“The Samsung Galaxy Note 10 series is the latest flagship smartphone lineup from the South Korean manufacturer”

Samsung has officially announced the brand new Galaxy Note 10 and the Galaxy Note 10+ smartphones. There wasn’t much about the phones that we didn’t already know. All the leaked reports, renders, specifications, were confirmed at the event. The two smartphones have a lot in common, including the processor, connectivity features, camera setups, etc. In this post, we are going to take a look at the differences between the Galaxy Note 10 and the Galaxy Note 10+. Let’s get started!

Samsung Galaxy Note 10 vs Samsung Galaxy Note 10+ price

First, let’s look at the difference in pricing. The Samsung Galaxy Note 10 price is $949, which is about Rs 67,000. This option will come with 8GB RAM and 256GB of storage, but you can also have the phone with 12GB RAM, but that’s only if you buy the 5G variant (priced at $1,049 or roughly Rs 75,000). Unfortunately, the phone does not come with a microSD card slot, which means that you can’t add more storage.

The Galaxy Note 10+, on the other hand, will only be sold with 12GB of RAM, but you can choose between 256GB or 512GB of onboard storage. The prices of the two variants are $1,099 (roughly Rs 78,000) and $1,199 (about Rs 85,000), respectively. The 5G-capable variant of the handset is priced at $1,299 (approximately Rs 92,000) for the 256GB variant and $1,399 (around Rs 1 lakh) for the 512GB option.

The front of the phones have an almost bezel less display, with a tiny camera hole at the top centre. The Galaxy Note 10 features a 6.3-inch Dynamic AMOLED Infinity-O display with full HD+ resolution and 401ppi. Meanwhile, the larger Galaxy Note 10+ gets a 6.8-inch AMOLED display with QHD+ display and 498ppi. The displays on both devices are HDR10+ certified and come with an ultrasonic fingerprint scanner.

Coming to the difference in specifications, there aren’t any in terms of design. Both phones look similar from the front, with the Galaxy Note 10+ being a little larger than the standard model. However, you can easily tell the difference between the two when looking at the back panel. The Galaxy Note 10 has a triple rear camera setup, whereas the Note 10+ gets a quad-camera setup. The sensors are the same as Note 10, but with the addition of a fourth depth vision VGA sensor.

Samsung Galaxy Note 10 vs Samsung Galaxy Note 10+ battery

The Galaxy Note 10 features a 3,500mAh battery, whereas the Galaxy Note 10+ gets a larger 4,300mAh unit. The latter will support 45W fast charging, but the 45W fast-charging adaptor will not be shipped in the box. As for the former, its fast-charging support is capped at 25W. And for reverse wireless charging, the caps are 12W and 15W for Galaxy Note 10 and Note 10+, respectively.

Lastly, the standard model doesn’t support microSD cards for storage expansion, white the Plus model does (up to 1TB).

As far as new tech goes, there isn’t anything new with the latest Samsung Galaxy Note 10 devices. Samsung has bundled all the best features of the Galaxy S10 series and the Note 9 series together to make its new flagships. Of course, you do get a centrally placed punch hole camera and the standard Galaxy Note 10 also supports 5G. The camera performance should be similar to that of Galaxy S10+, but the Note 10+ should offer good battery life thanks to that 4,300mAh battery.
