Samsung Galaxy S10e: one less camera for an equally powerful variant, but more affordable and compact

In recent years Samsung has presented its high-end terminals in pairs, but this time the Galaxy S10 and Galaxy S10 + are accompanied by two striking models. The S10 5G is for that support of 5G networks, but the real surprise of the industry may be in the Samsung Galaxy S10e.

This is a model that makes some sacrifices in size and performance: we get rid of the "tele" sensor and the fingerprint reader under the screen, but in almost everything else this model shares the virtues of its older brothers, and that could end up turning it in all a success by Samsung.

Update: the analysis of the Galaxy s10e is already available in depth

A compact and flat design

We are before the "little" family: the 5.8 inches that a few years ago would have triggered the dimensions of other designs are very well delimited by that design without frames that reuses the hole (only one in this case) on screen for the front camera. The frame disappears, but we still have a slight bottom frame.

Those dimensions are precisely one of the differential elements of a variant that also stands out from one of Samsung's hallmarks. The curved screen disappears on the Galaxy S10e to become a flat screen.

We also do not have the fingerprint sensor under the screen, and here Samsung makes a peculiar decision by placing the capacitive fingerprint sensor not on the back as usual, but on the side, as Sony has repeatedly done. The slimness of the S10e (7.9 mm) makes the space reserved for that sensor somewhat scarce, but it will have to be seen if in tests this is enough to offer a good user experience.

There are also changes in the orientation of the rear cameras that have been placed horizontally and that logically take up less space than other models. This Galaxy S10e also has a color exclusive to itself: "Canary Yellow", a very bright and cheerful yellow that certainly attracts attention.

Despite the sacrifices this is still an S10, whether it has a surname or not

The concessions that Samsung has made with this affordable variant are certainly excusable. For starters, the most relevant: we return to the dual camera of past models instead of the triple camera that is part of the S10 and S10 +.

Specifically, the telephoto lens disappears, a noticeable absence but that does not have to have a significant impact on the performance of the photographic section except in that option of the optical zoom.

The other sacrifice we see on the screen, whose resolution is slightly reduced. It is not a dramatic sacrifice either since the screen diagonal is not so great, but also that will help improve autonomy. Precisely the battery is somewhat conditioned by the reduction in dimensions, and in this specific model we have a capacity of 3,100 mAh.

For the rest, we are facing a terminal that benefits from the same processor (in our region, the Exynos 9820) as its older brothers, and that also has facial recognition, fast charging, Wireless PowerShare and storage capacities: we forgot about the 64 Starting GB of previous and we jump to a base capacity of 128 GB.

We are therefore with a very interesting model despite these small cuts in both size and performance, and Samsung may have had a great idea with a model that retains much of the virtues of its older brothers.
