20th February is the date Samsung is set to launch the Galaxy S10, but even now there isn't a whole lot of missing information about that phone. So there's only one thing for it: it's time to start speculating about the Galaxy Note 10, which is a good seven or eight months away.
The speculation this time around comes from the prolific Samsung leaker Ice Universe. Posting on Weibo (via Gizmo China) he claims Samsung will have the Exynos 9825 processor will be ready by the second half of 2019. Currently the expectation is that the Galaxy S10 will be powered by the Exynos 9820, and this tiny piece of information has led to speculation the Note 10 may run the newer chipset. That's notable because it would be the first time in forever that a year's Galaxy Note doesn't use the same chipset as the Galaxy S.
Of course it's way too early to say if anything is definite. The newer Exynos might not be ready for the second half of 2019, and if it is the Galaxy Note 10's specs might have been locked down already. It's impossible to say for sure, especially at this early stage. But we live in a world where people are always hungry for new leaks and rumours, so we're hearing about this stuff earlier and earlier.
