Here’s what we know so far
Samsung is expected to launch the Galaxy Note 10 on August 10. There are multiple leaks and rumors about the upcoming phablet, giving us a clearer picture of what to expect. Here’s what we know so far:
There will be at least two variants
For the first time in the Galaxy Note line, Samsung will be releasing two variants: a vanilla Note 10 and a Pro version. Both carry a similar design, with the difference being the display size—the Galaxy Note 10 Pro will have a 6.75-inch Quad HD+ Dynamic AMOLED display while the vanilla version will have a smaller 6.3-inch Dynamic AMOLED panel—and the addition of a ToF camera on the Pro version.
Other rumored variants include a 5G version and a so-called Galaxy Note 10e, the latter being a compact and affordable version like the Galaxy S10e.
There will be major design changes
Unlike in previous years where the Galaxy S and Galaxy Note series share the same design, the Galaxy Note 10 will look different from the Galaxy S10 series. Both variants of the Galaxy Note 10 will have a punch hole display with the camera located right at the center and an in-display fingerprint scanner. The module housing the triple rear cameras will be vertically arranged, and both variants will not have a dedicated Bixby button and 3.5mm headphone jack—a first for Samsung.
Flagship internals to boot
As expected, both variants will come with either a Snapdragon 855 or a newer Exynos 9825 processor paired with 12GB/8GB RAM. The battery is rumored to be a 4500mAh cell for the Pro version. Both phones are rumored to get 45W fast charging, though some reports indicate only 25W fast charging.
It will not be cheap
Sources say that the Galaxy Note 10 might be as expensive as $1200. It is not clear if the rumored price is for the regular Note 10, the Pro version, or the 5G-read version but nonetheless those who want to get the Galaxy Note 10 better save up this early.
