Samsung has announced its latest flagship smartphones, introducing the triple-camera Galaxy S10 and S10 Plus. The company also debuted a budget version called the S10e and an S10 5G enhanced for video.
The Samsung S10 camera array comprises a 12-megapixel, wide-angle main camera with dual pixel AF and optical image stabilisation, a 16-megapixel ultra-wide-angle camera with no AF and a 12-megapixel camera with a telephoto lens and phase detection AF (note, the S10e does not have the telephoto lens).
With so many versions of the Samsung S10, the different iterations can get confusing. The S10, S10 Plus and S10e all feature an 8-megapixel RGB depth-sensing camera, while the S10 5G boasts a time of flight depth sensing camera on the front and rear of the phone.
These are able to sense the distance of objects in the scene and apply filters and effects, such as background blur, in real time to your videos.
All of the new Samsung Galaxy S10 cameras can shoot 4K UHD video in the HDR10+ format, as well as an AI-driven Scene Optimizer that can recognise up to 30 different types of scenes.
Of these, Bright Night follows Huawei’s much-lauded Night Mode and allows users to shoot handheld long exposures in low light.
Screen sizes vary by device. The Samsung Galaxy S10 is 6.1 inches and the S10 Plus measures 6.4 inches, while the budget S10e is 5.8 inches.
