Leaked Galaxy Note 10 Pro renders show massive display, quad camera

Just 24 hours after the first CAD-based renders of the Galaxy Note 10 leaked out, tipster Steve Hemmerstoffer is back with new renders of the Galaxy Note 10 Pro that showcase what is almost certainly the flagship’s final design.

Symmetrical bezels up front, four cameras on the rear


As you'd expect, the Galaxy Note 10 Pro doesn't differ too much from the standard Galaxy Note 10 when it comes to looks. The main reason for this is the curved AMOLED display up front which, once again, arrives paired with minimal side bezels, an in-screen fingerprint scanner, symmetrical upper and lower bezels, and a small punch hole for the front-facing camera. This time around, though, the display's diagonal has been increased to a whopping 6.75-inches – the Galaxy Note 10 will apparently include a 6.3-inch panel.

Taking a look at the rear of the smartphone, the triple-camera setup found on the smaller flagship has been retained. But in order to better differentiate the two, the Galaxy Note 10 Pro will seemingly include a second column to the right that'll house a dedicated Time-of-Flight sensor, an LED flash, and what could potentially be a laser autofocus system.

Overall, the flagship's quadruple-camera setup should be comparable to the one found on Samsung's Galaxy S10 5G. In fact, rumor has it the smartphone will simply borrow its sensors from that device. If true, consumers can expect to find a main 12-megapixel snapper paired with a variable aperture lens, a 12-megapixel super-wide-angle camera that supports a 123-degree field of view, and a 16-megapixel snapper coupled with a 2x telephoto zoom lens.

Completing the external setup looks set to be a stereo speaker setup that pairs the in-ear speaker with a bottom-firing one and the Galaxy Note line's iconic S Pen stylus. Also present is a USB-C port along the bottom of the smartphone and what appears to be an IR Blaster on top. Unfortunately, fans of the 3.5mm headphone jack appear to be out of luck as today's CAD-based renders suggest the port won't be present. Another missing feature is the dedicated Bixby button.

Snapdragon 855 for the US and a new chip for Europe


Like most 2019 flagships including Samsung's own Galaxy S10 series, the Galaxy Note 10 Pro is expected to arrive powered by Qualcomm's Snapdragon 855 in the US. But as is often the case, European consumers and many other international buyers are set to receive an Exynos-powered model. And if rumors are to be believed, an upgrade could be on the cards.

Although the Exynos 9820 that Samsung uses inside the Galaxy S10 lineup for Europe isn't a weak processor, it often struggles to keep up with Qualcomm's alternative in terms of  performance and battery life due to the fact that it's built on an 8-nanometer manufacturing process rather than the newer 7-nanometer process. With the Galaxy Note 10 and Note 10 Pro, Samsung is reportedly aiming to close this gap by introducing a new chip called the Exynos 9825.

As its name indicates, the chip will be an improved version of the Exynos 9820 that should hopefully offer a slight improvement in performance, but more importantly, it'll apparently be manufactured on the 7-nanometer process. This should translate into improved efficiency and better battery life for users, thus reducing the differences between the Snapdragon and Exynos variants of Samsung's upcoming flagships.

Samsung Galaxy Note 10 Pro release date and availability


The Galaxy Note 10 Pro is expected to arrive in early or mid-August alongside the more compact Galaxy Note 10. Pre-orders for the two flagships are expected to commence immediately after the introduction event and should precede a launch in late August or early September.

Pricing information in addition to pre-order bundles are yet to be confirmed, but a report published last month suggested the Galaxy Note 10 Pro would be available to purchase in Prism Black, Prism White, and a new silver color that could resemble the gradient Prism Silver Galaxy S10+. Also, in regards to the standard Galaxy Note 10, this model is expected to arrive in gradient blue and silver finishes in addition to Prism Black, Prism White, Flamingo Pink, and Cardinal Red.

Very nice looking & the white looks nice, as long as its not ultra shiny. Yes after using Samsung phone for several years I really dislike Samsung curved edges, just add glare to the sides. just go back to flat.

Why in the world does samsung insist making these curved screens? They're nothing special, there's no practical reason, and it adds glare no matter how you angle it... I want Note series without curved edges, please.

I agree, you do have an ugly face. But they should go for a pop up cam.

And you saw him where? I don't know about this guy, but Note 10's face with that punch hole is definitely ugly. It's time Samsung employs some sort of popup mechanism. Although this is one of those devices where white colour looks so much better. Actually digging overall design especially back. Copied Sony and did a much better job then them. Kudos

I believe that he was just kidding. So you should've just laughed instead of getting all serious and saying 'whered you see him'? We need to lighten up sometimes.

Why? At least Samsung includes wireless earbuds at launch. Who else does that?

I wanted to say the same thing : the design reminds me of Sony XZP. Finally Samsung realized that boxy, monolithic design looks so much better and professional than very curved, soap-shaped phones.

Look up the Nokia N9 from 2011, that was the original design.

I've always loved the squarish corners design. It's just more manly and pro like u said. It fits best particularly with minimal bezels just like this design. Only corcern is the curve screen spilling over to the side frame. Now your gripping screen to when u hold the phone naturally.

For anybody wondering exactly how big this thing is and how it compares to other devices: Galaxy Note 10 Pro: 162.3 x 77.4 x 7.9mm Galaxy S10 5G: 162.6 x 77.1 x 7.9 mm Galaxy S10+: 157.6 x 74.1 x 7.8 mm Galaxy Note 10: 151 x 72 x 7.9mm Galaxy S10: 149.9 x 70.4 x 7.8 mm

How the hell did they manage a 6.3" screen in 151mm diagonal?

Slightly thinner bezels than on the Galaxy S10 and a wider phone

Its a con, the screen curves over the edge, but the edge just adds glare.

Wow, the plain Note 10 looks really attractive at 151mm tall, 6.6 mm shorter and 2mm narrower than the S10+. Not overly big. Looks like Samsung has finally got rid of the chin and reduced the overall height. And single selfie camera cutout, placed in the center. Another great improvement. If the Exynos 9820 biggest "flaw" - the 8nm process which is 15% less efficient than the SD855 by physics - will be fixed too, I think the Note 10 will be a really great phone. Really nice job from Samsung on this, if the specs are accurate. It will be worth the money. If it has a notification LED (a must for business users) I will be really tempted.
