Samsung S10: Samsung Galaxy S10 Price, Release Date & Full Specs

The Galaxy S10 is a wonderful 10th anniversary phone for Samsung technology company and its storied S series.

It delivers on change with a novel-looking Infinity-O screen so large it displaces the front camera, and a triple-lens rear camera that takes ultra-wide photos.

Its in-screen fingerprint sensor tech should serve you well, while its Wireless PowerShare could serve your friends well. That’s a lot of change – just know that it comes at a high price.

The Samsung Galaxy S10 has been engineered to be a conversation changer, a phone that’s intended to turn everyone’s yearly question of “Do I really need to upgrade?” into a more exclamatory “Do I really need to upgrade!”

Our hands-on time with the S10 proves that it does make this case, with some clear caveats.

It’s the 6.1-inch Infinity Display that really sells this phone. It introduces a nearly-edge-to-edge look that stretches top to bottom, with pixels spilling over the curved edges at the sides – there’s no room for big bezels on Samsung’s 2019 flagship smartphone.

Its new Infinity-O screen – also a feature of the Galaxy S10 Plus and cheaper Galaxy S10e – is so large it actually displaces the front camera, consigning it to a small ‘punch-hole’ in the screen.

All of the important sensors are neatly tucked behind this vibrant and bright Super AMOLED display.

Also behind the glass is the new ultrasonic fingerprint sensor. You won’t find a fingerprint pad on the back anymore, or anywhere visibly on the phone.

Samsung put its sensor – now invisible – on the front, where we feel it belongs.

The S10 officially makes punch-hole displays a trend after the idea debuted on the Honor View 20, and in-screen fingerprint sensors more mainstream after they appeared on the OnePlus 6T, Huawei Mate 20 Pro, and a few Vivo phones.

It’s all in the cause of achieving that impressive 93.1% screen-to-body ratio on the front of the phone.

Maximization is also the idea behind the Galaxy S10’s rear-facing triple-lens camera. Samsung’s camera array has lenses to take normal, telephoto and new ultra-wide photos.

The ultra-wide camera is all about capturing more of what’s in front of you without having to back up.

Sure, LG phones have touted ultra-wide camera lenses for years, most recently the LG V40, but Samsung’s cameras have been more consistent in low-light conditions.

The feature is finally in a a flagship-level phone you want.

The Galaxy S10 also comes with thrilling and amazing features everyone can possibly get.

Its Wireless PowerShare feature lets you use the back of the S10 to Qi charge another phone or the new Galaxy Buds, cloning the reverse wireless charging idea in the Huawei Mate 20 Pro, a phone that’s not widely available in certain territories, including the US.

The S10 is expensive, even more so than last year’s Galaxy S9, although it’s markedly better value than the iPhone XS, which is more expensive and has a smaller 5.8-inch screen.

The Galaxy S10 is an amalgam of other handsets’ single hallmark features packed into one phone, while Samsung pioneers as many technical features as it can cram in – faster Wi-Fi 6 and HDR10+ are both firsts for smartphones.

The Galaxy S10e is cheaper and almost as good, while the Galaxy S10 Plus is the phone you’ll want if you can handle its price and screen size.

Moreover, that’s to say nothing of the Galaxy S10 5G and the foldable Samsung Galaxy X, which early adopters may look for true innovation at a higher price.

The Samsung Galaxy S10 release date is Friday, March 8, which is one week earlier than last year’s phone.

It was officially announced on February 20, with pre-orders opening right away in some countries.

While in the US, Galaxy S10 pre-orders started on the 21st of February.

The Galaxy S10 price is $899 / £799 / AU$1,349 / AED 3,199, meaning you’re going to be spending an additional $180 / £60 / AED 100 on this phone over the S9 launch price.

If you like the look of this phone but think that price is a tad high, you have two options: you can go for the cheaper Galaxy S10e, which starts at $749 / £669 / AU$1,199 / AED 2,699, or suck up the price hike.

You should marvel at the new 6.1-inch screen and 128GB base storage, and realize that Apple charges $100 / £200 / AU$430 more for the 5.8-inch iPhone XS with 64GB of storage.

Ordering the Galaxy S10 in advance of March 8 will net you bonuses in some countries.

In the US, for example, Samsung is offering free wireless Galaxy Buds worth $149 / AU$249 when you pre-order either the Galaxy S10 or Galaxy S10 Plus.

Display

In fact, the Galaxy S10’s 6.1-inch Super AMOLED display panel looks better than anything Samsung sells its rivals.

Meanwhile, it has well curved edges with pixels that spill over the sides, amped-up brightness for better outdoor visibility, and HDR10+ support for superior contrast and colour.

Samsung has successfully avoided a notch cut-out at the top of its flagship phones, instead using a laser-cut hole in the top-right corner of the screen to embed the front-facing camera, as on the Honor View 20.

The S10’s dimensions are 149.9 x 70.4 x 7.8mm (it weighs 157g), so it’s only marginally taller and wider than the S9 with its 5.8-inch screen, and noticeably thinner and a bit lighter.

Design

Its thinner aluminum frame is firmly coated between smooth glass, with the back coming in your choice of color: Flamingo Pink, Prism Black, Prism Blue, Prism White, Canary Yellow and Prism Green.

Samsung Galaxy S10 colors will vary by region, with the US getting all but yellow and green.

However, it also comes wth an ultrasonic fingerprint sensor, different from the optical sensors on the OnePlus 6T and Huawei Mate 20 Pro, for example.

Samsung uses Qualcomm-backed tech that’s said to be better, and more secure, by making a 3D scan of your print, but we’ll have to test it out day-to-day.

Yet, it’s unlocked the phone when we put our thumb on the lower-third of the device. More literal impressions to come in our full review.

And here’s a welcomed classic that hasn’t changed since the first S phone a decade ago: the 3.5mm headphone jack.

Samsung is one of the few phone makers that includes the standard headphone jack in 2019 – and it’s doing it despite introducing the wireless Galaxy Buds.

Camera

Samsung wants you to take photos at any angle, so the Galaxy S10 has a triple-lens camera on back with a 12MP regular lens, 12MP optically zoomed telephoto lens, and a brand new 16MP ultra-wide lens.

Samsung’s 123-degree field of view is rather wide, which serves the purpose of not having to back up to get everything in a shot. But that may result in an unnatural fisheye look.

This ultra-wide camera also lacks OIS compared to the other two lenses.

On the front, we have a single 10MP camera with dual auto-focuses. If you upgrade to the S10 Plus, you’ll also get an 8MP camera meant for enhancing depth in portrait photos.

On the video side, the software has been upgraded to record in HDR10+ and offer Digital Video Stabilization.

Battery Life & Specs

The Samsung Galaxy S10 gets proper under-the-hood upgrades, touting the new top-of-the-line Snapdragon or Exynos chipsets, depending on which country you live in.

More so, with these amazing chipsets built in the phone, it should be pretty fast in processing.

It’ll also come with 8GB of RAM – a serious upgrade over the 4GB of RAM in last year’s S9 – and includes options for 128GB or 512GB of internal storage.

It contains a 3,400mAh battery, an upgrade over the 3,000mAh capacity of the S9.

Also onboard is next-gen Wi-Fi 6, which will support seamless transition between Wi-Fi routers and is four times faster than 802.11ax.

It should deliver a 20% speed boost, but you’ll need a new router to really get any use out of this feature.
