Samsung's Galaxy Note line has always included for the biggest and best the company has to offer. Notes are huge, and that gives you lots of room to fit tons of high-end specs and hardware features. The new Note 10 and larger Note 10+ follow the trend — but in a surprising move, have one shortcoming in that they lack a headphone jack.
There are necessary cuts made in the smaller Note 10, dropping down the battery, reducing the max charging speed and removing the microSD card slot to fit in the compact body. But aside from a few small changes, you're getting the same specs and hardware features with whichever one you choose. Here's everything inside the Note 10 and Note 10+.

what happened to the updated snapdragon 855+?
Perhaps on the 5G model
No 1 terabyte version?
The 512gb version is only available in black? What is up with that?
Yeah this is the same b.s. they pull every year. I want that 512 in aura glow. At least unlike last year, if I understand correctly, both the 512 and 256 variants of the plus model have 12gb of ram. Vs last year the the 256 had less ram than the 512.
I just came from bestbuy and the plus model only had 8gb ram. I thought it was 12 also
Thanks, but no thanks. I'll stay with my note9. If I where to acquire a S or Note 10?xx it would be the S10e.
Pretty erked at the usual Samsung bs of limiting certain colors to certain storage options.
