Imitation is the best form of appreciation and well, such has been the bumper success of the Samsung Galaxy Note 10 Plus that it has inspired an imitator. There is this Kimtein Note 10 Plus which is available on China’s Aliexpress. This phone is remarkably similar to the Samsung flagship and it also comes with the exact same colour and even a stylus.
It should be mentioned here that one of the biggest reasons behind the success of the Galaxy Note 10 Plus was the stylus that came with the smartphone. Hence, the copy has the exact same specs and features as the flagship and there was no way, stylus would not find its own niche.
It goes without saying that the performance will be nowhere close to the Galaxy Note 10. The Kimtien Note 10 Plus is priced just over $166 which is one fifth than what you have to shell out for the flagship. And then there are the listed specifications – it runs on a 10-core CPU made by Mediatek and is paired with 8GB of RAM and 128GB internal storage.
The smartphone comes with a 3.5mm headphone jack, a 4,800mAh battery and also has Bluetooth 4.0 support and a 6.8-inch Incell display. As far as the cameras are concerned, the Kimtien Note 10 Plus has a 13-megapixel and a 23-megapixel shooters on the front and the back respectively.
The shopping website also says that the smartphone runs on Android 9.1 and has dual SIM support. There are several reports which say that “tens of thousands” of units are currently available. Samsung has to take a firm grasp of the situation and come down hard at the imitator, or else it could run the risk of damaging its own property quite significantly.
