    Design and Display

    The Galaxy S10e arrives with smaller 5.8-inch Full-HD+ Flat Dynamic AMOLED Infinity-O Display with 522PPI. Anyways, all the Galaxy S10 series comes with Infinity-O Display panels.

    The “Dynamic AMOLED Infinity-O display” is also available on all the Galaxy S10 series. That means, the S10e considered a little bit among the series.

    Samsung’s Galaxy S10, Galaxy S10 Plus. S10 5G and S10e are the world first phone with HDR10+ certified displays with a peak brightness of 1,200 nits. The displays are touted to have blue light reduction features, apart from improved colour accuracy, and outdoor visibility.

    Well, for the biometric sensor, the Galaxy S10e did not arrive with the trending Ultrasonic fingerprint, that built straight into the display in the likes of S10, S10+ and S10 5G.

    But the Samsung Galaxy S10e comes sports a side-fingerprint sensor on the home button. And the company boasts that the model offers a “premium experience in a compact size.”

    It also comes with IP68 water protection and can wirelessly charge other devices. These are premium specs for the Galaxy S10e.

    Camera and Connectivity

    The Samsung Galaxy S10e rear setup is totally different from the Galaxy S10 and Galaxy S10+. Where you’ll find a dual-rear camera instead of the S10 series triple cameras at the back.

    At the back, sits a 12-megapixel wide-angle camera and a 16-megapixel ultra-wide lens with a 123-degree field of view.

    While the hole-punch at the front houses a 10-megapixel sensor couple with 2PD autofocus, an f/1.9 aperture, and 80-degree lens.
