Note 10 with Snapdragon 855 will not be Verizon exclusive
Rumors have started flowing prior to the launch of the Galaxy Note 10. However, this new rumor says that the Galaxy Note 10 with Snapdragon 855 will be exclusive to Verizon, which is not true.
From the reliable informant source Evans Blass, this rumor is not true at all. Previously, it was thought that the SD855 Note 10 is only exclusive to Verizon, which is no longer stands true.
Also, in a previous leak, Evans tweets that there will be a sole Snapdragon Galaxy Note 10, and rest of the Notes will feature the Exynos variants. However, this rumor is now mixed to dirt, as Evans calls himself stupid for sharing wrong info.
As usual, Samsung will continue to sell the Qualcomm based smartphone in the US and China. Whereas the rest of the world will get the Exynos variants. Which is completely normal.
If this was to be true, this would have ended Qualcomm’s reign in the US smartphone market. That too at a very large extent. Since Samsung generally uses Qualcomm Snapdragon in the US market.
Also, it is possible for the Note to feature a newer Exynos 9825 SoC on board for the other markets. This processor is likely rumored one, and there are not many details about the specifications. Although it is known that the slight older Exynos 9820 is a 10nm processor, can the 9825 be a 7nm or 8nm processor?
