There are only a few weeks until Galaxy Note 10 and Galaxy Note 10+ hit the market on August 23rd, 2019. Pre-orders have already started yesterday on August 8th. The important thing to mention is that if you pre-order these devices between August 8th and August 22nd, you’ll get a hefty amount of Samsung credit – USD 150 for Galaxy Note 10+ and USD 100 for Galaxy Note 10.
The pretty unusual thing is that this is the first time Galaxy Note will be available in two sizes. Samsung Galaxy Note 10 will have a 6.3-inch FHD+ display featuring 2280×1080 resolution (401ppi), while Samsung Galaxy Note 10+ will have 6.8-inch Quad HD+ with 3040×1440 resolution (498ppi). Both of these devices will have screens boasting Dynamic AMOLED with HDR10+ certification and Dynamic Tone Mapping.
Other than that, The S Pen will also get some interesting improvements, namely an easy way of converting handwriting to text. The hand gestures will also be recognized easier, which will certainly make people who play the games utilizing this feature happy, especially the fans of Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery!
The support for PC has also been improved, meaning that users will have a much easier time connecting their device to Windows PC, and many features such as transferring files or photos have been vastly improved. Also, thanks to Samsung Knox, your device will be more secure than ever, which is another nice improvement.
As for the specs, both of these devices will feature the following:
- Processor: Snapdragon 855
- S Pen: Bluetooth LE, accelerometer and gyroscope for motion controls
- Screen: Dynamic AMOLED with tone mapping
- Wide-angle camera: 16 megapixels, f/2.2
- Main camera: 12 megapixels, f/1.5 and f/2.4 dual aperture, OIS
- Telephoto camera: 12 megapixels, f/2.1, 45-degree
- Selfie camera: 10 megapixels, f/2.2
- Radios: LTE Cat 2.0, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 5.0
- In-screen fingerprint sensor
And here are the differences between these two: Galaxy Note 10 will come with 3500mAh battery, 256GB of storage, 8GB of RAM and no microSD card slot, while Galaxy Note 10+ will have 4300mAh battery, 256 or 512GB of storage, 12GB of RAM and will include microSD expansion, as well as VGA depth-of-field camera.
As for the price, Samsung Galaxy Note 10 will be priced at USD 949.99 while the Samsung Galaxy Note 10+ will cost USD 1099.99. While some may argue that these models are priced a bit high, when you factor in all the goodies they include, these prices start to make much more sense.
