And the reason makes complete sense.
Ok, let’s get this out of the way. The Samsung Galaxy Note 10 hasn’t been made official and every bit of information in this post is centred around pure speculation. Till Samsung officially unveils the Galaxy Note 10 and its higher-end sibling, the Galaxy Note 10+; then only we can make a fair assessment of some of the features or lack of it has to offer.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 10 is a deeply polarizing phone, at least this judgment is based on leaks and rumours. The design looks brilliant and it will come with enough technology to keep it relevant for the next few years. However, it appears that some shortcuts have been taken in order to achieve this future-proof handset. And now, finally, we get to know the reason behind one shocking omission.
As per a recent leak by the FCC, we get to know that Samsung won’t be including the 3.5mm headphone jack in its upcoming Galaxy Note 10. This was rather baffling especially since the flagship Galaxy S10 devices came bearing it. The Galaxy Note series is known as a have-all, do-it-all smartphone so excluding the headphone jack definitely does raise a few eyebrows. Now, we get to know that Samsung has removed the headphone jack to add a larger battery in the device.
As per a report by TechManiacs, by losing the headphone jack, Samsung has managed to raise the battery capacity of Galaxy Note 10’s from 3500mAh to 3600mAh which means it’s a 2.85 per cent bump. In the grand scheme of things, the 3600mAh battery doesn’t seem to be as big of a draw as the 4000mAh battery on the Note9; however, with One UI’s optimizations, it will be able to achieve as much as an all-day battery life which is pretty impressive given the amount of high-end hardware here.
For those of you who are opting for the higher-end Samsung Galaxy Note 10+, you will be getting a massive 4300mAh battery and a microSD card slot, a feature that won’t be found on the Galaxy Note 10. With that being said, there still won’t be a headphone jack here but, you can expect it to come with some extremely fast battery charging technology that will be unrivalled.
