Over the past few months, we have heard plenty of rumours and seen so many leaks regarding the Samsung Galaxy Note 10 series. Today, it is finally time for the actual devices to make their first global appearance and as you might able to guess, most of the rumours were true indeed.
First and foremost, the Galaxy Note 10 series does come in two form factors. One being the standard Galaxy Note 10 which is equipped with 6.3-inch Dynamic AMOLED Infinity-O display while the other model is the Galaxy Note 10+ that comes with a 6.8-inch display instead.
In addition to size, the resolution of the display on these devices is different as well. The Galaxy Note 10 is listed as 2280 x 1080 with a pixel density of 401ppi as opposed to the Galaxy Note 10+ that has 3040 x 1440 display with 498ppi pixel density. Regardless of the models that you like, both are HDR10+ certified and come with an ultrasonic fingerprint sensor.
Another set of major changes that Samsung has brought to the table through Galaxy Note 10 series is done within the series new S Pen. The BLE-based stylus is now equipped with 6-axis sensors that helps it deliver a new feature called AirAction which essentially allows users to access or control the new phones using gestures.
Samsung also stated that the new S Pen for the Galaxy Note 10 series devices is also able to instantly convert handwriting to text when used with the Samsung Notes. With a standby time of 10 hours, the S Pen apparently can also be used with Galaxy Note 10 and Galaxy Note 10+’s built-in video editor, Adobe Rush, Screen Recorder, and AR Doodle.
In terms of photography, the Galaxy Note 10 is equipped with three cameras on its back including the 16MP f/2.2 ultra wide-angle camera, 12MP 2PD f/1.5 – f/2.4 wide-angle camera, and 12MP telephoto f/2.1 camera. All three cameras have also been implemented into Galaxy Note 10+ alongside an additional DepthVision camera although it still features the same 10MP 2PD f/2.2 selfie camera as per Galaxy Note 10.
Available with 8GB of RAM and 256GB internal storage, a 3500mAh completes the general specifications of Galaxy Note 10. The Galaxy Note 10+ on another hand comes standard with 12GB of RAM and 4300mAh battery while you can choose to obtain it with either 256GB or 512GB internal storage.
For those who are still hoping for a 3.5mm audio jack on the Galaxy Note 10 series, well…nope, none of its devices come with the port, just like what has been leaked before. At the very least, both Galaxy Note 10 and Galaxy Note 10+ still support up to 1TB microSD card.
As per our previous report, the Galaxy Note 10 will be made available in Malaysia for RM 3699. At the same time, Galaxy Note 10+ 256GB can be obtained for RM 4199 while the 512GB model goes for RM 4799.
We expect Samsung Malaysia to make an official announcement regarding the imminent arrival of the Galaxy Note 10 series in our market later today. So, stay tuned.
