Samsung Galaxy Note 10 Launched, Prices Start from Rs 69,999
Samsung has launched its flagship Galaxy Note 10 series. Its the first Samsung flagship without a headphone jack.
It’s time for the big Samsung Galaxy Note, now in its tenth generation.
The South Korean giant, hosting the annual ‘Unpacked’ event in New York, has announced the tenth generation of its Galaxy Note devices, this time, a Plus variant in the Note family will also feature in the Note lineup for the first time.
For India, the Galaxy Note 10 gets a price tag of Rs 69,999 for the 8GB + 256GB variant. The Galaxy Note 10+ will cost you Rs 79,999 for the 12GB + 256GB model. As expected, the 5G variant of the Note 10 won’t be coming to India for now.
It has been 10 years since the first Galaxy Note was introduced in front of the world, making it the first phablet device to debut in the market. Fast forward to 2019, and the Galaxy Note 10 looks to change the dynamics of the Note family.
The Galaxy Note 10 features a 6.3-inch screen, while the Galaxy Note 10+ gets a bigger 6.8-inch display. The Note 10+ gets a few extra features apart from the bigger screen.
The AMOLED Infinity-O display on both of the the Note 10 models will feature a 1440 pixel screen resolution. The punch-hole camera has also been sized down to offer higher screen to body ratio.
In terms of power, Samsung claims the Galaxy Note 10 will be 42 percent faster than its predecessor. The Note 10 maxes out at 10GB RAM and 256GB storage, whereas the Note 10+ packs a mammoth 12GB RAM and available storage maxes out at 512GB.
The device continues to be paired with the S Pen, Samsung’s patented stylus. This year’s pen supports gesture control as well, in addition to the already in-place Bluetooth connectivity. Also, you can convert digital content written with the S Pen into text format and download them in Word or PDF file.
The other major difference between the two models is the size of the battery loaded. For Note 10 you’d have to manage with a 3500mAh unit, while Note 10+ users are likely to get more juice out of the device with the 4300mAh battery.
But it’s worth pointing out about one main omission, and that is the headphone jack. The Note 10 series becomes the first Samsung flagship to ditch the headphone jack, with the Korean giant finally giving in to the “wireless future”.
Having said that, the Note 10 series finally supports fast charging (with 45W non-bundled charger) that will offer a day’s juice by charging for 30 minutes.
With respect to camera, the Note 10 and Note 10+ packs triple camera setup respectively. You get a 12-megapixel telephoto lens with f/2.1 aperture, a 12-megapixel wide-angle lens with varying aperture of f/1.4 to f/2.4 and a 16-megapixel sensor with f/2.2 aperture.
As for the additional lens on the Note 10+ this is a VGA sensor used to take 3D scans of objects. On the front, the self duties are taken care by a 10-megapixel shooter on both the models.
The phones will be available from 23 August in the US and expected to hit the Indian in the coming weeks.
