Samsung has reportedly unveiled a potentially fatal flaw of its Galaxy Note 10.
Forbes notes that Samsung specialist site GalaxyClub has spotted a submission by Samsung to South Korea’s official testing institute, the KTR for certification involving a new Galaxy Note 10 battery. This is also much smaller than expected.
The rated battery capacity is of 4170 mAh
Forbes also writes that the rated capacity is of just 4170 mAh which means that it’s just 170 mAh larger than the battery in the Galaxy Note 9.
This is reportedly the battery for the 5G version.
“How can we tie the KTR-submitted battery to the Galaxy Note 10 5G?” Forbes wonders.
According to the reports coming from the online publication, “it has the product number EB-BN972ABU, and Samsung batteries carry the product code of their intended smartphone within them after ‘B’ for the battery.”
The Galaxy Note 10 range begins at N970, but we already know that this is reserved for the 4G version.
In other words, with BN972, we’re looking at either the Exynos or Snapdragon 5G edition, as noted by Forbes.
The Galaxy S10 line-up
They also say that the implications for the wider Galaxy Note 10 range are really worrisome especially when you’re looking at the Galaxy S10 line-up. Why? Well, because the 4G Galaxy S10 Plus comes with a 4100 mAh battery which means that it’s smaller than the Galaxy S10 5G by 400 mAh.
A similar drop would be pushing the standard edition of the Galaxy Note 10 down to 3800 mAh which is 200 mAh smaller than the Note 9.
While all this new info involving the battery is pretty concerning, there’s also some good news, Forbes points out before ending their article.
The new design of the Galaxy Note 10 is excellent, the device comes with an updated quad camera, next-gen RAM, and enhanced storage.
These are only a few of the great features of the device. Maybe here’s the reason for which Samsung believes that the Galaxy Note 10 would need highly fast charging.
