When the 4.3-inch HTC HD2 launched back in 2009, many said that the smartphone display could not get any bigger. But just a couple of years later, the Samsung Galaxy Note broke the 5-inch barrier with its 5.3-inch screen. Now, we have the Galaxy Note 9 carrying a 6.4-inch display (see image at the top of this article) and there is even a 6.5-inch Apple iPhone XS Max. Screen sizes are primed to get even larger next year if reports out of Korea are right.
According to one website that cites unnamed Korean sources, the Samsung Galaxy Note 10 is expected to be equipped with a 6.66-inch 4K resolution display. The handset reportedly has been given the code name of "DaVinci," and the U.S. model will be powered by the new Qualcomm Snapdragon 8150 Mobile Platform. The phone is expected to bring support for 5G, and feature a triple-camera setup on back. The Galaxy Note 10 will allegedly be available in the middle of next year as opposed to the series' traditional Q3 release.
UPDATE: Apparently the source has removed any reference to the Galaxy Note 10 having a 4K screen, so perhaps we should dial down expectations for the moment.
While a 6.66-inch display sounds massive, it won't be the largest screen from the manufacturer to fit in one's pocket next year. Samsung's Galaxy F foldable device will have a 7.3-inch screen when fully opened.
