Samsung's flagship phones continue to evolve and with this the Galaxy Note 10 brings some important changes in front of the Galaxy Note 9.

For example, the Galaxy Note 10 is available in two sizes, one 6.3 inches in the Galaxy Note 10, and 6.8 inches in theGalaxy Note 10 Plus. The Galaxy Note 9 has a 6.4-inch screen.

The bezels are much smaller in the Galaxy Note 10 than in the Note 9.

By having thinner bezels, the iris scanner was removed from the Galaxy Note 10, the headset is now located at the top edge and the front camera is integrated through a hole in the screen.

The Galaxy Note 10 does not have a headphone jack and the microSD slot is available only in the larger version, the Galaxy Note 10 Plus.

Although the Galaxy Note 10 can be charged wirelessly in the same way as the Note 9, the Note 10 can also charge other devices in the same way and instead of offering a 7.5 watt load they can be charged at 12 watts in the case of Note 10 and 15 watts in the case of Note 10 Plus.

Even fast cable charging also evolved so that the Galaxy Note 10 can be charged at 25 watts with the adapter included in the box and at 45 watts in the case of the Galaxy Note 10 Plus if you buy the indicated adapter. The Galaxy Note 9 has a fast charge of only 15 watts.

A simple change, but one that is notable is that the ignition button is no longer located on the right side edge but on the left side edge.

In addition, the dedicated Bixby button was removed to integrate the function into the power button (when you press and hold it).

Also, the fingerprint reader is no longer at the back, but is located directly on the screen. Although this is more modern, it also makes it impossible to detect the exact positioning of the reader, which hurts the experience a bit.

The Galaxy Note 9 has two rear cameras, a regular 12 megapixel camera and a 12 megapixel telephoto camera. For their part, the Galaxy Note 10 has three main cameras, a regular 12 megapixel camera, a 12 megapixel telephoto camera and a 16 megapixel wide angle.

In the case of the Galaxy Note 10 Plus, you also find a fourth sensor that is from Flight Time (ToF), dedicated to the cell functioning as a 3D scanner or to offer more augmented reality when you record video (your drawings and creations may appear in faces, heads or just the space you are capturing).

In addition, the Note 10 allows you to zoom when you are recording video to redirect the microphones to that area so that the sound comes from that specific area and not from the entire environment.

Although the Galaxy Note 10 is receiving night mode on the camera through an update, the Note 10 has it from the first time you turn it on.

The Galaxy Note 10 cameras also allow you to record video with blurred background (video with dynamic focus), not only take photos with this feature.

The interface has no major changes, since the Note 9 was updated to integrate One UI with the arrival of Android Pie.

As for the S Pen, the design has not changed much, although in the Note 10 the S Pen is smoother.

Many of the functions are present in the two generations, but the main evolution of the Galaxy Note 10 is that you can now control the cell phones without touching them, just by pressing and holding the S Pen button and moving it.

As for specifications, we found that the Note 10 has 8GB of RAM and the Note 10 Plus 12GB of RAM, while the Note 9 had the option of 6GB or up to 8GB of RAM.

Similarly, the initial storage has doubled to offer 256GB in the Note 10 and not just 128GB as in the Note 9.

The Galaxy Note 10 also has the Snapdragon 855 or Exynos 9825 processor, while the Note 9 has a Snapdragon 845 or Exynos 9810 processor.

As for the price, the Galaxy Note 10 has a suggested price of US $ 949 and the Note 10 Plus of US $ 1,099. At its launch the Note 9 cost $ 999.
