    Lets post info here (not seen another thread yet)

    I have a corporate account and look after company phones and have pre-ordered:

    S10e in Black
    S10 128GB in Green
    S10+ 512GB Ceramic Black (likely one I will use/keep)

    Been a while since I've used a Samsung as I stick with the LG V30+ for its wired sound quality but now fancy a change and I get great audio via my Fiio BTR3 LDAC Bluetooth adapter with my SE846's so will use that if the built-in audio is not up to scratch. Not sure if UK gets Snapdragon or Exynos.

    Will post info soon as I get them and compare. Supposedly still getting them 8th March unless EE cock something up.

    One review https://www.whathifi.com/reviews/samsung-galaxy-s10-s10-s10e but still evaluating sound quality.

    Audio Spec (No MQA but Tidal App supports anyway)

    Ultra high quality audio playback
    UHQ 32-bit & DSD64/128 support
    PCM: Up to 32 bits, DSD: DSD64/128
    • *DSD64 and DSD128 playback can be limited depending on the file format.
    Audio playback format


    Dual Audio: connect two Bluetooth devices to the Galaxy S10e, S10, or S10+ to play audio through the two devices simultaneously.

    *The two connected devices may exhibit a slight difference in sound output.


    Found out UK is getting Exynos as normal.

    You forgot to mention the S10+ variant for various markets with 1024 GB and 12 GB RAM. Add their biggest micro SD card and you have 1.5 TB inside your phone.

    I have pre-ordered too and will be getting the Exynos version.

    Any info on audio chip used?

    I didn't mention the range ! I just listed the ones I've ordered :)

    The Title is for all S10 variants (S10e,S10,S10+)

    I preorder this. Will get it on 6 Mar

    Your preorder is for the Exynos model? Looking forward to your listening impressions, especially in comparison to Vivo Nex S :)
  7. musicday
    Lol, S10+ can be bought in 12 GB RAM/1024 GB internal storage.
  8. EirikM
    yes , ord
    Yes preorder s10+ with 12 GB ram 1TB storage. Using it with dex and HP lapdock. :)

    Yes mine is exynos S10+ 128 gb. I got a promotion. very reasonable shocking price. xD I didn't expect much on sound output from 3.5mm but we will see.

    Extract from GSM Arena on S10+ (Exynos unit) audio quality:

    "Audio quality
    The Samsung Galaxy S10+ is an extraordinary phone when it comes to audio reproduction. Its clarity was perfect with an active external amplifier and plugging in headphones had no impact whatsoever - a truly rare feat.

    Volume levels were impressive too - the Galaxy S10+ was among the loudest phones we've heard in both parts of the test. Even the most demanding audiophiles with super high-impedance headphones will have a hard time finding something wrong with the Samsung Galaxy S10+'s audio output."

    Personally, I'm taking it with a pinch of salt. GSMArena' s review for the Nex S received less praise than the S10+; yet, I find Nex S to be the best audiophile smartphone (even preferring it over LG V35, LG V40). Keen to know the listening impressions for S10+....

    Very interesting claim

    Can't wait to read in-depth reviews on Samsung S10. At least, I want to know if it can challenge or even pass V30, V40 .
  13. Extrasensory

    I have never heard about that audio chip(??) name...
