Samsung Galaxy Note 10 and Galaxy Note 10+ smartphones are set to be launched today.
Samsung is hosting a press event in Brooklyn, New York City, where the company will offer the world the first official look at the two phones.
Although the South Korean electronics giant has been pretty tight-lipped about the Galaxy Note 10 and Galaxy Note 10+ phones, they have leaked in detail over the last couple of months, with fresh leaks pouring in today as well.
There is hardly anything left for the company to reveal at the event that has not already been dissected by the tech media. In addition to the two phones, there is a chance the company may unveil its Galaxy Book S laptop.
The public already know what it looks like, so this time out, they’re taking a look at what sorcery their new phone is capable of.
First and foremost, the handy-dandy S Pen stylus will once again come with the Galaxy Note 10. A staple for all Galaxy Notes so far, this new iteration of the S Pen reportedly comes with significant upgrades, including the ability to perform air gestures to issue remote commands to the Galaxy Note 10, a remote shutter button for taking pictures, as well as “precision clipping” for all your editing needs.
Another interesting new addition will be what is called the “Superfast Charge”, which is essentially an upgraded version of fast-charging that is present within current AAA smartphones, clocking in at an impressive 65W. Apparently, this allows for minutes-long charging only and when combined with the reported 4,500mAh battery on the Galaxy Note 10.
It is also rumored that the Galaxy Note 10 will come with not one, but two time-of-flight cameras. This allows you to take clearer photos than before, in virtually any light condition, due to the intelligent depth-sensing capabilities that the TOF cameras possess. We’re not sure exactly what the differences between these two TOF cameras are, but we’re thinking one is situated on the front, and another on the rear.
Thanks to the leaks and rumours until now, we have a pretty good idea of what to expect from Samsung Galaxy Note 10. The smartphone will run on Android 9 Pie with the company’s One UI on top. The phone is expected to feature a 6.3-inch full-HD+ (1080×2280 pixels) Dynamic AMOLED display. It will be powered by octa-core Exynos 9825 SoC or Snapdragon 855 SoC, depending on the market. North America is likely to get the Snapdragon version, whereas the rest of the world will get Exynos 9825 variant.
Other specifications of Samsung Galaxy Note 10 will include 3,500mAh battery, 8GB of RAM, and 256GB of onboard storage. In terms of the imaging capabilities, the phone is likely to come with a triple rear camera setup with a primary 12-megapixel dual-pixel sensor, a 16-megapixel sensor with an ultra-wide-angle lens, and a 12-megapixel sensor with a telephoto lens. There will also be 10-megapixel selfie camera on the front, as a part of the hole-punch design.
Samsung Galaxy Note 10+ will share a lot of specifications with the Galaxy Note 10. In terms of the differences, you will get a 6.8-inch Quad-HD+ (1440×3040 pixel) Dynamic AMOLED screen, 4,300mAh battery, and 12GB of RAM. Other major specifications of the phone will be same as the Galaxy Note 10+. The Galaxy Note 10+ 5G variant will also have the same specifications with added support for 5G.
As per the leaks, the Galaxy Note 10+ price is likely to start at EUR 1,150 (roughly Rs. 89,100).
