Pre-order deals leaked for the Samsung Galaxy Note 10

Pre-order deals leaked for the Samsung Galaxy Note 10
A tweet from Twitter tipster Evan Blass reveals that all four major U.S. carriers will have deals on the Samsung Galaxy Note 10 once pre-orders on the phone begin. The Galaxy Note 10 series will be unveiled on August 7th at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York. Pre-orders are expected to be accepted immediately after the Unpacked event winds up, with a release date of August 23rd.

All four major U.S. carriers will have a pre-order promotion on the Samsung Galaxy Note 10

Blass tweeted some leaked images revealing early proofs of promotional ads for Verizon, AT&T, T-Mobile, and Sprint. These show what is supposed to be a Galaxy Note 10, a Galaxy Watch, the Galaxy Buds, and the Samsung Wireless Charger Duo Fast Charge Stand. The copy has the logo of each carrier; the one for Verizon says, "Pre-order any [DaVinci] and get a [DaVinci D1] free. The AT&T and T-Mobile proofs read "Pre-order [DaVinci] and get another one FREE." The Sprint layout reads "Get 50% off [DaVinci] with Sprint Flex Lease.

First, we should point out that if you haven't already figured it out, DaVinci is the code name used by Samsung for the Galaxy Note 10. And while we don't know exactly how these deals will work, usually the price of the second phone (in the case of Verizon, AT&T, and T-Mobile) is paid for with monthly bill credits. Often a new line is required thus allowing new and existing subscribers to qualify for the deal. If the price of the 256GB Note 10 is $999 as some expect, the phone could be priced at $41.62 a month over 24 months and the monthly bill credits would amount to the same.

Since Sprint is offering the Galaxy Note 10 through its Flex Lease program, those taking the carrier up on its deal will get 50% off the monthly lease price of the phone for 18 months. After that time period, the subscriber can hand in the phone and walk away from it, or buy the device with a one-time payment or finance the balance over six months. If the Sprint member has signed up for the Galaxy Forever plan, he can also turn in the phone after 12 months for the Galaxy Note 11 and start the leasing process from the beginning.

The Samsung Galaxy Note 10 will be equipped with a 6.3-inch display sporting a 1080 x 2280 resolution. That works out to an aspect ratio of 19:9. With an Infinity-O display, the handset will carry a screen-to-body ratio of 91.34%. In the U.S., the phone will be powered by the Snapdragon 855(+) Mobile Platform while the Exynos 9825 will be under the hood elsewhere. The basic version of the phone will come with 8GB of memory and 256GB of storage. The triple camera setup on back includes a 12MP primary, a 12MP telephoto with 2x optical zoom, and a 16MP wide-angle camera). Keeping the lights on is a 3500mAh battery that fast charges at 25W with a wired charger and 15W for wireless charging.

The phone features an in-display ultrasonic fingerprint scanner and an IP68 certification rating. This means that the handset can be submerged in nearly five feet of water for as long as 30 minutes. Android 9 Pie is pre-installed and PowerShare allows the phone's owner to share some of his battery life using the reverse wireless charging feature.

No matter which U.S. carrier you pre-order the Samsung Galaxy Note 10 from, you will have a deal to consider. And pre-orders will start in just nine days!
