The Samsung Galaxy S10 Plus Up Close!

Before its availability on 8 March 2019, Samsung arranged an exclusive hands-on session. Here is our hands-on video of the Samsung Galaxy S10 Plus (US | UK | MY) smartphone!

On the left side, you will find the Volume control buttons, as well as the dedicated Bixby button.

The Power button is located on the right side. Samsung repositioned it higher in the new Galaxy S10 smartphones, ostensibly to avoid accidental presses.

The hybrid SIM tray is located at the top, together with a second microphone port (for noise cancellation).

Thankfully, Samsung retained the 3.5 mm audio port while they squeezed the S10+ thinner – at just under 8 mm.

Everything else is the same as the Galaxy S9 Plus – a USB Type C port, a microphone port and an AKG-tuned speaker at the bottom.

 

More Powerful Platforms

The Samsung Galaxy S10 Plus (US | UK | MY) runs on either the new Samsung Exynos 9820 (worldwide), or the Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 (United States) platforms.

The Samsung Exynos 9820 has a triple-cluster CPU architecture with a Neural Processing Unit (NPU) (like the Kirin 980). Samsung says that it will deliver these performance advantages over the Exynos 9810 :

  • 20% better single core performance,
  • 15% better multi-core performance,
  • 40% better power efficiency, and
  • 7X faster AI performance

Built on the 8 nm LPP FinFET process technology, it also boasts 10% lower power consumption, compared to the last generation 10 nm LPP process.

The Qualcomm Snapdragon 855, on the other hand, is fabricated on the 7 nm process technology., which should deliver similar power savings.

It also uses a triple-cluster CPU architecture, and comes with an Adreno 640 GPU and an X24 LTE modem that supports Cat20 download and uploads.

 

More Memory + Storage!

The Samsung Galaxy S10 Plus (US | UK | MY) comes with a lot more memory and storage :

  • 8 GB LPDDR4x + 128 GB eUFS 2.1 storage
  • 8 GB LPDDR4x + 512 GB eUFS 2.1 storage
  • 12 GB LPDDR4x + 1 TB eUFS 2.1 storage

And if that’s not enough, it comes with a hybrid SIM tray, where the second SIM slot can support a microSD card of up to 512 GB in capacity. If you don’t need the extra storage, you can use two nano SIM cards at the same time.

A hybrid SIM tray is generally good enough for most people. But if you need to use two SIM cards, you better opt for higher internal storage, because there is no way to add a microSD card.
