A New Way to Look at Your Smartphones
The Galaxy S10 maximizes the screen real estate without any distractions. With its minimized bezels, this gadget offers a wider 19:9 screen-body ratio and a punch-hole display for the front camera. The Infinity-O Display comes in three variants: a 5.8-inch display for the Galaxy S10e, a 6.1-inch display for the Galaxy S10, and a 6.4-inch display for the Galaxy S10+.

The Galaxy S10 also has the world’s first Dynamic AMOLED Display, delivering 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 already reduces blue light emissions by 41% even before activating the Blue Light Filter.

The Galaxy S10’s True Vision Multi-Camera combines a full array of lenses in one powerful device. The Galaxy S10e has a dual camera set-up, utilizing a 12 MP Wide Dual Aperture Lens and a 16MP Ultra-Wide Lens -- a first for the S series. The Galaxy S10+ and the S10 sport three rear cameras, adding the 12 MP Telephoto lens for zoom.

When it comes to its camera, 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 epic panorama shots. Both the S10e and S10 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. Powered by upgraded AI, the Galaxy S10 automatically adjusts its settings based on the scenes being captured, and can even suggest composition recommendations to frame the shot beautifully.

The Galaxy S10 also functions as a Pro Camcorder, offering Super Steady & High-Quality Video Recording. This allows users to take dynamic action videos with minimal shakiness. Both front and rear cameras can shoot in up-to UHD quality, and in an industry first, the rear camera provides the flexibility to record in HDR10+.

Intelligence Beyond Compare
Ensuring maximum phone security, the Galaxy S10 & Galaxy S10+ use the first-ever embedded Ultrasonic Fingerprint Scanner that reads the 3D contours of a physical thumbprint – not a 2D image of it – for improved anti-spoofing. The feature detects every unique nuance of a fingerprint, even with changes in humidity, sunlight, or ambient temperature, offering vault-like security to keep the device safe.

Operating faster than ever, the Galaxy S10 delivers efficient and seamless user experience with an 8nm mobile chipset. Engineered for the best possible performance, the flagship phone’s hardware increases CPU & GPU performance while reducing power consumption. This allows the device to launch frequently used applications and games smoothly.

The Galaxy S10 also offers the largest storage capacity available on a Galaxy device, with 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.

Built to adjust to its users’ needs, the Galaxy S10 automatically optimizes battery, CPU, RAM, and even device temperature based on how the smartphone is used. It also sports a wider battery capacity than the previous Galaxy variants: 4,100 mAh for the Galaxy S10+, 3,400 mAh for the Galaxy S10, and 3,100 mAh for the Galaxy S10e.

Continuously Exceeding Expectations
Samsung also introduces the Wireless PowerShare feature on the Galaxy S10, allowing the charging of Qi-certified smartphones by simply placing them against the flagship smartphone. 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.

In addition, the Galaxy S10 is capable of charging itself and a second device simultaneously via Wireless PowerShare , while connected to just one regular charger. One can save time by powering up multiple gadgets in one go, allowing users to tackle their day with fully-charged devices.
