The most awaited Samsung Galaxy S10, yesterday at Samsung’s Unpacked 2019 Press Conference, marked the 10th revision to Samsung’s S-series of flagship handsets. For 2019, it has been combined with an all-around design, performance, and more upgrades, alongside the new siblings named Galaxy S10e and Samsung Galaxy S10 Plus.
This is the first one with an ultrasonic fingerprint scanner (on-screen) and now three camera lenses are on the rear. The S10 Plus even gets an additional front camera.
The new AMOLED Dynamic Infinity-O display is simply splendid, and HDR10+ is equipped with dynamic clay mapping and a cutout punch-hole for selfie camera, which allows for a pure screen mass. The trio has 5.8, 6.1 and 6.4 in displays, which is also greater.
“The Galaxy S10 builds upon an incredible legacy and delivers innovative innovations in display, camera, and performance. With four premium devices built into a consumer-orientated environment, Samsung leverages a decade’s industry leaders to lead the way in a new smartphone technology era” said by Samsung President DJ Koh. Let’s keep going to find out more in Samsung Galaxy S10 Review below!
There is good news along with a piece of bad news. The bad news is that you are going to have to wait quite a few days more to get your hands on Galaxy S10. Whereas the good news is that it’s available to pre-order with immediate effects.
The official Samsung Galaxy S10 Release Date all over the world is all set to be March 8th, 2019. That’s mere weeks away, folks.
The Samsung Galaxy S10 Price is $899 which after conversion comes to around £799, AU$1349 and AED 3199. That means you will be needing to spend additional $180 as compared to last year’s S9 to get your hands on one.
By ordering the Galaxy S10 before March 8, some countries will net you bonuses. In the United States, for example, when you pre-order Galaxy S10, or Galaxy S10 Plus, Samsung offers Galaxy Buds free of cost that set users back around $ 149/AUD249.
As for Samsung Galaxy S10 Plus Price, it costs $1173, $1450, $1826 for its 128GB, 512GB and 1TB variants. The Samsung Galaxy S10e, on the other hand, is available for only $912 for its 128GB variant.
Samsung Galaxy S10
The Samsung Galaxy S10 Phone improves considerably over the S9 and we think the upgrade is worth it. It’s recognizable immediately as a flagship of the S-Series, but Samsung’s already a super-looking phone manages to push the boundaries further.
It is a little larger than its predecessor, but both thinner and lighter, with a bigger 6.1 in the screen. Samsung has reworked the device front with a new AMOLED Infinity-O panel. It offers maximum surface space for a usable area of the screen (now up to a screen-to-body ratio of 93.1 %). And an integrated ultrasound fingerprint sensor with super-accuracy. On the back, the camera module was moved from a horizontal to a vertical position with 2 extra cameras.
Galaxy S10 Camera
The new triple-lens camera module contains the existing wide-angle lens 12MP with variable f/1.5-2.4 apertures with 16MP, f/2.2 ultra-wide and 12 MP, f/2.4 telephoto lenses. Samsung has also updated the camera app and look forward to a whirl.
Please note that the 3.5 mm headphones jack is still in place, making Samsung one of the few smartphones producers that didn’t use USB-C audio to dive. The IP68 waterproofing is also retained. Only the biometric Iris Scanning Technology is the only victims found on the hit-list, and only 2D face scanning is supported by Samsung Galaxy S10 Phone.
You’ll get the 8nm Exynos 9820 (the UK and Europe) or 7nm Snapdragon 855 (the elsewhere) chips according to where you buy the Galaxy S10. They are both devilishly quick, with latter promising an increase of 45% processing and 20% graphics over last year’s 845.
Also, battery life should be improved by upgrading the S9’s 3,000mAh cell to 3,400mAh, which supports quick cable and wireless charging via the USB-C.
All three models of Galaxy S10 are wirelessly powered, so they are able to charge other compatible phones wirelessly. It’s most probably a gimmick – but we will be reserving judgment for new, especially since it can be used to power up Galaxy buds.
Storage and memory options both are bumped up, with standard 8GB RAM and 128GB, and optional 512 GB. You can add an additional 512GB of MicroSD support. Samsung’s new One UI, a personalized interface used for Android 9 Pie, is also new to the Galaxy S10. It is simplified enormously compared to previous interfaces and uses a cinch one-handed.
Samsung Galaxy S10 Plus
This Plus model is the largest in the lineup, ignoring the 5G Galaxy S10. The Quad-HD+ display comes with 6.4 in, which means that its pixel density is slightly lower than the standard 438ppi model compared to its 550ppi. Of course, it remains unbelievably clear.
The panel is the same as the standard S10. But you will notice that its cutout for the selfie camera is larger. The S10 Plus supplements the existing 10MP, f/1.9. And 8 MP RGB capable of depth sensing by an additional camera on the front.
The same setup at the rear as on the standard S10 is achieved, with the three-lens camera on the side. And the cardiac sensor. And it has the same fingerprint ultrasonic sensor in the display as its brother. The Galaxy S10 Plus is, of course, larger and heavier than his brothers. But with a larger screen 7.8mm is no chunkier. The Ceramic version is 198 g when you choose to weigh it, but the standard color options are 175 g lighter.
Of course, a larger body means good battery power. And the S10 Plus has a 4100mAh cell which is 1000mAh higher than the S10e and 700mAh higher than the S10. It is also easy to charge wired and wirelessly.
The standard S10 maxes 8GB RAM. But the Plus model is also available for the Ceramic model with a stunning 12GB of memory. The storage also takes all things into account, adding a massive 1TB, 128GB and 512GB options for this special edition. And up to 512GB with MicroSD can boost this.
Samsung Galaxy S10e
You’ll notice that Galaxy S10 has a price rise from the $963 retail price of Galaxy S9. It makes sense, therefore, for those with a tighter budget, that Samsung also has the cheaper S10e. But you must compromise with this S10e in return for the lower price.
The trio is smallest with 5.8-inches screen. The resolution is set to Full HD+, and all the Galaxy S10 models are standard. But the rest are as high as Quad HD+. The other is curved and have a somewhat more chunky bezel on the screen.
It is thus also the lightest, at 150g. But Samsung had to be even slightly chunkier at a slight 7.9mm in order to cram in a 3100mAh battery (300mAh down on S10 and 1,000mAh down on Plus). This battery is loaded over USB-C and supports fast wired and wireless charging. It’s common with the rest of the range. The S10e uses a capacitive model, in the power button instead of an ultrasonic on-screen fingerprint scanner.
The S10e uses a capacitive model that is embedded on the power button, rather than the ultrasonic fingerprint sensor integrated into the display of its brothers. The S10 and S10 Plus rear telephoto lens are also lost with a 12MP + 16MP dual lens model. The selfie cameras with the 10MP, f/1.9 sensor are the same as the standard S10.
