The Galaxy Note 10/+ look incredible in these leaked press renders

The Galaxy Note 10/+ look incredible in these leaked press renders
UPDATE: New renders showcasing the larger Galaxy Note 10+ have been added into the article. The updated story continues below.

###

With less than one month to go until Samsung introduces the Galaxy Note 10 at its Unpacked event in early August, official press renders have leaked out online completely showcasing the company’s next smartphone beasts.

A complete change in direction for the Galaxy Note series


Published first by WinFuture and followed up shortly after by Ishan Agarwal with watermark-less images, today’s set of press renders essentially confirm the Galaxy Note 10 design that Steve Hemmerstoffer leaked over one month ago. 

The smartphones pictured, which in the first gallery is the Galaxy Note 10 and in the second the Galaxy Note 10+. look totally different to the Galaxy Note 9 Samsung introduced just twelve months ago. The upcoming models sports large 6.3-inch and 6.75-inch Infinity-O displays respectively which are characterized by extremely thin bezels and a centered cutout towards the top. The latter houses what's expected to be a 10-megapixel selfie snapper and is paired with curved edges along either side of the displays and a slightly thicker chin that should be barely noticeable in person.

Moving over to the rear, the rather drastic design changes continue. Gone is Samsung's horizontal camera setup that has been used since the Galaxy Note 8 and in its place is a Huawei P30-like vertical camera setup that includes a total of three individual sensors. Much like the Galaxy S10+ that was released earlier this year, a 16-megapixel super-wide-angle camera is expected alongside a 12-megapixel telephoto alternative that'll support 2x optical zoom. As an added bonus for the larger device, an Time-of-Flight sensor has also been added to the rear.

Accompanying this should be Samsung's usual 12-megapixel sensor as the primary camera. In order to better differentiate the Galaxy Note 10 from previous devices, though, one pretty drastic upgrade in the form of a three-stage variable aperture lens is rumored. Since the Galaxy S9, Samsung has used a dual aperture system on its flagships which is designed to produce the best shots in both normal and low-light conditions. However, the cameras do often struggle in intermediate use cases, hence the upgraded system on the Galaxy Note 10.

The Galaxy Note 10 will introduce big internal upgrades too


Like the Galaxy S10 series that precedes it, the Samsung Galaxy Note 10 lineup will use different processors depending on the region its sold in. For the US market, as is often the case, the flagship will reportedly make use of Qualcomm's top-of-the-range Snapdragon 855 paired with a minimum of 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage. In Europe, however, the device is expected to use one of Samsung's own chips.

The Galaxy S10 lineup makes use of the Exynos 9820, thus making it the prime candidate for the Galaxy Note 10 and Note 10+. But according to recent reports, Samsung is actually developing an updated version of this processor for the Galaxy Note 10 series called the Exynos 9825 which will be built on the newer 7-nanometer process and boost both performance and efficiency slightly. In turn, this should bridge the rather noticeable gap between Samsung's own chips and Qualcomm's equivalents.

In Europe, the upcoming flagships are expected to ship with the same 8/128GB storage configuration as standard. Much like the Galaxy S10 series, though, other models with up to 12GB of RAM and 1TB of storage are possible in both Europe and the US.

Samsung Galaxy Note 10 release date


The Samsung Galaxy Note 10 will go official on August 7th alongside the bigger Galaxy Note 10+ and potentially the Galaxy Watch 2 and Galaxy Tab S6. Pre-orders are expected to commence immediately followed by shipments a couple of weeks later. The flagship will be available to purchase in black and a silver gradient color upon launch, although other finishes could make the cut too.

Leaks suggest Samsung is also preparing a 5G variant of the larger Galaxy Note 10+ which will be available to purchase as a Verizon exclusive in the US. However, relatively little is known about this offering at the moment.

This looks better than any phone, ANY OEM has ever made. The Galaxy S itself has looked better than any smartphone, since the S6. and I think the Note really got it really distinguished look away from the S line with the Note 5. For me the Note 2,3 and 4 all felt "utility" vs feeling "elegant". The Note 5 just didn't do it for me at all and I loved the Note 7 to it's death. The Note 8 and 9 just feel like a slightly larger Note 7, but less rounded. I preferred the Note 7's more S7 edge-like appeal and feel. The Note 8 and 9 feel a bit more elegant and less utility over its older plastic siblings. But the Note 10 looks like it gonna feel better and look better than any phone before it. That render looks like a $1000 phone, not saying it should be that price though. But that looks elegant. It subtle, it's sleek, it has clean lines and it looks a bit sexy where the device looks less masculine and more unisex and appealing. That color with that wallpaper really just brings it out. Whoever throws the first BOGO deal on it, I'm gonna jump on it. I will get the 5G version for sure. Even though my Note 9 has been fast and rock solid, I need a new "toy" now.

