How do I tell if a model of phone will work with Koodo before buying it?

It seems like the only way I can find to identify if a phone will work on Koodo is to have the IMEI id but I would prefer to know BEFORE I buy a phone if it will work with Koodo or not.

I am looking at getting a Samsung Galaxy S10e international version with the Exynos chip (not snapdragon like the one that Koodo sells) and I wanted to make sure that it would work with Koodo since I know some times specific versions of phones can't pick up on every carrier's network depending on what country you're in.

You can often check phone compatibility at willmyphonework.net as well, although the s10 series is not listed just yet.
