The popular Bokeh effect introduced for photos has been added to video and you can now focus the video on both the image and sounds by zooming in on the subject of your video.

Samsung has applied machine learning to its video software to enable users to take video on the go where the video is stabilized against the the video capturers movements. This makes for action videos that are much smoother and stable than before.

Last but not least Samsung has added a host of features around Augmented Reality (AR) to allow users to create some truly stunning videos layering in animated objects in 3D on the Note10+.

Notes to Text

Samsung has added features to read notes written by hand with the S Pen and convert them to text which can be saved as PDF’s or Word Docs. This is a huge step forward for the Note Series as it makes sharing and using your hand written notes so much easier. You no longer have to transcribe your notes to add them to an email or share with others.
