Alleged Galaxy S10 benchmark hints at new screen aspect ratio and design

Alleged Galaxy S10 benchmark hints at new screen aspect ratio and design
A few days ago, Samsung Mobile's chief DJ Koh took to the airwaves during a trip to China and revealed that "very significant" design changes will be in store come Galaxy S10 release time. On a separate note, a rich palette of new, perhaps even gradient colors, are expected for Samsung's next flagship exterior.

Thanks to a leaked browser benchmark for the new Samsung Internet 9.0 from a device codenamed SM-405F (Samsung often uses such codes in pre-release benchmarks to hide upcoming Galaxy S-series phones), we see a different screen aspect ratio. 

Instead of 18.5:9, as on the current Galaxy S8, S9 and Note 9 handsets, the new or updated Infinity Display design will come with 19:9 aspect ratio, possibly making the screen taller within the same footprint. Does that mean we will see even thinner bezels and better screen-to-body ratio on the new Galaxy S10 trio? We certainly hope so.

If Samsung do not be improve the battery ( at least 5000mAh), enough memory for a flagship phone, at least 8/128GB basic configuration. Eliminate bloatware and fix the insanely overpriced value.The company this year will cry harder than the era of Samsung Galaxy S9. Samsung Be careful, you have new kid on the block Xiaomi Pocophone F1

Pocophone is garbage and not a flagship phone.. You want a cheap no frills phone go poco. You want a flagship phone pay to play or go poco.

Why do I have a nasty suspicious thought that they increased the displays length vertically because they might be adding the notch, and without the notch I honestly have no clue what could they do to to radically change the design. Yes, they did in fact diss the notch during the Note 9 ads, but look at Google, they dragged Apple for removing the headphone jack and, one year passed, and bam. They did done the same goof. What says Samsung wouldn't do the same? It's just an ad, after all, they have to try sell the product as much as possible and expose the subjective/objective flaws in competitor devices. Just because they said something in the ad one day doesn't really mean that's their mentality in the company itself, iykwim.

If it had a notch,the aspect ratio would be 19.5:9 just like the iPhone x and xs series so no worries there, it's only 19:9.

Not necessarily, OnePlus 6 has an aspect ratio of 19:9 and guess what it has. There are a number of phones with aspect ratio going around 18.7:9 and still featuring such yikes grade feature.

I doubt that Samsung would go the notch route, and here's why: Marketing Samsung has very quickly become one of the last manufacturers NOT to use a notch in their design. As such, the Galaxy phones they produce are recognizable. This is a Huge advantage in marketing, since everyone else can be accused now of "copying Apple". Samsung can present themselves as a brave, confident company who thinks differently than everyone else, which appeals to much of their consumer base. If Samsung adopts the Notch, I would be very surprised, and I would be eager to find out how they justify it.

Have you ever seen samsung being against emojis? I've seen very clear that they don't like notches.
