07 Aug Samsung Galaxy Note 10 Display Review
Samsung’s next greatest line of Note Phones will be due for release very soon and we are taking a look at the displays that you can expect on them. The displays have always been one of the major selling points of the Notes as they have tended to bridge the gap between a phone and a tablet, small enough to be more portable, but large enough to get a lot of real estate for your entertainment.
The are scheduled to be three iterations of the Samsung Galaxy Note 10, not including any specific 5G variants. These are likely to be the Note 10 Lite, the Note 10 and the Note 10 Plus (or Pro). The main difference in the three models is the screen sizes. And that makes a big difference for the consumer.
The smallest is the Note 10 Lite, which Samsung are clearly pitching at the more budget conscious consumer, this comes with a 5.8 inch screen which isn’t small by any means. The ‘standard’ Note 10 is likely to run a 6.3 inch screen which puts it on par with some of the larger mobile phones out in the market today. The Note 10 Plus is where they are pushing the boat out. This is expected to run a 6.8inch screen which would make it one of the biggest on the market today.
The resolutions of those screens are what matters when it comes to what is visible on the screen. The Note 10 and the Note 10 Plus are expected to have resolutions of 3040 x 1440 each, with the main difference being in pixel density. The Note 10 having a pixel density of 526ppi whilst the Note 10 Plus has a slightly smaller pixel density of 498ppo.
Though this is entirely down to the screen size differences. The Note 10 Lite, takes a dip on both of these as it is only running a Super AMOLED screen to the other two’s Dynamic AMOLED screens. This means that the resolution drops on the Note 10 Lite to be only 2280 x 1080, which is still a decent resolution for a phone in this range.
There are some other minor variations between the three models. With the Note 10 Lite, running Gorilla Glass v5 to protect it’s display, whereas the Note 10 and Note 10 Plus, both have Gorilla Glass v6 on their displays for added protection. Both the Note 10 and the Note 10 Plus are also sporting HDR10+ modes on their screens as well, and at the present time it is not known if the Note 10 Lite will have this, though with the lower resolution it is unlikely. There is a further difference between the Note 10 and Note 10 Plus though when it comes to screen modes. The Note 10 Plus is running a full QHD+ screen mode, whereas the Note 10 only has the FHD+ screen mode. So this will also affect the quality of the display image that you get.
