Samsung Galaxy S10, Galaxy S10 Plus, and Galaxy S10e now official

0

We all saw it coming, and now the newest additions to the Galaxy S family from Samsung have finally been revealed. There are three new phone models in total, namely the Galaxy S10, Galaxy S10 Plus, and Galaxy S10e. Each phone is seemingly targeted towards a different segment of the market, but all of them are built with the same DNA.

They’ve been designed to become the ultimate mobile entertainment and productivity devices. Samsung has been making these things for about 10 years now, so they’ve become pretty good at it. Now, we know how the new models all differ from each other as well as from the competition.

Galaxy S10 Plus


The Galaxy S10 Plus leads the pack with the biggest screen, the most memory and storage, and the highest battery capacity of the bunch. It’s the out-and-out flagship out of the three, and it shows.

It features a 6.4-inch WQHD+ Dynamic AMOLED screen, an in-display ultrasonic fingerprint scanner, Wireless PowerShare, and all the latest high-end hardware and software niceties. It even comes with the newest version of One UI, Samsung’s refreshing new take on the Android UI.

Here’s the full list of specs of the Galaxy S10 Plus:

Galaxy S10


Next up, the proper-sized handheld, the Galaxy S10. It has a slightly smaller screen, just a single camera up front, and a slightly smaller battery. It runs on the exact same innards as the S10 Plus, however.

Much of the specs remains the same, including the in-display fingerprint scanner, Wireless PowerShare that can be used to charge other wireless charging enabled devices, and so on. It’s perhaps a more affordable version of the new Samsung flagship but delivers on pretty much the same level as the bigger one.

Here now is the full spec list for the Galaxy S10:

  • 6.1-inch WQHD+ Dynamic AMOLED
  • Infinity Display (bezel-less)
  • 8nm Octa-Core
  • 8GB RAM + 128GB internal storage
  • Expandable up to 512GB
  • Rear cam: Dual Pixel 12MP OIS f/1.5, f/2.4 Wide
  • + 16MP f/2.2 Ultra Wide lens
  • + 12MP OIS f/2.4 Telephoto lens
  • Front cam: Dual Pixel 10MP AF f/1.9
  • 3,400mAh with Fast Charging
  • Android 9.0 Pie
  • IP68 water- and dust-resistant
  • Ultrasonic fingerprint scanner
  • Face recognition
  • Dolby Atmos stereo speakers
  • 3.5mm headphone jack
  • Always-on display
  • Scene Optimizer
  • Bixby
  • USB Type-C
  • Fast Wireless Charging 2.0
  • Wireless PowerShare
  • LTE Hybrid Dual SIM

Galaxy S10e


Now comes the Galaxy S10e, the most budget-friendly model in the line-up. It features a similar design to the Galaxy S10 and is equipped with a respectable amount of RAM and internal storage. Its main selling point, apart from all the nice hardware and software that it offers, is that more attractive price tag.

Here’s the list of specs for the Galaxy S10e:

  • 5.8-inch FHD+ Dynamic AMOLED
  • Infinity Display
  • 8nm Octa-Core
  • 6GB RAM + 128GB internal storage
  • (Expandable up to 512GB)
  • Rear cam: Dual Pixel 12MP OIS f/1.5, f/2.4 Wide
  • + 16MP f/2.2 Ultra-Wide lens
  • Front cam: Dual Pixel 10MP AF f/1.9
  • 3,100mAh with Fast Charging
  • Android 9.0 Pie
  • IP68 water- and dust-resistant
  • Side fingerprint scanner
  • Face recognition
  • Dolby Atmos stereo speakers
  • 3.5mm headphone jack
  • Always-on display
  • Scene optimizer
  • Bixby
  • USB Type-C
  • Fast Wireless Charging 2.0
  • Wireless PowerShare
  • LTE Hybrid Dual SIM

The Galaxy S10e is not unlike the budget-centric iPhone Xr from Apple.
