Galaxy Note 10 and 10 Plus Samsung's two new phones kill the headphone jack

id="article-body" class="row" section="article-body"> Samsung's new Note 10 is all the colors of the rainbow.

Sarah Tew/CNET Take one plus 6 specs look at the Galaxy Note 10 and it's clear that Samsung is attempting something different this year. First, there's not just one plus 6 specs Note 10, antutu bechmark but two: the 6.3-inch Galaxy Note 10, starting at $949, £899 or huawei mate 20 lite specs AU$1,499, and the 6.8-inch Note 10 Plus, which starts at $1,099, £999 or AU$1,699. (See how to preorder a Note 10 here.) The phones turn color up a notch with a brilliant prismatic backing on two of its color options, shining back the rainbow. And -- you might want to brace yourself -- Samsung has killed off the headphone jack in both Note 10 phones.

The Galaxy Note Huawei Honor 10 Lite Antutu Benchmark and Note 10 Plus changes don't stop there. There are are four rear cameras in the larger Note 10 Plus, and no microSD card slot in the smaller Note 10. The S Pen gains gesture controls that let you swipe through screens from afar. There's a larger battery and more RAM in the Note 10 Plus versus the Note 10, and wireless charging gets a tad faster for both phones. (See full specs at the end.)

Samsung has also made a 5G version of the Galaxy Note 10 Plus that's identical in every way, apart from the modem inside that gives it access to the fastest data speeds -- they all share the same Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 chipset inside. This Note 10 Plus 5G variant will sell with Verizon before branching out to T-Mobile, AT&T and Sprint. The Note 10 Plus 5G costs $1,299, £1,099 or AU$1,999, the same price as the Galaxy S10 5G. 

Now playing: Watch this: galaxy a60 specs Galaxy Note and Note 10 Plus are here to wow you 10:55 Of all the Note 10 changes, two stand out the most. Samsung saying goodbye to the headphone jack is a big deal, because the brand was the last major bastion of the 3.5mm port. Letting that go signals a probable shift for future Galaxy phones. You'll get a pair of free USB-C headphones in the box, but an adapter dongle for your existing headphones will cost you $10 from Samsung. (I quickly tested four dongles from rival makers, including Google and Apple, and they all worked on the Note 10.)

Just as interesting is Samsung splitting the Note 10 family into two sizes. The company says it's doing this to make a cheaper, smaller phone for people who want a Note, but not an enormous device. The strategy also gives Samsung a chance to sell the Note at two different prices, somewhat curbing an upward trend toward more expensive phones. With phone sales slowing, Samsung may be trying to hit more people's sweet spot.
