Samsung Galaxy Note 10/10+ now rumored to have 15W PowerShare, Snapdragon 855 Plus, and S Pen “Air Action” gestures
We’re a little over two weeks away from the Samsung Galaxy Note 10 series being officially announced. In typical Samsung flagship phone fashion, we know almost everything about the upcoming devices. Once again, Samsung seems to be throwing everything they have at the Note line this year. A bevy of features and leaks have popped up recently, so let’s catch up.
The specs for the Galaxy Note 10 and Note 10+ are finally being nailed down. First, the Galaxy Note 10 is said to have a 6.3-inch display with Infinity-O cutout, Snapdragon 855 Plus (despite previous reports) or Exynos 9825 SoC, 8GB of RAM, 256GB of storage, triple cameras (12MP, 16MP wide-angle, 12MP telephoto), and 3600mAh battery. In terms of charging, it will support 45W charging and PowerShare, Samsung’s name for its reverse wireless charging feature, gets upgraded to 15W. It will come with a 25W wired charger, however. The upgraded S Pen will have “Air Actions” gestures.
The Galaxy Note 10+ has very similar specs, but a few extras here and there. The display is larger at 6.8-inches with the same Infinity-O cutout. It’s also powered by the Snapdragon 855+ or Exynos 9825 SoC, 12GB of RAM, and 256GB of storage (with microSD support!). The camera setup is also, surprisingly, the same (12MP, 16MP wide-angle, 12MP telephoto), except for an extra ToF sensor. The battery is bigger at 4300mAh and it has the same charging specs and S Pen features.

As you can see from the chart above, we have a really good idea of what the Galaxy Note 10 series will have to offer. 15W PowerShare is one upgrade from the Galaxy S10 that should make the feature more valuable. There are still a few things up in the air, like the colors that will be available, how many models will come to carriers, what exactly “Air Actions” can do, etc. We still have a couple of weeks before the August 7th event, so there’s time to figure out the rest. So far, the Note 10 is looking great.
