The Samsung Galaxy S10 is an ultra-powerful and intelligent phone with a variety of new features that truly demonstrate the next generation of Galaxy. They include:


  • World's First Dynamic AMOLED Display: As the first HDR10+-certified smartphone, the display provides vivid digital content, and with dynamic tone mapping, you'll see a wider range of color for a brilliant, realistic picture.
  • In-Display Ultrasonic Fingerprint Scanner: By just touching your screen, an in-display sensor reads the 3D contours of your physical thumbprint for improved anti-spoofing, and it even unlocks in extreme sunlight and in cold temperatures from any angle (not available on Galaxy S10e).
  • Epic Camera: A full kit of pro lenses and an ultra-wide, 123 degree panoramic field of view, similar to the human eye, ensures you can effortlessly capture professional quality photos.
  • Intelligent Performance: The new AI software automatically optimizes battery, CPU, RAM, and even device temperature based on how you use your phone, and continues to learn and get better over time. It can even learn how you use your device to launch your most frequently used apps faster.
  • All-Day Intelligent Battery2: A smarter battery optimizes usage based on how you live, to deliver an intuitive and energetic peak performance around the clock.
  • Wireless PowerShare: Wirelessly charge your Galaxy Buds, Galaxy Watch Active or even a friend's phone3 just by placing them on the back of your Galaxy S10 device.


"We want our customers to get the most out of their phones, so we provide a strong and fast network that keeps up with their lifestyle and works where they need it," said Mark Vitale, senior director of product management and device strategy. "With the Galaxy S10, Samsung has certainly raised the bar for smartphone capabilities, and we are offering our loyal customers a great deal right out of the gate. We can't wait for them to experience this next generation of Galaxy at an unbeatable price.
