Samsung on Wednesday unveiled the new Galaxy Note 10 and Galaxy Note 10+ smartphones at an event in New York. The new phones will act as the company's flagship phones for the second half of 2019. The Galaxy Note 10+ is the true successor to the Galaxy Note 9, and the Galaxy Note 10 will cater to the consumers who like S Pen but don't really need a screen as large as the one present on Galaxy Note 10+. While the Galaxy Note 10 and Galaxy Note 10+ share a number of features and specifications, there are a number of differences between the two phone.

In this article, we take look at how Samsung Galaxy Note 10 and Galaxy Note 10+ are different.

Samsung Galaxy Note 10 vs Galaxy Note 10+: Price in India, colours, storage variants

Starting with the most important part – the pricing. Samsung has priced the Galaxy Note 10 at Rs. 69,999 in India. The phone will be offered in a single variant with 8GB of RAM and 256GB of onboard storage, just like all other markets. A 5G model of the Galaxy Note 10 is also present with 12GB of RAM and 256GB onboard storage but it will be released in a select few markets.

Samsung Galaxy Note 10, on the other hand, will be offered in two variants in India – 12GB + 256GB and 12GB + 512GB. Samsung has only revealed the price of just one variant at this point – the 256GB inbuilt storage model – and it will retail at Rs. 79,999 in the country.

Samsung Galaxy Note 10 vs Galaxy Note 10+: Specifications

In terms of the specification differences between the two phones, the most prominent is the display. The company has added a 6.3-inch screen on the Galaxy Note 10 with full-HD+ (1080x2280 pixels) resolution and 401ppi. Samsung Galaxy Note 10+, however, includes a 6.8-inch display with quad-HD+ (1440x3040 pixels) resolution and 498ppi. Samsung says that the Galaxy Note 10+ comes with full-HD+ as the default resolution, however the buyers will be able to change that in the settings. Both phones have the same hole-punch design that Samsung calls Infinity-O display.

The camera setup on the Galaxy Note 10 and Galaxy Note 10+ is pretty much identical, except one key difference. The Galaxy Note 10+ includes a fourth sensor on the back that will be used to collect depth information. Called the DepthVision camera, its sensor has VGA resolution. This DepthVision camera can take a scan of an object, and instantly turn it into a movable 3D rendering, claims Samsung.
