“As an industry leader, Samsung has been committed to delivering groundbreaking innovations for a decade, bringing a superior smart mobile experience to consumers. This year, we are very pleased to offer the Galaxy S10 series, which excels in display, camera and performance. Not only does the Galaxy S10 series celebrate the 10th year since the launch of Galaxy S, but it also redefines the world’s smartphone standards. We specially designed three models for the Galaxy S10 in hopes of meeting the needs of different consumers by offering users a variety of options for the best value,” says Ms. Yiyin Zhao, Managing Director of Samsung Electronics H.K.

The First Dynamic AMOLED Display Offering a Full-Screen Cinematic Experience

The Galaxy S10 series comprises of the world’s first smartphones to feature Dynamic AMOLED display that supports HDR10+ [1] with Dynamic Tone Mapping, creating a full-screen cinematic experience. This display delivers vivid digital content, a wider spectrum of colors and sharper contrasts, presenting users with very realistic images. Even in dark environments, users can see an amazing range of colors 

- Dynamic AMOLED Display: The Galaxy S10 series has further improved the clarity and brightness of display, which is suitable for outdoor use. The Dynamic AMOLED display has a screen brightness of up to 800nits, which is a 14% increase in comparison to the Galaxy S9, allowing users to savor every image detail under bright sunlight. Moreover, the Galaxy S10 series features the most up-to-date technology that protects users’ vision from harmful blue light, whilst maintaining the original color tone of videos and images.
- Infinity-O Display: Galaxy S10 series features the Infinity-O display, which deploys fingerprint sensor embedded beneath the display for unlocking. This maximizes the screen with a 19:9 aspect ratio to enable full-screen experience. 

Ultrasonic Fingerprint Sensor: The Dynamic AMOLED display of the Galaxy S10 series features the first ultrasonic fingerprint sensor, [2] allowing users to scan their fingerprints with 3D characteristics, which improves its recognition ability in comparison to the old 2D sensor. The Galaxy S10 and S10+ are capable of recognizing inorganic 2D fingerprint copies. The fingerprint sensor is very user friendly; when needed, the fingerprint guide would appear on the screen and users would only have to place their fingers on the image to unlock the screen. The powerful ultrasonic sensor also recognizes fingerprints even with humidity, sunlight and ambient temperature changes.

Also, Local Tone Mapping [3] technology improves the expression of highlights and shadows, making photos more professional. Shot Suggestion is a feature that references a database of over 100 million photos and shows the ideal composition to aid users in taking the best shots. Moreover, the Bright Night shooting effect allows users to combine up to seven photos of different exposures to create a single composite photo, allowing night scenes to be captured exquisitely. By using dual cameras in the Galaxy S10+ and Neural Processing Units in the Galaxy S10e and S10, users can preview the Artistic Live Focus effects, which includes features to blur, spin, zoom and color point their photos.
- Super Steady and High-Quality Video Shooting: Whether the user is in a bright or dark environment, the Galaxy S10 series allows users to clearly capture the outline of each subject to provide the most intricate details. The 10-bit encoding allows users to capture the most detailed color expression in their videos. When filming active videos, the Galaxy S10 series has a unique Super Steady [4] feature and ultra wide angle with 75.6-degree angle of view to increase its stability, allowing users to capture every thrilling moment that matches the quality of a professional-level action camera. Whilst users are walking or engaging in low-activity sports, the normal VDIS [5] is applied to the various rear cameras.
- AR Emoji: The all-new AR Emoji feature gives users a stylish appearance and 167 kinds of facial expressions that track users’ face, eyes, tongue and body movements. To enable users to create more interesting AR Emoji, Samsung specially developed AR World Store for users to download accessories, hairstyles, clothing and Disney characters. In addition, users can shoot their AR Emoji either on a virtual background or a real background, and add accessories freely. There are three shooting modes – Basic, Mask and Mini Motion – that will be very popular for the different and interesting experiences offered
