Samsung Galaxy Note 10 price: How much does it cost?

The Note 10 Plus 5G starts at £1,099, rising to a terrifying £1,199 for the 512GB model. Fortunately, not all of the new Note 10 handset variants are so dear, although both will burn a sizeable hole in your wallet. The Note 10 (with 256GB storage) costs £869, while the Note 10 Plus (also with 256GB storage) costs £999

Samsung Galaxy Note 10 specifications: What’s inside?

Two handsets mean two lots of juicy specs to admire, so here goes. 

Samsung Galaxy Note 10

  • Processor: Samsung Exynos 9825 (or Snapdragon 855+) 
  • Storage: 256GB (no microSD)
  • Memory: 8GB
  • Display: 6.3in Dynamic AMOLED (2,280 x 1,080)
  • Rear camera: Triple 16-megapixel + 12-megapixel + 12-megapixel
  • Selfie camera: 10-megapixel
  • Battery: 3,500mAh
  • Weight: 168g

Samsung Galaxy Note 10 Plus

  • Processor: Samsung Exynos 9825 (or Snapdragon 855+) 
  • Storage: 256GB (up to 1TB microSD expansion)
  • Memory: 12GB
  • Display: 6.8in Dynamic AMOLED (3,040 x 1,440)
  • Rear camera: Quad 16-megapixel + 12-megapixel + 12-megapixel + VGA (depth sensor)
  • Selfie camera: 10-megapixel
  • Battery: 4,300mAh
  • Weight: 196g

Both handsets are IP68-rated, meaning you can give them a light dunking before permanent water damage sinks in. Both have in-display fingerprint sensors, Infinity-O displays and the all-new S Pen (now capable of controlling your Note handset from a distance with gestures). Neither device has a 3.5mm headphone jack or a dedicated Bixby button, which we suppose is equal parts bad news and good news.

There is a 5G version of the Note 10 Plus available for purchase, although not much is known about this particular device, other than the fact that it has an optional upgrade that pushes the standard 256GB storage up to a very pleasing 512GB.
