It’s been the talk that has filled the tech world, how Samsung brought in their 10th edition of the Galaxy S line of phones with a bang. Continuing to expand their line of devices to try and cover the needs of more and more customers. With phones that fit in several price points, a pair of earbuds, a watch, and something more. With Apple continuing to be in their crosshairs, they are looking to continue their dominance of the tech world.
Starting with the Galaxy S10, which is a 6.1 inch AMOLED Infinity-O display, 10MP Selfie Cam, 3 rear facing cameras (12MP telephoto, 12MP wide angle, and 16MP ultra wide), 3400mAh battery, starting at 8GB of Ram with 128GB internal storage for the base model, and 8GB of Ram with 512GB internal storage for the topped out model. And you will be able to get them in Prism Black, Prism White, Prism Green, and Prism Blue. And the price for the S10 will start at $899 for the base model and $1149 for the topped out model.
For those wanting something a little bigger they can snag the Samsung Galaxy S10+. The S10+ will have a slightly larger display at 6.4 inch AMOLED Infinity-O display, two selfie cams (one selfie other for depth), the same 3 rear cameras on the S10 (12MP telephoto, 12MP wide angle, and 16MP ultra wide), 4100mAh battery, 8GB of Ram with 128GB of storage for the base model, 8GB of Ram with 512GB for the mid model, and 12GB of Ram with 1TB of storage for the bossed out ceramic version. The starting price will be $999 for the base, $1249.99 for the mid model, and $159.99 for the bossed out ceramic version. Like the S10, the S10+ will come in Prism Black, Prism White, Prism Green, and Prism Blue, and the bossed out ceramic phones will come in ceramic black and ceramic white.
An addition that will come with both the S10 and S10+ will be the Ultrasonic Fingerprint Sensor that is basically an in-display reader. But unlike the one on the (favored) One Plus 6t, it is more accurate, can work with the display off, and will not shine a bright annoying light while unlocking, making this (possibly) the in-display fingerprint scanner to beat.
If those phones are too expensive, check out the S10e. This phone is meant to compete with the iPhone XR, as there are a number of customers wanting to buy in, but just not ready to drop a grand on a new phone. So if that is you here are the specs for the S10e. As far as display, you are looking at 5.8 in display, but unlike the S10 and S10+, that will not be the infinity display, but will have a little more bezel. It will have one selfie cam, 2 rear (12MP wide angle and 16MP ultra wide), the fingerprint scanner is in the power button (versus in-display), have a 3100 mAh battery, 6GB of Ram with 128GB of internal storage for the base model and 8GB of Ram with 256GB of internal Ram for the maxed out model. And you will be able to get the phones in Prism Black, Prism White, Prism Green, Prism Blue, and Canary Yellow. Customers will be able to buy the S10e for $749.99 for the base model and $849.99 for the maxed out model.
Along with unveiling phones, Samsung dropped a pair of Galaxy buds (meant to compete with the Apple Airpods) that can be reversed wirelessly charged using the Galaxy S10 phones. They also announced the Galaxy Watch Active, Galaxy Fit (designed to compete with the Fitbit), and the Galaxy Fold.
Samsung was on a mission Wednesday, and that mission was setting the standard for tech. They are preparing for the future with devices that may be the new standard (Galaxy Fold) as well as ushering in the 5G excitement with a few phones of their own (Galaxy S10 5G version). If ever there was a way to kick off the year of tech, Samsung has done it. Now to see how the other companies respond
