At the latest Galaxy Unpacked event in New York on Wednesday, Samsung unveiled not one but two Galaxy Note 10 devices. The 6.3-inch Samsung Galaxy Note 10 will offer the S-Pen experience in a relatively compact form factor, while the 6.8-inch Samsung Galaxy Note 10+ carries on the tradition of the Note family by being the biggest Galaxy Note display till date.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 10 and Galaxy Note 10+ share a lot of specifications, while the display, battery size, as well as the RAM and international storage capacities on offer are different. The Galaxy Note 10 sports a 2280×1080 pixels 401ppi display while the one of the bigger Galaxy Note 10+ is a 498ppi 3040×1440 pixels resolution display. Both are Dynamic AMOLED panels with support for HDR10+ and dynamic tone mapping.
The Galaxy Note 10 will be available in a single 8GB RAM and 256GB storage LTE variant in international markets, with Samsung’s home market, also getting a 5G variant, which will pack 12GB of RAM. There’s no microSD card slot on the Galaxy Note 10.
The Galaxy Note 10+ — which does have a microSD card with support for cards up to 1TB capacity — packs 12GB of RAM by default with a choice of 256GB and 512GB of built-in storage. Once again, there will be a 5G variant of the phone in South Korea.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 10 and Galaxy Note 10+ will be available in Auro Glow, Aura White, and Aura Black colours. The Galaxy Note 10, which packs a 3,500mAh battery, will also be available in Red and Pink colour options, while the bigger Galaxy Note 10+, which sports a 4,300mAh battery, will be available in a Blue colour option.
Do note that not all colours will be available in all markets, so we will need to wait until the India launch of the Samsung Galaxy Note 10 and Galaxy Note 10+ to find out which of these colours will be available in India and at what price.
Samsung Galaxy Note 10 and Galaxy Note 10+ price
Samsung Galaxy Note 10 price is set at roughly Rs. 67,400, while the Galaxy Note 10+ starts at roughly Rs. 78,100 for the 256GB storage variant, and roughly Rs. 85,200 for its 512GB storage variant. Both the models will go up for pre-orders in the US from today itself and will start shipping from August 23.
On the other hand, the Samsung Galaxy Note 10+ 5G model is priced at roughly Rs. 92,300 for the 256GB storage version and roughly Rs. 97,400 for the 512GB storage version.
The Galaxy Note 10 and Galaxy Note 10+ pack an ultrasonic in-display fingerprint scanner; an accelerometer; a barometer; a gyro sensor; a geomagnetic sensor; a hall sensor; an RGB light sensor; and a proximity sensor.
The Galaxy Note 10 has a triple camera setup on the rear with a 12-megapixel f/2.1 telephoto lens with optical image stabilisation (OIS) and a 45-degree field-of-view. Then there’s a wide-angle lens with a 12-megapixel sensor with a variable aperture (f/1.4-f/2.4) and a 77-degree field-of-view as well as optical image stabilisation. Finally, there’s the ultra-wide lens with a 123-degree field-of-view paired with a 16-megapixel f/2.2 sensor, which lacks any kind of stabilisation.
Apart from this triple-camera assembly, the Galaxy Note 10+ packs an additional sensor at the back, next to the flash. Samsung is calling this VGA sensor the “DepthVision” camera, and it will let you take 3D scans of objects.
On the front, both the Samsung Galaxy Note 10 and Galaxy Note 10+ pack a 10-megapixel f/2.2 camera with autofocus and an 80-degree field-of-view.
Four live focus modes — Blur, Big Circle, Colour Point, and Glitch —let you apply effects to the background in your photos as well as videos and, as the name suggests, you can see them live even as you take the picture or record the video.
Arguably the most interesting camera-related feature is a new Zoom-in Mic that will let you tap any person in a recording and have their sound enhanced in the resulting video. This should — in theory, at least — let you focus on the sound of the lead singer, for example, if you are recording a musical performance at a crowded venue with a lot of background noise.
