Expect long battery life for the 4G Samsung Galaxy Note 10 Pro

Expect long battery life for the 4G Samsung Galaxy Note 10 Pro
While many consumers were eagerly awaiting the Samsung Galaxy S10 line, others had their sights set on another Samsung Galaxy series that is expected to be released later this year. No, not the Samsung Galaxy Fold. Like Sammy's current flagship range, this highly anticipated phone line also has the number 10 in its name. The Galaxy S10 5G? Nope. It is the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.

The Samsung Galaxy Note was the first smartphone from a major manufacturer to carry a 5-inch display. But the large screen-size isn't what brings buyers back to the device, it's the S Pen. We've seen a number of comments from experienced phone buyers who said that they would pass on the Galaxy Fold because they can get a large screen with the Note 10 and the S Pen. This year, we could see as many as four different Note 10 models with up to two 4G LTE variants and two with 5G support. The screen sizes of the units are rumored to measure 6.28-inches and 6.75-inches.

A publication from Korea known as KC (via GSM Arena) has posted a photograph of the battery that it claims will be used in one version of the Galaxy Note 10.  This model will be known as the 4G LTE enabled Galaxy Note 10 Pro and will carry the SM-N975 model number (the Galaxy Note 9 is SM-N960). The battery in the photo has a 4500mAh capacity, which is a 13% bump over the capacity of the 4000mAh battery that powers the Galaxy Note 9. It also is the same size as the battery that will power up the Galaxy S10 5G. The part number is EB-BN975AB and it was recently certified by the Korea Institute of Industrial Technology. According to a tweet from tipster IceUniverse (@UniverseIce), the fast charger on the Galaxy Note 10 Pro will weigh in at 25W. That compares with the 15W fast charger used with the Galaxy S10 line. It also matches the 25W charging available with the new Galaxy A70 mid-ranger.

Samsung is no longer constrained by the memories of the Galaxy Note 7


The latest rumor has Samsung introducing the Galaxy Note 10 series in August. The more expensive Pro variant is said to feature the same hexa-camera setup that the Galaxy 10 5G sports. That includes four cameras on the back (12MP primary with OIS + 12MP telephoto with 2x optical zoom + 16MP ultra-wide angle+ depth sensor) and two selfie snappers in front. The basic version of the Galaxy Note 10 will reportedly have a penta-camera setup that includes everything on the Note 10 Pro except for the depth sensor. The U.S. version of all Note 10 units will be powered by the Snapdragon 855 Mobile Platform, equipped with at least 8GB of memory.


Talking about the Galaxy Note and batteries still brings up the bad memories of the Samsung Galaxy Note 7. That phone, launched in August 2016, was on its way to becoming one of the most successful handsets released by Samsung. But a problem with the 3500mAh battery in the device caused several units to explode. As a result, Samsung twice recalled the model, first replacing the battery employed on the phone. After the second recall, Samsung stopped production of the Galaxy Note 7 and recalled all units owned by the public. Some owners of the device refused to exchange it for another Samsung phone forcing the company to send out updates that essentially prevented the phone from working. To bolster the public's confidence in the model, the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 came with a smaller 3300mAh battery. By the time the Galaxy Note 9 was launched last year, the Galaxy Note 7 debacle was forgotten by most consumers allowing the manufacturer to equip it with a 4000mAh battery.

Not unless they ditch that Exynos and tune One UI/Experience UI/TouchWiz better

Are you only referring to the Exynos version? Ever since my Note 8's been updated to Pie my battery life is like it was when it was brand new. I take my phone off the charger at 5 AM & it's at 50% by 5 PM.

When was the last time you used a Samsung phone?

This could be the first year since the Note 4 that I consider getting a Note device. I have been using my Stylo 4 as a backup and though I don't use the stylus very often, I admit, it does come in handy on occasion. That battery is looking mighty good as an iPhone user lol.

That S-Pen has become very important for me man, I use it a lot. Only Notes, and iPhones for me.

