    • Before we tear down, we take Note of these 10+ 5G specs:

    • 6.8" AMOLED Infinity-O display with 3040 × 1440 resolution (498 ppi), HDR10+ certified

    • Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 paired with 12 GB RAM and 256 GB internal storage

    • 4,300 mAh battery

    • Four rear-facing cameras (16 MP ultra-wide, 12 MP wide-angle with OIS, 12 MP telephoto with OIS, VGA DepthVision camera), plus a 10 MP selfie cam

    • Ultrasonic in-screen fingerprint sensor

    • S Pen stylus with Bluetooth connectivity and 6-axis sensor

    • IP68 dust and water resistance rating

    • We lay out (from left to right) last year's Note9 next to the new Note10+ and Note10+ 5G and try to spot the differences.

    • This year Samsung realigned the Note's cameras vertically. They also got rid of the rear fingerprint sensor—that's been moved under the display, like what we saw earlier this year.

    • At last, we're forced to mourn the loss of the headphone jack—supposedly a necessary tradeoff for a larger battery and improved haptic feedback.

    • It seems that Samsung, one of the last remaining Rebel allies, has decided to join the dark side.

    • Before we get any further, Creative Electron gives us a peek at some interesting internals—looks like we've got some fun exploration ahead.

    • Out comes the star of this show: the magic wand new and improved S Pen.

    • Now with gesture control, for wizard-like wireless control of your Note10.

    • Cameras on all the newest Notes are vertically aligned, but the 10+ includes a fancy new feature alongside that stack of sensors.

    • Samsung's DepthVision time-of-flight sensor—exclusive to the largest Note10—uses an infrared illuminator and VGA camera to quickly and accurately measure distance. This sensor enables or enhances many of the Note's features, including Live focus, AR effects, and 3D object scanning.

    There is space for a pen, but not a headphone jack?

    • Annnnd we're off! The delightful duo Heat and Pick get under the back cover without breaking a sweat (although the same may not be said for their wielders). It's almost like they do this every day.

    • This is standard procedure for most modern, glue-laden smartphones, but we sure wish that wasn't the case.

    • As we slice away at the adhesive, we notice that, this year, the cover is contoured around the volume and Bixby power buttons—not quite the change to the opening procedure we hoped for.

    Does the replacing of power button have an effect on the waterproofing of the phone!?

    sanjaya.sana - Yanıt

    • A few Phillips screws hold down the midframe assembly—nothing our tried-and-true Mako 64 bit kit can't handle!

    • With the midframe removed, we encounter a somewhat radical change: the motherboard is solely at the top of the device, Pixel-style.

    • While this allows for a wider battery, it makes the connection between mother and daughterboard trickier, necessitating these annoying interconnect cables that block battery access.

    • At least the cables are on top, rather than under a battery and primed for pry damage. So far, Apple's interlocking "L" shapes seem to be the best use of space we've seen...

    • Our trusty iSclack works so well on heavily-glued displays that we decide to try it on this glued-down battery.

    • The iSclack gives us some solid leverage on the battery, but it still takes a lot of isopropyl alcohol—and even more patience—before the adhesive surrenders the battery (beware those display cables!).

    • If we called the Note9's 15.4 Wh battery "ludicrous," the Note 10+'s 16.56 Wh powerhouse must be "plaid."

    • This energy bar weighs in at 59.1 g and measures 77.3 mm x 58.4 mm x 5.5 mm. That's 4.4 g heavier and 3 cm³ larger than the Note9's battery.

    • We jettison the SIM + microSD tray—a luxury that the smaller 6.3" Note10 has traded away—and release the motherboard.

    • Along for the ride are this Note's five cameras:

    • 16 MP ultra-wide (123° FoV)

    • 12 MP wide-angle with dual aperture (ƒ/1.5-ƒ/2.4)

    • 12 MP telephoto (2x optical zoom)

    • DepthVision time-of-flight infrared illuminator and sensor

    • 10 MP selfie cam

    • Although relieved of its many cameras, this board still feels like it's carrying some extra weight.

    • We pry off this mysterious green rectangle—which turns out to be a Qualcomm QTM052 mmWave antenna module.

    • "Millimeter wave" refers to RF signals with wavelengths measured in millimeters (24 GHz to 100 GHz). It offers super-duper fast download speeds, but can't travel long distances or penetrate walls very well. TL;DR: YMMV.

    • And one more thing: more board! Looks like Samsung took a note out of Apple's playbook and stacked their motherboard for maximum space savings.

    • We've been down this road before—and with a little help from our hot air station, we quickly carve through the vias and separate the boards.

    I did not realize that you guys were fanboys. Stacked boards are not new but of course Apple invented them. Disappointed..

    • The daughterboard comes out without a fuss, bringing the soldered-on USB-C port and lower microphone in tow.

    • Soldered-on isn't our favorite flavor of USB-C port, but at least there isn't much on this board, so replacements shouldn't be too expensive.

    • We frisk the edges of the phone to find ... two more mmWave antenna modules! Given 5G mmWave's limitations, having these directional, beam-forming antennas on each side (plus the third one facing the screen) helps the Note10+ achieve maximum effort.

    • The earpiece speaker looks pretty ordinary, except that it's completely trapped behind the screen. How do the songs get out? More on that later...

    • Just a couple components separate this phone from emptiness:

    • First, a square-ish vibration motor! For as long as we can remember, Samsung has employed the same circular LRA motor for all its phones' buzzers.

    • This new, larger motor may be the first sign that Samsung is finally taking haptic feedback seriously.

    • Or, hear us out—maybe they just needed something to take up a little more room where the headphone jack once was.

    • Finally, we pull out the new vapor chamber—no doubt the product of countless hours of engineering, since this phone is essentially a space heater with a battery. 5G tech and reverse-wireless charging don't come cheap in the cooling department.

