With barely a fortnight to go for the launch of the Samsung Galaxy Note 10, some more clarity is now available over some detailing here and there. The main information to emerge now is that the primary sensor that the Samsung Galaxy Note 10 will come fitted with will be the same as the one seen on the last flagship, the Samsung Galaxy S10. The source, however, adds that the South Korean company would be including some new feature with this device’s optics section. The nature of this new feature has not been shared yet.
Samsung to Change Camera Configuration with Galaxy S11
The same source, Ice Universe has further predicted that the 12 MP 1/2.55″ 1.4μm sensor that Samsung has been using for many years may be withdrawn from the next year. This sensor S5K2L4, which is Samsung’s in-house production, has been a common fixture in their flagship smartphones for long. Ice Universe says that the company will come up with a new and improved sensor beginning with the Samsung Galaxy S11 to be unveiled in the first quarter of 2020. The S5K2L4 will be part of the triple camera setup on the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.
Note10 uses the same main camera S5K2L4 as the Galaxy S10, but with the previous year, Samsung will add new features to it (there is a very technical feature), Note10 is the end of the 1.4μm camera, starting from S11, Samsung camera will be a new beginning. pic.twitter.com/Xc36rEalqB

It is the 3D Time of Flight (ToF) camera on the Note 10 that is keeping a lot of people interested though.
No Change in the Processor for the US Market
The other strong rumor to have hit the online forums in the past couple of days has been the switch to the Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 Plus mobile platform for the Samsung Galaxy Note 10 instead of the Snapdragon 855. This rumor is now being dismissed as just a rumor, and Samsung will stick to the Snapdragon 855 SoC only for the Note 10 model. This is as far as the US market goes. For most other markets there will be a new Exynos chipset being developed by the company. This is no big deal since the South Korea major has followed the same practice earlier too of having two sets of processors for different markets. There is no information what this new chipset will be called and it appears it will be different from the one on the Samsung Galaxy S10 even.
These are still opinions and predictions, though from sources who usually get it right. An official confirmation from Samsung, however, is the right way to accept them as such.
