Amid much fanfare to celebrate a decade of its bestselling Galaxy line-up of smartphones, Samsung Philippines launched last night in Cove Manila the next generation Galaxy S10 series. The variants include the Galaxy S10e with a 5.8 inch display, the Galaxy S10 with a 6.1 inch display, and the Galaxy S10+ with a viewing screen of 6.4 inches.
Aside from its much-vaunted Infinity O display, here are the main features to look out for in the 2019 Galaxy S10 smartphones:
Pro Camcorder and True Vision Multi-Camera that combines a full array of lenses in one powerful device. The Galaxy S10+ and the S10 has three rear cameras, utilizing the 12 MP Telephoto lens for zoom. On the other hand, Galaxy S10e has a dual camera set-up. It uses a 12 MP Wide Dual Aperture Lens and a 16MP Ultra-Wide Lens, a first for Samsung’s S series.
Ultrasonic Fingerprint Scanner offers vault-like security to keep the device safe.
1TB (!!!) of built-in storage expandable up to 1.5TB on the limited-edition Galaxy S10+ variant. The base models of the Galaxy S10+ and Galaxy S10 carry 8GB RAM and 128GB storage, while the Galaxy S10e supports 6GB RAM and internal memory of 128GB.
Battery capacity of 4,100 mAh for the Galaxy S10+, 3,400 mAh for the Galaxy S10, and 3,100 mAh
for the Galaxy S10e.
Wireless PowerShare feature which allows the charging of Qi-certified smartphones by simply placing them against the flagship smartphone. The main phone (in this case the Galaxy S10) 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.
