Samsung made the Galaxy Note 10 and Galaxy Note 10+ official today, with pre-orders going live starting tomorrow (August 8).
As you’d imagine for a Note phone, the Galaxy Note 10+ is packed with basically everything you’d expect in a top-tier Android flagship device. However, Samsung also created a slightly less expensive and smaller model for 2019, too.
For a basic spec rundown, the Note 10 features a 6.3″ FHD+ Dynamic AMOLED display, Snapdragon 855 processor, 8GB RAM, 256GB storage, triple rear cameras (Ultra Wide 16MP + Wide Angle 12MP + Telephoto 12MP), 3,500mAh battery, in-display fingerprint reader, stereo speakers, and One UI built atop Android 9 Pie.
The Galaxy Note 10+ features a 6.8″ QHD+ Dynamic AMOLED display, Snapdragon 855, 12GB RAM, 256GB and 512GB storage options, quad rear cameras (Ultra Wide 16MP + Wide Angle 12MP + Telephoto 12MP + DepthVision Camera VGA), 4,300mAh battery, in-display fingerprint reader, stereo speakers, and One UI built on top of Android 9 Pie.
For those looking to get a 5G connection, there is a Galaxy Note 10+ 5G model, available in certain regions.
Samsung upgraded the S Pen for the Note 10 lineup this year, providing a unibody design and new capabilities. According to Samsung, users can now convert handwriting to digital text in Samsung Notes and export text to Microsoft Word. Using Bluetooth LE, users can utilize a variety of gesture controls with the S Pen. On top of that, Samsung added new movement sensors for improved usability.
Samsung also highlights the rear cameras on the devices, with special attention paid to video makers. The device’s video editor can be used with the S Pen for editing and trimming clips, and in addition, the front camera’s new Night Mode will help you snap selfies even in darker environments.
Other device highlights include Super Fast Charging (30 minutes of charge gets you a day of battery life), Wireless PowerShare, and Game Booster software.
