At long last Samsung has unveiled the Galaxy Note 10 & Note 10+ globally and just yesterday here in Malaysia. In addition to the launch, Samsung Malaysia has also proudly announced during the launch in St Regis, that the pre-sale units have sold out but customers could still get their hands on the devices at third party online and offline retail stores including through telco outlets.
As the leaks have hinted, the new Note series smartphones now come in in two sizes with the Galaxy Note 10 and Galaxy Note 10+.
Much like the Galaxy S10 launched earlier this year, Samsung’s strategy is to open up the Galaxy Note 10 to users who want access to the power of the S Pen with the smaller size Note 10 while offering power users a more powerful version of the phone with the Note 10+.
Let’s get right down to the differences between the two models. Firstly, Samsung has introduced its new edge-to-edge Cinematic Infinity Display that makes the phone appear nearly bezel-less. Unlike the Galaxy S10, Samsung has opted to shift the in-display cut out right down the middle of the display.
Suffice to say you can expect the very best in Samsung’s display quality with HDR10+ certification, Dynamic Tone Mapping and Eye Comfort to make viewing comfortable and enjoyable.
As you can guess, the Galaxy Note 10 has a 6.3-inch Cinematic Infinity Display making it the most compact Note to date while the Galaxy Note 10+ has a larger 6.8-inch Cinematic Infinity Display.
Now on the new features of the Galaxy Note 10. The Galaxy Note 10 has evolved the features of the S Pen bringing the ability to instantly convert handwriting to digital text in Samsung Notes and even export it to Microsoft Word. Adding on to the S Pen’s features are Air Actions that allow you control various aspects of the Galaxy Note 10 by performing gestures with the S Pen.
For content creators, the Galaxy Note 10now boasts pro-grade video capture quality, allowing you to capture high-quality footage without needing a bulking camera. Live Focus Video now adds depth-of-field adjustments so you can blur out the background and Zoom-In Mic amplifies the audio in the frame and pushes the background noises aside. Adding to that the new improved Super Steady stabilises video footage.
After capturing videos, the Galaxy Note 10 can act as you on-the-go studio, allowing you to start editing videos on the phone itself with the handy Video editor which can be used with the S Pen to select and edit clips.
The Galaxy Note 10+ boasts some extra features like Super Fast Charging so with last a full day with just half an hour of charging. Like before, Wireless PowerShare comes to the Note series so you can wireless charge other accessories like the Galaxy Watch, Galaxy Buds or other Qi-enabled devices.
The Galaxy Note10 and Galaxy Note10+ (256GB) are priced at RM3,699 and RM4,199 respectively. For those looking for bigger capacity, the Galaxy Note10+ (512GB) retails at RM4,799.
