The Galaxy Note 10 is set to be revealed this afternoon, but it’s difficult to imagine that Samsung has any surprises left because it seems like all the essential specs have already been leaked. Based on all the leaks, we can compare the Galaxy Note 10 vs the S10 Plus. The official Note 10 revealing is set for 4 p.m. Eastern today.
The most obvious difference in the Galaxy Note 10 vs the S10 Plus is the size of the screen. We expect two Note 10 variants to be announced, possibly with 5G variants of each. The S10 Plus has a 6.4-inch display, while the smaller Note 10 is expected to have a 6.3-inch or 6.4-inch display. The Note 10 Plus is expected to have a massive 6.7-inch or 6.8-inch display.
In the West, the S10 Plus runs on the Snapdragon 855 chipset, which is built on the 7-nanometer process. The Note 10 is expected to run on the Snapdragon 855 Plus, which is a minor improvement from the S10’s chipset.
As far as memory and RAM for the Galaxy Note 10 vs the S10 Plus, the S10 Plus comes in a variant with 12 GB of RAM and 1 TB of storage and in variants with 8 GB of RAM and either 128 GB or 512 GB of storage. The smaller Note 10 variant is expected to have 8 GB of RAM, while the larger Note 10 Plus could have 12 GB of RAM. Both models will likely have 256 GB of internal storage, although we wouldn’t be surprised if more than one storage option is offered.
The S10 Plus has a 4,100 mAh battery. For comparison, the smaller Note 10 is expected to feature a 3,600 mAh battery, while the larger Note 10 Plus could have a 4,300 mAh battery. The S10 Plus still uses a 15W charger, but we have been hearing for quite some time that this will change with the Note 10. One or both Note 10 models could get up to 50W chargers, although the rumors on this vary slightly.
Both Note 10 variants are expected to have triple-lens cameras, just like the S10. The S10 sports a 12 MP main lens, a 12 MP telephoto lens and a 16 MP ultra-wide lens. Those are exactly the same specs as what we’ve heard for both Note 10 variants, except that the Note 10 Plus could have a Time of Flight sensor in addition to the three lenses.
Comparing the Galaxy Note 10 vs the S10 in terms of price, we’re hearing that the Note 10 line-up will retail for more than $1,000. The base model is expected to sell for €999, which would translate to US$1,126, while the plus-sized model is expected to sell for €1,149, which would be about US$1,249. The Galaxy S10 started with a base launch price of around US$1,000. The leaked prices do make sense when you realize how much the S10 cost at launch because the Note 10 will also feature Samsung’s S-Pen stylus and is typically more expensive than the company’s other models.
