Samsung’s 2019 flagship lineup this year will consist of three devices this year, courtesy of the newly announced Galaxy S10e.
Envisioned as a more-affordable Galaxy flagship, the Galaxy S10e features a 5.8-inch dynamic AMOLED HDR+ display with a holepunch notch, 6GB of RAM, a 3100mAh battery headphone jack, MicroSD slot, wireless charging, IP68 water resistance and a side-mounted fingerprint sensor.
It'll still run on Android 9.0, Samsung's new One UI software plus the latest Exynos processor. But it won’t feature the ultra-sonic fingerprint sensor or the triple lens camera array found in the S10 and S10+.
The Galaxy S10e boasts the same 10-megapixel front-facing camera found in the regular S10 and opts for a dual lens solution on the back. This consists of a 12-megapixel (f/1.5) wide angle lens and a 16-megapixel (f/2.2) ultra wide angle lens.
In Australia, pricing for the Galaxy S10e starts and ends at $1199. There’s only a single model on offer - 128GB - and the device is available in three colors - Prism Green, Prism Black and Prism White.
The Galaxy S10e will be available from all the usual suspects alongside the Galaxy S10 and S10+ from the 8th of March.
