Samsung Galaxy Note 10 is set to make a big appearance on August 7. However, only days in front of its formal launch, a rumor has developed online that claims the South Korean giant is set to reveal Exynos 9825 SoC-powered Galaxy Note 10 in the US market. This is odd particularly if we look at the historical record of the company that has carried its flagships to the US market with a Qualcomm SoC rather than of its in-house Exynos chipset. In a different development, smartphone skin and case maker Dbrand has begun taking pre-orders for the Galaxy Note 10 and Galaxy Note 10+ skins and wraps. The item listings on the Dbrand site show off the back board of the upcoming Samsung flagships.
Prolific tipster Evan Blass through his Twitter account @evleaks has guaranteed that the Samsung Galaxy Note 10 models in the US will accompany the Eyxnos 9825 SoC – simply like their worldwide variations. In any case, the Verizon-bolted Galaxy Note 10 models are said to have the Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 SoC.
Samsung has so far favored bringing Qualcomm chipsets on the US variants of its flagship smartphones. The exemption in the case was the galaxy s6, which was uncovered back in 2015, that had debuted in the US with an Exynos chipset.
The preference to the Exynos SoC over the top-end Snapdragon SoC would not bring any recognizable change for users as both chipsets are intended to convey similar execution results. Additionally, Samsung may have chosen to proceed with the Snapdragon chip explicitly for the Verizon version of the Galaxy Note 10 to support its CDMA network in the country.
Previously, we have seen some benchmark posting of the Galaxy Note 10 model including the Exynos 9825 SoC. It conveys the model number SM-970F. The Snapdragon SoC variant, then again, seems to have the model number SM-970V.
Alongside the rumour around its chipset, the Samsung Galaxy Note 10 alongside the Galaxy Note 10+ skins and wraps have advanced towards Dbrand. The Canadian brand has recorded skins and wraps of both new Galaxy Note phones for pre-orders.
The listings on the Dbrand site propose that Samsung would bring the Galaxy Note 10 models in both Black and White-ish Purple Blue color choices. Likewise, while the Galaxy Note 10 back shows up in the listing supports a triple rear camera setup alongside an LED flash, the Galaxy Note 10+ appears to have a dedicated ToF (Time-of-Flight) sensor alongside the triple rear cameras.
Additionally, the back panel of the Galaxy Note 10 and Galaxy Note 10+ highlighted on the Dbrand site appear to be like what we found in the ongoing renders.
Samsung is launching the Galaxy Note 10 –might be along with Galaxy Note 10+ — on August 7. The launch occasion is occurring in New York at 4 pm ET.
