1. The S10 series has a maximized Infinity-O Display
The new S10 series comes with minimized bezels, a wider 19:9 screen-body ratio, and a punch-hole display for the front camera. It maximizes the screen real estate without any distractions. The Infinity-O display comes in three variants: a 5.8-inch display for the Galaxy S10 E, a 6.1-inch display for the Galaxy S10, and a 6.4-inch display for the Galaxy S10+.
It also has the world’s first dynamic AMOLED display, which delivers amazing visibility and vivid visuals under any lighting condition. As the first HDR 10+ certified device with dynamic tone mapping, the Galaxy S10 generates a wider and more accurate range of colors, even in the darkest of scenes. The screen remains pleasing to the eyes, as the smartphone reduces blue light emissions by 41% even before activating the blue light filter.
2. You can have an enhanced photography experience with its True Vision Multi-Camera
This feature combines a full array of lenses in one powerful device. The Galaxy S10 E has a dual camera set-up, utilizing a 12 megapixel (MP) wide dual aperture lens and a 16 MP ultra-wide lens—a first for the S series. The Galaxy S10+ and the S10, meanwhile, has three rear cameras, including the 12 MP telephoto lens for zoom.
The triple camera set-up of the Galaxy S10 and S10+ lets users easily switch shooting modes, from telephoto (2x optical zoom), to wide (77°) and ultra-wide (123°), perfect for capturing detailed close-up portraits and panorama shots. The S10 E and S10 also carry a 10 MP dual pixel UHD selfie front camera, while the Galaxy S10+ adds another 8 MP camera for artistic live focus selfies and UHD videos. The S10’s upgraded AI also automatically adjusts its settings based on the scenes being captured, and can even suggest composition recommendations to frame the shot beautifully.
The series also has super steady and high-quality video recording, which allow users to take dynamic action videos with minimal shakiness. The rear camera even provides the flexibility to record in HDR10+.
3. It offers great intelligent performance
The Galaxy S10 and Galaxy S10+ have the first-ever ultrasonic fingerprint scanner, which detects every unique nuance of a fingerprint, even with changes in humidity, sunlight, or ambient temperature—offering vault-like security.
They also deliver efficient and seamless user experience with an eight-nm (newton meter) mobile chipset. This allows the devices to launch frequently used applications and games smoothly.
4. It has the largest storage capacity on any Galaxy device!
Select and limited edition models of Galaxy S10+ sport a whopping one (1) terabyte (TB) of built-in storage, expandable up to 1.5 TB! The base models of the series also boast great storage as well. The S10+ and S10 carry eight (8) GB RAM and 128 GB storage, while the S10 E supports six (6) GB RAM and internal memory of 128 GB.
5. It charges easily with its Wireless PowerShare
Samsung also introduces the wireless PowerShare feature on the Galaxy S10, which charges Qi-certified smartphones (phones you can charge wirelessly) by simply placing them against the S10 phones. As an industry-first, the Galaxy S10’s wireless PowerShare will also charge compatible wearables, such as the Galaxy Watch and Galaxy Buds. This allows on-the-go users to avoid the hassle of looking for sockets to charge their devices.
