Samsung Galaxy Note 10 and Note 10+ specs

For 2019, the Galaxy Note 10 series comes in two sizes – 6.3″ and 6.8″ on a Infinity-O Dynamic AMOLED panel. Both are running on a brand new 7nm Exynos 9825 processor with 8GB RAM for the smaller Note and 12GB RAM for the Plus model.

The new S Pen now comes with Air actions where you can control your Note like a magic wand. The new stylus now comes with a lithium-titanate battery which can last up to 10 hours on a single charge.

In the camera department, Samsung has carried over a similar triple-camera array from the Galaxy S10+. It has a 12MP f/1.5-f/2.4 main camera, a 16MP f/2.2 ultra-wide-angle shooter and a 12MP f/2.1 telephoto camera. Like its predecessors, both the main and telephoto cameras are optically stabilised. For selfies, the new Note models come with a 10MP auto-focus front camera that’s positioned in the top centre of the display.

It is worth pointing out that the new devices lack a 3.5mm headphone jack and the microSD card expansion slot is only offered on the bigger Note 10+. For the smaller Note 10, the display pushes a lower Full HD+ resolution while the Note 10+ gets a Quad HD+ resolution.

Powering the Galaxy Note 10 is a 3,500mAh battery while the bigger Note 10+ gets a 4,300mAh unit. Both models are bundled with 25W Super Fast Chargers and the Note10+ is able to support an even faster 45W charging with an optional USB-PD charger.
