The time of year where we look forward to the new range of Samsung phones has arrived, and in 2019 the Samsung S10 range will take centre stage.

The three models we’re expecting to see include:

• the flagship Galaxy S10
• the lower priced Galaxy S10 Lite/S10E
• the upper-end Galaxy S10 Plus


Here’s everything we know about the S10 Lite, or S10E, so far.

Expected launch

The launch date for the Galaxy S10 range is confirmed to be on 20 February, with the release date rumoured to be on 8 March.

Expected cost

Varying sources seem to place the S10 Lite/S10E in the region of £500-£600, though we have also seen reports that this could climb to around £669. This model also comes with 128GB of storage.

Design

We didn’t see a huge change in design on last year’s Galaxy S9 range compared to its predecessor. However it seems as though things will be different this year.

Rumours tell us that all of the new S10 phones will all have an Infinity-O display, which refers to the hole-punch design on its front that contains the selfie camera.

While the S10 and S10 Plus both have curved screens, the S10E, being the budget model, has a flat screen measuring at 5.8 inches. It’s rumoured to have a resolution of 1080 x 2230, its pixel density being 438 pixels per inch, while the screen itself will be made using Gorilla Glass 5.

The range of colours being reported for the new range include black, silver, pink, blue, and/or green.

Features

The S10E will only have one lens in its selfie camera, as will the flagship S10, while the S10 Plus will have two lenses. The S10E’s rear camera will get two lenses, compared to the three that the S10 and S10 Plus are said to have.

It will also have a slightly less advanced fingerprint scanning technology built into its screen, relying on optical scanning rather than the newer ultrasonic method, as well as possibly including a side-mounted fingerprint scanner.

The S10E will be capable of wireless charging, with a reported boost to charging speed as a result of the Quick Charge 2.0 technology. However it’s unlikely to include the Powershare feature of the more expensive models that could allow them to charge other handsets.

Additionally, the S10E is likely to have a 3,100mAh battery.

All models in the range will also keep the 3.5mm headphone jack, despite some rumours that Samsung were planning to ditch the feature.

Technical specifications

All the Galaxy S10 models are said to be built with the Exynos 9820 chip, making them the most power-efficient Samsung phones to date. The chip supports a longer battery life as well as heavier and more visually intense apps and games, and it should also help improve security features.

However some reports imply that the Exynos chip won’t be used in US handsets, which will instead be using the Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 845 or 855.
