    Update: Okay, so it looks like there is no microSD slot on the cheaper Galaxy Note 10. The source of this report has updated the article to reflect the fact that only the Galaxy Note 10+ has a microSD slot, supporting a leak from earlier today that said the same thing.

    Original story follows

    Another day, another conflicting report about the Galaxy Note 10. The latest report comes from a source who has been right on several occasions in the past. It reiterates that the Galaxy Note 10 camera is going to have a very unique feature.

    It also dispels the impression that there won't be a microSD card slot on the cheaper Galaxy Note 10. Some additional details are included about the device's S Pen as well. Samsung is introducing a couple of new features to the stylus as well.

    Galaxy Note 10's camera will be unlike any other smartphone

    It was first reported several weeks ago that the Galaxy Note 10 camera might have a three-stage variable aperture. Samsung introduced its dual aperture camera system with the Galaxy S9 last year. It could switch between the larger f/1.5 and the narrower f/2.4 aperture. The Galaxy Note 10 was rumored to add f/1.8 to the mix as well.

    That's what this report claims as well. The Galaxy Note 10's triple rear camera is said to have a primary 12MP sensor with three-stage variable aperture. This would allow the camera to switch between f/1.5, f/1.8 and f/2.4 as need be. The f/1.8 aperture would prove to be effective for intermediate cases when the scene isn't too brightly lit or too dark, allowing for more flexibility and better results. The setup includes a 16MP wide-angle camera and a 12MP telephoto lens with 2x optical zoom. There's apparently going to be an action cam mode for the camera as well. A 10MP camera will be present up front.

    There's hope yet for the microSD card slot

    Multiple reports have claimed that the 6.3-inch Galaxy Note 10 won't have a microSD card slot, that it would be reserved for the larger Galaxy Note 10+. Not only does this report contradict that, but it also claims that the device will have two nano-SIM card slots. Since it won't be a hybrid solution, you will be able to run two SIMs at the same time while also having a microSD card in place.

    To recap the new flagship's specs, it will feature Qualcomm's Snapdragon 855 processor in select markets while Samsung's 2.7GHz Exynos 9825 will be present in the most widely distributed models. It will be paired with at least 8GB of LPDDR4X-based RAM. There should be at least 256GB of internal storage (UFS 3.0) at least in the European variants. The S Pen is once again said to provide gesture control. You will apparently be able to navigate around the UI by just hovering the S Pen above the display. It's no surprise to hear that the Galaxy Note 10 will have a 3,500mAh battery and support for 25W fast charging.

    If the Galaxy Note 10 camera has a three-stage variable aperture than the Galaxy Note 10+ will most certainly do as well. The same goes for the new stylus functionality and nano-SIM card slots. The display size and resolution, ToF sensor, bigger battery and faster 45W charging will be some of the key differences between these devices.

    Samsung is going to unveil the Galaxy Note 10 on August 7. It's expected to hit stores on August 23 with prices starting at 999 euro for the Galaxy Note 10's base model.
