It would seem that Samsung followed the footsteps of its main rival on this one – the removal of headphone jacks.

The Galaxy Note 10 and 10+ traditional 3.5mm headphone jack has been replaced with USB-C ports, from which all wired connections will be plugged.

According to Samsung, the removal of the headphone jack made it possible to fit a thinner battery, which means a thinner phone.

 

2. Handwriting recognition

For those who actually use the handwriting recognition feature of their smartphones, the new Galaxy Note series will offer the best of the best in this category. It allows users to turn handwritten notes into text quickly.

 

3. Only two colours for the Singapore market

The Aura Glow (galaxy hues), Aura Black, Aura White, Aura Pink, and Aura Red were the colour variants introduced in the launch; however, only the Aura Glow and Aura Black will be made available for the Note 10 for sale in Singapore.

The Note 10+ will be available in the same two colours plus Aura White.

Fans of the alluring shades of the Aura Glow would be disappointed in this case.

Say hello to air gestures using the Note series’ signature S Pen. Harness your inner wizard when you use the S Pen as a Bluetooth remote control.

 

5. Buttons positioning

While other Samsung phones have its buttons scattered on the right and left sides, the Note 10 and 10+ have only three buttons – all located on the left side.

The power button also functions as the Bixby button; therefore, users could activate Bixby by long-pressing the power button, using onscreen buttons or saying, “Hey Bixby.”

The Samsung Galaxy Note 10 and 10+ will be available in Singapore starting August 24, 2019, at local telecommunication operators M1, Singtel and StarHub, authorised mobile retailers, major consumer electronics outlets, Samsung Experience Stores and Lazada Singapore.
