It was just a few hours ago that we along with Ishan Agarwal released the first renders of Samsung’s upcoming phablet – the Samsung Galaxy Note 10+. Close on the heels of that major development, we have also come to learn that Samsung plans to launch a separate 5G capable version of the Galaxy Note 10 in select markets across the globe. Needless to say, the 5G version of the Galaxy Note 10 is likely to be the most expensive Note Series device ever and will come with several additional features over and above the standard variant.
Let’s now take a look at what the 5G variant of the handset has to offer.
Samsung Galaxy Note 10 5G Expected Specifications
At launch, the Samsung Galaxy Note 10 5G is expected to become the most expensive Galaxy Note series device that Samsung has ever shipped. Even the base version of the 5G variant is rumored to come with 256GB of internal storage. The phone will also be offered in 512GB and 1TB storage options. The flagship version with 1TB of storage is also likely to feature 12GB of RAM while the less expensive 256/512GB versions will feature 8GB of RAM. As far as the LTE versions of the Galaxy Note 10 is concerned, the base version is expected to feature 128GB of storage – going up to 1TB of storage for the top version.
Samsung Galaxy Note 10+: What we know from the recent leaks
The recently leaked images of the Galaxy Note 10+ indicates that the device will feature a large 6.75-inch Super AMOLED panel with a thin ‘bindi-like’ punch hole camera in the top-center part of the display. The display will almost certainly be the most advanced panel that Samsung has ever made and will boast of QHD+ resolution and HDR10 support.
The absence of a rear-mounted fingerprint scanner indicates that the handset will feature an in-display fingerprint scanner. This is likely to be an ultra-sonic scanner similar to the one we saw on the Galaxy S10 series. The Galaxy Note 10 will be powered by the latest chipsets from Qualcomm or Samsung depending on where you buy it from. India, as usual, will get the Exynos variant.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 10 gets a quad-camera setup at the rear with one of the cameras doubling up as a ToF sensor to gather depth information. The images also indicate the presence of an LED flash at the rear. Even after the leaked images are out, it is difficult to ascertain whether or not the phone gets a 3.5mm audio jack. As for the front camera, this is expected to feature a 10-megapixel sensor with support for PDAF. The primary rear camera is likely to feature a 48MP sensor with some reports talking about it being a 12MP sensor. While we do not have details regarding the other two cameras, it is safe to assume that the phone will feature a zoom lens and an ultra-wide lens.
Samsung is expected to unveil the new Galaxy Note 10 series at the UNPACKED event scheduled for August 7, 2019.
