Samsung has announced its new Galaxy Note10 line-up of smartphones, including its largest screen on a Note device and a 5G-ready version of the phablet.
Here is a closer look at the key features of the new smartphones.
The smaller of the two new Note devices, the Note10 has a 6.3-inch display and a triple rear camera system as its key hardware features.
That Dynamic Amoled Infinity-O display is also HDR10+ certified, meaning it supports high-quality colour reproduction and a wider range of colours within the screen.
As with every Note device, it comes with the S Pen stylus, which has been updated this year to work as a remote control for the phone, with so-called air actions — gestures made in mid-air with the Pen — allowing users to control parts of the phone’s navigation.
The Note10 also comes with 8GB of RAM and 256GB of storage and supports super-fast charging, with Samsung claiming 30 minutes of charging will provide enough battery life to last the whole day.
The bigger sibling of the Note10, the 10+ has a 6.8-inch display which can support up to quad HD+ image quality and has a quad rear camera system.
That camera system comprises a 16-megapixel ultra-wide lens, a 12-megapixel wide-angle, 12-megapixel lens and a 3D depth camera.
The 10+ also has bigger storage options, with 12GB of RAM and either 256GB or 512GB of internal storage — which can be expanded up to 1TB with a micro SD card.
It too comes with the enhanced S Pen and the Note10 range also has a fingerprint sensor built into the phone’s screen.
Both devices also include a number of software upgrades, including new image and video capture and editing features.
This includes a new video editor tool to allow users to edit their videos more easily while on the go, and using the S Pen.
The Samsung Notes app has also been updated to allow users to export any notes they make as Microsoft Word files.
The smaller of the two new phones will reportedly retail for R18 999, while the Note10+ will sell for R22 999, both in 256GB variants. They will go on sale by the end of August.
