Samsung Galaxy Note 10 whispers: No 25 W fast charging after all but maybe a pop-up camera to make up for it
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.
