Though the launch of the Samsung Galaxy Note 10 is still a few weeks away, a lot has already been revealed about the upcoming Samsung flagship through multiple leaks. In terms of design, the Note 10 is expected to deviate vastly from the S10 family which usually isn’t the case for Note series devices.

That being said, lets have a quick look at the everything we know so far about the device.

Note 10 and Note 10 Plus: What We Know So Far?

Design:

The Galaxy Note 10 (both variants) will have a single punch-hole cutout at the center which is different from the dual punch-hole cutout we saw on the Galaxy S10 plus. Moreover, S10’s punch-hole cutout was situated on the right corner of the device. The overall design of the device will be even more rectangular than past Note series devices. The camera orientation will also change from horizontal to vertical (much like Huawei’s P30 Pro). Also, the chin of the Note 10 will be the smallest amongst all android devices and will be comparable to the chin on Apple’s latest iPhones.

Charging Speed:

The Galaxy Note 10 Plus is rumored to feature industry-leading 45W fast charging. Sadly, the same can’t be said for the regular Note 10.

Rear  Cameras:

The regular variant of Note 10 will have three cameras, the same camera setup which was seen on the S10 Plus whereas the Plus variant of the Note 10 will feature a quad camera set up same as the S10 5G. But the main camera could be a triple aperture camera instead of the dual aperture camera seen on the S10 family.

Front Camera:

Both variants of the Note 10 will feature a single front camera which is a downgrade when compared to the S10 Plus or the S10 5G.

Internal Specs:  

Snapdragon 855 paired with 8/12 GB of RAM in the U.S. Exynos 9820 (8nm) or Exynos 9825 (7nm) paired with 8/12 GB of RAM for the rest of the world.

Battery Sizes:

The Plus variant of the device will feature a whopping 4500 mAh battery whereas the regular variant will have a 3400 mAh battery, which is disappointing, to say the least.

Misc:

No headphone jack!!, Ultrasonic In-Display Fingerprint Scanner, Sound-on-Display tech.

Pricing:

Though there is no confirmed information on the pricing expect the regular variant to cost around $1000 and the Plus variant to be somewhere around $1200.  

Release Date:

The Unpacked event for the device will be held in New York on August 7th 2019.

From everything, we know about the Galaxy Note 10, it’s pretty safe to say that the upcoming Samsung flagships have enough new features to distinguish them from the existing Samsung flagships i.e the S10 lineup. There are also some sensible downgrades made to the devices like the single front camera and presumably weaker stereo speakers (due to using of Sound-on-display tech) which will keep the S10 series neck and neck with Note series, unlike previous years where the Note series was clearly superior to the S series.
