The Samsung Galaxy Note 10 and Galaxy Note 10 Plus are official, and they are huge in pretty much every way.

Huge phones? Check. Huge screens? Check. Huge power? Check. Huge storage? Check. Huge Price? Check.. you get the picture.

As you may have guessed, the Galaxy Note 10 is the smaller of the two handsets, while the Galaxy Note 10 Plus is the larger sibling. 

Both come with Samsung's S Pen stylus which slides into the body of the phones, and it's been a staple feature for the range ever since its conception in 2011. 

The Samsung Galaxy Note 10 features a 6.3-inch Full HD, HDR10+ display, three rear cameras (16MP ultra-wide, 12MP wide-angle, 12MP telephoto), 8GB of RAM, 256GB of storage and a 3,500mAh battery.

Meanwhile the Galaxy Note 10 Plus has a larger 6.8-inch QHD, HDR10+ display, four rear cameras (16MP ultra-wide, 12MP wide-angle, 12MP telephoto, DepthVision camera), 12GB of RAM, 25GB or 512GB of storage and a 4,300mAh battery.

Both Galaxy Note 10 variants also come with a 10MP front camera embedded in the screen, in-display fingerprint scanner, face recognition, Bluetooth 5.0, NFC and yes, the S Pen stylus. Oh, but neither have a headphone jack.
