As we are now only two days away from the official unveiling, Samsung has accidentally confirmed one of the major Galaxy Note 10 features. It is the support for Superfast Charge which is Samsung's official name for its fast charging technology. This feature has been confirmed by the Galaxy First Look event's description page.
Samsung has been holding the event for some time and it is aimed at allowing fans to experience the latest flagships soon after the launch event gets over. The venue for the event is the Samsung 837 building in New York which is the only location for it. This event will be held this year as well and will offer fans an opportunity to get Galaxy Note 10 hands-on experience right after they will be made official on August 7th.
The event's description page reads, "Join us at Samsung 837 for a preview of the latest Samsung device. Be among the first to get hands-on with all the highly anticipated features. These include Intelligent Battery, Superfast Charge, Wireless PowerShare, the next-generation S-Pen, and so much more."
This confirms that the Galaxy Note 10 will become the third smartphone to support Samsung's Superfast Charge technology. It is currently available only on the Galaxy S10 5G and Galaxy A80. All other fast charging supported devices come with Samsung's Adaptive Fast Charging technology.
As for some new leaks, Evan Blass (@evleaks) has tweeted that Galaxy Note 10 models in the United States will indeed be coming with Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 processor. He had previously claimed that only Verizon would release Snapdragon 855 variant and all other U.S. carriers would have Exynos 9825 processor variants.
Lastly, another tipster Roland Quandt (@rquandt) has tweeted that the 256GB Galaxy Note 10 and Galaxy Note 10+ variants will cost $949 and $1,049 respectively in the United States. These pricings are undoubtedly expensive but since most U.S. buyers purchase new phones on carrier contracts, they would not be paying the whole amount upfront. It means Galaxy Note fans are likely to upgrade their devices this year as well

Samsung Galaxy Note10+ = 1099 USD
(256GB models. But no-one ever buys phones off-contract in the US, so who cares ;))
