The purported Galaxy S10E could be one of the most exciting announcements that Samsung makes on February 20. The Galaxy S10E, which is said to be Samsung’s take on the iPhone XR, has leaked multiple times and now a new leaked poster has re-confirmed its positioning in the 2019 Galaxy S10 lineup. The Galaxy S10E is said to bring “premium fun for everyone” corroborating past rumors of its iPhone XR-like credentials.
Not only will the Galaxy S10E reportedly cost less than its more premium siblings, aka the Galaxy S10 and Galaxy S10+, it will also be available in a slew of attractive colors, including canary yellow (which is said to be exclusive to the Galaxy S10E). The leaked poster seemingly confirms both these aspects.
The iPhone XR also comes in yellow, but Apple uses this subtle hue that doesn’t really jump at you like say its RED variant. Samsung’s canary yellow however seems more out-there, fluorescent neon to an extent, the kind that would be hard to ignore. The outer frame seems to have this golden tinge inspired from the iPhone XR. Samsung is also probably giving it a matte finish like Apple.
Being an affordable option means, the Galaxy S10E will cut some corners. It will reportedly come with a smaller 5.8-inch screen with a flatter bezel. The Galaxy S10E is also said to pack a conventional fingerprint scanner as opposed to the Galaxy S10 and Galaxy S10+ which will come with in-display fingerprint scanners. In the Galaxy S10E, the power button on the side will double as a fingerprint scanner. Lastly, the Galaxy S10E is said to come with dual rear cameras and will be powered by a smaller 3,100mAh battery as well.
The Galaxy S10E is expected to have the same core innards though - which means, the same Exynos and Qualcomm chips and possibly the same primary rear and front cameras. It will reportedly come with up to 8GB RAM and 256GB storage. It is also said to retain Samsung’s new Infinity-O notch display which means, much like the Galaxy S10 and Galaxy S10+, the Galaxy S10E will also have a punch-hole selfie camera.
