While Samsung is already allowing customers to register their interest for its next Galaxy Note
smartphone family, until now, the company has not mentioned the new series' name. Today, however, it's been discovered that several official Samsung websites have support pages for the Galaxy Note 10+
, model number SM-N975F. Thus, Samsung is inadvertently confirming what numerous leaks have been suggesting for quite some time: a Note 10+ will be released alongside a regular Note 10
The newly discovered Galaxy Note 10+ support pages can be seen at Samsung Romania
, Samsung Slovakia
, and other European websites. They do not reveal too many details about the upcoming smartphone, but they tell us that the device runs Android 9 Pie, having variants with 256 GB and 512 GB of storage space.
Galaxy Note 10+ 512 GB confirmed!
Thanks to leaksters Roland Quandt
and Max J.
, a few Note 10+ color variants have been revealed, too: Aura Glow, Aura Black, and Aura White. Other colors and storage options might also be available.
The Note 10+ is a larger, superior Note 10
Design-wise, the Note 10 and Note 10+ won't differ much, both having almost bezel-less displays
with singular front holes for selfie cameras - possibly as seen in our render above. Nevertheless, the Note 10+ will be a superior handset, as its name obviously suggests. According to rumors and leaked specs
, the Galaxy Note 10+ sports a 6.8-inch Dynamic AMOLED screen with 1440 x 3040 pixels. This makes it larger than the regular Note 10, which allegedly has a 6.3-inch Dynamic AMOLED screen with 1080 x 2280 pixels. Furthermore, The Note 10+ is expected to pack 12 GB of RAM and a 4300 mAh battery, as opposed to 8 GB of RAM and a 3500 mAh battery that are allegedly found inside the Note 10.
Another difference reportedly concerns the main cameras of the new Notes. While the regular Note 10 should have a triple rear camera with 2x optical zoom, the Note 10+ might feature a quad camera with 2x optical zoom - the fourth camera could include a Time-of-Flight sensor, similar to that of the Samsung Galaxy S10 5G, providing extra data that's going to help with portrait photos and augmented reality content.

Both the Note 10 and Note 10+ could be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 Plus processor, at least in the US. Moreover, the two phones should feature improved S Pen styluses, dust and water resistance, and support for microSD cards. Interestingly, the devices might be the first in the Galaxy Note series not to feature standard 3.5mm audio jacks
(but, who knows, perhaps Samsung will include some good-quality USB Type-C or wireless headphones
in the box).
Samsung Galaxy Note 10 series price, release date
Samsung will officially unveil the Galaxy Note 10 and Note 10+
next month, on August 7. The company is expected to start selling the new Android phone
series not long after that, on August 24. A Galaxy Note 10+ 5G
should also be announced soon, and it looks like this will be released on Verizon Wireless (although this doesn't exclude its availability on other carriers at some point later).
When it comes to prices, the Galaxy Note 10 should unsurprisingly be cheaper than the Plus variant. More exactly, the Note 10 might be sold in the US starting at $999, while the Note 10+ could cost at least $1,149. Of course, prices may vary depending on carriers (which, terms and conditions applying, will likely offer various discounts or gifts with the new Notes).
From what's currently known about the Samsung Galaxy Note and Note 10+, which of the two handsets do you think you'll want to buy, if any?
