It’s not uncommon that Samsung launches its new Galaxy Note devices in August of every year, so the latest tip doesn’t reveal anything unexpected. But, it does include a probable launch date where we could find the Galaxy Note 10 getting unveiled. According to a report from South Korean media, the launch of the phone is just two months away and it may happen on August 10.
Taking a look at the past, you would know that Samsung unveiled the Galaxy Note 9 on August 9, 2018, and the sale started on August 24. So, it can be assumed that the Galaxy Note 10 may go up for sale on August 25. But, take it with a pinch of salt, of course, because it’s just a hunch. The report from ETNews doesn’t tip anything else except the launch of the phablet.
But there are so many rumors and leaks already available that you can look for meanwhile. The recent 3D CAD renders have already revealed the design of the device. Up till now, this design hasn’t achieved a good response from the tech enthusiasts. The punch-hole placed on the top-center of the display looks bizarre. The South Korean company received much appreciation for the Galaxy S10 series design and how amazingly it put the wallpapers in sync with the side punch holes. But this punch hole in the center on the Galaxy Note 10 doesn’t look good at all.
Well, going by these CAD renders, one can see the device must be sporting in-display fingerprint scanner as there’s no scanner mounted on the back. There’s no headphone jack and a dedicated Bixby button as well. There are triple lens cameras on the back and all are stacked up vertically in a module. Samsung is said to offer a 6.3-inch Quad HD+ (3040 x 1440 pixels) Infinity-O AMOLED display with HDR10+ support.
According to some previous leaks, the Galaxy Note 10 may support fast-charging tech at 45W. Also, it’s rumored to lunch in two variants – one is going to be the ‘Pro’ variant that is said to be lacking physical buttons and thus will have pressure sensitive edges, and another will be the standard Galaxy Note 10 but with no headphone jack. However, a renowned tipster, Ice Universe that offers leaks mostly on Samsung’s unannounced products, said that Samsung did test a key-less design of the Galaxy Note 10 but the plan was eventually dropped as the device didn’t pass Samsung’s rigorous testing.
Later on, fast-forward to this week, it got confirmed from the CAD renders of the Pro model that the device does include the physical buttons.
