Editor’s note, March 9, 2019: Our Galaxy S10 Plus review is now live and our Galaxy S10E review is under way. Keep reading for more about the Galaxy S10, S10 E, S10 Plus and Galaxy S10 5G. And here’s more about the Galaxy Fold, Samsung’s first foldable phone.

February was a busy month for Samsung. In addition to giving another sneak peek at its Galaxy Fold foldable phone, the company took the wraps off four(!) Galaxy S10 phones: the Galaxy S10, the Galaxy S10 Plus, the Galaxy S10E and the Galaxy S10 5G. The new family of handsets not only serve as the successors to last year’s popular Galaxy S9 phones, but one of the S10 phones is also compatible with the next generation of mobile network known as 5G.

The main flagship devices are the Galaxy S10 and S10 Plus and will go on sale March 8. The S10 features a 6.1-inch display, three rear cameras and a single front-facing camera. The S10 Plus, meanwhile, is a bit larger with a 6.4-inch screen. The bigger display is accommodated with a higher-capacity battery (a 4,100-mAh battery compared to the Galaxy S10’s 3,400-mAh one). It, too, has three rear cameras, but Samsung added a second 8-megapixel front-facing camera.

Both phones are larger than last year’s Galaxy S9, which had a 5.8-inch screen. The Galaxy S9 also only had a single 12-megapixel rear camera, a Snapdragon 845 processor and less expandable memory (up to 400GB compared to the Galaxy S10s’ 512GB). The Galaxy S9 had a smaller, third memory option too. It had a 64GB tier, while the Galaxy S10 and S10 Plus start at 128GB and 512GB, respectively.

New to the Galaxy lineup is the Galaxy S10E. Though it still has a premium $750 price tag, it’s not as expensive as the Galaxy S10 and the S10 Plus. With its 5.8-inch screen it’s slightly smaller than the rest and has a smaller-capacity 3,100-mAh battery. It only has dual rear cameras and, like the Galaxy S10, a single front-facing shooter.
