[Bestbuy618 mobile channel]On August 21, Samsung held a Note 10 series China launch, revealing the price of the national version. In contrast to the launch of four models in the United States, the national version only has two specifications: 8GB 256GB Samsung Note 10 and 12GB 256GB Samsung Note 10 5G, which are priced at 6,599 yuan and 7,999 yuan, respectively. Let’s take a look at it together below. The Samsung Note 10 5G is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 855, has 12GB RAM and 256GB storage, a resolution of 3040×1440 (498 ppi), a battery capacity of 4300mAh, support ultrasonic screen fingerprint, IP68 level dust and water resistance, and a New S Pen.
It has a 10MP front camera and a four rear camera split ratio of 16MP ultra wide-angle lens, 12MP wide-angle lens
When compared to the Samsung Note 9 released last year, the Note 10 series retains some visual differences, such as the rear quad camera, the removal of the fingerprint recognition on the back, and the removal of the 3.5mm headphone jack. However, the Note 10 and Note 10 5G are nearly identical in appearance. The removal of 3.5mm may cause some users “confusion,” but don’t worry, the Samsung Note 10 series is equipped with Type-C headphones, which are still tuned by AKG. Furthermore, this is one of the reasons why the Note 10 series can have a larger battery capacity.
Interestingly, while the Note 9 looks similar to the Note 10 and Note 10 5G on the outside, the internal design of the body has changed significantly as evidenced by X-ray photos. The motherboard of the Note 10 Sharp is completely different from that of the Note 9.
Furthermore, the Note 10 5G’s motherboard clearly has more components due to the presence of a 5G module. The Samsung Note 10 5G also has several important highlights, including the new S Pen, which now includes gesture control to make remote control easier for users.
Furthermore, the Note 10 5G has a 3D depth-of-field camera with improved real-time focus, portrait mode for both photos and videos, and support for improved AR effects. The disassembly process then begins by heating the back cover, softening the adhesive, and separating the back cover with suction cups. It is worth noting that the Note 10 series has a unique design in the middle frame of the button part, but this does not complicate the disassembly.
Next, unscrew the middle frame fixing screws and separate the spacer. Because the main board of the Samsung Note 10 5G is located above the battery, the connection with the daughter board below requires the use of a row of wires, as you can see there are two very wide rows of wires above the battery.
The battery of the Samsung Note 10 5G was firmly fixed by adhesive, and iFixit had to remove it with the help of suction cups, a process that required patience and care. The Samsung Note 9 has a 15.4Wh battery, while the Samsung Note 10 has been upgraded to 16.56Wh and weighs 4.4 grams more. Next, remove the phone’s SIM Micro SD card slot, and then you can remove the motherboard.
A “mysterious” green rectangular module – Qualcomm QTM052 mmWave (millimeter wave) antenna module – is also present on the motherboard. The term “millimeter wave” refers to RF signals with millimeter wavelengths (24 GHz to 100 GHz). It has extremely fast download speeds but does not perform well over long distances or through walls. It should be noted that current 5G deployment in China does not include millimeter wave and primarily uses the sub-6GHz band (sub-6GHz).
To save internal space, the Samsung Note 10 5G also includes a stacked motherboard (the iPhone X is also beginning to use this type of design).
Don’t worry, there’s more: 1RH KM9515099 J05 3XAR27 in the red box; Qualcomm QDM3870 LTE RF front-end module in the orange box; Skyworks 13716-11 front-end module in the yellow box; Qualcomm WCD9341 Aqstic audio codec in the green box; Qualcomm PMX50 PMIC for X50 modem in the cyan box; Qualcomm PM8150, PM8150C, and PM8005 in the PMIC modem Qualcomm PMX50; blue box for Qualcomm PM8150, PM8150C, and PM8005 (iFixit speculated may be PMIC); pink box for S2D0S05 608B58 (iFixit speculated may be PMIC). The daughter board is a bit more “modest” than the motherboard of the Samsung Note 10 5G, but there are some differences compared to the previous Note tin class, the Type-C connector and microphone are welded to the daughter board, so when you need to repair it, you must replace the daughter board. However, iFixit points out that the daughter board contains few components, so the price should be reasonable; there are also two millimeter wave antenna modules on the phone’s edge. A total of three modules ensure that there are directional beam forming antennas on each side (plus a third screen-facing antenna) to improve the Note 10 5G experience in terms of 5G communications, followed by a speaker at the bottom of the body…
There are a few more components on the frame: the square vibration motor, the new large motor, which can provide a better vibration experience for the Samsung Note 10 5G, and the machine’s cooling module, the even heat plate. Because the Samsung Note 10 5G has a larger capacity battery, 5G support, and wireless charging, there is no need to doubt Samsung’s effort in heat dissipation, its heat dissipation module must have taken some effort! Now it’s time to separate the screen from the phone frame! You can see the back of Samsung’s 6.8-inch dynamic AMOLED Infinity-O display! Although the refresh rate has not been increased to 90Hz, the Samsung Note 10 5G has by far the largest, brightest, and most accurate color display in the Note series.
The machine uses an ultrasonic screen fingerprint, so the sensor is attached to the back of the display, similar to the S10 series. Another point worth noting here is that there doesn’t appear to be an earpiece on the front of the Samsung Note 10 5G body, so how does the sound propagate? iFixit’s teardown provides the answer, which can be seen in the corresponding area on the inside of the screen theme, and the sound is generated by the thin metal cavity below and guided To begin, look at the internal structure through an X-ray, which is completely different from last year’s S Pen due to the addition of many new features; of course, the unibody design means that attempting to disassemble the S Pen is tantamount to “destruction,” which is no problem for iFixit. After removing the S Pen’s protective case, you can see the numerous circuit components inside. The red box represents the “SP912” chip, which iFixit believes is the 6-axis sensor mentioned by Samsung; the orange box represents the Dialog DA14585 Bluetooth 5 SoC; and the yellow box represents the Nichicon 2.4v SLB Li-ion battery.
According to iFixit, the Samsung Note 10 5G was disassembled to reveal the 5G millimeter wave antenna for the first time, as well as the first Samsung “iPhone X” style motherboard, which revealed the secret of the machine’s lack of an earpiece speaker… iFixit gave the Samsung Note 10 5G a repairable score of 3 out of 10, with higher scores indicating easier repairability. The unified specifications of the fixing screws reduce the difficulty of disassembly, while several components are modular and can be replaced independently, but the elimination of the 3.5mm headphone jack also means that Type-C must take on a heavier “task,” and the need for careful handling of the fragile glass back cover increases the difficulty of disassembly, and because the battery is fixed by adhesive, disassembly requires patience. Last but not least, if the screen is to be replaced, the phone must be completely disassembled, which is equivalent to replacing half of the phone!
