At the latest Samsung's Unpacked in San Francisco, California, Samsung went all out for their 10th anniversary. The South Korean tech company, announced a new line of flagship models, smartwatches and accessories. At a press event, we weren't able to get our grubby mitts on the Galaxy Fold—the clamshell phone uses the company's proprietary foldable screen—because… well, it wasn't available at the time. But, we did have a gander at the Galaxy S10 line-up. Here are three takeaways of the S10.
There's an upgrade in camera features from the last model. The Galaxy S10+ has five lenses (three back cameras: 12MP telephoto, 12MP wide-angle, 16MP ultra wide; two front cameras: 10MP selfie and 8MP RGB depth); the S10 has four lenses (sans RGB Depth lens) and the S10e has three (sans RGB depth and telephoto lenses).
This model introduces the 'Infinity-O' display. This is Samsung’s answer to Apple's notch: the front-facing cameras are now placed in the top right corner of the phone. The fingerprint sensor is now in the front. You can't see it but it's located in the lower half of the device. The screen is brighter thanks to its inaugural 'Dynamic AMOLED' display; colours are accurate. Phones are also thinner.
There's a rehaul with the OS. Called One UI, the redesigned operating system wants to make using the S10 easier to use—from transferring data from your old phone to altering how you want your notifications to be.
The Samsung Galaxy S10 line (128GB) will be available in Prism White, Prism Black and Prism Green. The Galaxy S10+ (512GB and 1TB) will be available in Ceramic White and Ceramic Black. Preorders for the Galaxy S10 (128GB) and Galaxy S10+ (128GB, 512GB, 1TB) begins today, 22 February 2019, at 12pm.
