The newly launched Samsung Galaxy Note 10+ has received an A+ rating from DisplayMate. It is something we were expecting to see soon after Samsung announced the Galaxy Note 10 series. With every new Samsung flagship smartphone, the company manages to take the quality of its OLED display up a notch. This time around, Samsung has used a Dynamic AMOLED display and DisplayMate’s verdict is that the Note 10+ offers the best smartphone display yet.
DisplayMate ran an in-depth display shoot-out for the Galaxy Note 10+, which managed to break a total of 13 performance records. These include highest peak display brightness at 1,308 nits and highest full-screen brightness for OLED smartphones at 793 nits, highest absolute colour accuracy and highest image contrast accuracy, which DisplayMate says is “visually indistinguishable from perfect,” which is something the site has also said about past Samsung flagships.
When it comes to colours, DisplayMate says that the Galaxy Note 10+’s Natural mode offers ICC Color Management that automatically switches to the appropriate Color Gamut for the current on-screen content. Viewing angles are not perfect, but the white, red and green shift at 30-degree angle is small and will be barely noticeable.
The Galaxy Note 10+ sports a 6.8-inch QHD+ Dynamic AMOLED display with a centered punch-hole cutout. The regular Note 10 also sports a Dynamic AMOLED display but with a smaller 6.3-inch screen size and a lower FHD+ resolution. DisplayMate has not provided its verdict on the Note 10’s display yet, but it should prove to be close to the Plus-sized model.
The Galaxy Note 10 and Note 10+ will release in India on August 23. They are currently up for pre-booking in the country through online platforms and offline retail stores. The Note 10 price in India is set at Rs 69,999 for the 8GB + 256GB configuration, while the Note 10+ starts at Rs 79,999 for the 12GB + 256GB storage variant.
