Samsung Note 10’s New Feature to Protect it from Water a Step Further

Samsung’s prominent end-of-the-year flagship Note 10 is just around the corner. The stage is set for August 7, where rumors are rife that the South Korean giant will launch three Note 10s, just like its S10 sibling. The vanilla Note 10, Note 10 Plus and the Note 10 5G will embrace the users in just a week with almost same specifications but in different sizes. New leak suggests that the upcoming smartphone will be the world’s first phone to ship with IP69. Tipster Ishan Agarwal tweeted that the phone will indeed have a new IP69 rating with some other details.

All Samsung Galaxy Note10 Series phones will have the Super Fast Wireless & Wired Charging. Also, it will have a new IP69 Water Resistant Rating. The main 12MP will have f/1.5 as the lowest aperture. The display of Non-Plus is indeed FHD+ and not QuadHD (?)! #GalaxyNote10

The current generation of Samsung flagships has an IP68 rating, meaning this certification guarantees protection that your phone can stay in water up to 1.5m deep and are both, water and dust resistant. Usually, the 6 refers to dust protection, the highest in the order, which makes it total dust-tight. The 9 in IP69 refers to protection against high-pressure, high-temperature jet sprays, wash-downs or steam-cleaning procedures.”

Moreover, Ishan claims that the Note 10 will have a super-fast wireless & wired charging. It’s rumored that the wireless standard will max out at 20W, the wired charging can go as high as 45W. Another claim by the tipster is related to the camera’s main sensor, which will have f/1.5 as the lowest aperture. In addition, the regular Note 10 won’t be shipped with a QHD+ display but a Full-HD+ display which is quite disappointing as the regular S8 & S9 ship with a QHD+ display. Take these leaks with a pinch of salt.

A few colors have leaked as well. This year, Samsung is focusing on gradient design. A green gradient design has a greener color in the upper region while the bottom region is blue. The S Pen sports a matching green shade.

The pink color is not much of a gradient. Official names are yet unknown.
