“The Samsung Galaxy S10 builds on the incredible legacy of the Galaxy S series, which has delivered the best mobile experiences to consumers in the past decade,” says James Jung, President of Samsung Philippines. “Delivering the most advanced display, camera, and performance innovations, the Galaxy S10 is perfect for the next generation user who desires to make a difference. Looking ahead, we envision the Galaxy S10 as the pioneering device that will catapult Samsung toward another decade of groundbreaking smartphone technology.”

Some of the features for the Galaxy S10 series are:

  • Infinity-O Display which comes in three variants: 5.8-inch display for the Galaxy S10e, a 6.1-inch display for the Galaxy S10, and a 6.4-inch display for the Galaxy S10+.
  • World’s first Dynamic AMOLED Display, delivering amazing visibility and vivid visuals under any lighting condition. It’s the first HDR 10+ certified device with Dynamic Tone Mapping, the Galaxy S10 generates a wider and more accurate range of colors, even in the darkest of scenes. The screen remains pleasing to the eyes, as the smartphone already reduces blue light emissions by 41% even before activating the Blue Light Filter.
  • The Galaxy S10’s True Vision Multi-Camera combines a full array of lenses in one powerful device. The Galaxy S10e has a dual camera set-up, utilizing a 12 MP Wide Dual Aperture Lens and a 16MP Ultra-Wide Lens — a first for the S series. The Galaxy S10+ and the S10 sport three rear cameras, adding the 12 MP Telephoto lens for zoom.
  • For Galaxy S10, it has a Pro Camcorder which offers Super Steady & High-Quality Video Recording. This allows users to take dynamic action videos with minimal shakiness. Both front and rear cameras can shoot in up-to UHD quality, and in an industry first, the rear camera provides the flexibility to record in HDR10+.
  • To ensure maximum phone security, the Galaxy S10 & Galaxy S10+ use the first-ever embedded Ultrasonic Fingerprint Scanner that reads the 3D contours of a physical thumbprint – not a 2D image of it – for improved anti-spoofing. The feature detects every unique nuance of a fingerprint, even with changes in humidity, sunlight, or ambient temperature, offering vault-like security to keep the device safe.
  • The Galaxy S10 also offers the largest storage capacity available on a Galaxy device, with 1TB of built-in storage expandable up to 1.5TB on the limited-edition Galaxy S10+ variant. The base models of the Galaxy S10+ and Galaxy S10 carry 8GB RAM and 128GB storage, while the Galaxy S10e supports 6GB RAM and internal memory of 128GB.
  • It also sports a wider battery capacity than the previous Galaxy variants: 4,100 mAh for the Galaxy S10+, 3,400 mAh for the Galaxy S10, and 3,100 mAh for the Galaxy S10e.
  • They introduce the Wireless PowerShare feature on the Galaxy S10, allowing the charging of Qi-certified smartphones by simply placing them against the flagship smartphone.  As an industry-first, the Galaxy S10’s Wireless PowerShare will also charge compatible wearables, such as the Galaxy Watch and Galaxy Buds. This allows on-the-go users to avoid the hassle of looking for sockets to charge their devices.
