Samsung Galaxy Note 10 Plus hands-on and overview

The Galaxy Note 10 series is now official and we have the Note 10 Plus in the flesh.

It has the biggest screen in the Note series, ever. Sporting a 6.8-inch WQHD AMOLED Display with 3040 × 1440 resolution at 498ppi. The experience is quite immersive with an almost bezel-less Infinity-O display.

The Note 10 Plus (and the Note 10) is powered by Exynos 7nm 9825 64-bit Octa-core processor and coupled with a 12GB of RAM and a super large 256GB of storage. The limited-edition Note 10 Plus has a 512GB version as well.

The 10 MP, f/2.2, 26mm (wide), 1.22µm, Dual Pixel PDAF selfie camera is underwhelming. While the rest of the competition was able to totally remove it as part of the front display, the Note 10 series used old design. It is still part of the display.

The S-Pen is no longer just a pen now. In Note 9, they incorporated a Bluetooth function and used the S-Pen as a remote control to take photos and videos. In Note 10, the S-Pen can do more — six new gestures.

The fingerprint scanner is now dubbed as “vault-like” security feature. No other fingerprint can unlock the Note 10.

Also, the 3.5mm audio jack gone already.
