All four models run Android 9.0 Pie. Samsung Galaxy S10 5G brings the most innovation / new features with 5G cellular network support, and six cameras including two 3D ToF depth cameras for the capture of 3D images with both rear and front-facing cameras.

Samsung Galaxy S10e is up for pre-order for $749 and up, Galaxy S10 for $899 and up, while Galaxy S10+ goes for $999 and up with shipping starting on March 8th. Galaxy S10 5G is coming later this year at an undisclosed price. A few websites had the change to have a quick look at the phones including Ars Technica, Engadget, and Android Central among others. Samsung also have published an infographic comparing the specs of Galaxy S10+ with last year’s Galaxy S9+. If you have time to spare, you could also watch the entire 2-hour+ Galaxy Unpacked event.

In case the $800+ price tag scares you, but you’d still like a Snapdragon 855 phone, Xiaomi Mi 9 was introduced on the same day, and will sells for just 2999 RMB and up in China, or about $450.
