With 2019 marking the 10 year anniversary of Samsung as an organisation, it seems fitting that they have announced a smartphone of the calibre that is the Samsung Galaxy S10. Regardless of the recent leaks and rumours surrounding Samsung’s next smartphone,  Samsung’s ‘Galaxy Unpacked 2019’ event was still extremely anticipated and solidified what we can expect from Samsung this year. Samsung’s ‘Unpacked’ event is usually the way Samsung announces their newest technology in the works to be released, but this year was extra special, with Samsung celebrating their 10 year anniversary and announcing that the firm has sold around 2 billion Galaxy smartphones in the past 10 years.

So, what’s new with the Samsung Galaxy S10?

The instant reaction for anyone who gets their hands on the new smartphone is that a lot has changed. The first thing that is impressive about the new smartphone is the huge 6.1inch Infinity Display, with an edge-to-edge look that stretches around the sides of the device, leaving big bezels in the past. Because of its new Infinity-O screen being so large, Samsung has incorporated the front camera with a small ‘punch-hole’ in the screen, making the device appear seamless. An ultrasonic fingerprint sensor has also been included behind glass that is the screen, making this feature invisible and seamless, again. If the device was not seamless looking enough, Samsung has also included Wireless PowerShare, allowing the user the use the back of the S10 to charge another phone or the new Galaxy buds that are aiming to rival the Apple AirPods.

The Samsung Galaxy S10 is a great way for Samsung to celebrate their 10 year anniversary as an organisation as it provides enough new features and disrupts the sameness of smartphones that we are used to enough to really tempt someone to upgrade. However, the price really does give you a heart attack, which is why cheaper versions of the device such as the Samsung Galaxy S10e are being created to cater for those with a smaller budget but who still want to get the new device’s experience.
