Samsung has launched a new addition to its flagship Note series of phones
This time around the Korean smartphone maker has launched two devices unlike past years when it launched just one device.
The Note 10 with slightly lower specs – but the same camera modules – starts at AED3499 ($949).
The Note 10 Plus will retail from AED3999 ($1,099). Both phones will be available in 5G models that will be slightly expensive than its LTE counterparts.
Amongst other applications Samsung has targeted content creators with its new Note smartphones.
Both devices sport a similar three-camera set up that’s been on the Galaxy S10 range of smartphones – the plus model making room for a time of flight sensor that helps in depth mapping and portrait mode photo and video.
- Wide-angle camera: 16 megapixels, f/2.2
- Main camera: 12 megapixels, f/1.5 and f/2.4 dual aperture, OIS
- Telephoto camera: 12 megapixels, f/2.1, 45-degree
- Selfie camera: 10 megapixels, f/2.2
The Galaxy Note has video stabilisation that produces near-gimbal quality footage. The phone also has zoom microphone feature that focuses on the object that’s being zoomed into. Samsung has managed to achieve this by using / blocking a combination of three cameras.
The native video editor app has also been improved adding critical editing features to the mix. The S Pen – Samsung’s proprietary stylus that’s been a mainstay of the Note series – can be used to cut, drag and drop video while editing.
The device, however, lays the headphone jack to rest forcing content creators to rely on wireless headphones or a set of USB-C units to listen to the footage.
