With some new features of Galaxy Note 10 and Galaxy Note 10+, like a zoom-in microphone, in-display fingerprint reader, and the new Side key (power button), even a seasoned Galaxy Note owner may get a bit confused on some parts of the Galaxy Note 10.
This Galaxy Note 10 guide details the layout of both Galaxy Note 10 and Galaxy Note 10+. All parts, ports, and buttons (keys) and their usage are explained as well.
Although the size of Galaxy Note 10 and Galaxy Note 10+ are substantially different, the layout of the two phones is almost identical except one missing rear camera on Galaxy Note 10. So, in this post, after highlighting this difference, we will not differentiate between Galaxy Note 10 and Galaxy Note 10+.
What are the differences between the layout of Galaxy Note 10 and the layout of Galaxy Note 10+
As explained in this guide, there are some differences between Galaxy Note 10 and Galaxy Note 10+. For example, the Galaxy Note 10 is smaller. There is no micro SD card support on Galaxy Note 10. The screen resolution of Galaxy Note 10 is only up to 1080p.
But if you look outside of the two phones, you may notice the main difference (actually, the only difference except the dimensions and weight) is the rear camera module.
As shown below, the Galaxy Note 10 has one additional camera. Samsung labeled it as a DepthVision camera, which includes a camera lens and an infrared sensor.

More than 90% of the front of the Galaxy Note 10 is occupied by the dynamic OLED screen.
Please note, in most regions, a plastic screen protector was pasted on the screen because most tempered glass screen protectors do NOT work with the in-display fingerprint sensor.
