At Samsung’s Galaxy S10 Unpacked event in San Francisco, the South Korean gadgets maker announced a plethora of, you guessed it, Android-powered smartphones and accessories.
The brand new flagship smartphones come with what Samsung Director of Product Marketing, Suzanne De Silva says it is the “most color accurate display on a mobile device”, and world’s first HDR10+ display. Samsung’s Infinity-O display with Dynamic AMOLED technology is gorgeous and it covers as expected most of the front of these new S10 phones. The company says all sensors are underneath the display as is the Ultra Sonic fingerprint sensor.
Inside Galaxy S10 and S10+ are either an 7nm Exynos 9820 chipset or an 8nm Snapdragon 855 chip, up to 12GB of RAM and up to 1 whopping Terabyte (note that you get a micro SD card slot in which you can insert another 512GB Samsung card).
The triple camera system with Dual OIS (optical image stabilisation) on these phones is another remarkable feature. Composed of three sensors the camera packs a 12MP telephoto lens + 12MP wide angle lens + 16MP Ultra-wide angle lens. At the front there is a single 10MP selfie camera with f/1.9 aperture on the Galaxy S10, and a dual selfie camera on the Galaxy S10 Plus composed of a 10MP sensor like on the standard model + an 8MP RGB sensor for depth.
The battery in these new Galaxy phones promises 1-day of usage no matter what, fast charging, wireless charging and reversed wireless charging for what it’s worth. There is a 3,400 mAh capacity battery in S10; a 4,100 mAh capacity battery in the S10 Plus model.
In terms of connectivity you get everything new that’s available including Wi-Fi 6. In fact, it is the world’s first phone with such technology embedded in it, according to Samsung. Stereo speakers with AKG Sound and Dolby Atmos technology.
The last of the line-up, the Galaxy S10E is the lesser equipped model, but the more affordable. It comes with a flat this time 5.8-inch Dynamic AMOLED display, but the screen resolution drops to Full HD+ instead of QuadHD+. The phone also drops a camera sensor in its setup offering only a dual camera with 12MP + 16MP sensors but they’re as good as the ones on the Galaxy S9 phones from last year at least. Galaxy S10E is equipped with a 3,100 mAh in capacity battery and the same CPU as its siblings.
