Photos of alleged screen protectors for the Samsung Galaxy Note 10 and Note 10+ leak

Photos of alleged screen protectors for the Samsung Galaxy Note 10 and Note 10+ leak
The Samsung Galaxy Note 10 and the Galaxy Note 10+ are expected to be introduced on August 7th during the next Samsung Unpacked event to be held in Brooklyn, New York. We should see two different versions of each model, one with 4G LTE connectivity and the other supporting 5G. Today, tipster Ice Universe tweeted photographs claiming to show screen protectors for both handsets. Based on the images, it would appear that the handsets will indeed have a punch-hole selfie camera placed in the middle of the display and a vertically mounted rear camera module on the upper left side of the back panel.

Both the Galaxy Note 10 (SM-N970 for the 4G LTE model, SM-N971 for the 5G version) and the Galaxy Note 10+ (SM-N975 for 4G LTE model, SM-N976 for the 5G variant) will be powered by the Snapdragon 855 Mobile Platform in the U.S. and the Exynos 9825 SoC just about everywhere else. The latest rumor has both models equipped with two Time of Flight (ToF) sensors, one in front and one in back. These sensors time how long it takes infrared light to hit the subject and bounce back to the phone providing more accurate depth calculations. This can be used to improve the bokeh (blur) on portraits and can also be used to create 3D mapping for facial recognition.


Besides the ToF sensor, the cameras could include a 12MP camera with variable aperture, a 12MP telephoto camera and a 16MP camera with Ultra wide-angle capabilities. Both models will also feature an ultrasonic in-display fingerprint scanner, PowerShare reverse wireless charging, and an IP68 certification rating. The latter means that both models are impervious to dust and can be submerged in up to 5-feet of water for 30 minutes. And don't forget that each Galaxy Note 10 and Galaxy Note 10+ phone will come with the S Pen. Last year Samsung added Bluetooth support to the stylus allowing it to be used to snap photographs, control streaming media and run a slideshow. This year, we haven't heard much about the tool indicating that we shouldn't expect to see any new functionality for it.

We could see the phones released out August 22nd based on the Galaxy Note 9's launch date last year


The Galaxy Note 10 should feature a 6.3-inch curved AMOLED display with a resolution of 1440 x 3040. That works out to an aspect ratio of 19:9. A 3400mAh battery is said to be in charge of providing power to the unit, and pricing could start in the $1,100-$1,200 range. The Galaxy Note 10+ is believed to be equipped with a 6.7-inch AMOLED display (also 1440 x 3040 for a 19:9 aspect ratio). Reportedly, this model will come with a 4500mAh battery and offer 25W fast charging.


While we are unsure about the possible configurations of each phone, we have seen benchmark tests for the Verizon version of the 5G Galaxy Note 10+ (SM-N976V) and the international variant of the same phone (SM-N976B). The former had 12GB of memory with the latter carried 8GB of RAM. There could be a version with 8GB of memory and 128GB of storage, one with 8GB of memory and 256GB of storage, and a unit with 12GB of memory with 512GB or 1TB of storage. All of these questions will surely be answered on August 7th.

We could see Samsung taking pre-orders for the Galaxy Note 10 and Galaxy Note 10+ immediately after the Unpacked event wraps up at Barclay's Center. Last year the Galaxy Note 9 was released 15 days after it was announced; using the same calculations for this year would give us a possible launch date of August 22nd.

Won't it come pre-installed with one like S10?

Hopefully they improved the hardware amd software of their cameras. That's the only reason I've been ditching my Samsung phones weeks after getting them. This time I'm not trusting any of those YT reviewers, I'll wait for xda and reddit users and see their real life experiences.

Or, OR, if it's worth it, you could buy the phone, test the cameras & everything else based on your everyday use & take it back if it's not up to your standards.

Wow, what a smart idea, how did you come up with it? See, when you want to act like a smartass, it's better for you to know some facts before doing so. Like for example, not everywhere you can return a phone after buying it, shocking, right?

Then get it or order it from someplace where you can return it. You can't possibly live in a place where you can only buy from one place & that's it.

Never heard of a screen protector for the back. Is that for real?

Seems kind of silly to me, but I guess they might appeal to someone who prefers to not use a case.

Easy there tiger. I was asking a serious question. No need for the snarky response. What are you, 12?

But you said you never head of a screen protector for the back? Unless you were living under a rock, there is no way you haven't heard of them. Have you not seen just that have front and back and even side protectors in the package? What do you think those plastic film ones are too? What about skins? Those are just decorative protectors. Unless you were born last night, there is no way you never had of back protectors. You can even get 9H ones for the back.

Please no more extra cameras after this. These manufacturers have lost me after 2.
