We’re just days away from Samsung officially unveiling the Galaxy Note 10 and Galaxy Note 10 Plus on August 7, so it isn’t surprising that before the announcement, there is still a barrage of additional leaks and rumors coming our way. The latest one claims that Samsung’s Exynos 9825, a more powerful silicon than the Exynos 9820 (running in the Galaxy S10 range) will be a part of the Galaxy Note 10 models sold in the U.S. That doesn’t mean Qualcomm is going to miss out on all the action, quite the contrary, but it is surprising to hear that a Samsung SoC will be featured in a flagship model that’s inbound for the U.S. market.

Popular leakster Evan Blass is up to his very best on Twitter as he has revealed some key details concerning the hardware specifications of the Galaxy Note 10 U.S.-based models. With less than a week remaining for the announcement to go live, he states according to what he’s been told; except for Verizon, all other major U.S. carriers will be selling the Galaxy Note 10 and Galaxy Note 10 Plus featuring Samsung’s Exynos 9825.
For whatever reason, the tipster states that Verizon will be selling the Snapdragon 855-powered version of the Galaxy Note 10. Keep in mind that Evan Blass also states that there isn’t going to be a Snapdragon 855 Plus variant of Samsung’s upcoming flagship, meaning that if you want to experience the very best in performance from Qualcomm’s latest and greatest mobile chipset, you should either take a look at the ROG Phone II or the Black Shark 2 Pro.
This news is rather interesting because Blass earlier stated that both models will be fueled by the Snapdragon 855 Plus, and now he’s taken a step back from his original statement. Since there are less than seven days remaining for the launch to happen, we’d recommend that our readers treat this bit of information with a pinch of salt, and monitor closely what Samsung announces on August 7.
