Samsung has announced the new flagships of the Galaxy Note series at its UNPACKED event. This time around, however, Samsung has introduced not one but two handsets, the Galaxy Note 10 and Note 10+. With a completely revamped design and powerful upgrades, both handsets will certainly give a tough competition to rivals in the market.
Samsung has pulled back strong after the disaster with the Note 7 and it must be noted, that the previous two Note flagships have had great sales. Whether this time will be the same remains to be seen. Here are the specifications of both phones:
Design and Display:
The Samsung Galaxy Note 10 features a 6.3 inches Infinity-O AMOLED display with a resolution of 1080 x 2280 pixels and HDR+ panel.

The Note 10 panel has a pixel density of 401 ppi whereas the Note 10+ has a pixel density of 498 ppi density.
Talking about the design, both phones are available in 3 colours: Aura Glow, Aura White, Aura Black. With slimmed bezels and apparent vertical growth of both phones, the Samsung design team has certainly revamped the new flagships. Like the Galaxy S10, the Note 10 series has the same punch-hole camera setup but this time at the centre of the display. There is no headphone jack. Both phones have a glass design with metal curves and the back of the phones portray vibrant colours when exposed to light.
