Even 5G is not commercial in all over the world, the South Korean electronics giant Samsung is already started to dominate in this sector. The company has sold 1 million units of its newly unveiled Galaxy S10 5G variant. the company launched the device earlier this year.
The company has managed to sell the device in the market of South Korea and the average number of sale is 15,000 Galaxy S10 5G’s per day.
Speaking about the Galaxy S10 5G, the South Korea’s three mobile carriers – SK Telecom, KT and LG Uplus – held launch events across Seoul, and the pricing of the base version costs KRW 1.39 million ($1,200).
It sports a 6.7 inch of Quad HD+ AMOLED display with 3040 x 1440 resolution and 502 ppi. It has support for HDR+ for a better viewing experience. The aspect ratio is 19:9 and Gorilla Glass 6 covers all these. It comes with two chipset variants; Exynos 9820 octa core processor built on the 8mm process and Qualcomm’ Snapdragon 855 proccessor built on the 7mm process. It has Mali-G76 MP12 and Adreno 640 GPU respectively. It comes with only one storage configuration i.e. 8GB of RAM and 256GB of internal storage, without expandable storage option. I was hoping this to get 512GB of storage due to the fact that it has 5G connectivity.
Coming to the camera, it is almost identical to Galaxy S10+. The primary is a 12MP sensor with f/1.5 dual aperture lens and dual pixel OIS. Secondary is also a 12MP sensor but with f/2.4 telephoto 2x zoom lens, autofocus, and OIS. Lastly, the third one is the 16MP sensor with f/2.2 ultra wide angle (133) lens but with fixed focus. Things change here a bit with a TOF camera for 3D depth sensing. It can record videos up to 4K at 60fps, 1080p at 240fps, and 720p at 960fps. On the front, there is a 10MP sensor with a f/1.9 lens and Dual Pixel PDAF, and also a secondary 8MP depth sensor with f/2.2 lens and dual pixel autofocus. This device also has 4K video recording option from the front camera. Other camera features are AR Emojis, Stickers, and live focus. The front setup also has a TOF camera.
This Galaxy S10 5G runs on Android 9.0 Pie out of the box with Samsung’s One UI on top. It packs in a 4500mAh battery with 25W fast charging support. It has 15W fast wireless charging as well as PowerShare reverse charging technology. It has stereo speakers with Dolby ATMOS support and 3.5mm headphone jack with 32-bit sound. For connectivity, it obviously has 5G, dual band Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 5, GPS, NFC, aptX HD, and Type-C port.
