On the 23rd of August, Samsung’s latest Galaxy Note 10 and Note 10 Plus will go on sale! The new device is kind of a revolution that might anger fans or with some luck, become a wise move to boost up the sales!
Here are all the big changes that are hitting the new smartphone.
It’s Time To Embrace A No Headphone Jack Life!
It is a cold truth that most phones are now ditching the 3.5mm headphone jack. They are relying on the USB port to plug in wired headphones. And Samsung just put the approval seal on this! Samsung claims the decision was made to free up space in the phone for more battery capacity!
With headphone jacks gone, you might need to buy a dongle adapter or silently resort to the headphones that come in the box. Of course, you might also decide to switch to wireless headphones like the Galaxy Buds.
No More MicroSD Cards Slot On The Note 10
Samsung also got rid of the microSD card slot for the Note 10 only. If you purchase the Plus, you will still be able to use cards. The reason behind this move? Again, the space saving mission which also helped to keep Note 10 lighter and thinner. In a sense, Samsung varied this feature across the two devices… you know, just to make Plus and the Note 10 different!
Camera… Camera and More Cameras!
- On both phones, you will get a;
- 12 megapixel dual-aperture lens
- 16-megapixel wide-angle lens
- 12-megapixel telephoto lens
- 10-megapixel front-facing camera
Samsung removed the second front facing camera that was existent on Galaxy S10. However, this has been compensated through better software for taking selfies! The Galaxy Note 10 Plus adds a fourth 3D depth sensing camera at the back. This can be used to take videos that blur the background.
AI-based Game Booster!
If you think that you’re going somewhere with slow apps, then that’s not the case! Samsung comes with the Game Booster that allows everything to run smoothly. The booster app pulls up from the bottom and runs in the background as you play. If you download apps such as Aspers Casino on Google Play for live casino gaming, then this will be a plus. There will be no lagging in terms of live streaming of Live Roulette, Blackjack or Poker. Or, you may enjoy various apps at the same time, while setting the multiple online slots on Autoplay.
Doodle Yourself In JPEG or Movie Files
AR Doodle is among the main usage for the fourth camera. With the stylus, you can draw over a photo or video! That includes annotating with words, arrows and sunglasses, you name it! If you’re shooting a video, AR Doodle will track their movement so that the masterpiece you just drew on your friend’s head moves along with them!
You can save the file as a JPEG or movie file video. The format is compatible with most social media platforms. So, get sharing!
The S Pen Is A Wizard Wand!
The S Pen Stylus gets a new bonus feature on the Note 10 and Plus! Last year, a new Bluetooth capability allowed the stylus to be used and take photos remotely. This time, there’s something extra! While holding the button, you can flick right, left and up and down to switch from main cameras to rear cameras, play music and even, switch slides in a PowerPoint presentation.
Of course, you need to set up the gesture controls. It is not quite a must thing to do. But if you already set it up and need to be in a group shot, this can be quite handy!
Will you be switching to Galaxy Note 10 Plus or the Note 10?
