In keeping up with the positive reviews received by the Samsung Galaxy S10 smartphone series, the expectations for the upcoming Galaxy Note 10 lineup are at an all-time high. Leaks are flooding in from various sources that give an idea of what is in store for followers later this year.
Earlier news leaks had suggested that the company’s next flagship would have a quad rear camera setup. The latest reports confirm that four cameras will be arranged in a style that shifts from Samsung’s traditional design mechanism. Another point to be noted here is that the South Korean technology giant may integrate a centrally placed punch-hole notch on the front of the smartphone.
The camera set-up of the Galaxy Note 10
The rear camera setup has been debated a lot in the past week over its design and positioning. The rear camera arrangement in the latest Galaxy S10 series smartphones are horizontally aligned on the upper half; however, the upcoming Note 10 is expected to have a vertical rear camera module placed at the top left section of the back panel. The said camera sensor arrangement reveals the positioning of each sensor strengthening the claim of the renders.
The rear camera setup can be distinguished into two separate modules. The primary cutout houses the Primary camera sensor, the wide-angle lens, and a Telephoto lens. However, the smaller module accommodates the LED flash, the ToF (Time of flight) sensor and the Flood illuminator i.e. the flash. It seems that the flash module will likely be fastened onto the motherboard of the device, above or below the ToF sensor and the illuminator.
It has been reported that the renders lack the existence of a heart rate sensor on the rear panel, indicating that the Note 10 will do away with it similar to the Galaxy S10 5G. A detailed study into other renders illustrates that the Galaxy Note 10 will feature a punch hole display and a centrally placed notch, which is yet to be observed on any punch-hole display.
Apart from the grandiose look, this feature will allow for an increased screen-to-body ratio. The leaks further state that the flagship smartphone will retain the headphone jack, which may come as a relief to future consumers. Though no official news regarding the launch date of the Samsung Galaxy Note 10 has come out, the device is rumored to launch in the month of August 2019.
