Samsung Galaxy S10, S10+, S10E: finally!

Samsung Galaxy S10, S10+, S10E: finally!

Samsung did not hold back this year with a Fold version too!

Although it was preceded by a vast amount of leaks and early imagery, this year’s Unpacked was definitely an eventful one with lots more devices coming from Samsung. Let’s do a rundown with the first impressions for these new offerings.

Samsung Galaxy S10

Yep, the South Korean tech-giant took it up a notch by adding the Galaxy S10e this year (guessing as a nod to the iPhone XR) and we were treated to an intro for the new Galaxy Fold too.


First off, here’s a rundown of specs for the 4 smartphones:


Device Screen Colors (in the US) Price
Galaxy S10 (LTE) 6.1-in curved Quad HD+ AMOLED

(Infinity-O Display)

Prism White, Prism Black, Flamingo Pink, Prism Blue Starts at $899
Galaxy S10 (5G) 6.7-in Dynamic AMOLED (still to be announced… available end of April)
Galaxy S10+ 6.4-in curved Quad AMOLED

(Infinity-O Display)

Prism White, Prism Black, Flamingo Pink, Prism Blue, Ceramic White, Ceramic Black Starts at $999
Galaxy S10E 5.8-in flat Full HD+ AMOLED Prism White, Prism Black, Prism Green, Prism Blue, Flamingo Pink Starts at $749
Galaxy Fold 4.6-in display that takes up about 3/4ths of the frontWhen opened 7.3-in tablet Cosmo Black, Space Silver, Martian Green, Astro Blue Starts at $1,980

Samsung Galaxy S10 Plus

After a long period of “will they or won’t they”, the Galaxy S10 and S10+ will in fact be the first mobile devices from Samsung to feature an Ultrasonic Fingerprint Scanner from Qualcomm behind the display, while the Galaxy S10e can be unlocked with a Capacitive Fingerprint Sensor on the side button.

Now for the hands on/first impression reviews:


  • Sam Rutherford from Gizmodo sees the GS10 as packed with hard to find mobile tech as Wi-Fi 6 and a new take on the notched selfie cam compared to its predecessor and in the US. Being the first Samsung device powered by the new Snapdragon 855 chipset was also impressive. Meanwhile, the Galaxy 10E can be the phone for those who want a non-curved screen without breaking the bank. Plus, one of the very few who does not have a notch but instead have an Infinity-O hole giving more screen surface usage.
  • Matt Swider of of Tech Radar sees the high 93.1% screen-to-body ratio and in-screen fingerprint sensor is definitely a pro in the Galaxy S10. The painful part is the price and (for the non-Bixby fans), there’s still the Bixby button unfortunately. Initially the same with the S10 Plus sentiments.
  • CNET’s Jessica Dolcourt immediately noticed the S10 Plus as very slippery to the point it fell landing on her purse or lap (yikes). While the Infinity-O display blends with the large screen with slim bezels.
