Galaxy S10 vs Galaxy S9: What to Expect & What’s New

Published

on

The Samsung Galaxy S10 release date is almost here and that means potential buyers have some tough choices to make. Buy an impressive phone like the Galaxy S9 right now, or wait for the Galaxy S10 in a few weeks. If you’re on the fence, here’s how the two compare.

In this Galaxy S10 vs Galaxy S9 comparison, we’ll go over everything you need to know. From what’s new, what’s changing, exciting features and what buyers can expect.

We know the all-new Galaxy S10 will have a bigger edge-to-edge display, no bezels, a camera cutout in the screen, blazingly fast performance and much longer battery life. Here’s why you should or shouldn’t wait for it.

Samsung will actually release at least three different Galaxy S10 smartphones in 2019. Those being the Galaxy S10 Lite, the regular S10, a slightly bigger Galaxy S10+, and possibly a massive 6.7-inch 5G-powered Galaxy S10 X. That’s a lot to take in, so we’ll just focus on the main model here today — the regular S10.

In 2018 Samsung released the Galaxy S9 and the Galaxy S9+. Both phones had big curved screens with small bezels, a sleek design, powerful cameras, and while they were great, not much changed compared to the Galaxy S8. This year though, the Galaxy 10 has some major changes throughout. From the screen sizes, fingerprint scanners, battery life, reverse wireless charging, triple cameras and more.

If you’re still rocking an old Galaxy S7, Note 5 or even the Galaxy S8 and are trying to decide if the next Galaxy is worth an upgrade, you’ve come to the right place.

And while we wouldn’t recommend anyone buys the Galaxy S9 right now, not until we know exactly what’s coming from the new phones in 2019, you’ll still find tons of helpful information, comparisons, pricing info and details in the slideshow below.

Galaxy S10 vs Galaxy S9: Display

First things first, we have to talk about the display. Here's the quick info you need. 

  • Galaxy S9 has a 5.8-inch Quad-HD Curved AMOLED Display
  • Galaxy S10 has a bigger 6.1-inch Quad-HD Curved AMOLED Display

The S10 has a punch-hole cutout in the screen to house the front-facing camera (but no notch, like an iPhone)

This year the regular Galaxy S10 will be roughly the exact same size as the Galaxy S8 and S9, only with a bigger screen. That's because they've removed the black bar (bezels) on the top and bottom, or made them thinner, and stretched the screen further to the sides. Delivering a bigger screen in the same space. What this essentially means though, is that the bigger size shouldn't be a concern for potential buyers, as it'll be just as hard to hold as if you got the S9 or the S8. 

However, there is a cheaper Galaxy S10 Lite with a 5.8-inch FLAT screen coming too, which some buyers may be interested in. Just keep that in mind. 

If you're coming from a really old Samsung you might be wondering about the fingerprint scanner. Well, it's not on the back (like the Galaxy S9) and instead -- the Galaxy S10 has an ultrasonic fingerprint scanner inside the screen, under the display. This means you simply press your finger on the screen and it'll instantly turn on, wake up, and securely unlock. 

The bigger screen, in-display fingerprint scanner, and punch-hole cutout for the camera are the biggest changes to the slightly larger 6.1-inch screen in the Galaxy S10.
