    That’s confirmed? I had heard rumors of Samsung gathering their courage to omit the headphone jack, but didn’t know the other things might be going away. Big negatives, especially the micro-SD loss.

    Used GN9s might become hard to find on the market once word gets around.

    It was confirmed by the fcc filing if memory serves correct.

    I saw this morning that the mSDXC cared slot is on the 10 Large,but not on the regular 10 - as for their "courage" I guess it is an object lesson about mocking Apple and following them two years later....

    All that is confirmed from the specs we've seen

    Be careful with that one. We've seen a couple of them come through customer hands. Both had issues with cooling and worse, the first area that gets flaky is the digitizer.

    There is new firmware out there for it that we haven't tested so perhaps they have fixed it.

    Yes, yes it is. I saw it on Unbox Therapy.

    WHAT? Don't care about headphone jack and LEDS but SD card is a deal killer. So, now I have to decide on the Note 10+ or noting (or the 9 I guess if I want to replace my 5 which I'm not sure about). Guess I'll have to see what happens in the Go space to see what I need in a phone.

    Typo or brilliant pun, that’s the question.
