The Samsung Galaxy Note 10 and 10 Plus Have Been Officially Unveiled
Android fans, wait no more. Samsung’s flagship, pen-wielding devices have been unveiled, and they are looking pretty sharp. Sadly, there’s no headphone jack and the prices are astronomical as seems to be the common trend these days, but the phone itself is very very cool.
The Note 10 features a 6.3 inch display, while the Plus variant rocks a whopping 6.8 inch display, and with a lack of bezels compared to previous models, they’re both stunning displays, reaching an almost 100% screen to body ratio with the Note 10 offering 1080p resolutions, while the Plus model reaches for 1440p. There’s a holepunch cut-out for the front-facing camera, and the bixby button now serves as both the power button and Samsung’s assistant.
Strangely, the button cannot be held down to power the device off; instead, it seems you have to hold the button as well as the volume down button. A weird choice that some may question.
Now, the signature stylus:
“The stylus does add some gestures to its repertoire in the form of Air Actions. Much like we saw on the recently-announced Galaxy Tab S6, you can hold the button on the S Pen and wave it like a magic wand to switch between camera modes or media within a gallery, as well as zoom the camera with a circular motion to the left or right.” (Digital Trends)
Both come with the following specs:
“The Note 10, like the Note 10 Plus, is powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 855 processor. Where it differs is RAM: the Note 10 has 8GB and the Note 10 Plus has 12GB. More RAM isn’t necessarily a good thing, and 8GB is plenty.”
While the standard model comes with a singular option of 256GB of storage, Plus model buyers may opt for 512GB. Also note (no pun intended) you’ll only receive MicroSD card support on the Plus model.
Lastly, there’s three cameras this time around:
“The Note 10 brings together 12-megapixel main lens, a 12-megapixel telephoto lens, and a 16-megapixel ultra-wide angle lens.”
