Samsung’s upcoming Galaxy Note 10 has been making rounds on the rumor mills. The latest leak features the case renders of the phone along with the renders for the alleged Galaxy Note 10 Pro variant. Going by the design of these case, the punch-hole camera is placed in the center of the display while the rear camera setup is in a vertical manner placed in the upper left corner of the back panel. Leaked by SlashLeaks, the cutouts in the cases somewhat confirms the expected camera placement on the Galaxy Note 10 and Note 10 Pro.
Samsung Galaxy Note 10, Note 10 Case Renders Reveal Camera Setup
The Galaxy Note 10 and the Galaxy Note 10 Pro phones are expected to have a completely different design than the predecessor, the Note 9. Case renders for the Galaxy Note 10 Pro reveal a quad-camera setup on the rear and a punch-hole selfie camera design at the center while the Note 10 variant gets triple camera setup. Now, the case renders strengthen the previous rumors. The Galaxy Note 10 series was earlier rumored to come with virtual buttons instead of physical buttons for volume and power. However, tipster Ice Universe recently stated that Samsung would not go ahead with the initial plan and the Galaxy Note 10 series would most likely feature physical buttons like the Galaxy Note 9.
To recall, the Galaxy Note 9 had a horizontal rear camera setup and a standard front camera design. Not much has been reported concerning the S-Pen functionality on the upcoming Note 10 series; we can expect Samsung to make substantial tweaks there too, after all, S-Pen in one of the highlights on the Note 10 and also a distinguishing factor from other Samsung phones. The Galaxy Note 9 debuted with Bluetooth LE connectivity for the S-Pen alongside controls for media. It would be interesting to see what the company brings out this year for the S-Pen. Also, one of the patent applications illustrations by Samsung for the S-Pen hinted at camera integration, but that seems to be highly unlikely for the company to implement.
Other than the design and camera placement, some of the previous reports also hinted the specs we can expect. The Galaxy Note 10 is expected to feature a 6.3-inch curved AMOLED display, Snapdragon 855/Exynos 9820 SoC, rear camera setup with 2x optical zoom, and an ultrasonic In-display fingerprint. Some reports also revealed that Samsung could ditch the 3.5mm headphone jack alongside the Bixby button on the Note 10 series. The Note 10 Pro, on the other hand, is expected to pack a 6.7-inch curved AMOLED display and a 4,500mAh battery with 25W fast charging.
Samsung Galaxy Note 10, Note 10 Pro May Debut on August 10
One of the latest reports concerning the launch of the Note 10 series suggests that Samsung could make devices official on August 10, 2019. Interestingly, Samsung launched the Galaxy Note 9 on August 9, last year. The Galaxy Note 9 later went on starting August 24, 2018. Going by this timeline, the Galaxy Note 10 might go on sale August 25, 2019. Although Samsung has officially confirmed nothing, it seems likely that the company may stick to the rumored timeline.
