Samsung Galaxy S10e (SM-G970) 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 S10e (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, which doubles as a fingerprint sensor, 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 kept the S10e at just under 8 mm.

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