Design and Display of the Samsung Galaxy S10+
Samsung Galaxy S10+ establishes an upgraded version of the Infinity-O design due to the dual selfie camera sensors at its top right. Instead of taking the O shape like the Galaxy S10, the cutout takes the form of a pill. Nonetheless, it’s still called the Infinity-O display.
How this new design impacts the phone’s appearance is evident in the top and bottom reduced bezels. Physical buttons are arranged at the right and left sides of the smartphone. Volume buttons and the Bixby button are placed at the left side while the power button stays at the right.
Samsung’s inclusion of the Bixby button is questionable to an extent. Since the AI (that is Bixby) can be called to action through voice activation, a dedicated button seems unneeded.
On a few occasions, the Bixby button is mistaken for the volume controller. In such cases, an attempt to reduce volume could see you prompting Bixby. Well, a little more attention should mitigate such occurrences.
To unlock the smartphone, you don’t have to move your index finger to the back anymore; instead you’ll only place your thumb at the lower third of the smartphone’s screen. That’s the advantage of the ultrasonic in-display fingerprint sensor
Samsung Galaxy S10+ is one of the first smartphones to feature an HDR10+ screen. HDR10 is common to flagship phone, but HDR10+ is popular among top smart TVs. This feature is supported on a 6.4-inch Dynamic AMOLED touchscreen balanced with 1080 x 2340 pixels resolution.
What’s more, the display gets a curved feel to itself for more aesthetics. Not only the display enjoys Corning Gorilla Glass protection (version 6), the phone’s back is also guarded by Gorilla Glass 5.
When talking about the big guns with the best cameras, you can’t help but think about the Samsung Galaxy S10+ . There’s a total of five stunning cameras on this device – two at the front and three at the back.
Starting from the front, 10MP and 8MP shooters are left in charge of taking mind boggling selfies. While the 10MP camera attends to regular photography, the 8MP sensor infuses depth information for smart bokehs. Given the absence of the iris scanner, the selfie cameras here offer Face identification on the smartphone.
On the reverse, triple cameras are arranged horizontally in like fashion as the S10. The main shooter in this pack is the 12MP primary sensor with variable apertures of f/1.5 and f/2.4.
Right next to it is the telephoto camera with 12MP lens and 2x optical zoom to influence portrait pictures. The ultra-wide lens makes it to the Samsung Galaxy premium lineup for the first time thanks to the 16MP ultra-wide sensor.
Battery and Wireless Powershare
There’s a complete turnaround in the power sector of this lineup, as revealed by the 4,100mAh battery. It scales beyond the 3K+ mAh battery we do see in Samsung Galaxy S phones. And I’m happy to inform you that the charging time is inversely proportional to the battery capacity. In simpler words, the phone charges at a high-speed rate because of the Fast Charging Technology 15W.
You don’t also have to carry USB-C cables all the time as there’s Wireless Charging technology in the smartphone. While charging wirelessly, the phone charges at the same pace as when USB chargers are used.
Let’s assume your friend’s iPhone XS Max is low on battery power, and your Samsung Galaxy S10+ has over 30% battery, you can charge the iPhone XS Max with your S10+ without cords. It’s a feature called Wireless Powershare. Once the feature is turned on on the Galaxy device, the other device is placed on it and charging begins.
Hardware and Software of the Samsung Galaxy S10+
If you’re based in USA, China and Latin America, the 7nm Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 is the chipset that powers your Galaxy S10 Plus. The superb SoC is loaded with Adreno 640 GPU and an octa-core CPU with a minimum speed of 1.7GHz and max speed of 2.8GHz.
European, Middle Eastern and African markets will enjoy the services of Exynos 9820 SoC with octa-core 2.7GHz CPU and Mali-G76 MP12 GPU.
In line with performance, both chipsets get the leisure of either 8GB or 12GB RAM. Also, there are three options when it comes to the ROM department. The variations are as follows: 128GB, 512GB and 1TB.
Fortunately enough, the storage can be extended with the employment of 512GB memory card. Samsung’s One UI skin refines the Android 9.0 Pie OS on the device.
