galaxy note 10 note 10+ launch

At the Galaxy Unpacked event, Samsung has finally launched the all-new Galaxy Note 10, as well as the bigger Note 10+. The Galaxy Note 10 and Note 10+ have quite similar specifications, but the Note 10+ is not only a bigger phone but better in a few aspects. The company has also introduced a Galaxy Note 10 5G variant, which is just like the Note 10, but with the 5G connectivity option and a few minor changes that we will mention. The Galaxy Note 10 5G will be available only in South Korea as of now.

The Galaxy Note 10 has a 6.3-inch full HD Dynamic AMOLED display i.e. a resolution of 2280×1080 pixels and 401ppi display along with HDR10+ support, whereas the Galaxy Note 10+ has a bigger 6.8-inch Dyanamic AMOLED display with a higher resolution of 3040×1440 pixels. Since the launch of Galaxy Note 4, way back in 2014, for the first time, Samsung has opted for just a Full HD display on the Galaxy Note 10. Also, neither the Galaxy Note 10 or Note 10+ has got displays with high refresh rates of 90Hz or 120Hz. There is an ultrasonic in-display fingerprint scanner that is faster than the previous generation of the scanner on Galaxy Note.

Both the phones are powered by either Samsung’s flagship Exynos 9825 chipset, coupled with Mali-G76 MP12 GPU or Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 855 chipset with Adreno 640 GPU. In terms of RAM and storage, all these three phones have different options. The Galaxy Note 10 is having 8GB of RAM and 256GB onboard storage, where the Note 10 5G is having 12GB of RAM and 256GB storage. The Galaxy Note 10+ will have 12GB RAM, but users get to opt between 256GB or 512GB onboard storage. The Galaxy Note 10+ is the only phone among these three which support a microSD card of up to 1TB, but there is no dedicated slot. Instead, the phone has a hybrid slot where users can either pop in two SIM cards or a SIM and a microSD card.

In terms of camera, the Galaxy Note 10 has a triple camera setup on the back. There is a 12 MP wide-angle camera with a variable aperture of f/1.5-1.8-2.4 and OIS. A 12MP telephoto lens is there, again with OIS that offers 2x optical zoom. And finally, there is the 16MP ultrawide camera with f/2.2 aperture. In case of the Galaxy Note 10+, in addition to the trio, there is an additional sensor on the back, next to the flash. It’s called the DepthVision camera, which is used for 3D scans of objects. On the front, both the Samsung Galaxy Note 10 and Galaxy Note 10+ pack a 10-megapixel f/2.2 camera with autofocus and an 80-degree field-of-view. Samsung has brought live focus modes Blur, Big Circle, Colour Point, and Glitch. These lets users apply effects to the background in photos and videos as well.

Also, one of the new features that Samsung introduced is the capability to zoom into sounds while recording a video. This lets users zoom onto the subject and enhance the sound in the video. It lets users reduce the background noise and focus on the sound coming from the subject only. Samsung has also added a video editing suite, with S Pen support so that recording videos and editing them on the go gets easier.

The new Galaxy Note 10 lineup comes with S-Pen, a signature accessory from Samsung. The new S-Pen is way improved and long-lasting as Samsung claims that it has a standby time of 10 hours. This time, Samsung has added additional sensors in it to make it possible for users to do more using the S-Pen. When a user presses and holds the button of the S Pen and moves it around, it can trigger certain actions within various apps. Users can now swipe up or down in the Camera App to switch the cameras, left or right to go to the next or previous mode or they can even move the stylus clockwise or counter-clockwise in a circle to zoom in or out. These actions can be customized as well. Samsung has opened the SDK to third-party developers, which means developers will be able to integrate this functionality into their own apps. Samsung claims that the new S-Pen, coupled with a Note 10 is way more capable as it can understand handwriting in multiple languages and can even convert handwritten texts in file formats like Microsoft Word, PDF or it can save it as plain text or an image.
