We received an anonymous tip via email from an alleged inside source in Samsung’s retail channel. The tip consists of two sheets with the detailed specs of the Galaxy S10, Galaxy S10+ and Galaxy S10e. We cannot verify that these are the correct specs but they do fall in line with the numerous leaks we’ve covered in the previous weeks.
We reported on some of the details found in the sheets, like the new 10MP f/1.9 selfie camera that can capture 4K video. It will have dual-pixel AF but the sheets don’t mention optical stabilization, which was reported as a new feature. We’ve also heard of the new super slow-mo capabilities of the Galaxy S10 trio – they’ll be able to capture 0.4s-0.8s of video, twice as long as their predecessors.
Mostly the specs are a rehash of what’s been rumored for awhile now but there are some interesting bits, like the promised 800 nits of screen brightness – so far we’ve not tested a Galaxy flagship with more than 700 nits in our office.
Another deviation from what we’ve seen rumored is the screen size of the Galaxy S10+. The insider specs sheet claims a 6.3-inch diagonal of 3040x1440px resolution, whereas rumors say a 6.4-inch display.
Then there are the cameras – the Galaxy S10+ and Galaxy S10 have triple rear cameras (12 f/2.4 45-degree tele / 12MP f/1.5 77-degree regular / 16MP f/2.2 fixed-focus 123-degree ultra-wide) while the Galaxy S10e is listed as having a regular and an ultra-wide camera, while rumors suggested it will stick with the regular + tele configuration of the Galaxy S9+.
The claim that the Galaxy S10, S10+ and S10e have the world’s first selfie camera to capture 4K video is something the Nokia 8 might want to argue with.
There are the final tidbits such as the new 10 scene optimizer settings and the new Zoom and Color point effects in the camera.
The three Galaxy S10 flagships will be unveiled in less than 10 days and all of these leaks will be put to an end. Stay tuned until then as there will likely be more leaks in the meantime.
