Galaxy Note 10 will come in two sizes, use big rapid-charging batteries, hole-punch selfie...

  1. Droid Life has obtained and published some of Samsung’s marketing materials. While they don't reveal too much that we don't already know, the slides confirm several of the rumors we have previously reported.

    There will, of course, be two versions of the phone. The regular Note 10 will have a 6.3-inch screen and the Note 10+ with a 6.8-inch display (previously reported as 6.7-inch). Both versions will also have hole-punch front-facing cameras.

    The materials indicated that the Note 10 and 10+ would have a 3400mAh and 4300mAh battery, respectively. Additionally, rumors of 45-watt rapid-charging support seem confirmed. A previous leak indicated that rapid charging would only be for the Note10+, but the slides did not make this distinction.

    There was also a bit on the new stylus (S Pen) coming with the Note. Samsung describes the S Pen as a “magic wand for your smartphone.” The next-generation smart stylus will support “air gestures, remote photos, and handwriting-to-text.”

    The presentation does not confirm any specific specs. However, its marketing-speak certainly makes it sound like more than just a phone.

    “Next-level power. With Galaxy Note 10 we haven’t just made a new smartphone. We’ve designed a computer that’s a gaming console, that’s a film studio, and an intelligent pen, all in one device.”

    Samsung will likely have more specific information to share on Wednesday during Unpacked in New York. Droid Life also suspects that pre-orders for the Note 10 and 10+ will open after the event. Samsung already has a reservation page where customers can pre-select their carrier and whether they will be taking advantage of the trade-in credit being offered.

    Does it still use the outdated snapdragon 855? or did they get a better processor?

    CPU speed is irrelevant for phones. My Note 2 still works fine in the CPU department but is slow because of slow storage and runs out of RAM all the time. I can tell because all the animations run smooth once they finish loading from storage which can take up to a minute. All games run smooth until they run out of RAM and start blacking out textures and crash. Then all the GUI has to reload because it was removed from RAM too... The most important thing for a phone speed is the storage speed and to have the most RAM you can possibly have. This way it will last long. Any CPU from the last 5 years is fine for speed unless you compare benchmark scores that is...

    Hole-punch slab reminds me of looking at (big) keychains.

    I'm running the 845 in my Note 9 and have zero issues with its speed. I'm long past the day of bench marking and modding though so I could care less about the internals. I just want a headphone jack.

    Only slow down is little after restarting, it hangs terribly and is super unresponsive.

    Note10 looks great, but, unless it's truly remarkable in what it's claiming in the main post, it's a pass.
    Il stick with my Note9 for 2 more years (hopefully)
