No longer going now before the Samsung Galaxy Note 10 sees the light of day – an August launch is expected – and the latest from the rumor mill suggests that at least one Note 10 model is ditching expandable storage.
Max Weinbach from XDA Developers took to Twitter to reveal a few Note 10 clips from a source played with two of the upcoming phones. Apparently, a microSD card slot is only present on the Pro model.
It would be a break with tradition for Samsung, as an expandable storage support has long been a major role for its flagship phones. The Galaxy S10 phones can take up to 51
Of course, the standard Note 10 will undoubtedly provide plenty of internal storage on board, but having the option of expanding it is always useful.
About this headphone jack …
Weinbach's tweets also weigh in on the continued saga of supporting the headphone jack in Galaxy Note 10. Depending on which sources you think, the note 10 will have or may not have a 3 , 5 mm audio port.
According to these latest leaks, the headphone jack is retained on both Note 10 and Note 10 Pro, so you can continue to use your old wired headphones as usual (or invest in a new pair without having to switch to USB-C or wireless) .
This is the first year that Samsung launches a Pro edition of the note along with the standard model – if the rumors are correct. The multimode strategy has worked for the Galaxy S series, so Samsung is apparently keen to expand it.
Based on previous note launches, we should see the new phones that appear sometime in August, causing some speeds and camera gains over the 2018 model. As always, we will bring you the news as it has been published.
