Galaxy Note 10+ S-Pen
$49.00 (exc. GST)
The phones of course launch with the latest version of Android, Android Pie, with Samsung’s One UI layered on top of it. Unlike the previous generation of Samsung phones, these don’t have a Bixby button. Instead, the power button is now moved to the left side of the phone under the volume rocker. This power button works as both a Bixby button and power button with the power menu moved to the Quick Settings panel. It does still have Bixby, though, and holding down on the power button will summon Bixby 2.0 to the front.
These specs are some of the more powerful specs we’ve seen this year, but nothing too surprising. This time around we get a curved 6.3-inch display on the Galaxy Note 10, which is a similar size and display to what we found on the Galaxy S10+; but instead of QHD+, this is FHD+. The Galaxy Note 10+ has a huge 6.8-inch display which comes in at a QHD+ resolution. Both of these displays are Dynamic AMOLED displays.
The processors that Samsung use in both devices are the Exynos 9825 and Snapdragon 855. At this point, the Snapdragon 855 is generally known as the fastest Android chip. Samsung aims to change that with the Exynos 9825. It’s the first chip in the world with the 7nm EUV lithography. This should allow for better efficiency and better performance. Besides the speeds, the Exynos 9825 is pretty similar to the Exynos 9820. The GPU, NPU, and ISP are the same across the two Exynos SOC.
As for storage this time, Samsung has decided to upgrade its storage to UFS 3.0. The Galaxy Note 10 has a single storage capacity of 256GB while the Galaxy Note 10+ has two storage capacities, 256GB and 512GB. Sadly, only the larger Note 10+ supports a MicroSD card slot. The SD card slot supports up to 1TB meaning you could have a total of 1.5TBs of storage in your phone.
