SAMSUNG S10 SERIES: What you need to know about the new beasts

SAMSUNG has officially shown off its Galaxy S10 line-up, which includes the Galaxy S10, S10+ and S10e.

The Samsung Galaxy S10 marks a decade of Galaxy S phones, and while there’s been little innovation in recent years from the most popular smartphone brands, including Samsung (Bixby and AR EMoji don’t cut it), the S10 has enough newness to tempt you to upgrade. The S10 is already shaping up to be one of 2019’s best smartphones.

The top of the line Galaxy S10 and S10+ offer a significant upgrade over their predecessors, with in-display fingerprint sensors, rear-mounted triple camera setups and reverse wireless charging support. The Galaxy S10e, on the other hand, marks the first time Samsung has added an “affordable” model to its flagship Samsung Galaxy S lineup, as it follows in the footsteps of Apple’s iPhone XR.

The phones are available in three colours: prism white, prism green and prism black.

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. In the US, Galaxy S10 pre-order started on February 21.

Samsung also unveiled the Galaxy S10 5G during its 20 February Unpacked event, but this won’t be available until June.
