    But no pen with those phones. I'm a pen guy. However, I'm wondering what the Note 10 brings that can lure me from the Note 9. Losing the SD Card and Headphone jack is not a deal breaker, but not exactly a lure either. Starting to feel like a phone that loses as much as it gains.
    OnePlus 7 Pro has been out since May and is on par with the Note's specs. The Asus ROG II looks legit too with Snapdragon 855+ and 120 fps screen. Plus OnePlus usually releases a T series with better specs each year. So a OP7TP may be on the horizon. This is the first time where a new Note may not be the best phone on the market. Sammy got some competition this year...

    All I am saying is this is the first time in a while that I am going to have to think about buying a Note phone. Usually, the Note is overpowered with all the bells and whistles. Not this year's Note though....

    So many good phones are coming out... I may hold off on getting the note 10.
    Unless you must have a sPen, then your options are pretty limited

    My option is very clear as I'm not really interested in any other phone without the pen, it's either stick with the Note 9 which has been and still is a solid phone for me, or the Note 10+ which may have the latest spec but are there enough features there to entice me with that huge price tag!

    I very nearly kept my Note 8 and held out for this Note 10 but caved in at the last minute and got the Note 9, so Samsung had better come up with some fantastic deal for me to part with it this time.

    As people have said, the Note has been the pinnacle of smartphones most years with the latest tech but this year it's more even with better competition and more phone manufacturers to compete with,
    come on Samsung you can do better!

    Same boat, except that I held onto the 8 and didn't give in to the note 9 temptation, the 10+ is really looking good to me now!

    I didn't cave to the Note 9. Figured I'd skip a generation, as I was perfectly happy with the N8. But in the face of the iNote changes, I bought a new N9 yesterday. SmartSwitch worked great from my N8 backup, and it's ready to go. I think I'll be hanging on to this one for a long time. The last of the Notes to have the headphone jack and expandable memory. Such a shame, as I was looking forward to the N10.

    "The last Note phone to have a headphone jack....."? Nothing is permanent concerning the presence or absence of such features in the smartphone market.

    I thought I heard that the 10+ would have the micro SD card slot too.... I know just rumors at this point, but we'll know soon enough

    10+ with an 855+ Snapdragon, microsd slot and 4300 mAh battery makes me a happy camper. Wish we were getting a 90 fps or better display. But still very happy with the recently leaked specs.

    I guess that's true. Have there been any examples of phones that deleted it that have subsequently put it back on a future generation?

    No SPen, though. I use it a lot, so a requirement for me.

    Yeah so leaked spec up to now (I'm concentrating on the Note 10 Pro/+ whatever)
    12GB Memory
    Micro SD card slot
    6.8" Amoled QHD display with center pin hole for front camera (new leak stating 2nd cam on front screen also)
    Rear Quad camera setup
    No 3.5mm heaphone jack
    256gb memory
    No Bixby button
    New Pen features (air touch)
    In screen FPS
    No Iris sensor
    No notification light
    IR blaster

    enough to warrant an upgrade over the 9?

    That's really up to the individual as to whether or not it's worthy or a warranted upgrade. If you enjoy the latest tech and money burns a hole in your pocket I say go for it but there's nothing ground breaking or earth shattering about these yearly upgrades.

    i am loving the new leaks and i hope they are true. with the +/Pro version having a micro SD card slot, that's all i really needed to hear.

    also very curious about the leak that there is indeed a second cam on the front. jus like the S10+ has 2 cams on the front. so how would 2 cams look in the center of the screen on top

    Question - does anyone know what would have been the reasoning behind moving the power button from the right side to the left side of the phone??

    alot of people wanted the Bixby button gone a long time now, but i am curious as to the relocation of the power button.

    Sorry, you just said 10+, so I assumed you were talking about the only Samsung 10+ currently available. Isn't the bigger Note 10 going to be called Pro? Or is that not settled yet?

    It would be a guess on anyone's part. Maybe the thought is that it would be easier to reach but it's hard to say without having it in hand.

    Seems there should be more delineation here from the N10 and N10 Plus. The Plus apparently has an sd slot and 1440p display.

    I'm totally enjoying the Note 9, does EVERYTHING great for me in every way. Two more months of twenty dollar payments then I'm done. With extended warranty and at least one more OS system update next year, the Note 9 will be with me for at least another two years.

    The 6.3" display is the Note 10 and the 6.7" display is the Note 10+.

    The Note 10+ has QHD, micro SD slot, 4300 mAh battery, new 855+ Snapdragon processor and 12 GB of RAM. The Note 10+ looks like the powerhouse phone you would expect from the Note line. The regular Note 10 not as much...
