Galaxy Note 10 Rumour Roundup: This Mysterious Smartphone Can Surprise You
It’s a special year for Samsung. After the tenth anniversary of Galaxy S series, now it’s the much-famous Note series. The Galaxy Note smartphones have been a part of the analogy every wrong and right reason in the past.
The company is trying to do something with Note 10, it has never done before.
Galaxy Note 10 is going to redefine the Note series completely (as the company claimed). While several leaks are out already, only a few are in line with what could actually happen.
So, we have done a quick roundup of all the valid information available on the internet related to Galaxy Note 10.
Galaxy Note 10 Will Have Multiple Variants
Samsung may launch multiple variants of the upcoming Galaxy Note 10. Till now the South Korean tech giant has been releasing a single device every year with storage options to choose from. Well with Note 10, the device will have its own line up this time around.
There’s already been a leak about a toned-down Galaxy Note 10 device, expected to named Note 10E.
Galaxy Note 10E will have a smaller screen size with an expected in-screen ultrasonic fingerprint sensor. The cameras and sensors will differ as well.
Galaxy Note 10: Design & Display
On the out, Note 10 will have a more or less similar design as the previous generation Note 9 smartphone. With curved sides and bigger display panel, this time the company will probably be adding an Infinity-O cut on the side. The same punch-hole camera design from the Galaxy S10 series may get into the Note 10 lineup.
Though, the company recently claimed that they will soon launch a New Infinity display without any notch, bezels or cutout.
So, there are two possibilities: either a cut on the display, or a motorised pop-up camera.
The Galaxy Note 10 may come with the New Infinity AMOLED full screen panoramic display with pop-up selfie camera system like Vivo V15 Pro or Oppo F11 Pro. The same display technology will also be used in the upcoming OnePlus 7 smartphone.
The In-Display Fingerprint Sensor Will Make Its Debut
Just like the latest Galaxy S10 lineup (excluding the Galaxy S10E), the upcoming Note 10 will see an in-display ultrasonic fingerprint sensor making its way into the Note series. All the variants of the Galaxy Note 10 will feature an in-display ultrasonic fingerprint sensor (report).
The other biometric unlocking features will be available as well.
Galaxy Note 10 could float a massive 6.7-inch AMOLED display on top, compared to the 6.4-inch screen on its predecessor.
No Physical Buttons On Note 10: Report
Another leaked report suggested that the upcoming Galaxy Note smartphone will not feature any physical button. According to a recent leak, the Galaxy Note 10 is going to be the first Samsung smartphone to come with no physical button.
All the controls will be capacitive i.e touch controlled.
Users will just have to touch the capacitive buttons for an action, without actually pressing any button.
Galaxy Note 10: Hardware & UI
Just like the Galaxy S10 lineup, the upcoming Note 10 series too will be powered by the same chip series. In India, the Galaxy Note 10 smartphones will be powered by Samsung’s in-house Exynos 9820 octa-core 7nm chips. In US and some other markets, the company will be using the Snapdragon 855 processor.
The smartphone will come with at least 8GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage. The other variants will have 512GB and 1TB storage respectively.
Note 10 will run on Android 9 Pie based One UI interface. The current S10 One UI came with some surprising changes, and the same is expected with Note 10.
Galaxy Note 10 S Pen: What’s New?
The company introduced a new S Pen with Note 9 powered by Bluetooth. The S Pen with Note 10 is also expected to see some new features, though there won’t be any big upgrade. The company may certainly add some new features, but is expected to be limited.
Samsung certainly will add some upgrades to the existing S Pen features with a few added functionalities.
