Samsung unveiled three brand new smartphones at the Galaxy Unpacked event in February.
“To those who say they’ve seen it all, I say, buckle your seatbelt, the future is about to begin,” declared Samsung Head of Mobile Business DJ Koh.
From 5G-ready smartphones to six cameras and technology that remembers your daily habits, Samsung has unveiled a range of phones that take a huge step towards the next generation.
The South Korean company revealed the world’s first-ever foldable phone, the Galaxy Fold, which arguably stole the show, however the highly-anticipated S10 range was also unveiled to huge acclaim.
Galaxy S10 range – the best yet?
Samsung faced some criticism for its S9 range with experts saying the range wasn’t different enough from its S8 predecessor. However, it’s ensured those mistakes won’t be repeated and instead revealed an S10 range jam-packed with advanced features encased in stunning designs.
Proving that size is everything, Samsung released three sizes of the S10; the 5.8-inch S10e, the 6.1-inch S10, and the 6.4-inch S10+.
The S10 5G option is also the first mainstream device to run on lightning-fast 5G wireless networks, a network which is due to start being rolled out across the globe later this year.
Rival Apple isn’t expected to have a 5G-ready phone until the end of 2020, showing Samsung is way ahead of the game.
As well as next-generation connectivity, the new look devices feature large, curved WQHD+ Infinity-O displays, enabling users to get more done and giving them an uninterrupted viewing experience.
Sitting under the screen is an ultrasonic fingerprint scanner, promising more security. The less expensive S10e isn’t left behind either as the fingerprint sensor is installed on the side of the device. All of the devices also include the manufacturer’s defence-grade security platform, Samsung Knox.
For those needing to take photos of documents or shots on location, camera quality is a high priority, so it’s no surprise that Samsung didn’t scrimp on its image-capturing technology.
The Galaxy S10+ offers two front-facing cameras, which enable users to capture incredible 4K UHD videos for the first time. Add to that the triple rear cameras equipped, including an ultra-wide lens, and it’s safe to say Samsung has upped its camera game.
A phone that knows you
If that wasn’t enough, the new S10 range can learn its user’s habits. For example, if in a morning you look at the weather and open up your emails, the phone’s memory will pre-load those apps in the background, saving you load time. Not only that, but it’ll close them when you’re done which Samsung claims will extend the battery life to 24 hours on one single charge.
An innovative new feature on the battery, called Wireless PowerShare, also means that the S10 devices can charge another Samsung smartphone by simply laying it across the top of it. It’s almost guaranteed to make S10 users the most popular amongst their colleagues who’re struggling with 2% battery; the S10 will automatically stop lending a hand when its own power drops below 30%.
Amongst all the nifty features of the S10 range and the jaw-dropping technology of the Galaxy Fold, Samsung also announced its wireless Galaxy Buds headphones.
