Samsung lastly revealed its recent flagship smartphone after months of hype, rumors, and overall anticipation: the Galaxy Note 10.
The device is all-screen, with the base model containing a 6.3 “Cinematic Infinity Edge “display and a small hole-punch for its front-facing camera.
However, this is just the base model. Unlike previous Note devices, Note 10 will have two main variants: a basic version, and Note 10+, which upgrades the screen to 6.8,” rounds off the edges of the device and contains a two-lens hole-punch camera.
Both designs have a fingerprint sensor and “Dynamic AMOLED” technology on display, so the colors and blacks should be as precise as ever, and Samsung promises HDR10 + accreditation and “Dynamic Tone Mapping” for a wider spectrum of colors and brighter graphics.
The display of Note 10 comes in at 2280x1080p, whereas it is upgraded to 3040x1440p for Note 10+. As regards cameras, there are three rear lenses in the fundamental Note 10: a 16mp “Ultra Wide” lens, a 12mp Wide-angle lens, and a 12mp Telephoto lens. Note 10 + has the same thing but adds an additional “DepthVision Camera” to the mix.
Samsung claims that these lenses will provide a “grade” camera experience with characteristics such as live video focus (for simple access).
So, what kind of hardware does the Note 10 pack with the screen and cameras out of the manner? As far as processors are concerned, we are looking for a Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 SoC in the US, but for other countries (including the UK) a new 7 nm Exynos 9825 chip. Base Note 10 includes RAM 8 GB and storage 256 GB, but Note 10 + houses RAM 12 GB with the same quantity of storage. All Note 10 variants are running Android 9.0 Pie.
The base note 10 characteristics a 3,500mAh battery when it comes to charging and battery capability, while its larger cousin has a 4,300mAh version. Both phones promise “Super quick charging,” which could supposedly offer you a complete day of phone usage at a single charge of 30 minutes.
Note 10 is the first device in the line-up of Samsung to have both 5 G and LTE choices. The downside is that the 5 G version is only accessible to Verizon clients as a Note 10 + variant. You’re out of luck if you get the “normal” Note 10.
Physical improvements have also been seen by the S Pen itself. The unit now features unibody design that should make it longer lasting than ever. Unfortunately, it will likely be as simple to lose as Samsung does not seem to have included any characteristics of Note 10-specific S Pen locator.
