Whereas the Galaxy Note series has traditionally stood as a single device, Samsung is splitting it into two this time around. The Note 10 lineup is made up of the 6.3” Note 10 and the 6.7” Note 10 Plus, both of which will carry a bezel-less display and a punch hole front-facing camera. They will be available Aug. 23.
Instead of employing the Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 chipset as it did for the Galaxy S10 series, Samsung has opted for the octa-core Exynos 9825 chipset; announced just hours ahead of the launch. Built using Samsung’s 7nm EUV process, it contains two proprietary Samsung M4 cores, two ARM Cortex-A75 cores, and four ARM Cortex-A55 cores. Although its configuration looks the same, the company’s 7nm EUV manufacturing process is a huge deal as it enables higher densities and efficiency improvements.
In addition to a new camera system, the Note 10 also comes with Focused Microphones that can draw audio from a specific point in the scene when shooting video.
The Galaxy Note 10 will start with 8GB of RAM and 256GB of storage. The Galaxy Note 10 Plus starts with the same storage capacity but bumps the RAM to 12GB.
Samsung has also implemented a new Superfast Charge to quickly fuel the Note 10’s massive battery.
The Note 10 will retail for $949, while the Note 10 Plus will retail for $1,049 at launch. Initial color options include
