Samsung Galaxy Note 10 (SM-N970) Hands-On Preview!

Samsung Galaxy Note 10 - Other Key Features!

Samsung Galaxy Note 10 Dual SIM Tray

Disappointingly, the Samsung Galaxy Note10 will NOT come with a hybrid SIM tray. Instead, it will have a dual SIM tray.

This means you are limited to the 256 GB internal storage.

While that is more than enough for most users, we personally prefer to use a microSD card to store our media.

In case anything happens to the phone, we can still retrieve the media stored on the microSD card.

If you want the ability to add a microSD card, you will need to opt for the Note10+, which comes with the hybrid SIM slot.

 

Samsung Galaxy Note 10 Battery + Charging

The Samsung Galaxy Note10 comes with a 3,500 mAh battery, and supports 45W fast charging and 12W fast wireless charging.

However, it will not come with the new 45W Samsung EP-TA845 fast charger, only a 25W fast charger.

Time To Hit The Road, Jack…

Even as Xiaomi resurrects the 3.5 mm audio port in the new Mi A3 smartphone, Samsung removed the  headphone jack in the Note10 series.

Unfortunately, the dongle is NOT free. Samsung is going to sell it for US$10 / ~£8.30 / A$20 / ~RM 42  each.

There is some good news though – the box includes a pair of USB Type C AKG earphones. At the very least, you can listen to music right out of the box!

 

Fingerprint Scanner, Iris Scanner?

The Samsung Galaxy Note10 comes with an in-display ultrasonic fingerprint scanner like their Galaxy S10+, Galaxy S10 and Galaxy S10e brethren.

It loses the iris scanner from the Galaxy Note9, but retains Face Recognition.

IP68 Water-Resistance

It was rumoured that the Note10 will boast improved IP69 water-resistance. This would mean it would be able to withstand high-pressure water (80-100 bar) for at least 3 minutes at a distance of 10 to 15 cm.

Unfortunately, Samsung stuck with IP68, which is good enough for short immersions in water up to 1.5 m in depth, but not enough to withstand pressurised or forceful sprays of water.
