Samsung Galaxy S10

It’s a week away from the big Galaxy Unpacked event in San Francisco where Samsung is set to unveil its latest Galaxy S10 family of flagship smartphones. Perhaps not a huge surprise, we’ve seen countless leaks over the past few weeks. This latest leak though, truly leaves no stones left unturned.

Thanks to the folks at GSMArena who got hold of purported tell-all full spec sheet for the latest Galaxy S10 series, we now know exactly what to expect come 20 February 2019.


The document reveals the Galaxy S10 will feature a 6.1-inch Infinity-O display pushing QHD+ resolution (3040×1440 @ 550PPI), while the Galaxy S10+ gets a 6.3-inch QHD+ display with a slightly lower density screen of 522PPI. The entry-level Galaxy S10e will come with a 5.8-inch Infinity-O display with FHD+ resolution (2280×1080 @ 438PPI). The display on the two top spec models feature Dynamic AMOLED HDR+ and comes protected with Gorilla Glass 6. The Galaxy S10e will get a generation older Gorilla Glass 5 protection.

For the uninitiated, Infinity-O is Samsung’s fancy marketing term for the now in-trend punch-hole display where the front-facing camera is located on the top right corner of the display.


The trio will be powered by the Exynos 9820 chipset coupled with a base 6GB RAM, up to 12GB of RAM. As seen on previous generation models, specific markets like the US will feature Qualcomm chipsets, and in this case the latest Snapdragon 855.

Samsung will offer various configurations and colour options including:

Galaxy S10

  • 6GB RAM + 128GB storage
  • 8GB RAM + 512GB storage
  • 12GB RAM + 1TB storage

Galaxy S10+

  • 6GB RAM + 128GB storage
  • 8GB RAM + 512GB storage

Galaxy S10e

  • 6GB RAM + 128GB storage
  • 8GB RAM + 256GB storage

For the Galaxy S10 and S10+ models with 6GB and 8GB RAM, colour options include Prism White, Prism Green and Prism Black. The 12GB RAM Galaxy S10+ will only be available in Luxurious Ceramic Black and Ceramic White. The Galaxy S10e will offer Prism White, Prism Green, Prism Black and a Canary Yellow option. Make no mistake, Samsung is pitting the Galaxy S10e against Apple’s iPhone XR. Will there be a Blue or Red option in the future? Hmm.


The Galaxy S10 and S10+ will feature in-screen ultrasonic fingerprint authentication which is supposedly better than Huawei’s dynamic pressure sensor-based implementation. Using 3D technology, the fingerprint scanner is said to be more secure.

Strangely on the Galaxy S10e, Samsung has implemented a side-mounted fingerprint sensor built into the power button, ala the Sony Xperia series.

Samsung Galaxy S10Camera

Cameras have always been a core strength of the Galaxy S series, and this time the Galaxy S10 and S10+ will be getting a triple-camera setup for the first time. It’s one short of the Galaxy A9, but who’s counting.

The triple-camera system consists of a 12MP f/1.5 main shooter with variable aperture, a 12MP f/2.4 telephoto camera and a 16MP f/2.2 ultra-wide angle shooter. The lower rung Galaxy S10e gets a more conventional dual-camera setup – a 12MP f/1.5 main shooter with variable aperture and a secondary 16MP f/2.2 unit with a ultra-wide angle lens.

All three phones will get a 10MP f/1.9 selfie shooter, but the Galaxy S10+ gets a dual-camera front-facing camera setup with the addition of an 8MP f/2.2 secondary sensor. For the first time, the selfie camera on the S10 series gets Dual Pixel autofocus and is capable of 4K video capture.


The new devices feature the biggest batteries ever in a Galaxy S series, with up to 4,100mAh (on the Galaxy S10+). This is 600mAh more than the previous gen Galaxy S9+. The regular Galaxy S10 gets a 3,400mAh and the budget S10e features a more down-to-earth 3,100mAh unit.

The devices fast-charge via USB-C, and like the new Mate 20 series, support reverse wireless charging.

The new Galaxy S10 family will run Android Pie out of the box with the latest One UI on top.


Aesthetics-wise, the Galaxy S10 series isn’t a big departure from its predecessor with exception from the borderless Infinity-O display on the front. Around the back, it takes design cues from the Galaxy Note9, featuring a horizontal camera array.

Stay tuned for updates

Galaxy Unpacked will be happening on 20 February 2019 in San Francisco at 11AM PST (3AM MYT, 21 February). Catch the livestream at I’ll be reporting live at Unpacked, so stay tuned!
