Samsung’s 2019 super phone comes in two sizes – Samsung Galaxy Note 10 and the bigger Note10 Plus. They both have rear triple camera, can record 4k video, support S pen, have stereo speakers, come with a pair of USB-C headphones, and come in LTE and 5G versions.
The triple camera setup on both phones includes a 12MP sensor with optical image stabilization (OIS) and dual aperture (f/1.5 and f/2.4), a telephoto camera with a 12MP sensor and OIS, and a 16MP 123° ultra wide-angle camera. In addition, the Note10+ has a 3D ToF depth sensor.
Both Samsung Galaxy Note 10 models have centered punch holes for their 10MP selfie cameras, giving them a clean assymetric look. And – Hallelujah – The Bixby button is nowhere to be found on either phone. Both devices are Wifi 6 phones.
Both displays are Dynamic AMOLED and notchless. The differences start with the sizes and resolutions of their displays. The Note 10 has a 6.3-inch notchless display, while the Note10 Plus has a massive 6.8″ display.
