“Samsung Galaxy Note 10 and Galaxy Note 10+ smartphones will be available for sale in the country August 23rd onwards”
Samsung Galaxy Note 10 series (first impressions) has finally been introduced in India. It’s the next-gen phablet from Samsung that was officially announced earlier this month at an event in New York. The lineup consists of Galaxy Note 10 and Galaxy Note 10+ smartphones, both powered by the latest Exynos 9825 chipset and backed by new Infinity-O Dynamic AMOLED display, improved S Pen, beefy battery, and at least triple rear cameras. While the Samsung Galaxy Note 10 is the most affordable handset, it sacrifices on the bigger display, battery an additional ToF sensor that the more premium Plus model packs.

The former ships with a 6.3-inch Dynamic AMOLED display that bears full HD+ resolution, punch-hole for the selfie camera, and an ultrasonic fingerprint scanner.

The phone houses a beefy 4,300 battery with up to 45W wired fast-charging support, for which you have to purchase a charger, separately.
Apart from this, both the handsets boot Android 9 Pie-based One UI out of the box.
