Samsung’s Flagship Note 10 Smartphone Now Has 3 Versions, 2 Screen Sizes
Samsung for the first time is offering three new versions of its enterprise-aimed Galaxy Note smartphone by unveiling its latest Samsung Galaxy Note 10 models in two screen sizes and another one that also includes 5G connectivity.
The three models of Note 10 handsets is a major departure for Samsung, which previously only offered the Note series phones in one standard size with options for internal storage and installed RAM.
Priced starting at $950 for a Samsung Note 10 with a 6.3-inch full HD display, $1,100 for a Note 10 + with a 6.8-inch quad HD display and $1,100 for a Note10+ with 5G capabilities, the new handsets include a wide range of refinements and new features for Note fans. Included is an improved and more responsive integrated S Pen input stylus, expanded Samsung DeX capabilities to allow the handsets to work directly even more closely with desktop computers and laptops to give users more work productivity options and brighter, clearer displays.
The latest Galaxy Note 10 handsets were unveiled by Samsung in a press preview event in New York City on Aug. 6.
The standard Note 10 with the 6.3-inch full HD Dynamic AMOLED Infinity-O display (2280 x 1080 resolution, 401ppi) is the smallest and lightest Note handset offered by Samsung since the first Note arrived on the market in October 2011, according to the company. The new Note 10+ and the Note 10+ with 5G each include a 6.8-inch quad HD Dynamic AMOLED Infinity-O display (3040 x 1440 resolution, 498ppi). Even with larger screens than the previous Note 9, which had a 6.4-inch display, the new Note 10+ handsets are both lighter and thinner than the Note they are replacing.
When the new Note 10 was being created, the company decided to expand the number of available models to give buyers more choice, the company said.
Designed and built with enterprise workers in mind, particularly field workers who require a bright display and a host of productivity capabilities, all three models come with detachable, integrated S Pen input styluses with a wider range of user controls via Bluetooth. The S Pen on the previous Note 9 had three functions, while the latest Note 10 S-Pens include six functions.
The latest Note 10 models also are compatible with a free open SDK that allows developers to create third-party gesture support so the Note 10 handsets can integrate with new and available applications used by businesses, providing support for a wider range of gesture controls.
The innovative S Pen can be used to write handwriting on the Note 10 screen, which can then be converted into text for a Word file, text file or other use. The creative use possibilities of the S Pen is one of the most business-friendly and expandable functions of the Note phone series.
The standard Note 10 includes 8GB of RAM, while both Note 10+ models include 12GB of RAM. All models start with 256GB of internal storage, while the Note 10+ and its 5G variant are also available in a 512GB variant. Both Note 10+ models also include a microSD slot for expandable storage.
The processors on the Note 10 models are up to 33% faster than the CPUs used in the Note 9, while the GPUs are up to 42% faster than the Note 9 components.
