After months of rumors and leaks, the OnePlus 5 has finally been unveiled and although you will still have to wait a while before the images are available, we have every specification and a few confirmed pre-release images for you. As it turns out, the budget flagship king of the smartphone world has not taken any risks this year at all.


The OnePlus 5 comes in with a flat 5.5-inch 1080p Optic AMOLED display, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 chip and 6GB/8GB of RAM. While the higher RAM variant does look impressive on paper, we are not sure how much more it will add to the device in terms of actual performance and multitasking. The battery is 3,300mAh as predicted by rumors and support's OnePlus's in-house world's fastest charging technology, Dash Charge. There's also Bluetooth v5, NFC, a ceramic fingerprint scanner, a 3.5mm headphone jack and the interesting 20mp + 16mp dual rear camera. OnePlus has upgraded the 64GB/128GB storage options to UFS 2.1.2 which will allow for faster boot time, faster app opening, faster file transfer, faster installation and an overall smoother experience.

 

 

What do I think about the OnePlus 5? It's a very safe device that unfortunately fails to bring anything new to the field. The slimmer profile and the interesting set of cameras will need to be tested first, but my guess is that they will both be significant upgrades over the OnePlus 3T. While all this makes it a solid offering, especially if the price is kept as low as OnePlus is famous for doing, it just doesn't seem like a huge upgrade over its predecessor at this point of time.

The "Samsung Unpacked" event is over and as expected, it revealed the much awaited and rumored Galaxy Note 10 series of smartphones with their rainbow colored backs to us.


Unlike ever before, Samsung has unveiled two Galaxy Notes this year; the Galaxy Note 10 and the Galaxy Note 10 Plus. As they are finally here, we have a brief summary for you to get yourself acquainted with the highlight differences between the two devices. Samsung may not have a similar design, but they have certainly taken the full on Apple route to launching devices!


Internal Storage Options and Price

 

The Galaxy Note 10 is limited to only one RAM/storage option, the 8GB RAM/256 GB internal storage version, which has been priced at $949. The Note 10 Plus on the other hand starts at $1,099 for the 12GB RAM/256GB storage variant. There will also be a 512GB variant, but we are not clear on the price yet.


The Note 10 Plus 5G will have similar specifications as the Note 10 Plus, but with a 5G modem inside. It will also be about $200 more expensive at $1,299.


Display Size and Resolution

 

Not only is the Galaxy Note 10 sporting a smaller Super AMOLED display, it's also just FHD+ (2280 x 1080) resolution. The Note 10 Plus on the other hand, is blessed with the expectedly huge, 6.8-inch, QHD+ (1440 x 3040) Super AMOLED displays. Both displays are HDR 10+ compatible though.


They Share Similarity in Excluding the Headphone Jack

 

Yes, all the rumors and leaks were right, Samsung has finally abandoned the headphone jack, although there really is enough room on both phones to put one in. They also will not include an USB Type-C to 3.5mm jack adapter in the box, like they should have, but will sell you one for $10. Samsung has gone full on Apple apparently!


Cameras and Micro-SD Slots

 

Both devices have a punch hole notch in front for the single 10-mp selfie cameras, but the Note 10 Plus is the only one with the quad camera module and a micro-SD card slot for those huge image files. The specs for both camera modules are as follows are as below.


Note 10 Plus (Quad Camera Setup)

 

12 MP, 27mm, wide angle lens with f/1.5-1.8-2.4 variable aperture and OIS.


12 MP, 52mm telephoto lens with f/2.1 aperture and 2x optical zoom.


16 MP, 12mm, ultrawide lens with f/2.2 aperture.


ToF 3D VGA camera.

Note 10 (Triple Camera Setup)

 

12 MP, 27mm, wide angle lens with f/1.5-1.8-2.4 variable aperture and OIS.


12 MP, 52mm telephoto lens with f/2.1 aperture and 2x optical zoom.


16 MP, 12mm, ultrawide lens with f/2.2 aperture.

Battery Size and Color Options

 

The Note 10 has a significantly smaller 3500mAh battery (25W fast charging), as compared to the Note Plus's 4300mAh battery (45W fast charging).


Both the smartphones will come in Aura Glow, Aura White and Aura Black colors, although the rainbow colors of the Aura Glow will likely be the favorite this year.

All said and done, the Galaxy Note 10 should have been called Note 10 Lite, while the Note 10 Plus should have simply been named as Note 10. Samsung is trying to stay away from the cheaper "lite" tag apparently, but the Note 10 is essentially a watered down version of what we all expected the Note 10 to be, while the Note 10 Plus is for all intents and purposes, exactly the Note 10 should be.
