Samsung launches Note 10 and Note 10+ smartphones

With the Samsung Galaxy Note 10's market launch just two weeks away, U.S. retailers are looking to get rid of older smartphone models to make room for Samsung's new rising star.

The Note 10, equipped with a main camera, telephoto lens and ultrawide angle lens on the back, features a "hole-punch" selfie camera to minimize bezels on the screen.

The cameras on the Note phones also benefit from a new, third microphone that will allow a user to "zoom in" on the audio they want to capture.

The newly announced new flagship phablet from Samsung will have nearly seamless integration with your Windows 10 device with a direct link through the quick button in the notification center. While it doesn't contain the built-in camera that had been widely reported, it does contain a 6-axis sensor, including a gyro sensor and acceleration sensor, and new "Air Actions", which allow the user to control the phone with gestures from a distance.

The official launch of the Note 10 smartphones will take place on August 23 in South Korea.

The phone is the first Note device without a headphone jack. The Galaxy comes with either 256GB or 512GB of storage and can expand to fit your needs as work and life happen. At the moment, this means that Note10 users can view and reply to text messages from their device on their Microsoft Outlook desktop email. Also, Samsung is continuing with the curved glass design on both sides while the fingerprint scanner is now integrated on the display itself. Only including microSD support on the more expensive model with more available storage is an odd move on Samsung's part, but perhaps the company simply couldn't find space for it in the smaller Note 10.

The Note 10 and Note 10+ start at $949 and $1,099 respectively, with a 5G version available for $1,299.

The Note 10 will feature a 6.3-inch (16-cm) display while the Note 10 Plus will have a 6.8-inch screen. The big change is that Snapdragon 8cx processor inside, which should offer 40 percent faster CPU performance than the older Galaxy Book2 model.

After what feels like 84 years of leaks and rumours, the Samsung Galaxy Note 10 has finally been officially revealed.

Samsung's Galaxy Book S is a premium, ultra-portable laptop. The Galaxy Note 10 has become a more powerful tool for creators with the integration of augmented reality and 3D technology into the camera.

The jury is still out regarding just how useful Samsung's Wireless PowerShare feature is for most users. Samsung claims both can last "all day", but when you do need to juice up, both phones support wired and wireless quick charging. But as an iPhone user who is unlikely to leave the iOS-macOS ecosystem anytime soon, I'm absolutely jealous of 3.5 Note 10 features that I can't have on the iPhone for the time being. The phones are available in three colors: aura glow, aura white and aura black.
