Samsung officially launched the Galaxy Note 10 and Note 10 Plus in the UAE on August 27.

The South Korean firm packed new features, as always, into the Note 10 twins. As it continues to push the ‘power users’ market segment.

Over the last couple of iterations of the Note, Samsung has widened its ‘work / productivity’ persona and build on its fun / creativity features.

The Galaxy Note 10 is hence a potent tool for mobile movie makers allowing users to shoot and edit videos on the go.

The four camera set up on the Note 10 Plus is carried forward from the Galaxy S10 5G.

The set up consists of the 16 megapixel ultra-wide-angle lens, 12-megapixel telephoto lens, a depth sensing camera and most importantly the 12 megapixel main lens with dual-aperture functionality which Samsung first introduced on the Galaxy S9.

It’s low key the most understated hardware feature in a sea of phones that produce decent results through computational photography.

The primary 12 megapixel sensor is essentially the same from the Galaxy S7 – making it more than four years old. But the lens still holds up and the software enhancements have been timely.

When it comes to video, Samsung has added a super steady mode, which is mainly a software feature.

The super steady mode uses AI and the camera’s OIS system to sense shakes and ends up producing smooth video that resembles footage from an action camera.

The Note 10 is also able to shoot in 4k at 60fps from its rear cameras and is able to shoot 4k at 30fps from its single front shooter that’s rated at 10 megapixel.

The Note 10 also allows users to download Adobe Rush for free from the Galaxy Store which lets you edit video on a PC through its DeX operating system.

Samsung has worked hard to transform the Note 10’s image into a content creator’s device. The functionality of the S Pen to shoot and edit coupled with the high base storage option adds to its allure.
