The Galaxy Note 10 series is launching this week and there’s probably no surprises left since the devices were leaked extensively. Just days before the big event, we now get a clear look at the accessories that were shared by Sammobile and Roland Quandt. The new images also confirm a couple of details especially the availability of the 3.5mm headphone jack.
Samsung is offering both the Galaxy Note 10 and Note 10+ an optional View Cover which provides protection on all sides. There’s a transparent edge in front which provides a glimpse of the time as well as notifications. If you look at the bottom, you’ll notice that it has an S Pen silo, a speaker grill, a USB-C port and also a tiny hole for the microphone. This confirms that the Galaxy Note 10 will no longer come with a 3.5mm headphone jack.
Interestingly, the power button which is usually placed on the right is now moved to the left. This is quite an odd decision since you can’t access the power button when the View Cover is closed.
Similar to the Galaxy S10, there’s also the LED cover which can illuminate to show notifications or even a countdown timer if you’re taking a picture. It’s a rather slim sleeve which protects only the sides and the rear of the device.
Protective Standing Cover
Also available is the protective standing cover that has vertical lines at the back. It also features a kickstand for you to tilt the device at an angle for video viewing.
USB-C to 3.5mm dongle
Since the Galaxy Note 10 doesn’t come with a 3.5mm headphone jack, Samsung will be including a dongle as pictured above. The Galaxy S10 will be the last Samsung flagship smartphone to offer both 3.5mm headphone jack as well as a microSD card expansion.
Super Fast Charger
Previously, it was rumoured that the Galaxy Note 10 will support an even faster 45W charging. Based on the image above, it appears that Samsung is including a 25W Super Fast Charging brick which is similar to the one that’s offered on the Galaxy A70 and Galaxy A80. Perhaps, the Galaxy Note 10 can support faster speeds but you’ll need to buy the charger separately. All shall be revealed at the launch which will be streamed live at 4am this coming Thursday (8th August).
