The company’s newest flagship, Samsung Galaxy S10, has a lot of impressive features. It has a 6.1-inch QHD+ Dynamic AMOLED curved screen with a relatively compact frame due to its slim bezels. The S10 also has a triple-lens rear camera that is made up of a 16MP ultra-wide lens, a 12MP telephoto lens and a 12MP dual aperture wide-angle lens with OIS. For selfies, there is a 10MP front-facing camera, also with dual aperture.

This new phone also features a new design, with a punch-hole in the screen to accommodate the 10MP front-facing camera. The S10 phones also support Fast Wireless Charging 2.0 and Wi-Fi 6. The world’s first ultrasonic in-screen fingerprint scanner is also built into the display.

Powered with a top-end chipset, 8GB of RAM and up to 512GB of storage, the Samsung Galaxy S10 packs a punch. It also has a battery capacity of 3,400 mAh.

The S10, S10 Plus (128GB) and S10E will be available in three colors – Prism White, Prism Black, and Prism Green. The higher capacity S10 Plus models (512GB and 1TB) only comes in Ceramic White and Ceramic Black.

Prices for the device start at S$1,078 for the S10E to S$2,198 for the S10 Plus (1TB), hitting Singapore stores on 8 March. It will also be launched in the States on the same day at US$749 for the S10E, US$899 for the S10, and US$999 for the S10 Plus.

Galaxy S10 Plus

Other than the Galaxy S10, Samsung has also announced the larger Samsung Galaxy S10 Plus with a larger curved 6.4-inch QHD+ AMOLED screen. Not only it has a large screen, but it also has a bigger battery of 4,100mAh.

Besides the same triple-camera setup, the S10 Plus adds a second selfie lens to augment that 10MP camera with an 8MP sensor that can help to take depth-mode portrait selfies. The power of the S10 Plus is also up a notch with up to 12GB of RAM and 1TB of storage.

Galaxy Watch Active

Samsung spent more than 90 minutes talking about its new Galaxy S10 phones that are coming out this year. With the phones out of the way, a sporty new smartwatch called the Samsung Galaxy Watch Active was also unveiled. The Galaxy Watch Active is the latest smartwatch running on Samsung’s proprietary Tizen Based Wearable OS 4.0, and it will hit the shelves in the States on 8 March at US$199.99.

In short, it is a sportier version to the Samsung Galaxy Watch launched in mid 2018. The Active is a lot more comfortable to wear than the Galaxy Watch as it is made of a lightweight form of aluminum. It also relies on its touchscreen and two side buttons for navigation.

It features a round face and comes with customizable watch faces that combine style and sensibility. Key features include a heart-rate monitor (that can also measure your stress levels), ability to integrate with the Samsung Health app, tracks your four stages of sleep and water-resistance to depths of 50 meters.

It’s more than just a fitness band, as it can also access apps and receive smartphone notifications, connecting you to a world of entertainment right from your wrist.

Samsung Galaxy Buds

Like its new phones, Samsung’s latest true wireless earbuds weren’t exactly a secret. These are wireless earbuds that are set to compete with the likes of the Apple AirPods.

The Galaxy Buds look similar to the IconX that was released in 2017, but these are 30 percent smaller and boast a more ergonomic design.

With premium sound by AKG, the Galaxy Buds provide a balanced and natural sound with excellent dynamic range and superb accuracy, which means every word and note you listen to sound stellar.

Like many wireless headphones in the market, the Galaxy Buds have an Ambient Sound mode that will pipe in audio from the world around you. There’s also a Quick Ambient Mode that you can activate with a tap to allow you to have a quick word with someone or be aware of traffic when you’re out walking.

The Buds themselves can last for six hours of play time, and the charging case acts as a wireless charger that can provide up to an additional seven hours.

The Galaxy Buds also features IPX2 splash-resistant technology which means that they can handle splashes, a little sweat and even the accidental spill, great for any outdoor activities.

The Galaxy Buds will be available in the States at US$130 when they go on sale at the end of March. They will be available in Singapore, starting 30 March at S$238 and they’ll be available in black, white and yellow.
