Some specifications of the Galaxy Note 10 have been leaked before its expected launch in the second half of this year.
In particular, the Galaxy Note 10 is reported to have a shorter charging time than the previous Galaxy S10 5G and a simplified design with buttons such as earphone terminals eliminated. In addition, it will reportedly come in two versions, LTE and 5G, and be equipped with an Infiniti-O display, which fills the entire front of the smartphone except the camera holes.
According to foreign IT media outlets, including Sammobile, the Galaxy Note 10 has rapid charging speed of 45 W, which is higher than 25 W of the Galaxy S10 5G. It is about twice as fast as the Galaxy S10 5G charging speed.
Recently, Android Police said, in an interview with a source familiar with Samsung Electronics, that it is highly likely that physical buttons such as a headphone jack and a volume control will be removed from the Galaxy Note 10. The physical buttons are likely to be replaced with buttons that are slightly protruding or “push buttons (touch sensor)” with a different texture.
"Google, One Plus, Huawei, and Apple have both dropped the headphone jack on premium devices," said Android Police. With the launch of Samsung’s wireless earphone Galaxy Buzz, it is likely that headphone jacks will not be found in the Galaxy Note 10.
In addition, sources expect the new Galaxy Note to be available in two LTE models, the SM-N975 (pro) and the SM-N970 (general), equipped with a 6.75-inch and 6.28-inch display, respectively. The 5G lineup of each model will be launched in the future. The Galaxy Note 10 is known to be equipped with an Infinity-O display with SM-N975 equipped with a 4,000 mAh and SM-N970 with a 3,400 mAh battery. These models are equipped with quad and triple camera lenses, respectively.
The Galaxy Note 10 is likely to be released in August. In general, the Galaxy Note series are released at the end of August and launched in early September. As a result, the Galaxy Fold is likely to be launched in July, earlier than August when the Galaxy Note 10 is expected to be launched. Samsung Electronics delayed the release of the Galaxy Fold, which was originally scheduled for April, due to quality stabilization. The company plans to re-announce the re-release date of the Galaxy Fold.
