The Galaxy Note10 is getting closer and closer, and we have a summary and breakdown of rumors about key aspects of the upcoming launch and features of the phone. Read our Q & A style guide to get the latest information on the new Samsung Note in an easy-to-read, easy-to-digest format.
A: August 7
Samsung launched the Galaxy Note9 on August 9, 2018. According to CNET, the next note will be released on the 7th of August this year. Given that CNET is a large, reliable publication with a good track record of rumors, you can probably make August 7 the date you mark on your calendar. Although phone starts can always be delayed, they are usually planned very early and require significant coordination of venue, service, and travel arrangements. That is, once a date is selected, it is not trivial to change it. Since it is only two days before the start of the Note9 last year, the story is also on the side of this rumor. This seems pretty safe.
Design and Appearance
A: These renderings and photos basically tell us.
It's not surprising that Samsung's new phones have been inexorably posted in 3D form by talented rendering artists with access to leaked CAD data . The best view of the Note10 + (previously rumored to be the Note10 Pro) is this video below, but look at this post for pictures.
You can find similar representations of the smaller standard Note10 in a similar way here. No official press photos have been leaked yet, and we will probably take a clearer and more accurate look at Samsung's design language.
Some photos of the Note10 + are also leaked, although the quality of the pictures leaves something to be desired. They do not tell us much, but they are shown above. We can confirm the circular, centered camera cutout on the front (that is, the Note10 has only one camera on the front), and it looks like the larger Note10 is not "Pro" but the Note10 +.
A: We do not know, but we can guess ($ 1000-1200 probably seem)
No reliable information about the price of the Galaxy Note10 or The larger Note10 + model (formerly called the grade 10 "Pro" ) is still leaked. While a Russian site claims a starting price of between $ 1,100 and $ 1,200, it is (probably) possible for it to convert from Russian currency to publish a meaningful number for Western readers. In fact, the best insight we can offer is to take a look at the phones that Samsung currently has on offer.
The Galaxy S10 + was sold at the time of the first announcement for $ 1000 full EIA. Samsung has since frequently discounted it, and a recent sale on Samsung's official US website has unlocked it for $ 900. Given the fact that we expect two Galaxy Note10 models, I sincerely doubt that the "smaller" 6.28-inch Note10 model, which is supposedly more expensive than the original 6.4-inch Galaxy S10 + with $ 1000 MSRP. More likely, Samsung will charge the smaller $ 10 for $ 1,000 and keep the Galaxy S10 +'s price at or below $ 900 in the future. As for the larger 6.75-inch Note10 +, which supposedly contains an SD card slot and an additional depth-sensing camera, I would not be surprised to see a price of $ 1150, possibly something more – Even though I myself would be $ 1,200 a step too far.
I think these prices are likely for one simple reason: Apple: The prices for the 64 GB iPhone XS and XS Max are $ 1000 and $ 1100, respectively, and I think that is extremely unlikely Samsung would have a significantly higher price As Apple demand, however, it is expected that the Note10 + starts at 256 GB of storage space, while the regular version is expected to start at 128 GB. When Apple's new iPhones hit the market in September, they expect 128GB When the Note10 + launches with 256GB capacity, Samsung has some leeway to justify a price difference of over $ 100 between the smaller and larger models, let alone the larger display, the battery, the microSD slot and the fourth rear camera. Expect 512GB and 1TB models, too. However, prices are harder to determine. Samsung calculates a premium of 150 USD for the 512 GB S10 + over the 256 GB model and an additional 350 USD for the 1 TB version. So it's quite possible that a 4G Note10 + reaches a maximum far north of $ 1700 in the top configuration.
It's a little harder for 5G versions of the Note10 +. Samsung offers the Galaxy S10 + 5G in the US for $ 1300 at Verizon and Sprint and it is a little smaller (6.70 ") than the supposedly 6.75" big Note10 +. While the note probably contains better cameras and a pen (of course), I'm not sure if that's enough to surpass the $ 1300 mark, or if the price of the S10 + 5G is simply lowered to make room for it in carrier constellations. The operators will of course have no idea what the price for the 5G grade is (Samsung probably will not sell an unlocked model in the US) so we'll have to wait and see it.
