This year's first Samsung Unpacked event brings some major changes to Samsung's flagship handle – from screens to cameras and fingerprint readers. There are many new things in the S10 series. There is even a new phone.
Before we get into the details of each, let's take a closer look at the four handsets themselves:
- Galaxy S1
- Galaxy S10 Plus: The big boy in the bundle, with a big ol '6.4 inch panel.
- Galaxy S10 5G : Galaxy S10 with 5G connection … and a larger screen, more cameras and other candies.
- Galaxy S10E: Newcomer to the S family and the most affordable of the trio. It is also the smallest and offers a 5.8-inch screen.
Oh, and right out of the gate: All four phones have headphone jacks.
But now we'll talk about all the candies in each.
Galaxy S10 and S10 Plus
S10, the smaller of the two flagship hands. It has a 6.1-inch screen with a display resolution of 3040 × 1440 and Samsung's "Infinity O" hole dance display instead of a blur. S10 Plus is quite identical, but it does support the screen size up to 6.4 inches. The O-cut is super clean and gives some of the smallest features we've seen in a phone like this one.
The monitor is also the first from Samsung to unpack a fingerprint reader and move the reader from the back from the phone to the front. Funny, the development of the fingerprint reader in Samsung phones was: in the home button (on the front), on the back and backwards (in the display). Everything old is new again!
Moving the fingerprint reader from the back of the phone has opened the door to a trio of new cameras, which is the first for the S series (last year's S9 Plus had dual rear shots, while the smaller S9 variant got stuck with a). The three cameras offer a 12 MP telephoto lens, a 12 MP wide-angle lens and a 16 MP ultra-wide lens.
Under the hood, S10 drives the Qualcomm's latest Snapdragon 855 processor, and there are two variants of these small S10s: 6GB / 128GB and 8GB / 512GB options. S10 Plus will refrain from the less 6 GB / 128 GB option and instead add an even larger choice: 12 GB / 1 TB. Lots of RAM, lots of storage.
On the back of the phones there is also "reverse wireless charging" (along with, you know, regular wireless charging) that will let Users use the phone as a wireless charging plate , mainly for the new Galaxy Buds. It's pretty neat, I guess.
The entry model S10 starts from $ 899, while S10 Plus starts at $ 999. Pre-orders start tomorrow, February 21, and shipped on March 8.
Galaxy S10 5G
2019 will be the first year that is commercially available 5G phones beat business shelves and you think Samsung will not leave the money on the table. So of course it did a 5G version of S10. It's not just a S10 with 5G connection. It's a completely different phone.
S10 5G has a massive 6.7-inch screen, making it even larger than S10 Plus. On the opposite side of that coin, however, it covers 8 GB of RAM and 256 GB of storage space (only the options available) and no SD card slot, which is different from Samsung. It also has the largest battery of all phones announced today at 4,500 mAh, but I'm sure the 5G radio is a battery vacuum so I'm sure it was justified.
For the rear cameras on the S10 5G, you do not get three on this phone, but four . It has all the same cameras as the regular S10 / S10 Plus and a 3D deep camera. It adds one of those on the front as well (so it has three on the front of four in the year). So many cameras. So many.
S10 5G will debut exclusively at Verizon but will be coming to other carriers sometime after its launch. We are saying that we only know that it will be available in the first half of 2019, but that is the extent of it. Not that it really matters, because you shouldn't worry about buying a 5G phone this year.
And so they did not announce the price. Surely it is less than $ 1980, but at least there is.
For the first time, Samsung offers a more affordable version of a Galaxy S phone with 10E. This is basically a somewhat stupid, cheaper version of S10 that is still the best choice for most users (just like the iPhone XR is the best iPhone for most iPhone users).
S10E is the smallest of the three phones, with a much more manageable 5.8-inch screen. The panel also runs at a small resolution of 2280 × 1080 the same as the current Galaxy S9's default setting. Although it has a smaller, smaller than display, it is still clean and elegant in punching, but it does not have the same swirled edge-to-edge appearance as its larger siblings.
Samsung also unprotected the fingerprint reader in the S10E display, but also avoids putting the reader on the back of the phone – you find it clean in the power switch, which would make a very intuitive unlocking process.  As for the cameras, you get a pair of 10E (as opposed to a trio on the regular S10 models), which should be very similar to the current shooters on the back of the S9 Plus. It's a good deal. The front packs a 10MP lens shooter.
And for internal players, S10E gets the same options as the smaller S10: a Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 processor and either 6GB / 128GB or 8GB / 256GB. 
Further competing with the iPhone XR, the S10E starts at $ 750 with pre-orders starting tomorrow, February 21, and a ship date on March 8.