28. oldskool50 unregistered

Most Samsung Note users, don't use the stylus on the daily. Just liek many phoen have features you don't use on the daily. But it comes in handy when you need it, which is exactly what we've been telling you every year since the Note came out. The stylus is simply another form of input and there are times where a pen/pencil is a better form of input then a finger. Yes on a phone you can most certainly write with your finger. But you cannot write with your finger with the exact same accuracy or quality. But after years of hating on the Note and claiming its just an S with a pen, maybe you've woken up to the fact the Note is unique and the pen is more than a gimmicky toy.

I'm still using the note 4, I love it that much. I buy batteries from the same guy every year on ebay, and they are great. Always come charged at 50% which is good, and they are new. The phone has 3gigs of ram which is one less than today's pixels. 2k screen. Still runs fast enough for me. Long live the mighty note 4

Its part of history just like how fold fails in two days. Now Samsung should fix it asap for primetime. Imagine if those folds were in the hands of users and suddenly in no time stop working.

This entire comment makes no sense. You mean to tell me when an issue is over it's still worth bringing up? Try that in your relationship, both as the initiator & the recipient & let me know how that works.

30. oldskool50 unregistered

He's not in a real relationship. His only relations have been with his iPhone.

29. oldskool50 unregistered

You mean like how many iPhone's have stopped working right after people have bought them?

17. pimpin83z

Right. Almost 3 years later & they still bring it up & guess what; when the Note 10 launches they'll bring it up again. SMH.

Nor do they have too. And we have better fodder to use if we wanted too. How many iPhone's have killed people and destroyed property? iPhone has burned down houses, electrocuted its user to death, and caused an airplane to go down and flames and kill everyone inside. All 66 people were killed.https://observer.com/2018/05/iphone-caught-fire-caused-2016-egyptian-plane-crash-lawsuit/ The Note 7 has 5M units sold with the 2 batches and out of them, only 100 showed any issue, and only 62 actually ever caught fire. None of them killed anyone, and it has been confirmed no property was every destroyed. A couple people were injured. Injured is far different than died.

I'm not a fan of big smartphones, but those who love big smartphones for them, a note is ideal.

That's how I felt about the first 2 Notes & partially about ther Note 3 until I got it.

"The Samsung Galaxy Note was the first smartphone to carry a 5-inch display." Yes, the Note surely popularized and paved the way for screen sizes of 5" and above, but the first was the Dell Streak.

I plan on preordering the larger Note 10 Pro 5g as soon as its available. Still waiting on confirmation of 12GB LPDDR4X RAM and 1 TB UFS 3.0 availability. I just hope they don't gimp it like the S10 5g.

I have a feeling the note 10 won't have a notch. Let's wait and see I guess. Cant wait for this.

The Note10 will have a very slightly refined design of the Galaxy S10

Well, the S10 doesn't have a notch. Now, I would mind the design of the A80 with its rotating camera.

I wish we could talk about the Note 7 more. ?

We can. It's just depending on who's talking about it determines whether the talks are positive or negative.

PA: Samsung Galaxy Note 11 has come out and has redefined what we think about smartphone's. They managed to put a 5600mah battery inside a 6.7inch screen with a screen to body ratio 93%. They have really come along way since the Note 7 that literally bombed. Even the Airlines didn't allow these devices on planes what a mess. But we are so glad people have forgotting about how Samsung had to carrier the Note 5 for an extended period of time and offer longer update support for it's aged flagship.

PA: Samsung Galaxy Note 15 has come out and has altered the mindset of what we think about electronic devices in our lives. They managed to put a flexible battery inside a stretchable display with 98% screen to body ratio. They have really come along way since the Note 7 that literally bombed. Even the Airlines didn't allow these devices on planes what a mess. But we are so glad people have forgetting about how Samsung had to carrier the Note 5 for an extended period of time and offer longer update support for it's aged flagship.

If it's reviewed by you guys than the battery life will be ok and not great.
