The Samsung Galaxy Note10 series is expected to arrive in August, and we’ve already seen quite a few rumors regarding the device. Well, a new batch of rumors comes from Forbes, as the website just published some new information.
The source claims that this info comes from a person who works closely with Samsung’s supply chain, and it more or less confirms previous rumors that the Galaxy Note10 will offer faster charging.
According to this info, Samsung may actually ship with fast wired charging up to 50W, though that exact wattage has not been confirmed just yet. If it ends up being anywhere close to that, however, that will be a huge improvement over the Galaxy S10, as the Galaxy S10 offers 15W wired charging, which is well below the flagship standard these days.
The provided information also confirms a 4,500mAh battery for the Galaxy Note10, though we’re still not sure if that battery will end up in the Galaxy Note10 or the Galaxy Note10 Pro (or maybe in a 5G variant of either of the two phones). Chances are that is meant for the latter, though. That will be an improvement as the Galaxy Note9 included a 4,000mAh unit. On the other hand, the Galaxy Note10 and Note10 Pro may include larger displays, so the battery capacity increase is to be expected.
Speaking of the display size, the source also claims that a 19:9 display aspect ratio will be included in the Galaxy Note10 series, and that we can expect a display size increase. A 64-megapixel camera will not be included in the Galaxy Note10 or the Note10 Pro, as the source claims that Samsung plans to use that camera in mid-range models.
The S Pen will be shipping with the Galaxy Note10 and Note10 Pro, but the information regarding it is still not available, it has been noted. The source also says that the front-facing camera will probably be centered, just so that it differentiates from the Galaxy S10 series, while its rear cameras will be aligned vertically, contrary to the alignment on the Galaxy S10 series.
On top of all that, the source claims that the Galaxy Note10 will include UFS 3.0 storage, which is to be expected, as the Galaxy S10 5G, OnePlus 7, and OnePlus 7 Pro already offer it. UFS 3.0 is actually a considerable improvement over UFS 2.0.
Most of this info was shared in previous rumors, as we really did see quite a few of them thus far. It seems like Samsung is planning to release two different Galaxy Note10 devices this time around, the Galaxy Note10 and Note10 Pro. On top of that, both of those phones will be available in both 4G and 5G variants, if rumors are to be believed, which means we’ll effectively end up with four Galaxy Note10 smartphones.
The Galaxy Note10 series will likely arrive in both Exynos 9820 and Snapdragon 855 SoC variants, while Android 9 Pie will come pre-installed on the devices, along with Samsung’s One UI skin.
The Galaxy Note10 series is expected to offer large displays, and we’ll probably see Samsung’s Dynamic AMOLED displays utilized here, same as on the Galaxy S10 series, but different in size. You can expect to see QHD+ panels, and both the Galaxy Note10 and Note10 Pro are expected to offer official IP rating, and supports wireless charging.
