Not long after it was revealed in San Francisco, the Samsung Galaxy S10 series arrived in Malaysia with much fanfare and long queue during its launch day. Recently, we’ve taken a look at some of the important features on the Samsung Galaxy S10 series including intelligent performance, ultrasonic fingerprint scanner, and Wireless PowerShare.
However, the Galaxy S10 series still have a couple more features that we’ve yet to explore in the previous article. So, let’s jump in and check them out.
Cinematic Infinity Display
As screens start taking up more and more space on the front of the phone, it’s only a matter of time before it takes over in its entirety. Samsung achieves this with its Infinity-O Display, leaving only a discreet cutout for the front camera. This maximises the screen-to-body ratio of the Galaxy S10 series of devices, giving you more screen without the need for a bulkier phone.
All three devices within the Galaxy S10 series are equipped with Dynamic AMOLED panel. Since the panel is HDR10+ certified, it has a greater colour contrast range with bright colours that truly stand out, while the dark ones are as deep as can be.
While you can choose to enjoy contents on your phone for extended periods of time, you should not feel discomfort while doing so. That shouldn’t be the case with Galaxy S10 series since it comes with a unique fluid composite that reduces harmful blue light by up to 42% without affecting colour accuracy.
Epic Shot Camera
Camera has become one of the most important parts for a smartphone today. Not only that it has to deliver good quality of output but it also has to be versatile and that is certainly what Galaxy S10 series is designed to deliver.
Regardless of which device with the Galaxy S10 series that you pick, you’ll have a 16MP Ultra Wide camera and a 12MP wide-angle camera. These cameras would allow you to take in more of the scenery for your shots.
Additionally, the 12MP wide-angle camera is equipped with Dual Aperture feature which would dynamically switch the camera’s lens aperture between f/2.4 in bright lighting and f/1.5 for low-light conditions that would bring in more lights for brighter photos.
In addition to that, the processor within the Galaxy S10 series would automatically combine multiple frames of the same shot into one to further help you obtain the best image output under low-light condition. If you pick up Galaxy S10 or Galaxy S10+, you will also get the additional telephoto camera that offers 2x optical zoom capability.
The front-facing camera on all of the Samsung Galaxy S10 devices is no slouch either since it comes with a 10MP Dual Pixel sensor. This allows for shots that are well lit, even in low light.
The Live focus feature on the Galaxy S10 devices is another potent self-expression tool that also allows you to adjust your selfie’s depth of field in real-time. This particular feature is much more enhanced on Galaxy S10+ since it is equipped with an additional 8MP RGB depth sensor.
Good hardware aside, the Samsung Galaxy S10 series also have some pretty impressive software features as well. To start, there’s one called Shot Suggestions which can help you obtain the best composition for your shots through an AI-powered analysis that was based on more than 100 million photos.
Scene Optimiser also makes a return from the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 although naturally, it has been improved further for the Galaxy S10 series. Instead of 20 scenes, the Scene Optimiser on the Galaxy S10 series recognises 30 different scenes, letting the phone optimize your shot to best suit the scenery.
If video recording is more your thing, then you might be glad to know that the front camera of Galaxy S10 devices is capable of shooting in 4K, just like their rear cameras. You can also further take advantage of the video recording capability of the Galaxy S10 series devices by capturing footages in 4K HDR10+ through their rear camera.
Even though limited to Full HD resolution, the Super Steady feature of Galaxy S10 series could be a helpful tool for adventurous users out there. Making use of predictive software as its electronic image stabiliser (EIS), your recordings will be smooth, even when you’re going on a bumpy ride.
That concludes our deeper look into some of the important features within the Samsung Galaxy S10 line of smartphones. The new Galaxy S10e, Galaxy S10, and Galaxy S10+ are now readily available in Malaysia with a starting price of RM 2699 onwards.
