The Samsung Galaxy S10e was a fan favorite of sorts, as it was one of the select few premium compact devices in the market. New information has now surfaced pointing towards a complete non-existence of what would have been the S10e's successor, the S11e.

Last week, popular leakster Ice Universe promised us that we were entering peak leak season for the Samsung Galaxy S11 phones. A new report gives us some much-needed information on the phones, but it’s unlikely to thrill expectant fans of the series.

According to Evan Blass, the Samsung Galaxy S11 phones will come in three sizes, the smallest of which will either be a 6.2-inch or 6.4-inch display. For some perspective, the smallest Galaxy S10 phone, the S10e, comes in at 5.7”, making it the best compact flagship option on the market at the moment. The fact that the smallest S11 phone will be 6.2” at least means it will be even bigger than the S10.

Going by Blass’s tweet, the next device in the line will clock in at 6.7”, with the biggest being a massive 6.9”. These are quite...significant increases in sizes. The 6.7-inch model would be even bigger than the Galaxy S10+.

The source claims that the smaller two devices will come in 4G and 5G variants, while the biggest model will be 5G-only. While public opinion leans towards the release of a Galaxy S11e, it’s starting to look like we won’t be getting such a device, especially since the source also confirms that none of the devices will have a flat display.

It’s more likely that we’re looking at a Galaxy S11, S11+, and S11 5G. The S10e was something of a niche fan favorite, and we’d hate to see it go. We hope we’re wrong.
