The difference is noticeable, as you can see in the top photo. The S10+ also seems much flatter, with less pronounced curves on the sides of its Infinity-O display. It’s much thinner than the Oppo Find X.

As notable rumormonger Ice Universe points out, even while being noticeably thinner, the new phone packs a much bigger battery: 4100mAh in the new S10+ vs 3500mAh for the old S9+.

That’s quite impressive, considering that this phone has three camera sensors on the back and much more impressive specs, with up to 12GB of RAM and 1 terabyte of internal storage (based on reports).
