'Da Vinci': Samsung Galaxy Note 10 to have biggest ever screen

If launched presumably in August next year, the 6.66-inch Note 10 will be the largest in the Galaxy lineup. Clearly, phablets have won and size is no longer Samsung's exclusive domain.

On Friday, PhoneBuff shared a video comparing the battery life of the iPhone XS Max to Samsung's Galaxy Note 9, with both phones having been put through actions to drain the battery, from placing phone calls and sending texts to browsing the internet.

According to Korean website The Bell, next year's Galaxy Note 10 will be Samsung's biggest smartphone yet with a 6.66in OLED display, 0.26in larger than the screen found on the Galaxy Note 9 and, according to the report, biggest than next year's iPhone XS Max sequel. That also makes it the largest Samsung smartphone so far. At the same time, the iPhone Xs Max was running at its default 2688 x 1242.

The phablet category in Samsung was started when the very first Galaxy Note was introduced but unfortunately, the large screen dominance of the Galaxy Note 9 could not be displayed as Apple used a much larger panel when launching the iPhone XS Max, at least on paper.

A phablet was once mocked for its oversized screen. Neither Samsung nor Apple will probably go overboard in that regard.

A new test levels things out, as now the iPhone Xs Max, Galaxy Note9, Pixel 3 XL, and Xperia XZ3 are all running at their max resolutions. Samsung can't really extend its screen size too much to the point that people will feel like they're carrying brings instead of phones.
