The biggest news from Samsung’s Galaxy S10 event
Samsung’s 2019 Galaxy Unpacked event was… well, packed. Excuse the cheeky wordplay, but the company introduced four variants of the Galaxy S10 smartphone today. And that’s not to mention the wild, aspirational and incredibly expensive Galaxy Fold, plus some new wearable products to boot. There’s a lot to break down among the bevy of announcements, so join us as we tackle the most important news from Samsung’s big day.
To no one’s surprise, the Galaxy S10’s centerpiece is an Infinity-O AMOLED display that covers virtually the entire front of the device, using a cutout to include the front selfie camera. However, the displays you’ll get vary widely. The standard S10 and the S10+ carry 6.1- and 6.4-inch curved Quad HD+ screens with an in-screen fingerprint reader while the S10 5G packs a gargantuan 6.7-inch panel.
Your camera selection varies as well. The S10 and S10+ tout a 12-megapixel variable-aperture (f/1.5 and f/2.4) main rear camera, a 16-megapixel ultra-wide f/2.2 camera, a 12MP f/2.4 telephoto cam and a 10-megapixel front shooter. Spring for the larger S10+ and S10 5G and you’ll get a front depth camera for better portrait shots.
