With the official Galaxy S10 launch just two weeks ago, the leaks have picked up in pace. Over the past week, we've seen some very clear official renders of Samsung’s entire Galaxy S10 family: the Galaxy S10e, Galaxy S10 and Galaxy S10+. Now, we're getting a real-life look at the entry-level Galaxy S10e.
The images show the smartphone with a flat Infinity-O display, unlike the curved panel that we've seen with the larger Galaxy S10 and Galaxy S10+. We can also see relatively thick bezels all around the Super AMOLED display. The bezels remind us more of the iPhone XR, which itself has thicker bezels than its pricier iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max siblings.
Speaking of the iPhone XR, the Galaxy S10e is rumored to be priced competitively with that smartphone model. The Galaxy S10e will reportedly feature a 5.8-inch display versus the 6.1-inch display on the iPhone XR. However, the former's Super AMOLED panel is technically superior to the LCD panel used in the latter.
Besides the smaller display compared to its siblings, the Galaxy S10e also shows its down-market roots with a fingerprint reader embedded in the power button. The Galaxy S10 and Galaxy S10+, however, will feature an in-display fingerprint reader. The Galaxy S10e also includes just two rear cameras whereas the other members of the family feature a triple-camera setup out back.
The Galaxy S10e will share the Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 processor with the other members of the family, but will pair it with 6GB of RAM. It's also reported that the phone will be available in just one storage configuration: 128GB.
- Galaxy S10+: 6GB RAM + 128GB storage, 8GB RAM + 512GB storage, 12GB RAM + 1TB storage
- Galaxy S10: 6GB RAM + 128GB storage, 8GB RAM + 512GB storage
- Galaxy S10e: 6GB RAM + 128GB storage
A separate report from GizChina claims that the Galaxy S10 and Galaxy S10+ will both feature a selfie camera that can shoot 4K video at 60fps. In addition, the camera will also allegedly support optical image stabilization (OIS).
