The Samsung Galaxy Note10 will support 25W fast charging, it has been confirmed. This information has been confirmed by an official certification of the device which took place in China. The device received its 3C certification, which is China's official certification body, and this type of certification process usually reveals charging technology / speed that is coming with the device.
This information has been revealed by Ice Universe, as a well-known tipster, as he shared a screenshot of the certification listing on Twitter. That's not all, though, as Ice Universe shared some additional info about the Galaxy Note10+ as well. He says that the Galaxy Note10+ will support 45W charging, but it will not ship with a 45W charger. Seems confusing? Well, that's not the first time we're seeing something like this.
The Galaxy Note10+ will ship with the same 25W charger as the Galaxy Note10, but you'll be able to buy a 45W charger in order to take full advantage of what the Galaxy Note10+ has to offer in the charging department. At least that's the info that the source shared.
The Samsung Galaxy Note10 and Note10+ (formerly known as the Galaxy Note 10 Pro) will arrive on August 7. Samsung had already confirmed its Unpacked event during which it will announce these two devices. Well, the company hasn't really confirmed that both are coming, but this event is definitely for the Galaxy Note10 series as Samsung mentioned that, while it also shared a new S Pen stylus in its teaser image.
Both of these smartphones are rumored to come in 4G and 5G variants, which essentially means that we'll get four different smartphones on August 7. 5G variants of the Galaxy Note10 and Note10+ will not be available everywhere, though, as is the case with other 5G smartphones in the market. That is not surprising at all considering that the vast majority of markets will not support 5G in the foreseeable future.
Pricing for the Galaxy Note10 series is rumored to start at €999 in Europe, while the most affordable Galaxy Note10+ model is rumored to cost €1,149. In other words, the Galaxy Note10 series will be quite expensive, no matter what way you look at it, but that is to be expected considering price tags of other phones in the market, and the price tag of the Galaxy S10 5G.
The Samsung Galaxy Note10 and Note10+ will look almost the same. The Galaxy Note10+ will be larger of the two, and it will include an extra camera on the back, a 3D ToF sensor, but other than that, the two phones will look completely the same.
Both devices will be made out of metal and glass, while both will include a curved display as well. Bezels will be extremely thin on both phones, but a display camera hole will be a part of the package, and this time around it will be centered at the top of the phone, not moved to the side like on the Galaxy S10 series. Android 9 Pie will come pre-installed on both phones, along with Samsung's One UI skin.
