If you want a fabulous phablet with the option of a digital stylus then Samsung’s Galaxy Note 9 is very hard to beat.
This accomplished phone is one of the best on the market right now with it offering a stunning 6.4-inch screen, big battery and dual-lens rear camera.
The S Pen which tucks inside the phone has also been updated with owners now able to perform useful functions such as controlling music playback and the phone’s camera shutter.
A recent price cut to this device has added to the appeal and it’s really hard phone not to recommend.
However, if recent leaks are true it may be about to be upstaged by an even better device.
Samsung usually reveals its new Note series in the summer and with that time of the year closing in fast it seems a Note 10 is fully in development.
Rumours suggest that this refreshed phone is going to get some impressive upgrades which could include the ability to recharge it at super fast speeds.
In fact, two separate reports are stating that the Note 10 will get fast charging that could exceed 25W.
Tech tipster Ice Universe and Forbes have both said that this very quick way of refilling the battery is coming to the S10 with some even speculating that 50W speeds may be on their way.
Along with getting a much faster charge another big new feature arriving on the new Note 10 could be an upgrade to the rear camera.
Samsung has just unveiled its new 64-megapixel ISOCELL Bright GW1 image sensor and it looks almost certain it will be included on the new flagship.
Samsung says its new image sensor features the highest resolution in its 0.8μm-pixel image sensor lineup.
With pixel-merging Tetracell technology it can produce bright images in low-light environments and highly-detailed shots in brighter settings.
The Korean firm is even boasting that it can take pictures resembling the way the human eye perceives its surroundings with it supporting real-time high dynamic range (HDR) of up to 100-decibels – in comparison, the dynamic range of a conventional image sensor is at around 60dB, while that of the human eye is typically considered to be around 120dB.
“Over the past few years, mobile phone cameras have become the main instrument for recording and sharing our everyday moments,” said Yongin Park, executive vice president of sensor business at Samsung Electronics.
“With more pixels and advanced pixel technologies, Samsung ISOCELL Bright GW1 and GM2 will bring a new level of photography to today’s sleekest mobile devices that will enhance and help change the way we record our daily lives.”
So the Note 10 could have a better camera and offer faster charging but there’s one final bonus that may arrive on this device.
It would seem almost certain that Samsung will launch a 5G version of its Note 10 making this one of the fastest phones on the market.
5G is set to launch across the UK in the coming months with it offering download speeds in excess of 100Mps.
Not only will 5G be faster but also much more reliable with more people able to access the fast speeds at the same time.
So, the Note 10 looks like it could be a phone to watch out for and expect more news about this device in the coming months.
