The first thing that got my attention when I first saw the Samsung Galaxy S10 5G was its size. The device is a supersized smartphone and can hardly fit into a woman’s jean or skirt pocket. The smartphone has a whopping 6.7 inches almost all-screen display.

The smartphone is built with both glass and aluminum, the front and the back of the device is covered with a Gorilla Glass 6, while the frame is made of aluminum. The smartphone has a total weight of 198g. From the look of things, Samsung actually intended to make this smartphone as a fully fledged flagship and not like the party starter kind of smartphones.

The front of the super-sized Samsung Galaxy S10 5G is covered by a huge 6.7 inches Dynamic AMOLED capacitive touchscreen, which leaves you with an ~89.4% screen-to-body ratio. The resolution of the screen is 1440 x 3040 pixels and has a 19:9 ratio, meanwhile the screen produces clear images and has a ~502 PPI density.

Still, on the front edge-to-edge screen of the smartphone, you will find the less obvious oval-shaped hole-punch that holds the two selfie cameras. Apart from the large size of the smartphone, and a few other changes, most of the key specifications are the same.

On the back side of the Samsung Galaxy S10 5G, there is a horizontally place Quad cameras (Four cameras), which is also followed by a powerful LED flash. Apart from the things I just mentioned, the back of the smartphone is empty.
