Samsung Galaxy Note 10 about to launch: here is everything we know about it

ByGoraud Mazanec 2019-08-07 1105

Samsung Galaxy Note 10 series smartphones will be officially released on August 7. Many secrets about the Samsung Galaxy Note 10 and Note 10 Plus have already been revealed before the official presentation. In this article, we will collect all the current news and rumors about the Samsung Galaxy Note 10 series phones including the official images, specs, design, features, price and more details.

Samsung Galaxy Note 10: Official press photos leaked on the web

The photos of the Samsung Galaxy Note 10 show some features and changes. For example, similar to the Galaxy S10 series, there is a hole in the display that houses the front camera. In contrast to the variants of the S series, the camera is placed in the middle of the new note. The criticism of the asymmetrical design of the S10 models was therefore taken to heart for the Note series.

The display diagonals of the devices can also be predicted with 6.3 inches for the Note 10 and 6.8 inches for the Note 10 Plus. OLED technology is to be used in the displays, enabling a resolution of 3,040 x 1,440 pixels.

The S-Pen is traditionally back and will probably bring new features with it. As with the recently introduced Galaxy Tab S6, it is supposed to work with pure gesture control for the first time. This means that the pen doesn't have to touch the screen.

A further interesting detail came to light (apparently accidentally) via the American FCC: The illustrations of the Note 10 submitted by Samsung show that Samsung for the first time dispenses with the classic headphone socket in the Note 10 models. It has been rumoured for quite some time that Samsung is saying goodbye to the 3.5mm jack with a grade of 10; the pictures now confirm this. If you want to listen to music with the new Phablets, you'll have to use either Bluetooth or USB-C headphones.

Samsung Galaxy Note 10: camera setup

The three cameras installed by Samsung are no longer arranged horizontally in the middle, but vertically on the side. The Note 10 Plus also features a time-of-flight sensor (TOF), which is missing from the smaller model. The Note 10 has a 12-megapixel main sensor on the back, which has three pyhsic apertures (F/1.5, F/1.8 and F/2.4).

The wide-angle sensor offers 16 megapixels and an F/2.2 aperture. An additional camera sensor also enables a double optical zoom and has an F/2.1 aperture. The camera setup is suitable for 4K shots with 60 FPS. HDR10+ images are also supported, and an optical image stabilizer ensures wobble-free shooting.

The front camera is located in the middle of the upper edge of the display and is not hidden behind a notch. It features a 10 megapixel sensor with an F/2.2 aperture and also supports HDR10+ shooting.

Samsung Galaxy Note 10 probably comes in 4 variations

The xda-developers found in the source code of the Galaxy-S10 devices hints for a new device with the code name "DAVINCI5G". Since it is already known that the name of the Italian universal scholar refers to the codename for the note 10, the 5G addition ultimately only allowed the assumption that Samsung is also working on a 5G-capable version of the new phablet. This has now been officially confirmed by the US network operator Verizon. "The note and galaxy that will be released this year will both have 5G," said Verizon CEO Hans Vestberg.

It has long been clear that Samsung is also working on a larger version, the Galaxy Note 10 Plus, in addition to the Note 10; an approach that was previously reserved for Galaxy S devices at Samsung. Samsung may even be working on four models: According to ETNews (via GSMArena), the two Note 10 models will be available in both 5G and LTE versions. The latter is supposed to be a cheaper phablet, which should be interesting for those who are not interested in the new 5G mobile radio standard. The 5G network has to be set up worldwide in the first place. In Germany, this will not start until the end of 2019 at the earliest. In addition, it will take a long time after the launch of the 5G network before it is used by a large part of the population.

Samsung Galaxy Note 10 without microSD slot

Samsung does without another hardware feature in addition to the jack connector for the Note 10. The standard model will not have a microSD slot. The Plus version, on the other hand, will continue to have this feature. This is a novelty for Samsung. Previously, all flagship smartphones had a microSD slot, which users could use to expand their memory with an external card.

Samsung Galaxy Note 10: Larger battery with shorter charging time

Samsung could even make one of the biggest weaknesses his strength with the Galaxy Note 10: The battery. It's supposed to have a much faster charger than other Samsung smartphones. It's supposed to be able to deliver more than 25 watts - we're even talking about 45 watts. The Galaxy S10 offers comparatively only 18 watts and thus lags behind the competition in this respect.

The battery should have a capacity of 4,500 mAh and thus offer 500 mAh more than the model included in Galaxy Note 9. The Galaxy S10 5G also has a 4,500 mAh battery.

The new Note 10 models should also be able to be charged faster via wireless charging.

Galaxy Note 10: Faster & more efficient than the Galaxy S10

Forbes reported that only a few weeks after the release of the S10, Samsung introduced new RAM, memory and camera technologies that surpassed previous standards. While UFS 2.1 memory is still integrated in the S10, the upcoming devices are to be given UFS 3.0. In concrete terms, UFS 3.0 achieves 1,478 and 383 MByte per second for sequential reading and writing of data. The S10, on the other hand, achieves 792 and 193 MByte. In addition to the Galaxy Fold, Samsung will also equip the Galaxy Note 10 with UFS 3.0.

Thanks to a new 2.5 volt power supply, the UFS 3.0 memory should also work more efficiently overall; the performance should therefore be better with lower power consumption.

The Note 10 will get an Exynos 9825 Octacore processor that is stronger and more efficient.

Also 1 TByte memory and 12 GByte RAM under the hood are to be expected. The extended One UI, the Android-based user interface of the Galaxy devices, should also be integrated in Note 10.

The difference in performance between the S10 and the Note 10 will therefore be much greater than with the predecessor models.

Galaxy Note 10 (Plus): Prices should already be fixed

Initial pricing data available for WinFuture indicates an entry price of EUR 999 or more. The smartphone should have 256GB internal flash memory and the equipment should be noticeably better than the basic model of the Galaxy S10 Plus. The Galaxy Note 10 Plus also comes with 256 GB internal memory, but is said to be priced at 1,149 Euros.

The predecessor model Galaxy Note 9 is currently available for about 800 Euro. It was released at prices starting at about 1,000 Euro. The price for the S10 Plus with 512 GB memory is 1,250 Euro and higher.

The Galaxy S10 Plus scored so well in our test that it currently sits at the top of our best mobile phone list and the Galaxy Note 9 still ranks in the top 10 about six months after its release; until the recent release of the S10 series, it even stood on the podium.
