As part of the Galaxy S series’ 10-year anniversary, Samsung has unveiled the Galaxy S10, the Galaxy S10 Plus, and the Galaxy S10e for us to adore:
The Samsung Galaxy S10 has a couple of highlights I would like to focus on; first is the equipment of the Infinity-O AMOLED display rated at 6.1-inch, supporting HDR 10+ and really thin bezels.
The second highlight is the presence of the Ultrasonic in-display fingerprint scanner, making the smartphone the company’s first to come with one.

The camera department acts as another highlight, comprising of three cameras at the back (12MP wide-angle lens, 16MP ultra wide-angle lens, and 12MP telephoto lens) featuring Dual Pixel, OIS, Dual aperture and LED flash. Upfront, there is a 10MP snapper with dual pixel and 4K UHD video recording. The Galaxy S10 also supports various AI-enabled features for improved photography.
