Latest Galaxy Note 10 leak details battery capacities and the new S Pen

A new Galaxy Note 10 leak provides some information about the battery capacities of the upcoming flagship. It also sheds some light on the improvements made to the new S Pen. The leak does come from a relatively unknown source so take the information with a grain of salt.

Much of it is line with what we already know about the Galaxy Note 10 and Galaxy Note 10+ so far. It’s a done deal that there will be two separate models. Both will have slightly different battery capacities but will otherwise be the same as far as the design is concerned.

Another day, another Galaxy Note 10 leak

As per this leak, the 6.3-inch display of the Galaxy Note 10 will offer Full HD+ resolution. It’s said to weigh 168g with a 3,500mAh battery. The lower resolution should be helpful in stretching battery life.

This has worked well for the Galaxy S10e and should work well for the Galaxy Note 10 as well. Apparently, the increase over the Galaxy Note 8’s 3,400mAh battery has been made possible by the decision to remove the 3.5mm headphone jack. The 6.75-inch Galaxy Note 10+ will offer QHD+ resolution. It will weigh 198g with a 4,300mAh battery. It’s slightly bigger than the Galaxy Note 9’s 4,000mAh battery.

It’s already known that both Galaxy Note 10 models will support 25W fast charging. This report reiterates that the Galaxy Note 10+ will support 45W fast charging but customers will be required to purchase a separate charger for it. The larger flagship is said to feature 256GB of internal storage and 12GB RAM on the base model.

The new S Pen will reportedly be capable of letting you do more without actually having to touch the display with the tip. That’s kind of like how you can already scroll webpages by hovering the S Pen at the top or bottom corner. A similar gesture may be used for flipping through the images in the Gallery, for example. The S Pen will apparently also make a marker-like sound when taking notes to add a touch of realism.

While the camera performance will be more or less similar to the Galaxy S10, a zoom audio-like feature that we saw on LG phones a few years ago might be present. It lets users focus on what they want to hear by zooming into a particular area. The phone then tries to amplify the sound coming from that area and reduces background noise. At least that’s how LG described zoom audio.

Given that this source doesn’t have much of a track record, don’t take the information at face value just yet. Even though it’s all quite within the realm of possibility. Samsung is due to unveil the Galaxy Note 10/Note 10+ on August 7 in New York City.
