy S10 line-up of flagship smartphones. And even though the company hasn’t provided even a faint hint regarding its upcoming devices yet, the rumor mill continues to be in full force. Now, another bit of information has surfaced online, providing some details about screen sizes of the three Galaxy S10 variants that Samsung is expected to launch next year.

According to a report by South Korean publication ET News, the ‘standard’ variant of Samsung Galaxy S10 will have a 5.8-inch flat display. The premium version will also have a 5.8-inch panel, but it’ll be curved (like the screens on the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S9). Lastly, the report talks about the third top-of-the-line variant, which will come with a 6.2-inch curved panel (similar to the screens on the Galaxy S8+ and Galaxy S9+).

While that may not seem like particularly exciting, what’s more interesting is the display technology that the chaebol is reportedly developing. As per the ET News report, Samsung intends to use a new generation of OLED panels for its upcoming flagship smartphones. Known only as ‘M9’, these panels are said to use new forms of organic materials.

It’s worth mentioning that Samsung’s current-generation flagships – Galaxy S9, Galaxy S9+, and Galaxy Note 9 – all use ‘M8’ OLED panels, and they’re already among the best smartphone displays currently available in the market.

It’s quite possible that the new ‘M9’ panels would be used in Samsung’s upcoming foldable smartphone, a preview of which was already demoed by the company earlier this month at its developer conference. All said, the upcoming Galaxy S10 series of smartphones is shaping up to be quite exciting and feature-packed.
