Key features as highlighted by Samsung at the time of launch are :

  • Pro-Grade Hexa Camera : Samsung has upped the game by providing a dedicated Neural Processing Unit (NPU). This can be taken as a separate processor dedicated for picture processing. Like we have a dedicated graphics processors in Laptop / Desktop to render high end graphics like 4K and gaming. This will definitely help in processing and images with much higher details. As the name suggests it has 6 cameras that include 1 3D depth camera. The bokeh feature is achieved by actually bouncing the lights off the object and receiving back. This helps the NPU to understands the depth / distance and accordingly provide the same in the final picture.
  •  Big Viewing Screen : The Samsung Galaxy S10 5G comes with 6.7 inch end-to-end display. The screen is Dynamic AMOLED. This display is especially designed by Samsung with keeping in mind the 5G aspects. Being high speed internet capable phone , the content rendered will be of 4K, AR , VR etc hence the display should accommodate every detail.
  • Performance Factor : With high end CPUs to process everything, 5G network speeds, you are bound to consume data / gaming a lot. Hence arise the need of higher battery backup. Samsung Galaxy S10 5G is packed with 4500 mAh battery. This can support quite well during the day with standard usage. This is coupled with Super Fast Charging at 25W in case the need comes to juice it up.
