Samsung unveils Galaxy Note 10 and 10+

Samsung has just unveiled its Galaxy Note 10 and 10+. With its 6.3 inches, the first enters the standard question dimensions. It’s maxi version comes to remember what was the gigantism of the Galaxy Note family.

When released in 2011, with its screen diagonal of 5.3 inches, the Samsung Galaxy Note looked like a giant closer to the tablet than a smartphone. In the end, except for its stylus, it was a precursor to what has become today’s mobile with their screens 5.5 inches on average. Eight years later, here is the Galaxy Note 10 and its maximum variation, the Note 10+.

With its diagonal of 6.3 inches, the Galaxy Note 10 display delivers a definition of 2.280 x 1.080 megapixels and a resolution of 401 dpi. It extends to the edges of the device whose side edges remain curved. The 10 megapixel selfies module is integrated into a hole at the top of the screen. Template question, surprise! The once gigantic mobile takes the size of Google’s Pixel 3.

If we ignore an extended screen to the maximum, this Note 10 has entered normality question size. But as always, it is in the case only 7.9 mm thick that the Galaxy Note is revealed. Thus, we find 8 GB of RAMassociated with Samsung’s home chip, the powerful Exynos 9825 with fine engraving 7 nm. With this Samsung promises one-third higher performance.

Storage side, the basic capacity is 256 GB. The set is powered by a 3.500 mAh battery whose capacity can cast doubt on the endurance of such a mobile. However, according to Samsung, the charging system would deliver a day of autonomy in just 30 minutes.

Side pictures, the Galaxy Note 10 contains the three modules that make the success of the Galaxy S10, namely a sensor main 12-megapixel (F / 1.5), a wide-angle of 16 megapixels (F / 2.2) and zoom 12 megapixels (F / 2.1). Improved, the camera would be able to take 3D shots of objects so that they can eventually be reproduced from a 3D printer. The famous S-Penmobile is changing a bit and Samsung claims that its autonomy is now pushed to 10 hours. Finally, the ultrasonic impression sensor is under the screen.

A muscular maxi version

For its part, the maximum version of the Galaxy Note 10 stretches 0.4 inches, which gives it back its look of a great old phone. Its 6.8 inches of screen display 3.040 x 1.440 pixels with a density of 498 dpi. If the photo part and the processor remain identical to Note 10, the + version has 12 GB of RAM and a battery with a larger capacity (4.300 mAh). In addition, it can accommodate a microSD card of 1 TB to expand its memory.

In its announcement, Samsung said that both phones can integrate an optional 5G chip. An option that will not be offered in the United States, probably because the chip in question comes from the Chinese supplier Huawei who has just been officially banned from US bids. Already in pre-order, the two smartphones will be marketed from August 23 with an entry price of 949 euros for the basic model with 256 GB of storage and 8 GB of RAM. The Galaxy Note 10+ version with 12 GB of RAM will be available with two storage capacities (256 GB for 1.109 euros and 512 GB for 1.209 euros).
