The Galaxy Note 10 line comprises four models with various hardware specifications; Note 10/ Note 10 5G and Note 10+/ Note 10+ 5G feature 6.3-inch 1080p and 6.8-inch 1440p "Dynamic AMOLED" displays with HDR10+ support and "dynamic tone mapping" technology respectively. The displays have curved sides that slope over the horizontal edges of the device. The front-facing cameras occupy a rounded cut-out on the top of the display, and all models utilize an ultrasonic in-screen fingerprint reader.

International models of the Note 10 utilize the Exynos 9825 system-on-chip, while the U.S., South American and Chinese models utilize the Qualcomm Snapdragon 855. All models are sold with 256 GB of internal Universal Flash Storage 3.0, with the Note 10+ & Note 10+ 5G also being sold in a 512 GB model. They respectively contain 3500 and 4300 mAh batteries, supporting Samsung Super Fast Charging for Note 10/ Note 10 5G and Super Fast Charging 2.0 for Note 10+/ Note 10+ 5G, Qi inductive charging, and the ability to charge other Qi-compatible devices from their own battery power. The Note 10 and Note 10+ are the first Note series smartphones to omit the 3.5 mm headphone jack. The Bixby button has also been removed.


The Note 10 series features a multi-lens rear-facing camera setup with Samsung's Scene Optimizer technology. It houses a dual-aperture 12-megapixel wide-angle lens, a 12-megapixel telephoto lens and a 16-megapixel ultra-wide-angle lens with the Note 10+/ Note 10+ 5G having an additional VGA Depth Vision Camera allowing for 3D AR mapping. The front-facing camera on all models are accompanied by a 10-megapixel lens. The camera software includes a new "Shot Suggestion" feature to assist users, "Artistic Live Filters", as well as the ability to post directly to Instagram posts and stories. Both sets of cameras support 4K video recording and HDR10+ with more advanced video stabilization. There is also Live Focus Video enabling users to capture Bokeh backgrounds in video, much like with Portrait Mode.

For the first time in Samsung's flagship devices since the Galaxy S1 (2010), the camera has been placed into the corner. This has the following benefits:

The fingers are less likely to block the camera while holding in a stamina grip.
The fingers are less likely to touch the camera lens accidentially during everyday-life usage.

Hardware no longer has to be built around the camera, therefore the limited hardware space inside the device can be used in a more efficient way.


The S-pen has also undergone notable changes compared to the Note 9. The pen is one piece of plastic, instead of two like the Note 9, and supports more advanced Air Actions that allow users to control the phablet remotely with the pen. This includes changing the camera settings and exporting handwritten text to Microsoft Word remotely.

The Note 10 range ships with Android 9.0 "Pie" with Samsung's One UI skin. A main design element of One UI is intentional repositioning of key user interface elements in stock apps to improve usability on large screens. Many apps include large headers that push the beginning of content towards the center of the display, while navigation controls and other prompts are often displayed near the bottom of the display instead.
