Plus, depending on what screen size you prefer, the Galaxy S10 range has you covered. All S10 models feature the Infinity-OTM Display, however the Galaxy S10+ has a 6.4” display, while the Galaxy S10 has a 6.1” display and the Galaxy S10e has a 5.8” display1. The Galaxy S10 and S10+ also feature Quad HD+ resolution, while the Galaxy S10e supports Full HD+ resolution.
2. Shoot better photos than ever with the Galaxy S10’s Pro-grade Camera

Forget the professional equipment or training – you can shoot fantastic photos just by using your smartphone.
3. Lock your phone with high-security, using the in-display fingerprint sensor
In exciting news, Samsung just announced their first-ever in-display Ultrasonic Fingerprint sensor in the Samsung Galaxy S10 and S10+. This feature uses ultrasonic waves and machine learning to read your unique fingerprint2. The best part? It even works under dry, cold conditions, so you’ll have peace of mind that you can unlock your phone with ease, while keeping your data and personal information safe.
4. Share battery between devices with Wireless PowerShare
The ultimate power up! Share your device’s battery between your friends with this cool new feature in the S10 range3. If one of you has over 30% battery on your device, simply use the device-to-device recharge function with the device in need, with no wires or outlets required. This is a great function to use if you get stuck at a concert or festival, or camping and are far away from your charger but in need of a quick boost.
5. Stress less about your battery life with All Day Intelligent Battery
In addition to the awesome Wireless PowerShare function, the Samsung Galaxy S10 range comes with a large battery capacity, coupled with a built-in battery manager, to help make your battery-life go further. This battery manager learns your daily routine and usage patterns, so intelligently adapts to your needs. This includes closing apps you don’t need, proactively managing power save mode and optimising CPU power to reduce the chances that you run out of power4.
6. Enjoy a full kit of camera lenses, right at your fingertips
To help you take pro shots, the Galaxy S10 and S10+ have a full kit of camera lenses – including zoom5 for the better close ups, wide mode for daily shots and ultra-wide for getting everyone in your selfies and capturing panoramic landscapes. So grab a Galaxy S10, take it out and get shooting!
7. Make your photos look more professional with Day to Night light control
The Samsung Galaxy S10’s dual aperture lens is designed to automatically adjust to the amount of light depending on the time of day. It can handle harsh bright light during the day or dim lighting at a restaurant or bar at night. Dual aperture supports F1.5 / F2.4 modes and is installed on the main rear wide camera.
8. Take better panoramic shots with Panoramic Ultra-Wide Lens
The ultra-wide lens on the Samsung Galaxy S10 captures up to four times more than a standard wide lens. With its 123-degree perspective, the ultra-wide lens ensures you can capture breathtaking landscapes and fit all your friends in a group picture.
9. Get smoother videos with the Pro-level Action Camera
The Super Steady video mode in the Galaxy S10 takes away the shaking and makes your action videos look smooth6. You can use this feature to film sporting events and stunts – anything where you need a bit more stability.
10. Enjoy the Premium feel with a Ceramic Finish
Be the envy of all your friends and experience a beautiful, ultra-premium, reflective ceramic rear finish, available on the Samsung Galaxy S10+ 512GB and 1TB models only.
