Samsung has finally unveiled its latest Galaxy Note 10 smartphone! This new flagship phone has been the subject of talks among tech enthusiasts for several months prior to its official reveal on August 7th because of the promising features that Samsung had previously hinted at including in the phone. This summer, Samsung not only revealed the much-awaited Note 10 phone but also released the Note 10 Plus right along with it. By taking a look at the actual phones we can tell that they are definitely worth the hype.
The Samsung Note series has the key element of featuring big screens with large displays and the Note 10 and Note 10 Plus are no exception to this. The Note 10 phone has a 6.3 inches edge-to-edge glass display, removing all bezels and leaving just a small circular space for the front camera. While the Note 10 Plus also features a similar display of 6.8 inches, offering a relatively bigger screen. It comes with an AMOLED display that reduces harmful blue light while also maintaining the colour quality of the display.
The Note phones come with Samsung’s S Pen with a more ergonomic design than its predecessors and can be optimised to use as either a note-taking a pen on the phones or as a remote to control other features of the phone by using gesture control. The S Pen is a Bluetooth controlled device that automatically charges while it is inside the phone. This smartpen is definitely a magic wand of sorts as dubbed by many tech experts.
The design of the phone is upper sleek featuring the seamless design of glass and stainless steel provides reverse wireless charging. The side of the phone has curved edges and three buttons for volume and one for power which also enables Samsung’s AI, Bixby.
Both the Note 10 and Note 10 Plus smartphones feature Exynos 9825 chipset with the latest Android 9.0 Pie OS. The Note 10 has an 8 GB RAM while 10 Plus has a 12 GB RAM and 256 GB built-in storage for both phones with Note 10 Plus having expandable storage. The triple camera set up features an ultra-wide – 16 MP, a wide – 12 MP and a telephoto – 12 MP lens. Samsung has gone a step further with these phones and removed the headphone jack and instead made it compatible with USB Type-C headphones. It is, however, debatable whether that is a good choice or not. Although a set of USB Type-C headphones has been included in the box with the phones. When talking about battery, the Note 10 has a 3500 mAh battery while the Note 10 Plus has a 4300 mAh battery with super-fast charging available.
Overall, the Samsung Galaxy Note 10 is going to retail at about $949 while the bigger Samsung Galaxy Note 10 Plus is going to retail at $1099. Also, a 512 GB variant of the Note 10 Plus is going to be available at a price of $1199 upon its official release. The Galaxy Note 10, however, does not feature a 512 GB variant and neither does it support a microSD card for expandable storage which is a bit of a bummer considering how good of a phone it is. From a price point of view that sacrifice can be made if one is looking for a high-end phone with all the good features of the Note 10 Plus but at a lower price.
The phones will be available in the colours Aura White, Aura Black, Aura Blue and Aura Halo as the basic set of colours. However, Aura Pink and Aura red may be additionally available in select few countries. The shiny, elegant look of the phone has definitely been carried on from the previous Samsung Galaxy Note 9, keeping the look of the Note series consistently classy. The Samsung Galaxy Note 10 and Samsung Galaxy Note 10 Plus phones are available for pre-order right now and will officially go on sale on August 28th. So, if you want a complete smartphone with all the high specs possible now is the time for you to get the Samsung Galaxy Note 10 or Note 10 Plus phone!
