After all the rumours, Samsung has finally launched its new Note which this time comes with two variants; Note 10 and Note 10+. Samsung launched its new high-tech smartphone at 7th August at the unpacked event. Note 10 and 10+ are having the most advanced smartphone technology with more power, more speed and more storage. Lots of the Note features have been updated making it the best smartphone this year. According to Samsung, they have designed this note as a mobile experience that’s like a computer, a gaming console, a movie-tech camera, and an intelligent pen, all in one device.
Samsung unveiled lots of information about the new note from its all new design to the new updated S pen and to all the people who missed the event don’t worry I am going to explain everything to you.
All new Note comes in two variant/sizes: Note 10 and Note 10+. It is available in two amazing color, Aura Glow and Aura Black. It comes with 256/512 GB internal storage with 8/12Gb RAM.

Note 10 comes with quadruple rear camera whereas note 10+ comes with 5rear camera, one of which is for deep scan which will give you augmented reality experience. Unfortunately, there is no earphone jack. Yes, Samsung has removed the jack from the note. But apart from the jack, I assure you everything is so damn awesome. You are going to fall in love with this note.
Let’s break down the specifications one by one.
Design and Display
Samsung has dropped its usual note design and has opted for the punch hole display design for the new note. The device is incredibly thin with just 7.9mm of width. Front camera is placed at the centre of the top screen with reduced diameter. The screen is stretched out to almost its full capacity. One of the ideas behind this note was to offer more screen to users for less interruption. As it comes in two different sizes: Note 10 and Note 10+ both have a different display. Note 10 comes with 6.3-inch Dynamic AMOLED display with 401 PPI and 168g of weight whereas note 10+ comes with 6.8-inch Dynamic AMOLED display with 401 PPI and 196g of weight.

Face detection is like other Samsung’s handsets and has no update.

The device can handle your data in the blink of an eye. 8GB RAM is available in Note 10and 12 GB in Note10+.
The device comes with slimmer, newly designed vapor chamber cooling system to cool down your device which solves the heating issue gamers face too often. Also, with an improved AI and enhanced NPU will provide gamers with a smooth gaming experience with reduced lag.

Most people think that your phone will be unavailable to use while connected to DEX but that’s not right. Samsung DEX will let you use your phone while its connected to desktop.
How can we talk about Note and not say anything about S pen. S Pen has got incredible update in this note. It has become smarter and with an elegant, uni body design, lets you write, draw and it even follows your movement.

According to Samsung, this device takes mobile memory to a new level with 512GB storage with up to approximately 450GB of user accessible memory which you can even expand further by up to an additional 1TB.

Hybrid Sim tray is available with only Note10+LTE model.
The camera in Note has received advanced level of update which brings pro-grade movie technology to mobile and makes it easy to use.
