Fresh Samsung Galaxy Note 10 leaks: 4500 mAh battery, 25 W fast charging, model numbers deciphered
A photograph of a battery on a South Korean website has led to speculation that at least one of the four Samsung Galaxy Note 10 phablet models will have a 4500 mAh battery, which is a nice little bump up from the Galaxy Note 9 that offered 4000 mAh. It would also be larger than the 4100 mAh battery sported by the Galaxy S10+ smartphone.
The battery is clearly labeled as a Samsung product and with a bit of zooming it’s possible to make out the capacity. The model name for the battery is “EB-BN975ABU;” as one of the Galaxy Note 10 phablets has the model number SM-N975 it becomes clear how the two have been linked. In this case, the SM-N975 is expected to be the non-5G Pro variant.
The model numbers seem to correspond with the phablets as follows: SM-N970 – regular/4G; SM-N971 –regular/5G; SM-N975 – Pro/4G; SM-N976 – Pro/5G. It’s possible the “regular” device may end up being called the Samsung Galaxy Note 10e. Tipster Ice universe has also associated the SM-N975 model with 25 W charging capability. This would be another good upgrade over the predecessor, which supported 15 W fast charging.
