Samsung recently launched its latest flagship series ahead of MWC 2019, that is, the Galaxy S10 series. The Indian prices for the Galaxy S10 series had been announced earlier only. However, the company has now had a proper launch in India. The launch also tells us about the launch offers and the availability of the devices.
Samsung Galaxy S10e
Right off the bat, the first device in the list is the Samsung Galaxy S10e. Unlike the usual edge shaped displays, the Galaxy S10e comes with a flat display. That said, it still is a 5.8-inch FullHD+ Dynamic AMOLED display with a 19:9 screen resolution. Under the hood, you get the Exynos 9820 SoC paired with either 6GB or 8GB of RAM. As for storage, you can choose between 128GB or 256GB of internal storage. Thankfully, there is also a microSD card slot that supports expandable storage up to 512GB.
As for camera optics, the Galaxy S10e comes with a dual camera setup at the back. You get a primary 16MP ultra-wide f/2.2 sensor coupled with a dual-pixel (f/1.5, f/2.4) 12MP sensor with OIS. Up front, there is a 10MP f/1.9 dual pixel sensor for selfies. The entire device is juiced up by a 3,100mAh battery. Also, the Galaxy S10e comes with a capacitive fingerprint scanner. However, Samsung is also offering super fast and secure face recognition on the device.
Samsung Galaxy S10
The Galaxy S10, which is the middle man in the series, is probably the best value for money in the lot. The device comes with the same flagship Exynos 9820 chipset but comes only in 8GB RAM variants. The display here is a 6.1-inch Wide Quad HD+ Dynamic AMOLED display with a 19:9 aspect ratio. For storage, the Galaxy S10 will be available in two variants of 8+128GB and 8+512GB. Additionally, there is the support for microSD cards up to 512GB.
As for camera optics, the Galaxy S10e comes with a triple camera setup at the back. The dual camera setup from the Galaxy S10e makes its presence here as well. However, the third lens is a 12MP f/2.4 telephoto lens. Up front, you get the same 10MP f/1.9 dual pixel sensor for selfies. The battery here is slightly bumped up to a 3,400mAh battery. Unlike the Galaxy S10e, the Galaxy S10 comes with an in-display fingerprint scanner. Speaking about scanners, the Galaxy S10 also includes an HR (heart rate) scanner as well. And like you’d expect, there is the face unlock option as well.
Samsung Galaxy S10+
Last on this list is the Samsung Galaxy S10+, which is basically an enhanced version of the Galaxy S10. It is for those of you who want the utter best of everything. The Galaxy S10+ comes with a 6.4-inch Wide Quad HD+ Dynamic AMOLED display with a 19:9 aspect ratio. But that isn’t the best part about it. It’s the variants that you should be excited about. The base variant of the Galaxy S10+ offers 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage. However, there are two more special edition variants of the device available only in ceramic builds. There’s an 8GB+512GB up for grabs. However, the highlight of the show is the highest variant which offers a whopping 12GB of RAM alongside 1TB of internal storage. Oh, and there’s the microSD card slot for expandable storage up to another 512GB.
When you look at the camera, it is pretty much the same. The rear cameras are the same as the Samsung Galaxy S10. However, up front is where the story changes. The Samsung Galaxy S10+ does come with the same 10MP f/1.9 dual pixel sensor for selfies. However, there’s an extra 8MP f/2.2 sensor as well for depth effect in selfies. All in all, the Galaxy S10+ comes equipped with a total of 5 cameras. And powering this device is a decently sized 4,100mAh battery. Similar to the Galaxy S10, you get an in-display fingerprint scanner and face unlock here.
