Samsung accidentally reveals some news about the Galaxy Note 10 line's charging capabilities
Back in February, just prior to the unveiling of the Samsung Galaxy S10 series, we told you about a place in New York City that would allow consumers to handle the new phones minutes after they were unwrapped. Called Samsung 837 (the reason why will be made clear very soon, so hold on), this is a building located in the heart of the city's meatpacking district. There, amid the hip stores and trendy eateries is Samsung 837. Samsung calls the location its "cultural destination, digital playground and Marketing Center of Excellence."
Located at 837 Washington Street in the Big Apple, Samsung will be holding its next Galaxy First Look event on Saturday, August 10th at 1:45 pm. You can visit the website to "RSVP" if you want to have a hands-on experience with the Note 10 models only three days after they are introduced at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn. As pointed out by XDA, the listing states that the event will allow consumers to "...get hands-on with all the highly-anticipated new features. These include Intelligent Battery, Superfast Charge, Wireless PowerShare, the next-generation S Pen, and so much more." So Samsung has accidentally leaked the news that its "Superfast Charge" feature will be found on the Galaxy Note 10 line.
Samsung accidentally confirms some of the features to be found on the Galaxy Note 10 line
"Superfast Charge" is the name used by Samsung for the 25W wired charging support available now on the Galaxy S10 5G and the mid-range Galaxy A80. The inadvertent inclusion of this feature in the details of the next Galaxy First Look event indicates that the Galaxy Note 10 and Galaxy Note 10+ will support 25W wired charging at the very minimum. Last month, tipster Ice Universe stated that the Galaxy Note 10+ will support 45W wired charging although the adapter in the box will only charge at 25W. If this is true, Samsung will no doubt be selling 45W charging bricks as an accessory.
Samsung accidentally spills the beans on the Galaxy Note 10 line's charging capabilities
Wireless PowerShare is the reverse wireless charging feature that is found on the Galaxy S10 line. It allows users to place a pair of Galaxy Buds or a compatible device on the back of their phone and share some of their handset's battery life with that device. The Huawei Mate 20 Pro was the first to offer reverse wireless charging and we could see this offered on the 2019 Apple iPhone models to be unveiled next month. The Intelligent Battery feature optimizes the phone's battery depending on which apps are open, and the user's location.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 10 is expected to be equipped with a 6.3-inch display carrying a resolution of 1080 x 2280 for a 19:9 aspect ratio. In the states, the Snapdragon 855 (+) Mobile Platform will be under the hood with the Exynos 9825 SoC employed elsewhere. The basic model will feature 8GB of memory and 256GB of storage and the handset carries a triple camera setup (12MP primary + 12MP telephoto with 2x optical zoom + 16MP wide-angle). Keeping the lights on is a 3500mAh battery.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 10+ will have a 6.8-inch display with a 1440 x 3040 resolution for an aspect ratio of 19:9. The same chipset found on the smaller model powers the device, and the basic unit will sport 12GB of memory with 256GB of storage. The phone will be equipped with the same three camera sensors on the back of the Galaxy Note 10 but adds a Time of Flight (ToF) sensor. This measures the time it takes for infrared beams to bounce off a subject and return to the phone. The data is then used to create 3D maps for facial recognition or to more accurately measure the depth to improve the bokeh effect found on portraits. This model will feature a 4300mAh battery. Samsung was apparently hoping to include a larger capacity battery and different cameras on the Note 10, but the room required for the S Pen housing prevented this from happening.
