The Samsung Galaxy Note 10 's upcoming launch on August 7 will leave, and leaks behind it will probably be more powerful than the Galaxy S10, according to leaked specs for both it and the beefier Samsung Galaxy Note 10 Plus.
The Note 10 specs come courtesy of noted league Steve H. McFly in a two-tweet flurry. The biggest revelation? Snapdragon 855 Plus chipset, which goes against a previous report claiming they're getting the standard Snapdragon 855.
That alone puts them ahead of the pack Galaxy S10 family released in March.
The specs note that the alternate chipset is the Exynos 9825 (presumably for handsets going to non-US regions), despite prior rumors asserting it would be the slightly older Exynos 9820.
According to my sources: # GalaxyNote10 = 6.3-inch Infinity-O AMOLED, SD855 + or Exynos9825 (7nm), 8GB RAM + 256GB ROM, 12MP Wide + 16MP Ultra Wide + 12MP Zoom, 3600mAh with 45W charging + 15W PowerShare + 25W charger, UFS3.0, S-Pen with "Air Actions" gestures. July 23, 2019
Note (har) the differences between the normal and the Note 10 Plus: a larger 4,300mAh battery, a time-of -Flight sensor, and a larger 6.8-inch screen – all of which appeared in previous Samsung Galaxy Note 10 le aks.
GalaxyNote10Plus = 6.8-inch Infinity-O AMOLED, SD855 + or Exynos9825 (7nm), 8GB RAM + 256GB ROM, 12MP Wide + 16MP Ultra Wide + 12MP Zoom + DepthVision ToF, 4300mAh with 45W charging + 15W PowerShare + 25W charger, UFS3.0, S-Pen with "Air Actions" gestures. July 23, 2019
So cool? The S-Pen with "Air Actions" gestures – which could be the 'gesture control' we heard about in a very recent rumor .
And while we're still not clear how fast the Samsung Galaxy S10 phones' battery-donating Wireless PowerShare feature is – one PhoneArena report claims 4.5W – these leaked specs suggest the Note 10 will be 15W of power. Not bad for wireless charging!
Cameras: just like the Galaxy S10 phones … or not?
Today's Note 10 specs leak so the rear cameras: a triple-lens setup with a 12MP wide main, a 16MP ultrawide and 12MP zoom lens (along with the aforementioned ToF depth lens on the bigger Note 10 Pro phone). Sound familiar? It's the exact same setup as the rear cameras on the Samsung Galaxy S10 .
Or is it? Samsung has packed its flagships with dual-aperture main lenses – in the S10's case, that's 12MP wide – that automatically switches between f / 1.5 and f / 2.4 depending on the level of light. reaffirms a previous prediction that the Note 10 phones will get a third aperture setting – f / 1.8 – for more nuanced phone photography.
That new note 10 camera rumor so touches on another inconclusive feature: or not it wants to get a microSD slot. The report claims it will not, but asserts that the bigger Note 10 Pro will get one.
