At its Unpacked event held at New York City, USA, Samsung finally lifted the curtains off the latest additions to its Note lineup. The Galaxy Note 10 and Note 10+ boast a balanced and symmetrical look, along with cutting-edge hardware and innovations designed to deliver “Next Level Power.”

Shifting the focus to the Note 10+, this phone is fantastic in almost every way. Its premium design exudes elegance and power, with a glass and metal construction, combined with curved edges. Its 6.8-inch Dynamic AMOLED Infinity-O display utilizes an edge-to-edge design, and is packed into a smaller body, to the benefit of handling. It also has HDR10+ certification,

Under the hood is the Exynos 9825, along with 12GB of RAM and up to 512GB of storage. True to previous leaks, Samsung has indeed gotten rid of the headphone jack. Like the S10+, it uses an ultrasonic fingerprint sensor.

The device boasts four cameras at the back – 16MP Ultra-Wide, 12MP Wide, 12MP telephoto, and a new DepthVision camera which gives it the ability to shoot gorgeous looking portraits.

Camera features include Dual Aperture, which lets you switch the aperture from  f/1.5 and  f/2.4 for fantastic low-light shots. There’s Live Focus Video, which lets you blur the background and switch between foreground and background focus, all while shooting a video. Super Steady lets you record videos with significantly less shake, while Zoom-in Mic works like focusing on a camera, only this time, you’re focusing on the audio.

Night Mode is now available for the front camera, allowing you to take fantastic looking selfies even in less-than-ideal lighting.

In addition, you’ll now be able to edit videos on the fly without using a 3rd party app, or you can download Adobe Rush, which is optimized for the device. Screen recorder allows you to capture what’s on the screen, whether it be a usage tutorial, or a game you’re playing. There’s also AR doodle, which is a new creative way to express yourself.

The re-imagined S-Pen is now capable of BLE-enabled gesture controls (Air actions) which can be used for the camera app, gallery app, and more. Moreover, it delivers up to 10 hours of standby time thanks to a Lithium-Titanate battery.

You can now instantly convert your jotted-down notes to digital text using Samsung Notes and export it in a variety of formats, including Microsoft Word. You’ll be able to shrink, enlarge, and even change the color of text, format your notes and be able to share it quickly.

For gaming, the Note 10+ uses vapor chamber cooling, the smallest to date. It also has an AI-powered game booster to improve performance, and now, with PlayGalaxy Link, also allows you to stream PC games onto the phone with minimal latency

Samsung DeX for PC lets you use your PC’s apps and the phone’s apps side by side. You’ll also be able to drag and drop content seamlessly. Thanks to a strategic partnership with Microsoft, you’ll also be able to connect the Note 10+ to your Windows PC, in just one click. You’ll see your notifications, be able to send and receive messages, and view recent photos, all without having to look at your phone.

Galaxy Note 10+ packs a 4,300mAh battery, AI-managed, and is capable of 45W fast charging. It can charge to 65% with just 30 minutes of charging time. It has wireless power share, so you can charge your Galaxy Watch or other compatible devices just by placing them at the back of the phone.
