Samsung Galaxy Note 10 vs Galaxy S10+ vs Galaxy Note 9: Specifications
Talking about design first, the Samsung Galaxy Note 10 sees a big shift with a new glossy back panel design, triple rear camera alignment to the top left placed vertically, and an Infinity-O display with the cut-out placed in the top centre. The bezels are a bare minimum, and the dual-edged curved display remains. The Samsung Galaxy S10+, launched earlier this year, also offers minimal bezels, but has two cutouts for the dual front camera sensors and they are placed on the top right of the screen. The triple rear camera setup is placed at the top centre, aligned horizontally. Last year’s Galaxy Note 9 has thicker bezels at the top and bottom, compared to the other two, with the front camera placed on the top bezel. The back panel has a dual camera setup placed horizontally in the centre, and a rear fingerprint sensor is also integrated. The Galaxy S10+ and the Galaxy Note 10, on the other hand, sport in-display fingerprint sensors.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 10 and Galaxy Note 9 both have S Pen stylus support, while the Galaxy S10+ lacks it. The Galaxy Note 10 has an all-new S Pen featuring a 6-axis sensor with a gyroscope and acceleration sensor.
