Anticipating the “Unpacked” event that will take place in London on February 20, 2019, details about the new Samsung Galaxy S10e have been leaked almost entirely on the Internet. We now have clear photos of the cheapest S10 model, we know the technical specifications of the device and also how much it will cost once it hits the market.
The Galaxy S10e is the device that will rival directly with the iPhone XR, which is also the cheapest iPhone on the market.
Samsung Galaxy S10e will be based on the design of the Galaxy S10 and Galaxy S10+ however it will pack a different hardware platform. Firstly, the Infinity-O display will not be curved. The phone will come with an AMOLED 5.8 inches screen but will have a significantly more pronounced frame on the side. The glass that will cover the screen will be “2.5D” meaning that it will be just rounded, not curved. In the upper right corner we will find the frontal camera, with a single sensor.
Under the hood, the Galaxy S10e will pack the same general components as superior models in their basic versions. The Galaxy S10e will come with the Snapdragon 855 chipset in the United States and China and with the Exynos 9810 chipset internationally. The phone will come with 6 GB of RAM memory and 128 GB of internal storage but you can boost the storage by using microSD memory cards.
The battery will have a capacity of 3100 mAh and on the back the phone will come with a dual camera system, most likely similar to the Galaxy S9+. Unlike Galaxy S10 and Galaxy S10+, the Galaxy S10e will not pack a fingerprint sensor in the display. Samsung decided to include the sensor in the “power” button.
The Galaxy S10e will arrive on the market in black, green and white, with a blue version due to arrive later. The price will be comparable with the price of the iPhone XR: $750 in the United States. Most likely the phone will hit the market at the beginning of march.
