Samsung Galaxy S10e (SIM Free / UK)
If purchasing for use outside of the EU, you may wish to read the information regarding the international region lock on new Samsung stock - please refer to the end of this description.
The result of 10 years of pioneering mobile firsts, the Galaxy S10e, S10, and S10+ introduce the next generation of mobile innovation.
Samsung S10e SIM Free & Unlocked Prices
When you order a Samsung Galaxy S10e from Clove Technology, you will receive an official UK or EU specification SIM Free handset.
All of our phones are factory unlocked and ready for use with UK, EU & most global SIM cards.
The phones have support for global GSM & 3G networks; for 4G / LTE support outside of the EU, please check the specifications.
Where a product option states "EU Model", it will have been sourced directly from a European supplier. These phones should come factory sealed with the original Samsung Adaptive Fast Charger (Europlug 2-pin).
Where a product states "EU Convert", it will have been sourced from a UK supplier that has imported EU stock and converted it for UK sale. These phones will be resealed with official Samsung branding and should contain a standard UK charger (3-pin). Please note this may not be the official Samsung Adaptive Fast Charger.
If you order an EU Model or Convert then you may find that Samsung Pay is unavailable, even if it is supported in your country.
This is because Samsung restricts the use of Samsung Pay so that it only works with banks registered in the same country as the phone's origin. The origin country is recorded in the phone's firmware and cannot be adjusted by end users. At this time we are unable to advertise the exact origin country of EU Models prior to sale.
If you require the use of Samsung Pay in the UK, we would recommend avoiding an EU Model or Convert, although if Google Pay is available and acceptable to you, this will be available to download and unaffected.
Dual SIM options
Samsung manufactures the Galaxy S10e in both single & hybrid dual SIM versions. If an option for sale on Clove Technology specifies "DUAL SIM" then it has the hybrid slot. If DUAL SIM is not mentioned in the option, please assume that it is the single SIM version of the handset.

Samsung S10e SIM Free Overview
For the tenth anniversary of the Galaxy S, Samsung have redesigned their screen technology, deeply incorporated AI and machine learning, as well as embraced emerging technologies that will shape the future of wireless communications.
Samsung's original Infinity display showed the world what smartphones could look like if they moved on from traditional resolutions and ratios.
This had led to the recent explosion of devices with edge-to-edge displays, often featuring a notch or an asymmetric bezel design. Both of these solutions have not found much favour with reviewers and discerning consumers.
With the Galaxy S10 range, the all-new Infinity-O display approaches things differently. Infinity-O wraps to the very edges of the handset, and pushes as far to the top, bottom and corners as possible.
So where are the selfie camera and sensors? Embedded underneath the screen, and visible through a circular cut-out. This has been achieved using an incredibly precise laser cutting method, designed to remove a section of the already-manufactured AMOLED panel, without damaging the surrounding pixels.
Inifinty-O Display isn't just large and bright though. New Dynamic AMOLED technology is HDR10+ certified for incredibly accurate colour representation and deep contrast. Brightness levels have improved for outdoor viewing in daylight, plus blue light levels are naturally reduced in all lighting conditions to make for a more comfortable viewing experience.
Next Generation Camera
On the main camera array of the S10 range, you'll find 3 separate lenses: 1x 12MP telephoto, 1x 12MP wide-angle and 16MP ultra-wide lens.
The S9's Dual Aperture feature has been optimised, reacting to ambient light and adjusting light input to allow for exceptional low-light images. S10's incredible processing power also combines several frames of low-light photography instantly to deliver an improved composite image.
Rather than combining the effects of all three lenses for composite shots, they are used separately to produce different results. In the same way that a professional photographer may change lenses to suit the shooting scenario, you too can now pick the right tool for the job.
The standard wide-angle lens is the basis for most automatic shots. This can be combined with the telephoto lens for 2x optical. It is the ultra-wide lens though that shows the most improvement. Particularly useful for taking landscape imagery, panoramas and big group shots, ultra-wide offers a 123-degree FOV with increased verticality and no edge distortion.
Machine learning in the camera software also recognises specific subjects. Making decisions based on what you're shooting, where and in what light, S10 can offer suggestions & tips on composition and shooting angle.
