There’s still another week or so until Samsung unveils the new Galaxy Note 10, but like every year, we pretty much know everything about it already. And because many people have likely already decided whether they want one, Samsung is offering trade-in deals if you reserve one before you officially see it.

That’s good, because the Note 10 is going to be superexpensive. The current Note 9 already starts at $1,000 and tops off at $1,250. All signs suggest the Note 10 will be even more loaded, with the launch of a second, higher-tiered model this year. So a high-end model that tops $1,500 isn’t out of the question. So, let’s take a look at what you’re going to get for all that money. 

Galaxy Note 10: Design

According to leaked renders of the Note 10, Samsung will be giving the Note 10 something of a unique look as compared to the S10, opting to center the hole for the camera rather than push it off the the right side. It also appears that all variations of the Note will have a single selfie cam rather than the dual setup on the S10+. Both versions of the Note will follow the same design, with the only difference being screen size.

The front of the device appears to be nearly all screen, with a sliver of bezel along the bottom and barely any at the top. Around the back, the Note 10 will dump the fingerprint sensor in favor of an in-display one, probably the same ultrasonic sensor that’s on the S10, and will move the camera array to the left corner, leaving a mostly unobstructed view of the glass back. The color scheme will likely mirror the S10’s, with various “prism” options.

But one thing it reportedly won’t have is a headphone jack. Samsung had previously resisted the urge to dump the legacy port, but the Note 10 may represent the end of an era. According to leaks, rumors, and case renders, you’ll either need a USB-C dongle or a pair of Bluetooth buds.

Galaxy Note 10: Specs

The Galaxy Note lineup will be nothing short of a monster, according to serial leakster Evan Blass’s breakdown:

Galaxy Note 10

  • Display: 6.3-inch AMOLED FHD
  • Processor: Snapdragon 855 Plus
  • RAM: 8GB
  • Storage: 256GB
  • Camera: Camera 1: 12MP telephoto Camera, f/2.2, + 12MP wide-angle, dual f/1.5-f/2.4+ 16MP ultra wide, f/2.2
  • Battery: 3,600mAh

Galaxy Note 10+

  • Display: 6.8-inch AMOLED QHD
  • Processor: Snapdragon 855 Plus
  • RAM: 8GB
  • Storage: 256GB
  • Camera: Camera 1: 12MP telephoto Camera, f/2.2, + 12MP wide-angle, dual f/1.5-f/2.4+ 16MP ultra wide, f/2.2 + time-of-flight
  • Battery: 4,300mAh

That would make the entry level Note 10 actually smaller than the current model, which has a 6.4-inch screen. A Full HD screen would also be a lower resolution than the current Quad HD screen, and the battery would be a downgrade as well, compared to the current 4,000mAh one. Another thing the Note 10 will reportedly be missing is an SD card expansion slot, which has been as staple on Samsung’s flagship phones for years.

THis is basically what you’d call a definitive leak of the Galaxy Note 10+.

Note users who want the best of the best will need to upgrade to the Note 10+. It will reportedly have a whopping 6.8-inch QHD display, which is even bigger than the Galaxy S10 5G’s massive 6.7-inch screen. To power all those pixels, Samsung will reportedly be using a 4,300mAh battery in the Note 10+ as well as 12GB of RAM. While it will likely have the same 256GB of base storage as the Note 10, it will include an SD expansion slot.
