Samsung announced the Samsung Galaxy S10 5G alongside the other flagship smartphones at its 2019 Unpacked event. The smartphone usurps every premium quality we’ve found in any Samsung Galaxy smartphone. As the name appears, the phone’s most prominent feature is the 5G network standard. Even so, asides the introduction of the 5G connectivity, there are stellar features like six cameras with the inclusion of 3D depth {ToF} cameras, humongous display, powerful battery and many more.

Design and Display

Naturally, you’ll expect the Samsung Galaxy S10 5G to have the same specifications and features as Samsung Galaxy S10 save the 5G network, but Samsung did a lot better.

Just a cursory glance at the phone gives you the comprehension that the phone is bigger and more sophisticated. An extensive study will make the above-mentioned statement more lucid.

Starting from the Galaxy S10e to the Galaxy S10 and Galaxy S10 Plus, Samsung kept a 0.3-inch difference in diagonal. This phone’s 6.7 inches screen makes it follow that same pattern and making it the largest of the pack. And then you’ll notice a sizeable pill-shaped camera module representing the Infinity-O design at the top right corner.

Its large diagonal is understandable given the improved features found on the smartphone. Sporting a 198g weight also justifies its loaded entities; if it were to be usual standards, the phone’s weight would have been bigger than that.

The 6.7-inch Dynamic AMOLED screen works with 1440 x 3040 pixels resolution. Features of its display include Corning Gorilla Glass 6 and the Always-On Display. There’s another Gorilla Glass 6 that protects the aluminium frame at the phone’s rear view. Another attraction at the rear is the crowded camera setup.

Battery

4,500 mAh battery, the highest capacity ever seen on a Samsung Galaxy S device is what powers the Galaxy S10 5G smartphone. There are no doubts about the strong battery life, but consistent usage of the 5G network might limit the extraordinary duration as 5G puts more constraints on power.

Like the rest of the bunch, it supports Fast Charging technology, Fast Wireless Charging 15W and the Wireless Powershare that converts the phone into a wireless power bank. However, its Fast Charging uses USB Power Delivery 3.0 to supply 25W that’s swifter than the others.

Camera

Honestly, the phone’s cameras look more than six to a regular Joe. However, in the real sense, the cameras are only two at the front and four at the back. Why it might seem confusing is because of the ToF / 3D depth sensing camera which I’ll explain later on in this segment.

At the front, there’s the 10MP primary sensor with f/1.9 aperture and the ToF camera, where the ToF camera replaces the 8MP depth sensor in Galaxy S10 Plus. Turning to the back, you’ll find the 12MP main shooter, a 12MP telephoto lens with 2x optical zoom, 16MP ultra-wide sensor and the 3D depth camera as well as the dual-LED flash.

3D depth camera

Otherwise known as ToF (Time of Flight) camera, the 3D depth sensor calculates the distance between the camera and an object during an action, and creating a 3D information about it.

It adds adequate depth data to portrait images and provides support for AR and VR applications. Also, it opens the avenue for tools like Video Live Focus and Quick Measure.

Samsung is making use of two sensors for the ToF camera on each side of the smartphone; that’s why the cameras appear to be more than six. One’s an emitter while the other’s a receiver that utilises Stereo Vision.

Hardware and Software

Snapdragon 855 or Exynos 9820 is what you get as the chipset of the smartphone. For the Snapdragon variant, octa-core 2.8GHz CPU handles efficiency while Adreno 640 GPU sorts our graphics delivery. The Exynos counterpart implements octa-core 2.7GHz CPU and Mali-G76 MP12.

Regarding the memory compartment, only 8GB RAM and 256GB non-expandable storage is what the device offers. In other words, you can’t increase the storage capacity of the smartphone. Meanwhile, the software on this piece is Android 9.0 Pie OS coupled with One UI.

Connectivity and Security

With the Snapdragon X50 modem aboard, the device delivers the highly anticipated 5G connectivity. Network tests have shown that the 5G network can download a file of 10GB in 30 seconds. The phone supports 5G non-stand alone (NSA) with Sub6 and millimeter wave (mmWave) 5G bands.

Wi-Fi 6, 2G, 3G, 4G LTE, USB-C 3.1, NFC, Wi-Fi Hotspot, and Bluetooth 5.0 are the other connectivity gradients.

Although the phone’s front camera serves 2D Face Unlock, that’s not the best form of security the phone offers – the ultrasonic fingerprint reader is. And it is found underneath the display in the lower third portion.
