As with previous Samsung Galaxy S and Note launches, it seems that the upcoming Samsung Galaxy Note 10 will not be a secret when it gets announced next month on August 7. Images of the Note 10 and Note 10+ have been leaked online.
The leaks came via WinFuture and reveal a centre-aligned punch hole camera on the front of the Note 10. On the rear, there are three cameras vertically aligned on the rear of the device. It seems aside from the pinhole cut-out, the Samsung Note 10 will also have a 6.3-inch Infinity-O display. By the side of the Note 10 is the S-Pen stylus. The image also shows a volume and power button on the left of the handset, with no Bixby button on the right.
One of the possible colour options for the Note 10 seems to be a blue-purple pearlescent paint job, heavily reminiscent of Huawei’s gradient colour schemes.
Rumours have also surfaced that the Note 10 will not sport a traditional headphone jack, making it the first Samsung smartphone to be without the headphone jack. The Note 10 will also reportedly retain a 60 Hz refresh rate, meaning it’ll lose out to some other smartphones on the market with a much higher refresh rate, such as the OnePlus 7 Pro which has a refresh rate of 90 Hz.
First announced in June, the Note 10 will be launched on August 7, at the Samsung Unpacked event at the Barclays Center in New York, the exact same place Samsung used to launch the Note 9 last year.
The Galaxy Note is the most premium line of mobile devices in Samsung’s repertoire of smartphones, and typically arrives in August each year with high-end specs aimed at competing against Apple’s yearly iPhone release in September.
Of course, we can’t be completely sure of anything until Samsung confirms it during the official launch. Till then, do take all rumours and leaks with a pinch of salt.
