While the recently released Galaxy Trio Phones are Samsung’s mainstream flagships, the Samsung Galaxy S10 5G is the most advanced smartphone you are yet to see. Do not just look at the name, it is more than a Galaxy S10 with 5G stacked on it. To give you starting hint, this is by far the largest Samsung flagship which is even greater than the Galaxy Note9. Now let me show you some of its features.
Samsung Galaxy S10 5G Features
The Samsung Galaxy S10 5G comes with a 6.7 inch curved Dynamic AMOLED display with 1440p+ resolution. This is among the first mobile displays to support HDR10+ video (along with the other three S10 phones), and one of the first to feature an ultrasonic fingerprint reader.
Going by the name, this is Samsung’s first 5G phone having support for both mmWave and sub-6GHz networks. Wi-Fi 6 is also on board for symmetrical 1.2Gbps local connections.
Interestingly, the Samsung Galaxy S10 5G will come with either a Snapdragon 855 or an Exynos 9820 chipset, depending on your region. The chipset will be paired with an 8GB RAM and 256GB internal storage. The sad news is that there is no microSD card slot for storage expansion.
The Samsung Galaxy S10 5G camera department is an enhanced version of what the S10 phones came with – both front and back assemblies gain a 3D Time of Flight module, which enables Video Live focus and capturing 3D images. This means the back has a quad camera with dual OIS. The main shooter is a 12MP sensor with Dual Pixel AF and dual aperture (f/1.5 and f/2.4). It’s joined by the 12MP 2x telephoto camera, these are the two with OIS. Then there’s the 16MP 123° ultra-wide camera.
The back camera has the capacity to record 4K HDR10+ videos for you to enjoy on the expansive screen. The selfie camera has a 10MP sensor capable of 4K video capture (the pill-shaped hole is wider to accommodate for the 3D ToF sensor).
The Samsung Galaxy S10 5G will be coming with a rather large 4500mAh battery, and it is the first to support Super Fast Charging which goes up to 25W (this is compatible with USB Power Delivery 3.0). There’s also Fast Wireless Charging 2.0 and Wireless PowerShare (which turns the phone into a wireless power bank to use with wearables and other phones).
The Samsung Galaxy S10 5G has IP68 rating for water and dust resistance. It comes with Dolby Atnos-enabled stereo speakers, Samsung DeX support and the usual set of Samsung flagship features. If you think the S10 was the bomb, then wait till you lay your hands on the 5G model. The Samsung Galaxy S10 5G will be released into the market during spring and there are no words on pricing yet.
