Samsung Galaxy S10 5G Pricing For European Markets Revealed
The Samsung Galaxy S10 5G was unveiled by the Korean tech giant alongside its sibling Galaxy S10 series of flagship smartphones in the month of February 2019. However, unlike the Samsung Galaxy S10, Galaxy S10e and Galaxy S10+, the 5G capable variant was not available for purchase with the aforementioned trio. This version went on sale in South Korea much later in April 2019, and soon after went on sale in the UK and the US. According to a new report, the Samsung Galaxy S10 5G will also be launched in Europe shortly, carrying a price tag of EUR 1,249 (around Rs. 97,000).
The Galaxy S10 5G measures 162.6 x 77.1 x 7.94mm and weighs 198g. The design of the smartphone is reminiscent of the Galaxy S10+ with Gorilla Glass 6 on the front and Gorilla Glass 5 on the back. The display sports an Infinity-O, 6.7-inch Dynamic AMOLED panel with a resolution of 3040 x 1440 px. It has a pixel density of 505PPI and a 19:9 aspect ratio. Like its siblings the Galaxy S10 and Galaxy S10+, it features an ultrasonic in-display fingerprint scanner and has IP68 certification for water and dust resistance.
The Galaxy S10 5G features quad rear cameras, unlike the triple rear camera setup found in the Galaxy S10 and the Galaxy S10+. This camera setup includes a 12MP f/1.5-f/2.4 sensor, 12MP f/2.4 Telephoto sensor, 16MP f/2.2 Ultra-wide angle sensor; and a Time Of Flight (TOF) camera for 3D depth recording. The device has two cameras on the front, which are comprised of a 10MP f/1.9 sensor and a secondary TOF sensor to assist with background blur in photos and videos.
The Galaxy S10 5G runs on the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 SoC which is manufactured using the 7nm fabrication process. It has an Octa-core CPU and Adreno 640 GPU. The device features the Qualcomm X50 modem for 5G support. In terms of storage, it features 8GB of RAM and 256GB of onboard storage. There is no support for memory expansion via MicroSD.
The Galaxy S10 5G is powered by a 4,500mAh battery, larger than the 4100mAh present on the Galaxy S10+. The device supports 25W fast charging via the bottom mounted USB Type-C Port. Noteworthy, the premium smartphone also supports wireless charging. Like its siblings, it also has a reverse wireless charging feature.
Samsung with the Galaxy S10 5G’s introduction in the European market will ensure its place as one of the first OEMs to be prepared for the 5G wave. The higher bandwidth of networking is not new to the continent, but widespread implementation is still lacking. Hence, the smartphone manufacturer will be ready as the demand grows and the network matures into mainstream levels of consumption.
