Leaked renders of what is expected to the the Samsung Note 10 are all over the internet courtesy of @onleaks and @91mobiles. And since they’re always on point, this is definitely the Samsung Galaxy Note 10 that will probably launch this coming August.
The new things with the Note 10:
- Boxed design
- Tiny Centred Punch-hole selfie camera
- No headphone jack
- Vertical Triple Camera setup
- Under-the-display fingerprint scanner
- *Possible IR Blaster
- Price expected to be between $1100 and $1200
This boxy look though very outright and obvious has kind of been the separation between the S and Note lines. The difference is this year the box-iness is really prominent. But it is also incredibly good looking, and a good way for Samsung to make a design statement with the Note 10. Look at that design, this is something that would seem impossible just two years ago.
The bezels are greatly reduced on all sides, the curves are more prominent and it all looks like something that will be really fragile given it is very much all screen. I am expecting the under-the-display fingerprint scanner to be faster, and occupy more screen real-estate unlike on the Galaxy S10.
Why Samsung is joining other companies in doing away with the headphone jack after holding on for quite a while makes no sense. Is it that the device will now be thinner? Is it that they don’t have space, or is it that the headphone jack is truly now dead dead?
The device is expected to ship with up to 12GB or RAM, Android 9 Pie, 45W fast charging, and UFS 3.0 Storage. There could also be a PRO variant with a 6.7 inch screen, unlike these renders that show a 6.3 inch device. What are your thoughts on this design? Looks good? No?
