As with every major release from every big manufacturer, rumors have already started flying around about the Samsung Galaxy Note 10. Some of them are actually pretty darn realistic and credible, so let's check them out!
1: Vastly Improved Camera
Cameras have turned out to be quite a big deal in smartphones. In fact, you could say that it's the number one thing that most people look at when buying a new phone.
So, it's no surprise that Samsung has focused so much on it. In fact, they recently announced that they managed to make a 64-megapixel camera, which, by the way, is the biggest resolution for a mobile camera right now.
Other than that, we're also expecting improvements in low-light conditions. But, at the moment, no specific mentions have been made about technical details and such.
Other than that, at the massive surprise of, well, nobody, the Samsung Galaxy Note 10 is expected to have numerous cameras. That's kinda the case with most phones out there anyway.
We're expecting at least a telephoto lens along with a wide-angle camera. But, we'll see.
2: Pricing And Availability
Most of Samsung's flagships are currently flirting with $1000 price tags. So, we're expecting that the Samsung Galaxy Note 10 will fall pretty close to that amount.
Obviously, chances are that we'll get at least a few options in terms of RAM, storage, and pricing. After all, that has been the case for at least a few years now.
In terms of availability, rumor has it that Samsung's phablet will come out towards August. But, we don't have official confirmation of that just yet.
Speaking of different versions, there is a chance that the phone will come in two different sizes. One is 6.7 inches and the other is 6.4.
Both of those sizes are rather huge. So, we're expecting to see some rather tiny bezels. Otherwise, this is going to be a pain to operate with one hand - if possible at all.
Some rumors are saying that the smaller version is going to be available only for Europe. But, we frankly don't see any reason for Samsung to do that.
Other rumors, however, are also saying that we'll see four different versions with the most expensive variant costing well over $1K. However, the Galaxy Note series is almost always coming with a single device. So, we highly doubt that this is going to be the case.
3: Bigger Battery And Faster Charging Speeds
Batteries have been a huge pain in the bum for a long time now. In fact, it's probably the number one issue that smartphones have right now.
Thankfully, the Galaxy Note 9 originally came with a 4,000 mAh battery. So, we're expecting that the Samsung Galaxy Note 10 will come with either the same or a bigger battery compared to its predecessor.
According to our sources, the bigger version of the phone will come with a whopping 4,500 mAh battery which, frankly, is rather insane.
As for charging, the rumors were saying that the phone would support fast charging with more than 25 watts of power delivery. However, the very popular leakster, Ice Universe, mentioned that this is not true. So, believe whoever you want. We don't have official confirmations either way.
4: Samsung Galaxy Note 10's Desing
Samsung truly makes some very sexy devices. The Note 10 is expected to be one of the sleekest phones out there. But, according to the rumors, a few sacrifices will have to be made for that.
First of all, no buttons. ETNews is expecting that Samsung's upcoming flagship will come with a buttonless design and gesture controls to compensate for the lack of buttons.
Now, this design brings both positive and negative aspects along with it. So, kinda a matter of personal preference.
Other than that, we're also expecting to see an in-display fingerprint sensor. And correct us if we're wrong, but it looks like this is becoming the new standard.
Having an in-display sensor over a physical one isn't that much of a deal. Most people won't mind. But, ditching the headphone jack is definitely something that will anger quite a lot of users. Especially audiophile lovers who need their wired headphones.
Again, there is no evidence to back up this claim. But, the logic makes sense. If Samsung is willing to completely get rid of buttons, they may as well go all out and ditch the headphone jack as well.
If that turns out to be the case, then it will be quite a shame as the Note 9 is one of the very few devices to come with no compromises.
5: Same Display With a Modded Notch
The Galaxy S10 series, which is the latest flagship from Samsung at the moment, introduced the Infinity-O display. And if you don't know about it, that is basically a modded notch that sits on the upper right corner of the display.
Since Samsung decided to bring this design to their latest flagship, chances are that they'll do it with the Note 10 as well. It doesn't have to be a circular notch. It could be waterdrop styled or something like that.
As for the display itself, well, Samsung has been using AMOLED displays for years and chances are that this is not going to change now. Maybe we're going to see slightly higher resolutions and/or refresh rates. But, for the most part, that's about it.
Samsung Galaxy Note 10: Wrapping Up
Overall, we're expecting to see at least 2 different variants of the phone with options for huge storage and RAM. It goes without saying that a 5G version will come out, right?
