Samsung is likely to make big changes to the design of its 2019 flagship smartphone, the Samsung Galaxy S10, according to a new report quoting the CEO of the company’s mobile division. Speaking to Sam Mobile, DJ Koh said that fans could expect ‘very significant’ changes in the design of the Galaxy S10. This is notable, particularly considering that the new phone is the tenth edition of the Samsung Galaxy S series that debuted globally in 2010.

The Samsung Galaxy S10 is due for a design refresh, considering that this year’s Samsung Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ followed the same design language as the Galaxy S8 duo that was launched in 2017. Currently, the phones sport 18.5:9 screens, narrow chins and foreheads, and glass at the back, along with a metal frame. Samsung has tended to use the same design for two generations before changing things up, as was also the case with the Samsung Galaxy S6 and S7 ranges.

These changes could be along the lines of a new approach to the way the screen is, as well as the rear camera setup. While some have speculated that the Samsung Galaxy S10 could finally be the foldable phone we’ve all been expecting, it’s unlikely that Samsung will have its expected foldable screen technology on its flagship range, and will rather launch it as a separate product line. What we could see is a re-designed screen that pushes the edge-to-edge approach even further.

Additionally, we’re also likely to see a triple-camera setup, a re-designed layout at the back and new color options on the Samsung Galaxy S10. Furthermore, there could even be a merging of the S-lineup with the Galaxy Note series. These phones are still many months away at this point, and till then, everything is speculative. However, based on the company’s CEO’s words, we’re going to be seeing big changes next year.
