Samsung's Galaxy Note 10 Unpacked event is around three weeks away and as is traditional, it has made its way to the FCC for certification ahead of its launch. Although visit didn't reveal the juicy details like whether the Note 10 (SM-N970F/DS) runs the Snapdragon 855 (likely) or the new Snapdragon 855+ (less likely), it did confirm the dimensions of the smaller of what is expected to be at least two model sizes. The device is 150.9 mm in length, and 71.8 mm wide while the overall diagonal measures 159.4 mm. The display measures in at 158.2 mm (6.22-inches).

This compares with last year's Galaxy Note 9, which measures slightly larger at 161.9 mm in length and 76.4 mm in width with a display that measures 103.2 mm (6.4-inches). The rumored display size for the Galaxy Note 10+ is larger at 6.75-inches giving customers this year a choice between a slightly more compact device or a slightly larger device -- either way, both are stunning. FCC data also confirms that the smaller Galaxy Note 10 will pack a 3,400 mAh battery which compares with the 4,000 mAh batter in the Note 9 - given the efficiency gains of the Snapdragon 855 over the 845 along with the smaller display should mean battery life will be comparable.

Of course, if you're looking for a bigger battery you will need to go for the larger Galaxy Note 10+, which is rumored to fit in a 4,170 mAh battery but with its larger display will probably still manage to just edge out the smaller device for overall battery life - but it might only be a marginal difference. If you're in the US or China and hoping for a new Snapdragon 855+ in your Galaxy Note 10 or 10+, we wouldn't be holding our breath. If that chipset does make it into a Note 10 model, it will be the Note 10 5G if at all. All will, however, be revealed in less than a month!

I have been writing about consumer technology over the past ten years, previously with the former MacNN and Electronista, and now Notebookcheck since 2017. My first computer was an Apple ][c and this sparked a passion for Apple, but also technology in general. In the past decade, I’ve become increasingly platform agnostic and love to get my hands on and explore as much technology as I can get my hand on. Whether it is Windows, Mac, iOS, Android, Linux, Nintendo, Xbox, or PlayStation, each has plenty to offer and has given me great joy exploring them all. I was drawn to writing about tech because I love learning about the latest devices and also sharing whatever insights my experience can bring to the site and its readership.
