The newest flagships from Korean tech giant Samsung have just been announced! The handsets look pretty good and yes, Samsung also has additional goodies to complement the S10 ecosystem of devices. This is the tenth generation of smartphones from the brand and marks ten solid years of strong and innovative offerings to consumers. Samsung has and continues to hold pole position in sales and fanbase; a very impressive feat.

2019 is the year we finally get to see handsets with foldable screen technology, after two or three years of being teased at most international tech conventions in the form of handbags and tumblers. At the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona this year, Samsung has delivered a keynote livestream where they showed off their foldable phone offering and more importantly, the Galaxy S10.

Right off the bat, all models carry Samsung’s dynamic AMOLED displays. These fill up practically the entire screen save for the locations of the cameras, something the brand dubbed as the Infinity-O display. Save for these cutouts, the front of these phones are all screen, which means all of the models feature in-display fingerprint scanners.

The baby of the family, the Galaxy S10e, is the only flat screen version of the S10, with the other two sporting curved displays. All of them look very sleek and feature a lot of Samsung’s aesthetics unique to this line.

Another noteworthy mention is that ALL variants run on the Exynos 9820 chipset, the latest in Samsung’s proprietary processors. Consumers won’t be gimping themselves when they get the lowest-tier variant in terms of phone performance, which is something good for power users. Truth be told, even the slight sacrifice of the S10e’s camera sets and battery won’t really matter much.

Bottom line: Samsung created different-tiered flagships. All are high-performance and come at great price points.

The Galaxy S10e will be available in Prism White, while the Galaxy S10 will be available in Prism White and Prism Black. Consumers who will opt for the Galaxy S10+ will have three colors to choose from: Prism White, Prism Black, and Prism Green. The Galaxy S10+ will also be available in a premium Ceramic Black variant.[15]

Pricing starts at PHP39,990 for the Galaxy S10e, PHP49,990 for the Galaxy S10, and PHP55,990 for Galaxy S10+. The limited edition Galaxy S10+ Ceramic Black (1TB) model will only be available via pre-order at PHP89,990. Consumers who pre-order a Galaxy S10e, Galaxy S10, and Galaxy S10+ will receive freebies worth up to PHP28,500.00.
