I recently headed up to SkyAvenue in Genting Highlands on 1 March 2019 for the unveiling of the 10th instalment of the Samsung Galaxy S series, the Galaxy S10 by Samsung Malaysia Electronics. To be honest, I was rather excited about this as I was right there at the launch of the Samsung Galaxy S1 a decade ago (still trying to dig up the old photos and I’ll publish them here if I manage to find them).

The Galaxy S10 line comes in four (4) different models engineered to meet the distinct needs of today’s smartphone market, with the aim of delivering a next-generation experience and groundbreaking innovations in display, camera and performance.

The Galaxy S10 was designed for those who want a premium flagship smartphone with powerful performance, and the new models feature Samsung’s all-new Dynamic AMOLED display, next-generation camera, intelligent performance, and more.

“The past decade has been illustrious for us – we have revolutionised the smartphone landscape by reinventing the device we hold firm in our palms and close to our hearts. We introduced many of the world’s firsts and what was once unimaginable, is now the norm. But we are far from resting on our laurels. Today, you will see that we have created a new standard for all of you who desire and expect more from your mobile companion. The Galaxy S10 is constructed with pragmatic intelligence and crafted to design perfection so people can unlock their potential and experience the world like never before. This is a very special year for us at Samsung because this is our tenth year of relentless innovation to bring you, the people, the next-generation smartphone,” said Yoonsoo Kim, President of Samsung Malaysia Electronics.

The Galaxy S10 is made with Samsung’s best screen yet, the world’s first Dynamic AMOLED display. As the first HDR10+-certified smartphone, the display delivers vivid digital content, and with dynamic tone mapping, users see a wider range of colour for brilliant, realistic pictures. Galaxy S10’s Dynamic AMOLED display is also VDE-certified for vibrant bright colours and superior contrast ratio for deeper blacks and brighter whites.

Verified by DisplayMate, users will also enjoy highly accurate colours on the phone even in harsh sunlight. The Dynamic AMOLED display also reduces blue light through its TÜV Rheinland-certified Eye Comfort display without compromising picture quality or adding a filter.

The Galaxy S10’s unique Infinity-O Display packs an array of sensors and camera technology into a hole-in display. The Dynamic AMOLED display also includes the first-ever in-display Ultrasonic Fingerprint Scanner that reads the 3D contours of the user’s physical thumbprint – not a 2D image of it – for improved security. With the world’s first FIDO Alliance Biometric Component certification, this next generation biometrics authentication offers vault-like security.

Camera

The Galaxy S10 introduces new camera technology and advanced intelligence that leveraged on Samsung’s Dual Pixel and Dual Aperture technology:

  • Ultra Wide Lens: A first for the S Series, Galaxy S10 offers an Ultra Wide Lens with a 123-degree field of view, like the human eye, so what users see is what’s in frame. This mode is suitable for wide landscape shots, big panoramas and even fitting the entire extended family into the photo.
  • Super Steady & High-Quality Video Recording: Galaxy S10 offers Super Steady recording with digital stabilization technology. Both front and rear cameras can shoot in up to UHD quality, and in an industry first, the rear camera gives users the flexibility to record in HDR10+.
  • AI Camera: Galaxy S10 makes already smart features more accurate with a Neural Processing Unit (NPU) so users can get pro-grade shots without having to manually select any advanced camera settings. Scene Optimizer can now recognize and more accurately process additional scenes because of the NPU. And with Shot Suggestion, Galaxy S10 offers automatic composition recommendations which will help amateur photographers compose their photos better.

 

Galaxy S10 is built with premium hardware and machine-learning-based software making it Samsung’s most intelligent device to date:

  • Wireless PowerShare: Samsung introduces Wireless PowerShare on Galaxy S10, making it possible to easily charge Qi-certified smartphones and even compatible wearable devices. In addition, Galaxy S10 is capable of charging itself and a second device simultaneously via Wireless PowerShare, while connected to a regular charger, enabling users to leave their second charger at home while on a trip.
  • Intelligent Performance: The new AI software on the Galaxy S10 automatically optimizes battery, CPU, RAM, and even device temperature based on use, and continues to learn and improve over time. Leveraging AI-capabilities, Galaxy S10 also learns how to launch most frequently used apps faster.
  • Intelligent Wi-Fi: Galaxy S10 comes with Intelligent Wi-Fi that allows for an uninterrupted and safe connection by seamlessly switching between Wi-Fi and LTE, as well as alerting users of potentially risky Wi-Fi. Galaxy S10 also supports the new Wi-Fi 6 standard.
  • Bixby Routines: On Galaxy S10, Bixby automates routines and provides personalized recommendations to make life easier. With pre-set and personalized routines, such as Driving and Before Bed routines, which are customized based on the user’s habits, Galaxy S10 makes things simpler by automatically reducing device touches.

 

The Galaxy S10 line offers Fast Wireless Charging 2.0, IP68 water and dust resistance, a next-generation processor and Samsung services like Bixby, Samsung Health, Samsung Pay and Samsung DeX. Users will also get the largest storage capacity available on a Galaxy device – the S10+ even comes with 512GB (and up to 1TB but Samsung Malaysia is not bringing in this model) of built-in storage, and the ability to add an additional 512GB microSD card.

  • Speed: Galaxy S10 provides the capability to access next-generation Wi-Fi 6, which gives prioritized and four times faster access over other users in crowded areas, like an airport. Experience lightning fast LTE for downloading and browsing capable of up to 2.0 Gbps for the first time ever.
  • Gaming: Galaxy S10 is built with AI-based on-device gaming performance optimization software and premium hardware including Dolby Atmos for gaming mode and a vapor chamber cooling system. Galaxy S10 is also the first mobile device to be optimized for games created on the Unity platform.
  • Security: Galaxy S10 is built with defense-grade Samsung Knox, as well as a secure storage backed by hardware, which houses user’s private keys for blockchain-enabled mobile services.

 

Galaxy S10, Galaxy S10+ and Galaxy S10e will be available in Prism White, Prism Black, and Prism Green. Galaxy S10+ will also be available in two, all-new, premium Ceramic models: Ceramic Black and Ceramic White.

The Galaxy S10e, Galaxy S10 and Galaxy S10+ (128GB) are priced at RM2,699, RM3,299 and RM3,699 respectively. The top of the line S10+ in Malaysia (which comes with 512GB memory) retails at RM4,599
