Forget the Galaxy Note 10: Samsung is making a more affordable 5G phone

Forget the Galaxy Note 10: Samsung is making a more affordable 5G phone The Galaxy Note 10 is launching soon, complete with a brand new design and a few novel features, but this Samsung flagship will be at least as expensive as the Galaxy S10 series that launched earlier this year. And if you’re gunning for a 5G version of the Note 10, then you’ll have to pay even more. But Samsung is also doing something it hasn’t done before; it’s working on a brand new flagship device that won’t be as expensive as the S10 or Note 10. Moreover, this rumored Galaxy A90 phone will deliver 5G connectivity as well as 45W charging speeds — something that hasn’t been available on any Samsung flagship to date.

Real-life Galaxy Note 10 tests have already shown that the phone’s 25W battery charging tech is faster than 30W chargers from competitors. What that means is that you only need just over an hour to recharge the massive battery of the Note 10+ model from empty to 100%. Swap that 25W charger for a 45W one, and charging times will be further reduced. But Samsung has been working on a battery charging breakthrough for several years, and we might finally see it deployed in commercial handsets as soon as next year. If that were to happen, the Galaxy S11 or Note 11 might be able to fully recharge a battery in mere minutes or even seconds.

Samsung is making a phone that could last for days on a single charge

Samsung is making a phone that could last for days on a single charge Last year, Samsung announced a shift in policy when it comes to its smartphone business. The best phones Samsung makes, including the Galaxy S and Galaxy Note, won’t be the devices to introduce new hardware innovations. Instead, the company will use mid-range phones to showcase new technologies and then bring them to flagship phones. We saw it happen with triple- and quad-lens cameras last fall, as well as the first Infinity-O display. These features started on mid-range handsets before eventually making it to the Galaxy S10 and Note 10.

Rumors earlier this year claimed the Galaxy S10 would feature a battery that no other Android device or iPhone used so far. Ultimately, the phone shipped without that graphene battery, and the Note 10 doesn’t have one either. At the time, we reminded you of earlier reports that said Samsung has been developing graphene batteries for a while now — here’s what a blog said back in November 2017:

Developed at Samsung Advanced Institute of Technology (SAIT), researchers have found a way to fully charge a battery in 12 minutes using the graphene ball technology. Currently, batteries with fast charging support still take about an hour to fully charge. Moreover, the researchers claim the battery temperature can be maintained to up to 60C, a temperature standard maintained by EV batteries.

Mate 30 Pro’s wireless charging might be just as fast as the Galaxy Note 10’s wired charging

Mate 30 Pro’s wireless charging might be just as fast as the Galaxy Note 10’s wired charging Now that the Galaxy Note 10 series is official, we've learned that the Galaxy Note 10+ needs only 65 minutes to recharge with the help of the default 25W charger. Real-life tests showed Samsung's charger is faster than the 30W charger that comes with the OnePlus 7 Pro. But a brand new rumor says Huawei's upcoming flagship will support 25W wireless charging speeds, which would be the fastest wireless charging speed in the industry. Rumored to

For years, graphene has been described as this super material that can fix a bunch of issues. Among them, we have battery charging speeds as well as energy storage. However, we have yet to see any of these technologies deployed in smartphones. If Samsung were to complete the research by next year though, it’s likely graphene batteries would debut inside flagship devices at first.

This brings us to Evan Blass’s tweet about the phone’s battery:

Lithium-ion batteries are…suboptimal. Samsung is hoping to have at least one handset either next year or in 2021, I’m told, which will feature a graphene battery instead. Capable of a full charge in under a half-hour, they still need to raise capacities while lowering costs.

Blass has been a steady source of leaks for years, but there’s no guarantee the S11 or Note 11 will feature graphene batteries. Given the Note 7’s battery problems, Samsung is undoubtedly paying particular attention to the safety side of things and won’t make graphene batteries available until they’re ready.

Samsung 45-watt USB-C fast charger review

Samsung 45-watt USB-C fast charger review Samsung's Galaxy Note 10 and 10+ will arrive on August 23, but the tech giant has already unveiled several new accessories. One of them is a 45-watt USB-C fast charger, which allows you to charge the Note 10 up to 25 watts and the Note 10+ up to 45 watts. © Jacob Krol/CNNIt's available from Samsung directly for $49.99 in either black or white. There is a Samsung-made USB-C cable in the box as well. Technically, it meets Samsung's Super Fast Charging standard and uses a Power Delivery or PD standard.

For the time being, the Galaxy Note 10 phones bundled with 25W chargers are available for preorder right now. The 45W charger, meanwhile, will be available as a separate purchase.

Samsung rumored to be readying cheaper versions of the Galaxy S10 and Note 10 .
Samsung has already launched five distinct flagship smartphone models in 2019 between the Galaxy S10 and Galaxy Note 10 lines, but if a recent string of rumors is to be believed, the company isn't done yet. SamMobile first reported a few weeks ago that Samsung is working on a new device with model number SM-N770F, which it suspects is an even more affordable version of the Galaxy Note 10. It then doubled down on this claim on Friday morning, revealing that sources have suggested the phone will be called the Galaxy Note 10 Lite.
