Galaxy Note 10: What You Need to Know
After months of rumors, leaks, and speculation, Samsung finally took the wraps off of the new Note 10 flagship phone and it’s missing one big feature. The tech giant releases two phones today: The Galaxy Note 10 and the Note 10+. Big differences between the regular and plus models include the usual battery capacity, screen size, RAM, storage options, and cameras, with the best of the best reserved for the higher end Note 10+, though both phones pack a lot. Both new Note 10s feature Samsung’s Infinity O display that lacks any kind of notch but has a circular cutout right in the middle of the display for the front-facing camera. Both phones sport the Note’s trademark S-Pen and new triple camera system, but what these phones are missing is a headphone jack. After mocking Apple for years, Samsung’s finally taken the beloved port off of its latest flagship smartphone. The New Note 10 and Note 10+ will retail for $949 and 1099 respectively, available on August 23rd.
The Note 10 wasn't the only new product announcement from Samsung today. The company also unveiled the Galaxy Book S, a new ultra-lightweight, portable laptop that packs a whopping 23 hours of advertised battery life. You can use its 10-inch touchscreen all day, along with its stereo tuned speakers all powred off of an ARM processor and 8GB of RAM. The machine starts at $999.
Amazon and FedEx are splitting up after the shipping giant announced it will not renew its ground delivery deal with Amazon. The cutting of ties between the two companies has been rumored for a while, but it became official today after FedEx issues a statement saying it won’t be renewing the deal when it expires at the end of the month? Why the snub? Well, Amazon has been publicly building up its logistics division, investing millions into its own shipping division, purchasing fleets of Airplanes, trucks, and testing drones for its own delivery service.
