The Samsung Galaxy S10 5G is a highly anticipated phone and it has now been launched in South Korea, after the 5G network arrived in the country. A couple of users had a chance to test it, and it appears that the phone is packing a couple of surprises. Let’s take a closer look.
If we start with the design of the phone, there don’t appear to be many differences compared to the previous models at first. The first thing that we notice is the 5G logo that appears on its back. However, this isn’t the only difference. We can also notice that the display is larger, and the Galaxy S10 comes with a 6.7” screen, which makes it 20 percent larger than the one of its predecessor.
The phone comes with a new battery as well. The 4500 mAh was needed, as the 5G needs more power. We also know that the charging rate was increased from 25W to 15W. The smartphone will also come with one extra rear camera. This one is a Time Of Flight (TOF) depth sensor and it will be really helpful when it comes to augmented reality, as well as photos taken with low light and background blur. We can also observe similar features for the front camera, where an upgraded TOF depth sensor was added. We already know that Time Of Flights sensors are effective, as the Huawei P30 Pro uses them as well.
The Galaxy S10 also has Universal Flash Storage, which allows it to double the speed of storage compared to the S10 which had an UFS 2.1. According to Samsung, the phone reached up to 410MB/s write speeds and 2,100MB/s read speeds. The phone will be available in three colors: white, black and gold.
