Samsung has announced that its new Galaxy Note 10 and 10 plus are now available for preorder at $949 and $1,099.
Many changes characterize the newly revealed Samsung Galaxy Note 10 and 10 plus, revealed on August 7.
First of all, Samsung made the S-pen that comes with both phones function like never before: You can take notes while the phone screen is off and the phone can read these notes and export them as a document. Also, you can use the Stylus to scroll up and down pages or zoom in and out in the camera from afar thanks to an accelerometer and a gyroscope that are built into it, making it function like a magic wand.
The screen size on Note 10 is 6.3 inches and 6.8 on the Note 10 plus. The storage on the Note 10 plus is 512 GB and half that on Note 10, which has no MicroSD card slot. The RAM on the Note 10 is 8GB whereas on 10 plus is a dazzling 12GB.
Other than that, the new Samsung Galaxy Note 10 and 10 plus come with an impressive shining backing and no headphone jack, which makes this version unique. Also, there are 4 cameras on both phones: 12-megapixel dual-aperture lens, 16-megapixel wide-angle lens, 12-megapixel telephoto lens, and 10-megapixel front-facing camera.
