Leaked promo image confirms Galaxy Note 10+ 5G Verizon exclusivity and killer pre-order deal
While we definitely seem to know everything there is to know about the two main variants of Samsung's "next big thing", a third model reportedly headed to the US as well hasn't been quite as present in the rumor mill over the past couple of months. We're talking about the Galaxy Note 10+ 5G, which is expected to be sold exclusively by Verizon in as many as three different storage configurations.

The absolute powerhouse is in the spotlight today, as legendary mobile tech leaker Evan Blass has been able to procure a promotional image confirming a number of important details ahead of an August 7 event where the entire Note 10 family is supposed to see daylight.

Initial Verizon exclusivity and a crazy pre-order deal

Much like the Galaxy S10 5G, it appears that the 5G-enabled Note 10 Plus will be available first at Verizon before other US carriers are eventually allowed to join the party. Of course, we don't know exactly how long it might take Samsung to expand this S Pen-wielding beast nationwide and whether or not it will ultimately hit all big four US wireless service providers.

The 5G-capable S10 made its Verizon debut a couple of months ago, spreading to AT&T's business channel after a few weeks, then Sprint, and finally, T-Mobile. We're guessing the Galaxy Note 10+ 5G will be following a similar schedule starting sometime next month, but obviously, we can't be 100 percent certain of that until the manufacturer and the nation's top mobile network operators go on the record with all the availability info.

In the meantime, we should be happy we get to check out today all that screen real estate of the jumbo-sized Note 10+ in crystal clear quality, along with a snazzy blue S Pen and the eye-catching backplate of a small Note 10 with a gradient finish. In case you're wondering why the front panel of the Note 10 Plus is paired with the rear cover of the Note 10 for this promotional pic, that's actually because Verizon apparently plans to throw in the latter with pre-orders of the former in a 5G-supporting variant. The deal is likely to come with the usual strings attached (monthly installments and a new line of service), but it still sounds pretty awesome.

What to expect in terms of specs, features, and pricing

While the Galaxy S10 5G is different from the S10 and S10+ in a number of key ways, the Galaxy Note 10+ 5G is rumored to largely mimic the spec sheet of the 4G-limited Note 10 Plus. According to the latest gossip, that's likely to include a massive 6.8-inch display (with a centered hole punch), a Snapdragon 855 Plus processor, 4,300mAh battery capacity, microSD support, a state-of-the-art quartet of rear cameras with the same main triple setup as the Note 10 and an additional Time-of-Flight sensor, and possibly, up to a whopping 12GB RAM coupled with between 256 gigs and a full terabyte of internal storage space.

That's incredibly impressive but also fairly similar to what the 5G-enabled Galaxy S10 has going for it, so we don't reckon any big price hikes are in the pipeline. Our guesstimate is that the Galaxy Note 10+ 5G will start at around $1,400 outright, which sounds like a lot but if you hurry and take advantage of the aforementioned introductory special offer, it's actually not that bad.

By the way, it's worth highlighting that the Note 10 Plus 5G will come powered by a slightly faster SoC than the S10 5G, but a separate modem will still be needed to tap into the next-gen cellular standard. So, yeah, the two beasts will be very, very similar, at least as far as their internals are concerned.

Rear panel looks better than note 9. Front looks worse than note 9.

So, $1400 for two. I'll definitely get two and port over to T-Mobile

the outright price starts at $1400, that's just for one and when Verizon says free, it means you pay the first 2 months and the rest is paid through bill credit. That also means that 2nd one has to be on Verizon for the full 24 months unless you want to lose those bill credits and pay it yourself

What happened with Samsung? Rear ugly design same as huawei p30? Why not same as S10+ 5G but with Note's Design Features? Front with not double selfie camera? Why this design was confirmed? Size 6,8" is only good in this. Who trying to destroy Samsung's best baby? Sad. Sad. Sad.
