Samsung, one of the leading smartphone brands, is now gearing up to launch their next flagship series. Samsung Unpacked event for the launch of the Galaxy Note 10 line-up is scheduled for August 7. Here's everything we know so far about the upcoming Galaxy Note 10 devices.
Launch date and naming scheme
As mentioned above, the Samsung Galaxy Note 10 series will be unveiled at a Samsung Unpacked event on August 7. The event will take place at Barclays Center in New York, for which the media invites have already been rolled out. Just like every year, the whole event is also expected to be live-streamed via companies official YouTube channel and website so that fans from anywhere around the globe can enjoy the event.
As far as the naming scheme is concerned, the South Korean giant is expected to launch three variants of the smartphone, the Galaxy Note 10, Galaxy Note 10+ and the Galaxy Note+ 5G. The cheapest of the bunch has been given the codename “Da Vinci” internally and it has received the model number SM-N975F.
While the Galaxy Note 10 is expected to sport a 6.3-inch Super AMOLED display, the Note 10 Plus will come with a larger 6.7-inch panel. Since the Galaxy S10 and S10 Plus came with in-display fingerprint scanners, we can confidently say that the Note 10 line-up will also get such tech. Both the Note 10 and Note 10 Plus will be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 processor for the US market whereas the other countries will get the Exynos 9825 powered variant.
Samsung Galaxy Note 10, Note 10 Plus and Note 10 Plus 5G will come with up to 12GB of RAM and 512GB of onboard storage. There are chances that the company might bring a 1TB variant as well. However, there will be further room for expansion with the hybrid SIM slot, which will accept wither one SIM card and a microSD card or two SIM cards.
The Galaxy Note 10 is expected to feature a 3,500mAh battery with support for either 25W or 45W fast charging. Since the Note 10 Plus has a larger display, it will also get a larger battery at 4,500mAh. Both the smartphones will run on Google's Android 9 Pie operating system with Samsung's OneUI layered on top of it. Samsung Galaxy Note 10 series will come without a headphone jack as well as the dedicated Bixby button.
As far as the optics are concerned, the Galaxy Note 10 will come with a triple camera setup at the back consisting of a 12-megapixel primary, a 12-megapixel secondary and a 16-megapixel ultrawide lens. While the Note 10 Plus will have a similar setup, it will also come with a ToF (Time of Flight) sensor.
According to the leaks and rumours, the Samsung Galaxy Note 10 will be priced at EUR 999 whereas the Plus variant will go on sale with a starting price tag of EUR 1149.
