Samsung Galaxy Note 10 is set to debut on August 7. But just days ahead of its official launch, a rumour has actually emerged online that declares the South Korean giant is set to unveil Exynos 9825 SoC-powered Galaxy Note 10 in the United States market. This is odd particularly if we take a look at the historic record of the company that has brought its flagships to the US market with a Qualcomm SoC instead of its in-house Exynos chipset. In a separate development, smartphone skin and case maker Dbrand has started taking pre-orders for the Galaxy Note 10 and Galaxy Note 10+ skins and wraps. The product listings on the Dbrand site flaunt the back panel of the upcoming Samsung flagships.
Prolific tipster Evan Blass through his Twitter account @evleaks has actually claimed that the Samsung Galaxy Note 10 designs in the US will feature the Eyxnos 9825 SoC– much like their worldwide variations. However, the Verizon-locked Galaxy Note 10 designs are stated to have the Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 SoC.
Samsung has actually so far chosen bringing Qualcomm chipsets on the United States versions of its flagship smartphones. The exception in the case was the Galaxy S6, which was revealed back in 2015, that had actually debuted in the United States with an Exynos chipset.
The preference to the Exynos SoC over the top-end Snapdragon SoC would not bring any visible modification for users as both chipsets are designed to deliver comparable performance outcomes. Also, Samsung may have chosen to continue with the Snapdragon chip specifically for the Verizon version of the Galaxy Note 10 to support its CDMA network in the nation.
In the past, we have actually seen some benchmark listing of the Galaxy Note 10 design including the Exynos 9825 SoC. It brings the design number SM-970F. The Snapdragon SoC variant, on the other hand, appears to have the model number SM-970V.
Along with the rumor around its chipset, the Samsung Galaxy Note 10 in addition to the Galaxy Note 10+ skins and covers have actually made their way to Dbrand. The Canadian brand name has actually noted skins and covers of both new Galaxy Note phones for pre-orders.
The listings on the Dbrand website suggest that Samsung would bring the Galaxy Note 10 models in both Black and White-ish Purple Blue colour choices. Likewise, while the Galaxy Note 10 back appears in the listing sports a triple rear electronic camera setup together with an LED flash, the Galaxy Note 10+ appears to have a devoted ToF (Time-of-Flight) sensing unit together with the triple rear cams.
Additionally, the back panel of the Galaxy Note 10 and Galaxy Note 10+ included on the Dbrand website look similar to what we saw in the current renders.
Samsung is launching the Galaxy Note 10 may be along with the Galaxy Note 10+ on August 7. The launch occasion is occurring in New York at 4pm ET
