Samsung entered 2019 in a big bang by releasing its latest S10 family that includes S10 Plus, Galaxy S10e, and Galaxy S10 5G.
Technology enthusiasts have definitely been spoilt with more to choose from as other competitors wait to storm the shelves in various outlets.
A closer look at the Samsung Galaxy S10 family means it will be easier than ever to find the right phone.
Samsung this year has an aluminum frame and Gorilla Glass 6 front and back. Each panel is curved and fits into the frame perfectly.
The S8 and S9 series had more obvious curves, where those of the S10 series are more subtle. As flagships go, the S10 brood is right up there with the best metal-and-glass from Apple, Huawei, and LG.
Galaxy S10 series are brighter, have higher contrast, and are still power efficient. Each phone’s screen features a punch-hole selfie camera, but the rest of the sensors are behind the glass. Samsung calls this the Infinity-O display.
Considering Galaxy S10e, it has a 5.8-inch screen with Full HD+ resolution; the Galaxy S10 has a 6.1-inch display with Quad HD+ resolution, while the Galaxy S10 Plus has a 6.4-inch Quad HD+ display.
Galaxy S10 5G has a huge 6.7-inch Quad HD+ display. All four adopt the 19:9 screen aspect ratio, making for 93.1% screen-to-body ratio.
The phones feature ultrasonic in-display fingerprint readers, which read a 3D image of your thumb through the glass and store the information in the secure Knox module on the phone.
Displays have also improved blue light control Samsung claims reduces eye strain by 42%, and Gorilla Glass 6 for protection.
Cameras are another core aspect of the Galaxy S10 line. The S10e has two rear cameras, the S10 and S10 Plus have three rear cameras, and the S10 5G will have four rear cameras. All of them benefit from on-device artificial intelligence that can recognize objects and scenes, and make suggestions on the fly.
For performance, the Galaxy S10 line runs on the Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 processor with RAM ranging between 6GB and 12GB, and storage ranging between 128GB and 1TB.
Batteries run 3,100mAh, 3,400mAh, 4,100mAh, and 4,500mAh for the S10e, S10, S10 Plus, and S10 5G, respectively. Samsung claims each is able to last a full day. They all support rapid wireless charging, as well as reverse wireless charging for accessories.
Galaxy S10 family will be among the first to ship with Wi-Fi 6 on board. Wi-Fi 6 is faster and more compatible with other Wi-Fi gear when compared to Wi-Fi 5 and older. Bluetooth 5.0 is on board, as is GPS/GLONASS for worldwide location services.
