  • Potential Specs Before the S10’s Official Reveal


    Even before Samsung announced that they would reveal the specs for the different variants of their new Samsung Galaxy S10 on 20 February, the internet has been in a frenzy as to what those specs might be.

    Rumours, leaks, and the like, have spread across various social media platforms, and while we don’t really know anything different, the geeky side of us know that some of the rumours and leaks have a high potential of being true. So, we are going to round up several of those potential specs, prices, and more, just so you can have an idea of what to expect.


    S10 Variants

    We are used to seeing the S10 coming in two variants, the S10 and the S10+. This year, Samsung is likely to be going more diverse with its selection, not that there will be a super budget phone among them, but at least one that is expected to be marginally less expensive.

    From the rumours and leaks, the S10 is expected to come in 3 versions; the S10(E), S10, and the S10+. The S10(E) is rumoured to be the cheapest option of all variants. We are not sure of them branding it as an ‘E’ model yet, but we are quite sure they wouldn’t want to name it the S10 Lite, since it is not really cheap when priced at around $750 (Lite often refers to cheap, and they wouldn’t want to associate that with their flagship phone). Different leaks agreed that the S10E will host 6GB RAM and 128GB of internal storage.

    On the other hand, the tech geeks’ gossip about the regular S10 include it coming in two versions: one assumed to be priced around $1000 for 6GB RAM and 128GB storage; and another at $1,300 for 8GB RAM and 512GB storage. The most expensive model that is the S10+, is expected to come in three variants: 6GB RAM + 128GB; 8GB + 512GB, and a whopping 12GB + 1TB model; they will cost $1180, $1450, and $1,800 respectively.


    The big changes?

    You might be asking by now, why would you pay this much for a new phone? If you’re not an early adopter, or a tech geek, there is no reason for you to do that unless you are swimming in a pool of money. However, if you are a true tech geek, you’ll appreciate the changes they have made and might even consider spending all your savings to buy one (if you have any).

    In-display fingerprint scanner

    For starters, instead of removing it all together like Apple did, or putting it on the back, the in-display fingerprint scanner will be in the screen itself. Several manufacturers have adopted the technology before Samsung, but the fingerprint sensors of other phones are either slower than the regular ones or inefficient. Fingers crossed, Samsung will do better. This technology is rumoured to be available in only the regular S10 and s10+. The S10E will have one on the lock button on the right.


    There will be a triple rear camera setup on each variant (except for the S10E); 12-megapixel main camera, a 16-megapixel super wide-angle lens, and another 13-megapixel lens, according to standard.co.uk. Also, there will be a dual front camera setup on the S10+. To achieve that bezel-less look, they are going with a hole-punch in the display for the front cameras, instead of a trendy, awful, and downright disgusting notch.


    Confirmed specs: 3000 mAh (S10E), 3300 mAh (S10, 300 mAh upgrade from the S9), and 4000 mAh (S10+, a 500 mAh upgrade from the S9+).


    The latest Snapdragon 855 processor or the Exynos 8920; depends on the country you are buying the phone from.


    Headphone jack remains.

    We’ll keep you updated folks, and we might even get to see the phone before anyone else does in Cairo, so stay tuned!
