The Samsung Galaxy Note 9 has only been out for a few months – and already leaked details about its replacement have emerged. Apparently, the Note 10 will boast a supersized 6.66-inch display, making it one of the biggest smartphones in existence. Here are the details.
According to an iGeekphone report based on quotes in the Korean media, the Samsung Galaxy Note 10 is set to come with a truly gargantuan 6.66-inch display. This is larger than both the Galaxy Note 9 (6.4 inches) and iPhone XS Max (6.5 inches.)
The phone is expected to be powered by a next-generation Qualcomm Snapdragon 8150 CPU and will likely share many of the same specifications as the yet-to-be-released Samsung Galaxy S10. It may also include support for 5G, although it’s unlikely this feature will be compatible with Australian networks at launch.
The Note’s signature S-Pen stylus should also receive another overhaul to build on the Bluetooth functionality added to the Note 9. With Samsung making a big push into mobile video games, we wouldn’t be surprised if the next S-Pen had some gamer-friendly tricks up its sleeve.
If Samsung follows its established release pattern, the Note 10 will likely hit stores sometime in August. With that said, the company is also releasing its folding phone/tablet hybrid next year which may impact the release schedule for other phones.
What do you guys think? Is 6.6 inches too big? Is this the tipping point that sees us all move towards folding phones? Or will it trigger a renaissance in sensibly sized handsets? (It wouldn’t be the first time the industry has gone backwards in size – anyone remember the tiny flagships during the switch from analogue to digital?)