    Tim Cook invented the vapor chanber

    • After some tedious behind-the-scenes heating and prying, we are rewarded with a peek at the backside of this Samsung-made 6.8” Dynamic AMOLED Infinity-O display.

    • This is the biggest, brightest, most color-accurate display ever on a Note phone—but we can't help but wonder what's keeping Samsung from a refresh rate update to 90 Hz, like its phablet competitor, the OnePlus 7 Pro.

    • The ultrasonic fingerprint sensor clings to the back of this behemoth display, just as it did to the S10 we tore down not too long ago. With it are some more ICs to ID:

    • Qualcomm QBT2000 in-screen fingerprint sensor controller

    • Samsung S6SY771X touchscreen controller

    • Winbond W25Q80EWUXIE 8 Mb serial flash memory

    • With the screen removed, we see that the earpiece speaker actually fires into a shallow metal chamber, which channels the sound waves into the teeny tiny grille along the top edge of the frame.

    • Can't quite make it out? We couldn't either. Computer, zoom and enhance.

    • Our teardown eyes ( x)( x) shift towards the S Pen. The seamless construction makes us reluctant to pry it open, so we get creative with some electrons, courtesy of Creative Electron.

    • Though, now that we think about it, this pen does have a few new features ... it's probably totally different from last year's on the inside ... oh heck, you know we couldn't resist. Ultrasonic cutter, meet S Pen.

    • The guts of the new S Pen are encased in an extra layer of hard plastic and epoxy. Chipping those away, we find:

    • A mystery chip marked SP912, likely the 6-axis sensor Samsung mentioned at their Unpacked event. Something's gotta be detecting those wand waves.

    • STMicroelectronics Accelerometer

    • Dialog DA14585 Bluetooth 5 SoC

    • Nichicon 2.4v SLB lithium-ion battery

    Nichicon makes capacitors. Not batteries. This is a capacitor.

    Thanh Tran - Yanıt

    It does look like a capacitor, but Nichicon says it’s a li-ion battery. Check the link. ;)

    • Well, we don't know about you guys, but we sure learned a heck of a lot from these bits—were you taking notes?

    • We saw a 5G millimeter wave antenna for the first time.

    • We de-layered Samsung's first "iPhone X" style board.

    • We solved the mystery of the missing earpiece speaker grille.

    • We even removed the stubborn battery without busting the display.

    • We'll call this teardown a win, but we can't say we're the biggest fans of this Note, and we have a feeling the repairability score will bear that out...

    Keep hammering away about the IPHONE X style board that Samsung COPIED!!!!

    omid ghanbari - Yanıt

    the double stacked boards is not exactly like Apple. Apple use flex to connect the boards. Samsung use a tertiary board and vias which should be much more reliable. we’ll see what happens next year. can iFixit x-ray the boards to see how many layers do they have?

    Thanh Tran - Yanıt

    Check the iPhone X teardown—it’s a stacked board configuration with a tertiary board and a multitude of vias. No flex cables. Same thing in the iPhone XS and XS Max.

    • Equally-sized Phillips fasteners means you only need to bring one driver for repairs.
    • Many components are modular and independently replaceable, but no more headphone jack means double duty for the USB-C port.
    • Every repair starts with painstakingly un-gluing the fragile glass rear cover.
    • Replacing the glued-down battery is tougher than ever, especially with board interconnect cables to work around.
    • All-too-common display repairs require either a complete teardown or replacing half the phone.

Really impressive work. Love that another company has finally started using stacked boards. Thanks for the teardown!

Will you guys do the Note 10 as well? I'm interested in seeing whether they've accomplished a density similar to the X.

Let’s say, just hypothetically of course, someone attempted to open the SIM Tray by accidentally inserting the ejection tool into the other round hole (or the ob-round hole between the two in case someone else “didn’t” make that mistake also) on the top edge of the phone. What type of damage would be done? Asking for a friend.

Casey B. - Yanıt

Hi Casey,

If someone inserted the SIM ejection tool (hypothetically of course!) into the oblong hole, no damage would be done to the phone. The point would have poked against a wall that is part of the earpiece speaker’s channel.

Arthur Shi -

Why not a detailed explanation on how to step #1 remove glue and remove cover? And where can I get some of the kool-aid? Can you inject it?

Erik Swanson - Yanıt

Hi Erik,

As stated in the warning at top, this teardown is an educational first look at the device, and is not meant to be used as a guide. Our repair guides will show up here, and contain accurate details (such as tools needed, how to unlock ZIF connectors, etc.) as well as step by step instructions on how to complete the repair.

Arthur Shi -

awesome phone hope i win lotto so i can afford service payments for up to 3-5 phones


Si introduzco por error el “clip” o “pincho” para quitar la bandeja "Sim” en el orificio del micrófono que se encuentra al costado, hay posibilidades de que rompa el micrófono o en el caso de que no, de que mi note 10+ pierda la certificación i68 y deje de ser resistente al agua?

If I mistakenly insert the "clip" or "skewer" to remove the "Sim" tray in the hole in the microphone, there is a chance that it will break the microphone or, if not, that my note 10 + lose the i68 certification and stop being waterproof?


tronkins - Yanıt

Don’t worry! You did not damage the microphone or lose the water resistance. The mic hole has a bend:

Arthur Shi -

Thank you very much, I am grateful… thanks!!!

I believe there is a screen there for dust. I poked the hole too and felt like I pushed through something. Would be nice to see a zoomed in picture of inside the hole with a bright light

Mansour Killuminati - Yanıt

What about replacing the main board (motherboard). It's doable naturally. But do you do so if the customer supplies the replacement. Your only guarantee being a good faith effort to do the job? … Or can you source one and do so cheaper than just buying another.
