[Video] Hands-On: Get to Know the Galaxy S10
Africa, 12 April 2019 – At its core, the Galaxy S10 line was created to offer users more. More choices than ever before, which means more control over your mobile experience, and more powerful innovations that help you do what you can’t.
By introducing an array of industry-first technologies, including next-generation display, camera and performance upgrades, the Galaxy S10 points the way to a faster, bolder, and brighter future. In other words, Samsung Electronics’ new flagship family has taken the Galaxy experience that users love and refined and reimagined it for a brand new era.
A Premium Design
The Galaxy S10 lineup is composed of three unique devices: the Galaxy S10, S10+ and S10e. Each features a premium design that builds on the Galaxy series’ signature heritage, and raises the bar for smartphones to follow.
The Galaxy S10 takes the barely there top and bottom bezels that have become synonymous with Samsung’s flagship phones and reduces them even further. This creates more room to watch movies, read books, and play games on the immersive, 19:9 Infinity-O Display. The devices also feature an in-display camera design that maximizes screen real estate by packing sensors and camera technologies into a tiny hole.
Even with their larger screens and more immersive visuals, the Galaxy S10 models feature slimmer and lighter1designs than last year’s editions, and offer users a comfortable one-handed grip. Each Galaxy S10 is available in a variety of attractive colors, including Prism White, Prism Black, Prism Green, Prism Blue, Flamingo Pink and Canary Yellow. Additional color variants include Ceramic Black and Ceramic White.2
An Epic Camera
The Galaxy S10’s intuitive camera brings images to life through a combination of new technologies and advanced intelligence.
Step up your photo game with a set of powerful lenses that lets you capture more moments in exquisite detail. Each Galaxy S10 comes equipped with Samsung’s all-new 123-degree Ultra Wide lens – which features a field of view that’s similar to the human eye, and allows you to capture the world exactly as you see it – as well as a 12MP, Wide-angle, Dual Aperture, Super Speed Dual Pixel lens. The Galaxy S10 and S10+’s triple rear camera setup also includes a 12MP Telephoto (zoom) lens, and the Galaxy S10 5G’s quad rear camera setup features an additional 3D Depth Camera, which improves the quality of portrait-style images.
Each Galaxy S10 also comes equipped with a 10MP, UHD, Dual Pixel front-facing camera that’s perfect for taking high-quality selfies. On the Galaxy S10+ and S10 5G, it’s paired with an RGB depth lens for added capabilities.
Working behind the scenes to help you snap stellar pics is a Neural Processing Unit (NPU) that streamlines image processing and makes features like Scene Optimizer even better. The camera also takes video recording to the next level with its Super Steady video stabilization technology, which lets you take fluid videos during even your most active moments – like when you’re in the middle of an amazing concert or on a bumpy bike ride. And in an industry first, the rear camera also allows you to record in HDR10+ for brilliantly detailed videos.
A ‘Dynamic’ Display
The Galaxy series has a history of introducing groundbreaking display technologies, and the Galaxy S10 adds an exciting new chapter to that legacy.
Capable of producing over 16 million colors, with 100 percent mobile color volume in the DCI-P3 color range, the Galaxy S10’s Dynamic AMOLED display offers extraordinary contrast for even deeper blacks and brighter whites. It features a peak luminance of 1200 nits, and it’s the first mobile display to support HDR10+: a next-generation open standard for HDR video. This powerful combination of industry-leading specs allows the display to depict content in incredible detail.
The Dynamic AMOLED display also includes an in-display fingerprint-recognition system that adds new levels of comfort and security to unlocking your phone. Samsung’s new in-display Ultrasonic Fingerprint Scanner utilizes ultrasonic waves to map out your fingerprint’s unique pattern, and features an anti-spoofing algorithm that enables it to recognize your real, physical fingerprint and reject images or copies of it.
Powerful Charging Options
In addition to boasting support for Fast Wireless Charging 2.0, the Galaxy S10 features an all-new wireless charging innovation that will change how you power your other devices.
The Galaxy S10’s Wireless PowerShare3 technology allows you to share your power with compatible phones and wearables when they need it most. This means that if you’re away from an outlet and your Galaxy Buds are running low on power, you’ll be able to charge them up by simply placing their case on the back of your phone. It’s as simple as that. The Galaxy S10 also includes dual charging support, which allows you to charge your phone and another compatible device simultaneously using a single wired charger.
