Until now Samsung didn’t have the ‘courage’ to ditch 3.5mm headphone jack in favor of USB Type-C. This time around things seems to have changed with the upcoming Galaxy Note 10. According to leaks and renders, the Galaxy Note 10 will not come with a headphone jack.
The Galaxy Note 9 packs 6GB RAM and an octa-core Snapdragon 845 chip running at 2.7GHz. Then there’s the iPhone X packing 3GB RAM and an A11 Bionic chip which is soon approaching its first anniversary. This should translate into the Note 9 beating the iPhone X handily in benchmarks and real-life use.
Samsung’s latest Note, the Galaxy Note 9, is all set to go on sale in most parts of the world from next week. The handset will take on Apple’s 2018 iPhone X Plus which will have a similar $1,000 price tag and a massive 6.5-inch display.
Samsung has once again managed to set the smartphone display bar higher with the Galaxy Note 9. With the iPhone X last year, Apple managed to snatch the best performing smartphone display award from DisplayMate dethroning the Note 8 which the Korean company managed to again reclaim with the Galaxy S9 earlier this year.
Half of the people who purchased a Galaxy Note 7 will switch to an iPhone, according to a new survey. Fortunately for the South Korean company, the fiasco doesn’t appear to have damaged its brand too much, with the vast majority still willing to buy other Samsung products.
The Galaxy Note 7 is quite possibly the fastest Android you can buy right now, but it has a hard time keeping up with the iPhone. We’ve already watched it get beaten by the iPhone 6s, but Samsung’s new phablet is well and truly embarrassed by the iPhone 7.
Samsung’s obsession with taking advantage of the “dull” iPhone 7 is being blamed for the Galaxy Note 7’s exploding battery debacle. It’s thought the South Korean company rushed its latest flagship to capitalize on a potentially disappointing iPhone refresh.
Consumer Reports has called for an official recall of the Galaxy Note 7 following reports that some devices have exploded while charging. Samsung has already confirmed that some units are affected by a battery issue, but it hasn’t officially asked customers to return their devices.
