There have been a number of Samsung Galaxy Note 10 leaks and reports so far but none of them has shared design-related details as much as the latest leak. This new leak is coming from an online publication 91Mobiles in collaboration with reliable tipster @OnLeaks. It includes a bunch of high-quality Galaxy Note 10 renders and a 360-degree render video.
These Galaxy Note 10 renders show a taller and wider design with slimmer bezels. This is something we have started to expect from Samsung's phablet lineup. It is shown to have an in-display selfie camera which is also known as the punch-hole camera. This is something we saw with the Galaxy S10 lineup but the different thing here is the placement. The phablet is shown with the camera in the center instead of the top right corner.
Samsung is said to offer a 6.3-inch Quad HD+ (3040 x 1440 pixels) Infinity-O AMOLED display with HDR10+ support. The back panel is shown to sport a triple rear camera setup which will be a first for the Galaxy Note lineup. It is vertical-alignment towards the top left corner and LED flash is outside the camera module. We will continue to see the glass back panel and Samsung branding in the center.
There is no fingerprint scanner on the back suggesting that there will be an in-display fingerprint sensor. There are some physical buttons on the sides which is contrary to a recent report claiming a button-less design. Although, the leak does mention that there will be no dedicated Bixby button and 3.5mm headphone jack on the Galaxy Note 10. There will be a USB Type-C port, S-Pen slot, speaker grill, and mic at the bottom.
It mentions that Galaxy Note 10 will measure 151 x 72 x 7.9mm in dimensions but it will be 8.3mm thick including the camera bump. There will be Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 and Exynos 9820 processor variants depending on the region. Other features include up to 12GB of RAM and Android 9 Pie out of the box.
Interestingly, Samsung will also unveil Galaxy Note 10 Pro that will bring a slightly larger 6.75-inch display and quad rear camera setup. The fourth camera will be a Time of Flight (ToF) sensor which is helpful for depth measurements. It will boast UFS 3.0 storage and 45W fast charging.
