According to rumors, Samsung’s upcoming flagship, the Galaxy Note 10, will come in two flavors this year – a smaller SM-N970 and larger SM-N975. Reports popped out today pointing that the smaller variant of Samsung’s king of phablets will sport a smaller battery with “just” 3,400mAh.
The discovery was made by the folks over at GalaxyClub.nl who discovered the information thanks to battery model which happens to correspond to the smaller variant of the Galaxy Note 10. This handset will be known as Galaxy Note 10e adoption the “e” suffix that was used for the lesser variant of the Galaxy S10 series.
Last month reports came indicating that the Note 10 Pro’s battery would come with 4,500mAh of juice. This represents a good upgrade over the 4,000mAh that are present in the last year’s Galaxy Note 9. Rumors also indicate that while the Galaxy Note 10 Pro will ship with a 6.75-inch AMOLED display, the Samsung Galaxy Note 10e should come with a 6.28-inch one.
The new “cheaper” variant of the Galaxy Note 10e comes to attract more customers over its flagship series, that couldn’t afford the price tag of the full-fledged variants. Despite the smaller battery capacity, that will certainly disappoint some potential customers, the company should offset this by equipping the smartphone with an FHD+ panel, that in theory, will consume less energy than a QHD+ display.
With the second half of 2019 set to start, we’re starting to see rumors about smartphones that usually come on this season. The Galaxy Note 10 already popped out in some renders, and apparently, the leaks about it won’t stop.
