First Galaxy Note 10 leak brings no real info, but we probably already know some key details
Samsung just released the new Galaxy Note 9 a few weeks ago, but it’s understandable that Samsung fans are already thinking about next year’s new Note phone. It’s not that the Note 9 is a bad phone, of course. In fact, the exact opposite is true — it’s a fantastic phone and is easily one of the best Android handsets money can buy right now. As we discussed thoroughly in our Galaxy Note 9 review though, the problem with the Note 9 isn’t power or performance. The problem is the fact that the Galaxy Note 9 uses almost the exact same design as last year’s Galaxy Note 8, and it doesn’t offer many compelling new features to warrant an upgrade to a phone with the same look. That strategy works wonderfully for Apple, but not so much for Samsung — remember, the Galaxy S9 and S9+ are shaping up to be Samsung’s worst-selling Galaxy S phones since 2012.
People who have Android phones that are a couple of years old will upgrade to the Note 9 and adore it. Rightfully so, since it’s an awesome phone. But all the other Samsung fans out there who already have recent phones are probably waiting until 2019 to upgrade, since Samsung has a ton of excitement in store for us next year.
