With the Samsung throwing their massive launch party where they will finally take the lid off the box. The Samsung galaxy S10 will be shown to the world on February 20th. That said Samsung’s flagship phone had seen its share of leaks, so it’s unsure whether we will find out anything we don’t already know.
During the party that takes places in San Francisco, we’re expecting to see not two but, five phones revealed. As you would expect, it will be centered on the Galaxy S10 and S10 Plus. We are also hoping to see the cheaper version of the Galaxy S10 called the S10e. The foldable Samsung F should also be at the event showing us how dynamic the Korean giants are. There have been rumors of a 5G Galaxy S10, which in theory should make it bigger and bad-ass, although it is unsure if we will see much of it.
Now on to the fun stuff, here’s a rundown on everything we’ve learned about the Galaxy S10. Are you ready? We’ve learned a lot!
What’s inside the Samsung Galaxy S10, S10+ and S10e?
In the next few days, people are going to get crazy to find out exactly what Samsung has in store for us. The two core handsets have been their most prominent performers in a long way. And with the Galaxy S10e, you should see in the running to being the iPhone XR’s biggest rival. The cheaper S10e will come with a multitude of colors, and although it will be slightly lower-specced, it’s not to be laughed at.
With all the leaks that surfaced, we’re pretty sure what to expect although some details are still anyone’s guess. But with the specification sheets from GSMArena, we now know what to expect from the S10 models. Here’s what the sheets show us:
- Galaxy S10: 128GB/6GB RAM or 512GB/8GB RAM
- Galaxy S10+: 128GB/6GB RAM, 512GB/8GB RAM or 1TB/12GB RAM
- Galaxy S10e: 128GB/6GB RAM or 256GB/8GB RAM
As you can see these are some seriously powerful handsets, even the S10e which is slightly lower-specced looks good on paper. As for the chipset that depends on your region, you will either be looking at the Snapdragon 855 or Exynos 9820.
When considering the battery, you will see each handset to have a different battery size. As you might have guessed the Galaxy S10e will have the smallest battery, but because of the different footprints, this might not be a bad thing. Of course, the S10+ will see the largest battery. Let’s have a look at the breakdown:
- Galaxy S10e: 3,100mAh
- Galaxy S10: 3,400mAh
- Galaxy S10+: 4,100mAh
When it comes to cameras, the S10 and S10+ will feature triple rear camera whereas the S10e will have a dual lens. If you consider yourself as a photographer, it’s worth knowing how the triple cameras are laid out.
- 12-megapixel, f/2.4 45-degree, telephoto lens
- 12-megapixel, f/1.5 77-degree, standard lens
- 16-megapixel, f/2.2 fixed-focus, 123-degree ultra-wide angle lens
When looking at the front facing camera, you should be pleasantly surprised; they can record in 4K. Rumor has it the S10 might have a stabilization features although this all speculation.
Looking at the leaked sheets, you can see that the screen size and resolution have also been confirmed. The list below shows you how each handset will line up:
- Galaxy S10e: 5.8-inch / 2280 x 1080 pixels / 19:9 / 438 PPI
- Galaxy S10: 6.1-inch/ 3040 x 1440 pixel / 19:9 / 550 PPI
- Galaxy S10+: 6.3-inch / 3040 x 1440 pixels / 19:9 / 522 PPI
As you can see the screen resolution looks pretty smart boasting QHD+ screens, we’re expecting excellent quality. You might have also noticed that the display on these handsets being able to reach 800 nits. From the looks of it, Samsung will outperform any other handset in regards to display… again!
You might have read at the start of the article I mentioned the possibility of a 5G Galaxy S10 being available. The spec sheets confirm this still to be a rumor, although, the S10+ 1TB/12GB RAM looks like it will be capable. Unfortunately, we have to wait and see.
Samsung Unpacked Event – What else?
Super Night Shot
It seems Samsung is trying to take a page out of Huawei’s book by introducing their super night shot. You will see pictures having better exposure in low-light.
I won’t spend much time on this as we have already seen it in the Galaxy S9. We do expect Samsung to have made a few tweaks to the system. It will be available on all models, so I think it’s time to say goodbye to the old UI.
With many headsets abandoning headphone ports, it’s nice to see that Samsung is sticking with them. We all know that Bluetooth headphones are still not on the same level as wired headphones. So this is excellent news for the people not ready to move to Bluetooth audio.
It’s an awesome feature. You will now be able to share your power wirelessly with your friends. Having one charger won’t be a problem anymore as you’ll be able to charge two devices at once.
When it comes to pricing it’s still all smoke and mirrors.
- Galaxy S10/+: starts at $1,021 ends at $1,788
- Galaxy S10e: $855
As you can see they don’t come cheap, well, neither does any of the flagship smartphones.
You’ll be happy to know that pre-orders in the USA are happening right now, with pre-orders set for delivery by the 8th March.
Overall it looks like the Samsung S10 will be flying off the shelves, the hype has been crazy for the past few months. With the rumors flying around about the gadgets becoming available with the S10, it’s no surprise.
Besides the smartphone, we are expecting to see fitness trackers, smartwatch and wireless Samsung earbuds.
