Samsung on Wednesday launched its 10th anniversary Galaxy S series — the Galaxy S10+, S10 and S10e — in India after unveiling the trio at an event in San Francisco last month.

The smartphones bring the company’s new “Infinity-O” screen which is a tiny cut-out for the camera hole on top of the display. That means users don’t have any sort of “notch” as you see on iPhones.


“Pre-bookings for the Galaxy S10 are twice as much as S9. S10 brings the world’s first ‘Infinity O’ screen on AMOLED,” Mohandeep Singh, Senior Vice President, Mobile Business, Samsung India, told reporters here.

Galaxy S10+ would be available in 1TB, 512GB and 128GB storage variants for Rs 1,17,900, Rs 91,900 and Rs 73,900, respectively.

Galaxy S10’s 512GB variant is priced at Rs 84,900 whereas the 128GB variant will cost Rs 66,900. Galaxy S10e comes with only 128GB storage variant for Rs 55,900.

The three smartphones, being manufactured in India, would be available across select retail stores and online platforms, starting March 8.

New additions to the series include a Wireless PowerShare and in-display Ultrasonic Fingerprint Scanner (only on Galaxy S10+ and S10).

“Leveraging a decade of industry leadership, the Galaxy S10 line is built on our legacy of unparalleled innovation to deliver an exceptional user experience to consumers,” said DJ Koh, President and CEO of IT and Mobile Communications Division, Samsung Electronics.

The 5.8-inch Galaxy S10e, 6.1-inch Galaxy S10 and 6.4-inch Galaxy S10+ feature the world’s first “Dynamic AMOLED” display.

Galaxy S10 supports HDR10+ content and delivers vivid digital content and dynamic tone mapping. Embedded directly beneath the screen is the in-display Ultrasonic Fingerprint Scanner that reads the 3D contours of a physical thumbprint, for improved anti-spoofing, allowing the phone to be unlocked securely and intuitively.

Galaxy S10 and S10+ feature a triple camera module design. The main camera module has a 12 MP sensor and a dual-aperture lens that varies between an f/1.5 and f/2.4 aperture.

The secondary camera is a 12 MP 2x telephoto lens, with an f/2.4 lens. The devices come with an ultra-wide-angle 16 MP lens and a 123-degree Field of View (FoV).

The Galaxy S10 will come with a new and improved version of ‘Make for India’ Bixby Vision. (IANS)

The aim of the book is to teach children that families can exist in different forms, and show them how to accept the diversity in family backgrounds.

By Siddhi Jain

Delhi-based author Pritisha Borthakur is set to release her new book, 'Puhor and Niyor's Mural of Family Stories'. The 1,404-word children's book was put together to address a new kind of societal debacle in the family system. The author says the aim is to teach children that families can exist in different forms, and show them how to accept the diversity in family backgrounds.

The author who named the book after her twin sons -- Puhor and Niyor -- is a parent who has seen and heard the tales of ridicule and discrimination suffered by many in India and beyond. She says the book is an artistic illustration for kids that details how different families can live and coexist. Whether it's children with two dads or two moms, children with a single dad or single mom, and even multiracial family units, Borthakur's book teaches love, understanding, and compassion towards unconventional families.

Beyond race, gender, color, and ethnicity which have formed the bases for discrimination since the beginning of time, this book aims to bring to light a largely ignored issue. For so long, single parents have been treated like a taboo without any attempt to understand their situations; no one really cares how or why one's marriage ended but just wants to treat single parents as villains simply for choosing happiness and loving their children.

Homosexual parents, a relatively new family system, is another form that has suffered hate and discrimination for many years. Pritisha emphasizes the need to understand that diversity in people and family is what makes the world beautiful and colourful. 'Puhor and Niyor's Mural of Family Stories' is a firm but compassionate statement against all forms of discrimination on the bases of sexual identity, gender, race, and even differences in background

Clean and maintained hands boost confidence in daily life activities.

If you feel that clean and well-groomed hands are just an essential prerequisite for women, you might like to think twice. Men should equally pay attention to their hands because our hand houses 1,500 bacteria living on each square centimeter of its skin. You can easily assume what havoc it can create in our body because in India we have the culture of eating with our hands and spaces beneath nails can become breeding heaven for germs. Moreover, clean and maintained hands boost confidence in their daily life activities. Therefore, it's important to keep your hands clean irrespective of your gender by washing or sanitizing at regular intervals. And, to keep them groomed, you don't have to visit a salon.

Rajesh U Pandya, Managing Director, KAI India, gives easy and completely doable tips to follow at home:

* Refrain from harsh soaps: You should be mindful of the soap you are using to wash your hands. Your soap can have a moisturizing element in it like aloe vera or shea butter. Ensure that you're washing your hands with normal water as hot water can make your hand's skin dry and scaly.
