Samsung has announced not one, not two, but three new Galaxy smartphones at its Samsung Galaxy Unpacked event. We have the base model Galaxy S10 and the top-tier Galaxy S10+. Alongside the two monster phones, the Korean tech giant also launched a relatively more affordable albeit a little pared down version for those looking to enjoy Samsung’s new Galaxy phone but on a tight budget. Meet the Samsung Galaxy S10e.
The youngest sibling of the Galaxy S10 bunch sports the same screen design as the base model–an Infinity Display with a hole-punch front camera. The difference is that the Galaxy S10e display is smaller at 5.8-inch with a maximum resolution of Full HD+. Camera-wise, this phone boasts a 12MP Wide + 16MP Ultra Wide rear set-up. In front is a Dual pixel 10MP shooter with auto-focus.
It runs Android 9.0 Pie as well and has the same 128GB internal storage, which is expandable up to 512GB. The Samsung Galaxy S10e comes with 6GB RAM; it’s lower than the one in the base model, but still powerful enough for demanding apps and tasks. Samsung also brought the battery capacity down to 3,100mAh, but retained the Fast Charging and Wireless Fast Charging 2.0 features available on all Galaxy S10 devices.
Boasting IP68 proofing, the Galaxy S10e brings in familiar tech and features. It has Bixby, Always-On Display, and Wireless PowerShare. The fingerprint scanner is placed at the side, instead of the usual rear configuration.
