Samsung has revealed its most powerful smartphones ever – the Galaxy Note 10 and Note 10+ – which bring together a range of new and powerful features along with impressive design and stunning performance.

For the first time, Samsung has released two Note devices – the 6.3-inch Galaxy Note 10 and the 6.8-inch Galaxy Note 10+ – which the company sees as a way to both attract new users to the product and to satisfy loyal Note customers.

The smartphone has curved edges on the screen and on the rear panel to give it a slick and modern look.

“The Galaxy Note has always been the power phone for people who want the very best in smartphone technology,” said Garry McGregor, Vice-President, Mobile Division, Samsung Electronics Australia.

“That’s why Note users are Samsung’s most loyal customers – they use their phones to help them achieve more, every day.

TECH GUIDE’S HANDS-ON LOOK AT THE SAMSUNG GALAXY NOTE 10 AND NOTE 10+

“The Galaxy Note 10 and Note 10+ are the ultimate devices for today’s power user whose mobile phone is at the centre of how they manage their lives.”

The Note 10 brings together all the premium features in Samsung’s portfolio including the cinematic Infinity Display.

Samsung says the screens on the Note 10 smartphones are the best it has ever produced and have an almost bezel-less look thanks to the 94 per cent screen to body ratio.

The front camera peeks out from a small hole punch on the top centre of the display to allow the screen to cover nearly the entire front of the phone.

The Dynamic AMOLED displays offer superior brightness to earlier Note models and also brings HDR 10+ certification.

The 6.8-inch display aboard the Note 10+ is the largest screen ever used on a Samsung Galaxy Note device.

Also included is the in-screen ultrasonic fingerprint reader.

A trademark feature of the Galaxy Note family is the S Pen which this time has a unibody design and its own battery so it can run for up to 10 hours.

And with its Bluetooth connection to the device, the S Pen can also be used to control many of the Note 10 features including the camera and navigating content using Air Actions.

The S Pen also has new abilities including being able to convert handwriting to text in real time and exporting to numerous formats including Word and PDF.

The Samsung Galaxy Note 10 also has a professional grade camera on board with rear triple camera (Note 10) and quad camera (Note 10+) systems made up of an ultrawide 16-megapixel lens, a wide-angle 12-megapixel lens and 12-megapixel telephoto lens.

The Note 10+ also includes a DepthVision time of flight VGA camera.

Both devices also include a front 10-megapixel camera.

On top of the high quality images and videos the Galaxy Note 10 can produce, there are also numerous features to enhance your content.

On the video side, Live Focus Video allows users to make depth of field adjustments to blur the background and keep the focus on your subject.

Zoom-in Mic can also amplify the audio as you zoom in on the frame thanks to the multiple microphones built into the device that suppress the background noise.

It also has an improved Super Steady feature which can stabilise footage. This feature is also available for the first time in Hyperlapse mode for steadier time-lapse videos.

Users can also edit the videos on the go quickly and easily on the Note 10.

The S Pen can also be used to make precise clip edits and to take more control over your footage.

Samsung DeX allows users to connect Note 10 to PCs and Macs

Also included is Adobe Rush which provides a sophisticated suite of editing tools which are even more accurate when used with the S Pen.

The Samsung Galaxy Note 10  can also incorporate augmented reality into your images with AR Doodle which allows users to draw on images and create effects and animations which move with the subject.

The device also expands on the Samsung DeX capabilities and can now connect to both PC and Mac computers through USB to be able to share files and also run favourite mobile apps in a computer environment using a mouse and keyboard.

Samsung has also partnered with Microsoft to allow the Galaxy Note 10 to link directly to windows into the Quick Panel.

From there they can see notifications and even send and receive messages and review recent photos without having to look at their phone.

And all the while without having to worry about security thanks to the robust Samsung Knox.

Performance wise, Samsung Galaxy Note 10 delivers a 7nm processor with CPU and GPU improvements of 33 per cent and 42 per cent over the previous model respectively.

Another benefit of this blazing performance is even richer mobile gaming.

Under the hood is a super slim vapour chamber cooling system which can maintain optimal performance during gameplay without things heating up.

Samsung will also introduce PlayGalaxy Link which will allow users to stream PC-based games to the Note 10.
