Samsung will most likely introduce the Galaxy Note 10 in August that is still a couple of months to go. This, however, has not stopped the newsmongers from giving us a sneak peek at the phone’s design and specs. Online sources have leaked the CAD-based renders and a 360-degree video of the upcoming smartphone which are in line with the earlier revelations. The leaks have revealed some interesting new tidbits about the forthcoming flagship phone.
Leaks Reveal the Specifications of Samsung Galaxy Note 10
As for the specifications, the Galaxy Note 10 is expected to haul with Snapdragon 855/ Exynos 9820 SoC, up to 12 GB of RAM, and Android 9 Pie running out of the box. There have been reports speculating that Samsung could launch a Galaxy Note 10 Pro as well. The handset will allegedly feature an approximate 6.75-inch screen, quad-rear camera setup including a ToF sensor, and have UFS 3.0 storage and 45 W fast-charging support. It is noteworthy that the ‘Pro’ variant will have capacitive or pressure-sensitive buttons instead of the physical ones.
Looking at the fascia, we can see that Samsung will be holding onto the punch-hole design that is used in the Galaxy S10 series for the Galaxy Note 10 too. Per contra, the selfie hole on the Infinity O display will be positioned in the center rather than the right side for this particular handset. The display will be slightly smaller than the panel on Galaxy Note 9, sizing to 6.3-inch.
The renders also manifest that the display will have curved edges on both sides and take up much of the front panel, with thin uniform bezels on all four sides. Samsung, on the Galaxy Note 10 will be using an in-display fingerprint sensor. The upcoming handset will likely feature a potent AMOLED panel, with HDR10+ backing and 1,440-x 3,040-pixel resolution.
At the rear, Samsung Galaxy Note 10’s glass back panel has also been revamped with a fresh look. The triple camera module will pioneer in the Note series with the 2019 model, with the setup no longer coordinated at the center. Rather, the device will highlight a vertical triple camera setup at the top-left corner of the phone, similar to the Huawei P30 Pro. The camera sensor specifics are concealed at the moment.
Samsung is discontinuing the 3.5 mm headphone jack with the Galaxy Note 10 smartphone, along with the committed Bixby button. The news seemed to be a rumor but has been confirmed now. With the apparent change, Samsung is joining the ranks of Apple, Google, and OnePlus in ditching the dedicated audio jack from its flagship smartphones.
Towards the sides, the left panel of the Galaxy Note 10 has the power and volume buttons, while the right edge is completely clear. The bottom edge of the phone has a speaker grill, S-Pen, mic, and Type-C port for charging that may double up as audio jack. The SIM card tray at the top edge, placed alongside another mic and what looks like an IR blaster, raises doubts, as there may not be enough space for both tray and the camera components to accommodate both.
The device may measure 162.6 x 77.4 x 7.9 mm. Online sources stress that the Galaxy Note 10 will have a very thin metal frame that becomes a bit thicker at the buttons as we saw on the Samsung Galaxy S10 5G.
