Galaxy S10 official: screen hole and 5G support

Samsung has taken the wraps off the Galaxy S10. Launched in three versions that differ in screen size and performance. Here are the prices

After the Galaxy Fold, Samsung's first foldable smartphone, the South Korean company also unveiled the new Galaxy S10 range. In the tenth anniversary of its most famous smartphone series, Samsung wanted to make things big by making as many as three Galaxy S10 models. The three devices have been widely anticipated in the previous weeks, with images and videos leaked online.

Galaxy S10e, Galaxy S10 and Galaxy S10+, these are the names of the three devices launched by Samsung. They differ in screen size and some internal components. The common feature is the hole on the screen: thanks to the new Dynamic AMOLED display it was possible to insert many sensors under the screen and decrease the thickness of the upper and lower bezel. For the first time Samsung has also made a low-cost version of its top of the range. The Galaxy S10e has a smaller screen and only two rear cameras, but the processor and performance are the same as its two bigger brothers.
