As we near the launch of the Samsung Galaxy S10 range it is worth reflecting once again on the engineering achievements of the team, who year after year manage to produce thinner, sleeker device while still managing to squeeze in a larger battery (Note 7 notwithstanding) and maintaining what is rapidly becoming a unique feature, the headphone jack.
As noted by Ice Universe:
It seems that the Galaxy S10+ is thinner than the S9+, 7.8mm thick and accommodates a larger battery of 4100mAh. For comparison, the S9+ has a thickness of 8.5mm and only has a 3500mAh battery. pic.twitter.com/tkS6z1YUvN

The Samsung Galaxy S10+ is more than half a mm thinner than the Samsung Galaxy S9+, but offers a battery that is 17% larger. A different comparison may show the issue more starkly.
The iPhone XS Max is 7.7 mm thick and only has a 3,174 mAh battery, and of course lacks the bulky but useful 3.5 mm headphone jack.
The Samsung Galaxy S10 range is launching on the 20th February at their Unpacked Event. Keep an eye on the site for much more on the exciting range.