As for the Galaxy note 10 bring the most beautiful phone of all time we'll, I respectfully disagree, I think that title belongs to the legendary iPhone 4. God, that phone is a masterpiece, the design for the time was so leaps and bounds beyond the rest of the industry that phones are emulating it almost 10 years after release. The stainless steel and glass sandwich was outright visionary and a clear game changer.

100%. I remember holding the iPhone 4 for the 1st time, and it was the 1st time I held a phone and didn't only think of it as a piece of gadget, but also a luxury item.

If ever a phone was called sexy... This just screams a thousand dollar.

BTW, this wipes away the OnePlus 7 pro out the waters with everything. The op7p with it's unappealing curves and especially the pop-up camera just looks like a downright clown and a complete joker in everyday use (when u use the selfie camera). There a reason the big dogs aren’t using the pop out system.

The Galaxy Note 10 is probably going to be quite a lot more expensive than the OnePlus 7 Pro, so it's probably not the fairest of comparisons. Although I do agree that the pop-out camera design looks quite crappy.

DO you think it will cost more than the S10 +?

29. oldskool50 unregistered

There is no phone you can compare to the Note anyways. The iPhone XS Max and the Huawei P30 Pro are better up against the S. The Note is just hands down a beast. What I am disappointed about is, they have a full screen display. Why aren't they using it on the Note or S? Am sure they will for the S/Note 11, but they did it for the A series. Why not the flagships? Or maybe doing it for a lesser phone, gets the production going and gets the cost down faster before putting it on the S or Note?

I'm a Note fan, owning since the 3. But, I have to disagree w the pop up comment. Because of it, One+ has brought a near bezelless design with NO compromising punch hole or notch. And the front is beautiful. For me, I'd choose the pop-up or even more so the pop up and flip that Samsung has on the A8(?) I think. 99.9% of the time the pop up is unseen and 100% of the time the display is not married with a dead spot in the middle of the view. The only downside is having moving parts and vulnerable parts if the auto retract is not fast enough. I could easily live w this punchole, but consider the pop up superior for my usage.

I like the pop out but the oneplus was too big, to heavy, and difficult to operate. I sent mine back within a week. Decided to go with the Note or Pixel 4 (the more likely choice)

Definitely prefer the pop out camera compared to a damn notch or punch hole. A screen complete is the most important thing to me. But we'll see what I upgrade to... Note 10+ or OnePlus 7 Pro...

Exactly!!! Imagine if your TV had a hole punch for some reason... it would drive you mad!

I really like the idea of the pop out camera, somebody just needs to implement it better. The punch hole in the screen doesn't bother me much but i could certainly live without it and the pop out camera seems like it would be an excellent solution smaller bezels without sacrificing a piece of the screen

Agreed. I don't do video calls much and not addicted to taking selfies, so I'd prefer the pop up camera to keep it tucked away out of harms way.

Totally agree, It is beautiful . The new camera placement is growing on me but still a fan of the horizontal cameras.

Oh what aload of rubbish, the best looking phone ever by any OEM?? It's ugly and the colour copies Huawei breathing crystal on P30 Pro which actually looks better looking than this Note 10. Samsung cameras are no longer the best and neither is their battery life either. Huawei tops the market for battery life, camera quality especially night mode and better updates than Samsung too. And One UI icons is ugly too

Soooooo when the first car company came out with a color and then other car companies followed suit with a copying? I didn't know that colors had a copyright. And the rest of your comment is just plain asinine.

LMAO little triggered Huawei makes a good phone, I agree. Better then the note, not a chance in hell. Let's see who gets phone of the year, bet it wont be Huawei. As far as cameras , Google Pixel takes that prize then Samsung and apple run neck and neck.

Did they shrink down the bottom bezel from the S10+? Either way, it looks closer to symmetrical

21. kplayon

yes. But i wish it was exactly symmetrical even if it's a lil larger forehead

Incredible might be pushing it. I've never been interested in the Note line, but this should mean the S11 will look similar (at least concerning bezels, anyway).

27. pimpin83z

Incredible is more than suitable. Also, since the S line launches give or take 6 months before the Note, it's always been the former being a preview of what will be bigger and better on the latter.
