Here is the Samsung Galaxy Note 10 specifications and price in Kenya. This phone, to be exact phablet, is the first to feature an all-screen display.
A closer look at it shows some differences between it and the Galaxy S10 plus and Galaxy S10. Its edge-t- edge display technology is the Infinity-O, and like most incoming models, selfie Camera is positioned at the center top of the screen. Additionally this placement of the single circular lens creates what is a distinctly cyclops-like look –an eye gazing out at you like the HALin 2001; A space Odyssey.
If you are a Samsung lover and a follower of all things Samsung (as I do here), you will have noticed that this is the first time Samsung has introduced to us Two Galaxy Note phones at the same time. We have the Samsung Galaxy Note 10 that were are looking at right now and off course the Samsung Galaxy Note 10 plus.
A comparison at these phones show one clear thing that the Note 10 plus is bigger and has a larger display compared to the Note 10. Off course with a few upgrades here and there especially in the camera area and model in general.
Samsung Galaxy Note 10 Price in Kenya
The Samsung Galaxy Note 10 was announced to the world in an event in New York on August 7.
If you missed the Samsung Galaxy Unpacked event, here below it is.
Currently you can pre-order it around the world now.
In Countries such as the US, the United Kingdom and Australia, the release date is set for August 23.
Is the phone available in Kenya? Currently No, we keeping our eyes open to see when the release date for Kenya will be.
If you’re buying the phone outright, the Galaxy Note 10 price is set at price tag set at $945 / £869 / AU$1,499. This converts to about Ksh.100000. This is what we think will be the Samsung Galaxy Note 10 Price in Kenya, below are the specifications.
Samsung Galaxy Note 10 Display and Design
Unlike other Samsung phones we are used to, the Note 10 comes with a full-screen display with a punch hole cut out for the front-facing camera at the top center of the screen. If you’ve seen the Galaxy S10plus and the S10, you know what am talking about.
The Note 10 has a 6.3-inch AMOLED display with a Full HD resolution, coming in at 2280 x 1080 pixels, with 401 pixels per inch. It includes HDR 10+ technology, and considering that Samsung has not opted for a QHD display here, we are impressed with how the display looks.
Here is what we were able to see, for starters, the Note 10, is smaller than the Note 9. It is also thinner and lighter. Its mass is only 168g a comfortable phone to carry around. What of its dimension? It measures 72 x 151 x 7.9mm. You should not forget it comes with an S Pen stylus.
On the bottom edge of the phone you’ll find the USB-C connector in the center, with a speaker and the S-Pen slot sitting to the right of it. The top edge of the phone is uninterrupted apart from the SIM tray. Something I like about this phone.
The left-hand edge of the phone is home to the volume rocker, and the power button below this.
The frame of the phone is a premium metal, while the back is made of glass. Your color options are Aura Glow (a combination of blue and white), Aura Black and Aura Pink, but it’s currently unclear which markets will get which colors.
I particularly liked the Aura Glow variant, the color of which changes depending on the light you’re using the phone under.
Now what of the Camera? You will be disappointed the Camera has no upgrades compared to S10 plus and the S10. The phone comes with a combination of combination of a 16MP ultra-wide lens, a 12MP regular lens and a 12MP telephoto lens.
However, that does not mean that the phone does not give good photography experience. The truth is even with this combination, you photography experience should be so good.
One thing is clear, that most of the Note 10’s improvements in the camera department are in its video recording capabilities. The image stabilization technology has been improved, and there’s a new feature called Live Focus Video, which enables you to capture ‘bokeh’ background blur effects of the kind were used to seeing in portrait-mode stills.

That said, this is still a big phone, and those with smaller hands will likely struggle to use it one-handed – don’t expect it to be as easy to use as handsets like the iPhone SE or Sony’s Compact line of Xperia phones.
Regardless of this, it is a beautiful phone to own. It is one of the best phones to have been made by Samsung. If you looking for class and a phone that neither too big nor too small, then the Samsung Galaxy Note 10 is the device to go for.
As I said, I am keeping my eyes open as to when it will be available in Kenya. Should it be available on Jumia, Masoko, Samsung shops, or any other platform, I will be quick to let you know.
