Galaxy Note 10 Exclusive Reveals Samsung’s Surprise Upgrade

Samsung is heavily redesigning the Galaxy Note 10 with some killer tech, but it appeared the company was about to blow the basics. Until now.

Following news Samsung is pulling 25W fast charging from the Galaxy Note 10 (seemingly because it’s rubbish), popular insider Ice Universe has updated his information to reveal Samsung will actually fit a charger more powerful than 25W. Moreover, I have also been able to verify this myself through a trusted source.

“You should be thinking bigger [not smaller]. That’s all I can say about it right now but expect to be pleasantly surprised and not disappointed when the charging specs are released publicly,” revealed my source.

Similarly, Ice Universe added the image of Superman’s S logo in his update leading many to believe this teases 50-watt charging. While seemingly outlandish (the Galaxy S10 has a 15W charger), this is actually very real with Oppo’s SuperVOOC charger hitting approximately 50W and charging its Find X Lamborghini from 0-100% in just 35 minutes.

With this in mind, when Ice Universe notes Samsung’s “battery capacity and charging speed will no longer be Samsung’s weaknesses” and could even be an advantage, 50W is the bar set by the competition.

Furthermore, if Samsung nails this then it could prove to be the cherry on the top. We already know the Galaxy Note 10 will outgun the S10, feature a better camera and Verizon has let the cat out of the bag that the Note will have 5G at launch. So throw ballistic fast charging into the mix and Samsung is going to have a big hit on its hands.

Samsung Suddenly Confirms Galaxy Note 9 Upgrade

In recent weeks, leaks have not been kind to the Galaxy Note 9. Looking to reassure fans, however, Samsung has now confirmed the next generation feature its smartphone will have…

Speaking to The Korea Herald, Gray G. Lee, head of the AI Center Under Samsung Research, revealed the Galaxy Note 9 will be the launch device for Bixby 2.0. This may trigger sneers given the Bixby smart assistant has been widely derided since it launched with the Galaxy S8 last year, but not so fast.

Lee says Bixby 2.0 will be more than just a personal assistant. Instead, it will be an “artificial intelligence platform” which enhances the performance and user experience across the phone. The Assistant itself will also have enhanced natural language processing, improved noise resistance capability and faster response times.

It is also worth noting that, while it has fallen behind Google, Amazon and Apple in the AI wars, Samsung is deadly serious about artificial intelligence.

Lee says Samsung now has a 1,000-strong AI workforce and will consider merger and acquisitions of promising AI businesses. He also revealed Samsung expects to Bixby to be running on 14 million Samsung devices by the end of the year.

And here’s where the Galaxy Note 9 specifically, becomes intriguing…

In a new tweet, ever-mysterious, ever-accurate leaker Ice Universe states “Note9’s UX design and interactive experience are worth the wait. Maybe we can call it Crown UX”. Given Ice Universe has been arguably the Galaxy Note 9’s biggest critic in recent weeks, that’s high praise.

Software has long been Samsung’s Achilles Heel, so this is extremely encouraging. Will it be enough to make-up for disappointing Galaxy Note 9 hardware? The good news is we won’t have to wait long to find out…
