Samsung has taken the wraps off the long-anticipated Galaxy Note10 range, its premium smartphone that the South Korean manufacturer claims to be blend elegant design with powerful performance and productivity tools.
“From the very beginning, the Galaxy Note has stood for the best-of-the-best technologies and features. The Galaxy Note10 re-imagines this promise for the modern Note fan who use their smartphone to take their productivity and creativity to the next level, with an effortlessly flow between ideas and endeavours at a moment’s notice,” said DJ Koh, President and CEO of IT & Mobile Communications Division, Samsung Electronics.
“Every element of the Galaxy Note10 was designed to help users achieve more. Whether they’re finishing a big project for work, capturing and editing a video, or playing their favourite mobile game, the Galaxy Note10 will help them do it faster and better.”
The device now comes in two sizes: The Galaxy Note10 packs a 6.3-inch Cinematic Infinity-O Display while the larger Galaxy Note10+ features the biggest Note display ever with a 6.8-inch Cinematic Infinity-O screen.
Both screens are edge-to-edge Cinematic Infinity-O Display and nearly bezel-less, with a largely inobtrusive in-display cut out for the front camera. Samsung says its award-winning Dynamic AMOLED With HDR10+ certification and Dynamic Tone Mapping, ensure photos and videos are brighter than previous Note devices, and feature a stunning, wide colour range.
The Galaxy Note 10 is powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 855 CPU and boast UFS 3.0 storage, making it one of the fastest phones on the market. Samsung has included the note with 256GB of storage with the base model. The Note 10 has 8GB of RAM, while the larger Galaxy Note 10 Plus packs 12GB of RAM.
In addition, a 5G variant is also on the market ensuring futureproofing to the next generation of cellular connectivity.
Samsung has also re-designed, the handy S Pen – a hallmark of the Note range. Now, users can jot down notes, instantly convert their handwriting to digital text in Samsung Notes, and export it to a variety of different formats, including Microsoft Word.
Users can customise notes by shrinking, enlarging, or changing the colour of the text, while meeting minutes can be formatted and shared in a cinch.
Samsung has also opened up the Air actions SDK, meaning developers can now create customised controls that give users the ability to play games or use their favourite applications using gestures.
Samsung DeX-platform attempt to make it easier for users to work between their phone and a PC or Mac and with a simple, compatible USB connection, users can drag and drop files between devices, and use their favourite mobile apps with a mouse and a keyboard.
The Galaxy Note10+ comes with 45W wired charging capability meaning a full battery charge can be achieved in little over an hour.
However, all this power begins at a not too wallet-friendly $949 with prices in Cambodia likely to be higher still. Users can pre-order their device from Samsung stores in time for launch on August 23.
