Samsung is expected to launch three Galaxy S10 models this month. 

ETNews reported in June 2018 that there would be three models with the code names: Beyond 0, Beyond 1 and Beyond 2. The Beyond 0 model is said to have a flat display while Beyond 1 and 2 are likely to have curved displays. The Beyond 2 model is positioned as the most premium of the three. 

Bloomberg corroborated the report with a similar claim in October 2018, although it mentioned that a 5G model is in the pipeline. The Wall Street Journal said in a report in November that there could be a soup-ed up "Beyond X" model that will support 5G networks. There is also speculation on a special edition model that has a ceramic back in black and white colors.

One of Samsung's new Infinity U, V and O displays with punch-hole selfie camera cutouts are expected to be featured on the Galaxy S10 lineup and the tiny bezels are likely to lead to a slight increase in display sizes. 

The Bell reported in April 2018 that the Galaxy S10 and S10+ will sport display sizes of 5.8 inches and 6.3 inches respectively. ETNews gave a different take; Beyond 0 and 1 will come with a 5.8-inch display while Beyond 2 will have a 6.2-inch display. The Beyond X model is rumored to have a 6.7-inch display. 

Reliable tipsters @OnLeaks and @91Mobiles claimed in December 2018 that the Galaxy S10+ will sport a 6.44-inch display. Leaked screen protectors for the Galaxy S10 and S10+ also suggest display sizes of 6.1-inches and 6.4-inches. 

As a recap, the Galaxy S9, S9+ and Note9 have display sizes of 5.8 inches, 6.2 inches and 6.4 inches respectively.
