The Samsung Galaxy Note 10 and Note 10 Pro will seemingly have the same battery capacity, at least if the latest set of leaks are to be believed. Previous rumours may have got the number of Note 10 models being released wrong too.

As August 10 nears, the date when Samsung is expected to announce its Galaxy Note 10 series, details about its upcoming phablets has started to crystalize. Over the last few weeks the internet has been awash with concept renders of what could end up being the Note 10, Note 10e or Note 10 Pro. Considering that Samsung has released a 5G version of the Galaxy S10, it should come as no surprise that there has been talk about a 5G version of the Note 10 too.

Sources apparently privy to confidential Samsung information are now claiming that the South Korean manufacturer has separated the development of the Note 10 series into three distinct projects, of which there are four devices. None of these may be the Note 10 5G too.

SM-N970 and SM-N971, the former of which is currently thought as being the Note 10e, are grouped under Project D1, with the "D" referring to da Vinci. Da Vinci is reportedly the codename for the Note 10 series. There is also Project D2 and D2-X, which cover the SM-N975 and SM-N976 respectively. According to @ishanagarwal24, the SM-N975 will have a 6.4-inch display, while the SM-N976 will have a 6.8-inch panel. The former will also come with a minimum of 128 GB of storage, with Samsung equipping the latter with between 256 GB and 1 TB of storage. Agarwal reports that both Project D2 devices will come with 4,170 mAh batteries, which is significantly smaller than previous leaks have suggested.

In short, Samsung seemingly could launch four Note 10 models plus a 5G model. Considering that the company has only released one Note device per generation save for the combustible Note 7, we think it is unlikely that it will switch to releasing five Note smartphones this year. Instead, we would still tentatively put money on Samsung releasing a more affordable and smaller Note 10 along with a regular model and a Pro version.