High-quality video recording is among the most intensive applications a modern smartphone can be engaged in. Producing a consistent and steady video at high resolutions requires not only a good camera but also a lot of processing power.
With a top-class octa-core processor and AI enhancements, Samsung has developed some of the smoothest, high-res video recording available on an Android smartphone. Even the front-facing camera is capable of 4K UHD recording.
Hi-Motion video is available when recording in Full HD with the Ultrawide camera. The additional data from the wide lens, coupled with predictive software minimises motion blur and artefacts when recording fast-moving subjects. Real-time colour correction ensures backgrounds and secondary subjects don't get washed out or suffer from a lack of focus.
In keeping with the screen quality of the handset, S10 also records in 4K UHD and HD10+. So everything you capture can be played back in front of you just as intended. No longer do you need to copy a file off to a more powerful desktop to see the full extent off your phone's recording capabilities.
Super Slow-mo has also been improved. The original 960 fps shooting mode now has high-definition support, alongside editing tools to grab, trim and share sections of the video.
Samsung has implemented the current fastest version of wireless charging into the S10 range. With compatible docks and chargers, you can top up your handset twice as fast as before.
This system also allows you to share your phone's battery with other devices using PowerShare. Doing so can top up other Galaxy handsets, as well as accessories such as smartwatches and fitness bands.
Wi-Fi 6 will soon be available in commercial routers and in public access spaces. Otherwise known as 802.11ax, Wi-Fi 6 is a next-generation technology offering higher transfer speeds, bandwidth and better performance in areas of high-volume usage such as stadiums and shopping malls. It's even proven to increase battery life in portable devices!
If you enter an area with modernised Wi-Fi 6 compatible equipment, Galaxy S10 will connect immediately and seamlessly.
Even better, Galaxy S10 can check the difference in network quality between your current Wi-Fi network and the local mobile network. Should the mobile data speeds around you consistently exceed the Wi-Fi, you can be switched between them automatically (an opt-in process, to protect mobile data charges).
The first major development of Samsung's smartphone UI in several years, OneUI marks a bold step forward. The Samsung UI has been streamlined in the past few years, from a system that was once too feature-rich, into something much more intuitive.
With OneUI, that work has culminated in a new design ethos for Samsung's mobile software experience.
Screen interactions for messages and notifications have been redesigned. Larger target spaces to interact with and better placement on-screen, make it easier for users to react with one hand.
Informative notification cards provide only essential information in a clean and easy-to-read format that delivers only what you need to know about what's important to you.
It's also much easier to customise the notifications you receive from individual apps, with settings options available in any notification card that appears on-screen. Taking control of how the apps on your phone try to grab your attention is another step in ensuring you only focus on the important things throughout your day.
Samsung's new browser also features an option to capture an entire webpage. When you do so, the entire rendered vertical flow is saved as a tall image. You can review the snapshot, or return to the website later with a single tap. This also been implemented into Chrome when running on Galaxy S10.
*Since September 2013, Samsung has implemented a 'region lock' on all new stock. Clove Technology only has access to models designed for the “European” region, which covers both UK and mainland Europe. The compatible countries are listed below**.
For correct operation, this handset should be activated inside one of these countries with a SIM card issued for use there. The device will then be able to accept SIM cards from outside of these countries.
Activation requires turning the device on for the first time & completing set-up with the SIM installed, then completing at least 5 minutes of voice call(s) with this SIM.
Without activation you may still use the device outside of these countries when 'roaming' - using a SIM card from the listed countries.
If this activation procedure is not followed then the device will lock when first attempted to be used with a SIM card from outside of these regions. Local Samsung support may provide a code to unlock such handsets.
**All member states of the E.E.A and the following additional territories: Albania, Andorra, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia (F.Y.R.O.M), Monaco, Montenegro, San Marino, Serbia and Vatican City.
IF YOUR CHOSEN DELIVERY COUNTY IS NOT LISTED, CLOVE TECHNOLOGY WILL BREAK THE SEAL ON THIS DEVICE AND ACTIVATE IT. YOU MUST AGREE TO THIS PROCEDURE IN THE CHECKOUT BEFORE THE SALE WILL COMPLETE.
