This year’s first edition of one of the most exciting annual smartphone event has finally arrived – the tenth-generation Samsung Galaxy S flagship series has been Unpacked. For the first time it’s four of them – three regular ones that everyone is going to get plus an extra special edition with a less mainstream appeal.

The regular range goes like this – the fully tricked out top-end Galaxy S10+, the smaller Galaxy S10 that’s one selfie camera short, and the even more compact and slightly lower-specced Galaxy S10e (yes, also to be available in Canary Yellow). Then the icing on the cake is the Galaxy S10 5G model that’s even bigger than the Plus, and has ToF cameras front and back, bringing the total to six.

Samsung Galaxy S10 – Performance

Screen aside, the rest of the design feels familiar. Present and correct are the super-smudge-attracting glass on the rear of the device, USB-C along the bottom edge, and even a headphone jack. The S10 is a delicate phone that remains hard to hold for extended periods, as a result of its sharp edges. While I’m aware that Samsung is a firm fan and has every faith in this design, I think more could have been done.

Galaxy S10 Price

We haven’t yet received official word on the pricing of the Galaxy S10 range, but there are ballpark estimates floating around that could give us an indication as to what the phones will ultimately cost.

On one side of spectrum, you have prices floated by Gizmodo UK based on info it says it received from a “source at a major tech retailer.” The entry-level 5.8-inch S10 Lite will reportedly start at £669, followed by the 6.1-inch S10 at £799 and the range-topping S10 Plus at £899 (which could measure either 6.4 or 6.7 inches, depending on who you ask). All three models will come with at least 128GB of storage, the article reads, though the highest capacity S10 Plus will offer 1TB of storage for a whopping £1399.
