The latest Samsung flagship phone is finally here! Read on to find out everything you need to know about the Galaxy S10.

Is the Galaxy S10 foldable?

Nope. You're thinking of the new Samsung Galaxy Fold (due for release on May 3rd). The Galaxy S10 is a single-screen phone, next in line after the Galaxy S9 in the flagship 'S' series.

How many versions of the Galaxy S10 are there and how much do they cost?

The Samsung Galaxy S10e, S10 and S10+ went on sale on 8th March, with a 5G version set to follow in the first half of 2019. Can't wait for that one.

Of the initial releases, the top-of-the-range Galaxy S10+ has the best specs, the most impressive camera array and the largest screen. The 128GB / 8GB RAM model is available for £899, while the 1TB / 12GB RAM version will set you back a cool £1,399.

The standard Galaxy S10 has a slightly smaller screen and battery but isn't far off the S10+ in terms of performance. You can get your hands on the 128GB / 8GB RAM version for £799, while the 512GB / 8GB RAM version costs £999.

The Samsung Galaxy S10e is a stripped-down version of the Galaxy S10, although there aren't many compromises, and the screen resolution is impressive considering the price. The S10e has 128GB storage / 6GB RAM and costs £669.

What do they look like?

Samsung stuck to their guns with their anti-notch stance. The Galaxy S10 and S10e both have a small, round, punch-hole-style front-facing camera in the top corner of the display. It takes up less screen-space than bezel or an indent, and, even when watching video in full-screen, isn't particularly noticeable or intrusive. Result!

The S10+ looks very similar, although the punch-hole is slightly wider and shorter to make room for the dual front-facing cameras. 

On both the S10 and S10+ the bezel is super-thin. The S10e has a slightly thicker edge but you probably won't notice unless you compare them side-by-side.

All three versions are available in white, green and black, and the S10e also comes in a rather lairy 'Canary Yellow'.

What features will they have?

The Galaxy S10 will be one of the fastest smartphones on the market, with an all-powerful Exynos 9 Series 9820 chipset. All three versions will also have larger battery capacity.

The S10 has a four-camera array and the S10+ has a five-lens setup - outstripping even the Galaxy A7. While the S10e only has 3 cameras, you can expect impeccable photo quality from all three devices.

They also come with the standard 3.5mm earphone jack - literally music to our ears (chortle).

Speaking of earphones, at the Samsung Unpacked event, the South Korean tech giants also announced the new Galaxy Buds - bluetooth earphones with wireless in-case charging.

The S10 can also charge other devices and accessories wirelessly - so if you're out and about and a friend's mobile is about to run out of battery, you can enable 'PowerShare' and swoop in to save the day. Heroic!

All in all, the Samsung S10 is set to be one of the best phones released in 2019. It'll be interesting to see whether the new features and a wider range of handsets will be enough to convince people to upgrade.
