Samsung Galaxy S10 Line: Four Batteries, Four Stories

Samsung had introduced its Galaxy S10 series of devices quite recently, after weeks of intensive rumors. We’ve already talked about the Galaxy S10 series in detail, in our official announcement, and are here to take a closer look at one specific aspect of the Galaxy S10e, S10, S10+, and S10 5G, their batteries and connected technology. All four of these devices come with different battery packs, of course, as they’re all different in size, and even specifications. Other than sheer battery size / capacity, however, these three phones have plenty in common when it comes to their batteries.

Battery Size

All three Galaxy S10 handsets include non-removable Li-Ion batteries, the Galaxy S10 is the smallest Galaxy S10-branded phone, and it comes with a 3,100mAh unit. The Galaxy S10 includes a 3,400mAh battery, while the Galaxy S10+ comes with a 4,100mAh unit. The largest Galaxy S10 handset, the S10 5G, features a 4,500mAh unit. The Galaxy S10e, S10, S10+, and S10 5G ship with 5.8-inch, 6.1-inch, 6.4-inch, and 6.7-inch displays, respectively.


The Galaxy S10e has a fullHD+ display, unlike the Galaxy S10, S10+, and S10 5G, which includes QHD+ panels. These battery sizes are not exactly huge considering display size and resolution on these four phones, but they do not seem to be all that small either, it all depends on how well is the software on the device optimized. When it comes to the Galaxy S10 5G, its 5G connectivity will also play a role in battery consumption, once you get access to 5G connectivity, of course.

Charging Info & Features

In terms of charging, all four phones support fast wired and wireless charging. When it comes to the Galaxy S10e, S10, and S10+, we’re looking at Fast Charging (as Samsung calls it), in terms of wired charging. Wired Charging compatible with Quick Charge 2.0, while they also feature what Samsung calls “Wireless Power Share”. This essentially means that the devices are capable of wirelessly charge other Qi-certified smartphones, Wireless Power Share is Samsung’s branding for reverse charging.


The Samsung Galaxy S10 5G also supports Wireless Power Share, but unlike the other three devices, it comes with Super Fast Charging. When wired charging is concerned, it is compatible with Quick Charge 2.0, AFC, and PD3.0, and wireless charging is improved by Fast Wireless Charging 2.0 on all Galaxy S10 smartphones. If you charge two devices simultaneously, though, Fast Wireless Charging 2.0 may not be available, noted the company. The company did not exactly give out any battery estimates when it comes to these four smartphones, though, as this is all the information that we have at the moment when it comes to their batteries and connected tech.

It is worth saying that Samsung emphasizes “AI software” which optimizes battery consumption on all Galaxy S10 handsets, so it remains to be seen how will it affect battery life over time. On top of that, all Galaxy S10 phones support Wi-Fi 6 standard, which should result in a better Wi-Fi performance when connected to a compatible router, and better connectivity overall with less interruptions.
