Galaxy Note10 and Note10+ offer next-level power that’s like a computer, a gaming console, a film studio, and an intelligent pen, all in one device.
How many flagship phones do Samsung have at the moment? Nine?
The new, and hardly a secret announcement, of Samsung’s next Galaxy Note phone ushers in a generation that further has the smartphone elite scratching their heads as to which to throw their cash at.
Both the Note 10 & Note 10+ include the latest Snapdragon 855 SoC, an in screen fingerprint reader and the same camera array comprised of a wide-angle 16MP f/2.2, 12MP dual aperture f/1.5 & f/2.4, telephoto 12MP f/2.1 and a 10MP f/2.2 selfie camera.
From there the similarities end. The Note 10 has a 6.3″ 2280 x 1080 AMOLED display, 8GB of RAM, a 3,500mAh battery and 128GB of internal storage that can’t be extended.
It’s bigger brother the Note 10+ on the other hand has a microSD slot, 6.8″ 3040 x 1440 AMOLED, 4,300mAh battery, 12GB of RAM and either 256GB or 512GB of internal storage.
Of course, both include the Note’s trademark S Pen, although it’s been upgraded to include an accelerometer and gyroscope for motion controls.
There’s no headphone jack, which is likely to annoy some people, but Samsung say they’ve removed it to make way for more battery and that’s something I can get behind.
In addition to some bumped specs and a new pen the Note 10’s also include an update to Samsung’s DeX product. DeX can now be run on your existing Mac or Windows PC’s desktop. Meaning that whilst connected the phone’s self contained operating system is accessible like a virtual machine. Files can be transferred by dragging and dropping them and if desired the phone can operate as a regular computer when connected directly to a monitor.
In addition to the standard versions of the Note 10 a 5G version of the 10+ will be on offer to Australian’s available through Telstra. For those pre-ordering if you do so before September 23rd Telstra wont slog you any extra for grabbing the 5G model.
