Days before Samsung’s Unpacked event for the launch of its 10th generation of Galaxy phones takes place, an anonymous source has come forward with detailed spec sheets of the Galaxy S10, Galaxy S10e, and Galaxy S10+. The two sheets were apparently emailed to GSMArena from someone claiming to be a part of Samsung’s retail channel. Many of the specifications listed have already been covered in previous leaks. However, there are still a few interesting aspects worth taking a look at.
Do keep in mind that the authenticity of this leak cannot be confirmed, so make of that what you will.
Galaxy S10 Display to Support 800nits Brightness
The display sizes for the upcoming Galaxy S10 devices has been known for quite a while now, and the leaked pages note the same. However, a rundown of the phones’ highlighting features says that the screen supports up to 800 nits of brightness. The highest brightness levels observed on an existing Galaxy phone was with the Note 9 that is known to achieve 710 nits of full-screen peak brightness.
To recap, the S10e will come with a 5.8-inch AMOLED screen with a 2280 x 1080 resolution. The S10, on the other hand, will offer 3040 x 1440 resolution AMOLED panel measures 6.1-inches. It is interesting to note that the leak in question mentions the S10+’s display size to measure in at 6.3-inches, while all previous reports have pointed towards a 6.4-inch panel. Moving on, the sheet also mentions that the display on the S10e is protected with Gorilla Glass 5, while the other two phones are said to utilize Gorilla Glass 6.
All three of these phones will offer support for HDR10+ playback. The leak happens to specify that the phones will be using ‘Dynamic AMOLED HDR’ panels that might possibly assist in enhancing video content on the fly.
Galaxy S10 To Feature 4K Selfie Camera, Super Slow-Mo Video Recording
The more exciting aspects mentioned in this list are with regards to the imaging setup on the upcoming phones. The 10MP primary selfie shooters of all three phones are claimed to be the world’s first selfie cameras to feature 4K video recording. This isn’t entirely true as 2017’s Nokia 8 has already offered this functionality.
The rear camera specs have also been laid out in the sheet. Contrary to what previous leaks have suggested, the S10e is said to feature a 12MP wide lens with OIS paired with a 16MP ultra-wide sensor instead of adopting the wide+telephoto setup of the Galaxy S9 Plus. Meanwhile, the S10 and S10+ are expected to ship with triple rear cameras, with the first sensor being a 12MP telephoto lens with OIS, the second being a 12MP wide-angle lens with OIS, and the third being a 16MP ultra-wide lens.
The sheet also mentions the addition of new ‘Color point effects’ along with ten new scene optimizer settings. The rest of the camera related information is about the same as you’d expect from a Samsung phone.
Also worth noting is how the battery capacity of the S10 is mentioned to be 3400mAh. Previous leaks had suggested either a 3500mAh or a 3300mAh cell to arrive on this model. The other two phones’ battery sizes are in line with other leaks – 4100mAh for the S10+ and 3100mAh for the S10e.
