It looks like Samsung will be adopting Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 855+ SoC for its upcoming Galaxy Note 10 flagship series. At least, that’s what serial leakster Evan Blass (@evleaks) tweeted recently.
According to Blass’ latest leak, both the Galaxy Note 10 and Note 10+ will be powered by the new Snapdragon 855+ SoC, while the non-US variants of the phone will still run on Samsung’s homemade Exynos 9825, which is also based on a similar 7nm die lithography.
Blass’ tweet also lists down additional hardware specifications for both devices. According to him, the displays on both models will seemingly have a standard 60Hz refresh rate. In terms of size, the Galaxy Note 10 will have a 6.3-inch AMOLED Infinity display, while its plus-sized brother will be slightly larger at 6.8-inches. It seems the Note 10 will also come with 8GB RAM and 256GB of expandable storage, though Blass doesn’t say if this is the only variation Samsung will be releasing for the phone.
Batter capacity also varies with the two. For the Galaxy Note 10, we’re reportedly looking at a 3600mAh non-removable battery. While the Galaxy Note 10+ gets a much larger 4300mAh. However, Blass says that both phones will feature 45W charging and 15W charge share. The S-Pen seems to have been updated too, with Blass and another leakster, Steve H.McFly (@OnLeaks), saying that the tool will come with some form of air gesture recognition.
There’s also information regarding the main triple-camera system of the Galaxy Note 10+ by way of H.McFly. According to him and his sources, the phone will be using a 12MP wide camera, a 16MP ultra-wide lens, and a 12MP Zoom that we’re guessing maybe of a telephotographic nature.
According to my sources:#GalaxyNote10Plus = 6.8-inch Infinity-O AMOLED, SD855+ or Exynos9825 (7nm), 8GB RAM + 256GB ROM, 12MP Wide + 16MP Ultra Wide + 12MP Zoom + DepthVison ToF, 4300mAh with 45W charging + 15W PowerShare + 25W charger, UFS3.0, S-Pen with "Air Actions" gestures.

As usual, these are just rumours, and with Samsung’s Unpacked event just around the corner, it’s safe to say that we’ll be getting our answers on the matter soon. Until then, we do ask that you take this bit of news with a pinch of salt.
