Ahead of its unveiling on August 7, press renders of the Galaxy Note 10 and Galaxy Note 10+ have leaked online. The renders show off the handsets in all their glory including the new color scheme that Samsung is planning to debut.
The renders confirm that the Galaxy Note 10 series will feature a centered punch-hole camera setup at the front. Unlike the Galaxy S10+, both Note 10 devices will also only feature a single camera at the front. A physical fingerprint scanner is missing on both devices because they will come with an in-display ultrasonic fingerprint scanner like the S10 series.
The new twilight color scheme as shown in the renders is definitely interesting as it looks very similar to what Huawei offers with its P30 series. Huawei was once known for releasing phones whose designs mirrored that of Apple and Samsung but the tables seem to have turned now.
The renders also confirm that Samsung has done away with the Bixby button on its Galaxy Note 10 series. Given that Bixby has failed to live up to the hype, it makes a lot of sense for Samsung to get rid of the button altogether.
Samsung is also joining Apple in ditching the headphone jack with the Note 10 series. While not visible in the renders, the company has reportedly ditched the headphone jack from its flagship Note series this time around.
The Galaxy Note 10 is going to be the smaller brother of the Note 10+. While both devices will sport the same internals, the Galaxy Note 10 will feature a smaller 6.4-inch QHD+ Dynamic AMOLED display while the bigger Note 10+ will ship with a 6.7-inch display. Both phones will be powered by a Snapdragon 855/Exynos 9820 chip, 8GB RAM, and pack oodles of storage space alongside a dedicated microSD card slot.
The Galaxy Note 10 will feature a vertical triple-camera setup at the rear that would be similar to the Galaxy S10 series. This will include a primary dual-aperture 12MP shooter, a 12MP telephoto lens, and a 16MP ultra-wide angle shooter. The Galaxy Note 10+ will feature a quad-camera setup which will include an additional ToF sensor.
The Galaxy Note 10 series will take on the 2019 iPhone 11 Max when it launches later this year.
