Samsung’s strongly anticipated Galaxy Note 10 smartphone has just been leaked online. And when we say leaked, we mean LEAKED. We’re talking specs, photos and a cavalcade of exposed secrets – including the surprise continuation of a hardware feature we all thought was getting the chop. Here are the specifications and images.

We’re currently at the Eleventh Hour before the Galaxy Note 10 is officially launched by Samsung. If you can’t bear to wait that long, Twitter leaker (and presumed Samsung blacklister) Ishan Agarwa has divulged pretty much everything you need to know about the phone in a series of devastating tweets:

As expected, the base Note 10 model will come with 8GB RAM and 256GB storage. There will also be a larger Note 10+ which comes with 12GB RAM, 256GB minimum storage… and both will come with 5G. This is a big deal, as it was previously assumed the 5G model would be a deluxe iteration of the phone, likely to be released a few months down the track. If Agarwa is correct, this means we will be getting four Note 10 models at launch: the Note10, Note10 5G, Note10+ and Note10+ 5G.

As Agarwa notes, this means Samsung will soon have eight flagship Galaxy smartphones on the market – the S10e, S10, S10+, S10 5G, Note10, Note10 5G, Note10+ and Note10+ 5G. That’s… a lot of phones to choose from.

In another tweet, Agarwa claimed that the Note 10 will come with an SD card. This is surprising, as previous leaks have claimed the exact opposite. According to Agarwa, this means you could have up to 2TB of onboard memory (take that, Apple.)

Unfortunately, this surprise hardware reprieve does not appear to extend to the 3.5mm headphone jack – if it did, Agarwa would have been sure to mention it. Other tidbits include support for Super Fast Wireless/Wired Charging, an IP68 Water Resistant Rating and an ‘Audio Zoom’ video recording tool. The 10+ apparently won’t come with a 90hz display, however.

In an earlier tweet, Agarwa also revealed the European pricing which gives an indication of how much the devices will cost in Australia:

This translates to approximately $1600 and $1840 in Australian dollars – although you can expect GST and the dreaded “Australia tax” on top of that. In reality, the prices will be closer to $2000.

The Galaxy Unpacked event takes place on Thursday, August 8 at 6am AEST. (Find out how to watch the event live here.) In the meantime, you can read up on the most important features below.
