Leaked Samsung Galaxy Note 10 marketing materials show two phone sizes

Samsung is expected to finally unveil the Galaxy Note 10 at Samsung Unpacked on Wednesday, August 7, but the leaks are still flowing. The latest comes in the form of marketing materials for the Galaxy Note 10, and confirm that we’ll see two sizes for the phone, expected to be called the Galaxy Note 10 and Galaxy Note 10+.

The leak comes from Droid Life, and gives us a number of details of the two phones. According to the leaks, the smaller Galaxy Note 10 will feature a 6.3-inch display, while the larger device will step things up to 6.8 inches. Both offer a hole-punch camera cutout, and will come with an S Pen included. Notably, Samsung seems to be adding new features to the S Pen, like new air gestures and the ability to remotely switch between camera lenses, which is a handy feature.

The materials also offer details about other features. For example, the materials note that the phones will feature a new “Audio Zoom” microphone, which focuses audio recording to where you’re recording in a video. It seems similar to a feature on offer by the LG V30, but may be a little more refined. Last but not least is a new Superfast Charge, which gives you “hours of juice from minutes of charge time.”

Other specs aren’t noted, but previous leaks have given us a pretty good idea of what to expect. The phones, according to leaks, will offer the Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 processor and a hefty 8GB of RAM, which is pretty impressive. In classic Note fashion, there should be plenty of storage on offer too — according to leaks the phones will offer as much as 256GB of storage, which should be plenty for most, especially in an era of streaming and cloud storage.

According to some leaks, there will be other unique features too. Leaker Ice Universe has tweeted that the phone will have a variable aperture that can switch between three different apertures — between f/1.5 and f/2.4. That’s pretty impressive, and should make for a much more versatile camera experience on the Galaxy Note 10. Not only that, but the two phones will reportedly have three main lenses, including a 12-megapixel wide-angle lens, a 16-megapixel ultra-wide-angle lens, and a 12-megapixel zoom lens.

Smartphones tend to improve yearly, but their usefulness decreases if they break because of a fall. To see which smartphones are better than others in this regard, we can turn to companies like Allstate Protection Plans, which regularly tests the durability of new mobile devices, so we don't have to.

The most recent Allstate Protection Plans drop tests have revealed concerning results for the newly released Samsung Galaxy S24, Galaxy S24 Plus, and Galaxy S24 Ultra smartphones. Spoiler: They don't perform as well as last year's models.

Don’t buy a Galaxy S24 Ultra or iPhone 15 Pro Max. Do this instead

“Do I need all that?” That’s the question on the mind of shoppers before they splurge a now-standard $1,000 asking price for a top-tier phone in 2024. Ideally, that dilemma should be there. The likes of Samsung Galaxy S24 Ultra and Apple’s iPhone 15 Pro Max have won laurels for a handful of standout features they offer. But you might not need those standout features at all.

I’ve been on that road, and more frequently than I have the temerity to admit. For some reason, regret comes as part of the $1,200 flagship parcel. That's unless your phone is a part of your creative or work process, or you just don’t care and only want the latest and greatest for the vanity of it. A segment like that certainly exists, but that affluent user base doesn’t dictate the journey of a product.

I’m a lifelong iPhone user. Here’s what I think about the Samsung Galaxy S24

Samsung and Apple typically release new smartphones at different times of the year. Samsung usually does it early in the year, while Apple waits until the fall ahead of the holiday shopping season. As always, Apple tends to release new iPhones that outdo the ones Samsung released earlier, and then when the calendar changes, Samsung comes back with something to better compete with Apple, and so forth.

Samsung has recently announced its Galaxy S24 series, which has sparked the curiosity of iPhone owners like myself. Many of us are currently exploring the features of these phones and seeing which ones aren't available on our iPhones, myself included. Some are entirely new, while others have been introduced on previous Samsung Galaxy S models. Although many seem promising, some may not be as appealing to iPhone users. Here are a few of the Galaxy S24 features I like — and a few I don't.
