Samsung Galaxy S10 names officially confirmed, prepare to be astonished

We'll wait for the official S10 launch on the 20th to find out more about Wireless PowerShare and the Galaxy Buds, but for now colour us ever-so-slightly-disappointed-though-still-really-excited about the S10.

The Samsung Galaxy S10 range will launch next week during Samsung Unpacked in San Francisco, with a sister event taking place in London simultaneously.

Just like with previous Galaxy devices, Samsung is allowing customers to reserve the Galaxy S10 before it has even been announced. That, however, has not stopped the Galaxy S10 from leaking left, right, and center.


The spec sheet also reveals one interesting aspect of the Galaxy S10 series. The handset will feature the same design language and internal specs as its other two siblings but misses out on all the other new frills like an in-display fingerprint sensor, a higher resolution OLED panel, and more.

Across the board, all three models will be powered by an Exynos 9820 processor and it comes with at least 6GB of RAM.

The phones will be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 processor, while the global market variant, which will come to India as well, will have the Exynos 9820 processor on board.


The low-end version of Galaxy S10 series, that is S10 Lite, will have a dual rear camera setup of a 12MP wide lens with f/1.5 aperture clubbed with a 16MP ultra-wide lens with f/2.2 aperture. The handsets will also be capable of recording videos in 4K from the 10MP selfie camera at the front.

The Galaxy S10 will use a 6.1-inch display, but this time it'll boast a fingerprint sensor embedded into the screen.

However, a discovery by United Kingdom site Mobile Fun on the packaging of some official S10 cases has made that feature a lot less appealing - you'll probably have to take the case off to make it work properly. For the Galaxy S10e, it will get a side-mounted fingerprint sensor which doubles up as a power button. It is claimed that the Samsung Galaxy S10 may support 15W fast charging and 9W reverse wireless charging.
