Shafted: The Samsung Galaxy Note 10 could feature an underwhelming FHD+ display
The Samsung Galaxy Note 10 phones are scheduled for an August 7 launch. The South Korean OEM will launch two devices: a regular Note 10 and a more expensive Note 10+. We've been rather leery about the regular Note 10 and more details of the upcoming flagship have now surfaced.
According to a new leak, the Note 10 will feature a FHD+ display. The Note 10+ will, of course, sport a QHD+ display. We're not sure about the veracity of the source leak at all, as the idea of Samsung opting for a FHD+ display on its top-of-the-line device is almost comical.
We've been rather critical of Samsung's take on the Note 10 phones, and a move like this would further cement our opinion on the matter. For some perspective, Samsung has used QHD on its Galaxy Notes as far back as the Note 4 that was released in 2014. Having a Galaxy Note with a FHD+ display would be as out of left-field as it gets, especially since the Note 10 is expected to sport a big 6.3-inch display.
Again, we must reiterate our skepticism on the authenticity of this leak. If it turns out to be accurate, though, it'd be more fitting to name the device in question a "Note 10e", as it would be no true Samsung Galaxy Note flagship.
