What’s New With the Galaxy Note 10?
With the Note series being Samsung’s most premium lineup, it’s no surprise there’s a lot to talk about with the new Galaxy Note 10. Let’s start with what brings most people’s attention to the Note, the giant display.
The Galaxy Note 10 has a large 6.3 inch display, with a resolution of 1080x2280. Color accuracy is at its best thanks to the dynamic AMOLED display technology. HDR10+ is also built in, making scenes brighter and even more immersive. The Note 10 does have a hole punch display, which is something unique to get used to.
However, it is essentially an even slimmer version of the waterdrop notch. This reduces the amount of display taken up by the camera even further than any other in-display camera smartphone on the market. It’s not quite like hiding the camera in a mechanized block inside the device, but bringing moving parts adds a whole host of problems. For now, the hole punch is as close as we’ll get to the full display experience until manufacturers can crack hiding the camera under the display itself.
Samsung has also designed some wallpapers that blend in with the hole punch so that it’s not noticeable on the home screen, and you can bring down the display so that it doesn’t cut into video content.
Full Galaxy Note 10 Features and Specs List
The Galaxy Note 10 comes with the S Pen, which means you get access to a suite of apps alongside that, such as Samsung Notes, and S Pen supported screenshots. You can also get full value out of apps like Photoshop Express, Colorfy, and One Note.
A fingerprint sensor is hiding under the display, which unlocks furiously fast. Samsung has certainly refined the under-display fingerprint sensor since it first hit the market and it's feeling much more in line with a standard fingerprint reader in terms of unlock speed and accuracy.
The design of the Galaxy Note 10 is also a highlight - The frame is built from a durable metal, whilst the back is made from glass. It's the premium standard these days, but it's understandable because it does look incredibly gorgeous. There are some color variants, too. In the UK, we have Aura Black and Aura Glow currently.
There’s also a lot to talk about the camera, which has become one of the biggest selling points for smartphones over the past few years. First, let's look at some of the newer software features. For example, Live Focus Video lets you add a bokeh effect, which blurs your background during live video. This is usually an effect used for photography, but it's exciting, and quite unusual, to see in video format.
There are also some other effects available for video - for example, a colour pop effect that can add colour to the subject in the video, and make the background black and white. A new AR Doodle feature lets you draw on your face, and through the power of AI, the doodle will stick to your face as if you actually scribbled it on there for real.
In terms of camera specifications, we have a triple main setup. You have a dual pixel 12 megapixel camera with dual optical image stabilization as the star of the show. That camera is flanked by a 12 megapixel telephoto camera with 2x optical zoom and a 16 megapixel ultrawide camera. On the front you get an impressive 10 megapixel dual pixel camera.
This setup is almost identical to the Galaxy S10 camera, although the lenses are vertically aligned. In terms of image quality, we can expect similar results. There are some other notable hardware improvements over the Galaxy S10, though.
The Note 10 comes with an upgraded Exynos 9825 processor for even snappier performance. Besides that, you get the same graphics processor inside the Exynos 9825 as you do with the S10's Exynos 9820. You also get 8GB RAM. You do get 256GB of storage too, but unfortunately there is no headphone jack or microSD card slot this time. This may not be such an issue because the Note 10 comes equipped with dual stereo speakers powered by AKG, a physical button for Bixby, and of course compatibility with Samsung's Galaxy Buds, or any other wireless earbuds that may take your fancy.
