Samsung’s next upcoming flagship, the Galaxy Note10 will be launched on August 7, which is not too far away, and as we approach the launch, leaks surrounding the new phones are increasing.
Both the Note10 and the Note10+ have been leaked in official-looking image, in two colour versions – black and a silver with a gradient finish on the back, that’s somewhat reminiscent of Huawei’s similar paint job for its P30 Pro. This colorway gets a blue S Pen.
Previously rumored things are confirmed too, like the single front-facing camera with its centered punch hole, the smaller bezels than the Note9, and the new arrangement of the rear camera island, which is vertical and off to one side unlike past Samsung flagships.
Again as rumored, the Galaxy Note10 has three rear cameras, whereas the Note10+ adds a ToF sensor as well. Neither model features a heart rate sensor on the back, so that seems to be on the way out. What these images neither confirm nor deny is whether the 3.5mm headphone jack is actually gone as suspected or if it survived one more round in Samsung’s high-end roster.
The Bixby button seems to be gone though – or to be more specific, the traditional Samsung power button on the right side is nowhere to be found, while the left side houses the volume buttons as usual and another key underneath them. In previous top of the line devices from the Korean maker this was the Bixby button, but it seems like it may now serve as the power button – as we’re assuming Samsung hasn’t just ditched that concept entirely.
According to past rumors and speculation, the Galaxy Note10 will sport a 6.3-inch screen while the Note10+ will have a 6.7-inch panel. Each one will also get a 5G version. Price-wise, expect the top spec Note10+ iteration to get dangerously close to the €2,000 level. The new phones will be announced at an event on August 7.
