Samsung will launch the Galaxy Note 10 on August 7 at a standalone Unpacked keynote event in New York City. Serial tipster @ishanagarwal24 has shared what appear to be official looking press renders of the upcoming Galaxy Note 10 and Galaxy Note 10+, giving us the best look yet at the two devices. Since the renders fall in line with all the leaks and rumours we’ve come to see till date, we have reason to believe that this could be it.
Last year, Samsung made a big deal about the Note 9’s S-Pen that came with some stand-alone qualities. The Galaxy Note 10 will likely focus not so much on improving upon the features of the existing S-Pen but more on the design aspect. The Galaxy Note 10 (and Galaxy Note 10+) will join the ranks of the Galaxy S10, Galaxy S10+ and Galaxy S10e (launched earlier in the year) with its Infinity-O punch-hole design. There will be a single camera cut-put on the front though – and not dual cameras like the Galaxy S10+.
Rumor has it that Samsung may also re-position the cut-out in the Galaxy Note 10 (and Galaxy Note 10+) – another design choice that should set it apart from the Galaxy S10+. The Galaxy Note 10 series is said to have the punch-hole dead-set in the middle – while in the Galaxy S10 devices, it’s on one end.
The renders corroborate these aspects while confirming a couple of additional details. The Galaxy Note 10 and Galaxy Note 10+ will be available in two colour options at least – a black and a silver with a Huawei P30 Pro-like gradation. The latter will also come with a blue-coloured S-Pen. While the Galaxy Note 10 will come with three rear cameras, the Galaxy Note 10+ will pack a fourth ToF sensor for 3D depth mapping.
Although the renders fail to confirm or deny the existence of a headphone jack, these seem to suggest that Samsung may be looking to drop the Bixby button, or integrate it with the power button.
Samsung is said to be working on as many as three Galaxy Note 10 phones – a regular 6.28-inch Galaxy Note 10 and a larger 6.75-inch Galaxy Note 10+ (or Galaxy Note 10 Pro) with its own separate 5G-ready model for select markets.
