Many people in the market for a new smartphone are anxiously waiting for the Samsung Galaxy Note 10. As we passed along renders of the “standard” version of the phone, apparently which will feature a punch-hole selfie camera right between the center of the display. On the rear is a vertically mounted setup of triple-camera which is a departure from the cameras that are horizontally placed seen on the Galaxy Note 9 and the Galaxy S10 line. And while physical buttons still are found on the render, there is no sign of a 3.5mm headphone jack.
There was speculation earlier this year that Samsung would possibly offer 4 different versions of the Galaxy Note 10, which could include a pair of units to support 5G connectivity (SM-N971 and SM-N976) and also a pair of Galaxy Note 10 models “standard” (SM-N970 and SM-N975).
As the recent updates suggest that the two 5G Galaxy Note 10 handsets were benchmarked, including the top-of-the-line version that is stuffed with a Qualcomm 855 Mobile Platform along with a 12GB of memory.
This unit, SM-N976V, is probably heading to Verizon. The international variant of the same model (SM-N976B) is also powered by an Exynos 9825 SoC with 8GB of memory.
You might wonder about the price of the Galaxy Note 10. According to an unnamed source “familiar with the plans” cited by T3, the Galaxy Note 10 entry level variant will be priced in the neighborhood of $1,100-$1,200 and that is a pretty pricey neighborhood, to say the least, and is approximately $100-$200 more than the $999 price tag seen on Galaxy Note 9 last year. If we compare the 64GB Apple iPhone XS Max is priced at $1,099 and it goes as high as $1,449 for the 512GB unit.
Galaxy Note 10 standard version is expected to feature a 6.3-inch curved AMOLED display. Units headed towards the U.S. will sport the Mobile Platform of Snapdragon 855 while the Exynos 9820 will also be found in other markets. You will also notice an ultrasonic in-display fingerprint scanner, and too happy the hearts of many Samsung fans, apparently, there will be no Bixby button.
The Galaxy Note 10 Pro will feature a 6.75-inch display along with a quad-camera setup on the back. There will be both 5G and 4G LTE versions of these two models, which gets us to the four different variants that are rumored earlier this year.
Pay no less than $46 a month for the Galaxy Note 10
We expect Samsung to uncover the new Galaxy Note 10 line most probably in August. The phone will support a 45W fast charger which is triple the power used for fast charging last year’s Galaxy Note handset and Galaxy S10 line of this year. The Galaxy Note 10 is rumored to sport a 3400mAh battery while a much larger 4500mAh battery is also expected to power the handset.
Since 2011’s first-generation model, the Galaxy Note has come a long way. The OG Galaxy Note is featuring a 5.3-inch display and it seems quite gigantic at the time. The S Pen is introduced by the first Galaxy Note which was revamped for Galaxy Note 9 last year. The S Pen now features support for Bluetooth LE to allows it to act as a remote shutter for the camera and also control some media playback functionalities, and navigate a slideshow remotely. Now, it will be more interesting to see whether Samsung gives the S Pen some new functions this year.
As the Samsung Galaxy Note 10 is shaping up to be a powerhouse, more specifically the Galaxy Note 10 Pro, it is also going to be priced accordingly. So, if you are still wondering about purchasing the phone, expect to pay no less than $46 a month over 24 months for the entry-level version of the handset.
