The Samsung Galaxy S10 is one beautiful phone. We give it that. It’s also one of the most radical one yet, with massive design changes and new colors added to the lineup. They also brought back some old to the Galaxy S flagship family just to shake things up a little.

New Infinity-O Displays

After years of shrinking the top and bottom bezels, Samsung has finally had it with bezels. The Samsung Galaxy S10 smartphones all lose the bezels, and instead of going with a notch, they adopt in-screen selfie cameras. Samsung calls this their Infinity-O design, and it definitely marks a new frontier when it comes to pushing the limits on screen-to-body ratio.

They didn’t just stop there, as under the beautiful HDR10+-certified Dynamic AMOLED panels in the Galaxy S10 and Galaxy S10+ are ultrasonic fingerprint scanners that works well even when your fingers aren’t exactly clean, something which would cause earlier iterations of under-display fingerprint scanners failed. Being able to unlock your screen just by touching the screen is definitely a convenience everyone should be able to enjoy.

Samsung also brought back a flat display with the Galaxy S10e. It touts the same Dynamic AMOLED technology with HDR10+ support, which means all you are giving up are the curved edges. It also touts the Infinity-O design too so you won’t mistake it for one of Samsung’s older devices. While we personally prefer the seamless look of Samsung’s Edge displays, now there’s an option for those of you out there who prefer flat displays.

New Colors and Materials

Samsung’s Galaxy S lineup is well known for premium colors like black and blue, which is now widely adopted by the industry. With this being the 10th anniversary of the Galaxy S series, Samsung clearly wanted to shake things up a little, and added more colors and materials for you to choose from.

For starters, there’s the new Prism Green color, which is a unique shade of emerald that catches and reflects light in a unique way that you will have to see to understand its regal appeal. Samsung Malaysia offers this shade for all the new Samsung Galaxy S10 devices, from the Galaxy S10e all the way to the Galaxy S10 Plus.

Prism Green isn’t the only shade that has a unique reflective property. The Galaxy S10 in Prism White is a sight to behold, with a multitude of colorful hues that emanates when the device is moved around under light.

Then there’s also the ceramic-clad Samsung Galaxy S10+ 512GB. It screams “premium” with its solid color finish that is clearly a level above any finishing you can apply on glass. Aside from looking amazing, ceramic is also inherently more scratch resistant, thus resulting in a device that will still look just as awesome as the day you took it out of the box, even after months of use.

New Levels of Performance

The Samsung Galaxy S10 devices are Samsung’s first smartphones to feature the latest 8nm Exynos 9820 processors. With an octa-core chipset running at up to 2.73 GHz, the Galaxy S10 offers an unprecedented level of performance in a Samsung flagship device.

The Galaxy S10 and Galaxy S10+ are also the first devices from Samsung to feature 8GB of RAM for immense multitasking potential. Coupled with the large 4100 mAh battery in the Galaxy S10+, you will be ready to work or play without missing a beat at all times. The best part? Thanks to the IP68 rating on all the Samsung Galaxy S10 devices, you can bring all that horsepower practically everywhere you want.

Tempted to get a Samsung Galaxy S10 for yourself? Here’s where you can get them. From 8th to 10th of March 2019, Samsung will be holding the Galaxy S10 Roadshow at 3 locations:

  • Mid Valley Megamall Kuala Lumpur
