Galaxy S10 5G camera, 5G demo at MWC 2019

Phones
[MUSIC]. It's the first official day of mwc. I've come to Samsung's Booth an hour early before it opens in for the mobs. Come to see what the Samsung Galaxy fold looks like in person. And here it is behind glass. Unfortunately, it is imprisoned there, it wants to be free, these cordons didn't exist even five minutes ago, Samsung just put them up. So I could get even closer but to be honest the glass is so reflective there's nothing that I could learn that I didn't already know. That's such a disappointment because there's so much energy around foldable phones right now. Yesterday Huawei announced a a competitor device called the Huawei Mate X. And we actually got a chance to see that. My colleague Roger Chang was able to hold it in his hands. We got to see it being demoed in front of us as well. Not so with the Galaxy Fold. It is really just here and you really can't see anything else. You can see the front, you can see the back. There's no demo there's nobody holding it and showing you the bend and showing you the hinge. So right now I've gotta say it's kind of advantage Huawei even though that device isn't even gonna come out until June. Meanwhile the Samsung Galaxy fold has an April 26th launch date and there is really nothing about it that we can. Gonna see for ourselves. [MUSIC] Okay so it's no Galaxy Fold, but I am still pretty excited about the phone that I am holding in my hand. The Galaxy S10 5G, and in my earlier demo I was only allowed to look at it, and it didn't turn on. So now I'm holding it, the screen is on, and this is a real live working demo. So that's nice. All right, so just a run through the specs again. You've got that infinity-O display with the two cameras on the front. So you've got the sort of a capsule cut out, then there are the four cameras on the back. You've got your 12 megapixel, regular wide angle lens The 16 megapixel ultra-wide angle lens, 12 megapixel [UNKNOWN] photo lens, and then the 3D [UNKNOWN] camera. There's the ultrasonic fingerprint reader here. We've got 256 gigabytes of onboard storage. No micro-SD card slot though. And three color choices. Silver, titan, [UNKNOWN[ and gold. But there are two important things that I wanna point out about this phone. It's not the color or how slim it is, although both of those are very nice things. Actually the first is that there's a time of flight sensor. A 3D camera sensor on both the front and the back. And that's gonna enable some depth mapping effects, that don't exist on this Galaxy S10 plus. Only on the 5G phone. So one example is going to be live focus video, that's basically taking a portrait mode video without bouquet effect, not just for photos anymore. So now for the camera features, we are gonna take a look at Instagram mode, which is now baked into the Galaxy S10 experience. You snap your picture And you're able to scroll through all of the filters, one for one, exactly like Instagram, send it to people, create a story, pretty simple stuff. But what I'm really excited about is Live focus video. This is basically the ability to take a portrait-mode video of someone or something. So even here you can see, this isn't a person but this is the 5G sign. So we can use the slider to see the difference between nobler and quite a lot of background and blur. Know that you'll really struck when you're outside or taking photos of people. Of course the second thing we're gonna look at is a live 5G demo because hey Is a 5G phone. [MUSIC] Here we are with the Galaxy S10 5G running a live demo of 5G on this phone here. I can't really move the unit, and there's not really much see it's streaming a baseball game. There is a base station unit in a different hall over there that they are not going to let us see, but this is real antenna equipment down here and we are assured that this is live. There are several live 5G demos around the booths here at MWC. This is one of them At first glance it doesn't look like there's much difference between what we're seeing on this phone, and what we're seeing on a canned demo on a 4G phone. But when you pull down the notification tray, and you take a look at the network, you will see that it says 5G. [MUSIC] [MUSIC] Okay, so we came for the Galaxy fold, which we didn't really see, we say for the Galaxy has 10 5g, which didn't see, but the really 4 5g demo, got a chance to try out Instagram mode, which was simless and great, also got a chance to try out live focus video for the front and rear cameras, and although i think there is potential to make these videos. Really pop, I think that Samsung still has a little bit more work to do to make that really seamless. We got a lot of blur when we were testing it out. Somebody said that it made it look like we were in a steam room. When people are moving around you start losing parts of their face Parts of their body, and it becomes a lot harder I think for the camera to determine what the central image is versus the background, especially when you've got multiple people and objects coming into it. So a lot of really exciting stuff here. Stick with us, much more MWC coverage.
