The Samsung Galaxy S10+ sports a 6.4-inch Infinity-O curved Dynamic AMOLED display with a resolution of Quad HD+ (3040 x 1440 pixels) and aspect ratio of 19:9. The screen is almost bezel-less and has a small cutout for its dual selfie cameras for full view display.

The design has a glass back protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 5, the sides are metallic and give a shiny silver look. It’s IP68 rated meaning the phone is water and dust resistant just like the previous devices we saw. The overall design is similar to the predecessor, however, you get the new look of the screen with less bezels and a cutout for cameras.

Samsung also moved to the new fingerprint scanner technology that we saw on the HUAWEI Mate 20 Pro and other phones utilizing it. Located on the screen is an Ultrasonic fingerprint scanner that unlocks the phone when you put your thumb on the display.
