What’s new about the Samsung Galaxy S10
Users of Samsung’s handsets are already familiar with the great design and ease of usability that the brand offers. The S10 is no different, with Samsung perfecting already great features that have earned it so many fans. Many consumers have embraced the shift to larger screens, and the S10 takes it even further with a huge 6.1-inch display, making it the model’s most eye-catching feature.
It’s also got plenty to offer in terms of looks, thanks to the sleek presentation. Some other new additions are an in-display fingerprint sensor, previously spotted on rival models from OnePLus and Huawei. This is a premium release from a manufacturer looking to compete with current market leaders and doing a pretty great job too.

Closer look at the features
Look and display
The S10 model brings to life the Infinity-O design that was previewed during its annual conference last year and it’s quite the beauty. The all-screen design means that the display runs all the way to the edge of the handset, creating an immersive viewing experience for users. The speaker grill has shifted into a small space at the border of the phone. Despite the size, and it looks like a big display, the phone remains easy to handle, so you’re not sacrificing usability for a bigger screen. Additionally, all the interactive elements you may need to reach one-handed have shifted to the lower third of the screen.
The S10’s camera increases the total number of sensors to three. It’s not trying to be gimmicky as the sensors genuinely work to produce amazing shots all the time, capturing nature and architecture with truly high quality. The triple-camera system is likely to appeal to amateur photographers and includes Optical Image Stabilisation (OIS) alongside the 12mpg lens and variable aperture speeds. There’s also a 16mpg ultra-wide sensor that enables wide-angle shots that proved very popular with rival Huawei Mate 20 Pro.
If you’ve ever bemoaned the lack of storage on your phone, then the S10 is here to solve those issues once and for all. The capacity is a staggering 1TB, and you still have the option for a microSD expansion to cover all your storage needs. Finally, the S10 has an impressive 12GB of RAM.
When can you get a Samsung S10 and how much will it cost?
This is a premium handset so buying it SIM-free won’t come cheap (starting from £799) but it’s still below the prices charged by Apple’s latest iPhones. If you’d like to get your hands on the handset then it’s worth looking for Samsung Galaxy S10 deals as many mobile service providers will be offering great price offers though you should be prepared to pay an upfront cost too.
The new model was released on Friday March 8th. Want to get your hands on the newness? with Hoppy and find the best Samsung Galaxy S10 Contract today.
