Description

Equipped with a smaller display with a lower resolution, the Galaxy Note 10 serves as the entry-level to Samsung’s 2019 Note lineup. Aside from that, it still has the same hardware internals as the bigger--and more expensive--members of the Note line: a Snapdragon 855/Exynos 9825 chip, 8GB RAM, an S Pen, a centered punch-hole selfie camera, and an ultrasonic fingerprint scanner. Three cameras can be found at the back - 12MP main and telephoto, and a 16MP wide-angle snapper. There’s only one storage version with 256GB of native storage and no microSD card slot. The Note 10 is available in Aura Black, Aura White, Aura Glow, and the exclusive Aura Red and Aura Pink. Pricing starts at $949.
