Samsung’s latest flagship, the Galaxy Note 10 is to go on sale on August 23 but the flagship, particularly the Galaxy Note 10+, has already started getting lavish praises from different quarters. The latest accolade it received is from the DisplayMate that gave it A+ rating for display quality. For the uninitiated, A+ is the highest rating by DisplayMate for a smartphone’s display.
The Note 10+ display set or matched 13 parameters including color accuracy, peak display, and contrast ratio to get the DisplayMate Best Smartphone Display crown.
DisplayMate has put up a lengthy report analyzing the display of the Note 10+, however, the key highlights are as follow: The Note 10+ display has the highest color accuracy, making it virtually indistinguishable from the perfect standard. Also, the display ensures the highest image contrast accuracy and intensity scale accuracy.
The Galaxy Note 10+ offers 1,308 nits peak display brightness and 793 nits full-screen brightness which are the highest values recorded by DisplayMate. Not only that the display has a low screen reflectance of 4.3 percent as well.
DisplayMate in its review said, “Galaxy Note 10+ is the most innovative and high-performance Smartphone Display that we have ever Lab tested.” For a refresher, the Galaxy Note 10+ flaunts a 6.8-inch Infinity-O AMOLED display with HDR+ support and 3040x1440p QHD+ resolution.
Nevertheless, there is more to the Galaxy Note 10+ than its display. Its camera department has grabbed the top score of 113 for the rear cameras and 99 for the selfie camera on DxOMark camera benchmark.
The rear-camera-setup of the Note10+ includes four sensors such as a 16MP ultra-wide sensor with f/2.2 aperture, a 12MP telephoto sensor with f/2.1 aperture, another 12MP wide-angle sensor with dual f/1.5-f/2.4 apertures along with the fourth one which is a VGA ToF DepthVision sensor. A 10MP shooter with f/2.2 aperture handles the selfie department.
DxOMark concludes that in terms of camera prowess the Galaxy Note 10+ is better than the incumbent flagships, the HUAWEI P30 Pro and the Samsung Galaxy S10 5G.
No doubt, the display and camera of the Galaxy Note 10+ are rated to be the best in the industry right now. But we suspect the Note 10+’s glory to be transient as it can be challenged in a couple of weeks from now with a few ready-to-launch new flagships such as the HUAWEI Mate 30, the Google Pixel 4, and the Apple iPhone XI series of phones.
It remains to be seen which one out of these top-of-the-line contenders rules the chart and for how long. Interesting battle lies ahead, for sure. Stay tuned with us for timely updates.
