Moreover, the front-facing camera can record 4K videos.

Samsung Galaxy Note 10 Specifications
The Samsung Galaxy Note 10 differs from the Galaxy Note 10+ in a few aspects. To start, the Galaxy Note 10 has a smaller, 6.3-inch display. The battery capacity is smaller too – a 3500mAh unit. There is no 45W fast charging either. Instead, you get a slower, 25W charging option. Lastly, the Galaxy Note 10 has only three rear cameras, opposed to the four rear cameras in the Galaxy Note 10+ — it has the same 12MP primary, 12MP telephoto, and 16MP ultrawide camera, but there is no 3D ToF sensor.
