Upcoming Samsung Galaxy S11 May Have A Taller display


Samsung’s next flagship; the Samsung Galaxy S11 is still months away from making its official debut. But a new report sheds light on a key specification of the upcoming Galaxy S11. The Galaxy S11 will apparently have a display that is taller than any other display we’ve seen on a Samsung flagship.

A leaked HTML 5 browser test reveals that a device with the codename of SM-G416U has a resolution of 384 x 854 px which translates into a 20:9 aspect ratio. The SM-G416U is a placeholder name that Samsung uses when testing its upcoming Galaxy S models. Until now, no Samsung flagship has had a display with this aspect ratio. Both the Samsung Galaxy S10 and the Samsung Galaxy Note10 have displays with an aspect ratio of 19:9.

The only Samsung phones with a 20:9 display are the Samsung Galaxy A70 and the Samsung Galaxy A80, the latter of which has a pop-up rotating camera. While we don’t know anything about the upcoming S11’s design, this taller screen design may not necessarily attribute to the inclusion of a pop-up camera.

After moving from 16:9 displays to 18.5:9 and even 19:9 displays, it seems like OEMs are ready to make even taller displays. Taller displays give more space for multitasking and enable the inclusion of bigger displays without making the phone any wider. Even the recently unveiled OnePlus 7T has a display with a 20:9 aspect ratio.

The S11 will likely be launched in February 2020. The phone recently made news when a report stated that Samsung has started testing out a 5x Optical Zoom periscope model. Since Samsung is already making 90Hz QHD+ displays for OnePlus, we might get to see a 90Hz display on the upcoming S11 series too!
