They might not be the flashiest features, but Samsungs new Galaxy S10 line has a subtler pair of upgrades that could meaningfully improve the experience of using them day in and out. All three new phones, the S10, S10 Plus, and S10E, include support for Wi-Fi 6 as well as 2 gigabit LTE speeds, up from 1.2 gigabits last year. The upgrades offer the potential for faster internet speeds, whether youre connected to a cell network or just your home router.
Now, there are some big caveats here. For one, youre never actually going to hit 2 Gbps on your wireless network that figure is the phones theoretical maximum speed. But the higher figure reflects various speed-boosting improvements, which ought to translate to at least some…
Samsung is bumping the storage up to 1TB in its new Galaxy S10 Plus. Its the first handset to use Samsungs new 1TB eUFS (embedded Universal Flash Storage) solution, and its the same size as last years 512GB version. While Samsung marketed the Galaxy Note 9 as 1 terabyte ready, it needed an additional 512GB microSD card to reach that storage capacity. Samsungs Galaxy S10 Plus comes with up to 1TB of storage on board, putting it ahead of the storage of most modern laptops.
Samsung CEO DJ Koh has announced that the company has sold over 2 billion Galaxy phones since it started selling them back in 2010, marking one of the first times that the company has ever put a number on sales for the line. The news came at Samsungs Galaxy Unpacked event, where it announced the new Galaxy Fold and Galaxy S10 devices.
Now, Samsung didnt say what phones it was including in that count certainly, the Galaxy S and Galaxy Note lines are included, but Samsung does also sell numerous other Galaxy phones in different markets like the Galaxy A, Galaxy C, Galaxy J, and other variants over the years that may count toward that total, too. But no matter how you slice it, its certainly an impressive milestone for the…

The last time we saw Samsungs foldable on-stage, it was, quite literally, shrouded in darkness. The company debuted a prototype of the upcoming device at a developer conference, showing its folding method and little else. As promised, the Galaxy Fold (not to be confused with the Ford Galaxie, mind) got a lot more face time […]
Samsung just announced a lot of phones four major variants of the Galaxy S10, as a matter of fact. The S10e is the most interesting of the bunch or at least the most interesting one that doesnt sport 5G. The handset is the budget variant of the flagship. In other words, its sort […]
In what may well be the most Samsung move in Samsung history, Samsung just introduced four new Samsung S10 models. For the 10th anniversary of the flagship line, Samsung is going all in on this thing. And with more information expected on Samsungs upcoming foldable, well, thats a lot of Samsungs, Samsung. Before we dive […]
Samsung’s S10 lineup features a whopping four models, the S10e, the S10, the S10+ and the S10 5G. Unsurprisingly, one of the features that differentiates these models is the camera system. Gone are the days, after all, where one camera would suffice. Now, all the S10 models, except for the budget S10e, feature at least […]
Word around the rumor mill suggested Samsung was about to announce a phone with a ridiculous one terabyte of storage built right in, and sure enough: it did. Samsung announced four different variations of the Galaxy S10 today the S10e, the S10, the S10+, and the S10 5G. That third one, the S10+, is […]
After a seemingly endless stream of leaks over the past few weeks, there was essentially zero doubt that Samsung was announcing amongst a bunch of other things a new pair of wireless earbuds called the “Galaxy Buds” today. Here they are. Samsung says the Galaxy Buds should be able to pull around 5 […]
Samsung just announced not one, not two, but four new additions to its flagship Galaxy line: the S10e, S10, S10+, and S10 5G. Want a quick at-a-glance breakdown of how they all compare? We’ve got you covered.
After weeks of leaks, Samsung still managed to save some surprises for todays event. One of the most interesting among them is a partnership with Instagram that brings Stories directly to the camera app. Its an interesting partnership and mutually beneficial for both parties. For some, it could signal a kind of return to pre-loaded […]
It’s hard to believe, but it’s actually been 10 years now since Samsung released the first iteration of the Galaxy line of phones. The Galaxy S started a wave of success for Samsung that continued on in its various iterations over the years.
Today, in a slight change of pace, Samsung is holding the launch event of the new Galaxy S10 out in San Franciso – a few days earlier than the usual Barcelona/MWC unveiling.
The Galaxy S10 represents a new design iteration for Samsung, updating the “characteristic” look that the company tends to maintain for two generations. This year, Samsung does not only change venue as well as its product design, it also mixes up the traditional model line-up with the introduction of a new lower-end Galaxy S10 model.
Today’s announcement covers the new Galaxy S10e, the Galaxy S10 and the Galaxy S10+, representing a trio of devices celebrating the 10 year anniversary of Samsung’s flagship line-up.
As is tradition, the easiest way to talk about what’s announced today is to present the specification sheets of the three models and dive into the differentiation factors between the different models:
Over 100,000 marine animals die every year after getting trapped in plastic, but this little fish got lucky. A diver in Phuket, Thailand found the creature trapped in a plastic bag and, after a bit of gentle shaking and maneuvering, was able to free set it free. It might just be a tiny fish, but I was sitting on the edge of my seat watching this video. Read the rest

As knock-off AirPower pads go, this one is pretty lame. Anker is asking for $54 for the ability to charge a single device, plus an Apple Watch (assuming you thread a not-included $29 Apple Watch charging cable into the charging pad). Power is supplied by a Micro USB cable, despite the fact that this was released in 2019. The pad itself appears to just be a hunk of plastic. There are cheaper and better-looking options out there.
Samsung might be dominating the feed today with the introduction of its new Galaxy phones, but there are a few deals that you should know about.
