Evan Blass is a reliable leaker, but this time he was not so reliable and he confirmed that himself. According to Blass, he did push out the wrong info and he feels really stupid that he did that.
So, in the follow-up tweet, he said that according to people who have the first-hand knowledge of the matter says that Galaxy Note 10 devices will still have Qualcomm chipsets in the United States, just like they have those for every Samsung flagship for years now.
Like expected, the chipsets will be Snapdragon 855, no changes whatsoever.
Wondering what the rumor was in the first place?
Well, as the launching date of Samsung Galaxy Note 10 is getting nearer, the rumours are increasing in number. And on the top of those rumours, a very reliable leaker, Blass said that there just might be some technical issues with the internals of the device which will have a high effect on the performance of the device. However, in a follow-up tweet, he cleared that up.
What does that mean for us?
Along with the Snapdragon 855 chipsets, the models of Galaxy S10 and S10 Plus have arrived with Exynos 9820 in some regions.
Based on the 7nm process, the 855 performed better than the 8nm of Exynos 9820. So the real question is, what real upgrade would the new Exynos 9820 provide?
This update is possibly going to be unique to Galaxy Note 10 and probably it will be an iterative upgrade as well. So the limited tweaks that this upgrade would offer will not be enough to compete with the Snapdragon 855 in overall performance. This means that if you are buying a brand new Verizon Galaxy Note 10 then you are making a weak deal.
However, the Exynos 9820 might have some edge over Snapdragon 855, after all. How? Well, Verizon might just get the access to a Galaxy Note 10 whose performance is just the best.
Anyway, if Verizon does get this handset, even then I will hold off until I get some thorough performacne analysis before ordering a unit. So, just hang on tight, there is more coming.
