Samsung Galaxy S10 5G Specifications

There are a few changes from the Galaxy S10+ when it comes to hardware in the Samsung Galaxy S10 5G. It sports a giant 6.7-inch display as compared to the Galaxy S10 Plus’ 6.4-inch panel. It’s the same Infinity-O Dynamic AMOLED display with HDR10+ certification and two cameras sitting in the pill-shaped cut-out on the top right corner. It also packs a huge 4,500mAh battery that can be fast-charged with the bundled 25W fast charger. The phone also supports wireless and reverse wireless charging tech.

Under the hood, the Samsung Galaxy S10 5G comes with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 mobile platform integrated with the Qualcomm Snapdragon X50 5G modem. The modem is expected to draw more power, hence the 4,500mAh battery. The phone offers 256GB of storage without the option to expand it though and has 8GB of RAM. In the camera department, the Galaxy S10 5G has a setup similar to the one on the Galaxy S10 Plus but it adds a 3D ToF sensor on the back that allows “Video Live Focus” and a “Quick Measure” app.
