The Samsung Galaxy Note 10 is Finally Here!
Samsung has unveiled two new Galaxy Note 10 smartphones. This year’s Samsung Galaxy Unpacked Event witnessed the launch of a regular size Note 10 with a 6.3-inch display and Note 10 Plus, with a 6.8-inch screen. The third flagship of the year from Samsung, after Galaxy S10 series and Galaxy Fold, is said to be inspired by a generation that flows seamlessly between work and life. The new series focuses on blending premium design with powerful performance and enhanced productivity tools with the new S Pen. The new Galaxy Note will be available in India on August 23, the same day as the global release date.
“From the very beginning, the Galaxy Note has stood for the best-of-the-best technologies and features. The Galaxy 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 endeavours at a moment’s notice,” said DJ Koh, President and CEO of IT & Mobile Communications Division, Samsung Electronics.
“Every element of the Galaxy Note 10 was designed to help users achieve more. Whether they’re finishing a big project for work, capturing and editing a video, or playing their favourite mobile game, the Galaxy Note10 will help them do it faster and better,” he added.
Here are the features of the new phones –
The Note 10 series has a near bezel-less, edge-to-edge Cinematic Infinity Display. The in-display cut out for the front camera is small and has been centred for a balanced design. The Dynamic AMOLED display comes with HDR10+ certification and Dynamic Tone Mapping, featuring wide colour range. The Eye Comfort display is said to reduce blue light without affecting colour quality for comfortable viewing.
In the Galaxy Note10, Live focus video adds depth-of-field adjustments so that a user can blur the background to focus on the subject. Zoom-In Mic amplifies the audio and pushes background noise aside. For removing bumps and shakes, there is an improved Super steady feature that stabilizes footage and is accessible in Hyperlapse mode for steady time-lapse videos. Galaxy Note10 also integrates bleeding-edge AR and 3D capabilities into the camera. Samsung has introduced Night Mode in front camera too, allowing users to take great selfies in dim conditions.
Galaxy Note10 features a re-designed, uni-body S Pen. Users will be able to jot down notes, instantly convert their handwriting to digital text in Samsung Notes, and export it to a variety of different formats, including Microsoft Word. Samsung says users will be able to customize notes by shrinking, enlarging, or changing the colour of the text. The Galaxy Note10 builds on the Bluetooth Low Energy-enabled S Pen capabilities (introduced on the Galaxy Note9) by adding Air actions, allowing users to control certain aspects of the device using gestures with the S Pen.
