We have less than a month until Samsung launches the anticipated Samsung Galaxy Note 10 series, with possible more devices that fit into the Samsung ecosystem like the Samsung Galaxy Watch Active 2. With that set, Samsung is planning what's next for their next high-end Galaxy smartphone that's likely to launch in early 2020; the Samsung Galaxy S11.
Of course, there's little revealed so far about the specs of the S11, but based on a patent it's believed that the smartphone will get a completely new design next year. Specifically, it's getting a pull-out model that will give the S11 a significantly larger screen that can fit your pocket.
According to LetsGoDigital, who also revealed these designs and 3D renders, the design patent was filed by Samsung Electronics at the end of 2018 with the KIPO (Korean Intellectual Property Office). The patent was approved at the end of May, after which the patent was publicly published on 24 June 2019. One of the main features of this model is the possibility to extend the width of the phone, after which the screen surface is estimated to be increased by around 50%. The images do show that the screen on the right is enlarged and the frame border around the screen also shifts partially, so that the flexible display remains well protected against external influences.
Beyond that, there's not a lot of description revealed other than what the images show, especially on how the screen will be pulled out. For now, with everything that's happened with the Samsung Galaxy Fold, lessons are learnt and that if Samsung is aiming to do something different for their Samsung Galaxy series, it would really go well.
For now, all we have are these renders to keep us wondering.
