Even though the Galaxy Note 10 Plus would be shipped with a 25W charger, users can buy the 45W charger for faster battery charging by paying an additional cost. The Galaxy Note 10, according to Ice Universe, would only support 25W charging.

Samsung Galaxy Note 10: Exynos and not Snapdragon processor in the US?

Samsung typically launches its flagships with the Qualcomm processor in the US and with its own Exynos chipset in the rest of the markets. However, Blass claims that the company might adopt a different strategy in the US and launch the Galaxy Note 10 series with Exynos 9825. The Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 processor will reportedly be limited to the Verizon model of the Note10.

Blass wrote in his tweet, In the US, only Verizon Note10 models will be Qualcomm-powered, and they will be regular Snapdragon 855, NOT SD855+. The other carriers, like the rest of the world, will have Exynos 9825 versions, I’m told.

Tipster Evan Blass recently put out a promotional image of US carrier Verizon, which showcases the Galaxy Note 10+ along with a blue S Pen. The image suggests that Galaxy Note 10+ 5G variant will be available for pre-order with Verizon, which is already conducting trials for 5G network in parts of the US.

Further, those who pre-order the phone will get a Note 10 free, which makes for a lucrative offer given the standard Samsung Galaxy S10 is expected to start at a price of around $1000, while the Galaxy S10+ 5G could cost $1300 approximately.
