Samsung is pushing the boundaries of excitement while it defends its title as the world's top smartphone brand.
How exciting is the new lineup?
Samsung is going with an edge to edge screen with a small bezel. The ability to wirelessly charge another device. For this lineup Samsung is using an Infinity-O display. Samsung is going big with the world's first ultrasonic in-screen fingerprint reader. The ultrasonic in-screen fingerprint reader allows users to unlock their device with sound waves. The devices will have up to 4 rear cameras, up to 1TB of built in storage, Android pie, the all new One UI, snapdragon 855 processor and 5G capabilities for the S10 5G.
One thing to note is that none of the Galaxy S10 Phones has a 3D face unlock. The 5G model will come with a 3D depth-sensing camera on the front and back, but that will only assist with photography and AR.
Galaxy S10 Plus, S10, S10E: How and When to Pre-Order
Preorders started on Thursday February 21 at 12:01 AM. Orders are expected to arrive on March 8th which is the same day that the carrier stores will have them available in store.
Galaxy S10 $900:
The Samsung Galaxy S10 has a 6.1 inch screen with slim bezels around the side.
The S10 comes with 3 rear cameras, a 16 megapixel ultra wide sensor with a fixed focus. The rear camera comes with 12 mega pixel dual aperture wide angle lens with OIS. It also has 12 mega pixel telephoto lens with OIS which achieves 2x optical zoom. This will enable the user to take portrait photos with any of the sensors with just a toggle of the screen.
On the front side of the phone you get a 10 mega pixel front facing camera with dual aperture. This means that the camera lets in more light when it senses that it is in a low light environment.
The Galaxy S10 comes with an 8GB ram and you will be able to choose between 128GB or 512GB.
The Galaxy S10, S10 Plus, and S10E will come in a variety of colors. You will be able to choose from Flamingo Pink, Canary Yellow, Prism Green and Prism Blue, as well as Prism Black and Prism White.
Galaxy S10 Plus $1000:
For $100 more you get a larger 6.4 inch screen and a bigger battery. You will get the same rear camera as the S10. For the front facing camera the S10 Plus adds a second selfie lens to the 10 mega pixel camera. Also included is an 8 mega pixel sensor that takes depth mode portrait selfies using hardware rather than software.
The S10 Plus will be available with an 8GB ram and you can choose to go with 128GB or 512GB. However, if you want to go BIG you can buy the 12GB ram with 1TB storage capacity.
Galaxy S10E $750:
The compact Galaxy S10E comes with a 5.8 inch screen. The design of the S10E is shorter and thinner that last years Galaxy S9. Many say that this is Samsung rival to Apple's iPhone XR.
On the S10E you will downgrade for 2 rear cameras compared to 3 on the S10 and S10 Plus. The rear camera comes with wide and ultra wide sensors but no telephoto lens. The front facing camera is the same as the S10 with a 10 mega pixel camera. The S10E is flat so you will lose out on the edge to edge screen. You will also have to do without the fingerprint sensor. However Samsung included a sensor into the power button on the right side of the phone.
With a smaller phone comes a smaller battery. Your options for storage on this device are an 8GB ram with storage options of 128GB or 256GB
Galaxy S10 5G Price TBA:
The Galaxy S10 5G will come with a 6.7 inch screen. The front will have two cameras and the rear will have 4 cameras. This phone comes with 4 rear cameras because the 5G model gets a 3D depth-sensing camera in addition to all the lenses on the S10 Plus.
The Galaxy S10 5G comes with a bigger battery and a 8GB ram and 256GB storage capacity. One thing to note is that this phone will be the only S10 model without the micro SD slot. This phone will launch exclusively on Verizon. It will be added to the other carriers later on in the year. The pricing on the S10 5G is still to be announced so be on the lookout for that.
