New Galaxy Note 10 leak lists storage count, contradictory battery info
The same size battery in both models, allegedly
Initial rumors pointed towards the presence of a 4,500mAh battery inside the Galaxy Note 10 Pro and a 4,300mAh cell inside the standard model. Later, information provided in a separate report suggested the smaller device would actually feature a 3,400mAh battery. Today’s leak, however, implies that both are wrong, although it’s worth taking the information with a pinch of salt.
According to the report, both the Galaxy Note 10 and Galaxy Note 10 Pro, which are referred to internally as Project D2 and D2-X, will arrive equipped with 4,170mAh batteries. These capacities could be possible, but they may also be wrong, and here’s why.
Starting with the Galaxy Note 10 Pro, the smartphone is expected to be more or less the same size as the Galaxy S10 5G – it’s a 0.3mm shorter and 0.3mm wider. The latter includes a huge 4,500mAh battery, but the presence of Samsung’s S Pen in the Note 10 Pro naturally means achieving the same capacity is much harder. As recent leaks have revealed, though, the 3.5mm headphone jack is reportedly being removed on Samsung’s next-gen flagship, something that should create more room for a battery. In addition to this, switching out the horizontal camera setup for a vertical one positioned in the corner should allow for a taller battery and therefore a higher capacity.
Lots and lots of internal storage
Moving on to something that does seem more plausible, it’s reported that the regular Galaxy Note 10 will launch with 128GB of expandable internal storage. The Pro model, on the other hand, will apparently increase this to an impressive 256GB. Also, if this isn’t enough, storage configurations for the larger device will reportedly max out at a whopping 1TB.
