Samsung Unveiled Its New Note Flagship
Samsung unveiled Galaxy Note10, the latest generation of their stylus-equipped smartphone. The company's latest device now comes in two sizes and with or without faster 5G. It will be available from August 23rd.
“From the very beginning, the Galaxy Note has stood for the best-of-the-best technologies and features. Note10 re-imagines this promise for the modern Note fan who uses their smartphone to take their productivity and creativity to the next level, and who effortlessly flows between ideas and endeavors at a moment’s notice,” said DJ Koh, President and CEO of IT & Mobile Communications Division, Samsung Electronics.
“Every element of the Galaxy Note10 was designed to help users achieve more. Whether they’re finishing a big project for work, capturing and editing a video, or playing their favorite mobile game, the Galaxy Note10 will help them do it faster and better,” added Koh.
For the first time, Note comes in two sizes. The smaller version comes with 6.3-inch Cinematic Infinity Display, while the larger model features the biggest Note display ever with a 6.8-inch screen. New models also have edge-to-edge display design. The screen is nearly bezel-less, while the in-display cut out for the front camera is small and centered. With HDR10+ certification and Dynamic Tone Mapping, the Eye Comfort display reduces blue light without affecting color quality for comfortable viewing.
Bluetooth Low Energy-enabled S Pen capabilities introduced on the Galaxy Note9 are now enriched by adding Air actions. They allow user to control certain aspects of the device using gestures with the S Pen. Users who need to take numerous notes, handwriting to text will be a useful capability. Converted digital text can be exported to a variety of different formats, including Microsoft Word.
Samsung DeX for PC has new capabilities, making it easier for users to work between their phone and a PC or Mac. With a compatible USB connection, users can drag and drop files between devices, and use their mobile apps with a mouse and a keyboard. Note10 also integrates Link to Windows directly into the Quick Panel so users can connect to their Windows 10 PC with one click.
With just 30 minutes of charge, the Galaxy Note10+ lasts through the day with up to 45W wired charging capability. Wireless PowerShare option is also available on new Note10. Users can wirelessly recharge their Galaxy Watch, Galaxy Buds, or another Qi-enabled device with the Note10.
Samsung is ditching the headphone jack in a flagship smartphone for the first time and offering USB-C earphones in the box. Prices start at $949 for the smaller version and $1,099 for the bigger one, then go up from there depending on storage and 5G capability.
