The Samsung Galaxy S10e (SM-G970) Smartphone Preview!

More Samsung Galaxy S10e Features

More Cameras

The Samsung Galaxy S10e (US | UK | MY) boasts a new front camera that pairs a 10 MP Dual Pixel sensor with f/1.9 lens.

Dual Pixel is an autofocus technology that uses the dual photodiodes in every pixel on the image sensor for phase-detection autofocus.

This allows for faster and more accurate focusing, because it uses many more autofocus pixels, instead of just a few dedicated pixels (usually less than 5% of the total).

However, it lacks the 8 MP depth sensor of the Samsung Galaxy S10+ (US | UK | MY), which allows for accurate software bokeh effects and Live Focus capability.

In the back, the Samsung Galaxy S10e (US | UK | MY) comes with a dual camera system, which consists of :

  • a 12 MP dual-aperture camera (f/1.5 and f/2.4)
  • a 16 MP ultra wide-angle camera (f/2.2)

Unlike the dual camera system of the Galaxy S9+ and the Galaxy Note9, it swapped out the 12 MP telephoto camera for a 16 MP ultra-wide camera with f/2.2 lens. It is also supported by a single LED flash.


Improved Super Slow-mo

The Samsung Galaxy S10e (US | UK | MY) supports an improved version of Super Slow-mo, in which the recording time was doubled from 0.2-0.4 seconds to 0.4-0.8 seconds. Unfortunately, the video resolution is still limited to 720p at 960 fps.


Side Fingerprint Sensor

Unlike the Samsung Galaxy S10+ (US | UK | MY) or the Galaxy S10 (US | UK | MY), the Galaxy S10e (US | UK | MY) lacks an in-display ultrasonic fingerprint sensor.

Instead, it uses a side touch sensor integrated into the power button – a feature first introduced in the Samsung Galaxy A7 2018 (MY | US | UK).

The side fingerprint sensor has the advantage of being accessible even when the Galaxy S10e is attached to a car mount. The higher position of the sensor will also help in preventing accidental activation.


Battery + Charging

The Samsung Galaxy S10e (US | UK | MY) comes with a 3,100 mAh battery, which is slightly more than the Galaxy S9. It supports QuickCharge 2.0 fast wired charging and Wireless PowerShare capabilities.

The Wireless PowerShare feature is particularly cool and useful. It allows the Galaxy S10 Plus to function as a wireless charger for any Qi-certified device!
