Samsung just unveiled its latest flagship smartphone, the Galaxy S10 in its UNPACKED Event.
The company showcased 3 variants of Galaxy S10, namely:
- Galaxy S10E
- Galaxy S10
- Galaxy S10+
PowerShare: A new feature that allows the user to charge other S10 phones and Samsung accessories like the smartwatch and its new wireless earbuds through the phone itself.
WiFi 6 and Faster Wireless charging: The S10 series is compatible with the new and faster WiFi 6 and faster Wireless Charging 2.0.
Ultrasonic Fingerprint Sensor: The S10+ and S10 feature an ultrasonic on-screen fingerprint sensor, which the company claims to be faster and more secure than its competitors. The sensor is backed with Machine Learning algorithms to detect fake fingerprints and provide with ‘Vault-like Security’. The S10E, on the other hand, features a conventional fingerprint sensor at an unconventional spot, the side of the phone.
Samsung promises significant performance upgrades on the CPU and GPU side of the phone with up to 29% performance improvement for CPU and 37% for GPU over its predecessor.
The top variant sports a crazy 12GB RAM with 1TB of base storage.
There is also an option to expand this with a microSD card adding to a total of 1.5TB, but I doubt anyone would be needing to expand that mammoth internal storage.
The S10+ features a 4100 mAh battery while the lower end variants, S10, and S10E are powered by a 3400 mAh and 3100 mAh battery respectively.
The S10 series features Dynamic AMOLED display with insane 1200 nits of brightness, and 100% color volume. It’s still one of the best displays you can find on a smartphone. Impressive Dynamic Tone Mapping was also showcased in the presentation for improved color accuracy. The phones support HDR10+, a first on any mobile device.
Galaxy S10E, S10, and S10+ have a screen size of 5.8, 6.1 and 6.4 inches respectively.
The S10+ and S10 sport a triple rear camera setup consisting of a 12 MP Dual Pixel sensor, a 12 MP Telephoto sensor, and a 16MP UltraWide sensor.
The demo showcased improved camera software with better AI capabilities with 30 different scene selections. The camera is also capable of shooting at HDR10+
New 5G Phone?
There was a mention of a Galaxy S10 5G variant with 4500 mAh battery and a massive 6.7 inch display. We expect this one to be much expensive than other variants.
Galaxy S10E is the least expensive S10 device and will retail for a price of $749, while the standard Galaxy S10 is priced at $899 and the bigger Galaxy S10+ will cost $999.
The S10E, S10 and S10+ will arrive in the market on 8th of March, 2019.
