Samsung Galaxy S10, Galaxy S10 Plus and Galaxy S10E launched, price And specifications

After announcing the Galaxy Fold, Samsung launched the Galaxy S10 series at its Unpacked 2019 event in San Francisco. The company's latest flagship lineup includes the Galaxy S10, S10e and S10+. These phones have been leaked multiple times in the past, and the official specs and design are in line with what we have seen already. The Galaxy S10 lineup will be coming to India soon, and Samsung is reportedly holding preview events in 8 cities in India on Thursday, February 21.
The Galaxy S10 and S10+ are the company’s high-end flagship offerings that tout new Infinity-O displays, ultrasonic in-display fingerprint sensors, reverse wireless charging and Exynos 9820 chipsets, among other things. The Galaxy S10e, on the other hand, is equivalent to the iPhone XR in Apple’s premium lineup. The S10e misses out on a few features without compromising on the experience, and it also comes with a more affordable price tag.

Galaxy S10, S10+ and S10e price

The Galaxy S10 series has been announced for the US market right now, but the flagships will come to India soon enough. In the US, the Galaxy S10 carries a starting price of USD 899 (approx Rs 63,000), while the S10+ starts at USD 999 (approx Rs 70,000). The S10e is the cheapest of the lot with a starting price of USD 749 (approx Rs 53,000). The Galaxy S10 trio will be available for preorder starting Thursday, February 21. The devices will start shipping from March 8. The India pricing and release date have not been announced just yet.

Galaxy S10, S10+ and S10e specifications

The Galaxy S10 and S10+ offer a similar design language as they both get curved AMOLED Infinity-O displays, Gorilla Glass 6 rear panels and triple cameras. The two phones mainly differ in size as the regular S10 gets a 6.1-inch QHD+ (3040x1440) display and the Plus models sports a 6.4-inch QHD+ (3040x1440) display. Both the phones offer 19:9 ratios with super thin bezels all around and displays that support HDR10+ and up to 1200 nits of brightness.
The other big difference is the hole-punch display on the two phones, where the former gets a small cutout for a single selfie camera, while the latter gets a pill-shaped hole for dual selfie cameras. Both the phones are also the company’s first to sport an ultrasonic in-display fingerprint sensor, which Samsung claims is a more intuitive sensor that uses ultrasonic waves to detect and match your fingerprint with the data stored in the device.

All three phones come with glass back panels to support wireless charging, and like the Huawei Mate 20, the Galaxy S10 supports reverse wireless charging, allowing you to charge a device like the Galaxy Buds by placing it on the back of the S10.
The Galaxy S10e gets a smaller 5.8-inch screen with a flat AMOLED panel and a FHD+ (2280x1440) resolution along with HDR10+ support. It does not get an ultrasonic in-display fingerprint sensor, but rather a side fingerprint sensor embedded in the power button.
Powering the Galaxy S10 trio is the new Exynos 9820 chipset based on a 7nm process. This is the version that will be coming to India, while the Galaxy S10 in the US will ship with a Snapdragon 855 SoC. The Galaxy S10e will be offered in 6GB/128GB and 8GB/256 configurations, while the S10 will come in 6GB/128 and 8GB/512GB versions, and the S10+ will be offered in 6GB/128, 8GB/512GB and a whopping 12GB/1TB.
Both the Galaxy S10 and S10+ come with similar triple camera systems on the back that includes a 12MP f/2.4 telephoto lens, a 12MP wide-angle lens with Dual Aperture (f/1.5-2.4), and a 16MP ultra wide-angle f/2.2 sensor. The triple camera system supports Dual OIS and HDR10+ recording. The S10e loses out on the 12MP telephoto lens, but gets the same 12MP Dual Aperture and 16MP ultra-wide angle cameras.
As for the selfie camera, the Galaxy S10 and S10e will both offer a 10MP f/1.9 selfie camera housed in the punch hole display with support for Live Focus. The Galaxy S10+ gets a wider cutout to offer a 10MP f/1.9 main camera and a 8MP f/2.2 RGB depth camera with support for Live Focus. Camera features will include 10 scene optimizer settings, AR Emoji, stickers, live focus, zoom effect and more. The Galaxy S10 will also support 4K video recording via the selfie camera.
Lastly, the Galaxy S10e houses a 3,100mAh battery, the S10 gets a 3,400mAh battery and the S10+ offers a 4,100mAh capacity. The phones support Improved wireless charging speeds with Fast Wireless Charging 2.0. All three phones will ship with the latest One UI based on Android Pie. One UI offers a cleaner, minimalistic interface that is designed to make large phones easy to use with one hand. The new interface displays action buttons on the bottom half of the screen, while keeping the top half for headers and content. One UI also brings a system-wide dark mode, which is pretty great.
The Galaxy S10 trio will be offered in Prism White, Prism Black, Prism Green and Prism Blue colours. The S10e gets an additional Canary Yellow colour, while the S10+ top-tier model will be offered in Ceramic White and Ceramic Black colours.

Samsung Galaxy Buds, Galaxy Watch Active and Galaxy Fit

The new high efficiency chipset allows for 5 hours of playback on a single charge. The earbuds also get Bixby support. The Buds support wireless charging with the case and can be charged by placing it on the back of the S10.
The Galaxy Watch Active and Gear Fit fitness wearables. The former is a smartwatch that ditches the traditional rotating bezel. Samsung offers over 60,000 watch faces. The Gear Fit is a water resistant fitness band with a colour AMOLED display. Both the devices can auto-detect exercising and come with sleep tracking and heart-rate monitor.
