Just as fans were celebrating the fact that Samsung seemed to be heading toward offering at least one variant of the upcoming Galaxy Note 10 series 25 W fast charge support, it now appears that feature could be off the table. The same tech insider that suggested the flagship phablet could come with 25 W fast charge has poured cold water on the idea. However, Ice universe’s tweet that plugged this leak still offered some crumbs for expectant fans:
The 25w high probability is the wrong message, I take it back, but I can't say more, I can only say that your expectations are worthwhile.
So what are the “expectations” hinted at here? There has been some rather optimistic speculation in return: 5000 mAh battery, Exynos 9825 SoC, graphene battery. Some even think the leaker is engaging in Xiaomi-like misdirection and that 25 W is actually too low, with 35 W and 50 W fast charging mentioned by commentators. Perhaps it’s something to do with the Samsung Galaxy Note 10’s cameras, which might even include a pop-up selfie camera.
A Samsung Galaxy Note with a pop-up camera sounds somewhat incongruous – a snazzy and fun mechanism installed in a serious and design-conscious phablet. But there’s no doubt Samsung could integrate a pop-up system that would fit perfectly with the Note 10; if concept designers can offer some good pop-up camera ideas for the Galaxy Note 10 and post them on YouTube then the experts shouldn’t have a problem either. Plus, a pop-up camera would adhere to Ice universe’s recent tweet about the phablet enjoying Vitruvian Man-like symmetry...or maybe the S-Pen will end up being used as the pop-up camera instead.
