With a 6.1-inch AMOLED display, featuring one of the world’s first front-facing cameras hole-punch, the Samsung Galaxy S10 is gorgeous to look at but also immersive and distraction-free. When you put your phone down, keep track of things with Samsung’s Always-on Display.

In terms of size, the Samsung Galaxy S20 sees a small increase, growing to a 6.2-inch AMOLED display. The hole-punch moves, but remains to retain that immersive, distraction-free experience. These small changes that Samsung made for the S20 mean you now enjoy a 89.5% screen-to-body ratio over the S10’s 88.3% ratio and increased screen density to 563 ppi.
