Samsung today announced that it will be launching the Galaxy Note 10 on August 7th. The teaser from the company highlights the S Pen and the punch-hole camera of the upcoming handset.
This time around Samsung is expected to launch two different variants of the Galaxy Note 10: a regular version featuring a 6.3-inch QHD+ Dynamic AMOLED display and a 6.7-inch variant dubbed Galaxy Note 10+.
Leaks confirm that Samsung has switched to a centered punch-hole display on the Note 10 series compared to the S10 series. I presume Samsung is hinting at this very camera in its teaser below.
Leaks have also confirmed that unlike the Galaxy S10 series, the Note 10 series will pack a vertical camera setup at the rear. The bigger Note 10+ will come with a quad-camera setup which will include a ToF sensor apart. The other three camera sensors are going to be identical to the ones we have already seen on the Galaxy S10 series: a 12MP telephoto sensor, a 12MP primary shooter, and a 16MP ultra-wide angle sensor.
Internally, the Galaxy Note 10 series is expected to pack the same specs as the Galaxy S10. This means we are looking at a Snapdragon 855/Exynos 9820 chip, 8GB RAM, 128/256GB storage, microSD card slot, and beefy batteries. Samsung is expected to debut a 25W or 45W fast charging solution which will be a part of the Galaxy Note 10 series as well.
After mocking Apple for a few years, there are rumors that Samsung itself will ditch the headphone jack on the Galaxy Note 10 series this year.
The Galaxy Note 10 will likely go on sale within a couple of weeks of its unveiling on August 7th. The device will take on Apple’s upcoming 2019 iPhone 11 Max and the iPhone XR. The two-variant strategy will also ensure that Samsung is able to attract a wider range of audience who might be put off by the high price of the Galaxy Note 10+.
