The Samsung Galaxy Note10 is getting tantalizingly closer to its launch. It is two weeks away, that is to say. And the device has picked up the pace in leaking in the hands of tipsters. Thanks to them we already know what the phablet is to offer in toto, leaving almost nothing to our imagination.
The latest leak comes in the form of a spec dump as well as images of the Note10 series courtesy of Evan Blass and Roland Quadt (associated with WinFuture) who have a stellar reputation as tipsters. It seems everything has been laid bare about the S Pen-totting phone.
Here is a run-down of details on Galaxy Note10 which will come in two models, the regular Note10 and a scaled-up Note10+.
The renders released by WinFuture are clear in conveying that the Galaxy Note 10 and Note 10+ are look-wise similar, coming in a rectangular form factor with sharp corners. The bezels are comparatively thinner than the previous generation of the devices. Both the phones will have Infinity-O display but the punch hole is centrally aligned at the top instead of at the corner.
In terms of display, both the Note10 and Note10+ will feature Dynamic AMOLED displays with HDR10+ support, and Gorilla Glass 6 protection, but with different resolution, 2280x1080p FHD+ for the Galaxy Note10 and 3040x1080p QHD+ for the Galaxy Note10+. There will be an ultrasonic in-display fingerprint scanner for authentication in both the phones.
Pumping power form under the hood will be a 7nm octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 Plus or an Exynos 9825 SoC in both the phones depending on the market. The Note 10 will pack 8GB RAM while the Note 10+ will be offered with up to 12GB RAM. Up to 256GB UFS 3.0 internal storage is predicted for both the devices, but only the Note10+ will have the expandable storage facility.
There is a possibility of phones duo having up to 512GB and 1TB storage options as well, but it is not confirmed as yet. Not to mention, both will boot Android Pie with One UI slapped on top.
On the rear, the Galaxy Note10 will mount a vertically aligned triple camera setup including a 12MP Dual Pixel primary sensor with f.1.5-f/2.4 variable aperture, a 16MP ultra wide-angle sensor with f/2.2 aperture, and a 12MP telephoto lens with 2x optical zoom. All these three sensors will also find a place on the back of the Galaxy Note10+, but with an additional depth-sensing ToF camera. The front will be equipped with a 10MP dual-pixel selfie camera.
A 3,500mAh battery with 25W wired fast charging and 12W wireless charging will be backing the Note10 while a bigger 4,300mAh battery with 45W wired fast charging and 20W wireless charging will keep the Note10+ running. However, the bigger battery in the latter raises the overall weight of the phone at 198 grams versus 168 grams of the Galaxy Note 10.
The iconic S Pen stylus is much improved now with a new Air Gestures feature that allows users to interact with UI without having to touch the screen with the stylus. Moreover, the physical Google Assistant button and the legacy 3.5mm audio jack are likely to be done away with.
The Galaxy Note10 pair is slated to break cover on August 7 at Galaxy Unpacked event in San Francisco, US. The shipping will likely kick off starting August 23. The Galaxy Note10 with 8GB RAM+256GB storage variant is expected to cost EUR999 while the plus version could start at EUR1,150.
At this moment the above-mentioned details of the Galaxy Note10 duo appear to be final with no likelihood of any change taking place when the devices finally see the daylight. Should there will be even a slight change, we will be quick to let you know. Stay tuned.
