A new report claims that the upcoming Samsung Galaxy Note 10 will feature an FHD+ display and a battery capacity of 3,500 mAh. Also touted are some improvements to the S Pen along with a possible implementation of some form of LG's zoom audio feature. The larger Note 10+ will feature a QHD+ panel and a 4,300 mAh battery.

The much awaited Samsung Galaxy Note 10 launch is not too far away, which means we can expect quite a few leaks in the run up to the event. While we know a fair bit about what to expect from the upcoming Note 10 series, a new leak offers some insights about the display, battery capacity, and S Pen improvements coming to the Note 10. This information comes from a Greek tech site name Techmaniacs. We cannot 100% vouch for this, but there's not much to indicate it could be wrong either so take this for what it's worth.

According to the source, the Galaxy Note 10 weighs 168g and will offer just an FHD+ resolution display at 6.3-inches and will be powered by a 3,500 mAH battery. The reduced resolution should do its part in helping with battery life like what we observed with the Galaxy S10e. The removal of the 3.5mm headphone jack could have contributed in offering a enough space to accommodate the slightly larger battery.

The larger 6.8-inch Note 10 Plus will offer a QHD+ resolution display and will sport a 4,300 mAh battery. This model weighs 198g and is said to feature a ToF sensor alongside the triple-camera setup. The Galaxy Note 10+ is expected to offer 12 GB of RAM and 256 GB of internal storage. 

Both the devices will offer front-facing cameras with a dedicated Night Mode and Live Focus for video. The Note 10 will support 25W fast charging while the Note 10+ will be able to support up to 45W. However, the in-box charger will supply only 25W so if you really need high-power charging, you'll need to cough up extra dough for it.

The S Pen is also reportedly getting a few improvements such being able to hover and flip through images in the Gallery. It is being said that the S Pen will make a marker-like sound while note taking for added realism. 

A form of LG's zoom audio feature is also expected to make it to the Note 10 series that allows the phone to focus on a defined area in the scene and record audio only from that area while reducing background noise. Also, Samsung could very well ditch the dedicated Bixby button and integrate it into the power switch.

I am a cell and molecular biologist and computers have been an integral part of my life ever since I laid my hands on my first PC which was based on an Intel Celeron 266 MHz processor, 16 MB RAM and a modest 2 GB hard disk. Since then, I’ve seen my passion for technology evolve with the times. From traditional floppy based storage and running DOS commands for every other task, to the connected cloud and shared social experiences we take for granted today, I consider myself fortunate to have witnessed a sea change in the technology landscape. I honestly feel that the best is yet to come, when things like AI and cloud computing mature further. When I am not out finding the next big cure for cancer, I read and write about a lot of technology related stuff or go about ripping and re-assembling PCs and laptops.
