Samsung Galaxy Note 10 Plus 5G May Launch On 6 December
Earlier this week, T-Mobile announced it was firing up its nationwide 5G network. In the same announcement, T-Mobile mentioned it would begin selling two 5G supported smartphones starting on Friday, the OnePlus 7T Pro 5G McLaren and the Samsung Galaxy Note 10 Plus 5G.
On Tuesday, a Twitter user reached out to @AskDes on Twitter, who manages T-Mobile’s social media content. @CDavisyo noticed that the T-Mobile listing lists Android 10 as the operating system for the new Samsung device and got confirmation that it isn’t a mistake.
Unlike the Samsung Galaxy S10 5G, which supports only mmWave 5G bands (between 24 and 100 GHz) the Note 10 Plus 5G only works on 5G bands below 6 GHz. Next year’s flagships will be arriving with the newly unveiled Snapdragon 865, which will be able to support both Sub-6GHz and mmWave 5G. Whether the Galaxy S11 will actually be configured this way remains to be seen.
The Galaxy Note 10 Plus 5G is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 and paired with the Qualcomm X55 Modem. There’s a large 6.8-inch Adaptive AMOLED screen with integrated Ultra Sonic fingerprint scanner. RAM is also maxed out at 12 GB with 256 GB of onboard storage and the unit is powered by a 4,300 mAh battery.
Both the OnePlus 7T Pro and Galaxy Note 10 Plus 5G will go on sale at T-Mobile starting on December 6.
